^True as that may be, calling it in or getting on the website is not as FuN, not to mention those awesome coupons would end up going to the recycling bin because this Texas girl is nowhere near Ohio...

I'm headed to CP this tuesday, but I havent gone to the park since I became an avid enthusiast. So you guys, with your wealth of knowledge, have any tips for riding? Like which seat of which car, stuff like that. And any other CP tips are cool too!

 

Thanks

Coastermania Trip Report:

 

Extraordinary event especially for the price $0.00 for anyone with a coasterclub id (TPR), and a day pass or season pass. No upcharges!

 

Breaking Wind (aka: Windseeker) still not close to opening any time soon. Work was being done on it all day Friday and Saturday. I did see it complete cycle twice on Saturday at around 7PM. It really is a beautiful ride at night. No work today on Sunday as it's a day of rest I guess.

 

Friday evenings "social hour" was superb. The food was great free drinks and you could buy a beer for less than $4. That beer price was barely more than they charge for a Pepsi at the vending machines at the park . Did I say this was all free except for the booze??? They had 2 kinds of wings, meatballs, and something else I can't remember right now. Oh yea, baked potatoes with the fixins, veggies and fruit too.

 

After the social hour they had a "love fest" for "Big Dick" Kinzel. Of course I didn't participate, but was there. The man has truly done a lot for the park and the Cedar Fair name, but his time has long since past several years ago. Someone asked a question of him regarding bigger woodies. His response was (which I couldn't believe), with the current state of the art the tallest woodie that can be built and maintained was 80 feet! Many people said what about El Toro (of course I was wearing my E.T. shirt), but he just ignored them and moved on. Talk about being out of touch! The film festival was hilarious. You had to be there. If you were, you know what I'm talking about.

 

Friday night's ERT's were super, running as usual well past midnight (closer to 1am). I left at 12:20 since I was to be back on Saturday at 5:30 for the morning ERT. God knows I need my beauty sleep!

 

Saturday we had early morning ERT and evening ERT (which I didn't attend thanks to all the bugs - muckelheads and May flies). I wish there was a way to control them, but they do taste like chicken. Saturday's free lunch had hot dogs, ziti pasta, potato salad, and Hawaiian chicken. My only disappointment was no Toft's ice cream cups. That's been a tradition over the years.

 

I had a great time at the park for the weekend Friday -- today Sunday getting 116 rides in! Just a great time, and next year there will be no "Big Dick." That's worth looking forward to...

I give it a week before the general public claims a test rider fell out and died.

 

I have been telling a joke to my friends and family, that the reason it is located right next to the beach is because when the people fall out they would just land in the water.

At least that would be a nice soft (but cold) landing.

Wildcat crashes in station - no serious injuries....

 

http://www.sanduskyregister.com/sandusky/news/2011/jun/06/wildcat-crash-injures-seven-cp-visitors

 

Seven people suffered bumps and bruises, but no serious injuries after a Sunday night incident on Cedar Point's WildCat ride, a spokesman said Monday.

 

Four people were treated at the first aid station and another three were taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center as a precautionary measure. There they were treated and released, said park spokesman Robin Innes.

 

Cedar Point is investigating why one of the coaster cars ran into another car that had stopped at the station.

 

The ride has been shut down until Cedar Point can make sure it is safe again, he said, adding that inspectors from the state Department of Agriculture have been notified of the incident. That department oversees amusement park rides and ride safety.

Jeez! Again?? This is the second time since 2008 that this has happened. Granted, in 2008, the anti-rollbacks failed and a car rolled back down the lift hill into the station, which is a little different than this incident. Just taer it down and put in a used roller skater there!

 

(yes, I know Woodstock is a big roller skater)

Sacrilige! Sacrilige!

 

It might be a Wildcat... but it's still an Anton Schwarzkopf gem. Tearing one down is worthy, in my humble opinion, of execution at the hands of 100 screaming babies with colic and gas.

Damn... we're going to CP this month in our Barcelona - USA trip. Last year happened the same to us with Expedition Ge Force. But everyone is fine and is not a major ride. It's something...

They should just replace Wildcat with one of these:

 

 

 

 

It's a coaster type the park doesn't have. It would be higher capacity than Wildcat. And it would give them TWO credits!

As long as they run it Hersheypark-style! But if Dorneypark's Wild Mouse is any indication, it will be a crappy ride.
