Sandusky, Ohio


One of the biggest and best amusement park destinations outside of Orlando is Sandusky, Ohio, home to the world-famous Cedar Point, plus waterparks and smaller resorts. Cedar Point's bread and butter is the roller coaster, and they're always opening bigger and faster rides. The most recent roller coaster, Maverick, opened in 2007 and is the park's 17th. Of the several outdoor and indoor waterparks in the area, Kalahari is especially noteworthy, proclaiming itself the country's biggest indoor park.
