Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Well, one thing that wasn't mentioned is that MELT will be the only place *in* the park selling LIQUOR and Cocktails! And what better place than the Joe Cool area, lol.

I am probably more stoked about this than anything else mentioned from WCO. Every restaurant they have had here in the past has sucked, so it's nice to see that they are finally trying something completely different & unique - as well as local to the state to boot.

 

Love the overall direction the park is going...but of course, when said park direction involves good food, cold beer and liquor, I will always love it.

 

And of course, the 900 pound gorilla sitting at the Northern-most section of the park has piqued my interest as well

If I can help it, I usually avoid eating at parks due to the fact that the prices are absurd and the food is abysmal. When I went to the Point in spring last year, I got Subway and a grilled chicken combo (somewhere at the far end of the park), then for kicks, I tried the fresh cut fries when I came back in the fall. What did they all have in common? They SUCKED. Between that and the gristle-ridden brisket I got down in Carowinds, part of me never wants to give any park so much as a thin dime for their food again.

 

The lone exception might be Famous Dave's at the Point. Sure, I ended up dropping over thirty bucks on myself by the time I was done, but I DINED LIKE ROYALTY. Beef tips, barbecue chicken, ribs, a corn muffin, baked beans; I sat at the bar feeling like a king from olden times. Then I immediately walked on to Gatekeeper and miraculously didn't barf all over myself. Truly one of my proudest achievements.

 

Based on a few things I've read in this thread, though, it sounds like I did it wrong. I probably won't make it back to Sandusky for at least three years, but in the meantime, I'm starting to compile a list of places I need to hit while I'm in the park. Here's all I've got so far:

 

- Pink's

- Melt

 

Any other must-visits?

What records do you think they will try to break for a wood / hybrid coaster?

 

The obvious of speed, inversions and height, but I'm thinking they could go completely left field with this one like most combined air time or most drops in general. Would be cool to see a RCT style woodie with a ton of hills that never seems to end.

So far I've only been on Wicked Cyclone and Lightning Rod and I wouldn't put either above those coasters. I have the unpopular opinion that Thunderhead is better than Lightning Rod though. I also rode El Toro the day after Wicked Cyclone last year and though it was close the Bull is just plain better IMO

Nope, you pretty much got it right. Pink's and Famous Dave's are great. Melt looks amazing, too. I will definitely try that myself next time I'm there.

Ive only ridden Outlaw Run and it has a pretty fast lift compared to most coasters I have been on. No matter how good this new coaster is, I still don't think I'd be able to put it above Outlaw Run. That double barrel roll is hard to beat.

 

What about a triple barrel roll?

Eh. For me I think the double barrel roll is perfect. It's not to little and not to much. . . It's just right!! I think 3 in a row might start feeling a little repetitive. Like on the 10 inversion coasters. All the rolls near the end just seem so redundant and not that enjoyable.

I'm hoping this thing doesn't have inversions. A balls to the wall intense twisty air time machine would be perfect I think. Then again, I'm not one to go nuts for inversions.

I wouldn't say its a must, but if you've never had Chickies crab fries give them a try, they are fantastic.

For those who care about the new all season drink plan it is now available for purchase on Point's website for $26.99 (other CF parks currently have it at $29.99) before processing fees and taxes.

 

highlights from the FAQ page for those who don't read it:

-Drink plans on platinum passes are valid at all CF parks

-Valid thru end of season events such as Winterfest

-if you purchased the bottles but have yet to redeem you can change to the cup plan when you redeem your voucher

-if you have a bottle and mid-season you want to change your plan you can do so at guest services for a $2.99 exchange fee and they take your bottle and deactivate it.

-1 refill every 15 minutes (same as the bottle)

^Yeah, as much as I was glad for the environmentalism of not using disposable cups, I might still do it for the convenience.

How about a lift hill and a mid-course launch?

They need to introduce a plan that includes a drink with your meals only. You get a drink included with each meal used on your dining pass and add $12 cost to dining pass. I know for me I only really get drinks when I eat =, thus usually just get water and bring a small collapse cup. It's totally not worth paying $27 for someone like me in the past and also the bottle carrying issue. The only problem this really solves is the rides that exclude items. Since SF gives you the drink season bottle for free with purchase of gold dining I use the bottle. SF parks are not as exclusionary on items in the line.

a mid-course launch?

 

Yes! I been sayin' that since last summer. I'm all for them taking their time and opening this thing in 2018. But I hope, with such a nice long lead time, they will really go all out. Even if they don't, it will still be a great ride, yeah... we all know that. Just me wishing!

 

Double loading station, mid-course launch, longest coaster, etc...

Kings Dominion has it as well theirs is $115. I wonder how much that would be if they implemented it at all the parks and offered it with platinum. i wouldn't be surprised to see $300. heck for Cedar Point alone it wouldn't surprise me if it would be that much.

Heck, I'd expect more in the $500-600 range. And if I lived within an hour of CP I'd think that would be very reasonable.

 

edit* Looking back to Six Flags doing their All Season Flash Pass, SFGAm has it at $400, SFMM at $500. Not sure how successful it was, but they are still doing it so it must have worked. I'd definitely think CP would be a lot more.

Sometimes it's easier to be a self proclaimed hypocrite than a liar. I say this from personal experience...

 

If Cedar Point offers it, I would expect the price point to be much, much higher.

Honestly, I hope it is. I know I sound like a spoiled jerk, but last summer when we paid a couple hundred bucks for our FL+ I didn't feel like we got our money's worth, since we still waited about thirty minutes for a lot of coasters. I would have been fine with paying a lot more for more exclusion.
