  1. If there’s 15-20 mph winds at the park are there any rides that shut down?
  2. So right now a week out it’s showing 40% chance of thunderstorms the day we are supposed to go. Do all rides shut down during either thunderstorms or the threat of thunderstorms? I want to get FL+ but have held off. I guess there’s no refund if I buy it in advance and there’s bad weather correct...?
  3. Thanks for all the advice everybody. One other quick question. If I'm buying FL+ online in advance, and staying at the Express Hotel, can we get our wristbands there? (at the hotel?) or do we still need to get them inside the park?
  4. We are headed there in a little over 2 weeks on Thursday, June 16th. We are a family of 6 and this is sort of a once in a lifetime trip. We live out West, so we rarely head out this direction on vacation. We are only there one day, so we will likely purchase FL+ if the weather looks ok. I want to get in as many rides as we can while we're there, and while I can roll the dice hoping for a "lighter" crowd day, this will hopefully help us get multiple rides on SV, MF and Maverick. It also closes at 8pm, so with the shorter operating hours, I feel that FL+ could be more of a necessity. We are staying at Breakers Express, so we will also get Early Entry. Given the current list of Early Entry rides, we will likely head straight to MF, and stay in the back of the park and hit Magnum before getting in line for either SV or Maverick (which are both not on Early Entry list) for park opening (10am). Anyone been there recently to see if this is a decent strategy? I know that many with Early Entry may focus on the front of the park (Valravn and Gatekeeper), so my hope is that we can do those later in the day when the initial rush of front-of-the-park action dies down.
  5. Thanks for the advice everybody! I'm sure I'll inquire more as we get closer to June. One more question - I know some parks/chains have different rules when it comes to this... but for CP can you get in line just prior to posted closing and remain in line to ride post-closing? (as long as they haven't shut the line down?) For example - posted closing is 8pm, as long as SV is running, we could get in line at 7:55pm, and if it's posted as an hour wait and it doesn't break down we should be able to ride?
  6. Hey all, I live out West and it looks like we will be able to swing a Cedar Point visit in mid-June. I haven't been there since 2001, so things have obviously changed significantly. I am seeking out just a few recommendations for our visit as I would potentially like to book a package at Hotel Breakers. Here are the specifics: we may only be there one day (Thursday, June 16th), but there is an outside chance it could be 2 days given the fact that we are only there one day, and it is open from 10am - 8pm (Thurs), do you recommend one of the Fast Lane options? If the answer above is "yes", could we pull off regular Fast Lane and stand in longer standby lines for the Big 5 (or however many are in FL+) or are standby lines outrageously long for them (no matter the day/month, etc) If we stay at Hotel Breakers and get "early entry" privileges, what rides does that entail, and is it worth it, esp. if we are only there one day? Thanks in advance. I know the pricing for FL hasn't solidified, but I may try and get a rez at the Hotel soon. I'm assuming I could add that in later if necessary.
  7. Hey everybody - my spouse and daughter are headed to KBF this weekend (Saturday to be exact). They are down there for a soccer tournament and they have an off-day, so the team is headed there. I've been watching the queue times and they seem pretty crazy. Any tips I can give them? I'm going to suggest they get there at park opening. Are most coasters running then? (8am)? There are too many on the team going to add in the expense of Fast Lane, so we're looking at all our options to maximize their time. TIA!
  8. Wow... the castle looks stunning. I think it looks even better than the concept art.
  9. You can take the Free Farmington Trolly from the UTA Frontrunner Farmington Station Park and Ride Lot. Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk Thank you!
  10. Quick question for the Lagoon experts out there... We are headed there today, but I am arriving later than my family. My wife will use our season parking pass. Is there a good place I could park my car for free and walk into the park? I don't mind walking a bit, as my wife could drive me to my car at the end of the day. I thought of the Lagoon Trailhead and also Station Park. Any other ideas...?
  11. I guess Universal gave up battling the "Fantastic Worlds" rumored theme park name with Warner Bros. after the latest Fantastic Beasts movie didn't do as well as they expected. I couldn't tell from the concept art if there was a Potter-themed land or not, but one of the images seemed to indicate a potential Potter-esque street leading to a Ministry of Magic building...? Overall thoughts? On the plus side, any new well-developed and thought-out theme park is a win in my book. And this looks and feels like Universal is going all-out on a big sized themed experience as opposed to shoe-horning it into a small space near the other parks... but the distance from the rest of the resort just feels off. I know that some of the Disney parks/resorts are over 3 miles away from each other, but you are on Disney property - so it truly feels like you're already in a different environment from day-to-day life despite the distance (as has already been mentioned). Here you are going to be passing shopping centers, fast food outlets, local businesses, busy city streets... it just won't be the same. I'm sure they'll have some type of transport... but unless they put screens on the windows and try and pull off a Hogwart's Express type of experience, the attempt to create a cohesive "resort" may not work very well. In addition, if this is Universal's attempt to try and steal any Disney thunder over SW:GE, it feels like they whiffed it big time. It feels rushed, incomplete... and a bit desperate.
  12. SFMM does sell refill bottles that give you free refills for the rest of the day or free refills for the rest of the season. If you are going to be there for more than 1 day, definitely get the bottle that gives you free refills the rest of the season. (I believe they are the gold bottles this year.) I'm not sure about the cost, but i think the daily refill bottles are like $15-16 and the season refill bottles are like $20-21. There are a few places around the park that have the freestyle coke machines and I would highly recommend filling up when you see them. I know for sure the candy shop across from Fu11 Throttle has freestyle machines as does the gift shop right by Gold Rusher. This is great! Thanks!
  13. One other quick question - do they have soda mugs or with refill options for just the day of? (ie not a season passholder option) If so, what is the cost and is there a time limit between refills?
  14. Everything is basically the same as it was a few years ago. All rides have bins/shelves off to the side for your backpacks/drinks, except for X2. If you show up there with any loose items, they will make you buy a $1 fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo. No outside food or drinks are allowed. You can bring water bottles, but they’re like the TSA; they will make you empty them out before entering the park. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thanks! This was exactly the info I needed.
