Cedar Point was named "best amusement park" by USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice Awards.

The park's "Steel Vengeance" hyper-hybrid roller coaster received the best roller coaster award. Cedar Point's beachside resort off Lake Erie, Hotel Breakers, also won best amusement park hotel.

A panel made up of travel industry contributors and editors from USA Today selected Cedar Point, Hotel Breakers and the "Steel Vengeance" . Readers could vote online once per day in each category online for four weeks.

These new awards come after the amusement park won a "Best New Ride of 2018" award from Amusement Today's Golden Ticket Awards. Cedar Point was also inducted into Trip Advisor's "Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame" this year for receiving a Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years. Trip Advisor gives the certificates to businesses throughout the world for delivering great service.

“We’ve been a summertime tradition for almost 150 years, and we won’t ever rest on our promise to deliver an exceptional experience for our guests,” Jason McClure, vice presidnet and general manager of Cedar Point, said.
