There's only two reasons to go to Ohio, one of which is taking a dump on the 50 yard line in Columbus and two is Cedar Point.  Check out the new winged coaster they're putting in, the 170 foot high GateKeeper. 

Seriously, if you've never been to Cedar Point, you're missing out.  It's one of the best amusement parks in the entire world and it's only a little over 2 hours away from Flint.  The GateKeeper looks pretty bad ass and is expected to open in 2013.
