Yep, that's exactly what I'm waiting for to book my trip as well. I can only go once a year so FLP is worth it. I'd love to be able to ride Steel Vengeance today, but I'm willing to wait a few weeks if it means that I can ride it many more times and spend less hours in line.

Favorite restaurants around Sandusky? I'm already planning to head to Bay Harbor for dinner one night.

Is there any type of side entrance to enter / leave the park during the middle of the day from Breakers Hotel, or need to go through the front?

Assume water rides will be open throughout the park after Memorial Day given that the waterpark is open?


Sandusky restaurant: We like Brick Oven Bistro as someone else has mentioned. Also Famous Dave's on the point at the marina is a good option and there is an entrance into/out of the park under Valravn.

Side entrance: The resort entrance (G6 on the map) comes in right by Magnum's station. It's good if you are in the north end of Breakers and/or your early entry target is towards the back (ie Steel Vengeance). There is also the beach entrance (H11 on the map) which can be a good option if you are in the south end of the resort and/or your early entrance target is towards the south end of the park (ie. Gatekeeper or Valravn).

Water rides: Not 100% on water rides but I would assume they are open from this weekend given the weather is definitely warming up. Perhaps someone else knows. I actually haven't ridden any of them in all my visits as it always seems to be too cold and my daughter seems to have a distaste for them....maybe this year though.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

when we stayed at Breakers, we WAY more often used the Beach Entrance (by Windseeker), because we were in the South Wing.


there's also an entrance by Blue Streak/ValRavn that goes to the Marina. . if you wanted to step out of the park for Famous Dave's for BBQ lunch.

Airboss wrote:Agreed with El Toro Ryan. I guess the question is: would you rather have a 30 second longer ride cycle, due to stacking with three trains, or a 30 minute longer line due to limited dispatches because they are running 2 trains? Of course those numbers are just estimates, but I would rather spend an extra couple of seconds on the brake run than many dozen extra minutes in line.


Or slow the lift hill to get a longer cycle time out of the station, so you aren't spending time in the brake run, you're spending time on the lift where most people'd barely notice a change. And they wouldn't care. And if you're running one or two trains, run full speed to get trains back as fast as possible.

When I was there for Coastermania the weekend after Memorial Day, all the water rides were open except Shoot the Rapids.

Steel Vengeance broke down for about 10 minutes today. Looked like the final brake run stopped the train before it could hit the drive tires. Two mechanics literally walked behind the train and gave it a push. We were on the ride about 5 minutes later. Seems like the new brakes might be working a little too well.

Man, I was really hoping that RMC would have the bugs worked out of Steel Veng by now.

Come on... *crosses fingers for next week*
