Trip Report: Cedar Point on May 29, 2011
For my 2nd trip of the season, I started in the back with Maverick and then walked down the Frontier Trail to Millennium Force.
After an amazing ride on the Force, I headed over to Mantis, which I now regret because it hurts way too much in too many places.
On the way out to the car to change into a swimsuit, I stopped for a ride on the Magnum, which also hurt. I guess it depends on which seat in. After a quick change in the car, I headed over to Shoot the Rapids where I got in 5 rides with very little wait.
It looks like all of its problems have been fixed. They even added mist to the top of the 2nd hill.
I then headed to the car for lunch. After lunch I went over to the Gemini games determined to win a Minion. After beating a girl in the first round to win a cheap bear, I then played against myself to finally win a Minion!
After that I headed down the boardwalk to check on WindSeeker.
Then I rode Troika and Ocean Motion.
Moving on, I took the SkyRide over to the Frontier Trail so I could see Grand Ole Country. It’s exactly the same show as last year and the cast seems worse. I’m sure it will grow on me, but I never really liked the show anyway. Next up was Tropical Heat, Island Beat. It was great as usual! When I was leaving the Garter, I saw dark clouds and heard thunder.
So I joined the crowd of people heading out to their cars, but of course I pulled out my video camera and filmed the whole thing. So that was how my day ended.
