Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

based on the picture, that looks like either a hurricane or a Rum Punch (I'd guess Rum Punch).

 

I found, while staying at Breakers, that if we ordered inside at the bar (while sitting AT the bar), they served in Glass.

but if we ordered from out by the firepits, they came in Plastic.

 

could have just been me, but that was my observation last year.

It was like the lake punch of something like that. I liked it a lot and it worked great as our 'kick off' drink. I ordered this one at the bar, but maybe we told them we weren't staying. When we went in 2016 they gave us the plastic cups too. Or, maybe they were running short on the plastic cups when you went. Who knows.

 

I like how CP isn't afraid to offer booze incentives.

I was served inside the bar just before it closed (11:30pm) and got plastic for both: the rum and coke (short plastic), and long island (tall plastic), which the bartender let me keep. They both had the Sand Bar logo on them.

 

I do enjoy drinking out of the glasses, don't get me wrong, but being able to keep the plastic cups was nice. It's just a shame if they're throwing away plastic ones they're serving that nobody cares about keeping. Seems like a big waste.

I found a perfect use for my Surf Lounge plastic glass I brought home....keeping my Skee Ball tickets together!

Just curious, I haven’t been able to be online lately, so I haven’t checked this thread for a little while...is there any update on 3 train ops for Steel Vengeance or still just 2 running at a time?

What's the plan for all those skee-ball tickets?

So I think I maybe, possibly could have discovered a loophole in the early entry system.

 

For anyone who has ever stayed at one of the CP hotels and took advantage of early entry... how do you get in for early entry? Is there a special ticket?

 

I ask because I’ve been noticing people enter through the resort entrance for early entry with what looked like standard tickets who parked in the lot and weren’t walking from Breakers. Now obviously they could have been at breakers express or the other one, and that would explain it.

 

But...

 

yesterday was the first time I’ve entered through the main entrance in a long time and we had to show a pass or something to get you past a checkpoint right in front of Raptor for early entry. At the resort entrance there is no checkpoint.

 

So I’m wondering could anyone with a regular ticket enter the park early through the resort entrance?

I believe that they can scan any ticket at the main gate and anyone can enter the holding area but only tickets with Early Entry can scan at the other two gates as (until this year) I don’t think there was a holding area at all.

 

I could be wrong, but I always assumed that was how it worked.

Unless things have changed within the 10 days since I have been to the park, they had an area set up behind Dragster checking passes and tickets to allow people back towards SV for early entry. This was even as later as 945am when we had our passes checked.

Last week the Express Hotel handed out early entry cards for hotel guests, but they did not check for them at the resort entrance by Magnum. They let all types of passes/tickets in at 9am regardless.

The usual crap I don't need, and can get much cheaper, anywhere else.

Last year's win(s) - I got into a sort of Groot thing, back then.

People kept asking me where I got this figure, but by then, they were all gone from the Arcade.

So far this year, I've gotten a sparkly snake!

^Exactly! Even if they cost you 600 skee ball tickets or so, lol!

 

By the way, the Skee Ball games at CP have much longer "bowling lanes".

Ours are half the length of those, which makes it less of a "challenge"

for anyone, including myself probably. I was terrible at the CP ones.

I'm heading to CP Friday Aug 17th and Saturday Aug 18th... Does anyone know the ballpark wait times for the major rides (SV, Val, Millennium, TTD, etc) with Fast Lane Plus? Thanks!

 

MF, Maverick and TTD will still have waits in a queue that could be as long as 45 minutes given where the FL+ line is incorporated into the regular line.

 

It's still better than the regular lines that those coasters will undoubtedly have on a summer weekend. Then of course you also have to consider any down time as Maverick and TTD are well known for suffering occasional down time during the course of a day.

 

Valravn dumps you into the station and I hear that SV does as well, so I wouldn't anticipate long waits unless you just happen to hit the FL+ line at the same time as a lot of other FL+ folks. Our wait time on Valravn with FL+ when it was new ranged from a complete walk-on to a 15-20 minute wait behind several other FL+ folks. Not too shabby considering the regular wait time posted was 1.5-2 hours just about every time we went to ride it.

 

I wouldn't think that wait times with FL+ on any of the other coaster or flats should be an issue for you, but as mentioned, it all depends on if you hit a line at the same time as a bunch of other people with FL+, or if the ride is suffering any down time.

^ I recall Maverick FL dumps you right in the station too. . tho there was always a line, that made it go down the split stairs, so sometimes it did take 10 minutes or so (more if breakdown).

 

but the one day I had FL+ at CP, we used it on Maverick several times, and got on fairly quickly.

Chiming in on the Early Entry convo, and also referencing a topic from earlier this year in the Carowinds thread, I have continued to have NO problem this season, getting everybody in my party in for Early Entry, even as the only Passholder. In the Carowinds thread I asked about it earlier this year before my trip there, because I noticed they specifically noted that only Passholders can get in for Early Entry there which was different than how I'd known CP to do it. At that time somebody told me they've never been able to get friends in for Early Entry at CP, while I have never NOT been able to get them in. In previous years, that was coming in through the front, but both times this year, it was back at the Magnum/Resort entrance, and yes, there was a little holding area that was blocked off where you enter the main midway there. I just showed my card, and we all went through. I guess I can't speak to anybody else's experience if it's different, but that's what I've always done, without issue.

^ it was I who said I’ve never been able to get others in for early entry on the Carowinds thread.

 

I’ve actually never tried, I emailed CP and their response was that nobody under any circumstances is allowed in early that isn’t a pass holder themselves or didn’t stay at one of the hotels. So I’ve been following the rules and just show up at 10.

 

But obviously they’re letting everyone in at the resort entrance. And while there is s holding area right in front of the Enterprise, they have never asked to show a pass or anything like they do at the front. So the next time I go with people who just have regular tickets we are all getting in early.

Hmm.. I’ve entered the park at the resort entrance almost 20 times this season and they have never asked to see my pass or anyone else’s that I have seen.

 

Every time after the national anthem it’s just been a free for all toward SV.

 

But now that SV isn’t open for early entry I’ve been entering at the front so maybe they’ve started checking back there.

Does anyone know how Early Entry works if you are staying at a resort, but would like to utilize Early Entry at the park the day you are scheduled to check in to the resort? For example if you are staying at Breakers checking in on a Saturday, but want to use Early Entry Saturday morning before you check into the Hotel.

Go to the desk in the morning (you can get back there as early as 8AM IIRC) and do your early check in. Basically what they do is give you a card for your early ride time that you can show the people at the barriers. The cards are good for 6 people each. They'll also send you a text message when your room is ready.

Thanks! Still ironing out the details of our trip later this fall but we will definitely be staying on property and utilizing early entry for at least one day, maybe 2, depending on how accommodating to our schedule the ferries to Put-N-Bay are.
