What Ohio Park should I go to?

I'm kind of new here. I live in PA and Hershey is my home park. I am thinking about going to a park in either Ohio or Western PA. What would you recommend? -Kennywood -CP -PKI -Six Flags Ohio

I'm thinking mainly between Ceader Poing and PKI because of MF or SOB. But I'm not sure which one I'd rather go on. I'd like to do both, but I don't think I'll have the time. Lane

It all depends on how much time you have (and when)! Since Kennywood is on the way to all 3 of the other parks you mention, I would suggest you try to spend a day there. Then it's about 3 hours to SFO, about 2 hours from SFO to CP. From Kennywood to PKI is also about 5 hours. Kennywood can easily be a one day visit, especially if you're going during the week. PKI & CP are, IMO, "2 day parks" at least. SFO was a one-day when I was there last, but that was 5 years ago. Hope this is at least a little bit helpful. Al W

I would choose Cedar Point over the other parks just for the simple fact that it has been rated as the number 1 park and for having the number1 steel coaster. You cant beat that for what the price your paying to get in.

Sounds like a Kennywood/SFO combo would be most convenient to you. PKI is also a great park but would be a little longer drive. If you want to do CP then set aside a lot of time. It is so big and the lines are always very long that you cannot do the entire park even in two days.

Good question. Although I haven't been to PKI before, I would still say Cedarpoint, because it's my #1 park, and almost all my friends I've talked to that've been to both parks prefer Cedarpoint by far. The only people on here I've seen prefering PKI are either hardcore SFMM people or hardcore PKI locals. Mostly everyone else's said CP.
