I am going to Cedar Point soon, and had a couple of questions?
For those of you who have stayed in the resorts there, I know you are allowed early admission into the park at 9am, but how long are the waits for TTD, and Millenium Force?
Also, I have been looking up admission prices, and my friends and I are going to go to the park for 2 days! I know there is a deal for the ride & slide thing for like $65 or so, but is that for one day at cedar point, and one day at Soak City? I was a bit confused! And since i am staying at the resort, Can i buy the tickets at the resort?
Any other suggestions for the park would be helpful as this is my first trip to the park!

You can get package deals with tickets at the hotels. Call them.
Ride and slide can be 2 days at the park.

lines for TTD are usualy about half hour to a hour and a half. you won't know for sure until you get there. All I can tell is it will be packed on Holidays like July 4 when people come from out of town. Your second question can be answered here www.cedarpoint.com

If you get there early and can run fairly fast you will probably have anywhere from a walk-on to a 15 minute wait. That is if it's opening on time. If you don't see any test runs before they let you in I would go to a different ride.
For the Ride & Slide you get two tickets for both Soak City and Cedar Point. If your going early in the season Soak City will be closed so those will just be extra.
They sell tickets at Breakers. Not sure about anywhere else.
Other than that I would say definitely try to ride Dragster and just have fun.

Hey Yeah, actually Im going on the 29th and 30th of may (Memorial Day weekend) Earlier some one mentioned that it was some what crowded on holidays. Has anyone ever been there on Memorial Day week end? And if so how bad is the crowd? I was informed that pretty much the month of May is the best time to go....

Actualy there is one exception, memorial day. For the past couple of years it has not been to crowded. That is a pretty good weekend to go because everyone thinks it is going to be crowded and decides not to go.

If I recall correctly, the Cedar Point website gives you a whole bunch of tips about what to do when you're there and how to plan your day, and it does mention that holidays like Memorial Day and July 4th really don't generate larger than normal crowds.
Even though I've only been once (and will be returning twice this summer), the best advice I can give you is to take a good long time and poke around the CP website. It really is an invaluable resource and is extremely informative. You can probably find the answers to almost all of your park-related questions there if you take a half-hour or so to snoop around.
