Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Got our reservations booked at Camper Village for this weekend!

 

Will have to head home Sunday so not sure how much CFK we'll be able to check out (and unofficial park Gay Day), but we may pop in for a few hours before heading home.

 

Supposed to be close to 85 on Saturday so we'll probably end up spending most of the day at the swim-up bar and in the Lazy River at Soak City. Might not spring for Fast Lane this trip being that we won't be spending a lot of time in the park. Will try to hit up most of the major coasters Friday night and maybe for early entry Sunday. Otherwise, we'll probably skip the park for most of Saturday because it's sure to be crowded.

Check out this amazing photo compliments of Dave Morgan!! 

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

To me, it's not even so much that they changed the schedule. It happens, whatever. But I called Hotel Breakers literally 8 days ago because the website said there were no rooms available and said to c

I think hotel breakers is fine. They have that hibachi grill downstairs, TGIFridays and that breakfast place, convenience store and the rooms are not bad at all. Plus, you're at Cedar Point, how much time will you really be spending in your room anyway?

Two things...

 

1. That Windseeker accident sounds scary. Are they all closed right now? Or just the one at CP?

 

2. Please, Hotel Breakers the worst hotel ever? No. You're exaggerating and being dumb. It's not up to the quality for what you pay, but you're paying for location location location! I can't imagine going to CP and not staying there just for the convenience factor!

Exactly. Not having to deal with causeway traffic either in the morning or at night would be worth it by itself, even without early entry. I've never stayed there myself, honestly probably never will since I know enough people and have family within an hour that I can stay with, but the convenience factor of Breakers is off the charts.

I am going to the park this weekend and I am staying at Castaway Bay primarily because of the convenience and the waterpark. Is the traffic on the causeway really that terrible? We are going to the park on Saturday and Sunday. Also, how does the early entry to the park work?

They're starting to do things to update Breakers from "sub-Super 8" category to at least "current Super 8" level comfort when it comes to the rooms. Long, long way to go though and it might very well be home to the worst park owned "official" hotel rooms in the amusement industry. I can't think of worse.

^The Best Western Kings Quarters is the official hotel of KD even though I don't think KD owns it. That being said, I think the Breakers is better than that hotel in every aspect.

 

I loved my stay at the Breakers because it was so convenient. I've never left a park mid-afternoon for a nap just because it woud have been inconvenient. I love that you can come and go as you please, and it really makes a vacation much more enjoyable and relaxing!

I stayed at the cheapest room at Breakers and had a great time. I took my own bedding and some ozium but it was really cool to stay right inside Cedar Point. I will be going later in the year and will request the tower but would gladly stay in Bon Aire. I am looking forward to camping there sometime as well.

If you go for the early entry, the causeway might not be too bad if you head in around 8:30 AM. Go between 9:30-11:00 though and it's going to be quite crowded.

 

If you leave to go to lunch in the afternoon it shouldn't be too bad, but leaving when the park closes can get pretty bad. You're better off leaving about an hour early or staying and hanging out until the traffic dies down when the park closes. Actually considering the fact that it is a causeway, I think that CP does a very good job of getting the traffic in and out efficiently.

 

I always stay at Breakers or Camper Village so I can't comment on how the early entry works at Castaway Bay, but would assume it's the same as all the other resorts. They give you a receipt that gives you the early entry with ticket purchase (which you can buy there). You get one hour of ERT on whatever rides they decide to open. Usually, it's Millenium Force, Maverick, Raptor, Iron Dragon, Kiddieland, Max Air (or Skyhawk) but they may change things around from time to time.

 

Have fun...I'll be there too! Supposed to be in the mid-eighties this weekend so you will probably see me and my clan at the swim-up bar at Soak City on Saturday!

Awesome! I was disappointed when the Funcam one went down, now a new live one is up again!

 

Is it just me or does anyone else find the live webcam freezing up after a few minutes? I find that frustrating considering I'm on FIOS as my ISP but it could be that I'm viewing it from my laptop rather than my desktop who knows?

^Glad to hear it, but you might want to wait at least a few more years before you go back to CP, just to make sure they've definitely fixed that webcam.

The one at Cedar Point opened up either yesterday or the day before.

I am from Texas so mid-eighties is no where near bad weather. It's rather nice actually. Anyway, does anyone have any information about Castaway Bay? Has anyone stayed there? Anyone have any general tips for my first trip to Cedar Point? I am going from Saturday evening until Monday night

Good to hear they got it fixed & re-opened.

I stayed at Castaway Bay a few years back during the winter and they have a nice little indoor water park. I am not sure if you are wanting to attend that at some point in your trip (like evenings) or not. I prefer the indoor water park at Kalahari over it though if you are also looking for including that in your trip. I would also recommend Breakers first if you are looking for convenience to The Point. Followed by Light House Point and then Sandcastle Suites.

 

Anyways, here is a link to the room details for each of Castaway Bays room types. This may help you decide your needs for your trip from the layouts. Hope this helps.
