  2. http://www.wkyc.com/features/man-rides-mean-streak-16000-times-at-cedar-point/319354840 A nice article on Mean Streak Henry.
  3. http://www.wkyc.com/features/what-will-happen-to-all-that-mean-streak-wood-at-cedar-point/315488209 Not a surprise, coaster wood is generally not for home use.
  4. https://www.cedarpoint.com/things-to-do/the-great-pumpkin-fest This year the kids activities during halloweekends will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown." The main highlight is a brand new parade!
  5. Beach gate was completely rebuilt when WindSeeker was put in. The previous Beach gate is where WindSeeker currently stands.
  6. My head hurts trying to figure out how this is logical or even has the possibility of being successful.
  7. Gemini also has one of the best head chopper effects in the park. The coaster has been their for 39 seasons, and yet people still duck.
  8. http://www.meadvilletribune.com/news/local_news/conneaut-lake-park-s-kiddie-pool-water-slide-set-to/article_e54bf72c-5a95-11e6-b477-5f1ffad8fdc0.html More on water slide reopening.
  9. At Cedar Point, we are Screamsters not scareactors. Other wise good write-up.
  10. All repairs done, all operations and hours normal tomorrow 8/1. One exception is resorts, they will reopen at 4pm.
  11. https://www.cedarpoint.com/what-s-new/park-statement Sunday July 31st, Soak City CLOSED and NO Early Entry. Park is scheduled to open at 10. This is the current status as of 2:45 am.
  12. More cheerleading puff type piece. http://www.sharonherald.com/opinion/editorials/conneaut-lake-park-on-an-uphill-swing/article_583fca43-9a65-5198-8e01-54d5b67b4d1a.html
  13. CLP is 10 miles from interstate 79 via US 322/6 most of which is 4 lane.
  14. https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog-article/online-fun/Iron-Dragon-in-Virtual-Reality For those who want to experience Iron Dragon VR.
  15. Hotel Breakers has free parking with In/out privileges as much as you want. Breakers Express gets parking only with a ticket package and is subject to normal parking regulations. Late august has slightly lighter crowds as Ohio goes back to school. However Michiganers and residents of Ontario have learned this and take their vacations during this time.
  16. Besides the ones already mentioned, Raptor, Rougarou, maXair, and Skyhawk also have test seats. At 5 ft 6in you should not have any leg room issues (I'm 5-6 as well) however -3 seats on Magnum, Gemini and Mine Ride give a bit of a tight fit for legs.
  17. Tiki Twirl, Cad Cars and Power Tower (if you can here anything over the air tanks) still have auto spiel .
  18. Ferry service starts Sunday. Departs Sandusky at 9 am, departs CP 7:25 pm. Service is Sunday-Friday (No Saturday trips). Extra Friday night service July-August 12. https://jet-express.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/2016JetSchedule_finalweb.pdf
  19. Yes, Ravine Flyer 2 is one of the best wooden coasters out there. Comet is a wonderful "junior" coaster and Steel Dragon is a fun little ride. Two awesome dark atractions (one ride and one walk through) with all the tricks and effect working. Also a nice collection of flat rides to please. Waldameer has free parking, free admission to the grounds (either pay per ride or get a wristband), and you can bring your own lunch and drinks into the park, thus making budgeting easier.
  20. Indeed, they have a fine collection of smaller, family parks.
  21. Welcome to the club for those who enjoy Mean Streak, we are few yet we exist! Then there are some of us who find it one of the best in the park.
  22. NWS Storm report for Sunday June 5th, 2016 http://www.weather.gov/cle/event_20160605_severe A microburst with 70-80mph straight line winds was the culprit.
