Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

^ Hmmm. With everybody wearing deodorant and perfumes, and probably not wearing anything that's actually odorless, maybe the 6 feet apart thing should be a permanent thing? Especially on those hot days, hmm?

 

Just a wee suggestion.

Certain coaster enthusiasts won't have any trouble keeping people six feet away from them.

Well, given how KI was only allowing Platinum Pass holders to reserve one day in advance, making multi-day trips impossible to plan, I went ahead and booked 3 nights at Express (there's no way I was spending the $275 a night at Breakers when I'm use to less than $75 a night for the motels I typically stay in). We'll see how that goes.

I didn't even bother trying; actually I wasn't even aware that there was one. I booked through Hotels.com to earn my rewards nights.

Operating schedule has been released. Open 11am to 8pm every day July 9 through September 7. No dates on the schedule after Labor Day yet.

Makes sense... they're probably holding out hope that they can salvage Halloweekends. If they still have to severely limit crowds by then it may be better to just open the park as normal without the added expense of haunt mazes that won't be able to increase the number of guests in the park anyway. In that case I expect them to throw up some pumpkins for 2 months, close at 7pm and call it a season.

 

The only other option would be a crazy, drastic change like closing the park around 4:30 or 5:00 and doing a hard ticket event. In the past I didn't think they had the infrastructure to support it but they've upgraded their infrastructure and they would need to cap attendance. Maybe this is the year they go for it?

Any word on if Platinum holders can get multiple day reservations yet or should I bite the express bullet to guarantee a second day? OR should I do that anyways as now both times I have looked at CP hotel deals it's either too expensive or just bad review.

If it's anything like how WoF and KI is doing things, no you will not. You can only have one reservation active in the system at a time. I saw the same and booked 3 nights at Express for a reasonable price.

 

On a side note, it appears (based on the FAQ page), that Cedar Point has followed KI's lead into a smoke-free entire park, with the only designated smoking area being "outside the main gate." That would suck if you're in the back half of the park. Eeesh...good thing I'm in the process of quitting.

So, I think we are going to try and go for a couple days in late July. We have platinum passes but I have no problem booking at the Breakers. Not sure though which nights to book. If we want to go to the park on a Thursday/Friday do we book for Thursday and Friday night or Wed and Thurs night? Will probably give them a call to clarify. Or just book three nights and be safe.

Nice! Thanks. That's helpful because we will be coming from KI so I can decide if I would rather drive late after the day at KI or wait until early the next morning, which would save me a night at the Breakers.

I'd stay somewhere cheap a couple hours from KI. Finish up the drive the next morning. I wouldn't want to pay Breakers price and get there so late.

 

Haha Breakers is a "couple of hours from KI."

Well for just a 3 hour or so drive I would either drive on in or just stay at our hotel at KI, wouldn't be worth it to me to drive part way on such a short drive. I know it seems a little silly to get to CP at 10:30 at night but we would be settled and can sleep in the next morning, versus just sitting around a generic hotel room after we are done at KI. I mean I've done HW in one day before and that's 6 hours round trip.

With Kings Island reportedly opening up second reservations to passholders on Monday, it’ll be interesting to see if Cedar Point will allow people to reserve two days at a time. While CP has a ton of passholders, it’s also more of a destination park, so I’d love to have the option.
