First we hit V2. We waited about 7 minutes for front row. I loved front row. This ride is so exciting as usual.

Then on to Batman. We went for front row again. IMHO I think this ride is getting rough but I still like it. Another 10 minute wait.

Onto Iron Wolf. 5 min. wait in the back row. I love this ride but I prefer the front better because it doesn't whip you around as much.

Next Was Amercian Eagle. We went straight for backwards line. At first it looked like Forwards was closed but it was just no one was going to that line. Right before we went on the last row(to leave the station), we saw American Eagle Forwards was a walk-on ride. Backwards is amazing. The drop is unlike any other I have felt. The thing that surprises me is the little camelbacks that give you a lot of airtime. The helix was fun as you speeded down faster and faster. After backwards we went straight for forwards. By the time we got on, we were racing. it was really cool racing the backwards train.

Next onto Raging Bull, front row. Waited about a half an hour. It was fun but the first drop seemed less fun than usual. Maybe I just had an off day.

we ate dinner. we got those rides all done before 7:30

After, we went to Viper. I dislike the station because it is so crowded. It is hard to tell sometimes what lane your in. Still a great ride and has lots of airtime.

We then went to V2. We passed Vi3 preforming but I'll talk more about the concert later.When we got to V2 it was broken down.

Next we still had a lot of time so we went to Spacley Sprockets Rockets. No little kids so we got 4 laps on it. it was fun and the ride op was really nice. Next to Demon. Kind of Rough but still fun.

Next was Raging Bull again and it was closed. Onto Trail Blazer. After we checked RB and it was still closed. We went to Whizzer and it was stuck on the track. We ate funnel cakes to end the night.

What surprised me was Deja Vu was open the whole time!!!!!!!, and it was 30 degree weather. I guess Deja Vu can Work in cold weather. We didn't ride it because the line was long and I've been on it and it's not worth it IMHO.

I heard that B2k performed for 15 minutes only because people were getting trampled. They stoped the show. It is good to see that SFGAm cares a lot about everyone's safety.

And something funny that I heard a GP say while whizzer was stuck was "We should write a note to B96 and say we want our money back for the concert and that the rides don't work." I was going to tell her that B96 can't control the rides breaking down and obviously there aren't any refunds. But I didn't want to be mean.

Also, when we left, the flowers by the stage were all trampled and flat. I felt sorry for the flowers!

About that Viper station...It's so annoying. I don't see why they don't control that a little better.

Yes, the Viper station house is nothing but mass confusion. You dont know where one line starts and the other ends. If they arent going to control the amount of people entering the station, then they need to extend the hand rails for each car position.

Some times they do control it pretty good when they have a employee stand in front of it.

Chitown: when you finally *do* make it to Cedar Point, you'll notice that the station for Magnum has the similar "controlled chaos" feeling to it =]

Yeah, well that won't be happening this year! SFGAm is budget cutting to the extreme. From what I was told, there will be abso-positively-lutely zero groupers this year (No Deja Vu, no V2, no Bull, no Viper, no Drop, you get the idea).

So when trains are going half empty on Raging Bull because there's no one to control the flow of guests into the station, you'll know why.

You can thank the fantastic full time rides staff for that! Thanks guys, keep up the great work.

(sarcasm is so great)

actually v2 has a grouper now. the employee at fast lane will be grouping the people. im not sure whats going on with the other rides though but you are right sfgam is budgeting their money a lot when it comes to certain things.
