I'm planning a trip to Cedar Point this April, I was wondering what I should go on or look for while I'm there, and whats worth waiting for.

nice plan no one will be there, litterally, your gonna have to operate the coasters and everything (sarcasm), the park opens i think between May 5-10.

Seriously, what do you want to know? Go on all the coasters! Then go on the ones you liked most again!

Definitely ride all of the coasters, though there will be a huge line for the new one. Woodies are the lowest priority if you can't ride all. Also check out a few of the other rides. Particularly Cedar Downs which is a nearly unique high speed racing carousel.

Here's the major problem I see with your question: first, everyone will have a different opinion of what's "worth waiting for." Case in point, in another thread some people are arguing over how good Mantis is/isn't.

Secondly, you didn't state how many days you'll be at the park. If you're there more than one day, why worry? In April you should safely be able to ride everything and repeat what you enjoyed on a 2-day stay, and quite possibly even during a 1-day stay.

Thirdly, you didn't clarify if you're only concerned with coasters or if you want opinions of flat rides and shows, too. Doesn't seem to be helpful if people are suggesting Chaos if you don't like to spin, twirl, and flip.

Lastly, I think its a bad idea to "overplan" a trip, especially one that is 7 months away. A lot can happen in 7 months and the park hasn't even announced their 2003 improvements yet. Take some time and do some research here on C-buzz and on other sites, including the park's website and www.rcdb.com. If by the time next March rolls around you still have questions or concerns, ask again.

Okay, Cedar Point doesn't open until early may. If you're wondering what to ride while you're there, I think that the best I can give you is to ride minivan full of anxious kids around perimeter road a couple times. After that, if the kids aren't pumped enough you can do again! But after that, it will probably be time for lunch so you can stop at the Boathouse for lunch and then you can take another couple of spins on PR, which is the Ultimate Ride.


Disclaimer: PR: The Ultimate Ride is not connnected to the track and Cedar Pont assumes no responsibility of death or injury due to passangers, considering the train does not run off momentum, but by careful steering of the driver. Please drive safely on PR: TUR, and enjoy your day at Cedar Pont, America's Roller Coast!

I agree with that. Don't overplan anything, especially if it has to do with ride itineraries. You might better spend your time planning where to stay, where to eat, etc. instead of getting all neurotic over what to ride. But I do respect your enthusiasm. Also, check your calendar - if you show up at the Point that early all you'll get to see is Mantis being repainted (if we're lucky....).
