Yesterday was awesome! I went to Cedar Point with my boyfriend and a few friends. First road trip without an adult! Woohoo! lol. Anyways, it was an awesome adventure and very fun once we got there as well. If you don't know all that much Cedar Point is in Sandusky, Ohio. It's this amazingly large amusement park with 17 roller coasters, thrill rides, plenty of children's rides and another park next to it called Soak City. Which, as you may have guessed, is a water park. There mascot is Snoopy and mostly all the kids rides have such theme.

The Trip There.
Anyways, on with my trip! Well, we googled how to get there and instead of taking the normal route we took a completely different one. So basically it was a way we have never gone before. Well, were doing good for the first hour and what happens? We go West instead of East in downtown Detroit!! So, we figure well get off the express way and turn right around in a pretty dangerous neighborhood. We get back on and finally where back where we need to be. Then were good for another hour or so and one of our friends opens up the window and guess what goes out that window? Our directions!! So we basically winged it all the way there. We called his mom for directions which really didn't help. But we finally got there and all was good.
Okay, Cedar Point is really fun. But it's also really expensive. The ticket to get in is $44. Then just to park its $10. Pop that would normally be $1 in a machine is $3 in the machine. Subway in the park is about $3 more than if you bought it normally and a stuffed animal the size of a pop bottle[[Which sadly I bought anyways]] is $9.99. I took $40 with me and left with $5 which i spent on Burger King. But all the rides where super fun and the longest line we waited in was 45 minutes. The Dragster, which is 420ft high at 270 degrees and launches you at 120 mph takes only 17 seconds to finish, was a 2 hour wait in line. So we didn't ride that one. But other than that it was an awesome day and I had alot of fun.
The ride home...
Was very sleepy. But i managed to stay awake because everyone else besides Alex[[obviously he had to drive.lol]] was asleep. And while they were sleeping we got a little lost. Mostly because we heard on the radio that a tank exploded when it hit a bridge and we didn't want to go that way because we needed to be home by midnight since none of us are 17[[yet!!]] But we made it home with 4 minutes to spare!
If you ever have the opportunity to go to Cedar Point i suggest you do! It's awesome fun and it creates great memories!!
