Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

On our first trip to CP, I was ignorant of the insect issue. Rode Blue Steak at dark. Had my mouth wide open and flew into a mob of them under a light near the track.

 

One was lodged somewhere in my throat and I dry heaved on it for about four minutes.

 

Fool my once...

As entering the park today around 10 AM with about a million other cars entering at the same time we noticed one vehicle did not want to pay parking. It was his turn at the toll booth and just drove right through. The attendant literally tried chasing him down, but obviously couldn't get to him. She called security. Hopefully they caught him. He probably got kicked out if they ended up catching him.

It amazes me the things people try to get away with, especially in an area where there's a gazillion cameras

Watching Millennium Force on the webcam here and there over the last week or so, it's noticeably ripping through the course. Earlier in the season, the trains would rove over the island hills a little bit sluggishly, behaving as though the ride just got out of bed. Now it appears to be wide awake, as every train is hauling like it just chugged coffee. If anyone had a "meh" ride on it last month, I'd recommend revisiting it in these current conditions -- it looks like it's giving some great rides.

People say it has no airtime but especially in the front row the last two hills are borderline ejector. It was running stupidly fast on Wednesday and Thursday.

The outside temperature plays a huge roll on Millennium's speed. Once it gets to about 80 degrees it really lets loose and on those 90+ days that's the millennium Force you've heard all the hype for.

^or just ride it in/after the rain. That was the last thing I did at Cedar Point before we left for Cleveland. Nothing could have beaten that except maybe riding later in the evening and riding in the front row, but circumstantially that wouldn't have been possible. That ride was amazing. Even better was the fact that it was just about the only thing in the park running and the hype in the station was the highest I'd seen, even higher than at night.

The three times I've visited the park were twice in may and once in September. My first trip and first time ride was in about sub 40 degree weather during early entry. Second trip in September was probably mid 70s. Last month was about 60-70 degree. Going next week, the 28th with DP, so let's hope it's not as sluggish.

This. While I didn't ride it last Saturday when it was 92 due to the long lines (we waited and got FL+ on Sunday), we rode it Sunday when it was 80 and had an awesomely fast ride in Row 2.

 

I have noticed that during cooler Halloweekends that it tends to run a little more sluggish - especially at night.

Really? I would expect the ride to run slower during Halloweekends but as the day goes on it should speed up (not to the speed of a summertime night ride but to a faster speed than it ran earlier in the day). It should be running the slowest early in the morning.

 

Nitro for example would often almost valley during Holiday in the Park at park open when it was in the 40's but after it ran all day it would run much faster, even as temps went down into the high 20's.

^ My "sluggish" experience was during a Friday night during Halloweekends where the temp didn't get above 50 and the park didn't open until 6:00. I want to say that we rode it around 7-8:00 so perhaps later that night it might have warmed up more. I also wanted to think that it might have been down early, so it's entirely possible that we got one of the earlier rides of the night on it.

 

I just remember it being freezing ass cold and how my face was numb after the experience. Sluggish or not, it's still one of my favorite rides - especially at night!

You're correct, Millennium still speeds up during Halloweekends as the day goes on, the temperature plays a roll on how fast it will speed up to.

So that's the fabled Aquatrax?

Yeah, MF is the legendary 300+ foot Intamin giga AquaTrax that all the Dippin Dots guys and gals talk about.

Hey everyone, I'm noticing that there is a Season Passholder ride night this week on Millennium and Rougarou, How exactly do these ride nights work? How long do they typically go on for?

 

To get in you'll just need to show your platinum pass, and they'll go for 1 hour. In Millenniums case if we finish the regular line at 10:25 we'll open for platinum pass holders from the 10:25-11:25. Hope that helps.
