Hints For Families

We know parents like to have fun, too. And we’ve got the greatest collection of thrill rides anywhere. To make it easy for Mom and Dad to ride too, we offer the Parent Swap program. Here’s how it works: one parent waits in line to a coaster or other height-restricted ride. After riding, they give their Parent Swap pass to the ride operator, and the other parent/guardian, who’s been taking care of the little ones, can walk up the exit to get right on the ride.

To participate in Parent Swap, parents need to obtain a slip to authorize them for the program at one of the following locations: Guest Services (at the main gate), Town Hall Museum or Resort Entrance Gate (near Magnum).

Cedar Point offers four children’s areas located throughout the park. Each of them is packed with the rides kids love: junior-sized bumper cars, Helicopters – even a Tilt-a-Whirl and a Roto Whip – along with two mini coasters that are just the right size for your future thrillseekers.

Planet Snoopy - The ultimate space for kids is Planet Snoopy. Our newest children’s area offers seven puppy-sized rides for your little ones. Fly into space with Snoopy, or see if you can beat the Kite Eating Tree. 

Kiddy Kingdom - When you see the colorful carrousel, you’ll know you’ve arrived at Kiddy Kingdom. Fun rules here, with rides like 4 x 4 Trucks, Helicopters and many more!

Camp Snoopy - In the shadow of Top Thrill Dragster you’ll find the place where fun is here to stay. Camp Snoopy boasts seven exciting rides, featuring Woodstock Express, the kid-sized coaster that lets you capture the moment with an on-ride photo.

Gemini Midway Area - A hop, skip and a jump across the Midway from Camp Snoopy is the Gemini Midway Area. There kids have their choice of three children and family rides that give them a taste of the big kids’ thrills. It is home to our new rides: Pipe Scream and Lake Erie Eagles.

If you remember Snoopy, or want to introduce him to your family’s next generation, you’re not alone. Snoopy is one of the most popular all-time characters, and you can see him in live shows featuring the PEANUTS™ cast of characters.

We offer two Family Care Centers in the park. One in Planet Snoopy near the front of the park and one near the entrance to Maverick in Frontier Town. Our Family Care Centers are a convenient and comfortable location for baby changing and nursing, with private infant feeding areas.They are also great places to take a break from the park, get a glass of water and rest. All Family Care Centers are also First Aid stations.

Children's meals are available in Kiddy Kingdom, Camp Snoopy, Planet Snoopy, along the main midway and in Frontier Town. Meals range from peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to a quarter-chicken. The park's full service restaurants also offer children's menus. Natural fruit juices and milk also are available throughout the park.

Cedar Point offers a guest service to quickly reunite separated children and parents with cell phones. Please sign up for KidTrack at Guest Services (at the Main Gate), the Resort Gate or Town Hall.
