Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Has Mean Streak opened yet?

My friend and I are going wednesday next week. Mean Streak is not my favorite ride or anything but it would be a shame to miss it, its pretty iconic.

 

It was closed all day on Sunday. Not sure about it's status for tomorrow.

Ok, so now for the million dollar question. During early entry does it make more sense to do Maverick or MF first? Should I try to hit both during that time or just get re rides on one?

Maverick first, start at the magnum entrance (closest to hotel too)

I've done this every time I've been here, its a very quiet nice entrance, and if you even jog to maverick you will get there FIRST. I also find maverick much more unreliable and usually has larger lines later, so I just marathon this ride until open

Hello all.

 

Apologies in advanced for this question being asked. I've never been to Cedar Point, nor the Cedar Point Discussion thread, so chances are somebody has asked this before.

 

What is the best way of getting to Cedar Point from out-of-state? Specifically, I'm from Arizona, and am trying to plan a trip for mid June. I really need specifics. Which airport should I fly into, should i rent a car to get to the park, where should we stay? One of the hotels at the park etc?

 

Any and all information would be awesome!

 

 

Thanks!

^Interesting to see how they do it, with those metal plates. God I'd love to experience that someday

 

The metal plates are actually rather heavy. It's really annoying to have to build the floors under the train to get the people off, then turn around and disassemble the floors once everyone is off the ride. Also, its such a slow going process that it's really not nearly as exciting as you would think it might be.

If I were you I would fly into Cleveland airport. It is only 57 miles from the park (closest airport to the park.) You would for sure want to rent a car. You can get some for pretty cheap on Hotwire. I'd stay at Breakers Express. It's less expensive than Hotel Breakers, yet it is still close enough to the park to be convenient.

^ So, fly to Cleveland Airport, rent a car, Drive to Hotel Breakers, stay and play.

 

For me it'll be five nights at HBs. Then, back to Cleveland with rented car.

 

That about right? (I'm skipping Breakers Express.)

 

(Sorry to jump in here, with this. I'm planning for next year, so I'm interested in this info, too)

5 nights is a lot of time (way too much for myself) for Cedar Point. Have you thought about going to Kings Island during your stay?

Agreed. I'd do a trip down to Kings Island for sure. It's not to far of a drive, and if you have a rental car with you, it would be worth the trip!!!

^ and ^^ Well for myself, the first night is when I arrive. The next day, Friday, will be the Coastermania Day.

 

Saturday through Tuesday (the day I'll depart), will be two more days at the park,

and a "Hotel Day" for just lounging around, the water park, etc.

 

At my age and health now, I just don't think I could take all of CP in just one day.

And I want to enjoy the whole park, too. Games along with the rides. Eating,

seeing any entertainment that they got.

 

Add to that, if there easier ways to get transport to the park hotel, and back to the airport,

without a car rental, that'd be great. But, it seems I can't, so I rent the car, accept

the cost, pay for it in advance, and then I don't think about it, when I'm in the car, LOL!

 

 

EDIT: I actually visited Kings Island well before Son of Beast ever existed! Beast was insane!

If I did go back, it'd only be a few credits. But ya never know.

Fly into Cleveland. Detroit is a good second choice (45min further) if it's a better flight or cheaper. You will need a car, no other option is economical or practical. Park hotels can be expensive, but have perks like early entry and the convienence of taking a break or a dump (let's be honest) in your own, walking distance room, can be priceless. Hotel breakers went under extensive renovation and is great. Lighthouse Point is good to for bigger parties. Sandcastle suites is a little dated and run down. Breakers express is a typical motel, which has perks but is off site. There are some suitable hotels in Sandusky, if you must. The Fast Lane Plus is around $100 on a weekend, budget for it if you must ride everything.

I understand your situation but to persuade you a little more: Diamondback is my favourite hyper, so much floating air in the back of the train, Banshee is a great addition, and front seat on Beast at night is awesome! The park is only 3.5h away. You got the car, American gas is cheap, go for it! No easier way than renting a car, you will drive through fields of grass to get to your destinations. Remember that most insurance companies cover car rentals, so you can decline coverage. If I rent with my Visa, I also receive damage coverage.

Fly into Cleveland, rent a car, head to Cedar Point.

 

I'm planning a road trip to Cedar Point in August with my college roommate from Washington DC. We are staying in a hotel near Sandusky, mainly to save money. It depends on your preferences. If you are going with a family, I suggest staying on site because of the amenities. If not, I'd stay off site. Hotel Breakers would be an extra 200 dollars per night.

 

For two nights offsite, the price range is around $265 - $333 per person. Theme park tickets, fast lane, and hotels are accounted into this. This is between two people. These are based on my calculations. If you are planning to go with more friends, it might be a little cheaper. Depends if you want to share beds haha.

 

Consider the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in your visit.

Talk with Guest Services at Cedar Point. You might get discounted tickets at Kings Island. They are sister parks.

if you are on a budget and want to include Fast Lane Plus, I suggest staying off site. a 15-30 minute drive into the park won't hurt. I would rather see the park skyline from the causeway every morning.

^It won't be as bad as it will get shortly thereafter! Most (if not all) Ohio schools will be out by then, so you'll have a lot of extra local kids compared to May. However, that is the last week of school for many Michigan schools, which is where the next largest contingent of attendees typically come from. So, you won't have the full-on crowds yet that week. That's pretty much the last chance for that, however, until the end of August, beginning of September! If you can go even earlier, like during the last week of May, I would recommend that even more!

I know it's only slightly after opening but holy hell that line is long. Probably around 2 hours.

I'm heading up there later in the day most likely... I wonder how the crowds will be throughout the park. I'm thinking it won't be *too* crowded but with a new ride I guess you never know. I keep forgetting that today is technically opening day to.

Been watching the cams a lot today. Dragster is launching 3 trains consistently and quickly! Getting really pumped since this week we booked our stay and my best friend is coming with her husband for the first time too! Trying out Hotel Breakers this time. Has anyone been inside the dog kennel on property? Are there pics online somewhere?

 

I'd like to see Valravn's holding brake actually engage and hold the train for a bit longer rather than slowly easing it over the edge. Do any of the CP employees here know anything about if they plan to add a pause to the hold in the future? Griffon really dangles you up there which I like.
