Ohio

THE BUCKEYE STATE

Ohio stretches from the Ohio River and Appalachian Mountains in the south to Lake Erie in the north. On the shores of the lake in Cleveland is the Cleveland Museum of Art and its renowned collection of European paintings and especially Asian art. Cleveland is also home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and close to expansive Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Ohio is commonly referred to as the Buckeye State due to the prevalence of Ohio Buckeye trees within the state’s borders. Cedar Point is a 364-acre amusement park located on a Lake Erie peninsula in Sandusky.Opened in 1870, it is the second-oldest operating amusement park in the United States behind Lake Compounce. Known as “America’s Roller Coast”, the park features a world-record 71 rides, including 16 roller coasters which are second-most in the world. New for the 2018 season is Steel Vengeance, a record-breaking roller coaster that will be the tallest of its kind. It will be the first wood-steel hybrid coaster in the world to feature a first drop taller at heights higher than 200 feet. Standing at 205 feet tall, riders will plummet at a 90-degree vertical angle at speeds up to 74 mph with upside-down maneuvers.
