Sandusky, Ohio has been informally dubbed “Roller Coaster Capital of the World.” This brings in a lot of visitors.
Unfortunately, the people coming for the adrenaline rush and good times are going to have to wait a little bit longer in line before they can get into the parks.
Cedar Point amusement park, which sit on Lake Erie, added another level of security, metal detectors.
While this may seem like an extreme, in this day and age, people want the added security of feeling safe from deranged gun owners, particularly while going out with their children.
The park in Cedar Point is opening a newly expanded water park, known as Cedar Point Shores that can be found 65 miles west of Cleveland.
This water park will have the second most roller coasters in the world, coming in second after Six Flags Magic Mountain, which is in Clarita, California.
