Loved the photo TR Matt! I really enjoyed some of the pictures you took, especially the one of the Corkscrew train passing over the midway.

Hello Fellow Kiwis

As a Kiwi planning his first trip to Kings Island and Cedar Point next year, I really loved your trip report... Unfortunately, I couldn't join the TPR trip, due to bad timing on my part, but planning a solo trip, your trip report makes me look forward to it even more.

I pray for the coaster gods for short queues and great weather...

I donut like this custom title :(

Seems like you had a good time! With I could have done the Texas/Midwest trip, but I didn't have the money or the time.

Thank you for the great story!

I have lived in the area for 35 yeas now. Cedar Point is truly a real gem!

Unfortunately it has it's issues. The Skyhawk problem was season long. They had only half of it up and running for part of the year. Something pretty important broke, from what they tell us.

I agree about the Fast lane passes, the lines can be really large some days.

I am the Talent Team Leader for Zombie High School for Halloweekends, so I get to see some of the backstage things too. It is really neat to get behind the scenes of such an amazing park. I am glad that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to your next one! I would love to come by when you are there next time!

P.S. That hidden gem of a building(The Ballroom) over the arcade, is the Screamsters' home during Halloweekends where it is officially referred to as "Haunt Central."

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great report, but there was a serious lack of T.G.I. Fridays ;)

Cedar Point does have its flaws, but they are pretty few and far between. I really struggle between Millennium Force and Maverick as to which one I prefer. Great pics.
