Raptor- got inline right away, but before i got inline i decided i would try out the test seat. i am a big kid,, o what the hell, i am a fat kid, i was scared i wouldnt fit, well it took sum pushing of a friend to get me in. well i was kinda depresed when the guy at the que told me i should loose avout 50 lbs and come back, but i just blew him off. we waited for exactly 1 hour for raptor, rode 3rd row, outside seat. the ride ops were really rushing, barely gave me anytime, didnt offer any help, well after i was secured in, Raptor *my first B&M Invert, blew me away, was totaly awsome. it is now one of my favorite rides, ran pretty smooth, i loved the G's in thge Helix. (didnt mind the ending) lol. Out of ten i give it a 9.5
The group of 4 i was in then headed to the back of the park, next up was
Corkscrew- short wait, maybe 20 minutes at the most, suprisingly fun, nice air after the loop, really short, but fun. 6.0
we then headed to mean streak, when we got over to the area of mean streak there was a slovakian woman standing there and she said it was closed, I asked her if it would open back up, and she couldnt understand me, so i just said thankyou and walked away. We then headed to find some food, we went to the midway cafe, or sumthing like that, its an all you can eat place, but needless to say, i just had a sald because i was kinda depresed from earlier. we got done eating and it was now 2:30, we only had till 6 o clock before we had to leave. we then headed to
Disaster Transport- it was pretty hot out so we thought it would be a good idead to go in teh A/C and ride siaster transport. well we meet some other chool kids from indiana in the QUE and got to talking with them, joking around about my fatness and excetera. we waited 45 minutes for the crappiest ride ever, i dont know, i didnt enjoy it..i give it a 3.
next my group of 4, plus the group of 3 we meet up with got to talking, and they told me if i was pushing it on raptor, that i shouldnt even try on M/f and Magnum, so we headed over to
Blue Streak-Fun ride. i really enjoyed it, suprizing Air through the whole ride, we waited about 15/20 minutes, good ride, i would deffintly like to ride it again. back to the opp's. go tto the station, and I asked teh lady if she would give me a second so i can make the seatbelt bigg enough for me, and she got all crappy with me and said they were on a tight schedule, so i hurried up and got it done and then she asked me if i needed anything else, and then dispatched the train, how rude, i give B/s a 7.5
we then split are group up one last time, me and 1 other kid meet up with about 20 people from are group for one last ride on raptor ( we scheduled to meet therer at 4) so we waited about 45 minutes for waht turned out to be are last coaster of the day. well we rode same row, but this time the ride op got ****ty with me, when i asked my friend to push the restraint down on me, he said it was against park policy and that if i couldnt pull it down i wouldnt be able to ride, then i explained to him how i was allowed to earlier, and he baicly ignored me and told me to pull my restraint down, wich i magicly got to click, and he buckled me in. well Raptor blew me away once again, totaly awsome, after we got off of for the final time, we headed off to
Wicked Twister, well i went to the test seat and tried it out... well i new it was gona be close, i pulled it down adn i couldnt buckle the belts.... so i called a friend over to help me, when all of a sudden a lady at the Que enternce came over and told me that, waht we were doing wasnt allowed, and we would hafta stop imediatly. i then proceded to ask why? and she ignored me. sp then are group hit the Giant Wheel and then we went home...
So overall i was kinda dissapointed in myself for being fat, but i thought they could of been nicer. but i dont care, i am used to the stuff that happend with being fat. well thanks for listing, coments welcome
I'm sorry to hear about your bad time at CP. You should have reported the incidents to Guest Relations. I'm sure they would have taken action, although it was too late by that point.
If you have a problem with clones, the solution is real simple—Stop traveling.
Sorry to hear you had a bad time, and like Intamanfan said, you should of stopped off at Park Ops. As a former employee of CP I can see where you;re coming from, but at the same time, I also agree with the park. The ride operators could have been much nicer to you (that's for sure)! But when you got into the seat, and your friends had to push the restraints down, that should have been the first clue that you may have issues with riding that specific ride.
It's been CP's policy for awhile now that if you cannot pull down your harness to where we can buckle it, you cannot ride. For obvious safety reasons having someone push down on it so it fits is not the brightest or safest idea.
As for the ride op at Mean Streak? I'm sure she just misheard or misunderstood. With the employees that are International, they MUST have a grasp of the english language to work in Rides.
Other than my 2 cents, I'm sorry you had such a crappy time! :0( Hopefully if you do visit again, you will see that CP is actually a great park to visit...
I went with my mother recently, and she couldn't ride the OTS restraint rides, but she could still ride Magnum.
Now Millenium isn't as tough to fit on as the OTS restraint rides, but it is tighter than Magnum. My mother barely, barely couldn't ride that.
I recommend next time you go definitely ride Magnum, and try the test seat on Millenium Force. You just might be able to ride it, and it's a ride not to be missed!
Take care and God bless!
Anyways, I have trouble fitting on only FoF at KI. Nothing else gives me trouble.

You should have told him to gain 50 IQ points then talk to you again.
