Interesting. Thanks (all) for the info.

I guess the reason I am hesitant about renting a car is because it will end up sitting in a parking lot for 2 days while I stay onsite. That just seems like throwing away money when I can just pay for a single ride to and from the airport. But that makes sense that getting back to CLE from CP is more difficult than the other way around. I guess renting a car has its advantages too, like being in control of your schedule and when you leave. I'll have to do some browsing. Perhaps I will wait until next summer when I can take a whole week off and lump it with other parks to make renting a car more worthwhile.

Thanks guys.

There’s also an insane rental car shortage right now and prices are through the stratosphere in a lot of markets so factor that in too. Lol

https://www.uber.com/global/en/price-estimate/

know this just an estimate but plugging it now I was surprised that the prices were only around $70 each way for an uber. With it being that cheap I would just go with an uber at that point. The under 25 fee each day alone is basically the cost of 1 of the trips. You can always schedule a pickup time in advance with uber as well on the way back to Cleveland. Definitely cheaper than a rental car.

Uber indeed is more affordable than renting a car, as I figured. I would just hate to have a difficult time finding an Uber from Sandusky back to CLE and potentially miss a flight. Does scheduling in advance guarantee a ride? I'm very new to using Uber.

You better check if you can do advance schedule with Uber in Sandusky. It is NOT available in all markets. Last time I checked Orlando had it but not for me at home in STL. I also vote to do the rental, at least Breakers let's you park for free.

^Oh, that is good to know! Thank you.

I guess it's a matter of cost vs. convenience, like most trip planning. I would already be staying at Breakers so it's not like this is a cheap/discount vacation to begin with. Guess I have some deciding to do. I probably wouldn't regret getting a rental car, but I could see myself regretting relying on Uber. I appreciate all the info everyone.

Sounds like you got this figured out.

Yep. Just booked Breakers and flights. I'm gonna shop around for the cheapest rental car but I've decided that's the best (and most reliable) option, despite being $$$$.

Thank you all for the advice. I'm excited to finally come back and ride SV. Hopefully the park's operations and staffing are tolerable the last weekend in August. It's before Labor Day so I should expect most things to be open, right? lol

Steel Vengeance is insane. RMC pulled out so many stops for that thing. It really is New Texas Giant but on unnecessarily copious amounts of crack.

Got a once-in-a-lifetime front row Millennium Force ride on Saturday night. Some idiot kids kept on delaying the ride by messing with the gate, so a normal dusk ride became a pitch black, post-park-closing ride. Lake Erie transforms into the abyss. During the first overbank, we saw lightning in the distance, so me and my buddy ended up getting the last front row ride of the night. 

On a regular ride, Millennium Force has mystical healing properties for the heart and soul. During a night ride like that, it transcends that and brings you to another plane of existence where worries don’t exist. Just euphoria, ecstasy, and Lake Erie air blasting you in the face at 100mph in the dark.

I haven’t had the energy to update my dumb coaster enthusiast bs ranking spreadsheet since then but there is absolutely no way that any other ride could provide that experience. MF #1, GOATed. What else can I say? I love going fast.

Even if I didn't had that special experience, Millennium Force is and will ever be the one coaster I'll be always thinking of if I try to rank, compare or define any coaster I am riding. It is just pure pleasure to me. We had four nights at Cedar Point in July 2017 and ended every day with binge riding Millennium Force. It's just such a wholesome feeling the darker it gets. I haven't had a comparable coaster experience yet. I rode better coasters. I rode more intense coasters. I rode faster coasters. I rode higher coasters. I rode steeper coasters. But no one gave me this complete, heart soothing enduring experience you have from entering the station to leaving it after a couple of laps while using the magic gate.

The week of August 9th seems like a good week to visit. Last week of 10pm hours and Fast Lane dips to *only* $100. Maverick was down my entire last visit so hoping for better luck this time!

My husband and I are thinking of doing platinum passes for 2022 but we already have Gold Passes for Kings Island this year.  Do we want to upgrade them when next year's season passes go on sale (usually in August is the normal)? If we upgrade to Platinum should we be able to go to Cedar Point for Haunt this year?? I'm thinking we'd have to get them processed up there?? 

Thanks!

I wonder if this happens more often than you realize if you're not checking the FT+ pricing regularly. When we went to Carowinds earlier this year about a month before our trip FL+ was around $70~ then a few weeks later it went up to like $100~.

Shit. They increased the FP price. Now $200 on weekends up from $160? Weekdays went up too about $30. Idk if that's enough to deter people and make FL more enjoyable. 

I'm showing $225.

If it cuts more people out of the FLP lane, I'm all for it. I wonder if they're finally realizing the people who paid money for FLP are bitching about waiting 45 minutes to ride.

I believe with platinum pass I can get FL+ for FL price in park. Is that still a thing? I'm going during the week for a few doys so don't mind waiting 20 minutes a ride but will definitely buy day of if it's needed.

One of the inside jokes my buddies and I made constantly all weekend was how MF is a magical drug, so not far off… 🤩
