Negative, I live here currently and the forecast was beautiful for the whole weekend. I was pleasantly surprised as well at the crowd level!

I came here for the season and worked a management internship. Then I switched to doing a few other things for the park and that has wrapped up. I've been spending a little free time to play in the park before heading home! It's been an experience I'll never forget!

It looks as if all the classic arcade games in the Coliseum arcade have been sold off. This includes all the classic pinball machines like Hercules.

They were all put up for auction, and it ended on the 2nd. This is a real bummer for me. I must have spent hundreds of $$$ on rainy days on those games. Curious to see what they replace them with. I always thought that this space would be perfect for a dark ride of some kind.


That is sad. They had a decent selection of vintage video games and pinball (even though the machines were not that well maintained). Looks like I had my last visit this year then. That is a big building in a prime real estate location. Wonder what they will do with it.

Ooof, I'm planning a crazy weekend road trip out this weekend. How bad is it? We'll be at the park all day Saturday, having arrived late Friday, and leaving early Sunday (before park open) We're shooting for 90 minute waits on Non-SteVe flagship coasters. As long as we can get on MF, TTD, Steel Vengeance, Maverick, and Magnum we'll be happy.

We could have spent hours in there, playing the games and such.

Hope that something(s) just as interesting takes their place(s).


I just played it in August too.


but the truth is most of the classic pinball games along the back were broken when I was just there.

who knows? maybe the back end of the arcade could be made into a walkthru or dark ride of some sort (something CP really needs)

I am waiting to hear how bad last weekend was. . I would say the waits will be near what bill posted last week. The weather is cooling down this weekend but really will not help on Saturday. The best bet is to try to get rides in Friday if you have time.

It'e been over 7 years since I was last at Cedar Point so my buddy and I are heading over next weekend. We're staying at Express Hotel and are getting FL+ for Saturday so we will have early entry too. Would it be wise to spend Friday night at the park as well to get some rides in as I have seen how bad weekends can get or can we get a majority done with FL+ alone on Saturday.

The website says that you can just add a 2nd day for $23. Might just be worth it for extra rides and less stress on Saturday!

Friday night for sure. There's so much to do at this park that even with FL+ you're going to be pushing it to get everything in.

^That is actually quite smart. I think I would prefer this location over the previous one that is on the back of the seat in front of me (which can be quite far away in certain rows). I hope this works out for them and hopefully Cedar Point and other RMCs follow suit.
