Definatly the CP fries. Cedar Creek Mine Ride on a nice hot summer day is very nice. The smell of funnel cakes and elephant ears. Also there is that distinctive lake erie smell at Cedar Point (no not the smell of fish), thats hard to describe.

1) Chain grease....I can smell a coaster from about a mile away on a hot day just by the oh-so-pleasant aroma of the grease; 2) Wooden coasters with sheds/tunnels, ravenguy hit it on the HEAD with Legend; 3) the smell of the waffle cones/funnel cakes - fried dough is ALWAYS a big hit; and never forget, 4) THE NUTTY BAVARIAN - how can you go wrong with cinnamon&sugar coasted almonds/walnuts/pecans? 5) The mist from the fountains in the morning is also excellent, and only improves the Paramount experience! ----------------- the buzzer formerly known as gatorwoodie Son of Drop Zone - PKI CoasterCamp I Champions!!!
At SFOT: The very distinct smell of "jennite" (spelling is probably incorrect) on a hot summer day. Jennite is the tar-like coating that covers the asphalt sidewalks at SFOT. It has a very distinct smell when it warms up, especially if it has been recently replaced. I have always thought of it as the official "smell" of SFOT.
I love the smell of the pine trees when standing in line for Ninja and Superman at SFMM. Especially first thing in the morning when they are wet. Also the smell of those funnel cakes is a great way to end your day.
What's the worst line at SFMM you ask? The line for the funnel cakes at Suzette's bakery at about 8 pm.
My favorite smell is the mixture of funnel cakes/cotton candy and that destinct smell of ashpalt mixed. Very prevalent at SFSTL. (I'm sure it's elsewhere too, I just notice it there more) Chain grease is a close second. ----------------- God please let SFKK get something in 2002. ANYTHING!!
The smell of Lake Erie hitting your face when you crest Magnum's second hill, the sulfur off the bay driving down the Causeway, and the roasting nuts, or almonds on Cedar Point's midway, french fries. ----------------- -Eric www.TheAmazementPark.com "If everything seems undercontrol, you're not going fast enough!"
At SFWoA when in line for the Big Dipper you can smell the track grease everytime, I love it. However, the best smells are during Oktoberfest! The smell of sausage, fries, gyros and all that other great greasy foods fill the air across the park. ----------------- Premier, head of the lapbar revolution!

Cedar Point & Kennywood Potato Patch Fries! :) Also Oktoberfest at SFWoA is filled with nice smells as the carnival style food stands are open for business. The fry stand was pretty good this year at Oktoberfest AND Fright Frest, since the park wanted to keep some of the vendors for Fright Fest.
The Big Dipper (SFWoA) smells of it pretty strong, then it delivers your special bruises in the best way!
And in the cue at SFGAm for The EAGLE! Oooooh yes, LOTS of good grease - then a great ride!
FUNNEL CAKES - I never eat the things....but the smell just says "Coasters nearby!" to me! ...so I love it.
The ROASTED NUTS are a nice addition too!
The OLD WOODEN CABINS at CP have a great earthy smell that makes me think "I could LIVE here!"
The FISH TANKS! "Huh?" you may ask? I mean the Sea World part of SFWoA! It really added a great olifactory element to a spectacular weekend! You should have seen Live4MF's face when she was feeding raw fish to the seals! HAhahahaaaaaa! What a great park!
