CEDAR POINT | S A N D U S K Y Screams of excitement have been ringing out since 1870 at Cedar Point, the second-oldest operating amusement park in the country. The 365-acre park features 71 rides, with 17 of them roller coasters. The most-visited seasonal amusement park in the United States, Cedar Point attracted an estimated 3.5 million visitors in 2015. KINGS ISL AND | M A S O N Most anything can be a teachable moment, a philosophy that Kings Island supports through its Education Days for youth groups. The program turns Kings Island into an outdoor classroom that gives students an opportunity to understand the basics of science, technology and engineering in a rip- roaring environment. Because of what they learn, students then understand and appreciate the science behind the rides they later enjoy at the park. GREAT WOLF LODGES | M A S O N A N D S A N D U S K Y Imagine stumbling out of bed and heading down the hall to a water park. The concept works, as dozens of youth groups head each year to Great Wolf Lodges in Mason and Sandusky. Putting a water park and a hotel under one roof makes for an attractive and easy outing for groups that want to kick back and have fun together.
