SANDUSKY, Ohio (WANE) – Cedar Point has once again been named “Best Amusement Park” in USA TODAY’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards. The park beat other famous travel destinations in Florida, Virginia, Tennessee and more.
In addition, Cedar Point’s world-record-breaking Steel Vengeance hyper-hybrid roller coaster won the “Best Roller Coaster” award. This comes just after its “Best New Ride of 2018” recognition, chosen by readers and voters in Amusement Today’s Golden Ticket Awards.
The historic Hotel Breakers, Cedar Point’s beachside resort, also captured the top spot in the “Best Amusement Park Hotel” category. The iconic property offers spectacular views of Lake Erie, the famous mile-long Cedar Point Beach and the world’s best amusement park destination.
Cedar Point, Steel Vengeance and Hotel Breakers were chosen to be included in the 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards by a panel of experts that includes a combination of editors from USA TODAY and travel industry contributors. Online voting for the awards lasted four weeks and readers were allowed to vote for their favorites in each category, once per day.
