"Awesome rides! "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 02, 2019 NEW
I came here for the first time in August 2015 with my dad & we were visiting from Southern Illinois & the experience was amazing so I came back to visit with my brothers & my mom! The rides are exceptional & we love all the Snoppy themed stuff! It's awesome for thrill seekers like me & my 15 year old brother, but beware of the lines, especially if you don't have Fast Lane. 2 hour wait times for Steel Vengeance even if you wait to go on it til 8 or 9pm. Valravan was unfortunately broke down the week we visited because the week before we visited the brakes failed & the train crashed into the the train in front of it & they told us it was closed cause they had to order new ride vehicles. The rides are some of the best in the world like Steel Vengeance, Top Thrill Dragster, & Millenium Force! Gatekeeper is also very underrated & is another one of my favorites!

A group of seven drove down for the weekend. The day started with little chance of rain to a full out downpour. We left to check in to our hotel and change before heading back for the evening. The rain eventually stopped and the kids were able to get on most all the rides and do the extra Halloween things. Despite the weather they enjoyed the day and stayed until the very end.

First off: do not attempt going on just a Saturday unless you are willing to buy a Fast Lane or Plus, and a Fright Lane for the indoor / outdoor fright zones.The crowds will be very heavy. Avoid Columbus Day weekend for the same reason. On the Fridays many rides are closed and park hours are short so this is when to hit the fright zones and skip buying the pass. Cornstalkers is a slow moving exhibit so the line was long and started forming an hour before the opening time. Blood on the Bayou moved fast and Cut Throat Cove was pretty brisk too. The costuming and decoration in them were great. There are also freaks in certain areas of Frontier town - fun! Sunday is also busy but not quite as insane. We had rain on one Sunday early on and waited it out by watching a glassblowing demonstration. Definitely cool. Note: no outdoor fright zones on Sundays, just the houses. Rides do go “down” on a regular basis. My son was in line 45 minutes and the coaster closed right before he would have got on. We also got stuck on the Gemini for about 15 minutes due to a mechanical issue. The sky ride was not in service both weekends but the train was running. Dress in layers and tie a coat around your waist. It can get pretty cold at night, even in early October. We nearly froze on the 4th! The coat is also handy to store protein bars and other edibles. For light eaters who want park food, buy an all day dining pass and split a meal every couple hours. My son and I ate $60 worth for a $32 pass plus tax and were not hungry. Best value is Back Beat Que, Pink’s (Long Island dog is delish) Johnny Rocket’s and Hugo’s. Try putting a cooler of food in your car and visit the parking lot to tailgate because the lines for food are simply awful on Saturdays. 1 hour at Pink’s and Chik Fil-A, 30 min at Happy Friar and 20 each at Hugo’s and Back Beat. Waits for beverages are ridiculous too. We just used the drinking fountains. Don’t eat at Coaster’s, it’s terrible. For $2 more, a very good burger can be bought at the red fire truck right across the way. I hope he’s back next year! There are other food trucks in a cluster near the Iron Dragon. Save some more money and stay at one of the smaller family owned motels. I suggest Sandusky Inn (new owners as of May 2019) and South Shore Inn. All you are doing there is sleeping, anyway. Get a big breakfast at a local restaurant and plan to be at that parking lot entrance by 10:30 AM or earlier if you are not staying in a CP hotel. On Saturday, leave the park at 11 pm, not closing time of midnight, or it will be like getting out of a rock concert. This applies to weekend nights in general, especially if the weather is good. Speaking of that, for those who don’t need to plan way ahead, keep an eye on the forecast for Sandusky. Being situated on a Great Lake means weather can change quickly. There are no refunds for park closings due to rain or wind, so be prepared to reschedule if at all possible. They also WILL turn away guests if at capacity. It happened on both of our Saturdays there. So get in early! The park is cracking down on loose items, even eyewear, especially for the more intense coasters. Expect your phone to be confiscated at Steel Vengeance. We saw the Magnum get stopped part way up the hill because someone was recording on a phone and the operator ran out there to take it away. Same for the Blue Streak while I was on. Definitely pisses everyone else off. Hope this helps you all plan for next year. It was our first time doing Halloweekends and we loved it!
