Advice on Cedar Point Please!!

Monday, June 11, 2001 7:11 AM
I am heading up to Cedar Point foir three days starting on the seventeenth. I know that gives me plenty of time to ride everything BUT... how are the waits on the bigger coasters i.e. Millenium Force, raptor, and Mantis. I am not a patient guy... I am used to the nonexistent lines on weekdays at PKI, but I will wait. Any of your advice would be very helpful!!!

MF: 45min-2 hours
MAGNUM 20min-45min
RAPTOR 40min-1 1/4 hour
MANTIS 40min-1 hour
POWER TOWER UP 5min-20min
POWER TOWER DOWN 15min-30min

Remember that the parks estimates in the beginning of the line are about 1/4 overestimates.

Everything else should be a walkon or under 15 minutes.

If you run fast to MF right when the gates open, you may wait less than 5 minutes that is what I do. Three days is plenty of time, what you could do, I am assuming you are staying at one of the hotels, is ride MF first in the morning, and just before ten at night, get in line for RAPTOR.
As long as you are in line befroe ten, you will ride, even at midnight.

Do Gemini. This is a great underrated coaster!
Line time are minimal they usually run 4 trains.
this coaster was the tallest coaster when it debuted and has some great headchopper effects.

No1's predictions are pretty accurate. I live right near CP and visit very often and the lines on weekdays during June are usually relatively short, you should have a very enjoyable trip.

Ummm...on Monday the 11th, the park was one of the most crowded days yet. So consult your magic 8 ball and find out how long the lines are going to be.

MF Drops-21
SOB Rides-2

All I can say is get there right when it opens. This is what I do: RUN to The Force. Hop over to Mantis. Ride one side of PT. Run back to Magnum- ride it 3-5 times. Ride Gemini 2-4 times. Make it over to MS. Ride once (you can hit CCMR on the way if you want). This is when the crowds should be rolling in and its up to you on what to do.

You HAVE to ride Millennium Force, Raptor, Mantis, and Magnum. Those are the main four. You should hit Raptor first because it is right there whenever you walk in. But you HAVE to ride The Force. Wait for it at least two hours.

If you will notice the consensus of people on these boards go to Raptor first. The GP also goes to Raptor first which is why I go to the middle/back of the park. I usually save Raptor for night since its better then anyway.
