We was driving up to the parking lot, which was endless, and I saw Millenium Force from a distance, the best thing eyes can see! Then I looked over and seen Wicked Twister, Raptor, and Mantis! It was great! We were only going to be at the park from 9:30 until 7, so I knew some rides would be off the list. First thing we headed to was Millie, which was a 2 hour wait, on a Tuesday! One reason, they only had 2 trains running, which made no sense to me. But, WOW! What a ride. I don't think I will ever ride anything better! Then, we hoped on the train, and headed back to Mean Streak. That was the worst decision I have ever made in my whole life! I will never ride that coaster anymore! It felt like we were just going to stop while going down the first drop!
Then, we headed to White Water Landing, Snake River Falls, and Thunder Canyon. Great rides after standin in 97 degree weather for 2 hours! Afterwards, we went to the picnic area and ate some lunch, b/c we aint stupid enough to pay that much for food! We entered the park again, and rode Raptor, the shortest line I have ever been in, besides Mean Streak. The wait was only 15 minutes! GREAT ride, no other words to describe. Then we hoped on Power Tower, rode better! Next, we rode Magmun, only about a 15 minute wait. Now, which is my 2nd best coaster, next best thing to Millie! Aterwards, we went to Mantis, and they only had 1 train running! Which really didn't make any sense! But, we was in line for only 25 minutes, and ewas already half-way thru! Then, they decided to put another train on! And guess what? While putting on the 2nd train, it broke down. So, we got out of line, and that ruined my day! Since I have never rode a stand-up coaster! But, we got over it, and went to Wicked Twister! Not your best coaster, but definintely on my top 5 list! This ride is such a rush! Last, on the way out we went to Demon Drop. Definitely a great coaster, nobody gives it enough attention!
We left after Demon Drop, not riding Gemini, Wildcat, or Iron Dragon, I forgot Corkscrew! But, I feel like I was missing much! Out of a 5, over all Cedar Point is a 5!

Sorry......I don't think Demon Drop is classified as a coaster.
You didn't ride the Gemini!?!? What is wrong with you?!?! That is one of the best coasters at CP in my opinion.
Welcome back riders, how was your ride...Enjoy your day, here at Cedar Point, America's roller coast.

Good TR, but you didn't have to end everything in with a "!"

Why didn't you just stay all day I would probably stay 2 if I was up there, I'm guessing the lines were long due to Independance Day. I don't know why the rides weren't at capacity though.
Can we change the name of Top Gun to your mom so no one wants to ride your mom?
