An Even BETTER Cedar Point Giveaway!

Updated at bottom with winner's information!

Did you miss my first Cedar Point giveaway? Did you enter and not win? I'm sorry about that. Because the park is definitely worth the effort it takes to enter giveaways for the chance at being pulled.

How about we try and make one of you feel better about not winning last time? How about an even BETTER giveaway?

Cedar Point would like to offer one reader 2 one-day passes for entry into Cedar Point. AND they are adding two FAST PASSES to that offer, as well!

For the uninformed, Fast Passes are the magical* passes that a person can purchase in addition to their regular ticket so that they may enter near the beginning of the line for most of the rides in Cedar Point. Want to ride Millennium Force AND Maverick AND Top Thrill Dragster AND Raptor, all in one day? Without the Fast Pass, it may not be possible. Those lines are generally 1-2 hours, depending on the day of your attendance. But WITH the Fast Pass, you can not only ride them all, but ride them as many times as you want!

The thought of that just made my heart go pitter-pat...


Please be sure to include your valid email address. If I cannot get a hold of you, I will have to choose another winner. 

Please be sure to enter a separate comment for each entry. I will be using to randomly (heh) select the winner based upon comment #. If you only comment once, you will only have one chance to be picked. If there is a duplicate comment, it will count in the line up, but cannot win. The next comment with a valid entry will be the winner.

Ways to enter:

1. Comment and tell me who you'd take on this awesome experience.

2. Tweet about this giveaway linking back to @justanothermom and @cedarpoint . Please use a separate comment for each tweet. Limit of 5 tweets, please!

3. Share this giveaway on Facebook or any other social media site being sure to link back in the comments.

4. Follow me on Twitter @justanothermom

5. Subscribe to my blog via Google Friend.

Best of luck to you all! Contest closes at 12:00 midnight CST on Thursday, July 5.

*They're not really magical. Though it will feel like they are; trust me!

Disclaimer: I was provided with passes to Cedar Point and Soak City in return for writing a review and giveaway. But ALL opinions are, as always, my own!

Cedar Point Giveaway!!

Some of you may know that my family is a bunch of adrenaline junkies. We ADORE amusement parks and consider ourselves roller coaster experts. One of our favorite spots to go is now Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.

 If you've never been to Cedar Point, you simply Must. Go. First of all, the park is so CLEAN. This is a huge accomplishment for an amusement park...
 But most importantly, the rides are phenomenal. Even the smaller coasters which are geared for the more vertically challenged are fast-paced and exciting.
 This little ride surprised the heck out of me. Don't walk past the smaller coasters, folks; they will definitely give you a thrill for a much shorter waiting time.
We haven't told the younger kids (my teenager overheard us planning) but we're going to Cedar Point in a few weeks! EVEN BETTER is the fact that Corinne is now over 48 inches and Evan is 55 inches which allows him access to Every. Coaster. Even the Top Thrill Dragster!!

If you are planning a trip, I suggest checking out Cedar Point's event calendar for special ticket prices and packages.There are ALWAYS ways to save money on purchasing tickets to Cedar Point!

OR, Another option would be to enter this giveaway for a Family Four Pack of tickets (to be used in the 2012 season. Some restrictions may apply)!!

To Enter to win a packet of 4 tickets to Cedar Point (be sure to leave a SEPARATE comment for each item you do):

~ Tell me, have you ever been to Cedar Point? What was your favorite ride? If you've never been,  what would you like to try first?
~ Follow my blog on Google Friend
~ Follow me on Twitter @justanothermom
~ Tweet about this giveaway linking back to this page and to @justanothermom
