I ask this here because, well, obviously, its a Detroit forum and we go to Cedar Point more than the rest of the country.
My son, 11, is going to Cedar Point with his class. I haven't been myself in probably like 30 years, but I remember taking about $30, and that was a lot of money to spend back then. However, it still went pretty fast.
His teacher says they don't need more than $20, but I disagree - they have to buy food, at least twice for a day; and I'm sure they want at least ONE trinket of some sort. But him being 11, I don't want to put a lot of money in his hands either.
So what is a good amount for a kid that age to spend and be trusted with at Cedar Point? I'm leaning toward maybe $40 because I'm thinking food alone might be about $20. I remember the stuffed animals being $20 for just a small one.
