  1. After spending two days at CP (Sunday and Monday of this week... with Monday being HORRID with crowds and rides not operating, and staffing issues), we drove to Mason for a Tuesday visit to K.I. our first ever. Having PTSD from previous days, seeing amazing forecast, and seeing early car lines trying to get in before opening... we panicked and purchased FL+. BEST DECISION EVER. We've never been "pay extra to skip the line people" but outside of drop tower, we NEVER waited more than 10 minutes. Got 24 coaster rides in. Never checked online for times. Grabbed our funpix after
  2. To conclude (in brief), as this really belongs in a K.I. post... but as we had early entry to K.I. and they didn't... and the crap show that was Monday at CP...I took a picture of the parking lines and sent to to them (they hadn't left the hotel yet)... and they responded with "we should buy FL+". DONE! So... first trip to K.I. was freaking amazing. 26 total rides, 24 coasters, leisure clockwise approach, good beer and food, MAGIC. Changed every future visit to a park. Also, CP has such a maintenence issue with their coasters (and/or wind), and K.I.'s were SUPER reliable
  3. I SO WISH they would... but they won't. I'll encourage, but this is the price to pay to have companionship. Worth it for my kiddo (though I've trained her well to hate and strategize around lines). I forgot to mention...I noticed one thing in line for SV yesterday. It's almost like they made a policy change WHILE we were in line. At first, the line was CREEPING, and I was counting anywhere from three to ten empty seats on the trains (assuming it was the lockers). Then, something happened, and ALL the trains were full. On Sunday, when it was our turn to hit the lockers, if people we
  4. Concluding (and having high hopes that I use enough detail so as not to incur the biting wit of prozac... but knowing I'll fail and he'll pounce... enjoy!): Sunday 13th vs Monday 14th was a tale of wildly different experiences. Sunday was very solid. Wish other family was comfortable doing FL+... but wasn't... and we didn't want to separate (daughter prefers riding with kids to old geezer parents... and I don't blame her). Managed just fine, but holy crap, yeah... just buy the dang FL+. Ops seemed off at first, but yeah, they're training a boatload of newbies, so patience was key. Withou
  5. I think that if you use FL+, you should experience lower waits on SV... depending on time of day. The locker situation... experienced first time yesterday... so I can't compare it to weeks ago, but it looked like those with FL+only waited around 10 minutes. The lockers are the choke point, and after those, it's basically a station wait. It makes the standby line look like shit, but it's not terrible. Especially if you're patient and hit it after noon. We went at 1:30. It was posted at 90, and we waited about 45. FL+ which we didn't get because the other family with us balked, was seemingly ten
  6. Update: I am dumb. They gradually increase the load as they start it for the day. Please ignore the ramblings of this old man.
  7. Not sure the issue... but they're only loading the first three rows of TTD. They Also had three cars of Magnum roped off. Ops have been otherwise smooth and enthusiastic. Multi trains everywhere, but staffing shortages are certainly still effecting morning roll out.
  8. Super hoping to hit Melt. Also, outside the park... if you're into excellent craft beer, we tried CLAG tonight. We were super impressed. The brewer knows how to make excellent hazy N.E. ipa's. Didn't have the food. May go back tomorrow night.

  10. Oooooohhhhh.... that's a good idea. I was worried about raptor being so close to the front. I WAS all about a maverick start. Then MF. SV looks like a noon hit. Big open crowd is thinned then. Heard about gatekeeper chain. That's a giant bummer. It eats so many crowds and my daughter was super excited for it. THANKS!
  11. Just arrived at Cedar Point Express. Checking crowd levels for today... yikes. Not going on until tomorrow and Monday. Still going to be busy, but hey... haven't ridden anything here yet, so anything and everything will be a win (and holy crap... two year coaster drought...I NEEDS IT!). Quick question for the experts. Leaving from Express tomorrow morning with early entry. What time should we be starting the car to head over to the park to ensure actual entry at nine? Haven't decided on fast lane plus. We want it, but couple joining us has unsure feet. Fingers crossed.
  12. I'm afraid we're potentially looking at months, not week's. Our trip through Ohio in June is looking very very very dicey. The next thing will be pass holders looking for refunds. In six flags current business state, this could really force some parks to close forever. Basically...shit.
  13. Teacher Kim, I've enjoyed your posts in the STLSF forum for forever. I may @ you my plan once finalized given your knowledge from this area to that region. I was considering a holiday world stop as well, and this may seal that!
  14. Huge, giant, enormous thank you's to everyone! Great info and advice. Love this community (even though I'm just a lurker, I do feel a part of it). I'll be getting to work, and hopefully won't be too lazy to contribute down the road. Also, that Econo map is hilarious. Well done. Looking forward to building our coaster count soon!
  15. Howdy knowledgeable Cedar Fair individuals! First, I'm a teacher planning our family's first visit to Cedar Point (2 park days), and kings island (1park day). We purchased platinum passes for the trip, and I'm officially at the "time to plan and make reservations" stage. We're out of st. Louis, and I'm hoping to get there as early in the summer as possible (depending on snow days, first week of June??). I don't want to be annoying, so if there's already a post that's easily accessible, I'll look there... but I know that I trust y'all, and there's literally thousands of posts so I d
