    Have to agree with you there. We went last week even though we did ride it during passholder preview night, but that was only one ride, so we had to go back. It blows every other coaster I've ridden away. But with that being said, I honestly feel that KI is the better park, friendlier staff and just an all around better vibe. CP has always been my favorite for their coasters and I grew up in Detroit and went every year, but now I'm in Kentucky and KI is much closer and has stolen .y heart.

    I grew up 15 minutes from KI and went there for many years. My father got his job transferred to Cleveland. I think Cedar Point is a way more enjoyable experience. You don’t have to deal with the annoying middle school gangs, and the people are a lot less self entitled I guess you can say (besides Fast Lane). The food is better at KI, but Cedar Point has gotten a lot better the last few years. As long as you don’t go on a saturday, you can pretty much get everything done. I don’t even care about riding much just because Steel Vengeance is so much better than any ride in the park. I try to get at least 2 rides a trip. I usually get 3 and I have 13 rides on it in 5 trips. I used to like KI better, but now it just seems like child’s play compared to Cedar Point.

    It's been a few years since I was at the Friday night of CP's closing weekend, but I don't remember the crowds being exceptionally bad. They're likely heavier than Halloweekends opening weekend, but nothing stands out as being exceptionally bad. Saturday will likely be INSANE, with the causeway likely being modified via cones to have all but one lane being for traffic heading into Cedar Point. When I go to Halloweekends, I usually stick around for early entry and leave, if I even stay that long.

    i mean Kings Island crowds not Cedar Point lol. I said i am coming FROM Cleveland.

  3. Well Cedar Point was a disaster today. The entire main lot was 100% full and the overflow lot was about 80%. Fastlane was $150 and Maverick's Fastland queue was out the gate and wrapped around and almost into frontier inn. Millennium Force had a 3 hour wait at one point; it also had its Fast Lane queue full. GateKeeper, Valravn, and Wicked Twister were full queues. The All Wheels Exteme show was 100% full which is super rare. Overall it was an awful day to be at the park. Food lines actually weren't bad. Atleast the weather was nice...

    Tomorrow is my first trip to CP in probably 20 years. What's the best order to ride without doubling back much? I'd like to be close to the place that has the perch sandwich for lunch around 11 or 4 before I leave.


    For ERT go to Millennium Force, then Maverick, then get in line for Dragster since it opens at 10. Then just ride do whatever. The rides at the front of the park don't have big lines usually in the afternoon.

    Awesome video. This project is looking like one heck of a ride. Wondering what records this will break? CP seems to do that with every installation. Any thoughts, ideas?

    Tallest fastest and longest hybrid, most hybrids, most steel track in 1 park, most overall track in 1 park, most coasters over 200ft, And some other sketchy marketing stuff

    So normal day at CP, just less people.  

    Winds are forecast to be a bit less than today and it didn't seem to impact ops.   Might try and get a short visit in Sunday.  

    Things started to open up the 2nd half of the day. The only notable things were gemini and magnum didn't even test. Probably not cleared by the state.

  7. I was prepared for ejector airtime like most GCI's so I was very underwhelmed with the ride. I rode Gold Striker a couple weeks ago so I have a good benchmark for how a good gci feels. This felt a lot more like a family coaster and not a top 3 in the park. Im going to try again today and maybe I will get a better row.
