Hey! I was in the park on Sunday too. I drive by an EHCRWA tower on my way home, though mine's a different tower. I think it stands for (E-word) (H-word) County (Reclaimed or Regional) Water (Authority or Association). I can't find anything online.

 

The crowds on Sunday were extremely light. I got numerous rides.

I was also there Sunday. We rode Raptor and were in line to ride again (since it was the only coaster open between 10 and 11) when it got stuck going up the hill. Me and my son were next in line when this happened and we were to nervous to ride it so we hopped out of line and went straight to Maverick. There was a line outside of the cue line since it was not opened yet, but when it did open we had at most a 5 minute wait. As the day went on I started to think the roller coasters were making weird noises. I don't know if I was just paranoid because of Raptor (it was only stuck for 5 minutes then worked fine!) or if was because there was not many people on the trains. Mean Streak really tore me up. I've rode it before but it was really rough this time. I heard a cable making a plucking sound as we went up the hill. That was scary! Last time I rode it it stopped half way up the first hill. I don't think I will ride this one again. After Raging Wolf Bons broke at Geauga Lake last year, I'm worried the same could happen here and that is a big hill to roll backwards on! I will be back there next week and I hope it's just like this time, no lines! I'm surprised everyone with a pass was not there.

^ Hang on. Raptor stopped on the lift hill, and you got scared and didn't ride? How often do you visit the park? If someone's got their cell phone or a camera out or unbuckles their seat belt, they'll stop the ride on the lift if it clears the station.

 

I think you're paranoid. What are "weird noises" when it comes to roller coasters? Also, don't ride Mean Streak. It's crap. What cable would make a plucking sound on Mean Streak? There aren't cables on the ride except below the handrails on the rides, and those don't move, so there's no sound to be made. Are you sure it wasn't the anti-rollbacks?

I've been to Cedar Point 8 total times, 6 this year. I don't know what made that sound but it sounded like a large guitar string being plucked! I did not realize that is why they stop for 5 minutes like that. I probably am just paranoid because my husband is a machinist and I understnd the concept of machines breaking down or loose bolts, but I'll still ride. I just don't want to be on anything if something major happens. Also I have a slight fear of heights so going up the hill is the worst part. After that I'm fine. I actually rode Millenium Force last month and loved it. I heard the elevator lifts are much safer than the cable lifts. My son is 11 and just started riding coasters 2 years ago and most of the time it is just the two of us so I don't want to force him on anything if he's too scared. He has rode 13 of the 17 coasters there and just realized these things happen. Maybe I should have had a beer! That would have settled my nerves!

I was there Sunday too. Got in a couple Raptor rides during ERT before I headed back to Maverick. Waited maybe 20 minutes each for Maverick and Dragster, and about 15 for Millennium Force. Everything else was essentially a walk-on. It was seriously the most empty day I've ever seen at the park, and I've been going there for 15 years. I actually left at like 6 in the evening because I'd literally been on all the big rides already!

Part 2- Cedar Point (Part 4)

 

 

The last amount of pics...

Raptor from the sky

I had to levitate like Chris Angel to take this picture!

Will this still be here next year...?

I prefer V2 over Wicked Twister

I love this picture, it would look better if Lake Erie was clean though...

Replace this with a un-twisted spike, and everything's good!

Signature shot!

The Corkscrew midway (including Magnum, Milly, and Mantis) reminds me of Action Zone.

Top Thrill Dragster!

Millennium Force of course!

I like MaXair more than Delirium

Unfortunately we didn't ride this...

Disaster Transport today, GCI tomorrow...

Chaos

Kids just love good ole' Snoopy, the 500 year old poorly drawn dog!

Planet Snoopy

Little known fact: Cedar Point does have a "pirate ship"; it's Ocean Motion!

TTD isn't that tall..!

My three favorite things; Pepsi, Roller Coasters, and over-sized dog balloons!

As for the Passholder day, it was amazingly empty. Seriously walk-ons on everything, and any rides that didn't have a walk on were no more than 10 or so minutes.

 

As for the Raptor stopping on the lift, I was on the stopped train. It was a routine ride system restart... after we got off that run, we headed back for Millennium Force. We got on the second train of the day, and it stopped at the peak of the lift for 20 minutes. It's amazing the views you can get from up there, if only I would have brought my camera that day.

 

All and all it was a perfect day at the Point.
