Thanks, Adam, for giving me a glimpse into what it feels like being a first-time visitor to Cedar Point. I've never been there, but it's always intrigued me with its lineup of coasters!! I also so much enjoyed your commentary on the park's history. From the Pavilion to the museum, its great that Cedar Point takes genuine pride in its history. (I love the 'old prizes." As a collector of dog memorabilia, I have some of the old Chalkware figurines. Inasmuch as the stuff is amazingly fragile, today's coaster vibrations would probably knock them off the shelves of those old game booths! :lmao:

Our second day at Cedar Point was more about the smaller attractions (though we got in a few extra rides on some of the coasters) and experiencing more of the historical elements of the park...

Amazing reports as always! =) I haven't been to Cedar Point since my first visit in 2013 when GateKeeper opened, but it's always great to get a refresher from other theme park junkies! ;)

There are signs in the Valravn queue with a black box and revised text over the word "Descent" also. Their graphic designer seems to have an issue with that word. :lol:

It's refreshing to hear that I'm not the only one who has Raptor as their favorite B&M invert, love that ride and fully plan to abusive my Fastlane privileges on it in September.

Very cool! There are so many little things at CP that are so cool. Glad you got to enjoy Windseeker and Derby and all the rest. The park may be known for its coasters, but there's so much more than that to experience, and you've captured it well.

Great report! The museum really is one of the hidden gems of Cedar Point.

Angle of decent. It'd be bad enough to make that mistake once, but multiple times? :lol:

You showed me two things I’m pretty sure I will buy when I visit later this season. Great Report.
