Cedar Point is to roller coaster enthusiasts what Italy is to foodies. The world’s best roller coasters are packed onto a narrow peninsula jutting out onto Lake Erie, where spectacular water views await atop some of the tallest thrill rides on the planet. Steep drops, neck-breaking turns, and cell-phone-stealing inversions await below.
The problem, of course, is that if you go to Cedar Point on a summer weekend everyone in Ohio and the surrounding states will be there with you, meaning you’ll spend most of your day shuffling through lines in the hot summer sun rather than screaming your face off. The key is to know which are the best rides at Cedar Point — the ones worth braving the lines for — and which just aren’t worth the time. In the name of public service, we rode and ranked every roller coaster at Cedar Point (from worst to best), and we tell you how tall Cedar Point roller coasters are, their duration and their speed. Plus, you’ll find Cedar Point roller coasters map at the end of the post.
