Great report! Maybe Camden Park just desensitized me but I didn't find Cedar Point's bathrooms bad at all.

Awesome! I agree on Melt, Fast Lane Plus, and all encounters. Don't know what's up with Lake Erie this year, but the bugs are outrageous. Of course, that made the spiders in Steel Vengeance's queue quite happy, but most of the humans in that queue didn't take that as an improvement.

First time I've ever been called an expert at the Flyers! Honestly, I just got lucky a few times at the beginning of my cycle. For my money, Laura was pretty much ruling the skies.

I've been on Cosmotron several times, and it's always been a mix of modern and classic pop music. Well, on this day, they went full on metal. Was not expecting that!

Andy in the perfect place at the perfect time. Nice fake smile Franklin!!!

That is the face of a broken man!

From Cedar Point...

PKI Jizzman wrote:I found a row I liked in the middle of Magnum's train, but too close to the front or back and it's an uncomfortable ride.

I rode Magnum twice, both in the same row. The first ride was awesome, the second ride (the next day) was horrible. As I've heard said before, there are tricks for Magnum, but they're never guaranteed to actually work.

PKI Jizzman wrote:The glaring issue now - the bathrooms. Coped from my initial post in August:
Dear lord they're stinky, messy, old, don't have paper towels, no hot/cold water option, and some don't even have doors to keep in air conditioning in or keep the bugs out (!!!!). It's not just a "needs cleaning more often" issue. I really hope they concentrate on this part of the park soon. I'm not sure if this hasn't been addressed yet because of the plumbing beneath + sand and how difficult that might be I have no idea about the level of difficulty there. Of all the parks on the trip and the parks I've visited in recent memory, I can't think of a worse example. They're on Ukrainian Village grungy dive bar levels.

Thirded. They're long past due to dump some money into this!

SV was so 6 hours ago, let's start the day on the front row of TTD

That was really funny, just walking past TTD and seeing you two up front and basically nobody else anywhere near the ride.

And that's it!

But wait, you forgot the part where your flight got cancelled and you somehow ended up with the coolest chauffeur in all of Ohio!

OK, now that's it!

THIS IS TRUE haha. My first canceled flight! Thankfully Andy hadn't left Cleveland yet and his place is less than an hour to my parent's place. Huuuuuge save by Andy!
