Hello Coaster Fans Who Are Now Trying To Figure Out What To Do During Weekdays Now,

Just to let you all know, there really isn't anything bad in this report. The topic is merely about some stuff that most people don't hear about...typical good things.

Today I got to go up and be a "normal guest." I like to do this at least once a year...just for a reality check (I think more enthusiast should do this). Instead of my normal Joe Cool park time. I arrived at the park in "Rush Hour." Just to let you know how traffic was. It took 1 hour to get from the Turnpike to the toolbooths (usually only 15min.) Looks liked I picked a busy day :) No problem.

It's amazing how people sit through that, but as soon as they get their ticket and enter the park...it's all gone, and it's a free for all. I opted for a show schedule and head right to Wicked Twister. For THE FIRST TIME (in all 58 times I have been to CP this year) There was a 45min wait for Wicked Twister...WOW! (Normal public view) It's thier new ride so I had to ride it first. Wait was exactly 45min. And I got on. Great ride.

(Non Public View) Wicked Twister IS NOT running at full operation yet. The first time up the back spick it does not go all the way up...the last seat barely passes the supports. BUT the other shots are normal. So it's more or less like they just lessened the back spike a little. Second time it does go up...not to sure if it was as high as opening day though, but close. I still think the biggest problem with the engineering of the ride is they didn't calculate the forces (or unforseen forces) when the decided to put the track basicaly up "through" the supports.

Next was MForce, by the time I got over there it was marked a 2 1/2 hour wait! YIKES! Get this...even the extended que was being used today (haven't seen that all year). Everyone else was getting in, so I did to. It was a very long wait, but the ride made it worth it. Got a little stapled but it was fun. Time to see Snoopy Rocks On Ice.

I got in line outside and they soon let us in...Nice preshow attempting to get the crowd warmed up. I did the wave..YEEeeeeAAAaaaHHhhhh! It was soon a PACKED house. And the show started. GREAT show. This is BY FAR CP's best show they have ever done. As a general public, I can tell you they had something for everyone, good story line, special effects, music, etc. Everyone left, including me, with a smile on my face.

I won't go into detail about the rest of the stuff, but I can tell you I now have proof that inside the the park SFWoA has ONLY one less waterfountain than CP. I'm not saying either park is hard to find or easy but ;) I did have a great day at the park, most lines were VERY long, Iron Dragon, Corscrew, and more were even waits. I of course took lots of construction pictures at the end when I was done with all the shopping and filling out stuff (I can tell you they got the highest rating ever from me for food...best Cheese on a stick..EVER). They are also massively preparing for Halloweekends now. It was a good weekend for the public (and enthusiasts) to come up and enjoy the last unoffcial weekend of summer. And I can tell you it was a HUGE difference then 3 days before, where I could walk on anything. There's no doubt why the general public come from MILES and EAONS around to this park. Have a Great Fall and see you around at Halloween!

No kidding? People time travel to Cedar Point? You should have asked some of those people from the future what the ride will be like next year!

No need to ask when already knows. BUT since you did ask...there's no harm in telling a little details they give me. It was kind of hard to understand them (time travel does that to ones voice). They did give me these details:

It will go foward.
It will go fast.
People will call it a name.
It will be attached to the ground.
It will go up.
It will go down.
It will be over 6ft tall.
It's color is something you have seen before.

...and after that talk we went and had some cheese on a stick ;)

I would give ya a little more details, but until I get my current time machine patented I only can tell you what they told me.

:) See ya around at Halloweekends...in 3016!
