Preemptive FAQ:

Info page is here.
Info on their new 420-foot monstrosity is here. 120 mph in 4 seconds can apparently do weird things to your face though. :)
All the cabins/cottages on Lighthouse Point are already full. I think Sandcastle Suites is full too. Breakers Express might have something open... not sure.
There is no step 4.
We're meeting at TGI Fridays on Friday night and hitting the park Saturday/Sunday -- two days in case it rains one day.
Time permitting, we might try to squeeze Matrix Reloaded in on Friday or Saturday night. Dunno.

I would go but being in high school and also the fact that i'm sleeping at the mall the night before Matrix: Reloaded comes out i'm busy.

I'm looking forward to it. I saw the video clip of Top Thrill dragster on TV on last night.
2003-05-02 07:40:18 AM  
I'd be on top of this, except I'm feeling exceptionally poor as of late.

Yesterday was "Media Day" at Cedar Point. A buddy of mine went up there, and said they were having problems with the "Top Thrill" ride.

Hopefully they'll get 'er tuned up and running right by party time.

Last reminder?

Please give us at least one more.

I live for these.

Can you put it off a week until we're in the area?

I thought about bringing the boat and staying on it, but it's not looking the best weather-wise yet. Takes about 1.5 hours and the dockage is cheap.

That's the weekend of many proms here in the Cleveland area, and the tradition every year is to go down to Cedar Point and get smashed and get laid.
2003-05-02 09:08:47 AM  
I wanna go to cedar point :(
I was planning on heading up there in early june this year, so i could get in before all the kiddies get out of school. Looks like i'm not gonna be able to make it until august now. Unless, of course, someone wants to send me the money for the trip, as well as the money I'd get from work that weekend. I have a paypal account....

I cant wait to go!!!

That new one looks scary!!! It took much convincing just to get me up on Millenium Force last year, this looks super-scary!!!

Love Rollercoaster, but afraid of heights!!
2003-05-02 10:29:28 AM  
I can't wait to get on TTD!!!! It looks super COOL.

I can't wait to party with everyone as well.

/roller coaster junkie

My palms are getting sweaty just watching the video for TTD. That think looks sweet. I'll probably chicken out though.
2003-05-02 11:01:29 AM  
Dammit, I can't go because I already paid to go for senior week and the parents are coming up that weekend. My first chance at a FARK party and it gets trumped by more important things.

Now for some advice, to those who've never been to CP
I hope for all your sakes that the Millenium Force line is shortened by Top Thrill Dragster. I think the Force will still be a better ride, as opposed to 30 seconds of being launched going up, coming down, and looping into the station. Millenium Force and Raptor are the most amazing rides I've been on, and the Magnum is a great coaster that becomes walk-on later in the day as the crowd thins.

Finally, if you go on the Mantis, when they adjust your restraints, stand tall and straight for the shoulder harness, then crouch down when they raise this bar into your crotch to prevent any sensitive areas from being crushed for the duration of the ride.
2003-05-02 11:02:41 AM  
Oh, one more thing: tough it out if it rains. the crowd thins out so much if the rain stops that you make up for lost time in smaller lines.
2003-05-02 11:08:23 AM  
I'm gonna make it to one of these things, I swear.

Next year.

2003-05-02 11:48:34 AM  
Damn. I'll be graduating from Kenyon college on the 17th.
I don't think I can make it even tho i'm only like..2-3 hours away (central Ohio). No one will miss me though :(
2003-05-02 11:54:00 AM  
Minmei: did they ever get you on the Power Tower? I'm terrified of heights, too, so I get dragged onto that thing every time. However, I've come to enjoy it, as it's the only thing there that really scares me every time.
2003-05-02 12:11:35 PM  

Minmei, will we actually be able to see you this year? :) You were one of the few that I didn't get to meet.

The Power Tower was way fun and not scary at all (to me). I was terrified when I got on, but it was cool.
2003-05-02 12:11:38 PM  
What about Boston fark parties? How many farkers are there in Beantown, anyway?
2003-05-02 12:37:23 PM  
I remember Minmei's reaction to Millennium Force. It wasn't quite as dramatic as, oh, say, Cruiser's, but it was funny... :)
2003-05-02 01:01:37 PM  
As of today I'm paid up for the ticket, I think. I'll probably be there alone (sob) but I'll make due.
2003-05-02 01:44:25 PM  
I'll be there in 2 days so I will let you know just how cool TTD is, but knowing my luck it will either break down or rain :(
2003-05-02 04:39:28 PM  
Waaah, I want it in my town! Six Flags sucks.

2003-05-02 10:10:12 PM  
how coincidental, im going to cedar point twice that same weekend, that friday and that sunday. and i don't have to pay $44 or whatever! school discounts, gotta love it.
