Where did I say it was going to stop people from coming into the park? I just stated that my opinion was that I don't like them inside the theme park I just paid to get inside of.

I would pay for dinosaurs alive here just for the views and shots I could get of Millennium Force! :b

Registration is open for the Coaster Campout!

Image
It's the first-ever Coaster Campout at Cedar Point!

Find out what it's like to spend the night INSIDE the gates of the "Best Amusement Park in the World!"

You'll set up your tent inside the Antique Cars ride area in Frontiertown. Then, it's an evening of ERT, time with friends, food, MORE ERT in the morning and another great day at Cedar Point!

This event is free and is open to those with a valid roller coaster club membership. Park admission for both days is included with your official registration. You must show your valid coaster club card for admission.

Dinosaurs Alive is actually kind of cool. I wouldn't do at at Cedar Point since there are so many other things to do, but we did it at Dorney and it was pretty decent. I'd suggest doing it once.

I know more about donkeys than women!

Susan Glaser (Cleveland Plain Dealer and cleveland.com writer) interviewed the new Cedar Point general manager Jason McClure about rollers coasters, customer service, and the importance of preserving the park's past.

Don't read too much of the comments section; all they pretty much do is complain about Fast Lane and closing Geauga Lake!

Ugh.. why didn't I listen to you?

Honestly I think he gave the PC answer to every question so he essentially said nothing but it's interesting learning about his background and the fact that he has great taste in Intamin coasters. Fast Pay is a neat idea too.

It looks as if the Dino alive will be free with a platinum pass this year. At least at Cedar Point and Kings Island.

I really liked the ending of that article where it mentioned that they're already planning for the next coaster. Not that I'm going to rush it, they can take their time - Like me saying anything would change that ;) - But it definitely added some optimism to the article. :)
Total Coasters: 80 Total Steel: 68 Total Wood: 12
Last Coaster: Valravn @ Cedar Point
80TH COASTER: The Beast @ Kings Island
RIDE ON!
