Photo TR - Cedar Point opening HalloWeekends 18

Love the transition of the park for HalloWeekends, though it does signify the end of Summer... Weather was fantastic and fall-like both days. Saturday was crowded as expected on a nice Saturday during HalloWeekends (also the PointFest concert going on that evening). I planned ahead though - the kids used some of their front of the line passes from their past Plinko wins and I took a bunch of pictures. In fact I don't think I rode anything Saturday - which is probably a first for me to be at the park at not ride anything - well I did ride Sky Ride and the train if those count.

 

Kids are not into haunted houses yet - so no insight for you there (sorry) though we did check out a few shows that were enjoyable - I especially liked the last act of the Midnight Syndicate show - very well done (and kinda creepy).

 

Sunday was like that dream day at the park - low, low crowds and beautiful weather! Got lots of rides in as everything was a near walk-on - even the big 4 were no more than 10-15 min waits! Anyway onto the pics!

 

Thanks for looking!

Some rides just won't die.

Is there an ACE event here today? (I kid, I kid)

IMG_7418_edited-1.thumb.JPG.e868f259aac3fe6b6ddf5cc999c915e1.JPG

Been a while since I rode this one - but it's so iconic over the midway!

IMG_7421.thumb.JPG.9f54cedb051ef243c0de2d95e002f998.JPG

The gargoyles were out for HalloWeekends!

IMG_7422_edited-1.thumb.JPG.f4ae0145397985a5fe50ef63a4f6af52.JPG

This guy was new - doing some very clunky "dancing" in the main midway.

Count Chuckula

Someone woke the giant sleeping ogre - he always draws a crowd.

IMG_7449.thumb.JPG.4f85d5c4304ed2b784ec4d862e1c28d1.JPG

This guy was new and hanging out near some other new attractions for the little ones.

IMG_7456.thumb.JPG.0f0efdbad6424a315a56eff31f644027.JPG

Pony rides? At Cedar Point? Yes!

IMG_7462.thumb.JPG.75477364d0245f0a94aae64af98900ce.JPG

Well this picture is 1/2 true.

IMG_7465.thumb.JPG.5710a5cc1a930fe088a5ebc34d7affa6.JPG

Dorney Park would be offended.

IMG_7471.thumb.JPG.7984600ea0ce966cfbaa62335ffe3b62.JPG

Love the cool little details they put into the tombstones.

IMG_7477.thumb.JPG.d5ab613b587c013e29462827a3eb57b9.JPG

Nice decorations throughout the park (though the giant pumpkin is fake)

IMG_7482.thumb.JPG.6115dd1a82b46c7bca19f58df205462f.JPG

Gatekeeper station - it's still there.

IMG_7483.thumb.JPG.4c9612589517491da9776c2322aeae2f.JPG

Pretty, puffy clouds, and crowds with long-sleeves and pants - it's that time of year again.

IMG_7484.thumb.JPG.c469a4e4067dbd5d2b3a29dae8239b40.JPG

Just a picture perfect day (pun intended)

IMG_7485.thumb.JPG.b684daf1a22fcce40873905b145da9c2.JPG

New haunt - Hexed - I just know there is a big, green witch in there.

IMG_7498.thumb.JPG.c975d5aa79231493a70901e909a63133.JPG

The Buccaneer Band played some Halloween inspired tunes for all to enjoy.

One of the best ride names ever- The Giant Wheel

Stopped in Lusty Lil's to check out Spooky Shenanigans

IMG_7607.thumb.JPG.90645f687900525ce711cb18f1e50621.JPG

Fun little show - if you liked Young Frankenstein you'll like their little homage to it during the show.

New scare zone setup as you head towards Maverick's entrance

What are you looking at?

IMG_7508_edited-1.thumb.JPG.a56a0421a7397981fd9720721b0f9c98.JPG

Some weird horse skeleton props - they bounce around creepily if you push them.

IMG_7614.thumb.JPG.69452e7b51cfae777caa2cf7fa17fca6.JPG

This is what happens to you if you ride Mean Streak one too many times.

IMG_7617_edited-1.thumb.JPG.c6fa92549c7f4329a628378f84c97535.JPG

Some new theming and a balcony was added to the old Frontier Town Sky Ride station.

IMG_7621.thumb.JPG.2bf3d99059a4b2a608fda2d1c610a1b6.JPG

Lots of clever names for the deceased.

IMG_7626.thumb.JPG.4bd42cb244e08d1b5663bc341bcf4879.JPG

Picnic in the park.

IMG_7635.thumb.JPG.e244e169e7df1a79cc8e7237cffc9709.JPG

Here's a clue to who will be on that balcony later...

Why not turn a raft ride into a haunted walk-through.

IMG_7644.thumb.JPG.16045f9c16c35879b3a82ec9b7f9d61d.JPG

You are entering Maniacal Mechanical ScreamWorks when you see this.

IMG_7649.thumb.JPG.7b1ff30e858c84ccc3a02d8021a6745a.JPG

Some nice attention to detail around the park.

IMG_7651.thumb.JPG.26b2a78a846042ad5eb41e6544797104.JPG

Another googly-eyed skeleton.

Get it? Last Thrill.... nevermind.

Magnum pulling out of the station.

Spending the night here - nothing like a short walk to your room after a long day.

IMG_7669.thumb.JPG.605befe28c8a192846c25a43ac23feb8.JPG

Oh, and the views? Lovely! (Request Breakers Tower, top floors, park side - you won't be disappointed)

IMG_7670.thumb.JPG.256d377166605b5fb5486e37b78e7f05.JPG

Love just staring out the window and watching the rides.

IMG_7672.thumb.JPG.fac4734ae0f06e35f7bb42b90eb7c57d.JPG

Dat hill.

Wonder where the script M logo comes from? There's your answer.

Will this part of the skyline look different soon?

Taking it ALL in!

If you like over-banked turns, MF has 'em.

IMG_7693.thumb.JPG.c9006c9ebbffce9aeddfc392202a6fef.JPG

Someone has arrived to unleash the screamsters...

IMG_7700.thumb.JPG.19c34e2df1f932f57bfb17006d2174f3.JPG

Watching the lighting package on the Giant Wheel never gets old.

IMG_7718.thumb.JPG.719d21e21870fb0b18c2948a9ba4641f.JPG

Seems like it's been there forever and it's just finishing its sophomore year!

Trashcans make great tripods.

IMG_7731.thumb.JPG.7d7e67f00a0c52b90e85bf40eeb085b4.JPG

There's our clunky dancer... still going...

IMG_7734.thumb.JPG.76e0e22e87cbb539fafeed391d1db187.JPG

Checked out this new show.

IMG_7736.thumb.JPG.f982b140fcac7440ebd930d7b36825c1.JPG

They did a great job with the set - looked great.

IMG_7740.thumb.JPG.fd7a538051a32e009b63f987145f0ab9.JPG

Loved the theming.

IMG_7741.thumb.JPG.fe3b76417b4e2947e0b45e57bce1930d.JPG

I'm not sure what type of satanic songs she was singing.

Keyboard solo!

Shot side in motion.

IMG_7757.thumb.JPG.0c80a2bc41995af94c1e6a9a55047a28.JPG

Love how the station lights reflect off the interior lining.

IMG_7759.thumb.JPG.ad68d3de2ebd1192aee72c4377be05ad.JPG

Self-explanatory.

IMG_7765.thumb.JPG.71fe8ac5b7578418a07d6000b7b20edf.JPG

Super Himalaya at night (I had to check the website for its name - shame on me)

IMG_7775.thumb.JPG.9ab923f2479749b851ca90c1154efce1.JPG

The gazebo representing Halloween.

IMG_7778.thumb.JPG.d73d790c1683b3643778541d1be44622.JPG

This shot turned out creepier than I thought.

IMG_7787.thumb.JPG.e400a4f074878f90fdd199db3c060479.JPG

The appropriately names Monster giving some night rides.

IMG_7800.thumb.JPG.fa368f5e8f308772cf195389042bc0ab.JPG

I watched this worker go all way down those stairs to press the start button - really - he has to press a button!

IMG_7815.thumb.JPG.8984375c41b8f1b561ed4b5fbd8deed9.JPG

Another beautiful day - and yes TTD was running!

IMG_7816.thumb.JPG.ed1fd3df3bf69f5ccfb66a108f3ce2fd.JPG

Some fall decorations near TTD's station.

Dragster parking only.

No rollback this time...

IMG_7849.thumb.JPG.af476c9a2e4ff9b69667ce4503026532.JPG

Plenty of folks were taking their last stands.

IMG_7851.thumb.JPG.25b9bbd6a8b1b54cda3badb85b331b39.JPG

Evil, plastic, red-eyed horses!

IMG_7853.thumb.JPG.4dca02dc16a3cf2e9cd08442ed04e215.JPG

This guy was juggling - if you couldn't tell.

IMG_7855.thumb.JPG.72b8060885f071662db86c79e21103a9.JPG

Will there be something else going on where this ride once stood?

IMG_7864.thumb.JPG.7c1623d79e17a33aa8706c0bcd59ca08.JPG

This is why I lug my camera around the park all day.

IMG_7869.thumb.JPG.cabb396b6282860747d47711ece04659.JPG

Giant jack-o-lanterns are awaiting you.

IMG_7874.thumb.JPG.9c4fe67ba77446e126914cb66f177d16.JPG

Still love what they did to the front entrance.

Keyholing over some pumpkins.

IMG_7895.thumb.JPG.979852e9474ea5bd72ad27689187ac27.JPG

They are rather large.

Some more theming

IMG_7903.thumb.JPG.e25d8ffce60486a87d40d596c7fa821b.JPG

Sky Ride fail

IMG_7904.thumb.JPG.3e2b392138479a1177f004f7ea4b4a7f.JPG

Aren't they cute?

IMG_7905.thumb.JPG.2405052e9e7cc9b1a50824691467a70d.JPG

Really nice attention to detail.

IMG_7908.thumb.JPG.eea4ed7c2b052f4cdcdce37b795e645b.JPG

An old favorite indoor dark ride (will another be on the way?)

IMG_7912.thumb.JPG.472b9be2a1be91ede7ef2787d39a37ed.JPG

Creepy little witch.

IMG_7915.thumb.JPG.25f85983ffe8c93b2a7a63d175eefc24.JPG

I thought that was a TPR tour bus at first...

Draggin' Iron, I mean Iron Dragon

IMG_7922.thumb.JPG.8761264f200ee1eacbc9acad8de9ce11.JPG

It was fun (and bizarre) to see so many people posing for pics in front of this sign.

IMG_7931.thumb.JPG.aa05dd12bea1bdd259a2a3272276aca0.JPG

Doing a headstand on Mantis - not for much longer thankfully.

And that's all she wrote - thanks for looking!

Nice pics, especially of MF from Hotel Breakers. Honestly, I hope Corkscrew never gets removed. I know it's not a great ride, but it's just so iconic, and I'm real big on traditional and iconic stuff. That's the reason why I have mixed feelings about RMC's reinvention of wooden coasters, but that's a different story.

I feel the same way. The ride looks amazing even though it's pretty painful (an airtime hill on an Arrow Looper with over the shoulder restraints? WTF?). We usually ride it a few times on each visit because it never has a line and I figure we're doing our small part to keep the awful thing around by helping the ridership numbers. lol

 

That being said kids do like this ride, 10-15 years ago before I was so tall I actually really liked it and didn't find the restraints so terrible.
