Cedar Point in Inclement Weather
Who likes the rain when they are supposed to be visiting an
amusement park? Even the best forecasters cannot predict all of the
afternoon squalls. Don't want to sit under a canopy while it rains for
a couple of hours? Follow this guide and you might hope that it
doesn't stop raining.
Many rides will still be open in the rain. When most people run to
the dryness of a nearby shop, you can be riding Millennium Force.
Millennium Force, as well as Power Tower, can and do run in rain, as
long as the rain is not extremely heavy and there is no lightning.
Weather changes quickly in the Sandusky area, so it can rain in the
morning, and the coasters and other rides will open back up in the
afternoon. Disaster Transport, the indoor bobsled roller coaster, will
be open in almost any kind of weather, and some covered flat rides
will run in the rain as well.
Shows and Shopping
Cedar Point has award winning live entertainment, so inclement
weather may allow you to explore that. Be sure to pick up a schedule
and get to the venue hosting the show early, because if there is bad
weather, the shows are sure to be crowded. Also, Cedar Point has
dozens of little shops where you can have a great time shopping. Be
sure to check out the candle shop on the Frontier Trail, you can spend
a chunk of time making your own hand-dipped candle there.
Other things to do
The Town Hall Museum in Frontierland is a great place to spend
time in bad weather. The Town Hall Museum has a wealth of information
pertaining to Cedar Point's history, as well as a video about Cedar
Point and several old fashioned nickel and dime games. Cedar Point
also has several huge arcades located throughout the premises, you can
easily spend an hour or two playing games. You might also want to
catch a bite to eat at one of The Point's sit down restaurants and
wait out the rain. Also check out
