Well, it's funny how some things happen out of nowhere.On Friday, my dad called me up and said " Hey do you want to go to Cedar Point tommorow? Paul is making a shipping in Cleveland and is offering to drop you off" and I was almost in shock. I may be going to the park that I only go once a year too, and have to wait weeks until I go, and is usually treated as a vacation ,and my favorite park, Cedar Point, tommorow! I'd have to go by myself , but I went anyway.

Well, I finally got there after a long night, and yes, the park still looks amazing when you are approaching it., even after 4 times . I got in and headed right for Millennium Force. I couldn't WAIT to get on this ride again, this is the only coaster I can say I go nuts on. After about an hour and a half wait, I got on. Let me just say this: The people who are saying MF slowed down are just too used to the ride. I rode in the front, and it was amazing, just as it was in 2001 and 2000! The ride is acutally more intense now, there were tears rolling down my eyes because of the intensity mixed with the speed and I blacked out on the 1st overbanked turn. This ride is still my #1 coaster overall, who cares if it doesn't have the best layout, it's just an amazing ride, easily gets a 10/10.

I went over to Wicked Twister, it must have been JUST opening because it barely had a line. I liked the music when you got on too. The launch was no different from V2, and neither was the first time up the twist. The first time up the backward twist is when I realized it 's going to end up being better than V2. The second time up the backward twist was AWESOME, and it gave a great floating feeling. Good job on this ride CP!
Rating: 8.5/10

I went over to Raptor. Too big of a line, I'll ride it later. Now I am just going to give briefs of what the entire day was like.

-Blue Streak was fun and had lots of air. 9/10

-Mantis kind of made me sad in the line. Everyone in the line were punks, this is like the punk hangout of CP. Oh well, it was pretty intense but the end kind of hurt. 9/10

- Corkscrew was okay, I blacked out on the straight track after the first loop. 6/10

-Power Tower gave a nice ride, but it didn't make me nervous like most Freefalls do.

- Magnum was great, but the bunny hops kind of hurt. PLEASE get new lap bars for this CP!!! 9.5/10

-Gemini also have a nice ride. I never rode this in the front, I did yesterday and it was great. 9/10

-Mean Streak really isn't that bad. It gives a nice long ride with decent speed that just lacks airtime. 7/10

-Cedar Creek Mine Ride was OK. Too much straight track, but I liked the last helix. 6/10

-Disaster Transport was
pretty fun, and the line actually felt less like a Space Mountain rip off this year. 8/10

-Raptor was GREAT! I rode it in the front, and after riding it at least 6 times before, this was not the ride I was expecting! But,..the highlight of the day was right here. I was talking to a girl in line, and she asked me how old I was, and I said " I'm turning 15 tommorow" and she told the ride op my birthday was tommorow when we got on the front, and she had everyone on the train sing happy birthday to me! What a great feeling! 9.5/10

-I didn't ride Wildcat or Iron Dragon, as I am not a big fan of either.

MF was just amazing in the front row at night, like it always is. The line was like a big concert, the DJ was playing catchy music and the crowd for the line was so lively.

The day was packed, but oh well, I had a great time, I hope to return for the usual vacation for this sometime later this summer. Thank you CP!

Magnum was great, but the bunny hops kind of hurted. PLEASE get new lap bars for this CP!!! 9.5/10

Its not hurted, its hurt. There is not such thing as hurted.

It should say...

Magnum was great, but the bunnyhops kinda HURT. Not hurted. Makes it sound so 1st grade.

Nice TR :)
