Great photos.

(Peeks outside) still looks very familiar. For another hour or so until we head to airport.

I have some comments on your comments. From my perspective as a first time visitor, but will do that when I'm home and on computer instead of phone. LOL

Great pics. I'm sure better than some of the ones I took on my iPhone. Heh

What's with the donkeys anyway?

I love this report. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos. I attended Coastermania! as well and had the time of my life. You did a great job capturing everything the boat cruise had to offer and more.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

As always Andy, your pictures are amazing.

Thanks for taking the time to share them. Someday, some far away day, I will make it up there for Coastermania.

Totally agree. We waited about 10 minutes and realized even when the shuttle arrived that there wouldn't be enough space for all those waiting. Either have buses in the morning or open the WindSeeker gate for entrance. We ended up driving around to the main parking lot, doing ERT, and then driving back to the Breakers.

Awesome trip report per usual Andy! Ever since HWN and Coastermania weekends have aligned, I have chosen HWN over Coastermania. However, with CP capping the attendance (and the boat cruise!), I may have try to do the event again next year (especially with the rebirth of Mean Streak). I share your sentiments about MF. Despite having ridden many top-tier coasters, I still put ol' Millie at the top of my steel list.

I may think about doing Coastermania next year (even if I'd have to take a day off work)
Top 10 steel: Millennium Force, Maverick, Incredible Hulk, Banshee, Diamondback, Raptor, Top Thrill Dragster, Valravn, GateKeeper, Kraken

What time did y'all get up?

We were up at 5:45 and at front of breakers by 6. First shuttle was full when we got there but 2nd one was right behind it.

We were at front gate and lined up 10 minutes before they started letting folks check in

So weird to have folks at the same place w different experiences. I had a few issues with Breakers. But the shuttle for coastermania (and over to famous daves on Sunday) wasn't one of them

Awesome job, Andy...thank you for sharing the great shots!

I really need to get over to that restaurant across Sandusky Bay to have a beer and just bask in the great view from that angle. We've been to Battery Park and Marblehead, but this looks like another great way to take it in one of the best skylines on the planet.

And I agree about your vote for the best airtime hill at CP, although I love the last two hills on MF too! ;)
