Tired Out

We attended Opening Day at Cedar Point today. If the line for season passes today is any indication, they should have a good season. High gas prices might be good for Cedar Point, keeping people closer to home. I'm glad we have season passes, as today was very disappointing as far as rides. Blue Streak broke down, MaxAir was down, SkyHawk went down, Maverick was down, and the Wave Swinger was closed as well. This also had an effect on park dispersion. With so many rides down, it made other lines more crowded.

On the other hand, we got to see THE Ohio State University's spring marching band, and the beagle that took best of show at the Westminster. So, you know, totally worth it.

I was a little confused by the new Planet Snoopy area. So many rides are identical to rides in Camp Snoopy, further back. But the Scientist overheard someone say that those rides were transferred from Geauga Lake, which is now strictly a waterpark, and that makes sense. I don't understand the new Joe Cool Cafe being basically for kids, though. The only thing for adults on the menu is pizza.

I'm hoping to lose some weight by walking around Cedar Point this summer!

You have season passes to Cedar Point? I'm so jealous! I love roller coasters and that is the best park for those. We live closer to King's Island though, so always end up going there. How long of a drive is it for you?

TTYS, Sniz

Sniz, it is about 45 minutes for us to get to Cedar Point. A great get-away that's close by!
