Recommended Posts

More new info from Cedar Point.

https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog/a-few-changes-to-discuss

 

Sandcastle Suites and the Breakwater Cafe are gone. The All-Wheels / Extreme Sports stadium is also gone. Future details coming later.

 

wow. . TBpony will be upset. . she LOVES that Extreme Sports show.

 

I don't remember even SEEING Sandcastle Suites, and we not only stayed at Breakers for 4 days, and walked the boardwalk a few times, but also rode Magnum multiple times, and from the maps, it looks like it's visible from there.

 

weird.

Is there a date that 2018 resort reservations will become available online? I keep trying to spec out a getaway next year and it won't do it. Apparently I'll need to be quicker than usual too given the loss of one option.

 

Edit: I was finally able to find something searching the topic. So it looks like they were available early November last year?

Someone asked that on the blog post and Tony said hoping around mid-november

How beautiful would the boardwalk look with sister Von Roll sky ride on the boardwalk that could take you from Gatekeeper down to Magnum's pretzel turn around..

 

Any gondola on the back half of the park would be amazing. I love seeing Cedar Point from up high, but the only opportunities are the few seconds at the top of TTD and MF.

 

My dream is a detachable high speed gondola from the Wicked Twister area.... all the way to Frontier Town. It would probably cross over parts of Corkscrew, Iron Dragon, MF, TTD, and help my feet rest.

Random question: when the park is closed during the week like it is this time of year, can people still stay in the hotels on the peninsula every day? I don’t know why anyone would want to do that but am just wondering if they can.

 

Nope. It's closed during the week.

I know, I freaking loved that show!! Hopefully they are able to relocate it somewhere else Sandcastle was located right at Magnum's turnaround, as in almost underneath the structure. You probably saw it and didn't even notice.

Welp, there go my rooming plans for coaster mania 2018. Damn, too, because it looked like the fit for what I needed and wanted.

 

I’m not at all heartbroken by the news of the Extreme Sports Stadium leaving. Goodbye!

I think I saw "something" behind the trees there, as we were turning around. But still didn't think about it, afterwards.

I personally didn't know Sandcastle Suites existed until I came across it walking around the property between orientation sessions for work at the park. I even questioned if it was still open at the time based on the outdated, faded appearance on the outside. I don't even recall any major advertising for the place either. Always seemed like Breakers, Castaway Bay, and Express were the lodging places the park would heavily promote. I'm surprised Sandcastle stuck around as long as it did.

Yup, that's the spot that Sandcastle was in Bill! I stayed there a couple years ago when Breakers was booked up. While it was definitely outdated and we had to quite literally shove large couch pillows under the mattress to keep it from sagging so much in the middle, it suited our needs OK enough. We spent so much time inside the park that by the time we got back to the room the only energy we had left was to quickly shower and collapse in bed.

With that said i should be at park some of Saturday and Sunday.

Does anyone know of a good sports bar in Downtown Sandusky?

 

The Thirsty Pony has everything you'd ever want:

I'm not sure what qualifies as "downtown Sandusky" but if you like seafood, Demore's is a great local dive:

Hey josh, what’s with the one-train op on MF tonight? I’ve been in the station for 20 minutes.

One train ops on Millennium are no fun for anyone, but definitely better than going down. That's one of the drawbacks of separate load/unload - it's only more efficient (and only marginally) when running three trains and destroys one train capacity.
