Planning a Trip to Cedar Point & the New Hotel Breakers

Cedar Point, Hotel Breakers, Rougarou, deals, family, family fun, entertainment, amusement park,
Spring is finally here! That means Cedar Point will be opening soon. My co-blogger and I are planning a trip with our 12-year-old daughters. I'm so excited because 2015 brings so many cool changes to Cedar Point. First of all Cedar Point has a new coaster called the Rougarou™. It replaces the Mantis. Check out the video below. Your feet dangle really close to the track on this new thrill coaster because it's floorless. I know that I will be riding this ride! It looks like so much fun.
Hotel Breakers has been updated. I repeat Hotel Breakers has been updated! My family and I were there in September 2014. We loved it. It was already pretty amazing. It's so nice being able to take a break during the day if your kids get tired or whiny. The hotel is right off the park entrance and exit. The best part is you get to enter Cedar Point one hour before everyone else does. Only certain rides are open, but I will let you in on a secret, they're usually the most popular rides. We rode the GateKeeper numerous times before the park even opened. How awesome is that?
Here is some really cool information about the updated Hotel Breakers.

2015 will mark the debut of the newly-renovated Hotel Breakers. Located along the mile-long Cedar Point Beach, Hotel Breakers will complete its two-year transformation into the ultimate resort destination. Along with a new exterior, the modernized hotel will have a new entrance portal, classic interior finishes, newly furnished and remodeled rooms with LCD TV’s, new furniture, bedding and d├ęcor, and many other amenities and offerings.

Additional enhancements include a new Starbucks and the Surf Lounge bar inside the famous rotunda, widened exterior green space with panoramic views of Lake Erie and an outdoor water play area with zero depth entry and splash features.
“We want to provide a well-rounded and complete vacation experience for our guests, and the enhancements at the Hotel Breakers will help them have just that,” said Jason McClure. “It will have a fun and fresh feel, is steps away from the park and it’s a great place to start new family traditions.”

Other amenities include two pools and Jacuzzis, access to the Cedar Point Beach and Boardwalk, a gift shop, arcade, exercise room, three restaurants, Early Entry (access to some of the biggest rides and coasters before the park opens to the general public), discounted Cedar Point admission tickets, complimentary Wi-Fi, and the comfort and convenience of staying right next to the rides and roller coasters of Cedar Point.


The charming waterfront hotel first opened its doors in 1905 as the “largest and greatest hotel on the Great Lakes.” Known for its breathtaking views and cool summer breezes, Hotel Breakers has been an important part of any complete Cedar Point experience. Notable guests over the years have included celebrities such as sharpshooter Annie Oakley, comedians Abbott and Costello, composer John Philip Sousa and six U.S. presidents, including Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower.


Located on a sandy peninsula along the shore of Lake Erie, Cedar Point has been named as one of the best amusement parks in the world by USA Today, TripAdvisor, The Travel Channel and more. Cedar Point’s amazing lineup of roller coasters has received top billing by CBS News, Time magazine, the Los Angeles Times and many more.
