Cedar Point and Lake Erie Railroad

Ride the rails of history.

All aboard! When this train departs the station, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got a seat. Why, you ask? Well, because the park is one of the few left in the world to operate authentic coal-fired steam locomotives. This railway excursion takes passengers on a two-mile trip over bridges and through the land of the “Wild West,” with a cast of silly characters reenacting life on the American frontier, including shootouts, classroom lessons, fire brigades and singing workers. When the conductor blows his whistle, just be ready for boarding and a great time.

Height Requirement: 46" tall to ride alone OR be accompanied by a Supervising Companion. Guests less than 46" tall must sit in the center of the bench, not on the outside edge.
