Castaway Bay Waterpark & Resort | Sandusky, Ohio - Fun Family Destination (HOT Giveaway!!!) #BloggingAtCP

I received a complimentary overnight stay, waterpark passes and breakfast buffet at Castaway Bay as a Cedar Point Blogger. All opinions expressed are those of Coupon Savvy Sarah.

My family and I recently had the pleasure to travel from Michigan to Ohio to stay at the Castaway Bay Indoor Waterpark and Resort. Boasting a balmy 82 degrees inside Cedar Point's year-round indoor waterpark resort - that is enough to entice this Michigan family to travel almost three hours from the freezing temperatures and mounds of snow!

Now before I show you all the fun we had at Castaway Bay, 
I have two things to share with you:

I am excited to share with you a money-saving discount code for Castaway Bay! The NEW "Room, Waterpark and Breakfast Buffet Package" starting at $149 (now through May 2, 2015). Use the promo code BLOG for this sweet deal! Reservations can be made online at or by calling 419.627.2106.

Castaway Bay provided us with FOUR (4) Day Pass Vouchers to GIVEAWAY to one lucky Coupon Savvy Sarah reader! See the bottom of this post to enter!

Also, be sure to check out my post on the newly renovated Hotel Breakers which reopens May 2015 in addition to Cedar Point's newest Floor-less coaster - The Rougarou!

We had an amazing time staying at Castaway Bay at the beginning of this month! Given the nautical theme of the resort, Castaway Bay really gives great attention to detail in the decor throughout the entire waterpark and resort.

Starfish Room w/Double Beds & Balcony

The rooms and suites in Castaway Bay's resort feature a private deck or balcony (in most), flat screen television, free wireless internet, microwave, mini-refrigerator and coffee maker. Also, many rooms have access to adjoining rooms - perfect for extended families or large groups. We stayed in the Starfish Room with a balcony view of the bay (even frozen it was a really pretty view).

We arrived before the 4pm check-in time and they already had our room available - it was really convenient to be able to drop all our bags off in the rooms, grab a bite to eat at Ebb & Eddy's. If you don't see what you want on the menu above - make sure to ask for their room service menu (bear in mind, you will be charged a room service fee even if you dine in the cafe area for ordering off this menu). If you happen to arrive before your room is ready, the helpful staff will store your belongings and you can head straight to the waterpark! You will also get a copy of the daily "Island Times" newsletter which gives you information on all the day's events at Castaway Bay including kid's activities, when the Peanuts Gang is around for fun photo opps and more!

The waterpark was a lot of fun and we spent a majority of our time there. Out of the different waterparks we have visited, I have to stay - I was happy that Castaway Bay's waterpark didn't smell over-chlorinated. I have left other parks with severe migraines due to the heavy chlorine smell and this was not the case here which made my time in the waterpark even more enjoyable.

At the waterpark:
  • Towels and life jackets are provided; little ones under a certain height are required to wear them in the wave pool area.
  • Lifeguards are on duty while the waterpark is open.
  • Big Daddy's Snack Shack is open at the waterpark for snacks, food, beverages and grown up drinks to consume while at the waterpark.
  • My suggestions: Don't forget to bring a coverup and flip-flops/swim shoes.
  • There are a ton of different areas to explore including the wave pool, hot tub, outdoor pool, tube slides, Lookout Langoon Family Funhouse (including the tipping bucket that drenches guests every two minutes), a toddler tide pool area and more!
Breakfast Buffet at Mango Mike's

At the resort:
  • Check out Crabbie's Quarterdesk Arcade for some fun family game activities!
  • While checking in, ask about signing up for their children's birthday club (Free waterpark day pass for kids 12 and under to use for his/her birthday). You can also sign up for the birthday club online.
  • Places to eat: Mango Mike's family-friendly buffet, Ebb & Eddy's Sweets & Eats and adjacent Woody's Chartroom, Bay Harbor and Quaker Steak & Lube (coming Summer 2015).
  • Check out the fun kid-friendly activities at Club Castaway in the lobby area throughout the day, such as movie night, karaoke, face painting, crafts and more!

Castaway Bay is definitely a fun escape for the entire family - no matter the age! Everyone will have fun and find fun activities to do! I can't wait to head back with my family (just hopefully without the snowstorm this time)!

  1. Interesting re: the room service menu. We (Amber's family and I) ate twice at Mango Mike's, both times were good. We ended up grabbing dinner on the road on Sat night.

    1. Liz - we ate lunch at Ebbs and found out about the room service charge....basically if they have to turn the ovens/hot food equipment on - they have to charge the fee - totally get it. We ended up eating offsite for dinner because we heard about this awesome pizza place about a mile away - it was amazing!!
