Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Hey, are still other entrances? I remember many years ago there were other entrances, once was near the back corner of the park, (which today would dump you right by SV and Maverick) but it was only for CP hotel users. This was many years ago though.

 

Are there still multiple entrances and if so do you need to be at a CP hotel? I always stay off site but if there are ones that can get you way closer to SV I am game. (Even moving at a fast pace by the time I got from park entrance to SV lines were already big)

There are four entrances. Main entrance, boardwalk, marina and hotel/water park entrance. Hotel entrance is closest to TTD, Gemini, Steel Vengeance and Maverick. You may use any entrance. That being said, even with early entry at the hotel entrance, there will be a good line for Steel Vengeance at opening unless you join the running of the bulls at rope drop and can run fast for half a mile. When the water park is open the park does not allow access to the back lot until 1/2 hour after the early entrance posted time (that was the case last year). You can however park in the front lot and walk the board walk past the hotel to the rear entrance for early entry (This is a nice walk along the beach). That takes about 15 minutes so plan accordingly.

I'm a Platinum Passholder every year and whenever I go to Cedar Point, I always arrive about an hour before Early Entry opens and drive around to park in the waterpark lot. Even when it's the middle of summer when the waterpark is open, park officials don't give a crap about passholders parking back there. I've been able to park back there every single time and it's never closed. If you remember, CP opens the park in stages. At 8:15, the gates open and everyone goes to the first holding point. At 8:30, you go to the second hold point and wait there until 9:00, when the park opens. From there, I suggest doing the Running of the Bulls so the line for SV is short. I also suggest keeping your phone in your car for Early Entry, as you would have to get a locker otherwise, allowing the line to build up. Hope this tip helps!

I dream, but it would be cool if it were something other than a cafeteria hall. Although, being a basic bitch American with a Polish ancestry and an Italian last name, when I hear of an Italian restaurant I think of Pizza. And beer. I wouldn't be mad if there was an opportunity to order a decent quality whole pizza to be split among a few people.

Would love to see a fast fire'd pizza place like PizzaFire or Blaze show up at the park. That would be a perfect location as it would fit two of the giant ovens that cook a pizza in 180 seconds. They move through lines very quickly and the pizza is actually quite good.

 

Since the park has been working closely with the LeBron James Family Foundation and James is a huge investor in Blaze I wouldn't be shocked to see one show up at the park.. It would definitely be a huge upgrade over the current pizza options.

I was also hoping for an outside business. The thought of an outside business moving in leads me to believe that such a business would already be advertising on social media. I think that's what Melt did. I don't think there'd be any reason to keep it a secret. Who knows.

I have no expectations for this whatsoever because I feel like if they're using the kitchen to make picnic area food they're going to continue serving whatever they're serving in the picnic area.

 

While I personally contend that Midway Market sucks, I don't understand why they would ever change such an efficient setup.

Am I alone in thinking that eating Italian food at a theme park (excluding pizza I guess... and like Epcot) is totally weird?

 

Throwing in the Italian food offered at BGW as another exception but I would agree with you. I tend to stay away from anything heavier than pizza when at parks. BUT if CP could offer BGW level quality Italian dishes ( like that would ever happen) I could change my mind.

 

Also, whatever goes into Midway Market's location I'm hoping it would have some options on the dining plan, as more options outside of burgers, hot dogs and chicken tenders are always welcome.

 

Assuming we will get an "official" announcement at Chill Out in February.

Not if you're in Central Pennsylvania at Knoebels or DelGrosso's.

Agreed, Knoebels had some awesome stuff. SDC had some really good stuff at the former Mary's Springhouse too, before it was converted to the Qdoba-type burrito bar.

 

Just depends on how well it's executed really.

Maybe its because I live in a major east coast metropolitan area where we can get actual, real quality non-Olive Garden Italian food that its something I can't imagine many parks could pull off? We know most parks are not making gravy from scratch, and that's a problem. It's like the sushi place at Great Adventure... I would laugh at anyone for even considering buying sushi from a Six Flags. But on top of that Italian food is just generally so heavy... I can't imagine eating a bunch of spaghetti and then wanting to do anything other than sleep.

Yeah, being from the northeast automatically makes you a pizza and italian food douche.

 

I'm the same way. We live in a frozen wintry hellscape for 3 months out of the year, taxes are astronomical and the traffic is atrocious so you better believe that when there's finally something we can gloat about (Italian food) I don't mind doing it. I have no interest in eating pizza or italian food from any American theme park not owned by Disney or the DelGrosso or Knoebel family (edit: I didn't even see Canobie's post until after I said the exact same thing ).

Italian food at Cedar Point would consist of someone opening up an instutional sized can of Chef Boyardee. I do not want this to happen.

 

I'm thinking Midway Market isn't going to change all that much. Maybe they are updating the decor. I would appreciate update in the quality of the food, but I'm betting it will stay at it's current Golden Corral levels.
