Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 1989: Wicked Twister's permanent closure announced!

Recommended Posts

Went to the Point today for the first time in a couple of years.

Rougarou is now in my top 5 coasters at Cedar Point. It was an absolute blast! It's really amazing the difference the floorless trains make for the ride. I rode in the front row, then the back row. My head hit the restraint just one time on my first ride, and not at all the second time. If you know the layout well, you can avoid head banging by leaning into all the snappy turns like Maverick.

 

I agree on this, I found at least for me that if I lean a bit forward, then almost any sort of side to side movement stopped for me. I got head banged once heading in the corkscrew, but with the 7 rides I took, that was the only time. The important number is the number of re-rides I took and saw the general public also jumping back in line during my visit last week; even though the line was over an hour long! So it seems Cedar Point made a great decision here, it really was fun to always hop in the line every time I was headed towards MF or Maverick, instead of passing it up like in the past.

 

Great blog post on Thunderbird by the way!

I'm looking for advice from some of our larger members. One of my friends wants to hit Cedar Point next week but he is on the larger side. I know Millennium and Dragster are out of the question but any advice on what he might fit on? He managed to fit on everything at Universal last week if that helps.

 

 

When i visited Cedar Point last season i was 260 at 5'11 and a 40 inch waist. I fit on everything except Wicked Twister.

 

Wicked Twister and Drop Tower at Kings Island were the only rides i did not fit. I visited four different parks.

 

Ditto. I think Wicked Twister is the least forgiving roller coaster there. I was the same dimensions as above when I went in 2013 and fit on everything comfortably except Wicked Twister. It wasn't even close - I pulled down the restraint and basically was like "Yea, looks like this'll be a big bag of nope for me".

 

 

Have you been to Kings Dominion? I am worried about Volcano since i did not fit on Wicked Twister or Kings Islands Drop Tower last season.

Yes, he may be able to fit on TTD and MF. They aren't Completley out of the question. I think the biggest problem he'll have on those rides is buckling his belt. Wicked Twister is probably out though, it's not all that fun though. It's literally maybe 40 seconds. Not worth a 10 minute wait IMO.

At 44 inches, my father didn't fit on Millennium Force or Top Thrill Dragster... but he DID fit on Wicked Twister. Comfortably too, apparently, because it was his favorite ride there at the time.

 

He's lost some weight since then, and I think he was around 40 inches when we went back to the park. He could fit on everything that time, no problem.

I fit on Volcano fine as the belts are in the front, not the side like Wicked Twister. I also fit fine on the drop tower at KD but not KI because of the pads that they put on the top of the restraints.

 

No problem for me on MF or TTD.

^Thank you! Makes me happy to see people reading my blog! It JUST went live like 2 days ago haha.

 

Can't send you a PM - but wanted to say I like your blog

 

Back on topic - Wicked Twister is definitely the LEAST larger guest friendly I've seen.

I'm trying to make a trip to Cedar Point before the weather gets too hot but due to my work schedule, it's looking like it may have to be a dreaded Saturday that I make the trip. Not wanting to spend the entire day waiting in line, I'm thinking of going with the fastlane pass. On a typical busy Saturday, does the fastlane pass still take upwards of an hour in line? Just trying to gauge if it's worth the extra money to get the fast lane pass or if I should just wait until the summer when I can book a Wednesday or something off work.

I've been wondering about something and hopefully you guys can help me out. I recently bought a Platinum Pass off of Kings Island's website, however I will be attending Cedar Point before I can get my pass processed. Can I still get my platinum pass processed at Cedar Point or do I have to get it processed at KI since I bought it from there?

 

Also any idea of the size of crowds on June 1st? It's a Monday so I know those are usually less busy, however a lot of schools are starting to let out.

 

Thanks!!

We got Fast Lane plus the last Saturday of May last season. Most lines were over an hour for the normal queue. We pretty much walked on everything except MF because the FL merges where the ramp starts. some people have complained about waiting a long time in mavericks FL but when we went we were able to walk on three times in a row with the normal line being well over an hour.

Power came back on about 10 minutes after the park closed today. Hopefully tomorrow will be a much better day.

Another note. Wicked Twister was testing all day as if it was about to open. Still not sure if the state has inspected and approved it yet, but it looked like it could very well open tomorrow. I hope so, because Wicked Twister is lots of fun. Also, Maverick was having issues all day and never opened. I really hope I can ride my favorite coaster at the Point at least once on this trip!

They have had bad luck as of late.

 

The water and power went out last year. I believe the water went out during or near a holiday, and the power also had issues one day last year as well.

 

The water main broke the day after Coastermania. I was there that Saturday, and got 4 rides (platinum early entry) when the park closed. It was closed for several days last year.

Maverick had to evacuate at about 6PM on Tuesday evening, bet it's the same issue, whatever it is.

 

On that note, what is it about Maveric that makes it especially sensitive?
