Reviews for the roller coasters/rides at Cedar Point:
Top Thrill Dragster: This is a great roller coaster if you like a sudden rush of adrenaline at 120 MPH. The feeling of floating over the top of the hill is amazing, Some mornings you have a chance of going in reverse!
Maverick: This is a quick-paced ride with sudden dips and turns. The restraints are really uncomfortable when you are constantly moving your head around.
Millennium Force: I understand how this ride is always voted the best steel roller coaster in the world. It lives up to its hype. The WHOLE ride is smooth and fast. The drop doesn't give you the "butterflies in your stomach feeling." This is a good choice if you don't like that feeling.
Mean Streak: Broken down when we went, but when isn't it?
Blue Streak: Very rough and short. Not a great combination.
Raptor: In my opinion, the ride is slow and kinda boring. It is a little rough near the end. It is also VERY loud.
GateKeeper: It would of been a great ride if the restraints weren't as uncomfortable. They dug into your collarbone and would lock even farther when you leaned back like a seat-belt. It was probably the most uncomfortable restraints I've ever experienced.
Wicked Twister: Not a bad ride, the launches are fun, but I wish the train would go farther up the towers.
Cedar Creek Mine Ride: A good kids warmer-upper. Lots of curves, lots of fun.
Corkscrew: A good classic ride that is short and mild.
Iron Dragon: This is a fun ride if you sit in the back. You feel like you are going faster
Gemini: I really like this ride for some reason. The drops and turns while racing are very amusing
Mantis: THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE RIDE I'VE EVER BEEN ON. The g-forces on your feet kill you. This is not a great stand up roller coaster.
Magnum XL-2000: This is a very rough steel coaster, The restraints are rock hard. They kill you on the last set of hills, This coaster been known to break down climbing the 1st hill.
WindSeeker: More for the views than the thrills, This ride has been down for most of 2012 due to ride problems.
Power Tower: Drops like halfway and then stops. Boring.
Skyhawk: Broken down for entire 2013 season, due to company that makes Skyhawk went bankrupt and finding parts is very rare!
maXair: This is my favorite flat ride. So much airtime and it is FAST.
Shoot The Rapids: This water ride has been closed since July 19, 2013, a boat carrying seven passengers went backwards down the first lift hill and flipped over, injuring seven riders on board; one was taken to a local hospital and later released. The ride is expected to reopen for the 2014 Season.
OTHER TIPS: * If you have a Season Pass, Where ever you buy food/drink/merchandise show your pass and ask for a discount, You be surprised how much money you'll save! * Ride Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster as much as humanly possible. * Get Fast Lane Plus. A little expensive, but you WILL NOT regret it. * Get a Souvenir Bottle for $10.71, With refills all season long for only $0.99+Tax, It will pay for itself quickly. * Watch Luminosity. What an amazing show!! - Opens May 30, 2014 for 2014 Season * Wear clothes that will dry fast if you plan on riding the water rides. They will get you soaked. Rental lockers are available for under $1.00 * Keep in mind food/drink is really, really overpriced! Eat before you come, eat lunch in the park, and then wait till after the park until you eat. It will save you lots of money.

Awesome information BigBoyMichigan! Thanks so much!
Does anyone know if the Cedar Point resorts offer last minute markdowns on rooms? We're going next week and since it's so early in the season, I'm not worried about the hotels filling up. But I am wondering if I can get a cheaper rate if I wait to book our room. Does anyone know?
It sure would be nice, but have in my many years not seen it to be true. Too many attractions in the area that 'attract' people- especially when the weather breaks. You risk having to scrounge around and pay full price in a less-than-acceptable room. I wish you happy hunting
Well if your from Michigan I saw a nice deal where you get an Adult Cedar Point Ticket and Round-Trip Bus Transportation for $79.00 per person. One even came with an All-Ya-Can-Eat Buffet coupon check above under "Bus Charters" for info.
