Just a quick TR about a quick trip out to The Point. I met up with Peter, a shooting buddy from my sportsman's club and headed out. We arived at the park about 11 and hit Magnum first. TTD was down (the TTD brakes down when I visit the park curse is still alive)so we headed over to MF and had a great ride in the back.

A lap on Mantis and then up to the front of the park for a ride on Raptor, back seat and Blue Streak. Blue Streak is still giving some great air. We had something to eat and I purchased some fudge and started to head to the back of the park when I saw the lights light op on TTD and then a test train go over the top. We briskly walked back to TTD and got in line and had a front seat ride in about 45 minutes. Just increadable. What a ride!

A quick shot on power tower and a lap on MS and we headed back home as Peter could not stay long:(

What a great day. Great weather. The park was crowded, but the lines were moving smoothly. The biggest holdup was Mantis as usual as people still can't follow directions and the ops have to keep unlocking and relocking the trains. Once TTD was up and running, it was running well. The red train is still mia.

My Nitro shirt started a lot of conversations as people asked how it was and where SFGAdv was. Ride ops were even commenting about how great Nitro is. People were very talkative today. Some even stopped us on the midway to check out the Dragster picture we got. We talked with a couple of ladies in line for MF and then ran into them several times later in the day. We saw them on TTD as we were in line and they lapped us as we waited for the front seat. How'd they do that?

We had a great day, just wish that we did not have to leave so early.

Wow its a trip report from next year! lol

Glad you had a good time and glad you got some good comments from Ride Ops about Nitro. Anytime ive been at CP wearing something that bears the words "Six Flags" on it I would get some kind of hassle..but that was when Geauga Lake was SFWoA, so maybe they dont care to say that stuff anymore! :-)

I have had that in the past also, not really a hassle, but more poking fun. Last year I had a PKI SOB shirt on and several CP employees commented that I had the wrong shirt on. One said something like; you can't wear that shirt here. I told here that I wore my CP "Things to do today" shirt at PKI and she then said that that was the only shirt that I needed.
