Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to visiting next weekend. Staying at Sandcastle Suites, anyone stay there before?

 

We're going next weekend too! It's a long weekend in Canada, so expect to see a lot of us. It looks like great weather is forecast, especially for Sunday. I have stayed at Sandcastle. It's nothing fancy, but does the job. See ya there!

I'm thinking of making a trip. Next time I would be able to go is Memorial day weekend. Will the lines be bad that weekend?

 

Yes. If a fastlane or Fastlane Plus is in your budget, get it. It's a holiday weekend. With a new coaster, the park will be packed.

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.

 

Not a CP employee, but I think a few ages back there was a discussion of a video where one of the managers they could adjust the length of the pause from 0 to 18(?) seconds. If that's true, it would make sense that they're keeping it lower for the time being to increase capacity.

Sorry for the double post but mini first day report.

 

Only got on a few rides today, gatekeeper (still my number one) Millennium Force and Rougarou. Valravn had an hour and 45 minute wait all day, but the area is beautiful. Planning on getting on Valravn, Raptor, TTD, Maverick, and Magnum tomorrow.

 

Full report and photos coming in a few days.

For how much we crap on Mean Streak, there are an awful lot of people asking about it. If it hasn't opened yet I'm guessing it's pretty much done for good, or as close as you can get to it. Although strange there would be no "farewell" before it gets an RMC treatment.

I think the Dollywood Thread influenced your opinions on delayed openings too much.

Out of the blue, I sent one of those "contact us" emails to CP to see if they could ship a Maverick sweatshirt for my ex-wife's birthday. Long story, but basically because we're so far away, we can't get there that often. The VP of merchandising contacted me the next day about arranging a 'buddy ship"...One of the many reasons CP rocks!

Went in for early entry, due to high winds, everything was closed.

 

Also saw some marking on the path over by the mini golf course. But they went up to hotel breakers, so probably nothing.

 

Challenge Golf can't possibly be long for this world. I have no inside sources but they gave up maintaining it a few years ago, I'm pretty sure one course has been closed for years.

 

If I were to bet on it I would think this might be it's last season, especially with the removal of the Go Karts. This all screams of a Carolina Harbor style water park expansion.

I went early to the park again yesterday and had a great visit. I arrived around 9:15, got a front row parking spot, and left around 3:15.

 

First we hit Valravn (25 minutes) for early entry. Then, even after the park opened, hit up Millennium Twice (5 Minutes). We walked over to Frontier Town and went on Antique Cars (0 Minutes), Mine Ride (10 Minutes--wasn't running at full capacity), Maverick (60 minutes--broke down for a lil bit). We took the train back to the Wildcat Midway and had our lunch at Famous Dave's. Finally we waited 1 cycle for Cedar Downs and about 10 minutes for Blue Streak.

 

A few takeaways:

 

-All of the employees were very friendly and talkative. Maybe because it's just day 1 but I was really impressed and they definitely added more fun to our day.

-Cedar Downs replaced its old audio with a new sound clip from an announcer of the Belmont Stakes.

-That big wall in front of Valravn with the 2 windows has a bunch of flowers in it now. Looks like that if the flowers grow out it may look really nice.

-Overall, a beautiful day with decent crowds.

It's a little hard to see. But there are flowers in those pots.

It was testing last weekend. The trains were sent to PTC for rehab during the offseason and now they're back on the track. Sorry haters... put away the pitchforks.

Great news! As much as I like the Boss, another coaster everyone loves to hate on, I'm looking forward to riding Mean Streak in a couple of weeks. In the front, leaning forward.

Nice! Last year I tried to do the same thing and was told it was impossible to do. Maybe my strong but fairly-written response to that situation had enough of a pull that they decided to reconsider their stance this year. If it falls through, let me know and I can get whatever you need in the beginning of July when I go.

^ Sorry if this info. has been posted before, but I was wondering if the

Breakers Express offers any kind of shuttle to get you to the park and back?

 

Or are you basically, still "on your own" for transportation?

 

Thanks in advance.

^ Cool, thanks. I'm hoping to visit CP in 2017 so all the information about transport, hotels, etc. is greatly appreciated.

 

 

COASTERMANIA, woo hoo!
