Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

you get early entry with Hotel Breakers.

 

and yes, worth every penny to be steps away from your hotel room.

 

(I'd recommend Melt! for lunch, pop back to the room to put leftovers in the fridge (you WILL have leftovers), then back to the park)

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

OK these are freaking cool. https://cedarpointonlineshop.com/

Made it out to Cedar Point this past weekend, October 17th-18th with my mom and dad to visit my sister working at the park. My sister works at Dorney, but since they closed early, a bunch of full time

^ What he said. And "if you only had the extra time..." there's Famous Dave's BBQ

on the marina dock, walking distance from the Harbor/Marina Gate in the park.

Thanks y'all! Booked my flight (great deal) and my room yesterday. Now I'm wondering if I should've waited on the room with all the beer virus scare. Maybe could've gotten a better deal.

Def gotta add on FP, ya think they will have a sale on these around Memorial Day?

And taking time for that BBQ joint and Melt fo sho.

From this point forward, Fast Lane will be what it is. Don't expect any discounts.

Ok thanks. I'll call the hotel and see if they can bundle it into my package. They didn't have an option to do that when I made the reservation.

SO EXCITED! Have to map out my ride strategy when it gets closer.

Only discounts you can expect on FL+ at this point (who knows if things will change due to strange circumstances in 2020) is the in-park Platinum Pass discount. Which is FL+ for the price of FL, but this is an in park purchase only deal and not available if you pre-purchase online.

I can see Cedar point and all parks with many deals as soon as they opens. They will do what they can to get people into the parks. With them being closed a month or two longer then they thought.

Cedar Point is going to be an interesting case this season. I feel like for most parks, this will blow over and the season will eventually get underway in a semi-normal fashion but how in the hell are they going to staff this place now with probably no international help and with the need to bring in people from all over the country in a short period of time?

 

The Friday night Halloweekends ride lineup should be poppin'

When we went in 2018 during peak season it was already a staffing clusterf*** vs. what I had seen in 2010... rides opening hours late and with less workers. I'm assuming this year will feel like visiting a Six Flags park.

Why is Six Flags the default diss? Six Flags is much better at running parks with no staff than Cedar Fair. I'm not concerned about them at all. I swear, Great Adventure can open on a random October Thursday night for no reason and run every single stupid ride including both sides of the Skyway when the crowds don't justify it at all with a total staff of (slight exaggeration) six employees. It's like magic. I think they have Ooma Loompas. Yeah, I know... population density blah blah blah, that's all true but they're also just really, really good at it.

 

Meanwhile, Cedar Point requires a crew of approximately 837 people to run Top Thrill Dragster.

I'm curious to see which days will be added to the operating schedule since that is mentioned on the park website. Perhaps there will be some weekday operations in September beyond Labor Day, or maybe they might stay open an extra weekend or two into November.

Man I don't know what to do about my trip now. Thought I was being slick reserving hotel/park during the week the last week of May when crowds shouldn't be bad.. I've called about cancelling and getting a refund, but they said they were gonna charge me. If they end up not opening when I have my reservation they'll refund me with no cancellation fee. This is Hotel Breakers telling me this.

Learned my lesson to wait until as late as possible make reservations from here on out for most things.

Be honest with yourself: They aren't going to open in May. You'll get your money back.

I also don't really see the problem here. You wanted to do a trip to a certain time. If the park is open you can do your trip. If the park is not open, they'll refund you without a problem.

This is the normal, right way to go with every ticket/reservation you do.

If you want to cancel now because of your personal wish, you are hooked to their TOS. Also a normal way to go. Don't see why there is anyone to blame.

The staff of CP and the Breakers are going to absolutely do the right thing - there should be no worries.

Stupid me thought with a PANDEMIC happening they may waive the cancellation fees. When I planned this I had a job and knew my flight would actually be able to leave. A lot has changed since I made reservations.

Now we don't know what flight status will be along with everything else that comes with this chaos.

I'm in Texas, not like I can just take a drive if something happens with my flight, if they're even going to be open.

I too am dealing with not being able to get a refund for a trip I planned next month, but put things in perspective here - people are dying. Lots of people. F*cktons of people are out of work all of the sudden and have no idea if they're going to be able to go back to work at all. People have very real very serious problems that only seem to be heading in a worse direction. I don't think you're going to find much sympathy out of anyone here or elsewhere over a hotel reservation.

2 weeks ago I lost my job as well.

Most of us are in the same boat right now. Wasn't looking for sympathy was part bummed out I still won't get to ride at CP, part in disbelief they're hanging onto a cancellation fee during this time. I could use that money right now but I feel like it's in limbo.
