This is a great coaster! It has alot of air time on the hills and speed but on Tues and Wed it was a WALK-ON ride all day..
Cedar Creek Mine Ride-
Thrilling for smaller kids also a walk-on both days
Mean Streak- well, we know why!
Magnum- walk-on after 6pm both days
Raptor- walk-on after 5pm on Tuesday and 30 min wait on Wed
Millennium Force and Mantis were over 45 mins and that was expected but the park was crowded during the afternoon both days..so why the short lines for the older coasters?
Doesn't anyone love them anymore? :(
Corkscrew had all 3 trains running and the ride is short, so I can see it having minimal lines..Gemini had 2 blue trains going on Tues but all 4 (Red and Blue) Wednesday and still no lines and I love that coaster!
Magnum is THE best..I think when they built Steel Force at Dorney they left some things out..Magnum just rocks..and even more at night!!
Me Me Me!
I only rode MF once this trip... :( (wah wah wahhhhhhhhh)
We wanted to make sure that we got to ride everything this trip for the 2 days at CP and plus we have 2 kids so we were in Kiddy Kingdom and Camp Snoopy alot.
So when alot of the coasters became no waits..we rode them numerous times...
I love MF..my fave steel coaster!
"Wel what is the GP gonna go to: the new 300 foot coaster, or the ten year old 200 foot coaster?"
Magnum is still awesome for an over 10 year old coaster..and with No WAIT? That's where I went instead of waiting over 45 mins for another MF ride..
if the wait was shorter, then I would have gone to MF..but Magnum a walk-on? I grabbed 5 extra rides!
Just because it's a walk on doesn't mean nobody likes them anymore...
What are you on?

First off I'm a SHE...hence my name MOM?
And considering the last time I went to CP, all the coasters had over 1 hour waits..maybe more..such a huge difference in 2 years from over an hour plus to no waits at all.
then you have to look at CP being voted the #1 amusement park, and the park with the most coasters..then think to yourself if you are a tourist.."hmm...how come a majority of the coasters have No LINES?"
Wouldn't that seem a bit strange to you?
I guess I must be on something right?
Yup, I'm on COASTERBUZZ. :)
I'd rather die living than live like I'm dead
I'll tell ya that I was impressed again with the staff and the fact that the ride ops get the trains dispatched fast.
They are constantly moving..and RAPTOR had the best Ride Ops..with MAGNUM at a close 2nd..:)

...I gotta ask if this is the same CoasterMom (from URC) that I met at CoasterCon. If so, HI!....if not, Hi!
CP ride-ops are the best thing since SRM and PPP....they HUSTLE, and we appreciate it a LOT! ...and having returned from SoCal, I guess I can appreciate what a shock it must be to see ride-ops that care....;)

Gee Mom, I wish I could have that Complaint at CP. Seems every time I go the shortest waits are 1.5hrs.
I did visit on a labor day in I think '96 where it just seemed the park was empty. I tried this trick the next year and it was slammed. Go figure but man, thats my main complaint about CP is crowds and the one reason i don't visit more.
Chuck, who thinks a 1.5hr wait for corkscrew and Iron Dragon is just plain crazy despite they are both three train coasters.
