Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

With such a large crowd, I wonder how fun it was to stand in a two hour wait for something as exciting as their log flume. Yet, we complain about 30 minute FL+ waits for incredible coasters.

Personally, I'd love to go back to a world without cell phones and with pre-social media Internet.  Seemed like a much more carefree time.

Leading up to COVID closures, we'd started leaving our phones in the car during some park visits, or portions of visits. Since I have a tendency to post a few drunken snaps, it completely took that off of my mind. It's also nicer to have less to carry around.

I wanted to leave the phone in the car for the last half of our KI visit, but Emily wanted me to keep it on me in case something happened to our daughter, who was staying with family.

Not having your phone as a distraction helps you focus on experiencing the now, instead of capturing it on video.

That's actually one of the really nice things about a cellular Apple Watch (or whichever flavor of Android smart watch). You don't have to have your phone with you but you can still send and receive calls and texts. And it's easy to keep conversations brief ("Sorry I can't really talk, I'm on my watch..."). Plus you don't have to deal with loose article policies.

^ so why does the train in the pic for Iron Dragon have "XLR-8" on the front.

that's what the suspended at Astroworld was called.... did CP have that too?  or just a wrong pic in the video?

Wrong picture.  Iron Dragon has always been Iron Dragon.  I'm honestly surprised that was the only non-CP image in the video; local news stations are notorious for getting things wrong about amusement parks.

There’s literally all day for it to open up. Don’t give up hope. 

Normally id say the same but theres 0 activity around it and the trains are on the transfer tracks. Someone on Twitter said hes been here for 2 days and its been down for both. Rumors the catch car broke 🤷‍♂️

rooting for it (and GK) to open today for y'all.

 

tho I haven't seen MaxAir cycle once all morning either. . . but everything else at the front of the park seems to be up.

MaxAir was closed all day when I visited last month.  TTD was closed in the morning but opened around noon-1pm, so I would just keep a watch on it.  If you see it cycling, head over and get in line.

So... what's up with Maxair? Has the excessive downtime just been a thing these last couple of years? Or has this been the deal for a while now? It seems like it was always running back in the 2005 - 2010 era with no problems. Does Delirium at KI have similar issues? I actually got to ride MaxAir my last visit (May 2019) but it was closed both days I was there in May 2018 and I wondered why at the time. I wonder what the shelf life is on these things...

I’m at the park this week for 4nights I haven’t seen Max Air open at all or Top Thrill Dragster running? Weather. Rain first two days. Wednesday this week I saw that Gate Keeper was running test cycles I’m hoping maybe it might be open this Thursday? How many test cycles does Gate Keeper need to re open?

Thursday my last night then I’m driving down to Carowinds on Friday morning 4nights and also going to Six Flags Georgia and Holiday World Splashin Safari.

Hi I'm looking to check the situation in US before I pull the plug on my trip to CP from England UK. 

We are booked at breakers with fast pass for labor weekend and with rising UK cases and a ban on entry to the USA it looks increasingly unlikely that we will be able to get into the country. 

I'm going to try my best to get a refund of sorts but not holding my breath. Before I do cancel I just wanted to see what the current vibe is from the US side re international travel?

We are now able to visit the US without quarantine but is there any talk or sign of travel opening up by 25th August on your side yet for vaccinated travellers etc?
