Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I just left the park, and I will say that while the initial wait time appeared to be huge (having already ridden it, there was no way I was going to wait in it), by the time we left around 3:00, it was ihnto the queues designed for it, meaning less than an hour and a half wait. So it definitely got better as the day went on. Also, wait times for the rest of the coasters and rides were very reasonable, as a result of the glut of people waiting for Valravn. Less than 15 on MF to open the day (though I'm sure that got worse), and around an hour for Maverick and TTD. Raptor said it was that long as well, GateKeeper wasn't more than 15 when we got on, and when Magnum finally opened after a long delay, it didn't sound like it was very long. maXair was the only bigger ride that never opened while I was there. I walked onto SkyHawk, Pipe Scream, and essentially Blue Steak, while Rougarou would have been only around 15 minutes if I didn't have to wait for a train to be switched right before I got on. All in all, a really pleasant day at the park, and not too crowded, actually!

 

I tried a few of the new Valravn items, such as the beer (which I wasn't crazy about, but I don't like IPA's), and the Ice Cream (which was fabulous!) The new area around Valravn is fantastic, and is an even better addition to the park than the great coaster itself! So much life around there, mixed with great walking views, and a fabulous ambiance! It's going to be a banner year for CP, and I'm looking forward to my numerous future visits!

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

So basically there were about as many rides open as there would be in peak season with 15 mph winds.

"Rattle status" is my go to phrase for the remainder of '16

If you want to be extra edgy about it you can just abbreviate it as "Rat Stat". That way you can ask about the ever important B&M rattle and look like a badass edgelord at the same time.

Oh, and the ride I noticed "rattling" the most today? Not a B&M... An Intamin, Millennium Force, was actually rattling pretty good I noticed! More than I recall previously...

^ I agree.

 

And the Valravn beer sounds (and looks) great!

 

Being a huge fan of IPA's, I am sure I will like it...but for those born and bred on Bud Light - they probably won't.

Lots of cool throwback shirts this year.

 

Which gift shop is this? I MUST have the Schwabinchen one! Thanks!

 

I was thinking the same thing...I love the throwback theme park shirts!

^ Wow...surprised to hear that the Valravn beer has sold out at the park!

 

Now where is the QS & Lube...it used to be at Castaway Bay, but there were rumors of one going in or near the park? Can you confirm?

 

And before the Valravn beer sold out, where could you buy it? Just next to the coaster or any of the fine establishments in the park where adult beverages are sold?

The last two days here have probably been the best time I've ever had in a theme park, debbie downers about crowds/weather be damned. I took a ton of pictures, hoping to put together a trip report after we leave. About to go back to finish out the trip after a siesta in the hotel room.

The beer is sold out all around the park but they have it on draft st the lube. It's a good iPa. Ride is fun I will give more thoughts on my trip tomorrow

"Oh crap we forgot to put the upstop wheels on the train"

 

Lol, was thinking the same thing! The perspective of the webcam makes it look like something catastrophic happened

There is some guy in the lower platform, maybe a chain problem?

Yeah, I need to know this for next year's visit.

There's a block brake up there in addition to the lift block. I agree it looks really weird.

 

Also it looks like Raptor, Sky Ride and Gatekeeper are closed for wind and Valravn is running so it seems to be semi wind resistant.
