Cedar Point's CoasterMania?

Monday, June 3, 2002 11:39 AM

What is it like? Are there long lines? What Rides are open? How much does it cost? For the one trip to Cedar Point this year is it worth going to CoasterMania?

Please only answer these questions if you know that your answers are true.

There is also a free lunch and Q&A with Dick Kinzel. Not sure on the times.

You decide if its worth it. :)

Anyone who is affiliated with a Coaster Club can get in. Don't know about guests.

Coastermania is the most heavily attended coaster enthusiast event anywhere. The attendance the last few years has been in the 1500-2000+ range and I wouldn't expect that to dip this one with the new WT.

Only card carrying members of recognized coaster clubs can get in (though they're allowed 1 guest which is down from the normal up to 3 guests, perhaps this'll drop attendance levels?) and I wouldn't exactly call the ERT ERT (since the lines are usually about as long as they are during the day...) but for the price you really can't beat it, basically you're paying $10 less for 4 hours more time in the park along with a free lunch and souvenir button.

Consider the "ERT" to be EXTENDED Ride Time (1 am?!?), instead of Exclusive Ride Time, and all is well with the world.

How do they recognize guests? I realize that the guest will be with the club member, but what keeps people from "trading guests" while already in the park?

Just curious..

Do you mean like giving your button to someone else to wear? If thats what you mean, then there really is no was for them to stop it.

Last year's picnic was awful. Apart from last year, the CoasterMania meal has generally been hot dogs, chicken, baked beans, chips, and Potato Salad Surprise*. Usually decent. Last year it was basically hot dogs and chips and Surprise! No potato salad!

Note that vegetarian options may not be available due to the mayfly hatching season.
