And the other Roadway Inn is beyond terrible. Waaaay worse than the other was. The staff I met were nice as hell, but it's a straight up dump. If you were being paid to stay there, I'd still go elsewhere.


The Rodeway Inn that's now the Wolf Inn was closed by the city a couple years ago because a room was found literally caked in dog crap and they had repeated calls for illegal activities. I doubt that the owners (who appear to have rebranded with the intent of getting confused guests who thought they were staying at the Great Wolf Lodge) have changed their tune much.



Ummmm.....ok, I concede THAT may actually be grosser than dead Mayflies in your hair. Gross.

I echo this for my own personal preferences. We wouldn't go to Cedar Point as often as we do if it weren't for the Resort/Hotel aspect. Staying on the peninsula for a couple days makes it seem a little more like a vacation than a typical park visit. We even take a slow silent lap around the park after closing and no one has ever said anything. After that, we either have ice cream or a night cap by the fire pits on the beach to close out our tiresom day. The next morning, we wake up early, have a quick workout, grab a simple breakfast at Perkins, and enjoy a walk along the beach with our Stabucks Coffee. We love our perfect unspoken formula. All of that is what makes Cedar Point different and special for us. The two things we don't live without at CP are Fast Lane Plus passes and Breakers. For us, it's 110% worth it for the 8 hour drive.

At the very least, I really recommend cutting out some vanities in your life and setting the extra saved money aside for Fast Lane Plus on one day. But, if you're looking to do the trip on a tight budget outside of my suggestions, this thread has a plethera of expert advice. Good people. Good advice. This place is an excellent resource.

If CP does go for a 500ft coaster I bet it’ll replace wicked twister and be similar to what BGW is rumored to get. Rocking launch into a second set of LSMs into the spike.

Yummy! I just ate donkey!

Fast Lane changes for 2020, GateKeeper and Valravn have been dropped from Fast Lane Plus, while Millennium Force has been added. Also, Cadillac Cars, Lake Erie Eagles, Monster, and Troika have been removed from Fast Lane altogether.

It’s nice to see that they finally bumped Gatekeeper. That made no sense anyway.

Still, regular Fastlane is dumb and I don’t get why anyone would buy it ever.
