Hello TPR!

 

Here is another update of my summer here in America! One of my friends took my to a local diner here in Sandusky. It's called Berardis and it's really delish! I usually go to chain restaurants but I prefer local restaurants. Whenever you should be in Sandusky, go there!

 

Cedar Point offered several bus trips to different destinations here in America (Chicago, Washington, Niagara Falls etc.) and I did the one to NYC! Yup, you're right, I went to one of the best cities in America!

 

I loved NYC! The atmosphere was exactly how I knew it from all the movies that play there! I think my friends and me were the only ones that visited most of the famous places in NYC. We also went to Little Italy where they had a street event with lots of food! We really enjoyed our time in NYC and I definitely have to go back there one day to do Scott's Pizza tour!

 

Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy your ride!

Hey TPR!

 

I’m so sorry for not having posted any update since my trip to New York! Halloweekends started in September and it was super busy. Besides that, I had to get new footage for you guys! This update is a kind of mixture of my work experience during Halloweekends and things we did during the week when the park was closed! I didn’t have the time to fully explore Halloweekends at Cedar Point, because staffing is really bad during this time of the year, so we had to work all the time, which is not bad at all, because it means FUN FUN FUN and money in the bank!

Since the park is closed during the week, we had the chance to pick up hours in different departments such as housing or accommodation for example. After having cleaned employee housing for about 2 weeks, I was really annoyed by it, so I changed my department and my friends and me signed up for Sandcastle Suites. Thank you Nick for having given us the opportunity to work for you. Every day was a fun filled day! We made beds and folded towels for the hotels. So much fun if you have the right friends with you!

 

Halloweekends meant also saying goodbye to Mantis on the 19th of October due to its transformation into the floorless coaster Rougarou. Quite every employee took his or her chance to take their last stand before Mantis was closed. We used our breaks or the weekend before closing. Marketing handed out buttons to every rider on the 19th of October, which was a pretty nice idea. By now, you can find some of these buttons on Ebay! They should be worth more money in a couple of years I think.

 

Every crew ordered Hoodies with the ride logo on it and the crew’s names on its back. Since I was part of Magnum as my home ride and cross trained on Top Thrill Dragster, I have both of their crew hoodies and every time I wear them I feel so proud to have been part of the crew that ran these rides!

 

I also went to different food places and the Cinema to see an American horror movie. The one you should definitely check out the next time you get to Sandusky is Chet and Matt’s. It’s a local Pizza place, which is so delicious! It’s family owned and they offer a Buffet in the evening if you’re interested in trying different things there! Their pizza bread is so good. You should get the Cinnamon Pizza for dessert. One of the classics there!

 

During my time at Cedar Point, I got to know many coaster enthusiasts that came visiting the park all the time! It was so nice to see people coming to the park every weekend and welcoming you as if you were part of their family! I met an older couple that has the same passion for Top Thrill Dragster as I do. When I’m as old as they are, I still want to ride that coaster! There were many other friends that made my summer unique! Some of them even got me presents such as seasonings from their family’s company!

 

We did another lift walk which was so much different to the one I did when I processed in. The reason why it was so different was the weather! It was so windy on that day! Walking up a 205 feet tall lift hill when it's really windy is definitely an experience

 

I hope you had fun reading this update! Now it's time to enjoy my photos!

Awesome report again, Marcel!

 

Love the food photos...I will have to check out the pizza place the next time we visit the park. Other than the Thirsty Pony, TGIFriday's and Famous Dave's, I haven't been to too many restaurants near Cedar Point.

 

Nice shots from Magnum too...while I love coasters, I would probably be terrified to climb up or down that lift hill!
