CP Opening Weekend - from GTTP

Associated parks:
None

Friday, May 19, 2000 9:22 PM
Getting to CP after this entire winter of adjustment to college classes and hockey was just unbelievable. The entire flight back to Pittsburgh from Boston on Friday night was riddled with anticipation by both myself and my boyfriend who was very excited after me sending him links and telling him every little fact about MF and CP over the past few months. He is from Carlisle, MA and thus has never been to any amusement park but a small one called Canobie Lake Park up in New England (a lot of you might know about it but others don't). Anyway I digress, onto the TR.

5-13

Well, my car broke down on Friday night on the way back from the airport but my mother was so gracious as to let me use her Kia Sportage. So I went down to Washington, PA to pick up my best friend Kim and then came back here to New Castle, where I got my sister, ate some tacos and then took off. We were CP bound and the 2 1/2 hour drive seemd like nothing! In no time at all it seemed I was seeing the park's skyline again, only with a large blue and silver creation looming over it. I almost ran into the toll booth, I was so consumed with looking at my park, and then we went through the booth and parked in the Soak City lot which was nearly empty, yada yada. Now for the rides:

Magnum XL-200
around 8:15 or so
Sat in 12 left and had an awesome ride. Wanted to ride this before we got on MF so that we could test the supposed new roughness before getting biased by the rumored smoothness of the Force. The Magnum was the same as I always remembered it, a little rough coming out of the pretzel turn but otherwise a great airtime-filled ride as always.

We rode once and then were headed towards Raptor when we heard that MF's line would be closing at 9 pm. So we diverted our path and headed straight for MF as it was 8:30 at the time, and we got in line for the big blue monster at 8:40 or so. They told us it would be a 3 hour wait.

Rode this one other time in the day, about 8:15 pm or so.

Hit MF again then went to Gemini. Walk on of course.

Gemini, red train
12:50 or so
We lost! Chris was amazed at the headchoppers on this ride and thought hand-slapping was cool.

Mean Streak
about 1:30 pm
Overbraked and rough, needs work still. Needed to take Chris on it though, it's still Mean Streak.

Cedar Creek Mine Ride
about 2:00 pm
I love the Mine Ride, the new control system looked a bit foreign to me but the blue tag made sure to tell the entire crew that I worked on the ride last year hehe.

Chaos
about 2:40 pm
Chaos rules!! Yay for Chaos!! I opened a queue on it just like last year hehe. We flipped 7 times! Record last season was 14. :o)

Headed for MF again, then Magnum, then Raptor again, then got in line for MF for the last ride of the night again. Went home exhausted and happy.

Was very glad to say hi to everyone and especially loved seeing all of the other employees that made me feel so welcome and made me have the greatest time working there last year. I can't wait to get back there this summer...June 11 can't come soon enough.

Back to Boston now, more school. Yay.

Great TR! Please let us know if you get to ride Boulder Dash and S:ROS. I'll be riding them in June and I heard they are awesome! Yes, MF is something else isn't it? :)

S:ROS = GOOD....VERY GOOD!

Ridden that one. :) :)

I would be riding Boulder Dash on Sunday if only I could get a ride. If only....I hate not driving but I think I'd hate driving in Boston more.

Wow, that's confusing. Ah well.

Wants to go to Lake Compounce, someone help!
