Photo TR: Cedar Point - New coaster track and scenic shots!


Recommended Posts

Kids were getting antsy to get back to the Point - so with not much going on this weekend we decided to go up Sun-Mon. Since we renewed our Season Passes for 2016 we were eligible for free Fast Lane Plus for any non-Saturday any one day the rest of 2015 - so we took advantage of that. Crowds were out of control large Sunday - Fast Lane actually sold out! Last time I saw that was Opening Day with Gatekeeper...

 

Anyway, we got there at open, beat the crowds and used FL+ until about 2 PM - then head out to hit the pool at Breakers Express and to check out some coaster track! There was actually a line of cars 1/3 way down the causeway, 3 lanes wide when we left!

 

The "brown" portion of the new track really changed colors depending on the angle of the sun and if it were in the sun or shade - anywhere from a chocolate brown to a bronze. I'm more worried about how it rides than the color scheme but it was sure neat to check out. There was a 6' chain link fence around the area - with no signs or anything. I took a few shots from our room and the rest by zooming in through the fence or holding my camera above.

 

We head back in the park later that evening after hitting Chet and Matt's wing and pizza buffet to get some more rides in. By this time Millennium Force Fast Lane wait was 45 minutes! We also stuck around for Maverick pass holder ERT. It went down about 20 mins in so we called it a night.

 

Since I had my camera for the coaster track pics I set my alarm for 6 AM to try for some more sunrise shots. Had a nice pinkish hue this time and glad I woke up a bit early - though I'm about to nod off writing this trip report...

 

So hope you enjoy!

We had a nice view from our room at Breakers Express!

I hope they don't have to remove too many trees for Valravn.
