:lol: I mean, obviously I went in expecting insane PR-speak but I’m still in awe.

Maybe it's not just a Cedar Point thing. Check out Surf Dog's description on the Kings Island page. Link

"Surf Dog is the roller coaster that provides all the feels. The one that dreams are made of."

And then at Michigan's Adventure you have Big Dipper. Link

"Everyone needs a dream. A reason to shoot for the stars. But in order to reach your dream, you have to train. Likewise, before future roller coaster enthusiasts drop from unheard-of heights at mind-bending speeds here at Michigan’s Adventure, they need to train on a starter ride like our Big Dipper."

Well I guess I'm not going to bed for a while. These are gold!

Cedar Point has confirmed the 2019 early entry lineup which (I believe) is unchanged.

Is the "And please, no running!" note new?

Cedar Point is one of the few parks I've visited where I've never seen the employees discourage people from sprinting/running.

It is the same. https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog/2018-early-entry-rides

Does Raptor ever open a little early? I'm pretty sure I rode Maverick, Millennium Force, Valravn, and Raptor in that order during early entry on my first day last year. I can't imagine it took me an hour to ride Maverick, MF, and Valravn once each, which were all walk-on or less than 5 minute wait. The second day I just lapped Maverick over and over during ERT, as it is the best coaster in the park. :lol:

IIRC Raptor is the #1 ride to replace another ride for Early Entry if the other is under maintenance or otherwise unavailable.

Yeah, Raptor started out as a stand-in for other rides last year and then it basically just started opening early every day regardless. It was never official though.

It's a safety thing. Too many people were so concerned with being first in line for Steel Vengeance that they forgot to secure their cell phones and virginity within a I0ckR.

^ I felt so bad last year for the parents that just wanted to get to Camp Snoopy when the Steel Vengeance stampede came by.

Raptor used to be on standby for early entry back in 2017 when I was running early entry.

On weekends and peak days the ride would open for everyone. Most weekdays they kept the ride down until official opening but if one of the other EE rides was down for the day, they would replace it with raptor.
