For my family it has to be four.  My grandparents, Parents, my sisters and I and my neices.    It could possibly be five, not sure about Great-Grandparents.

I'm a third generation fan of the park. In terms of my extended family, though, we are another four generation group.

3rd generation here

The funny thing was my mom, grandma, and a few aunts and uncles were in the park on July 4, 1969 when they had that really bad storm that flooded the Causeway.  They were forced to stay over night in Breakers, when they had a hotel on the mainland.

My grandparents went to CP back when you got there by ferry.  My parents went, they started taking me when I was 10, and I've been taking my son since he was 8.  Four generations.

I'm not sure, but I believe my grand parents made it to CP in the 70's. My parents and my brothers and I have as well. So it's 3 for me.

I don't know for sure, but I'm fairly certain that my great grandmother did. Why? Well, it's what people did in the early part of the 20th century. They got on the train that took them from Cleveland to Cedar Point. I think Idora Park may have also been a destination, but I'm not sure about Chippewa Lake.

Ohio is actually full of places like that. It's a miracle that Cedar Point even survived. There's a great Web site on the old trolley parks and early Ohio amusement parks somewhere... anyone got the URL handy?

Cool Thread
My great grandparents,   grandparents and parent's usually went once a year.  I remember my grandfather telling me stories about great grandma taking him to the park and riding cyclone!
 
So I am 4th generation at least. :) . I know i have 5 or 6 generations up here and they probably went sometime. (my family is still young and they were around in the 20th century)
