Which coaster usually craps the bed during the day, if any? Let me guess, TTD? In other words, is there a Ka at the park (get on the ride at park opening type)?


Absolutely, it's not a question "if" Dragster goes down it's "when." If you see it running at opening immediately go ride it.

Exactly the reason why it's only one of two credits at Cedar Point I don't have, the other being Wilderness Run. And I've been to Cedar Point twice (Coastermania 2016 and 2018) If you ride it, you're lucky!

Also, more importantly, what should I ride last; the one that's going to give me a headache. I have a feeling that it's going to be Corkscrew.

It's funny. Only a month after the CP and KI trip, I'm going on my 100 coasters in 7 days excursion. I'm still ironing out details. If anyone is wondering, I have a ton of leave that I've saved, and want to use a week for this trip. If I don't use a certain amount before year's end, I lose it. Losing leave =FAIL.

Yeah, good move. I have the same setup at work, so I end up taking a couple of trips usually.

Others are correct about TTD. Ride Corkscrew last; it's the only genuinely bad coaster there. Also, you can't ride Wilderness Run unless you have a child with you.

Or you could be a complete credit whore and ask Town Hall for a pass to ride. But only if you care that much about creds; you're better off getting re-rides on Vengeance, the Intamins, Raptor or Magnum.

I would put a travel day in between Cedar Point and Kings Island. It takes about 4 hours to get there. We usually will hit the park in the evening the day we get to Kings Island and then a full day the next day.

Ah, I didn't know that! Think I'll miss that cred until next year. I'll take my youngest daughter then. She probably still will be just under 54 inches next year. This year is for me! Haven't done it in I don't know how long.

That's actually not a bad idea. The second day at CP wil be reride and flat day. Maybe get done about 3, then head to KI, for what's left of the evening if any, then start there the next morning.
