Photo TR: Cedar Point 5/20 - 5/21


Recommended Posts

So, not unlike at least a few people here, I hiked down to the Point for Victoria Day weekend (minus Saturday). Stayed at Hotel Breakers for the first time, in the old section. Definitely wasn't worth $100, but we payed $50 anyway with coupons.

 

So, without further ado...

IMG_3538.thumb.jpg.0edd36283d750d15bf6f940b1c8c5474.jpg

Part 2 coming up tomorrow!

IMG_3536.jpg.5f6cecb1dac1db8a462a9099b506b318.jpg

And Hotel Breakers calls this a "non-view" room!

IMG_3535.thumb.jpg.208814fcc697670544f9c29f012137d8.jpg

Where's Simba and Pride Rock?

IMG_3534.jpg.a104d5541abad3cb0173b72f175bd1f2.jpg

IMG_3525.jpg.aeca55608c96649919ac9b33d7543dc2.jpg

At this point I went to get my coat... needless to say, MF kinda gives you the real meaning of "windchill".

IMG_3523.jpg.30340743d1a9e195733b64500129fcf6.jpg

But it turns out the water tower makes a lovely birdbath ornament!

IMG_3522.jpg.432600f6e4c0e513c34754140fb1f961.jpg

So I figured "dragon" and "pagoda" would fit together...

IMG_3520.jpg.5966bd827bce3a506b08b43948653b80.jpg

My frame-shot attempt didn't turn out half-bad!

IMG_3514.jpg.90dff2e0107e505e09fce7cb25065b5d.jpg

The best part of Coasters...

OMG! It's Project 2008!!

IMG_3498.jpg.53d73ed4f4387bb619d524f70946832f.jpg

This is Chaos' default position? I thought it'd just be flat.

Did the Pirate Ride close when Raptor opened?

IMG_3488.jpg.c318b478e52de152f741ead578b2fc5c.jpg

Kinda rough this year.

IMG_3485.jpg.c831b8482c6ce60ee797f90e38bedabd.jpg

This is where Corkscrew goes and shames itself for hurting all those poor innocent riders! =)

IMG_3484.jpg.d0c442e11ee5fafa2745308c37e4d71c.jpg

IMG_3481.jpg.8d97989ff6f40e4ef2424f2e963fbc58.jpg

IMG_3479.thumb.jpg.301b61d1e8ccb75279f64ee4db9d6306.jpg

These were only around TTD and MF.

IMG_3477.jpg.b7566bd9071707d3e193e6087aab2474.jpg

IMG_3475.jpg.0b030811eeece73c187191ebf7ed1cc7.jpg

lol, rollback

IMG_3471.jpg.29814b35162b67e54bc5123733baf9a3.jpg

My favourite ride, and I know a lot of you will dispute that.

IMG_3467.jpg.870bb2ff8cb0ebbfe417489f376bc494.jpg

IMG_3466.jpg.30805d35e08587c6f6f3d3ac9732f2e1.jpg

The Jeff Johnson Express!

IMG_3464.jpg.62e4909c87185af03732bef0253076b7.jpg

"lol, internet"

 

"My hands have rigor mortis!"

IMG_3460.jpg.8cea23dc3241dd7b2f03e7e6c2a813fb.jpg

Everyone's actually happy?

IMG_3458.jpg.2eb70406f2144c9303351d5b6a3e05b1.jpg

Dang... almost worked!

IMG_3457.jpg.0de816278b62b896c13b21209b97bbe8.jpg

For all those train enthusiasts!

IMG_3455.jpg.da204872e495522a4b15e666b3cdfddd.jpg

If this queue is ever used, that'd be one hell of a crowd.

IMG_3453.jpg.5622d66353dbfb92a9c54faeb13a57cb.jpg

Airtime-licious!

IMG_3452.jpg.616b9fc857956f65a80de013e25c1501.jpg

Nicely framed.

IMG_3448.jpg.d5e73e0100ac3daf4890eb2428b110af.jpg

These pictures don't do it justice... especially MY pictures.

IMG_3446.jpg.5294b7b86798995203fd16c6f03e3a40.jpg

All the trains were stored on the circuit while the modifications were made.

IMG_3444.jpg.282e79ac173cd0fde3e111dfff6074c1.jpg

...Okay, what the hell is so interesting to my right?!

IMG_3443.jpg.c8de79e7b361c6ab6ca15bc1799499be.jpg

Time to go ride!

IMG_3441.jpg.659869f67e1c69deb40091fac90c2a09.jpg

Yep... silver = shiny!

IMG_3440.jpg.c21e5266d720bf5fe81a20ec77d09045.jpg

Why do those white tubes just stop a quarter of the way up?

IMG_3439.jpg.e20086a1aab7f0ec05ceea9f5ade02a6.jpg

The station looks really spiffy!

IMG_3438.jpg.9d1ad75d406a6c2078967aaedafed82f.jpg

Is this the first "Maverick through the trees" shot?

IMG_3436.jpg.bd284da3d74c8c02651e41b6e4bfd1dd.jpg

Maverick really does look a lot bigger and better in person.

IMG_3435.jpg.75d5db0a9f2e1720dd3e064288524332.jpg

...Not much in between!

IMG_3433.jpg.8696e7565ea46eb1024c9d027844e731.jpg

And there's the other end...

IMG_3434.jpg.6d7a9b5f08e24dc5fc041b1847bbb142.jpg

There's one end...

IMG_3431.jpg.657ca82438d5af782a4e2e15245e06e9.jpg

How fast does it take to fill/drain the pond?

IMG_3432.jpg.dae5ac972d13b88f9d46dfb45f8e0284.jpg

It might have been nicer than I expected for weather, but not THAT nice.

IMG_3430.jpg.4557cd2077da1aef8ca91820d9ab7c47.jpg

IMG_3428.jpg.353b6a9cd4b26be5d8b117d62cb0eba7.jpg

Hey Jahan! =)

IMG_3427.jpg.35ee1c5dd28b0f4caf782e85807099f3.jpg

IMG_3426.jpg.bd6abc2371d9569498e92c7490a59130.jpg

The first of many dark photos.

IMG_3424.jpg.0b08b2b10dbb3c39d10cc344e87d92e7.jpg

Maybe Maverick's track is in here!

IMG_3422.jpg.50bcf5d8455ae4f12f30f4a970573ea8.jpg

One of the nice laid-back areas of the park.

IMG_3421.jpg.9faba34995da4040e2a1242d40af81aa.jpg

Sig shot

IMG_3420.jpg.94e9042fa031e211d6dca3afd43ff39e.jpg

This thing needs some speed. Where's Doc Brown and the coloured smoke logs when you need 'em?

IMG_3417.thumb.jpg.882b96195c30fb3abea227ba12d57173.jpg

And then, like so many things, Mantis ruins it. =)

IMG_3416.jpg.e4198c85efc2da2bcf3ca2a9e5fe1909.jpg

And even better!

IMG_3414.jpg.4fe7012af74cac1bbce06ec2b40d8408.jpg

This one's not so bad!

IMG_3412.jpg.0438acbad648a19a40ca5c7b2ec52fa2.jpg

Sadly, my shot turned out more "pathetic" than "artistic"...

IMG_3411.jpg.828e1db70bf3457c78510130eab6cd98.jpg

Hey Derek!

IMG_3409.jpg.9a912766b6a5cd6a398a47562134836e.jpg

The first pic inside the park. My uncle and I went back to the front to process his season pass.

IMG_3404.jpg.3833d47ecef1cdf856f013a272ccdc84.jpg

Didn't ride it this time around... more time for 1/2-hour MF!

IMG_3403.thumb.jpg.2d07fd42529e7cbb7f1bfcb894c1ed97.jpg

So the biggest line of the entire two days was likely for Dragster... but considering it was 1 hour on the 2-4 weekend, that's pretty good.

IMG_3402.jpg.f48bc114a1d5c258866e7c93ed4d5512.jpg

Hello, 102-year-old hotel where I lost my glasses! (Housekeeping's still searching, though, so kudos to them.)

IMG_3396.jpg.0379a352d6a3afe95c27febb66e76160.jpg

Guess they took out MF's track and painted it red for the S-bend! =)

IMG_3395.jpg.241613d13a9b21255076084f59348160.jpg

I actually took this picture by accident!

IMG_3393.jpg.8442d94c5c7521a4b105f5ed43879e44.jpg

Breaking news: You can actually have fun... at Cedar Point... without MAVERICK! What a concept!

IMG_3392.jpg.32444593ec8574c660f812bc9d832c95.jpg

Boo ya!

IMG_3389.jpg.ecddf88c398abb6750bedac88eca58ae.jpg

The one picture I got of the actual park is too dark, but I'll say it looks very nice. We actually only went past 'cause we missed a turn-off...

IMG_3387.jpg.5aa897f963aba92d0f627e2b7cdf4768.jpg

The roads always get smoother the instant you hit the border... hooray for crappy Michigan roads!

IMG_3386.jpg.cb5fb13b12986868d3ddb2a5084d1311.jpg

This was pretty much the weather for the whole time. What happened to the showers forecasted? Don't know, don't care.

IMG_3385.jpg.b7d5f25208d0203a5a0dd1ec5aa8a721.jpg

Looks like the fair at Gibraltar Trade Center was up again this year...

IMG_3384.jpg.1a6d378e2323633574f7e957041ad028.jpg

Always a nice sight to see when you get off the Ambassador Bridge!

For such a nice day, it got damn chilly by the lake!

IMG_3599.thumb.jpg.4142018aac62e3e2177f6ab49ed9a524.jpg

Never been on the beachwalk behind Breakers before this.

IMG_3598.jpg.bd6009d81f7c1756ac65c77222152f5b.jpg

Oh, come on, this thing totally kicked ass back in '94!

Is this like the "Kidtums birth POV" that we never had?

IMG_3579.jpg.13c0e52a51eecaf305850670220d15c3.jpg

So if they've already tested this part and everything went fine... what work is still being done in there?

Magnum... through some various foliage including but not limited to trees!

Flying Man apparently strikes again in the exact same seat!

Tested the camera zoom for these next few.

Wonder if they're still even looking for those glasses anymore...

IMG_3543.jpg.99c9c6fa069c2424168b27282b80a59c.jpg

Bigger potential for a rollback! Alas, I rode the fourth train of the day, and only the first three got the "honour of failure".

IMG_3539.jpg.2b882c00ab2c33221692c34219339c60.jpg

Well, it's cold this morning, so you know what that means...

Can someone enlighten me as to what a "Terra Coaster" is? I thought it was a coaster that is 500+ feet tall.

 

That just sounds like marketing BS speak for "terrain coaster", which makes their claim especially bad.

Wow awsome PTR! These are really great pics.

 

^I thought a terra coaster was well.. this is how I thought it wen't (this makes me very confused).

 

 

Mega= 100ft

 

Hyper= 200ft

 

Giga= 300ft

 

Strata= 400ft

 

Terra= 500ft.

 

 

At least this is what I was told.

Maverick is not 500 ft.

 

Terra coaster is just one of the fake buzz words that Cedar Points hype machine comes up with.

For what it's worth, Earth's "Terrasphere" is "what's deep under your feet. It's different than the BIOSPHERE where just about all life exists. When we talk about the terrasphere, we are talking about the planet. We're talking about what's beneath the surface of the Earth. There are rivers of molten rock, huge spheres of solid Iron, and more rivers, but of molten Iron. So much going on just beneath the surface."

 

 

http://www.cartage.org.lb/en/kids/science/Geog/Earth/Earth.htm

 

 

So maybe a "Terra Coaster" is a coaster, as stated above, that's close to the ground.

Not to add fuel to the fire, but the next step would be "terabyte" with 1 'r', and then "terra" with 2 r's as in "terrain".

 

 

Crap.

 

" lol, internet " .... ha! good call on that Gemini pic. Those silver trains on Maverick look niiiiice. thanks for the pics.

 

I tried one of those "look down the brake run" pics, and kinda got that extra.

 

Thanks for all the comments so far, guys!

Well, I don't mind as much as some when a coaster beats the crap out of me. Now that I think about it, it was running fairly well all things considered.

 

Let me put it this way: It wasn't any worse than Mantis.

 

I'll definitely still ride it with a short wait, though.

 

P.S. Checked the calendar, checked with the parents... thanks to the season pass, looks like I'm going back in 9 days.

Not so sad or pathetic. This is a nice TR with great photos.

 

I love that picture of Corkscrew, with the train on that weird flat section of track. I've always wondered why that's there, it's like there should be a MCBR or something, but it's just straight flat track.

 

I also love the picture of Magnum at night from your hotel room. It's a beautiful coaster and one of my favorites as well, beaten only by Millennium Force.

Hopefully today, I love Magnum! Besides MF it's my favorite ride in the park, and still a top 10 coaster for me...so bring on those Magnum shots!

Great TR!
