10/19/19: Cedar Point closed for capacity

Recommended Posts

Cedar Point just announced on Twitter that the park is nearing capacity and that the causeway and chaussee are both closed to incoming traffic. Incoming guests are invited to return tomorrow or next weekend.

TBH, not too shocked. I went about a month ago and it was crazier than I have ever seen any park, Halloweekends already got packed at Cedar Point and now you have a shiny new $99 Gold Pass boosting crowds even further (though even had they not done Gold Pass the park would still be PACKED today- people seem to love the Haunt events). Even a 10% boost or something from Gold Passes would drive the park to capacity, based on previous years. Plus it is very, very nice today. May and June next year may also see a slight attendance bump from Gold Pass, but at least those months were not crazy crowded to begin with like August-October have become.

Heck, from what I have heard today Kings Island is very crowded as well (my sister is there without me ATM- there was no room in the car for me to come). Banshee is apparently a 90 minute wait. I have not seen a line for it that long since Opening Day 2014!

Just wait until the first year CP still has the gold passes and announces a new coaster.   Some random buzzing I'm hearing from CP speculation is that 2021 might be that year.

I though last Saturday would be there really big day, from it being on Columbus Day weekend.  The main midway web cam looks packed!

Between watching CP and KI webcams today, my jaw has remained agape. 

I don't think good googly moogly adequately describes this.

At 2 when we left the parking lot (at least the party that was open) was filled all the over to the exit by Soak City. Imagine passing $20 and then having to walk a mile plus to get to the gate.

One has to wonder when the "cheap" prices and "5 months free" giveaways that have caused this recent influx will turn the other way and people not renew because of crowds....then wait to see what they give away....
