"First time to Sandusky "

Day at Cedar Point: Pulled in Thursday, and stayed at RV resort at the park, then hit park the next day (Friday). Key takeaways: 1. Sunset on Lake Erie is Amazing 2. Park opens at 10 (because of COVID) Rides start at 11. You have to pass a temperature test to gain admission. 3. We got to the front gate at 11:15, but because we bought our tickets off site, we had to wait for security for 30 minutes to verify ID. 3. If you stay at the park, you enter through your own special entrance. Security was at main gate, which is why it took them so long. We ended up not getting any 11 am passes. 4. The 4 main rides require you to stand in line to get an access pass, then wait agin to ride the ride. They only give out tickets at 11 and 3:30 until they are gone. In the end we waited 2 hours to ride Maverick and and hour for Millinium Force. 5. Park closed at 8 (because of COVID) 6. Basically this is the best roller coaster park in the world, and because of COVID is operating at a fraction of capacity. You have to plan for at least two days at the park to get’r done. 7. The staff is well trained at ensuring surfaces were wiped down, and people kept their masks on. 8. Very impressed with cleanliness of park and food options. Rides were best I have ever been on! Highly recommend. 9. The last picture is a picture of the water pump for RV. It was having a very bad day, and decided it needed to self quarentine for the duration of the trip, meaning not hot water!

"Not this year "

We have come annually to Cedar Point for several years and have always enjoyed our trips. This year was markedly different. I was more than prepared and actually welcomed the precautions - social distancing and face masks. I have to say the park did a good job with the entrance process and social distancing in the normal lines. The main cluster is the “access pass” which is the parks very lackluster try at a Disney fast pass for their most popular coasters. They give these out at 11 and 3:30 each day. First come first serve at the booths at the entrance to each ride. So when we arrived at 10:30 am - having left home at 6:30 am and driving 3.5 hours to get to the park we then waited in a not socially distanced line to get a pass. The issue is unlike Disney there is not customization of the pass so you may have a ticket for one ride from 1-2 and another from 2-3 but if the line for ride one is two hours long (which most are) you will lose the chance to ride the second ride which you stood in the crazy line to get the pass for in the first place. It is an AWFUL system. In addition the park staff moved the 3:30 Steel Vengeance line off the walk way and directed everyone waiting to jam into a very small space. One woman next to me said “I don’t know that riding a roller coaster should make me risk my life in line”. It was really a very very bad scene. In the end we rode two rides by 4 pm having arrived at 10:30 am. I spent 100 on drinks, several hundred more dollars on park passes and rooms for the night. All seems like money that would have been better spent elsewhere. From someone who is really trying to in a safe manner get out of my house would urge people to consider other options for this year and maybe next depending of the global situation. Have put a photo of the line mess with this post for illustration.

First time at this park, so tough to compare all facets. The wooden coasters were disappointing. Gemini (racing coaster) pales in comparison to Lightning Racer at Hershey Park. Blue Streak is not nearly as good as the Great American Scream Machine at Six Flags Georgia or the Phoenix at Knoebels. (comparable designs) The best coaster is Steel Vengeance, the reworked Mean Streak. It's close to being a wooden coaster in terms of fun and ride experience. Our day was impacted mostly by teal green shirt wearing ride "supervisors" who's only function is to hassle ride workers and riders, using Covid-19 as a reason to make power plays and act important. These clipboard carrying jerks angered lots of people throughout the park. Chick-Fil-A and Chickie's and Pete's were the same quality as any franchise. Beer choices skewed heavily towards light and fruit versions of Bud unfortunately. The park is larger than most and the steel coasters we rode were average (Maverick, ValRavn, Magnum). Spacing and Mask Enforcement for the pandemic were good. Hand sanitizer dispensers sometimes were empty, but we carried our own. Lack of cubbies at some of the coasters is just plain annoying, as other reviewers have remarked. All in all, just an average amusement park.
