Cedar Point Opening Day

I got to the park around 11:00 am and it was cold. After a quick trip to the restrooms (I like the hand dryers) here's what I did:

Raptor- I waited for about an hour and it was great as always and no mid course breaks. I did notice a little headbanging though. It's still one of my favorites.

Blue Streak- What a great ride. It was a walk on as usual and it had some good airtime.

Disaster Transport- I only waited about 10 min. for what was my first ride on this, and I was slightly impressed. It had some okay special effects, but I'd rather it to have been completely dark.

Wicked Twister- The wait was about an hour for what was a descent ride. It didn't blow me away, but I still had a lot of fun on it.

Gemini- This was my first ride on this coaster, and I had a great time on it. The wait was about 20 min. just because it wasn't racing. I now know why this coaster is spoken so highly of.

Cedar Creek Mine Ride- The only good thing about this ride was that I got stuck on both lifts and received a free exit pass to any ride except for TTD. This was also a walk on.

Iron Dragon- I love this coaster for some odd reason. It's not thrilling, but rather peaceful. It was a walk on, and I had a lot of fun on it.

Mantis- They really should finish the paint job. It looks pretty bad. I was disappointed with this ride. I experienced a great deal of headbanging that wasn't worth the 45 min. wait. I guess I just caught it on an off day.

Wildcat- The paint job looks great. I only waited about 10 min. and I had a lot of fun on it.

Millenium Force- WOW!!! I used my free exit pass and only waited 2 min! This was my first ever ride on MF and I was blown away. Although I don't like to rate my coasters, this is my new #1.

Corkscrew- This was a walk on and it was okay. I do like the corkscrews over the midway, though.

Magnum- Thanks to the Freeway stamp, I only waited about 10 min. This was my first ever ride on this coaster and it was awesome. The bunny hills have great air. This really is a world class ride.

Mean Streak- I was in pain after riding this. It wasn't heavily braked, it was just badly maintained. I love the roughness of wood coasters, but this was just too much. I thought my back was going to back. To tip it all off, my train got stuck in the station when we returned. They had to call in the mechanics to get us out of the trains.

All in all I had a great day at CP. Although I didn't get a chance to ride TTD, I did ride 13 coasters in one day. I can't wait until I return to the park later on in the year.

When did you get in line for WT? I only waited about 30 minutes!
