Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

If you plan well, you can wait less for them. For example, swing by Millennium at maybe lunch time or dinner time, when everyone else is eating. The line could possibly go as far down as 15 or 30 minutes.

 

I'm thinking about getting the platinum pass and swinging by before the park opens. I'd guess it was like, 30 minutes maximum.

^ I find that when I park in the back and enter through the water park gate at 9am, we can get on either Maverick OR MF once or twice, then go to Raptor and usually get over to WT just before 10. Then on to Magnum and Gemini with little or no wait.

However everyone wants does it, I still wish Cedar Point ERT was like Kings Island ERT. Diamondback never has more than a three or four train wait. Imagine if Millennium Force and Maverick were like that everyday. Unfortunatly that will never happen .

The weird thing about ERT at CP is that you can "buy" it. Some of the ticket packages have the option of adding it - plus I think that the resort guests get it too. In fact when I was working in CP admissions there were several days when there was larger number of people at the ERT opening than there were for standard park opening!

Sorry if this was already mentioned. But my mom and I were considering going to Cedar Point later this summer. Unfortunately, we are both bigger girls and we read that the seatbelts were shortened on several big rides we would have wanted to go on.

 

So, I'm asking two things here. One, have the seatbelts truly been shortened? And two, have any other big TPR people had issues with Cedar Point this summer?

^ Resort Guests get in for ERT free. Nobody stays at KI's inn, and I don't even think you get the Early Entry with staying at Kings Island Inn anyway. CP is much more of a place you go and stay at the resorts...

 

At KD last year there wasn't any early entry from staying on site as far as I could tell. The only perk is the free shuttle to and from the park.

Just a side note, I will be at the park Monday the 14th with a friend (who happens to be a TPR lurker). I was hoping STR would be open by then but oh well, I'll try to get some pictures and see whats up. If anyone has anything they would like me to check out just let me know

^ A couple raindrops will usually scare people away, so don't take that the wrong way. Also, some tips for getting the credits:

 

- If you're staying on site, take advantage of ERT! Millennium Force (FS) and Maverick will usually have long lines the whole day, so hit those up during early ERT.

 

- When the park opens, go to TTD or Disaster Transport. TTD might be your longest line of the day otherwise, and Disaster Transport really picks up as the day goes on. From Disaster Transport: Wicked Twister to Corkscrew (FS). From TTD: Corkscrew.

 

-After that, go from Magnum (BS) to Mean Streak (FS). Most of the coasters in the back will usually be walk-on. So far, you probably have Millie, Maverick, TTD, Corkscrew, Magnum, Gemini (FS), Jr. Gemini*, Woodstock's Express*, CCMR*, and Mean Streak. That's 10 of 17 already! Go hit some flats (or eat) to celebrate.

 

-Now go back towards Millennium Force. Is STR open? Probably not. Ride Mantits (FS) instead, then Iron Dragon, then Wildcat*. Now you most likely have some more free time (around 3-4 PM).

 

-Lines really die down at dinnertime, and Raptor is usually 15 minutes around then. After that, go to Blue Streak (BS), which is a walk-on. Now it's time to wrap it up, and you may have a couple credits left. Try to get in line for them at least 30 minutes before closing.

 

Hope this helps! More info here: http://www.thepointol.com/ (look under travel, then strategy guides).

 

KEY: (BS) means sit near the back, (FS) = near the front, * means skippable credit.

^^ I keep reading around 40% chance of rain all day. In my mind thats almost perfect, cause with that threat a lot of people are gonna stay home.

 

^He has some pretty good tips in there also. And if you happen to see me say hi! I unfortunately dont have a TPR shirt (just a sweatshirt and idk that I'll be wearing it all day) but I'll be wearing a Yellow "Team RUSH" shirt and walking around with a blonde.

Just like to say, I've never had a front seat ride on Millennium Force or Top Thrill Dragster until this year...

 

And I'm mad at myself for not riding in the front seats before! Dragster's wait for the front was abut 25 minutes, and Millennium's was about 15 (both were full). You've got to try the front on those two rides! Millennium was a whole new ride in my mind, coming from usually riding in the back and the middle. I'm going to wait for the front each time I visit!

 

I think CP is a front seat ride park. Maverick, Dragster, Raptor, Mantis, Millennium, Wicked Twister, Mean Streak, are all front seat rides in my opinion. Backseats would be Millennium as well, Magnum, Gemini, Blue Streak, and Corkscrew.
