Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I've rarely carried anything that needs stowing, but my interest in stowing in a cubby declined after seeing several instances where other people left soda containers that spilled over the rest of the bin. Theft isn't the only concern

 

And this is why six flags installed numbered drink holders in the stations. Not only does it prevent a spillage in the cubby, but it improves drink cup sales and guest satisfaction.

 

That would be great, but unfortunately it appears that Cedar Fair isn’t very into guest satisfaction anymore.

Sorry, but this can’t be 100% a response to a safety issue. Because if it was, the lockers that are supposed to be foolproof would be free and the lockers would be in a location that allows you to place all non-attached items into whatever storage method was available just before the train leaves, all to ensure they get used. Put up signs threatening legal action all you want, but it’s soemthing that CP is very well aware is going to make many people unhappy and that they’re likely to not follow the rules.

On a totally different topic ... does anyone has experience, positive or negative, with any of the campgrounds around Sandusky? I'm not looking for national park quality, just a cheap place to legally sleep after seeing if the SV hype is justified Preferably not in a toxic waste dump or super noisy.

 

The ones I've found on line also have cheap cabins, in case it's raining harder than a tent can handle (but might be reserved in advance). Hotel Breakers is nice but much more expensive than it used to be

East Harbor State Park is about a half hour from the park and has a large campground. Ohio has a nice state park system with well-maintained facilities so if you are cool with tent camping it could be a good option.

All I know is I'm stoked to go. My brother just gave me his own mini TR ha he's always avoided coasters but been slowly getting into them. He found CP to be heaven on earth basically. Gotten so used to it, was nice to hear that magic again. Also said not only was FL+ beyond worth it (including 5 min wait for SV) but that SV was beyond words.Also he found early access worth it even with fast pass so I'll likely cave and do it but prob breakers express.

They're cracking down on phones. Will hot sauce be next?

 

Sandusky Register

 

SANDUSKY — Police arrested an Amherst boy Saturday after he allegedly threw a packet of hot sauce at a Steel Vengeance train at Cedar Point, which apparently exploded and hit some people in the face and eyes.

 

The 17-year-old boy was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

 

A Sandusky officer responded to a call from Cedar Point police at about 4:20 p.m. about riders being hit by hot sauce, according to a Sandusky police report.

 

Seven Steel Vengeance riders were treated by Cedar Point EMS, the report states. One woman had to get her eyes flushed out after being exposed to the hot sauce.

 

Police checked security footage and allegedly saw a group of four boys, one of whom allegedly threw the packet as the train passed by, according to the report.

 

 

Officers found the boys and one allegedly admitted to throwing the hot sauce, the report states.

 

Police arrested the boy and took him to the Erie County Juvenile Justice Center.

LOL people aren't pulling their wallets and keys out in the middle of the ride. The park is obviously concerned about people pulling phones out. How is that not obvious?

Speak for yourself. Some of us like to count our money on a regular basis. I often pull out my wallet on coasters and count loudly, "One...two...a-thrree" and that way people know I have $3.

 

Also, am I detecting a new filter here?

 

Locker

 

Oh yeah!

The KOA is VERY basic, but has clean facilities. Its located in a weird area, behind some apartments, but for $30/night its great. About a 5 min drive to CP.

Seems like this policy is here to stay

 

That is the craziest theme park sign I have ever seen---telling people have their phone in a queue line is a crime. In 2018.

^^Having your phone in line is not a crime per say.

 

Failure to follow written or verbal safety instructions is the crime. Therefore failing to follow this direction can be considered a crime.

 

Yes, humans suck so here we are.

That's a cop out. The sign is clearly implying "keep your phone outside or else..."

 

People are stupid. Doesn't mean the park can't find reasonable solutions to counteract that.

That may be, but you'll also find that exact language regarding Ohio Revised Code on every single CP, KI, CPS ride safety signage at ride entrances. It's on a small board at the bottom. It's added to this sign to reinforce that it is a misdemeanor to not follow it. It is also I believe printed in the park map for rider safety information. It's there. Has always been there and will always be there. This sign is because humans will ignore every other sign and piece of literature that stats that code.

Hey all, haven’t posted here in a while but we are planning to be at the park tomorrow and are trying to hit all the major rides. From experience are the lines usually bad on a Wednesday? We are planning to hit Steel Vengeance first of course then go over to Maverick with our logic being the lines wouldn’t be too too bad by then as most people will be heading for SV. If anyone has any tips for us or what order we should head towards the coasters, it would be much appreciated!! Thank you!

Am I missing the Millennium Force love-fest?

 

I have noticed that the ride has been universally praised by everyone this year. I'm not sure if it's because it's running any different, because enthusiasts are finally coming to their senses or what but welcome to the party.

 

I believe the shorter waits are influencing people's decisions, even if they won't admit it.

That's an interesting observation - MF never had longer than a 15 minute wait when I was at CP in 2016 and I never hesitated to call it my favorite coaster (except after riding Maverick in the back... it took some more rides on MF to stop me from doing something silly and normal like putting Maverick above it). I wonder if waiting longer for something screws with your expectations psychologically, aside from just being able to ride something more times.

Hey guys, so I will be heading to CP next week on Tuesday and Wednesday. My last visit was back in August 2003, so a lot has changed since then. That trip I stayed at Breakers and had a fantastic time. With cash kind of tight, I will be staying at Breakers Express. I had a few questions:

 

1) Since I will be staying at a CP property, I will have access to early entry on Wednesday. What entrance should I use to get me to Steel Vengeance/Maverick the quickest? And what would be the best place to park in relation to that entrance?

 

2) I know the hotels offer you the chance to get tickets at the lobby. Do they also sell Fast Lane at the hotels?

 

3) What are some good places for food after park closing in the immediate area of Breakers Express?

 

Thanks in advance!
