Let me try...

Robb, you look scared. Is that because they already started dismantling Mean Streak while you were riding? :lmao:


I think that's how that works.

I'm planning a trip to CP on the last week of May into the first week of June. Specifically May 30th to June 2nd. Does anyone have an Idea of how crowded the park will be on these days from personal experience?

6/2 is Coastermania!.. I expect it to be packed, but no idea how the "special" stuff for Coastermania! attendees works. . .

(do they close off certain rides to the GP for ERT for Coastermania! attendees?)

Most of the ERT is before/after operating hours. I think the only exceptions are during Passholder/Resort Guest early entry although even that seems to not be the case this year. You should be fine.

Getting a hotel (off-site) might be trickier than usual due to Ohio Bike Week, which is based in Sandusky and runs all of that week (figured that out two years ago when we weren't able to find any hotels on booking websites and then was able to get in the Breakers by going on CP's official website). The Point should be fine (Friday might be a little busier than the other days due to Coastermania)
Top 10 coasters: 1. Millennium Force; 2. Incredible Hulk; 3. Maverick; 4. Raptor; 5. Top Thrill Dragster; 6. Valravn; 7. GateKeeper; 8. Kraken; 9. Rougarou; 10. Shivering Timbers

ERT can be anything from 15 minutes to a couple of hours. I think at the Cedar Point site, they had
a schedule of some kind there (subject to change, of course).

Found it. https://www.cedarpoint.com/play/events/coastermania Go here, and then look for the
first FAQ there... "What is the itinerary?"

:)

note, you have to be a member of a certified club to be able to buy a Coastermania! ticket.

(have you joined clubTPR?) :)
