I know that there are definitely similar posts to this further back in this topic but has anyone done a trip from the UK (preferably from one of the London airports) that could tell me a little about how they arranged flights and how long they stayed, also if they did any other parks etc
Thanks in advance
I did it as part of a larger trip where we came down via Canada (having done Canada's Wonderland), and drove to Ohio from Toronto (via a day at Niagara). Stayed 2 nights at Cedar Point and drove the car back to Cleveland to jump on a plane. So my first point would be, if you can drive then American roads are big, straight and easy. With Cedar Point not being that easy to access on public transport, picking up a car at some stage makes live a lot easier, and if you're looking to travel would also open up Kings Island as an option, which is at the south of Ohio (nearer Cincinnati).
If you're prepared to mix up your travel (car, train, plane, taxi etc) then it shouldn't be too complex to hit a few parks in the north of the USA. New York will be easy to reach from Ohio and from there you can get an hour bus trip to Six Flags Great Adventure as well as having Darien Lake not too far away, and from there you're an hours flight from Toronto where you can hit Canada's Wonderland. If you manage to do those 4/5 parks on a trip you're looking at some serious credits!
