Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

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?

 

First off, at that point in the year the park will be packed no matter the day you go so it's good that you're getting fastlane plus. As far as fastlane yes. You can ride whenever you want. Sometimes the fastlane line can be around 15-30 minutes for certain rides like millie, Maverick, TTD, and probably Valravn. They don't give any certain time to come back. You get in line whenever you want. Hope this helped!

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.

 

I would love to walk the catwalk of a coaster. My wish.

I was at BGW very often back in the day and I don't recall daily shutdowns, especially not stops on the mid course. But maybe it's a dive machine thing, or a trend with more recent B&Ms. (Fury always getting stopped on the lift, etc.) The other B&Ms at BGW certainly didn't have daily problems over a month after opening. Weekly, sure, but not anything out of the ordinary. There could also just be a hypersensitivity of CP folks reporting downtime...

Went to Cedar Point for the first time today. We got into the park around one and rode Windseeker, Gatekeeper, Raptor, Blue Streak, MaxAir, and Wicked Twister before exiting the park around three to check into Hotel Breakers.

 

We went back into the park around 4:15 and rode Magnum-XL 200, Witches' Wheel, Gemini, Cedar Creek Mine Ride, Skyhawk, Snake River Falls, Mean Streak, and Thunder Canyon. We exited again at 6:40 to eat at TGI Fridays in the hotel.

 

We re-entered again at 8:20 and rode Top Thrill Dragster and Millenium Force. We went to the Luminosity show at 9:30 and then got on a front-row rode of Rougarou at 10:05 (even though closing time was 10).

 

I would say that we had a pretty successful day at the park, good thing we didn't buy FastLane passes! Hopefully tomorrow we will be able to get on Valravn, Maverick, Corkscrew, and Iron Dragon.

Correct. There are no Q-Bots. You show your wristband and they put you in the FL+ line which usually merges either at the station or just before it. When Maverick is running we ride it then go right back around to the FL+ entrance to ride it again. And again. And again...

 

 

^MTP you had a super successful day!

^^ looking at the webcams the park looked kinda dead today... I wonder if the threat of rain (thay never really came... at least in Cleveland) made some people think twice about going today.

Could be. The forecast is not good for tomorrow either so I am thinking of heading down to KI instead and save my first CP trip for next week.

You never really know with the forecast up here. It could say that tomorrow will be crap but then it'll end up being beautiful like today or it could be the opposite.

A day at KI isn't a bad alternative either.
