It was my niece's sweet 16 birthday to we stayed at the Castaway Bay for our weekend celebration. We thought that staying at Cedar Point resorts we would benefit with the extra perks that come along with the property. Never again, the hotel housekeeping never made up our room that weekend. We had to call the front desk to get toilet paper. Sinks hardly drained in bathroom. The water slide lines were so long because they didnt have the staffing to open all of them up. Not fun at all. We still looked forward to our Cedar Point day with early entry for resort guest the next day. We raced into the park to Steel Vengeance (just like everyone else) and got into the line hoping to enjoy this early entry perk. Well....we stood in line 1 hour and 30 minutes with not one employee announcing anything to us about the current situation. There was zero communication! After watching test trains after test trains we were fed up and left the line. Our early entry perk was a total loss. 😡 At that point we wanted to find food...half the places were closed and the ones that were open had lines out the door like the rides! I did find 2 slices of cheese pizza (they were out of pepperoni) for $7 a piece...similar to the size and taste of a frozen pizza. The park really needs to get it together. I have been going there for over 30 years and this trip was very disappointing. Remember:early entry does not mean all rides ready to go at 9am like we all expect at Disney. Cedar Point marches to their own beat...short staffed and terrible customer service. Thank goodness for those thrilling coasters. It is the only thing keeping them alive.

Cedar Point is the best place for thrill seekers. The weather was a little tricky this past weekend but still able to get a lot of ride time in. Some rides have to shut down during high winds/rain which is understandable so be sure to check weather reports before booking your trip.

I took my daughters to Cedar Point Park on Thursday May 16 and Friday May 17, 2019 and I will share some information that I hope travelers find helpful regarding Weather, Fast Lane, Crowds, Lines, etc for this time of year. Weather: We live in Houston TX, 1,300 miles away and it was a 22 hour drive. For the whole week the forecast was 50 - 80% rain chances on either day. Since I decided to purchase my tickets in advance, it didn't matter if it was 100% chance, we were still going since there were no refunds or rain checks. Thursday was sunny with a high temp of 78 and Saturday was cloudy, drizzly in the morning, and temps never rose above 60, but it didn't rain until the park closed. So the forecast was wrong, which was in our favor. Tickets(Fast Lane): I purchased the two day any day pass for $83 each. Two regular parking passes for $20 each. Because it is early in the year, there is no need to order preferred parking. I mean, if your gonna do a lot of walking anyway so why pay to save a few hundred feet this early in the season? I purchased the Fast Lane Plus tickets for Friday only for about $95 each Crowds: Both days the parking lot was full of tour buses and school buses, so expect a bunch of teenagers in the park. (A Bunch!) I would not recommend getting there when the park opens as there are bus loads of teens at the entrance. We arrived an hour later both days and there was no line to get into the park. The amount of teens was discouraging, which is why I was glad that I purchased the Fast Lane Plus Passes for Friday. Remember, the teens are there on a field trip so there will be very few people with Fast Lane Passes,. Even though there were a lot of teenagers there, most of the regular rides had very shot lines on Thursday. The rides that had longer lines were the top coasters which as to be expected.Other rides were 15 to 20 minute waits, or less. Fast Lane Plus: I bought the Fast Lane Plus for me and my girls because there was no way I was driving 22 hours to wait in line for hours and only ride like 5 or 6 of the good rides. You can go on the rides as many times as you want,but it will still average about 6 to 8 dollars per ride as there will be delays, people will throw up and they will need to clean it up, they will need to add cars or remove cars, switch out staff, handi-cap riders,general maintenance, wind delays, etc. Also rides like Millennium Force will still be at least a 20 min wait because of where you enter the ride on the Fast Lane, you don't enter at the front of every ride. And if you want to ride in the front it will also be about a 10 to 20 min wait for the top 5 coasters there. Still not bad. Pretty much we averaged 4 to 5 rides per hour, even if we rode some back to back. Ride Choices: One thing I noticed is that we were able to ride Top Thrill Dragster 5 times and Steel Vengeance 4 times and although every time was fun, it was nothing compared to the waiting and anticipating the ride. The fist time was exciting, by the 3rd time you're posing for the cameras. So you will get spoiled, but it is still worth it. In 9 hours we were able to ride 16 different rides (Including riding some multiple times). It takes time to walk to rides so have a game plan so you don't spend time walking long distances in between rides. Ride the ride back to back if you like. I would not recommend riding the lesser carnival type rides of smaller roller coasters if you have a Fast Lane Pass. Other wise, your wasting your money. Ride those big coasters as much as you can.I have been to at least 6 different Six Flags amusement Parks and there are a lot of the same types of rides at every park, so don't waste your time riding those when you have a Fast Lane, unless necessary, like for your kids who may have not had a chance to ride such a similar ride yet. On both days a couple of hours before the park closed and the teens had to go back to the buses the lines were very short. At 9:30 on Friday no line for Top Thrill Dragster and Gate Keeper. Maverick and Steel Vengeance always had long lines though.Steel Vengeance was at least a 90 minute wait all day and 45 minutes at 9:30 PM both days. Keep in mind that there will be ride delays. People will throw up, rides will shut down, Top Thrill will have roll back that will cause delays. So even though you have a Fast Lane, you may still end up waiting 20 - 30 minutes for some rides, even this early in the season. But you can always get out of line if it looks like a long delay and come back. Something that regular riders can't do. You will be spoiled if you have to wait longer that 10 minutes to ride a ride, because we were. And now it will be hard to wait in line for future amusement parks. But it was so worth it!

This was our first visit to Cedar Point. I made the 930 mile trip from Tulsa Oklahoma because we had heard about the record number roller coasters here. Visited the park on May 15th and May 16th And we decided for the second day To purchase a fast Lane plus pass add on package which includes Front of the line access to all of the major rides, A food and drink wristband, fun pix wristband, and because we stayed at the Cedar point hotel property we also had 1 hour early access to the park before it opened. We arrived early the 1st so we went to the park on the 15th instead of waiting till the next day because the weather was so nice. Our 1st day we had a good time until we decided to eat at Johnny Rockets around 6:50 PM (The park is open till 8PM). When we went to open the door it was locked and the girl just hollered through the door “were closed” and they all started giggling, So we left the park hungry and decided to get dinner offsite after we went back to our hotel. The 2nd day IT JUST GOT WORSE. We arrived at the park 1 hour early before the general public was let it. We went over to ride our 1st ride and afterwards you have to visit the fun pix Booth so they can issue you your card for your photos. It took a while to get it because the girl was having issues with it but once we got it we scanned the picture and went over next to ride Millenium Force. Unfortunately the ride got stuck just short of the top of the 320 ft lift hill. We were stranded up there for just over 30 minutes and didn’t hear from anyone till about 20 minutes in. At first it was pretty stressful because they didn’t come on this speaker and tell us anything and there were some smaller kids on the ride who were crying. Fortunately they did finally come up expected under the car, Went back down and restarted the ride. After the ride we were given a coupon for a free ride on steel vengeance. (Which was of little value to me since I already had a fast pass plus wrist band). After that experience I decided I needed to go sit down and have some food and a drink and we went over to Chickie and Pete’s sports bar-they were just opening at 11 AM and we went to sit down the lady that was working at the bar and front booths looked annoyed that they had customers coming in right away. Having a food wristband you’re supposed to take a piece of paper to the first restaurant you visit and have them scan it so you can get a wristband. She did not know what to do with it and had to get someone to help her and then the first words out of her mouth was you cannot get adult beverages with this. I didn’t want an adult beverage I just wanted to sit down and relax after that stuck on the ride experience. Next I told her we wanted to try their famous crab fries then she proceeded to tell me that the food wristband was was only good for 3 items on the menu and that the crab fries were not covered and she also told me they’re just fries with bay seasoning, so we politely told her thank you and decided to go eat at Johnny Rockets. We were seated at Johnny Rockets and sat there for over 10 minutes no one came to the table or offered us a drink, but we picked up our menu and went to the soda fountain in the restaurant and 1 of the the workers just standing around came over and told us the soda fountain was closed. She suggested we get a to go order. The whole purpose of having a sit down restaurant is so guests can sit down and enjoy the meal. We ended up leaving after that and I went to the guest services booth up front to register a complaint. They sent out a very young teenager to listen to my complaint. I gave him every opportunity to make the situation right and all he wanted to do was offer us free tickets for future visits. Very disappointed and will likely never return👎👎
