Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I’m going for the first time ever tomorrow. Opening to closing with Fast Lane Plus. Is it possible to park in water park lot and get in the Magnum entrance? I forget the tips and if they stop allowing you to park there after a certain time.

 

You can get there from the front lot now that the "boardwalk" has been built, so nah, they won't let you back there if you aren't going to the water park.

 

This seems to have changed back to allowing anyone to use that back lot. I have yet to be stopped or asked on my way back there. I haven't heard of anyone being turned away this season for not being a CPS guest. And I've parked there each time on my 6 visits and have yet to step foot inside the waterpark.

 

On my last Cedar Point trip, I was directed to the back parking lot in the early afternoon. However, that put me in good position to ride Magnum on my way in and on my way out.

Zach..... I totally forgot to tell you that I tried your tight seatbelt, loose lap bar trick for Magnum and we rode in the second to last car so we weren't over the wheel. It worked really well, no bruised thighs this time around and we went back and did a night ride on Magnum which was really nice since it goes down by the beach. Closest thing CP really has to a coaster that goes out into the deep dark woods.

Apparently the entire value of FL+ is tied to Steel Vengeance according to the Karen in the comments on Twitter

 

FL+ appears very valuable today as according to queue-times.com, Maverick, Millennium Force, Top Thrill Dragster, and Valravn are all pulling 90+ minute waits. Also, several rides that usually don't have much in the way of lines, such as Corkscrew, Gemini, Iron Dragon (which doesn't have Fast Lane), Magnum, and Rougarou, are each pulling around 45 minutes.

Don’t really do trip reports but this was my first time ever at the park after wanting to go for 19 years.

 

 

glad you had such a great time, and looks like you had incredible weather for it.

 

nice pics.

 

only one ride on Cedar Downs tho? . . my favorite flat in the park.

(and it's best if you're a bit buzzed. . shhhhhh)

Yep... I'd have gotten my $$$ worth by using it, but it gave an inch, so Karen is gonna Karen the hell out of it and try and take a mile...

 

Just her wording she used and the fact that she had a 48"+ kid with her made her fit the stereotype to a T so I had to point it out

Haha. Glad you liked it. That's Bill's tip, though. It worked good for Emily and I also!

 

I'm the front row/middle car/butt back/lean forward on The Boss advice guy! (I hate myself for thinking that much into it.)

So is the verdict yes or no on doing this? Going open the close probably next week and itd be convenient. Want to take the kids on their first hyper before they go on their first giga. But I also have Groupon vouchers so might have to go to the main gate anyways.

^ Yeah, you'll need to go to the main gate. None of the other gates have any sort of services, just someone to scan tickets/passes and stamp for re-entry.

 

I always recommend people park in the main parking lot and walk along the beach to the Magnum gate. It's really beautiful early in the morning. Not a super long walk, just get there early enough you don't have to rush.

Anybody watching The Boys on Amazon Prime?

 

SPOILER ALERT!!! (not really crucial to plot line): In the Episode where The Deep (think Aquaman-ish character) gets busted down to Sandusky, Ohio, his new handler tells him that they have the biggest roller coaster park in the whole U.S. of A., Cedar Point. Later, when a girl asks him if he likes roller coasters, he says he's more of a water park guy. To which she replies, "Well Cedar Point's got both"

 

Favorite lines from the handler: "Not much crime in Sandusky. I mean, we're not a shithole like Akron."

I'm not positive about the beach and marina, but I most definitely saw a ticket booth at the resort gate this year. I know for sure the beach and marina gates had ticket booths at one point, but I haven't payed attention to them this year (Though I don't see why there wouldn't be. I would think they want to have every opportunity to take people's money money money!).

You can purchase tickets at the Marina gate and Magnum gate (not sure about by Windseeker).

 

Not sure about pass processing as it's just electronically attaching your photo to the account.

I'm 90% sure their weren't ticket booths at the Beach entrance during my visit this summer. I recall them being pretty bare, just there to let people in and out. I'm not even sure if there was someone consistently there to stamp hands in all my trips through it.

Oh my bad! Thank you to Bill in that case! The Boss never actually bothered me and I miss the helix, but Magnum gave me bruises on my thighs until I tried the "trick".

Bert told me of "the trick" on our visit in 2017. So thanks to Bill, too!

It made it so much easier for Magnum re-rides. Which we actually did!

Bert on the Witches Wheel (RIP). June 4, 2017. I declined, riding it.

You know........maybe that's where I heard it. From Bert when we hung out at SFSTl, we were talking about Zach's Boss trick and now I'm kinda thinking that was all part of the same conversation. Bert did I get that from you? I can't remember now. Sucks to get old.

You can buy tickets there, I redeemed my Bring A Friend passes last year there.
