What’s the deal with roller coasters?
No, seriously. Why do so many of us—being of sound mind and body—dish out our hard-earned money to wait in long lines for the privilege of screaming in terror as we are forcefully jolted around and catapulted through the air, out of our control?
Turns out, there are theories about that.
Psychologist Barrie Gunter believes there is a fundamental drive within us to test whether we can muster the courage to face up to danger and conquer our fears. Temple University psychology professor Frank Farley theorizes that the more stressful our lives, the more likely we are to seek the escape of thrill rides. And then there are some people who are just adrenaline junkies.
Whatever your motive, Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio is the perfect summer destination for thrill seekers searching for their next big adventure. It’s also one of those trips you’ll probably want to take with a large group of people. And when it comes to Cedar Point, there’s an art to group travel, so here’s an insider’s tip: Charter a bus to Cedar Point, and the best day of summer gets even better!
Why charter a bus to Cedar Point?
First off, it’s super convenient. Buses get their own lane at the admission gate, which allows passengers to load and unload at the front of the park. And, Cedar Point offers free parking for buses and a courtesy admission ticket for the driver. (Now, that’s our idea of bus-friendly!)
Second, have you seen the inside of a modern charter bus? Many of them are pretty impressive, and are equipped with all of the latest amenities.
When you charter a bus to Ohio, you give yourself extra time to relax — meaning you can spend all of your energy in the park!
