Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Checking into Breakers Express atm. I caught a glimpse of the park from the causeway fork. Hype for tomorrow!

 

I'm very excited for you! I always love that moment, when first timers see the park from the causeway for the first time, and their jaws just drop in astonishment! It reminds me of my early years going to the park, when that was such a magical sight for me still! Don't get me wrong, I still love going, and get excited with that view, but it's not the same anymore. The joy I can feel through some of the first-timers' posts here, is palpable, and I love it! Plus, I know you're in for a real treat, as it truly is an amazing park, which is easy for us regulars to take for granted! Have a great day!

^I said it still excites me when I see it, but it's nothing like it was back in the day when I didn't even go every year, and it was the highlight of my life. For example, I've already been four times just this year. As cool as it is, I'm not going to have the same internal excitement seeing it, that I did when I was young, or even years when I've only gone once or twice. I do get extra excited to see the view when I'm going with others who have never been, or haven't been in a while, as I live the experience of "first sight" vicariously through them!

I don't know, that view still gets me every time.

I'm with this guy.

 

I feel like neither of you really "get" precisely what feeling I'm talking about, that is different after visiting with any consistent frequency, but that's fine... The view is awesome, and builds excitement for the park every time, no doubt, and on that we can all agree!

^ I get it. Remember that first time well.

 

If I had dollar for every time I've heard a TPR member say this I'd be...

 

pretty broke actually.

It is funny you said all this when i rode Valraven for the first time i told my wife. I was like some of these people really need to meet a girl and enjoy that, and worry less about some parks light bulb needs replaced.

If this is saying what I think it's saying...

 

 

If it's not, well I guess I may just have a dirty mind!

Second best part about Cedar Point, other then the rides. That first view of the park, brings chills to me EVERY time and I've been 4 times. Its literally an ISLAND OF ROLLERCOASTERS! PURE ROLLERCOASTERS! Driving up to that with someone new is always special, seeing their reaction as well.

Went to Cedar Point yesterday, Tuesday. Had a very good day except I got stuck on valravn. I had to go down the huge 200 step spiral staircase. It was really crazy, but I got 2 front of the line passes. We also had fast passes, those things work magic. In total I got 5 rides on MF, 4 on Maverick, 2 on TTD, 2 on gatekeeper and some other rides mixed in there. I had a great day even though we got stuck on Valravn.

The euphoria I felt, definitely among the best 3 minutes of my life.

I don't know why you say "except". That would have been the highlight of my day.

 

We were stuck for about 30 mins and people were getting annoyed they were stuck. I did enjoy being up there and it was a really good view. The pros did out weigh the cons because I got 2 from of the line passes and a great view.

I'm going to be that guy, but I need some advise from you CP regulars. I'm probably going on July 7th (a Thursday) and it's the first time I've been in 5 or so years. I'm assuming crowds will be moderate since it's not a weekend but I still want to get on everything. If I get Fast Lane + does that mean I can literally walk up, go on the ride, exit, and go again? I know it's just a wristband, but do they give you wait times to come back or could I marathon a ride if I wanted?

Being a Thursday should help the lines, but it being a holiday week I expect the lines to be pretty long(assuming good weather)... Fast lane+ will let you skip MOST of the line, bit not all of it. I'd say at worst ~20 minute wait.. Atleast that is what I observed back in May (I didn't have Fast lane though). But IMO it is definitely worth the extra $ if you are only going for a day and want to get the most out of the park

Valravn was down since noonish but I think it's back up. Hopefully it's open tomorrow since I'll have fastlane+ and won't have to wait in the line for it.

 

I got to ride Maverick in the front row while it was raining and that was fun. Mean Streak in the front leaning forward (an hour later after a random dry patch) also got rained on. Millennium Force was #50 and my new favorite coaster. No idea where people get the "no airtime" thing from. Sure it's not rip-your-face-off ejector airtime but it's a big step above floater. Sensation of speed is off the charts and incredibly smooth. Raptor is also my new favorite invert, just the right amount of intensity and no headache or hip crush restraints *coughbansheecough*

The new B&M vest restraints are the Achilles heel of so many good rides. Wing coasters, Banshee, probably Valravn all have that annoying hip pain from the lap bar tightening throughout the ride. Vests are also annoyingly tight and surprisingly inflexible. It's sad because I do love the newer B&Ms and their layouts.
