Yeah, that started for me with the first Intel-based MBP in 2006. Now there are four Macs in the house (plus one retired, the 2006 model), an AppleTV (the first one) and a couple of wireless routers. We've since moved on from iPhones, because as it turns out we like Windows Phone better (and it syncs with the Mac!). I have an iPad that I never use. All of that said, I can't say enough about how much I love the desktop and laptop computers that Apple makes.

I recently switched from an Android to an iPhone and have been surprised how much more I like the iPhone. I'm a tech guy, so I don't have issues figuring out how to use any of the advanced features on an Android. But its a phone, I don't want to have to think about it. And that's what I like about the iPhone, thinks work the first time and 90% of the time, the interface is so obvious you don't have to stumble around to find what you want.

No iPhone here (no cell phone at all), but I love my iMac and iPod Touch. I'll probably never go back to a PC or generic MP3 Player again.

I do have to help my Mother figure out stuff on her Windows 7 Sony VAIO all of the time, and it is frustrating.

Cedar Fair has launched all the new websites, anyone know if the actually Cedar Fair website will be new too?


Cedar Point will always be The Roller Coaster Capital of the World, regardless of the number of coasters they have.

Wow, just saw Michigan's Adventure's new website. Talk about a 180 from the crap they used to have. They actually look like they're apart of the Cedar Fair chain of park's now. At least on the web that is. Also noticed they're doing the Fast Lane next year. Surprised that they're taking part in it since there's usually very few long lines.

Fast Lane and its ilk do not exist because of long lines--they exist to make money.

Yet, oddly enough, it gets used because people want to avoid lines, not because they want to spend money.

It's funny how it's a win/win like that. :)

Which is what I was trying to say, but you clearly couldn't make the connection. If there's very few long lines, then there's no reason to buy the fast lane pass. Which means the park won't be selling many fast lane passes. Why would you pay 55$ so you don't have to stand in a 20 minute line at most.

Yes there is.

Now, had you said "if there are no lines at all, then there's no reason to buy the fast lane pass" then you'd be almost correct.

These points in favour of getting fast lane passes are valid... But unless money is literally a non-factor in your decisions, buying fast passes for MI would be a terrible decision.

Well, the decision to buy it or not is really up to the person. Last time I went to USO, I purchased the skip the line option for an extra $20. The parks weren't busy that day, I didn't really have to use it, but it basically gave me a walk on to all of the rides instead of a 10 minute wait.

Why did I do it? Because I was pressed for time anyways and was able to get a lot more stuff done that I normally would have by just walking on rides.

And because Rockit was a 90 minute wait with no line skip option and with the single rider line closed, and attractions like Posideons Fury & Disaster running at such a slow pace, and due to the fact that it took me FOREVER to get my free pass for the day redeemed, I was still able to ride almost everything I'd wanted to, and everything I hadn't done on my first visit from like 11am to about 5pm. In both parks.

I think I am the only person who likes short waits for rides anymore. Builds up the anticipation.

^ I agree with all that but again, MI... unless you can marathon Timbers for 10 or more.

I about anticipation. I remember my first ride on Dragster. It wouldn't be fun if I would of just walked up to the station and got on. It's all about standing in the queue line, watching launch over launch. Watching some roll back or barely get over. Having it break down twice in like. It all builds up the anticipation. I like somewhat long waits.
