The 2nd week of July this summer, I will be driving to Cedar Point from NYC. I am not sure how many days i should stay. Can you do the entire park in one day? Or i have to go for 2 days? Please write back ASAP because i have to book the hotel.. Thanks!

It depends on whether you want to just ride the coasters and some flats or you want to see and do everything. If it's the later, you'll need two days. If it's a weekend in July, I would also recommend two days. Ah hell, just make it two days.

2nd week in July? The park will most definatly be jam packed. All schools are out for the summer so I don't think you will even be able to do everything in 2 days. I remember going in the middle of the summer and staying a full day and only riding 5 rides. Double that for two days plus a few and you get about 13.

Only 5 rides? Im sure, you can easily hit all 14 in a day. But to spend better quality time Id say two days.

I would say that because you are going in July, a stay of two days or more is needed. I would suggest staying at the Breakers hotel just for the convenience. It will cost you but worth it in my book. In July you will want to hit as many coasters as you can before noon. Head straight to MF for this will be the shortest line all day. Or you may want to go for the Wicked Twister. MF will probably be the better ride. Lots of things to do at CP other than coasters. The water park, while extra money, is great to hang out at mid-afternoon when the lines on the rides are long. I would suggest a two day stay. One the first day go in the park at opening and stay till 1 or 2 then head to the water park till 5 or 6 six and then back into the park for more rides and the laser show. Second day:same thing except during the prime hours hit some shows, grab a beer (or pop) and relax as you watch the lines on the coasters hit a couple hr wait. You could also rent a jet ski or go parasailing. Both expensive but fun. Hey...theres always the beach and thats free. To really enjoy all that is offered you will need a couple days. Don't rush around and stress yourself out. Take your time and enjoy one of the best parks in the world (notice I said ONE not THE). Have fun.

Stay 2 days, definitely. You'll want all the time you can get. The park has so much to do in it. Plus, in July, it'll be busy, I'm sure!!!

Spend 2 days. Ride everything in the first day (or as close to all as you can) then the 2nd day, finish your track record then ride your favorites the rest of the day.

You can still go one day and hit all the coasters multiple times.:)

You can certainly hit every coaster in one day in July, but you're going to feel rushed. What's the point of that if it's a vacation? If you can stay two days, do it. Since you're from NYC, stop at Dorney and get a season pass. You can use it at Cedar Point.

And one more suggestion, if you are coming on a weekend.......make sure you go to the park on Sunday. The lines are much shorter, and Saturdays have that park filled to the brim. In fact a Sunday/Monday combo works out quite nicely.

Definitely 2 days and get there early, when i went last year they opened the park a half hour early. The only coasters that have big lines are MF Raptor,and WT, so hit those first or just before closing. All the other coaster you get right on if your going during Mon-Fri. Ajrides. B&MRULES!!!!!!!

What if he knows he's not going to return for a long time? He'd better experience the most with the time he's got.

-I'm not one of those people who go on vacation just to fry on the beach, or stay in the hotel room during evenings.

Traveling is all about experiencing the most fun, staying up as late as you can, and waking up early (often with a hangover)

Tip for hitting all the coasters in a day:

Start in the back of the park and work your way to the front.

I see it happen every year, the GP ride what they first see. For example, in the morning, Raptor (front of the park) usualy has a 45 min-1 1/2 hour wait. Afternoon - late afternoon the wait could be as little as 10-20 minutes.

Ur best bet is to go for two days. I suggest you stay at one of the on site hotels becuase if you want to leave the park and go back in ur right there. I did the whole park in one day,but it was one long day! I took from 9am- 9pm ,and that still wasent enough time. The day before i just went into ride MF which was too crowded and some other rides. When I drove from NYC it took about 9hrs ,and I with that you also give urself time to rest before getting back on the road. Good luck ,and I dont think going to Dorney park on the way would make any sence becuase its all the way in allentown and ur driving along the I95 which is a preety long way. (allentown is in the middel of P.A ur driving along the top portion,Have fun andI hope to read a trip report.
