Going To the Point

Tuesday, July 24, 2001 6:12 AM
What should I go on When I visit the point Next Thursday,Friday,Saturday and Sunday? I was thinking when I got to the park Thursday, Try to hit the FORCE front row. Do they let you pick which row u want? Is the park confuzing about finding stuff? Or is it in the open you can see everything? I watched the speical on last Monday, It was great. Well, Please answer these questions. thank you.

The park is very easy to navigate. The main midway goes straight back from the gate and makes a big loop around the back of the park.

As far MF goes you are allowed to wait for the front or back seat this year. Being there 4 days, you'll have no problem checking everything out. I would go to MF as soon as the gates open and use the marina gate if possible, it's closer to MF.

You should only ride the carousel. No other ride at CP is worth the wait. The carousel is always worth the wait.
Just kidding. Why do you want to go to CP? Is it just for MF? IF not, then you have already answered the question "what should I go on" yourself. WHen you go to CP you see lot's of rides that look like fun. Other rides will look boring. Ride all the rides that look like fun first, then if you have time, ride the ones that look boring. If your there for four days, you'll have time to ride everything you want.
Don't let some stranger on the internet tell you what to ride, go with your heart! *** This post was edited by PointMan on 7/24/2001. ***

Absolutely with four days you'll have plenty of time, even though the weekends can be viciously crowded in July and early August. I'd recommend, for that reason, hitting the coasters on Thursday and Friday, so that you aren't upset on your last two days because you haven't been on one and the lines are a lot longer. Don't forget the awesome shows, and take the time to take in a lot of the smaller rides as well!

Make sure to go to Town Hall in Frontier Land and ask about the haunted horse. It is sitting back in Town Hall with 2 others. I get goosebumps whenever I get close to it. If Joe is working there, he will tell you all kinds of stories about it.

oh and if you do go on MF, make at least one ride in the very back, on the drop you feel like your gonna be catapulted out of your seat, its the best drop ive EVER felt in my life!

Since you're going to be there for 4 days, I'd start out by riding the smaller coasters and then work my my way up. (smaller meaning Raptor, Mantis, Mean Streak, Magnum :))

If it is mid-day in August, the crowds may be big, but it will help that it's a Thursday. If you start riding coasters at noon, I'd think you could get all the coasters in by that night...maybe. I'd skip Disaster Transport, Wildcat, Woodstock Express for the first day if you can't get them all in. You should definitely end the day with MF. The lift colors are awesome and dropping 300 ft into pitch blackness is just incredible...beyond words incredible.

CPgenius - Are you crazy? Hold off on Woodstock? That's the coolest ride in the park! ;)
Seriously though, PointMan had the right idea. Ride what you think looks like fun. Be prepared for large crowds on Saturday, and Friday might be pretty busy too. You might want to get the big rides in first on Thursday, but after that, play it by ear and have a blast.
