Crowd Expectations

Cedar Point Crowds

Avoid the Crowds at Cedar Point with www.ThePointOL.com

The Point Online has used information from past visits to produce our 2010 crowd expectations, however, we do not guarantee that the information will be accurate.  The expectations are based solely on our opinions and personal experiences.  There are many different reasons that could make the park more or less crowded than expected. For more detailed information on planning your trip, please ask one of our experts on our Cedar Point Forums.

Days in which rain is forecasted, the park will be less crowded, especially when it may rain in the morning.  When it stops raining in the early afternoon, the park is less crowded that evening. On sunny and warm days, the park will be more crowded. Sunday’s are usually the least crowded day on weekends, except on weekends when Monday is a holiday. If possible, it is always best to spend two days at Cedar Point, as many people underestimate the size and time it will take to experience everything. We suggest staying at a nearby Sandusky hotel while visiting to maximize your trip. Start your hotel search to the right –>
