Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

p. 2030 - Top Thrill 2 announced!

Cedar Point will now have an age limit for their employee housing.

I’m not sure how many people this will impact but it seems like the opposite of what I’d expect a notoriously-short-staffed park to do in a pandemic where they may not get any international help again.

^ Was there a huge shortage of rooms before? Were employees having to rent off-property? I guess landlords are less likely to want to rent to groups of college kids, but as someone over 30, if I was unemployed post-corona, struggling to find work, I feel like cheap housing would be a huge sell to get me to do the full operational year and could be sold on a low paying job since it'd basically just be a place for me to crash when work is done. I feel like there must be a lot of people who would be the same.

Oh dear. My last summer working at Cedar Point was the summer after my last year of college. I was 24 and felt like I was too old to be working there 😂 Employee housing is cheap, but that’s just about the only good thing about it. Seems like someone over 30 would want something a bit less college dorm-y...

I am guessing 18 year old females did not want to live close to 45 year old men lol 

So an 18 year old female should be more worried about the possibility of working with a potential 45-year-old male pervert, because they're different from potential 18-year-old male perverts? Sounds like a stereotype if I've ever heard of one.

In a lot of circumstances, it's easier for an older person with years of established credit to find someone willing to rent to them. They 'should' also be more financially established and willing to afford something outside of a dorm. This frees up space for young employees who need more financial and logistical assistance. It makes it more attractive for them.

Just noticed they updated the Cedar Point website.

Just when I got used to where all of the buttons were....I guess it's better, but right now it seems like the fonts are too big. You cannot access everything until you start scrolling down.

Anyone else?

I guess the previous version may have been counter-intuitive, but after so many years you get used to it.  Not really liking the new version, which seems designed for phone browsers first and foremost.  Call me old school but I actually like using a full-size computer (even my laptop has a 17" screen).

From nocoastercon, it sounded like they want to sell FL. It's going to be a wait and see approach like Kings Island did last year.

I think you'll see them sooner rather than later. Might not be first week or two but probably soon after.
