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

To put it lightly, IMO...

 

It's great reading trip reports from first timers at CP. I'm from California, and have been to CP twice in the past 10 years. Having been used to parks like SFMM, CP has a wildly different atmosphere and overall vibe. I can't wait to go back.

 

Haha yeah, I definitely agree.

 

I agree with you on nearly all ride ratings. The one rating that surprised me was Blue Streak. I was last on in 2007, and remember really enjoying it. Smooth...lots of airtime. Sounds like it's changed a lot.

 

But regarding Blue Streak, I was expecting a lot better from what I'd heard on the forum. I wasn't the only one who had bad rides on it. My dad said it was the worst coaster he'd ever been on. Now, I didn't think it was THAT bad but like I said, was pretty rough and gave me little air. That was the only disappointment I had though. The top rides at the park pretty much all exceeded my expectations (I haven't been on many good coasters haha).

I really like Blue Streak!

 

Where did you sit? I always take back row and I always get good floater on Blue Streak! Not epic but for what it is, pretty good and it's not tooo rough.

Only thing I hate is being near Raptor the line is sometimes outrageous.

I luckily had a walk-on both times. x)

 

Um, I sat in the very middle the second time and almost very back the second time. The second time through was a better ride (mainly because my dad was in front and we were watching him rattling/shaking like crazy in his seat). haha

It is wood, could've been a bad day but yeah I've always found it a fun little ride! Shame you didn't.

Depends on what seat you sit in for me. But, usually when I get on, Blue Streak steadily delivers a crazy, airtime filled ride. Dunno about you.

 

I totally agree! I'll only sit in rows 1 or 2. Always a great airtime filled ride! Maybe I should try the last row next time. Not bad for a 49 year old... I hope C.P. will do something for it's 50th birthday next year. It's my fav at the park.

^Blue Streak is the most pleasant surprise at Cedar Point. That old wooden coaster still delivers the airtime.

^ Totally depends on your budget. For convenience, I'd recommend Breakers even though its rooms are dated. However it makes up for it with the walking distance to two park entrances (one of them right by Gatekeeper). For budget-tight, there a few small hotels and motels a few minutes from the Causeway. I stayed at a Comfort Inn and it was clean, so I'd recommend that too.

I stayed at that Comfort Inn last week also and have nothing to complain about. Clean room, AC worked great, well-stocked bathrooms. I'd recommend it for anyone looking to save a few bucks so you can spend it in the park instead.

I didn't go to CP at all last year. In 2010 and 2011 I went during HalloWeekends, and for both trips Mean Streak was closed- they had some type of attraction in its place. I am about the only person around that doesn't hate Mean Streak. Does anybody have any idea if MS will be open during HW this year? I'm thinking of going for the first weekend of HW- Sept. 13-15.

Greetings friends!

 

Cedar Point is holding a contest (http://bit.ly/13KLWtI) for couples to be married at the park on 9/13. My fiancé Scott (@KeniScott) would love to be selected, but Tony Clark (@TonyClarkCP) has refused to accept our submission due to Ohio's stance against same-sex marriage.

 

We both adore CP and our time shared at that magical place. Being married there (even if just a commitment ceremony) would mean the world to us. I love it so much, I even featured many photos of us at the park in a website I created as an anniversary present for Scott: LuvHubster.com | The Photo Love Story of Scott & Eric.

 

Please tweet @TonyClarkCP and @CedarPoint to ask for equal rights in their wedding contest.

 

My Twitter handle is @ericjmorrison. Thank you so very much!

Though I understand you struggles and support you, I think the main people you need to be petitioning against is the Ohio state government. I'm sure if it was legal, Cedar Point would be happy to let you in, however they don't want to break the law. There is really nothing Cedar Point can do to fix this issue as it's not their decision.

 

Best regards with your relationship.

Would I love to be "legally" married in Ohio? Absolutely. But, I'm realistic and know that is not legal as of this contest. However, a commitment ceremony is certainly possible and should be eligible for this contest. Plus, Cedar Fair should rightfully stand in support of the LGBT community given how many LGBT employees they have.

 

What does the law have to do with lifetime commitments? We could still participate without it being legally binding, because it would be binding to us. It would be our commitment made to each other for our lives, in a place that is very special to us both, which is more important than what a piece of paper says.

 

By taking this stance, Cedar Fair is harming their image to a great deal of people as the support for same-sex marriage increases. I sincerely hope they allow Scott and I to take part in a commitment ceremony at the place we both adore so very much.

^You will not find a bigger support group for the LGBT community than right here on TPR. Unfortunately, we still live in an ass-backwards society and the state law definition of "marriage" will always take precedent here.

If you agree that a commitment ceremony should be counted in the contest, please tweet @TonyClarkCP and @CedarPoint to ask for equal rights in their wedding contest.

 

I'm not asking for a legal marriage, just to be allowed to at least be considered for the contest with a commitment ceremony. Nothing more, nothing less.

 

Thank you for your support!

I will be going to Cedar Point for the first time on August 29th. We will be staying at Sandcastle Suites and I just have a few questions.

1. How bad will the crowds be?

2. Would it be worth it to get a Starlight ticket for the night before?

3. Should I wait to get FastLane+ or pre-order online?

4. What rides should I go to first during Early Entry?

5. Are there any good dining options in the park?

^I think it's a bit cheaper to buy your Fast Lane online. Definitely hit Maverick Millennium Force first. As for food, Pink's Hotdogs are a bit expensive, but pretty good.

I can understand CP not wanting to cause waves... but it would be nice to see something to the effect "we stand for marriage equality" from them. If they do that, they open themselves up to all sorts of problems. I can see it either way... Pros and cons to doing something or doing nothing.

 

But after working for 3 summers at the Point (91-93) I can say the park is very welcoming to everyone. There is a significant LBGT population that works at and visits the park.
