Cars go pretty fast. If you don't want to drive you could always take an airplaine.

I don't recommend walking because it would probably take a REALLY long time. Same with a bicycle, but that would be the most economical. *** Edited 3/24/2004 8:09:45 AM UTC by dexter***

Would a bicycle really be the most economical? Surely it would take a number of days to make the trip...think of all the hotels rooms you'd need. Unless, of course, you camp.

Walking and camping would be the most economical. Teleport [as soon as it's invented] would be the quickest.

The fastest *and* most economical way would be to hang out on the airport runway, and grab the landing gear of a plane that's taking off. Just keep doing that until you get one that's going to Cleveland.

You didn't mention it, but if you're concerned about safety, I would not recommend Den's suggestion. Hitchhiking might give you better odds of surviving, but it's also risky. So many crazies out there.

I think what they are telling you, CoasterMNguy, is you should be a bit more specific.

No, what we're saying is that if he looked at a map he would have had his answer yesterday.

No, I totally understand that I could drive, or fly, but I am just asking people who live in Minnesota that have gone to Cedar Point what the best way to go is. My question was totally ligit. Writing past experiences would probably be the best way to respond to this post. And you all know what I mean, I don't have to be more specific.

From MN, head north/north west across Canada and into Alaska. Continue on to the Bering Strait. Cross via boat or small charter plane into Siberia. Once in Siberia, travel west/south west to Moscow. At Moscow, travell west to Calais France. Take the Chunnel to England. In England, go to Hethrow Airport and hop a trans Atlantic Flight to NYC. From NYC, catch a bus, train, car, what ever and travel west. When you get to Ohio, CP will be on your right.

Of course, that is the scenic route.

Quickest way?

"Mr. Kinzel, four to beam up!"

Welcome to CoasterBuzz! Please note that you have just used your One Free Dopey Question bonus and future questions will result in...whoops, too late.

Thanks to Northworst, flying anywhere from Minneapolis will pretty much suck pricewise unless it's LAX, JFK or somewhere everybody flies anyway.

It's about a ten-hour drive from the Twin Cities and real drivers handle that in a day. 94E to 90/94 to 90 to 290 to 294 (avoiding Chicago) to 80/94 to 80 till you get to ohio then keep going till you get there.

Want more detailed directions? Use mapblast.com or something. I know I do.

coasterMNguy - are there really that many options? If you're driving it seems to me you have two choices:

1] You can take interstates south-east down thru Madison, Chicago, and then east across to Sandusky.

...or...

2] You can take interstates east to Lake Michigan, ferry across, and then more interstates south-east thru Michigan and then east into Ohio and to Sandusky.

Either route above route, Minneapolis to Sandusky is about 700 miles. If I were you, I'd fly to Cleveland and rent a car.

And if that's not the info you were looking for, then you do need to be more specific.

No problem. Oh--when you start your car, you might wanna turn your key to the right.

Need anybody to chew your lunch for you and spit it in your mouth?

Simple question, simple answer, simple to find! It took me 2 minutes at Yahoo Maps to get that info. Would that have been so difficult for you to do, coasterMNguy?

And Playa? LOL! It never ceases to amaze me how some people can't get their own answers when they have the internet at their fingertips.

Turn your key to the right? Weird, I always turn mine away from me.

I like this solution economical and environmental friendly....

Of course if your not concerned by either of those, there is always flying...

When I drive to Cedar Point, I usualy take I-94 east which will take you through Chicago area than you can hope on I-80 east and that can take you all the way to Sandusky exits. Thats one way to go and you could take the same way back to.

Which is great if you like tearing your hair out in clumps. Take the loop. Why would anyone in their right mind drive through Milwaukee and the heart of Chicago?
