^ That sounds like a personal choice. I don't think there is anything special this year that you won't get next year. Plus, you'll have Mean Streak next year. If you can't go this year, the park should be just as great, if not better, next year :b

Make a list of pros and cons? I think only you can answer that question given your life situation...

Seems like Coasterman missed the memo. . . So, for those who have forgotten:

Is that clear?


The only exception to this would be if Cedar Point themselves releases official construction photos or if someone from Cedar Point takes you to the construction site and makes it VERY CLEAR TO EVERYONE that it is ok to take said photo.

I'm assuming CPrundown is an unofficial/fan-run website from this.

I guess you guys are right about it being a personal choice. I have a relatively small window to be able to go this year (no later than July), so it all just depends on how much free time me and my parents have before that time. I'm really just stuck on the whole Mean Streak thing. Make the long trip to Ohio this year only to want to go back a year later, or just save up all my excitement for next year. I guess I could stick with just Dorney and Kings Dominion (and possibly Carowinds) for another year, but I'm worried that I will miss the opportunity to ride/do something at Cedar Point if anything closes this year.

Before it picture gets taken down and the poster is banned, Maverick definitely looks like it got a much needed repaint.... but maybe that's just because of the lighting.

I have a question for you Cedar Point people. I would really enjoy going to Cedar Point this year for the first time, but the chances of that happening are looking rather slim at the moment. Would it be better to just wait for next year to attempt to visit (especially since Mean Streak will probably be open next year), or should I try hard to go this year?

Don't waste your money going this year if you can only go one of the two years. I am in the same boat and have chosen to go back to SFGADv this year and wait out till 2018 to go back to Cedar Point.

I really don't see how this is that hard of a decision. The water park and second breakers (?) expansion will be done this year and New Mean Streak more likely to be open in 2018. Go then and enjoy both, or atleast one (the one that appeals to pretty much all us coaster enthusiasts).

Those are just my 2 cents. Sure, go this year if you wosh, but I HIGHLY recommend against going this year if you can't go again in 2018.
