Hi everyone,
I was flying around Cedar Point earlier today and thought I'd snap you guys some pics! Not in any particular order cause we circled several times. Enjoy! :)

I'm not actually sure. I didn't notice that stuff until I was going through the photos otherwise I would've tried to zoom in on it.

^^^^ Beautiful pictures of the park and peninsula. I see finally the Space Spiral cabin is on the ground. It's been stuck in the middle for a long time. That should disappear soon too.
Coasternut,

Wow, thanks so much for sharing! There's something very awesome to me about aerials of parks. Mean Streak actually looks even better from up there!

It is neat to see those overhead shots of the former Disaster Transport plot. It is interesting to see just how much space is available now that the ride is gone.

As for the Space Spiral, I'm curious to see if the ride will be scrapped or disassembled to be sent to another park.

A brief trip report:

Went to the park yesterday with my wife, daughter, mom, and dad. My folks haven't been there in nearly twenty years, but this just worked out to be the perfect time schedule-wise to go for them, even though it was, shudder, a Saturday. I'm not sure if it was providence, or my pre-order of Fastlane passes, but the park was damn near dead. Millie and TTD were 15 minutes all day, and only Maverick saw a true boon to our red wristbands-Bwahaha, 45 minutes? Not today!

In any case, great trip, though my mom was bummed that Windseeker was down, she was excited for the view. I was honestly shocked how light the hordes were, and I would keep it a guarded secret just how toned down the crowds are the weekend after Labor Day, but before Halloweekends. Wink wink.

A brief aside:

I'm sure I'm not the first to notice this, but TTD ran great today in 70 degree weather! Is high heat the reason for the seemingly normal constant string of malfunctions on summer days?
