Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Once again Millennium Force wins Golden Ticket Award for best Steal Coaster. She's old, but she's still good! Over 13 million rides given!

 

Also once again Cedar Point Wins Best Amusement Park for 2013!

I just rode it for the first time, what a great ride! Pretty cool that I rode MF right as it was winning the award I got in from the airport and got to Sandusky about 8pm so I had time for only a couple of rides. I wanted to make the night rides count since tomorrow when I do the full day the park closes before dark. I only got two rides in but the first was a front row ride on Millennium Force and the other was a front row right ride on GateKeeper.

 

Millennium Force was as good as expected..smooth as I was expecting and with plenty of floater air Seemed fast, but then I have no other times riding it to compare it to. GateKeeper was a bit better than I expected, I've heard a lot of 'meh' reviews but it was significantly better than average! It seemed quite a bit faster than it looks from off the ride. I look forward to riding tomorrow in the day time when I can see the lake too.

 

Fairly busy out there tonight, when I got there GK Raptor and MF had hour waits, Twister, Iron Dragon, and Cork Screw looked to be about 30 mins. I didn't go further back than MF with the amount of time I had.

 

Planning on getting there at 10am tomorrow with early entry opening at 11..is that early enough? Ive heard there can be quite the line sometimes but tomorrow should be a much slower day I think.

^No need to get there a hour before early entry - any kind of line doesn't usually form until 15-20 minutes beforehand. If you get there 30 mins before you'll be way ahead of the pack especially considering tomorrow is one of the slowest weekend days of the year. Don't know where you are staying but if you are off point - park in the back and go in one of the back entrances, or walk from the main lot to the marina entrance - puts you halfway back in the park at opening

^ Thanks maybe I will trim another 20 minutes or so off. Im just at some random place on Milan, about 10 mins away. You remind me though it was weird when I drove in today at about 8pm I went to show my pass for parking and they said "Nah dont worry about it just go on" and then I kept getting waved closer and closer and I ended up parking so close (the slanted spots right at the main gate) I was sure I wasnt supposed to park there. I didn't see any reserved signs or parking placards though so I figured I was safe and all turned out well. Just one of those "it can't be this easy" moments.

 

I noticed tonight there was a Fast Lane entrance for Wicked Twister, I thought it wasn't included...is it an upgrade or something?

And Magnum XL 200 solidifies it's ranking as the most overrated coaster in the history of ever by being ranked as the 9th best steel coaster in the world ahead of I305. I love Magnum, but are you kidding me? When will this end?

^Location, location, location!

 

^^Where is this entrance located?

I apologize in advance for the oversized photo, Im in a motel room on a crappy laptop and don't have any tools with which to resize - it's not that I didn't think about it! Mods if you want to/are able to resize for me awesome otherwise Ill change it when I get home.

 

There's a fast lane "gate" right to the left of this photo similar to other rides. I will definitely ask about this when I'm there today.

Agreed. I will never understand the Magnum following... In my opinion, it is a near terrible ride. Once a season is enough for me.

Yeah. I'm in the club of really enjoying the ride, mostly for its raw simplicity. But at no point would I ever even begin to toy with the idea of arguing that it's better than all but 8 coasters on earth.

 

I do think it makes for one of the best season-enders though. Going on the final night of the year and riding it nonstop is pretty fun. It has a pretty awesome location as the end of the season the waterpark and hotels aren't open so it's just dark heading out towards the lake. And those no-trim rides are pretty ridiculous if you are like me and don't mind being thrown around a bit on coasters.

This is very strange considering CP doesn't even list Wicked Twister on their website.

Yup, this must be brand new. I just checked a picture of mine from August 9, and there was no fast lane sign in the spot where the picture on the last page shows it. Would have been mad if I missed it while I was there!
