Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Just got on Millennium Force in 15 minutes with Fast Lane. At least a 90 minute wait. Even Blue Streak had a 1 hour posted wait time and we walked straight into the loading station.

 

 

I'm hoping this is because of the crowds on opening day, and not because fast lane is making the GP's wait ridiculous.

 

Disaster Transport has an hour line and is not on Fast Lane. The park is just very crowded today. They have honestly done a great job with merging the lines.

 

Very odd about Woodstock. Perhaps just try back later if there's a different operator. Unless they've changed the rule in the park map, you could use that to show them that it's different from Jr. Gemini.

 

The park map does not list Woodstock Express as ride with kid only. I am going with it being opening day and the ride op didn't know any better.

It was busy, but it didn't help that until around 1pm Millie wasn't up yet, Dragster ran intermittently most of the day, Maverick went down after 3/4pm, Wicked Twister wasn't running, MaxAir went down right before I left, and I saw Cedar Creek Mine Ride get evacuated when in line for Skyhawk. It was crazy. There were also quite a few school groups today for competitions and events which cause problems.

 

Most of the rides I don't have issues with the FastLane for. One I do have gripes against is TTD, as there the capacity is split: FastLane gets the first trail to themselves, second train for standby. This seems highly skewed. Other than that most of the merge points were right before the turnstile into the ride (except for Millie) and I had very little issue with it.

 

Luminosity is going to be interesting. It seems to be CP's response to GlowFest/elecTRONica/Mad T Party. I don't know how much information/pictures have gotten out, but here's a general idea of what's going down.

 

There has been lots of pavement work in the Iron Dragon Midway. There is now a large stage to the right of the entrance of Iron Dragon that will be the main performance area. There are a few levels along with large scaffolding (three stories) behind it for dancing/lighting. Lots of LED lights of various kinds; they were setting up several LED screens today too. There are about four, large cylindrical dance platforms about 4' tall in the midway along with some new swoopy pavement. In addition there is a new bar (or new to me) near the main midway. The lighting/speaker set ups even go into the main midway nearly up to Cedar Downs. This looks to be a major event and offering this year, I can't wait to see what the final product looks like!

With the wait times that you have posted, this has got to be the busiest opening day that I have seen.

 

Kind of glad I didnt make my annual trek there like I usually have for so many years. Typically though, it has been most opening days arent this gorgeous from a weather standpoint either. Usually its much colder or just more miserable.

Update on the Woodstock Express issue from earlier today: different ride op than before let us on the ride without a kid and they were actually loading the entire train. So. I guess the girl from this morning thought she was working Gemini Jr. No clue.

This is great news! Sounds like CP is handling the fastlane passes the right way.

I had a question about the FastLane. If you get it, do they assign you a row like Six flags does? Also, does it take you to the station entrance or station exit. My mom and dad are thinking about getting it when we go this summer and wanted to know cause we don't want to have assigned seating.

The closest example is Disney. There are merge points before the turnstiles into the rides. It varies, Raptor is halfway up the stairs, Millie is inside the station, TTD gets their own train, etc. It really just depends on the station layout. No one gets 'rows' and no one gets to enter through the exit.

Thanks a lot!

Could someone please explain the TTD FL issue in more detail? Sorrry, I'm just not really grasping the details ?_?

 

Okay, you know how they load two trains at a time?? The Fast Lane line enters at the front of the station and loads in the front train. The stand-by line loads into the back train. Make sense?

 

Crowds are almost non-existant today. Everything is a walk-on except for MF, TTD, and Maverick which have like 30 minute lines. Such a contrast to yesterday!

If they don't have enough FL people do they let the regular guests cross over to the other side? If not then TTD is going to lose a lot of capacity.

^ That side of the station is still accessible from the regular line.

 

 

I, too can attest that Fast Lane is a great addition. It was awesome skipping the two-hour line for MF yesterday...multiple times! I got to do everything I wanted, plus multiples of most rides, on a crowded day. They are definitely worth every penny.

 

 

I have my fast lanes already, but im just wondering how many they give out per day?

 

I bought mine at the merchandise store across from TTD, I think it is called "Extreme Coaster Gear," or something of that nature, and the girl pulled out a sheet from under the register drawer with a bunch of the wristbands attached to each other. About half were already missing, so maybe they only give them one or two sheets at the start of the day, and once they're gone, they're gone? I don't know, but I would say that if you ever get turned down at one place to definitely try another store, as there are many places that sell them in the park. There are even stores in Frontiertown which sell them that I would assume move them slower than stores on main midways.

With the way KD does it some of the coasters simply used the disable guest entrance alongside the main queue....windseeker has it's own seperate FL entrance though.

No, they just keep sending empty trains as a SCREW YOU to the people who didn't buy Fast Lane...

 

YES OF COURSE THEY LOAD THOSE TRAINS!!!!!!

Anyone have information on the factors that play into the cost of FastLane, and if there is a way to predict how much it'll cost? I'm interested in buying it next time I go, but I want to go knowing that'll it cost $xxx and not be surprised when it turns out to cost twice as much.

-$50 for one person

-$45 for two people (each, total of $90)

-$40 for three people ($120)

I don't think the prices will fluctuate.

I've referenced some pics from another fan-site of CP, and have came up with a "basic" map of all the new markings.

 

btw, there were ALLOT more markings around space spiral/disaster eateries(particularly around the tables).

"break open the bubbly, its time to tear down the warehouse!"

 

*the marking in-front of the games area(upper right) isn't exact, IDK which side of the games area it was on*
