Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

p. 2030 - Top Thrill 2 announced!

Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

Trip report coming maybe, but I had an awesome time at CP the weekend of the 3rd and 4th, with my super-expensive-but-totally-worth-it all-season Platinum Fast Lane+.   Those without were having a less good time on Saturday - waits of 60 minutes plus for things like Iron Dragon and Corkscrew, 2 hours for Valravn, Raptor, Maverick, etc.  Saturday, Maverick was running, as was every other adult coaster and Power Tower.  Sunday was rainy so I didn't stick around all day but if the weather cleared was probably better.

I had to have one of my cats put down on Wednesday, so I'm still in kinda a mood about that, but good to have the forum back.

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 timers and seasonal workers went out to help each weekend. Some have stayed out there since the end of September, other drive back and forth each weekend. Only did the park though on the 17th. The weather was absolutely gorgeous all day, clear sky's, very comfortable temperature. It was a great day to be at the park. Attendance wise, the park seemed pretty packed. Most coasters had between an hour to hour and half wait all day. Steel Vengeance did run out of access passes by 4pm. No worries to me though, I didn't ride any of the coasters. Just walked around the park, did their trick or treat fall fest event and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the park. The park is as always, beautifully decorated and well maintained. Who ever their pumpkin supplier is, I bet they are one happy person with the amount of pumpkins that are at the park. 


The trick or treat fall fest event was pretty awesome. You get a card that can be used at 6 tasting locations around the park. 



The tasting card and all the areas that had food tasting. They also had, for an extra charge, specialty brews and booze bars. 

I didn't get photos for all the food that I did try, but I will still mention them.  

The first stop was Hugos Italian Kitchen where I tried the "Death Dog." The Death Dog was a hot dog topped with fresh jalapenos, shredded pepper jack cheese and five-alarm chili. It was good, but honestly, wasn't that hot.


Next, we made our way back to Wagon Wheel Pizza where I ordered the "Fire Toasted Dessert Pizza." A dessert pizza topped with chocolate chips and marshmallow fluff, oven-toasted with drizzled raspberry sauce. This was amazing. I can't even think of words to describe it. 



This location was not listed on the places to go. When talking to the associate, she said this is something new they are testing for next year, and it was only available that weekend. You had the opinions of picking 1 from pulled pork, smoked ham, brisket, and Nashville hot chicken. Then you picked 1 from beans, rice or corn bread. Everything was topped off by coleslaw and pickles and barbeque sauce made inhouse. My sister and dad tried this, and it smelt amazing. Tony, if you read this, spread the word that this is a must for next year!





Lastly, we ended the night by getting "Pumpkin Spiced Funnel Cake" and "Frankenstein's Fires." Pumpkin Spices Funnel Cake a a fresh deep fried funnel cake infused with pumpkin spices and topped with cream cheese frosting.


Frankenstein's Fries are fresh cut fries topped with cheddar cheese, pulled pork, and candied bacon. 


This event was pretty cool. I definitely think this is something that the park should do every year in the fall. It is an event that can be geared towards adults and older people that might not want to do haunt. 




Great stay at Hotel Breakers. Love the fall decorations. 


Love a room with a great view!!






Loved all the pumpkin decorations around the park. Nice little touches with wagons and other fall décor. 




Millennium Force from the train!


 Blue sky's over Gatekeeper.





Ended the night by taking the boardwalk from the parking lot back to Breakers. 




Such a great location!


All in all, it was a great day at the park, and overall great 2 night stay at Breakers.

Absolutely love that shot of Windseeker at night!

Tasting event looks fun, I've always like their brew and bbq, etc. offerings and agree they should do it every year.

As much as I love the atmosphere I couldn't imagine going to CP and not do any rides. To each their own! I can also understand not wanting to wait in those lines I've read about... wowzas.

Thanks for sharing!

I can confirm, Corkscrew is the only coaster open with a nice 2 hour wait with one train operation for those that are worried their missing out on this epic last day of the year. The wind restrictions here are nuts, I expected a few rides, not all of them to close, haha.

I mean, Pipe Scream is just a Disk'o'Coaster, and it runs on a powered track. Why close it? Most Zamperla rides have a standard 30 mph wind limitation but that one is not even that tall...

If Cedar Point had even the same rain/wind policy as the other Ohio CF park, let alone just about any other park in the nation, they’d be the best park in the country bar none.  It as it stands, I’d never even consider going here if there was any sort of wind or rain in the forecast.

If it makes you feel better, the B&Ms at Kings Island closed mid-day due to temperature and didn't reopen.  Beast was posting a 3 hour wait on the app.
