How many of you usually stay at on site resorts? I stayed at Hotel Breakers in August and loved it. I loved waking up and having MF right outside my window. I loved waking up at 5 (12 when I'm not at CP) in the morning and staring at the Power Tower Test runs where the cars go extremely slow up the towers and then come back down (takes like 1/2 hour per tower) and in amazement of the coaster heaven I was about to endure. If you stay at on site hotels have you ever had a cool coaster out your window?
----------------- Its not attention deficit. I'm just ignoring you.
I stay at the Breakers all the time. Personally, I think it is the best place to stay at the point. Last time I had a beach view room, but every morning I would walk over to the window in the hall and look outside towards the park. Corkscrew looks so tiny next to Power Tower.

Stay at Sandcastles at Cedar Point and request a Magnum View room. You can stand (sit) on your balcony and watch Magnum come rolling in to the pretzel turn and back out over and over just across the grass. Really one of the coolest "coaster rooms" at CP.
I have never been on either, but I think I would still rather wake up to MF weather it is the tallest in the world or not. That thing looks awsome, yet for me, it is much farther than a "walk in the park". Instead, it's a walk through a few states...:(
I stayed at Breakers for Labor Day weekend. I know exactly what your talking about. My favorite part was waking up at about 3 in the morning, and looking out the window and seeing it all lit up. Staying at the breakers makes the park seem so much better. I mean I could walk up and down the beach until I'm about 20-30 ft. away from Wicked Twister. The breakers is a very nice resort, and if anyone plans a trip to CP, I highly recomend staying at the Breakers. It made my visit so much better.

I stayed in the hotel at Knott's unfortunately no coasters we're visible from the hotel room. Although you can see ghostrider from the lobby. I love staying onsite tho. You can wake up and walk right over to the park.
----------------- Six Flags, the only chain of parks that can manage to have stacking with a one train operation.
I like staying at CP's resorts for the convenience, and we've enjoyed the "magnum view" rooms at Sandcastle. Although lately we've stayed at Breakers Express simply because it's cheaper.
I prefer staying at a park for the convenience, but SFGAm, MiA and PKI didn't have on site resorts. The hotel we stayed at for SFGAm was across the street from the park, and I could see DeJa Vu, Shockwave and Raging Bull from our window.

I have stayed at The Breakers at CP, and it was a wonderful experience. I'm too lazy to get up for the test runs, but when I did wake up, I went out to the parking lot for a bit of fresh air. We stayed in the wing right by Soak City, so what assaulted my senses as soon as I stepped out of the doors? Oh, yes...
CLANG CLANG, CLA-CLANG, CLANGITY CLANG CLANG!
None other than the very distinctive sound of the chain lift on the best coaster I have ever ridden.
(And, yes, I've been on Millenium Force. It's good, but it just doesn't have that speed run back to the station.
