Cedar Point and seeing LeBron James

Cedar Point was so fun! When Chris was in town we went to Cedar Point which is a huge amusement park in Ohio. It was only about 2.5 hours away so we woke up really early to go. Cedar Point has 17 roller coasters (more than any in the US), and has had the fastest and tallest ones until Japan/China made a taller one recently.

So the first ride we run to is the Top Thrill Dragster which is the tallest and fastest in the park. It goes from 0-120 mph in 4 seconds and the whole ride you see is over in 17 seconds.
We waited like 2 hours to ride it. We FINALLY made it to the front, it was so hot and sticky already and we got on the ride and.... technical difficulties and the thing wouldn't work. We sat around for a while and eventually left b/c they said it might take a while. So frustrating it took up the whole morning for nothing. I've ridden it before but I wanted Chris to finally.
Oh, and so we get off the ride we didn't ride yet, and I felt so sick. It was so dang hot and the noise was getting to me so I grabbed Chris bc I was going to pass out. Yay the day just began

I didn't go on some rides right after, but later on as our last ride 10 hours later we went on my favorite ride the Millennium Force. Dang, the time we got to the front it was dark and since this ride goes over 90 mph we got so many bugs in the face and hands it wasn't funny.

Some cool rides. They have a ton of water rides we went on too

Iron Dragon with the midst.

Going to some of the wooden rides. This one is called Mean Streak and we got on, put our arms in the air down the first hill and it shook you soooo bad. We had to hold our heads because it was that bad. Man that ride is old and so rough.

Here are some sideways pictures of when we saw Lebron. During my second round of sitting out, because again I felt ill, a girl starts screaming "LeBron is here". Chris and I went over there and there was the man himself, eating with a huge crowd around.

Some of the pics I took, I got about 10 away which was cool. No one was allowed to go by him and he had a lot of security guards
