I live on Staten island in NYC and took Me between 8 and 9hrs to get to Cedarpoint stoping for about 5 to 10 mins 4 times, but if i would have went straight trou then prop 7hrs no stop... I also drove at night time so i dont run into traffic. Once out of P.A your preety much almost there.... when driving your going to relize how big P.A acutaly is!... Have fun.....

While you're on the Internet, pop on over to http://www.mapquest.com. Go to driving directions, then pop in the origin as your own starting point (your residence or other) then pop into destination Sandusky, Ohio. I did this for my summer trip to CP and it gives a good approximation for timing in the most efficient route it finds.

That sounds about right. You can cut some time off if you're speeding, but above 73-75 is just asking for trouble. It's a long state to drive through, pennsylvania. Ohio isn't nearly so bad.

i'd budget 10 hours to make it through. It gets pretty boring as you'll be on the same interstate for literally the whole trip minus 20 minutes

The most accurate mileage site is www.mile.com

It is intended for trucking companies, and that's why it is much more accurate than say mapquest. The bad part is you have to download the demo(only take a few minutes with a 56K.)

Also consider that Pennsylvania loves to fix their roads during summer, although with this years mild winter, things might not be so bad. I lost about 1/2 hour due to construction on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in 2000.
The word "definitely" is definitely the most misspelled word on the buzz.
