Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Cedar Point is not letting anyone inside the park as of now from what I've been told. There is a water main break somewhere on the peninsula and they have no running water. So I guess it's a health code violation to have people in the park. But since early entry is already inside, they are letting them stay and not letting anyone else in. I'm inside right now and the entrances are blocked off and no food places are open. People are waiting by the main gate so I'm not sure if they're going to be opening it soon or not.

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

OK these are freaking cool. https://cedarpointonlineshop.com/

Made it out to Cedar Point this past weekend, October 17th-18th with my mom and dad to visit my sister working at the park. My sister works at Dorney, but since they closed early, a bunch of full time

Saw this on CP's Facebook page: Early this morning, the City of Sandusky experienced a water main break on the main line that supplies water to Cedar Point. The City of Sandusky is currently working to repair the system. Without our normal water supply, and due to safety concerns, the park is unable to open today. All guest tickets will be honored on future dates this season. Please visit cedarpoint.com for the latest updates.

Yikes!! Extremely disappointing for the park and guests.

My family is at Hotel Breakers. No water in any of the hotels, most of the restaurants are closed, and there are lots of angry guests.

 

Wow sounds pretty bad, you'd think considering CP is in such a remote area they'd have a back up or something.

Cedar Point is going to take a huge financial hit for this, it's a Saturday with perfect weather the day after Coastermania... and to be honest if they don't offer some kind of credit to all of their resort guests they're going to face an even bigger PR hit. I feel awful for the guests at the park and for the PR department as it's really not the park's fault at all.

According to a hotel employee, some lady hit the water line. I wonder if she'll get in any trouble over this incident.

 

Employees are also saying that water line may be fixed by 1pm.

Looks like I just got out in time! As I was leaving they were closing part of the parking lot as it was flooded.

 

Coastermania was great! I've been going for over 15 years and this was one of the best! Just two thoughts:

 

- Millennium Force! Wow! I'm in the "it's fun but forceless" camp but it was hauling yesterday (even in the morning) by night ERT it had been running for 16/17 hours and I don't think I've ever see it run faster. The hill next to station was ejector air as was the return hill from the island (not as powerful but not the usual just floater). Am I crazy or did anyone else sense it was running really fast? Like I said even in the morning it was flying - you can always tell by how fast it hits the final brakes.

 

- Why are enthusiasts so ungrateful? This is one (if not the only) event that is FREE but all I heard was complaining all day. From the long line in the morning (it happens every year but park knows how to handle and push ppl through) to numerous people screaming at MF ops during ERT because they were doing their job and pulsing the line to the station. The poor ride OP ran off all upset - one chick said "let's just push are way through this is crazy she is preventing rerides!" Mind you the line was only 2 mins long... And the amount of people complaining about lines or lunch on twitter was disappointing. Back in the day it was some ERT and hot dogs for lunch now it's tons of events and full ribs for lunch with a case of free swag - hopefully the few doesn't ruin it for us.

 

Again props to the park - been going to event since late 90s and they always do a great job!

Our family decided to head to the park to get our tickets refunded. The park is doing everything they can. They're even handing out bottles of water for free! Yet people are still screaming at employees and acting like the park had been planning on this happening!!!

I'm at the park as well. Got two rides on MF before the closure. Blah... Any other suggestions for the Sandusky area?

 

For those who are here, they're giving exit passes to season pass holders instead of ticket refunds.

Looks like the park will not open at all today.

 

Very sad, feel bad for everyone involved.

Not too far away is a cool zoo!

At around 10:25 this morning, I used the bathroom in Hotel Breakers and flushed. Then the water main broke. Coincidence?

 

Yeah, but still.

 

My girlfriend and I took a late morning and didn't get up till 10. We were miffed about not having water for a shower but the severity of the situation didn't hit us until we got to the lobby to check out and saw a madhouse of angry people. Someone in a dress shirt with a Cedar Point name tag told us that rooms reserved for last night and today will have total refunds. It was at that point I asked a random person what was going on.

 

We've been stopped on Perimeter Rd. the past 15 minutes, which has gotten us past Millennium Force. I type this next to the train bays and the dorms. There's quite a few people walking on the road, and my best guess is that they need to get back to the hotels but can't cut through the park. It's crazy.

 

I feel for everyone who now has a ruined vacation, Cedar Point employees who have been berated by angry guests and the park itself for losing out on what should be one of the first busy Saturdays of the season. We're lucky that we were heading out anyway but this is a completely awful situation all the way around for everyone involved.

 

Edit: It dawns on me that this is also the first day for a bunch of shows. The Snoopy ice skating show, the Broadway show, and I think one more. This is a disaster is every possible way for absolutely everyone involved. Ugh.

Is this a kind of situation that will be fixed in a day, or it will it take multiple days? I know this is a rare event though, so if anyone has a best guess. We were planning to go on Tuesday, but it's a very long drive.

I completely agree with what you've said about Millennium. I was blown away with how well the ride was running yesterday during the morning ERT and at night especially. Comparing it to my previous visits to CP, the floater air on the big hill felt much stronger than usual and the tiny hop next to the station was delivering with some really sweet ejector air by the end of the night. I ended up riding 8 times yesterday and by the end of the event I was glad that MF was swapped out for TTD being down..

Just goes to show how stupid people can be. Yes, it's a bummer that it happened and I feel bad for families that just had their expensive vacation ruined, but it wasn't the parks fault and they should be smart enough to realize that without getting belligerent.

 

Do these idiots think that CP would deliberately shut the park down on a beautiful Saturday afternoon losing tons of revenue just to spite their family? And what does berating the poor employees accomplish? Hearing & seeing people act in this manner of entitlement just sickens me anymore...what a bunch of tools.

 

 

For those in the area looking for something to do, I bet it would be a great day to take the ferry over to one of the Lake Erie Islands. Put In Bay is great for the over 21 crowd with lots of bars, shops and restaurants and there are some things for the younger crowd (rent bikes, golf carts, etc)

 

Another option would be to head to Cleveland. I believe that the water park at Geauga Lake is still open for those that may have Platinum Passes. Either that or hit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...or as one other person mentioned, hit the Cleveland Zoo.

 

It rained for the majority of the two days when we were there last time, but instead of pissing and moaning about it, we just went out and found stuff to do while we waited for the rain to stop - which it did and then the park was dead!

 

Edit: Glad to hear about MF running faster. It was definitely sluggish when we were there, but I assumed it was because it was quite chilly.
