^If I could like that post I definitely would. I agree 100% with what Robb said on the "Seat Belt Issue".

I've referenced some pics from another fan-site of CP, and have came up with a "basic" map of all the new markings.

btw, there were ALLOT more markings around space spiral/disaster eateries(particularly around the tables).
"break open the bubbly, its time to tear down the warehouse!"

*the marking in-front of the games area(upper right) isn't exact, IDK which side of the games area it was on*

You should see the amount of markings that are in the backstage area ;)

I'm interested in buying it next time I go, but I want to go knowing that'll it cost $xxx and not be surprised when it turns out to cost twice as much.



You could really just go to the Cedar Point website and go to the FL tab, but here is the price break down.

Number of Guests Price Per Person (Sunday - Friday)2
1 $50
2 $45
3 $40
4 $35
5 or More $30

I have my FL passes ready to go for this Friday. Thursday we don't have FL but if the park is even remotely crowded for some reason we will buy them that day as well.

There may or may not be a coaster headed to that area next year. Take that for what it's worth. ;)

Steve, you have to stop teasing us. ;)

What is that free-standing building behind the games complex?

I think the complaining about fastlane is completely overblown.

I wasn't there on opening day, but I would imagine the waits were simply due to the opening day crowds. I can remember waiting 45 minutes for Blue Streak one year when I visited opening day. Yesterday, the lines were really short all day, and only once did I spot someone using fastlane, while walking through the Magnum's queue. I don't think any ride was more than a 30 minute wait yesterday. Near the end of the day, Maverick was a near walk on. :)

From what little I've seen so far, I think this is a system that CP is gonna make work really well, both for those interested in getting it, as well as it not having a huge impact on those who won't.
