For the Memorial Day weekend, Trey took Leslie and me to Ohio. Our first stop was Sandusky's Cedar Point amusement park, still the most awesome place on Earth. Trey and Leslie had never been before, and I'm sure they enjoyed themselves as much as I did. For the record, I'm not getting too old for this.
As I did for my last visit to the park in 2010, here's a trip summary in postcard-sized chunks:
The new "ride" in 2012 is "Dinosaurs Alive!", the old riverboat retooled with dinosaur animatronics replacing animal animatronics.
Magnum heads up its lift hill into the clouds.
The Midway as seen from a shady picnic table behind the Dodgem pavilion.
New since last visit: Pink's on the Midway.
A last look at the Millennium Force before nightfall.
Passing by the remains of the Wildcat. The space is being cleared for an outdoor "Luminosity" laser show.
After we left Sandusky, we headed south to Columbus, Trey's real destination. More on that later.
