Cedar Point Novice

Making first trip to CP this summer. Can the more experienced CP veterans, give me some pointers? Am looking forward to riding Raptor and Mantis. Should I ride them first thing or wait until later? Any pointers about rides, food and lodging would be appreciated!!

Shameless plug:

Check out Guide to The Point, CoasterBuzz's sister site, at http://www.guidetothepoint.com. The strategy section should be helpful in planning your day, while the rides section will fill you in on the rest.

That website is very similar to coaster buzz!

All the big chain coaster sites are like that. Similar experience. No charm. Giant concrete forums. It really disgusts the internet purist in me.

And merely days after a record-breaking 12 year old thread resurrection, we have a new record of 13 years and one week.

Resurrection wars?

Tyler: If it isn't obvious from the comments above, it's not really a good idea to bring back threads from the dead from around the time of your birth. :)

Ugh. There's some perspective, huh?

My +1 is for the removal of spam, and not the spam itself. Now that I think about it, it doesn't make sense to do what I just did because the +1 goes to the spammer and not the person who removed it. I wish I could take it back now. :p

Think before you one-up, man. I take my plus ones very seriously.

About the rides: Raptor is right near the entrance, and I personally think it's a great ride to-start off with. Mantis is near the Millennium Force. It's decent, but it does hurt your crotch when you ride the inverisons (as most standups do). My 3 faves are; 1) Millennium Force, 2) Magnum XL-200, 3) Raptor. But a lot of people will say thier favorite is Maverick (my #4 at CP). I WILL warn you though, CP's wooden coasters aren't the best...they don't suck, but there are better parks for wooden coasters. The Food: Cp has an interesting array of food services. Various fast food, a Johnny Rockets (good), Panda Express (sos-so). Lodging: I haven't ever stayed at CP overnight, but you could try to check out the website...

ThatStrangeKid42, you're a bit late...about 13 years to be exact.

Yeah, I hope CoasterRick isn't a CP novice anymore.

What do you mean?

The calendar is not your friend.
