Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Saw this floating around, A interesting read no doubt

Anyone care to touch on this or share stories? Life was never this bad at Geauga Lake or Six Flags WoA when I worked there but both had some really silly rules, And I can't speak too much on life as a grunt at geauga lake as I was of the so called "protected class" as I was a member of the police force. Although management did hate us and long shifts were common even for us.

Cedar Fair is supposedly aware of this online rant and according to the OP is losing their minds over the potential negative publicity.

It's about time Soak City got something, I'm not a huge waterpark person, but this park seriously needs something, its just fallen behind every major water park thats connected to an amusement park. I'm actually heading there today and I'll check for any signs of construction if this is true.

I'm planning a trip to Cedar Point for next year. I have a quick question. What's the earliest you can check into breakers express?

 

I'm on the website now and I can't seem to find it... or I'm missing it.

 

Any insight would be appreciated.

Whatever you do, don't stay at Breakers.

Breakers Express was 50's? I'd expect that from Breakers but I'm surprised to hear that about Breakers Express.

 

I agree about staying somewhere in Sandusky... they have a Cedar Point shuttle too so you can save money on parking and save your car from being bombarded by Seagulls all day in the CP parking lot. Ps: Don't EVER EVER EVER under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES stay at the Sandusky Travel lodge. lol

Kinda of amazing how accurate it is!

A couple years ago, after a weekend parked at Breakers my car honestly looked like someone had stood on the roof and dumped a full can of white paint on it. I had to get a car wash on the way home before giving it back to my parents.

 

Although I park there every year and that was the only time that seagulls used my car as target practice.

^^I had a similar experience with Disney World's campground except with Peacocks...this was the first time I realized peacocks could fly and were in the trees all over the campground. Needless to say somebody had a cream pie fight while we were sleeping.

 

Getting back on topic, whenever I've stayed at CP it was either in the campground or the cabins. I was a little erked to find out that no tents are allowed in the campground (at least the last time I stayed maybe 6 or 7 years ago), and the cabins were worth the money. But personally my thought process is, "How much time is really spent in the hotel?" even if it's a halfway decent place you have clean sheets and a bed to sleep on.

That's how I am too. Why pay $250 for a Cedar Point hotel (or however much it is) when a mile down the road (not even) I can stay in a $50 hotel (sometimes less). I already get early entry with my platinum pass so that's no problem. I'm not huge on the whole 'comfort' thing; as long as I have a bed to sleep in I don't mind how bad it looks.

I am one that would disagree with the statement that Soak City has "fallen behind every major water park connected to an amusement park."

 

I have been to the water parks at Carowinds, KI, KD, Dorney, Darien Lake, Fantasy Island, Wildwater Kingdom, Mt. Olympus, Lake Compounce, SFNE & Waldameer amongst others and don't believe that SC is really any worse than any of those water parks. While it might not be the best, I would say it's definitely better than Carowinds, KD's and KI's water parks (as far as CF parks go).

 

Is it worth the extra $30 when you are already there for CP? Probably not, but it's pretty nice when you have it included in a Platinum Pass!

 

Yes, they still have slides from when they originally opened, but I think they're fun & they still ride smooth, so I see no reason why they would want to replace them. I think an addition of a racing slide really isn't going to be that much of an attendance booster for them, however a water coaster like Holiday Worlds or a big Pro-Slide complex like at DL could be a different story.

 

I'm going in two weeks and the majority of our time is planned to be spent at SC (if it's hot). I know lines in the park are going to be ridiculously long so I have no problem at all staying in the campground where we can walk to SC and spend the day in the Lazy River, Wave Pool, zip down some water slides and of course....go to the swim-up bar!
