PKI ManJZ's CP PTR!


Recommended Posts

Hey all, a little late PTR, but I think it will be greatly appreciated!

 

I got to Sandusky the first day around 12 PM. We stopped at McDonalds first and I had to pay 2$ for a double cheese burger! Its always a dollar where I am at! Elissa is that acceptionable? XD I got the new Chicken Snack Wrap and d*mn those are good! So after that, we got into Cedar Point and it was a cloudly/rainy day. Anyways, it scared away the crowds and I went strait to Millennium Force. It was about 1/2 hour wait. This ride is simply amazing. Arguably the best coaster, drop, overbanks, speed, and ride at CP. Still #1 in my book! After MF i headed down into Frontier land to see that Maverick construction going on. It was hilarious to hear what everyone said it was! - "Its another Millennium Force since everyone likes it so much." "It goes 900ft up." "Its a new type of coaster." At that time, I though it was going to be a Rita and Speed Monster combo. I went on Skyhawk after that and waited about 1/2 hr for it. It was okay - Good airtime, but it goes full speed twice and its a bout 45second ride! Not that great. So I continued down the trail to Mean Streak Only to see a GIANT sign that says "One of the best wooden roller coasters - Themeparks Magazine" I didnt think so. Mean Streak is fun.....but it's also rough, slow, and lacking airtime. So after Mean Streak, I got around to the Gemini area had one of those big Elephant Ears. -see Robb's pic titled "Something Dan can NEVER eat- XD After having that snack, I got a quick ride on Gemini. Gemini has gotten better and better everytime I ride it. It has good airtime on the first drop and all the bumbs. I could have sworn there was a drunk guy behind me, cause during the lift hill hes all like "OMG! This is so rough! Owch man this hurts!" Then talking to himself about betting he can turn around the whole ride. Oh well, it was a fun ride. Next up was another of my fav rides - Magnum XL 200. The wait was about 5 min and it was well worth it. The first drop was awesome, then had excelent airtime throughout the whole ride. Simple another awesome CP ride. By then it was getting close to 5PM and I decided to get a ride on Dragster. Alright, the next part of the PTR is 100% TRUE and FRICKING AMAZING! Like I said, it was a coudly/rainy day. I was in line for TTD and i was one train from getting on, and then it started pouring rain. After about 5 min, it stopped raining and they loaded. I was in the back seat in the very back. Our orange train pulled out and launched. We got about 400ft up and slowly stopped. I was all like "OMFG!ROLL BACK!!!! YEA BABY!!!!!1!!!" Yes, you heard right, I had a TTD rollback and it was amazing. We were cresting the hill and slowly stopped, then rolled back! The braked stopped us rather quickly, then we came to a very slow stop, then put the mags up and down like 5 times, then launched again and though i was hoping for a roll back, it made it this time. The ride I will never forget. My mom though I was seriously going to die! XD!!! So after that, I got over to the Wicked Twister Midway and rode WT, Disaster Transport, and MaxAir. Wicked Twister was good, backseat had some good floater and fun spiraling straight down.

So then I left arounf 9PM and got some dinner at Applebees! <3

The line for TTD still gets to be 4 1/2 hours long???

 

I've never seen it that long in its debut year, hell I haven't even seen Kingda Ka's line get THAT long.

 

when i was there in 2005....the line was all the way down the midway...

i believe it was around a 5 hour wait.. It didnt help that it kept breaking down every couple of launches .. so many people were in line they just finnaly closed it for the day because they coudlnt run it effeciently enough.

 

for me, this years trip in august... it was like 100 degrees out... and people didnt want to stand in lines all day... so people were getting Dragster rerides like candy... that was a good day.

On the bottom of your posting page there is a box that says Add Photo or Attatchment. You click on Browse, find the folder you stored the pictures in, press OK, give it a caption, and there you go. To put multiple ones on, press the Add Photo or Attatchment button on the bottom right and you will get a new box and you keep doing the same thing until all of your pictures are posted.

 

Anyways, great pics! Can't wait to see more.

That was one of the coolest parts of CP! The sun was halfway setting and it was a pinkish red color and right when I got off Raptor I was like wow this will be freakin sweet! So thats how that came about.

 

Also, the pic taken of the yellow MF train, somthing happened twice while I was there...once in line. The brakes at the very end or somthing messed up and they had to transfer it off. But the line was moving at the same pace!

 

UPDATE more CP pics!
