Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

We just stayed at the Motel 6 on Rye Beach Rd, and the accommodations were great for the price. For about 83 bucks a night we got a room with a center island that had a fridge , microwave , and small sink. We had a one bed so the other half of the room had a couch. The hotel had a indoor pool and hot tub. It was about a 5 minute drive from the park and they were pet friendly with no extra charge which helped us out a lot. Couldn't recomended enough.

 

I didn't realize the Motel 6 was pet friendly, I swear I did a search a month ago for pet friendly hotels in the area and didn't come up with much and what I found was going to charge me an arm and a leg. Were you the one who asked about CP's dog kennels a couple months ago? If so, what were they like?

 

For us, we get to CP once a year if we're lucky. It's a little getaway and since it's usually very hot out having a hotel right on the island to walk to for even 30 minutes a couple times a day to rest, change shoes, have a snack, put on more sunscreen, is a huge bonus. Not sure if it's a $400 bonus at those prices posted, however!!

Every Motel 6 is pet friendly. If you're going the cheap route I actually don't mind pet friendly hotels. I'd much rather stay in a hotel that's cheap because it's full of people with pets than a hotel that's cheap because it's full of teenagers who play ultimate frisbee in the parking lot until 4AM (looking at you piece of sh*t Super 8 near Kings Island). I like dogs, I don't like people. It's an easy decision for me.

 

And I know Prozach and others will tell me that I shouldn't stay in cheap hotels and that ignorance is bliss and they're totally, 100% right I'm sure but I'll enjoy my blissful ignorance for now. I used to pick hotels by going to Kayak and selecting the cheapest one at a chain I've actually heard of. Now I usually pick one a little more expensive than the cheapest one assuming that the cheapest one is a sh*t hole. I'm moving up in the world, just very slowly.

Me and my wife usually get the 50 dollar hotel rooms. We are signed up with choice hotels and earn points and rewards. We haven't had a bad experience yet with a cheap choice hotel room. But when it comes to CP we usually stay at breakers express. By booking less expensive hotel rooms, we can get fast passes at new parks and visit more parks in a year!

That's not even the worst thing going on at that place

People online are claiming that the announcement for Mean Streak is coming on the 18th.. I understand that Tony said that an announcement will be made sometime after closure, but are we sure that it will happen RIGHT after? Did I miss something or are people just being impatient (like normal fanboy behavior ) ?

I'm 26 though, I can see how you'd be confused, I look twelve and was throwing a frisbee around...

At this point with no RMC coasters for 2017 announced yet, and since we knew by this time last year of all 4, it's pretty much guaranteed that Mean Streak RMC will open in 2017. Twisted Colossus was a huge amount of work but completed in under 8 months, and Mean Streak will be more or less the same workload but with the colder climate it may delay opening until June.

I'm late to the discussion, but I was under the assumption that if Mean Streak is to be converted by RMC, it would be happening in 2018?

 

Nobody knows what's going on with Mean Streak and anyone that claims they do is lying. All we know is that it's closing on Friday.

Well obviously SOMEBODY knows... They just won't say anything in favor of retaining their employment with The Company.

Well obviously, but those who talk don't know and those who know don't talk so I didn't think it needed clarification.

Better keep some of this at home just in case, William:

We made the mistake of staying at the super 8 near kings island. This was the worst hotel that we EVER stayed at. Everything from the bed bugs, rude employees, and blood stained floor, dead roaches, door lock that did not function, questionable clientele, hair on the pillows, and constant running toilet.

 

Don't even get me started on the @$$hole front desk clerk. For an extra $20- $30 a night, you can get a much nicer/safer hotel.

This. Some of the things that have been seen there cannot be unseen.

I emailed the park asking about this a few days ago and got this reply:
I believe they may mention something on the 16th of September what is going to take place of the Mean Streak.

 

I feel like the news stations, this website, and the Cedar Point themed websites would have received something prepping them for an announcement, if it were happening on the 16th. At least, that's what happened with Valravn.

Maybe they'll announce an announcement date at the Last Rites Ceremony. It's really anyone's guess at this point but mine is if they don't announce RMC Streak this friday, maybe they'll announce when they're going to announce it! Wouldn't be the first time they left us with a cliffhanger. In all seriousness though that's what makes it fun

I'll be curious to see how the Breakers Express rates change after the renovation. We stayed there 4 nights and between 2 people it was around 260, which included the tickets and funpix. Pretty schweeet deal to me, and no extra charge for being walking distance to the Pony. No brainer for me.

 

Breakers Express has been my go-to hotel when visiting CP. Always affordable, averaging $150-175 a night which isn't too bad considering you get early entry with only a 5 minute drive to the park. With a price tag of $400+ for the same benefits with just with a 2 minute walk, Hotel Breakers has become too expensive. With a three night stay for two at Breakers (or other on-site properties) with the ticket combo, you'll easily dish out over $1k. And at those prices, my destination veers from Amusement Parks to sunny beachfront in Key West. Just my 2 cents.

Yes I am, just had to wait for a free moment to post some pictures.They were satisfactory, not exactly the greatest but it was good for our boy. It is definitely a kennel, they have 4-5 larger runs in the back that are on concrete, and they have smaller crates. They do not walk your pet but provide water and food. The two employees that were there were great. They do seem to pay attention to the dogs, when we picked him up he mentioned the one dog was nervous and by pawing at the door had a cut on his paw. The employee stated that he called the owners to let them know, so it was good to know that if something did happen they would get ahold of the owner. If your dog is crate trained then I think they would do well. Our puppy was crying like crazy the first time we left him, by the second day he was pulling us to go back in! He could see other dogs so I think that helped calm him down since he likes being around other dogs. Overall I thought that doggywood at Dollywood was a bit nicer but pet check was a great option at the park, since otherwise I'm not sure we would have been able to go at all. Also yes all motel 6 are pet friendly. Here's a few pictures.

No my wife didn't stay in there with him :) these are the runs on the back.
