I am making my very first trip out to Cedar Point next week and I was wondering where I should sleep. My plan was to drive down on Sunday, get a night pass, and then sleep over night and spend the next day there, spend one more night, then start the ride home the following day. I am on a limited budget and it should be just my brother and myself. Thanx for the help!

your best bet if your trying to save $$ is to find a hotel a bit of a drive away from CP, all the nice ones near CP are up there in price and all the real cheap ones are well I tried them but basically walked in and went right back to the desk and always ended up with a more expensive stay, but if you go away from the sandusky area decent ones will be cheaper. I also have better luck when staying with hotel chains Ive stayed at before. But I see it like this when traveling with women better find a nice hotel, when traveling with buds heck we've slept in our cars in the winter before, make sure you find a hotel before going though on some days it can be next to impossible and nerve racking finding one.
Hello, I am going to Cedar Point again this year next week. I Stay about 10-15 mins away from the park at a place called Lakeland Lodges. ITs a nice little cottage on lake erie with a kitchen and a bathroom and a little dinning room and bedroom. $350 for the whole week. Its a very nice place. www.lodgesonthelake.com or www.lodgesbythelake.com I forget which one it is. Its very nice check it out and let me know how you make out. Thanks!

The Maples Motel is a sweet little getaway from the hustle and bustle of Cedar Point, its nearby the point and quite cozy, they even have a pool. You can see dragster from the back yard. Its located near a train crossing which can bother some, management offers earplugs for light sleepers. Donuts and Coffee in the office each morning too.
Tell them Sam sent you, and they'll give you a nice rate. ------------------ never met a coaster I didn't ride (except Junior Geminii) :(
The lawn out in front of the Good Time Theater, or under a shade tree on the lawn between the Cadillac Cars and the aforementioned Theater seems to be a popular place for people to sleep. That and I hear the picnic tables under the Blue Streak turnaround are fairly nice as well, for that mid-afternoon nap.
Once you ride Big Bad Wolf any suspended coaster after that is compared to BBW. I personal think that Iron Dragon is not very exciting. But we are all intitled to our own thoughts and comments cause this is the great land of america!

There are some pretty nice hotels on the 250 strip that are pretty affordable. I'd recommend the hotels that are more south than all of the stores, fast food chains, etc. However, if it is a very busy day, traffic gets reeeealy backed up on 250/Milan Rd., full of Michigooners who can't drive. So I'd ask a local (coming from a former local myself) about the Chasuee (sp?)-pronounced, shaw-say. That's my advice.
------------------ Well, I used to be able to see TTD from my house, then I moved. Life's not fair.
There is a nice campground down on 250 in Milan next to the Nickle Plate Railroad and the Turnpike, If you get a site on the south fence you will be as close to trains as you ever want to be w/o being a passenger ;)
