Cedar Point Or Toledo Area Caches?

Recommended Posts

Have a couple of short excursions planned and we are looking for caches in the areas. First place of interest is Cedar Point. We will be extremely limited on time and were just curious if there were any caches actually located *in* the park. We found a virtual once at Busch Gardens in Florida.

 

Second area is Toledo. We'll have bit more time and would be interested in caches in unique/kid-friendly caches. Our kids can hike so they don't have to be park-n-grab types, just an area that the kids might find interesting.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Along US24 around Waterville just southwest of the city are a neat series of caches along the river and canal. Very pleasant but parking is for cars only, not much room for RV's (or my big truck).

Thanks for the suggestions. We're definitely going to do the zoo cache. We had already planned on going to the zoo and the cache looks like fun. As far as the other suggestion, how big of a truck is too big? We haven't decided for sure but are leaning towards taking our camper which will mean we'll have our full-size quad cab p/u. The cache look interesting but this truck is a bear to park.

A camper w/ trailer shouldn't be unmanageable, unless it's a humongous trailer. The parking areas along the river shold be adequate to get you close.

Thanks again for the replies. If we do take the camper (still in discussion) we won't be pulling it when we're looking for caches. The truck is pretty big (long wheel base) and can be a pain to park in small areas. Sounds like we'd be O.K. with the suggested caches w/o the camper.

 

For Team Tigger, you mean there's worse caches than Fuzzy caches?! :laughing: We don't get down to FW as much as we used to but have been talking about teaming back up with Team ABC and tackling Clue. We had such a good time with them on PPP that we thought we needed another go. They don't cache much and log even less but they enjoy the tough ones. I think we're going to team up for a Toledo puzzle cache since they'll be there with us.

 

Our Cedar Point trip is over and there were no caches in the park. No big deal, just didn't want to find out afterwards that there was! We had a great time, it's definitely the best amusement park in the midwest!!

Parking even a big camper at the Metroparks should be no problem.

Well, our Toledo trip is now history and all-in-all, we picked up 7 finds out of 10 hunts. Well, actually 12 hunts since two we tried twice, one resulting in a find on the second try, the other double-no finds. We were very impressed with the Metroparks that we visited. Also got to visit the zoo (did the cache there), went fossil digging at Fossil Park (cache there, but was a no find for us), took a short drive to see Cabela's (wow!) and ate at Tony Packos. It was a nice extended weekend trip and we'll probably be back since we now have a relative in the area. Thanks for all the suggestions, we will probably try the ones we didn't get to sometime in the future.
