"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.

Overall a fun time, covid has them running a little slower than normal since they have social distancing and cleaning procedures in place, but they are doing a good job keeping it fun in spite of it all! The rides are amazing!

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.

First off, expect to walk, a lot! This sprawling theme park is huge!! Get there as soon as the park is open and plan to wait in line. Bring water with you during the warm weather days, that being said, the restrooms are well placed and have operating water fountains. Be sure to have small items secured because most of these coasters are crazy! We waited over an hour for Top Thrill Dragster, that one takes off at 120mph and goes straight up 420 corkscrewing feet before cresting the top and racing back down again. So intense!! You can expect long lines as most of the largest, most thrilling rides have scheduled time tickets. There was one coaster, Steel Vengeance, that had all of the scheduled time tickets GONE before 11:20am (the park opened at 11:00) with the next tickets being distributed at 3:30. By 3:10 there was a line a QUARTER MILE LONG of people waiting to, maybe, get a pass to ride!! All of the team members were friendly and courteous. They have stringent mask/ distancing/ and sanitizing rules in place to ensure everyone’s safety. This causes a fair amount of delays in the lines as riding is halted to spray the rides down and run them empty to dry them out. I look forward to returning when Covid is over as the experience will be a lot more fun, fast and joyful without breathing through a mask. Have fun, it’s still worth it.
