Check out this amazing photo compliments of Dave Morgan!! 

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

Cedar Point Operating Schedule is out for 2017. Start your planning now. I am going the first week they go to 10-10P... The week of Jun 12th, should be very light crowds during the weekday with kids still in school.

^ The All-Season cup is $27 +tax. Which would be fine for me, if I was visiting CP several times in a season.

But this past year, Cedar Fair had an all-day cup available for about $12, free drinks for the day you got it,

then $1 a refill the rest of the season. That's what I got myself at Knott's back in Sept. So I am hoping that

they'll offer the same, as they did this year. A cheaper cup.

What I picked up in Knott's back in Sept. There was a different colored one for all-season.

Magic Mountain had a similar pair of cups available as well, with their name on them.

Remember, these are the people responsible for your life, the lives of your children, and the lives of millions of other people. Not a lot of people know that a similar job in the industry pays nearly $10/hour more than these guys make. They make less than the landscapers at the same park!

Having been an employee in CP ride maintenance, I can certainly tell you that this is also definitely not the only grievance the guys have against the park. The managerial side of park maintenance is extremely corrupt. They will do anything possible to screw their hard workers so they can cash in on their bonuses at the end of the year.

Oh man, the schedule is out already. And, looking at it, my marching band's trip is planned on Memorial Day weekend....Oh boy..

 

Either way, yay to 2017! Already looking forward to possibly heading back to Sandusky next year!

You and your buddies better shovel a lot of snow this winter in order to save for FL+!

While there's no reason not to believe everything you're saying, without any knowledge of these types of behind the scenes contracts and how this one compares with standard industry practices I can't really offer an opinion either way. I wish everyone the best of luck and hope they can come up with a deal that works for everyone but the vast majority of people on this forum probably aren't qualified to contact the park with a strong opinion either way without any real experience with the situation.

Am I the only one who hopes this strike doesn't impact Mean Streak's work?

 

I would imagine that most of the work on Mean Streak is being completed by independent contractors, mainly RMC. They'll likely pour all available resources into making sure the project is not delayed for it's opening year of 20??.

I see Family with four cups. I do not understand why each person needs one if its free why not split them and just keep filling them up.

 

People just aren't that efficient. Me and three of my friends went for just one day earlier this season, and we all chipped in 5 bucks for the souvenir cup. You'll spend almost 5 dollars on a single drink, and this ensured that we would not be thirsty all day long. Even for one visit, it literally pays for itself.

 

A 7 dollar increase would make me think about it twice for just one day, but some people are visiting 5+ times a year, so they shouldn't be crying about value by any means.

Maybe a lot of groups dont want to share the drink cups is because people dont want to swap spit and germs....i know if i was with a group of friends and they all wanted to share i'd rather just buy my own separately but thats just me.

The comment originally was about families, If they are all your kids they can share and save $27 over each having one. Personally I don't think CP season drink bottles are advisable. CP doesn't have holders at all rides, like SF. CP they bottles are not free with the season dining pass. SF bottles much better deal IMO.

But CP doesn't run out of regular ass coke (or regular ass pepsi) and ice on a continual basis... and have 20 minute lines for a fill up.

They say you can't put lipstick on a pig, but AC/DC got me retroactively hyped enough in this video to almost shed a tear for Old Yeller. Whatever Cedar Point announces, I hope the park is able to reuse Thunderstruck in a feel-good "heading to the park/interviews/ride footage" montage. #DroppingHintsForMrClark #Thunderstruck #ButNotThunderhawk

It's funny to me how a huge famous park like CP's youtube is still ran with the equivalent of a 14 year old with an iphone and Windows Movie Maker. Most companies now you need a degree and years of experience doing professional video shoots and editing, and companies are anal about their image...there's just something so campy about CP's. Like I would expect Lake Compounce or Quassy Amusement Park to have that kind of youtube channel, not CP.

Cedar Point has it together when it comes to the website and social media. Aside from possibly Universal and smaller parks that can get away with a lot more when it comes to commenting back to people who ask stupid questions, they're hard to compete with. I've honestly never heard anyone complain about anything relating to their web presence before. Then again, enthusiasts can and will complain about absolutely everything.

TR said they stopped at the top of the hill for 5-8 seconds, that's a result of dispatching too early. And we also get that really loud sound of the anti-rollbacks droping when the train stops.

 

You should do that once every morning just to see if you can wake up the entire city of Sandusky with those anti-rollbacks. Good god those things are loud.
