Amuse me.

I have to confess, I recently purchased an 'Everyday with Rachel Ray Magazine,' for work reference only. I am not a big Ray fan in general but this issue was filled many Cleveland references that I couldn't resist sharing.

The big story, America's Greatest Amusement Parks, Bigger! Faster! Taller! features the one and only Cedar Point. For a low (?) cost of $43 a ticket ($16 for children) you can visit this 138-year-old Ohio summertime institution. Get there early and plan to stay late (park closes at 10:00 pm) as there are so many roller coaters at this park, and you can't ride just once.

Some of my favorites (and Rachel's) are the Raptor (I love to let my legs hang free and flip over almost 6 times) and Millennium Force (what could be better than flying at 93 mph?). I haven't had the opportunity to ride Maverick yet but I can't wait to check it out. A day at Cedar Point isn't complete without a visit to Frontier Trail to watch the artisans blow glass and bend steel, true craftsman.

Picking up the pub at the checkout aisle at least got me re-excited to visit our "neighborhood" amusement park. Still not a big fan of the "fire pistol," but at least we see eye-to-eye one one thing...the Top Thrill Dragster is a killer way to kick off your day at the park. We should go sometime! :)
