Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 1989: Wicked Twister's permanent closure announced!

Recommended Posts

My first time at cedar point was an absolute blast, we only had 6 hours to spend once we arrived at 2 pm. I'll post a full run through of the attractions, a few things I need to say now. Mean streak was the worst ride I've ever experienced, I did ride in the very back seat so I was asking for it but good god. It's older brother blue streak did its sibling proud, again backseat ride jack hammered horribly to the point of 0% enjoyment. On the other hand magnum was unbelievably smooth and fun, Gemini was also awesome for what it is. We managed every adult coaster except wicked twister, tomorrow will be for reriding favorites and giving the Streaks a second chance in the front.

Sit in the front on mean streak, and use the grab bar to make sure you pull your back off of the seatback, same for blue streak, and you should be good! Can't wait to hear more about your trip!

Don't do it.

 

Spend that time enjoying Maverick, Dragster, Millennium, Rougarou, Raptor, GateKeeper, Gemini, and Wicked Twister... I seriously need to get back to Cedar Point for the 15th time, so many epic coasters.

I have to give blue streak a fair shake it's been talked up as a great ride. It has all the hall marks of being fun but the last car was just something else. Mean streak... Only because it looks so cool and it probably (hopefully) is not going to be there in its current form for much longer.

^ I didn't even think of it like that, it was such a subtle post I thought that it was just them doing what they do best and posting about their rides every now and again. But that would make sense with them saying #1 at the end (though I personally thought they were talking about the Sandusky Blue Streaks being number one). I guess if we see the Cedar Creek Mine Ride on their pages today then you may be right about them starting up the countdown again! If they do a coaster a day, including pipe scream since they already had it in the original timeline, they'd reach Rougarou on September 10th. Maybe with an announcement of an announcement on the 11th or 12th? Of course all speculation.

So has anyone been following CP's Instagram account? It looks like the coaster countdown is starting back up.

I didn't even think of it like that until you mentioned it. I just thought it was Cedar Point posting random coaster facts... Until I saw the #1. Then it all made sense.

Heading to the park for the first time ever Friday and Saturday. The point online crowd predictor calls for "moderate crowds." We are considering fastlane plus for Saturday but are going to wait to buy it. What is a good indicator that it is time to buy fastlane plus? Weather is supposed to be sunny and low 80s.

 

Thanks! I can't hardly focus with such excitement in my future.

 

Also, Fanny packs are allowed on all rides correct?

giving the Streaks a second chance in the front.

 

For Mean Streak that's a great plan. As others have said... front seat, lean forward and stay off the seat back. It's really smooth then (but still boring).

 

For Blue Streak, just stay off the wheels. The front isn't overly smooth either, ride in the middle row of any car and you'll like it. It's a really fun little coaster in the right seat.

announcement on the 11th

The park cancelled the announcement the first time to show respect to the man who died so announcing it on 9/11 wouldn't be the smartest thing to do.

 

I agree. I highly doubt we will see an announcement on 9/11.

Well well well, the streaks pulled a complete 180 today. I rode blue streak in the last car non wheel seat and haleluyah it was great fun. I waited for front row on mean streak and bam it instantly went from awful to pretty dam fun. It is almost devoid of airtime but there's nothing like flying over and through this massive contraption. That being said 1 row out of the whole selection not sucking still means it shouldn't continue in its current form, irregardless of that fact I'm glad I experienced a Dinn monster its an experience like no other!

I rode Mean Streak in the back left seat of the second to last car and it was an enjoyable ride, with the roughness about equal to Dorney Park's Thunderhawk.

On my trip to Cedar Point last week, I clocked around 4 rides on Mean Streak, because it doesn't really bother me all that much. Overall, the ride is mostly a dud, but there are a couple of airtime spots that, while weak, still catch me off guard every time like "Oh hello! This thing does have some air!" haha. I also satisfied one of my small coaster goals in finally riding Mean Streak at night, and it's actually pretty cool! Riding through that massive wood structure while it's beautifully lit up in the dark was almost hypnotic visually. Of course the ride itself still has a lot to be desired, but while being the worst coaster at Cedar Point, it's still nowhere NEAR the worst ride I've ever ridden (Son of Beast. Ugh, thank the lord that ride is gone).

I have to admit I like Mean Streak a lot. I can't explain why... the ride does absolutely nothing and I know that but just riding through the structure near the lake is pretty damn cool. Visually the ride and it's location are nothing short of stunning. Would I be said if they RMC it? Of course not. But until then I'll appreciate it for what it is.

Mean streak leaves its presence on the midway. Its looks nice from the midway, the train, and the lake. Its beautiful. The ride is self is a complete pile of crap though. Its not rough, its just so boring lol.

To whoever asked about the fannypacks, I'll repeat my reply from just a couple pages ago. YES they are allowed on everything. Report back when you've returned!

 

I slept on the pull out, which wasn't to bad. We stayed in the corkscrew wing as well. Stayed at the end of the hall with the staircase right there which was nice. The path was beautiful but could use a little more lighting. We had a great stay.

 

We might have been in the same room - ours was ground floor, first room on the left when walking in the side entrance with the stairwell on your right. Awesome location! We didn't try the pullout but should have thought of it since the mattress was so awful. I mean it was REALLY bad, so unbelievably bad I don't even know how to explain it haha. Fortunately for me, I was beyond exhausted every night so don't even remember going to bed and slept through till morning. I'm a terrible sleeper but being at CP all day wiped me out!

That's why I mentioned the 12th. I do believe they would repeat what they did last time they completed the timeline and wait a couple days before they randomly announce a date. It would look bad if they made an announcement on the 11th, I agree.

Why the 12th? Why should they do it the day Space Spiral was demolished?
