Cedar Point Opening Day & Rougarou Media Photo Trip Report


Recommended Posts

This year we were able to attend the media event for rougarou and opening weekend at cedarpoint. I really don't like to write up huge trip reports, so I will simplify this with pictures and key points.

 

The good.....

 

1.Rougarou was great...huge improvement and very forceful coaster

2.Sweet spot had lot's of goodies

3.Hotel breakers is looking good

4.Lakeside pavilion looks wonderful

5. Millennium force is now sporting fiberglass trains.

6. Mavericks new restraints are a big improvement.

7. The park has added more coke freestyle machines

8. The staff seems really friendly this year

 

The bad....

 

1.It was very obvious that the park was not ready to open.

2 Wicked twister was in pieces still

3.Lots of rides never opened, or if they did it was late.

4. Tiki twirl never opened.

5. 3/4 of the pools at hotel breakers did not open because they accidently put too many chemicals into them. This is from a company that operates several waterparks and hotels with pools.

6. A lot of prices and menus were from last year and not updated.

 

Onto the pictures....

Rougarou has a few effects like fog and sounds coming from the swamp

Nice photos! Glad to hear that Rougarou is a great improvement. (Although, we already knew it would be!) Looks like some nice changes at the park for this season! Can't wait to see what the future holds! Thanks for sharing! Getting me super excited for our visit this summer!!

Don't the pools not open up until memorial day anyways?

 

The pools are open every day the hotels are. I've seen lifeguards sitting out watching completely empty pools and beach when it is 40 degrees out and raining in early November.

Even more amazing photos! Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see the next set of photos. Also, very interesting Wicked Twister photos. It's interesting to see the coaster like that. I've always wondered how they got the train on and off the track for the off season.

Nice pictures. That's cool that Cedar Point has its own exclusive beer. More parks should work with local breweries for exclusive beers. I'd order a beer in a park if I knew I couldn't get it anywhere else.

Exactly! That's one of the reasons I love the Springfield expansions at the Universal Parks, It's so cool to be able to get an actual Duff beer

The new quaker steak and lube. We ate there and really enjoyed the wings. They also have rougarou beer.

Nice pics. They really changed the look of that new wing place. Looks nothing like Friday's did and must say it's quite an eye sore. Looks a lot like Disaster Transport!

 

The food was great, but it seemed like they skimped on the building. The inside looks like tgif took down all the pictures from the wall, and the new place put some of there own up. They even had holes from the old pictures all over the walls.

I'm surprised that the Rougabrew is in glass bottles in the park, I'd thought it would be on draft. Also Quaker Steak & Lube is a horrible name for a restaurant - I guess its a chain in the Northeast, but why they have "Lube" in the name is beyond me.

They do have it on draft in the park and other locations. The bottles were more for display purposes. It looks like you can buy the bottles of the beer in Cleveland where it is brewed. Check out the brewery website here.....

The "lube" part of the name is from the term "getting lubed" I believe as they have a bar as well. The chain started out as a repair garage/ gas station and they opened a food stand next to the garage that really took off.
