Trip Report: Cedar Point on July 2, 2010
I really wanted to go to Cedar Point on the weekend of the 4th, but knowing how crowded it would be I settled for a few days before. I got to the park early to get a ride in on Raptor and Millennium Force before it got too busy.
While ridding the Force, I noticed that Shoot the Rapids had opened at 10am instead of 11am like the other water rides. So I took the Skyride back to the car and changed into my swimsuit.
My first ride ever on Shoot the Rapids was AMAZING!
I even got to ride in my own boat! I then took three more rides on it that day! Being a single rider has its perks! I also managed to waste about $5 on the water cannons!
After my 3rd ride, it broke down so I headed back to the car for lunch. After lunch I decided to try out Challenge Park’s go-karts. I got my temps last winter and had my proof that I was 16 so I could go on the “big kids” track.
After that I headed back into the park to ride Shoot the Rapids again. I got to ride three more times before it was time to change into dry clothes for Grand Ole Country. After the show, I hopped onto the train to go and see Tropical Heat, Island Beat at the Garter. I then rode Iron Dragon and Top Thrill Dragster before trying something new: Power Tower.
In my two years of going I had never been on it at all. The end result is: I like the shot side better than the drop side. It’s quicker and has more of a thrill then the suspense of waiting at the top. I ended up riding both the drop and the shot two times each.
I then finished up my day by riding the Magnum and then going out to dinner at Costa Azul.
