I'm so glad that ugly stadium is gone. :lol:

Please replace it with a beach bar and outdoor seating on the lake side. Please. Please.


True! The tables outside at Fridays are pretty good, but they can do better.

Let's not forget they put in the swim up bar in the waterpark this year! Did anyone visit that this year/take pictures? Let's see em


Oh man, the swim up bar at Cedar Point Shores is so good! There's no children allowed and they ID everyone going in. It's right on the water and has a great view of Magnum's turnaround. They sell beer and mixed drinks. Our crew had quite a few margaritas! Best place to take a break from the park in the middle of the day, cool down and have some drinks.


Good to hear! Sounds like the perfect break from the park (and people) if you can catch a slow 2/3pm hour.

Remember a week or so ago when everyone was talking about Winterfest?

Good times, good times.

I think it's more baffling Millennium isn't on Fastlane Plus than GateKeeper being there.

You want to sell both. I think it's smart to keep the newer rides on the Plus list.

^ I agree with this. Millennium Force is awesome, maybe the best coaster I've ever been on, but Gatekeeper sells a lot of tickets too. It's super popular, and for good reason. It's a really great and really accessible coaster.

It's been 4. I would've thought they would put SV on plus and take GK off to keep the number at 4.

I do not see any value in the regular Fast Lane the way they have it laid out. It doesn't really matter though because I have plus for my visit anyway.

^ agreed. I'm glad with the current setup that we get plus for the regular price with our platinum pass. I can't imagine paying $80-$100 for just regular
