^That's a VERY cool memory you'll have forever!

My 70 year old mother-in-law woudn't even consider the notion of going on Iron Dragon, so your mother is very brave! Good for her.... I think my mother-in-law got all of her rollercoaster riding out of her system back in the good old days of Euclid Beach Park. Both she and my father-in-law were amazed at Cedar Downs and appreciated the fact that it's still entertaining guests. We got my 72 year-old father-in-law on Iron Dragon, Mean Streak (which I was a bit nervous about), Disaster Transport, and Wicked Twister (!!! - surprise - he really liked it), but after those four he decided to call it quits. Going to Cedar Point with "the over seventies" is a lot more fun than I thought it would be and I want to do it again.

Thanks for the report. I liked how you did this outside of this website - it's nice to link pictures in the TR directly.

I was also very surprised how light the crowds were that day. If you went to TTD at the right time, there was only a 15 minute wait! I will post a trip report when I get a chance.

That's very nice. 74 and coasterin'! Awesome!
Some of my best memories came from riding coasters at Euclid Beach with my mom. She passed about 15 years ago
