Do you typically spend more than a month at a water park? For most folks it's a day trip.

Never heard of the Dells have heard of Sandusky and the Amusement park (actually have been there)

Must say I wasn't totally impressed (by the park itself) felt like a six flags (maybe not even as nice) found in most large cities but think is pretty iconic for roller coasters (which it does have a lot of, not sure if the most or not)

More like six months but close enough.

I grew up in Ohio and knew about Sandusky/Cedar Point since I was a kid.

I had not heard of the Dells before I moved to Madison as an adult.

Never heard of Wisconsin Dells.
I have heard of Cedar Point in Sandusky, and I visited that park once.

is this place well known where you live? have you heard of it?
or is it probably more of a Midwestern attraction.

In Minnesota its a very popular place to bring the family for a weekend vacation, only a 3 hour drive.
I'd never heard of Wisconsin Dells until I met someone from the area about ten years ago. I'm from Pennsylvania.

I've been to multiple Six Flags Amusement Parks and your assessment of Cedar Point is irritating, to be honest. I'm not sure what your experience was but what exactly were you expecting? Is Six Flags in Philly some wonderland of amusement that I've never heard of? Is there a Six Flags in Philly? Normally you have very insightful and interesting posts but I don't get this one.

Sincerely,
A Fan

P.S. Wisconsin Dells is a FUN TIME! I like it more than Cedar Point and I guess I'm glad it's a regional thing because it's already swarming with the 20 million people that live within 3-4 hours of it. I've never seen something else like it in America thus far.
