What to Know Before You go to Castaway Bay + Win Passes!

As a Cedar Point Blogger, we received an overnight stay and waterpark admission to facilitate this conversation. Four (4) day passes were provided by Castaway Bay for sweepstakes. Opinions are my own.

What to Know Before You go to Castaway Bay + Win Passes!

It's 82 degrees all day, every day at Castaway Bay Water Park in Sandusky, Ohio


I'm shivering as I type and not out of excitement - it's c-o-l-d! I can't help but look longingly at the pictures from our overnight stay at Castaway Bay.

This is the third year that we've traded our winter coats for swimsuits and headed to Sandusky. I swear, each trip out there gets shorter. 

We were surprised that the rooms were updated with fun colors and cool photos from Cedar Point!

I feel like we are now indoor water park experts and ready to pass on our expertise. 


Fun at Castaway Bay


1. Check-in early, but not too early


Check-in is at 4 PM, but the park is open from 9 AM - 10 PM (unless otherwise noted). Wear your swim suits, check-in, and head to the waterpark! Leave the luggage in the car and come back for it when your room is ready. 

Cedar Point's Castaway Bay Tip: Check-in early!

I suggest checking in after 2 PM. The park is less crowded. I also suggest throwing your luggage in the car when you check-out and renting a locker for your change of clothing. You can stay until the park closes! 

2. Order room service!

Have a pizza party in your room and have it delivered. That seemed like such a luxury, but I found you pay the room service fee either way so you might as well indulge! 

3. Sign the kids up for the Birthday Club!

Included with your stay is a slew of fun activities for the kids on dry land! You can grab a daily itinerary at the front desk. While you are there, grab the treasure hunt! Kids who complete it can turn it in at the arcade for a rechargeable game card. Plus, there's a deal for refilling it. Save them for your next trip!

If you can drag your kids out of the pool, join Snoopy and the Gang for karaoke followed by a dance party.

5. Get Your Grub on at the Quaker Steak & Lube

You don't even have to leave the building! Quaker Steak & Lube is attached to the resort. We stopped in between craft fun and the arcade before heading home. 

6. Adults Can Get Wet, too! 

Go down a water slide. splash in the waves, and relax in the hot tub! And, keep your ID with you at all times. Two words - large cans of Twisted Tea!
