Don't hold back on the drama, bro. Just let it flow.

 

Moreso agreeing that its kind of silly not to put more people on the rides than expressing concern for the situation

My bad. You have to admit it's hard to tell, anymore.

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

Yeah, it was not clearly worded...poor internet sarcasm. You see stuff on TV about if you're riding a bike you leave a 30 foot cone shaped wake of you air particles... you're riding through whatever anyway, load it up.

Hey y'all,

I may be making a spontaneous trip out to CP next weekend. I have been on a weight loss journey this year (down 40 pounds so far), that was caused by walks of shame on Outlaw Run and Mr. Freeze. In the past month, I was able to make it on both of those rides. I haven't been to CP in years- does Steel Vengeance tend to be stricter than OR when it comes to the restraints? My issue with OR wasn't getting the green light, it was getting the seatbelt to buckle, which I was able to do recently. I'm also worried about MF and TTD. I'm 6'3" and around 280 pounds for reference. I don't really have a huge gut, most of my weight is in the legs (hence the issues with the seatbelts).

 

For additional reference, Batman @ SFSL is a very tight fit with my shoulders and how my butt fits in the small seat, but the ride ops have always been able to squish me in. On Wildfire @ SDC, I'm able to squish myself in well enough. The only rides I still don't think I could fit on are Superman and Fireball @ SFSL, just due to the seatbelts not closing (which is an unfortunate mix of my weight and height).

I'll give you the advice I've heard given to other people - make sure you get everything out of all of your pockets so you're not sitting on wallet/phone isn't giving extra space. CP seems to be extra tough with those seatbelts.

Depending on who checks the seat belt, just getting it to click isn't enough. They want you to pull on the loop and show it tighten at least 1".

You could do like a 24 hour fast leading into your rides and then eat right after the coasters in question if you think you are going to cut it that close. Whenever we have fasted I always feel super slim because all the bloat is gone.

That's a bit of a stretch...

Reservations required for passholders at CP starting again Oct 3.

 

Already purchased tickets and resort guests do not need to make a reservation.

What's with this reservation crap again? You can go to kings island and it's like a normal day. Everything is open there and all the rides are running and you can still get FL+ when you buy it online ahead of time.

The park has a set capacity. If they're hitting it then this is a better system than having people drive all the way there before they find out that they're not allowed in.

Woah. Take it easy, Karen.

Enough. She'd like to speak to your manager now.

MANAGER. NOW!

Cedar Point has apparently found some staff or figured out how to be more efficient from Six Flags or something:

 

The following attractions will not operate (subject to change): Antique Cars, SlingShot, Frontier Fling, Forbidden Frontier on Adventure Island, Snake River Falls, Thunder Canyon, Snoopy Bounce, maXair.

 

The only rides that are scheduled to be closed this weekend are either legitimately closed for covid, broken, upcharges, water rides or the unnecessary extra car ride.

This is good news, I wonder what the makeup of the workforce is at this time. I saw someone post on twitter that they will be fulling a dream and working at Cedar point this fall, didn't seem like the typical college student.

 

I should of worked weekends this fall just to say I did it, but would need a place to stay. Seems like a lot to have to go back to my 9-5 on Monday.

I've legitimately considered this just for the experience of doing it since parks will hire anyone with a pulse in the fall and I fit the bill but the park would have to be somewhere near us so you could reasonably commute there each day and there really isn't one that's open in the fall except parks that are total sh*t. Also it's an actual business that needs employees who are willing to be team players and do whatever is needed, not just live out some stupid thing they've wanted to try out for years because they're dorks and they could easily tell me to go stamp hands for re-entry for 16 hours.

Oh shit! Sign me up. I could wear one of those kickass wrist braces, too.

It's always been my dream to be one of those Halloween bungee people. I've been a scareactor at a local haunt, but that bungee stuff is next level awesomeness. Then again I'm sure it takes a lot of strength... and... yeah.

 

Being a ride op on the B&Ms is great! Other rides checking lapbars are not always that fun cause you gotta slouch over, and, you know... work.

 

Or you can just stamp everyone all day, like you said. lol.

Bungee jumping is such a thrill. I did it at Dorney Park's HAUNT occasionally as a Team Leader, and sessions were limited to 20-30 minutes per jumper because of how much energy it required. Totally worth the exhaustion.

I actually did work fall weekends for two years, 100 percent for the heck of it. Obviously getting paid was nice, but that wasn't even the reason I worked there. I live about 1.5 hours away and they house you for free (I'm not sure what the housing situation is now though). It was an absolute honor to be a part of one of the finest rides teams in the world and I knew they needed the help, but after the second year I just couldn't take it. Those long hours all weekend then working my regular job during the week just beat the crap out of me.
