Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Friday will probably be Ohio State Day with an equally disorganized preview night to follow. Lines for Season Pass processing will be hilariously long and will lead to tons of bitching on TPR and social media from people who were too dumb to just renew their passes online and keep using the same ones.

 

On the upside, if Cedar Point botches your renewal, you can get if fixed right away and then maybe split to Kings Island for a park that's got a couple weeks under its belt.

 

Seriously though, opening weekend is a consistent nightmare and should be avoided at all costs.

Great Sage Coasterbill, it would also be so helpful if you could provide us the dates of the first water main break and power outage.

 

 

To be fair, I'm not exactly going out on a limb by saying any of things I just said. I guarantee that pretty much all of it will be 100% accurate because it happens every single year. Opening day is ALWAYS a disaster. If you're a passholder then by all means go and get some rides in, but if it's a big trip for someone and they've been saving up to visit I would wait until at least Memorial Day to visit Cedar Point. Seriously...

^ Shouldn't be too bad.

 

Weather is sunny and 85, so the Magnificent Carnac in me expects Soak City and the water rides in the park to be getting more of a workout than the dry rides.

Valravn, Maverick, TTD will all have 20 minute to one hour waits while the water park, Thunder Canyon and Snake River Falls will actually have lines.

Cool...if you have PP's, hit Maverick and MF for early entry if they aren't broken down. If they are, go to Valravn and then to TTD. Everything else will likely be a walk-on at some point during the day.

 

And if you do Soak City, the swim-up bar usually has no wait. Who knows, you might even see me there!

So it looks like my son and I are going to be doing a Kennywood, KI & CP run over the Labor Day weekend. We're going to be hitting Kennywood on Friday as our first stop, but I can't decide whether to do CP on Saturday and KI on Sunday, or vice versa. I've already mentally prepared to drop the cash on Fast Lane at both parks, but what do you guys suggest?

Cedar Point has the same hours Friday, Saturday and Sunday since Monday is a holiday. They close earlier on Monday. They also have passholder ERT Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights (though I'm not sure if you're a passholder).

 

Friday: Millennium Force & Rougarou

Saturday: Top Thrill Dragster & Raptor

Sunday: Valravn

 

We'll be there all weekend.

I'm heading there on Saturday the 3rd! Can't wait to head back to the park, last time I went was in 2002!

I am, and about to renew. Only one I could take advantage of there is MF, since the kiddo is just over the 48" mark, so I'm not super concerned about that -- but good to know regardless.

See you at Mean Streak, then!

And damn right you will.

Not going to lie -- he's been wanting to ride MS ever since he saw the POV, since he absolutely loves wooden coasters (I think having Phoenix & Twister as his first two big boy coasters helped in that regard). Thanks to its impending permanent closure, it took a lot of wheeling and dealing with the wife on my part to be able to take him out there in advance of its shutdown. Plus I never got to ride it during my previous visit either, so that's an (arguable) added bonus for me.

 

I think I'm leaning more towards Sunday since it will make the drive back home on Monday a tiny bit easier, and if there's no difference in the operating hours, I'll need every little bit of sanity I can muster.

Anyone at the park today or tomorrow??

 

Also just wanted to add that I rode my last ever ride on MS. Did this ride get worse this year?

 

Last year I remember it being "boring" and "uneventful" but not deathly bumpy. I am not kidding when I say that was the worst ride I have ever had from MS. Out of all of my ridden coasters that is officially the worst I have ridden, and I have been on some bad ones. Obviously I am repeating something said a thousand times.
