Sandusky, Ohio: Family-Friendly Town with Amusement Parks Along Lake Erie

The town of Sandusky lies on the shores of Lake Erie, about midway between Cleveland and Toledo. It’s a family-friendly destination with a slew of theme parks and scenic coastal islands. Cedar Point, open May through October, is one of the oldest amusement parks in the United States and a must-do for thrill seekers. The park’s Millennium Force roller coaster set records as the tallest and fastest in the world when it was introduced in 2000. More recently, the GateKeeper scooped up seven world records when it opened in 2013, including the “longest drop on a wing coaster.”

If you prefer a slower pace, visit Sandusky’s former post office, which has been transformed into the Merry-Go-Round Museum. The grand building is full of antique carousels of all shapes and sizes, restored to their original splendor; it’s also rumored to house a couple of ghosts. More spooky fun awaits at Ghostly Manor Thrill Center, which features a haunted house, a roller rink, a 4D theater, black-light mini golf, and bounce houses.

Beds are hard as a rock and pillows felt very cheap and thin, facility’s were nice and updated we enjoyed the water park and arcade, staff was friendly. The breakfast wasn’t anything to rave about.

Perfect Family Getaway for under $110 🙌🏾 Nice Waterpark My Groupon wasn’t able to be found upon arrival, but they were able to find it after they called their reservation department. The staff were really nice. The room and facility was clean. It was outdated, but clean! I will definitely visit again! I gave a 4/5 because their weren’t many healthy food options on the premises.
