PointBuzz celebrates 10 years of entertaining Cedar Point fans

Posted Wednesday, April 9, 2008 10:51 AM | Contributed by Jeff

PointBuzz.com, the world's most popular unofficial Cedar Point fan Web site, is celebrating its tenth anniversary this month. Since April 1998, the site has served as a home for millions of fans, critics and tourists of the famed amusement park on the North Coast.

PointBuzz made its debut in 1998 as Guide to The Point, and featured photos and tips for enjoying the park. Later that year, a forum was added, and the birth of an extensive community began to grow. In 2000, Schmidt published a site called Virtual Midway, with his trademark panoramic photos from the park. In May of 2004, the two sites joined forces to start PointBuzz. The site attracts more than a million visitors every year.

I found GTTP about four years ago when planning my first trip back to Cedar Point since high school with my then new girlfriend Monica. GTTP introduced me to Coasterbuzz which introduced me to a whole slew of new parks and coasters.

Congrats on ten years!
