Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

p. 2030 - Top Thrill 2 announced!

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the lines will be like on may on the wednesday the 18th, thursday the 19th in a month from now. We are expecting very low lines considering its a weekday and no schools should be off and the temperature is not 100% optimal for the "family going to cedar point" type trips. Am I correct to expect extremely low lines? I am talking under 20-30 minutes max during midday for TTD, Maverick, MF, etc.

 

I'll begin with the caveat that nobody really "knows" what the lines will be like on any specific day in the future, as we are not prescient here (at least as far as I am aware of! )

 

However, yes, your assumption should be pretty accurate regarding shorter lines during that week. I've been going to CP most of my life, and virtually every year for the past 20, and the first week or two that CP is open during the week, in May, is definitely the best time to go! Much shorter lines, and generally, the weather isn't too bad either. I'm actually going the Tuesday of that week (17th), and probably again Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday of the following week. 20-30 minutes for MF, TTD, and possibly even Maverick, are certainly reasonable, and perhaps even shorter times at non-peak times of the day. That being said, if you run into a 45 minute line for Maverick, even on those days, don't be completely shocked...

 

Enjoy your trip to The Point, and if you have any other trip-related questions, feel free to ask!

I've been here 3 times before, during what I would call "peak times" and we still had fun. We ran a "front of the line pass cartel" where my friend was really lucky, we put a ton of money into those plinko games and we sold our excess tickets. We used all our remaining tickets during the last hour we had at the park and we rode maverick 6 times in a row when there was an hour and thirty minute line.

 

The first hour early opening is a godsend, we sprint to maverick and even during a VERY crowded day the lines are zero in the morning.

 

You can also have a lot of fun riding the "off" rides like mean streak and gemini over and over again finding the best seats.

 

Does anyone have experience with how physics days change the crowds? I'll be at the park Friday the 20th of May which is during physics week. I expect a spike in crowds from 11-5ish and then very light crowds? Any thoughts? Not too worried though because i'll be staying on property to get early entry... and it's a day at cedar point!

 

I haven't experienced the physics days, but I doubt it would have much effect on the crowds. The average daily admission for cedar point is like 20k+ people, so even if like 5k students come (many of which might not like thrill rides, and 5k is probably overstating it), you will probably only see a MAXIMUM of like 5 to 10 minutes on most of the major rides. I am booked to go there during that time period and I doubt I will have any problems with the crowdedness.

 

Also, you are correct in that the schools will only really be there from 11 to 5. 9-11 is when I usually get all the rides in (early entry) and then during the night crowds die down too, and schools would unlikely still be there.

 

 

I've had bad luck in the past going during the opening weeks. Not really with lines, but with the major attractions being down for some random reason. It could've been my bad luck, but since then I've associated it with "working out the kinks" after the rides have been shut down all winter.

 

As far as lines go, my best experiences have been middle of the week (Tues-Thurs). If I can get on Maverick in ~1 hour I'm happy. My advice for school days is to watch people. A lot of the time the groups will have on obvious matching shirts and will move in large packs which can swing line times. So just avoid the packs of people! There are a few line tracking apps/websites out there as well. I've yet to find one that seems reliable though (which is why I'm working on one of my own).

Omg!!! Someone alert the press. . .

 

Cedar Point is actually planting trees around Valravn. . . It's not going to be just a "grassy field" under the coaster.

There will be tons of bushes and trees. They'll be well trimmed I'm sure, but it won't be just barren.

Totally agree! You gotta have a well maintained break run so the coaster knows how to get into the station.

 

Know what I'm sayin'?

YESS! My wet dream! Trees around Valravn!!! So much lumber!!!

 

I never could have imagined they would replant any trees. The prospect of them growing out to the size of the ones they took out is unlikely; however, they'll make the area look much better.

Me thinks I need to add my brand of humor to the Vallyfair thread.

 

Oh, and Strippers!

Oh, please do! I pop in there from time to time because I'm planning to visit that park this summer, but every time I do I regret it. That thread needs strippers badly.

Can confirm.

 

I would visit Valleyfair, my home park, more often if there were additional strippers.

Any chance the strippers can make a stop at Dorney?
