Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I’m headed to the park today. We drove all they way from central Missouri knowing the forecast today is going to be rough, but we are holding out hope that it will make for an experience like ^ yours.

 

Tomorrow is going to be f*cked, though. 72 and clear skies. Absolutely perfect weather, and it comes on a Friday right after the rain that will scare some people off today.

I am heading to the park sunday and staying til Tuesday. Looking forward to checking out the Frontier Festival, more so than the coasters.

 

The weather looks good for Monday, hot and humid. I am hoping it keeps some people away cause of the heat. I remember hearing last year the reason people stayed away was it was too hot. I never understood that. Rain is about the only thing that keeps me from going to a park.

The four acres of landfill revealed to be coming is very exciting. It's more likely to serve a new hotel than a new ride(s) though. It does open up a lot of speculation.

 

Do you mind pointing the direction where we can see or read something about this? I'd be interested to check it out.

I'm pretty sure this is not verifiable information at this time. Jason McClure mentioned it at Coastermania, and didnt say where in the peninsula it would be going, but it has been assumed it is going where Sandcastle was.

I don't see any overly hot days expected in Sandusky over the next 7 days. 80 (on Monday) is perfect.

I went last year on a weekday where the afternoon called for major storms. There was an hour of heavy rain and then the park cleared out. Steel Vengeance standby was only a 10-15 minute wait by the end of the day.

 

I don't think we were at CP on the same day last year, but there was a day last year (dreary weather forecast and the schools were out) when the park was so dead Millennium Force was allowing patrons to cut right from the exit platform to the queue line just outside the entrance, saving about 5-10 minutes of walking.

 

I'm going back to Cedar Point next Thursday (afternoon/evening) and Friday (morning) and I'm hoping it's less busy than my trip earlier in June, when it seemed like every school in a 100 mile radius had an outing on one of the two days I was there.

 

^^ 80 is hot compared to what we have had since winter ended.

Agreed. However, 80 isn't bad. I've been to the Point on days where it was in the 90s. Still warm, but not as hot as my first Kings Island trip (the heat exhaustion trip) or my BGT/SWO/USF/IOA trip last September (where the heat index hit 100 on all three days)

^ I love the Magic Gate! And I don't think it was the same day since Millennium Force was closed until the last hour of operation that day.

 

A few weeks ago on a Friday night (May 17th I believe), Millie’s magic gate was open....such a beautiful sight!

I'm just hoping it's at least 80 because we would like to try the water park for once when we are there in mid July. I don't really think of it as being hot til it hits 90.....not sure I can handle water park rides if it's in the 70's. Last time I was there it was in the 40's so 80 would be awesome!

Gemini has been closed all day, appears to be some issues relating to dispatching and block sections. Red and Blue have been testing but never together, and for a while, blue was stuck on the MCBR.

Also, something i’ve experienced these last 2 days in the park is that literally every single line takes significantly longer than the posted wait times at the entrance. Are they just ridiculously bad at estimating or is the time usually accurate?

 

I’m currently in-line for Raptor, which was posted as 45 minutes. It’s been 50 minutes already and I still have half the switchbacks. What gives??

^Hmm, I was there yesterday and everything I waited for was exactly half the posted wait time on the app.

 

Also, that “legendary” Millennium force re-entry gate was open Thursday, but we had just gotten off our first rode in 10 years, and it was awful. We sat up front in IIRC Red train (I know for a fact it wasn’t Blue) and the whole ride jackhammered throughout the course. My father and I were extremely disappointed that one of our previous all-time favorites appeared to had aged well. We vowed it another attempt because we felt that it of all rides was it worth a chance at redemption, but because it was lightly raining we passed on the re-entry gate.

 

Last night, we took our second ride on Millennium to end off our trip just like we did 10 years ago and prayed to go it would be better. Sure enough, sitting in row 2 of Blue train, we had every bit of as good of a ride as we remembered long ago.

 

We both came to the conclusion that something was f**ked about the exact row of the train we rode in the first day.

 

I always think about writing trip reports while I visit parks and what all I would write, but I’ve never actually have gotten to it. However, this trip went so incredibly well that I think for once I’m actually going to complete a wordy, multiple-part photo TR for this in a couple days, so look forward to it.

^ I basically only ride Millennium Force in the front, but I thought it was riding as great as ever last month.

 

Same here, rode front row on the Blue train yesterday and it was running amazing as ever!

Blue train was great as ever, but something about the front of one of the other two trains was just awful. It really sucks that my brother who we brought to the Point for the first time this trip left with a tainted experience of Millennium Force; he only rode it that first time with us.

Maybe the trains need a little more extensive refurbishment.

 

Out of the 20 or so rides I've had in the last few years only only a couple were pretty bumpy. We found out our favorite seat is the 2nd to last. It's pretty smooth and it's a lower seat, which I feel are less rattly. It's also in the back car but it doesn't hold that 2-3 extra train wait that the back row can sometimes hold. I recommend this seat.
