Conneaut, Williams Grove, Lakemont, Waldameer, Hershey, Kennywood.
For starters :)

Definitely stop at Kennywood. While I'm not a big fan of wood, PR is AMAZING! A truly unique and airtime filled coaster. SFWoA is right along the highway between Kennywood and CP.
As you cut across PA, there's SFGAdv. which I'd imagine is your home park, Dorney (Talon is the best inverted I've been on, better than Alpie and Raptor), Knoebel's (which has some great wood, but
I've never been there...), and Hershey is in there too (I didn't think great bear or wildcat were much to write home about, but I haven't been on LR).

Also, RCDB has a distance feature that will let you check the distance from major cities of any parks in the country...

Good luck!

Both Kennywood and SFWOA are in one day driving distance of Cedar Point, but I believe Kennywood is easily more than a 100 hundred miles from CP. You can always check it out on a mapping program.

And, MrMightyMouse, what grade are you in? You misspelled V I S I T for crying out loud.

Other than SFWoA, Wyandot Lake and Memphis Kiddie Park, there really isn't anything else within a hundred miles.  See for yourself.

I think Cedar Point should be one of the side trips on the way to Paramount's Kings Island, but that's just my opinion. :)

The answer depends on how you're getting to Cedar Point and how long you'll be on the road.  If you're driving from New York, then a properly-planned route can snag Great Adventure, Dorney, Dutch Wonderland, Hershey, William's Grove, Knoebels, DelGrosso's, Lakemont, Kennywood, Conneaut Lake, Six Flags Worlds of Adventure, and finally Cedar Point on the way out, with some meandering about.  (The exact order may vary a bit, I'd need to pull up some maps)

If you're flying to Cleveland and going from there, SFWoA is about it.  If you fly to Pittsburgh, then Kennywood, Conneaut, SFWoA wouldn't be TOO unreasonable.

If you go across NY instead of PA, (like most people that prefer the shortest way from New York to Cleveland) then there's SFDL outside Buffalo.

I was gonna try and make it to Cedar Point this summer as well for my first visit.  If me and my crew go we'll probably hit the following parks:

PKI, CP, SFWoA, Kennywood(possibly)

We know that theres a lot more we can do, but we need to keep it short since we're doing a Maryland, Virginia, South/North Carolina tirp as well.

If you take I-78 out of Manhattan, you'll pass right by Dorney Park, which you can see from the road.  Be careful, though.  I got a speeding ticket right there 'cause I didn't pay attention to the signs (I was too enthralled by Talon!)

You'll also come within 20 miles or so of Hersheypark when you're near Harrisburg.  But, that's out of the way if you're looking for a fast trip to Cedar Point.

If you take I-80, you pass a whole lot of corn and cows.  However, Knoebel's is midway between I-80 and I-78, I think.  I'm not quite sure exactly where it is, though, because it was pouring rain when I planned to visit on my trip home from CP.  By the way, I'm from Long Island :-)

If you take the southerly route through Pennsylvania, which is the Turnpike (I-76), you'll be in the neighborhood of Hershey, Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, and Kennywood in Pittsburgh.

Once you're in Ohio, Six Flags Worlds of Adventure is just a short drive from I-80 (The Ohio Turnpike).

When I went, we took the GWB to I-80, which we followed all the way through Pa. and Oh.  It's a long, boring drive, but I think it's the fastest direct route.  Minus a few detours, it took us about 11 hours to get from Long Island to Cedar Point.
