Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 2017: Top Thrill Dragster RETIRED!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

If the GATEKEEPER is going that fast, then all I can say is to make sure all your lost articles are kept in a zipped-up pocket lest you to want to make a contribution to the groundkeeper's fund.

 

I'm not perfect; I just love to ride!!!

^I can assure you they have put their most experienced ride ops at the ride. I know most of them personally and most of them have worked at Raptor or Magnum. They know how to move fast. Cedar Point, unlike certain other parks, prides itself on operations. You will not be disappointed. Expect an average of around 1100-1200 riders per hour.

This is exactly what I was thinking as well.

 

Another thing you have to keep in mind if you are going to the media day, is that these events are for the MEDIA! While the enthusiasts are there to help "fill trains" you can probably expect that the park will have anywhere between 4 to 8 members of the media riding on just about every train, and those people will get priority over the enthusiast guests.

 

There will also be camera rigs, so it's quite possible that some seats, like the front of the train, won't be available at all, or at least for a good majority of the day.

 

So I would go in and expect to ride, probably a few times, but you'll also need PATIENCE as you might end up waiting longer due to camera set ups, media that needs to wait for a specific time and/or shot, etc...

Exactly why I love Cedar Point.

 

Also, It's fun going to Louie's after and partying with them too!

I will be taking a side entrance most of the time, but will make sure to go through the front gate at least once to see Gatekeeper.

 

It will be released Monday, I am guessing that they were waiting for the "Hard" wheels to be put on to make sure it was recorded at top speed and sound.

This must be the best entrance to a park ever! I'll admit, I thought the gaps and that weird support at the back would ruin it, but you don't notice them at all

Impatiently waiting for the POV, thoughts when that thing is going to come out?

 

No clue but I am right there with you. With my luck probably 2PM, I have an hour long conference call then!

Please forgive me because I have never been to CP and this has probably been asked a million times...

 

Is two full days from 10 AM to 12 midnight enough time for this park including the water park and challenge park? I will be buying the Fast Lane at least one of the days.
