^^Keep in mind that some days are already full and there are plenty of people waiting and hoping for spots to open up.

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

People have been mad that the parks didn't open when it should of. Parks open and they find something that will not change your day and all and complain about it. I just learned that some people will complain about anything. You could give them a free locker and would complain that the locker is free.

 

truthfully the $2 is worth the peace of mind. I hate having anything in my pockets I am worried the whole ride that something might come out. Rather enjoy the ride and give the park a few bucks. Also this year that 2 dollars might mean more to the park than me.

 

The ride lines closing early is interesting, I was at Kings Island Sunday and got in line right about closing with no issues. With that said the line was about a 4 train wait.

That's why I want to cancel. I just wish they'd make it as easy to cancel as it is to sign up.

 

 

edit: I called and got bounced around to a few different people and then put on hold. I gave up and moved my reservation out as far as I could, hoping there is a better system for cancellation in place before then.

 

Also, the 'contact us' link on the website said, "Give us a call or send a note..." Couldn't find a number. I had to google to get the guest services phone number.

So okay... if you want to think that way then Steel Vengeance is a "$2 upcharge" and every other ride plus admission is free all year. You can't even get that kind of a deal at Knoebels.

Great point! I'll go with this perspective from now on. CF really is providing pass holders with great value, (nearly) two seasons for the price of one.

Millennium Force isn't going to have a 4 train wait though. Especially not now. If it did, they wouldn't close it early that day.

 

This all makes sense since the park needs to try to salvage something of this season financially and they have no staff, so they probably don't feel like paying people overtime or needing more than one shift.

Did the overtime laws change in Ohio for seasonal amusement venues this year? I'm guessing paying overtime still isn't a thing at the park... but besides the point (ha), I get what you're saying.

 

Based on early reviews of the park on day #1 it sounds like a shitshow. Return passes (wannabe freeway) for the big 3 that were still open but still several hour waits with a return time. Yikes.

 

bRiNg It BaCk!!!!

I think this is the year to cut parks a bit of slack.

Or just cut parks all together.

So, KI is now selling FP+ (no regular FP, just +) Just bought some online. Wonder if CP will do the same? Since we will be at CP for two days I am probably more likely to wait until we get there and scope it out. Will keep my eye on it.

^^Cedar Point is a bit of an operational show show right now with half the rides closed and 1-3 hour lines even after handing out “boarding passes” for Steel Vengeance, Millennium, and Maverick. Even ADA lines were backed up down the respective staircases of each coaster. Kings Island seems to be off to a much smoother start so it makes sense that they would reimplement Fast Lane Plus, but I definitely don’t see that working at Cedar Point any time soon.

 

With that being said, my friends and I still had a wonderful time at the park today despite high temps, long lines, and lots of closures. It’s simply a special place to be (with some truly kickass coasters) and I’m just glad I got the chance to visit while I’m on this side of the country.

 

On a negative note, they’ve demolished the trees around Red Garter Saloon and Panda Express and it has absolutely ruined the area. Does anyone know when this happened and/or why?

Only coasters closed were TTD, Rougarou, Gemini, Blues Streak, and Corkscrew day 1.

 

Thanks from Tony last night indicates Fast Lane problems should be solved now and work as normal if you have one.

Other major closures include Wicked Twister, Maxair, and Snake River Falls. Along with most other flats.

Why does everyone always call out Kings Island for the B&M rattle? Gatekeeper and Valraven rattle worse than any of the rides at Kings Island.

I have not been on Valravn but Gatekeeper does have a worse rattle than diamondback and banshee, I agree. But they all have some.

Do you think the rattle is a manufacturer issue and not a park issue, as some suggest?

So 6 coasters. Snake River Falls was expected. Interested to see if those stay closed as Im heading there Thursday. TTD is the one id like to re-open the most as it was down when I went last year.

Never had an issue with Valravn but I have always been loud about how Gatekeeper can be one or the worst coasters in the back row the way it shakes and shimmies you down further into the seat and the vest squeezes the life out of you.

 

Like Beast I only try to ride it in the front. Valravn always excellent in every row.

The trees weren't wearing their masks.

My day at CP today.

 

Had 11am reservations. Arrived at 10:30. Entered the park about 10 minutes later and went straight to SV. Got 2 passes (me and wife). Went to Maverick and we both were able to get a pair of tickets. They were asking to see people and not just handing out whatever people asked for.

 

Went straight back to MF. It was late opening. We got 2 access passes and then joined the line waiting for it to open. They said first 300 or so would be let in now, then cards start. So, we got a 'free' ride on MF to start. MF opened about 1130 I'd say.

 

After that, we hit up Backbeat. Good lunch. Went to Magnum. Line took about an hour. It was about 2:30 now so we went to MF for our 3pm access card. They let us enter the line and it took about 40 minutes. Good work at MF.

 

4pm access card for Maverick so we went back there. They let us enter when we got there about 3:30. Line was around an hour an a half.

 

Dinner at Chick Fil A. Short line.

 

6pm card for SV..showed up a few minutes early and got in line. Got off at 7:25. Ran across to Maverick and the girl let me in with my extra pair of passes from earlier in the day. Got on the next to last train.

 

I felt we got lucky to get 6 rides in today. It's better than being at home but I'm also glad this wasn't my first and only visit for awhile.

 

We'll see how they do tomorrow.

Seemed a massive expletive show today. Corkscrew did open so got that, waited in line for 20 minutes and Raptor went down. Got in Cedar Creek Mine Ride, and the open big three of MF, MAverick and Steve.

 

TTD, Wicked Twister, Rougarou and Gemini had no signs of life.

 

Tomorrow is our second and last day so I guess I clean up Raptor, Valravn, Gatekeeper, Magnum, and Iron Dragon. And maybe the bigger kiddie. Hoping Sunday is less busy than today was but Queue times seems to disagree.

Is the park that busy that the wait times are so long even with access cards? Or is it just everything running at super low capacity?
