Why they gotta keep saying "they... They... They're... They?!?!"

Like, WHO DA F**K IS THEY?!

No, I refuse to entertain the idea of dueling New Mean Streak.

Shots are wonderful! We know why a drone was flying the other day!

Oh okay so it's gonna duel with itself.


Glad they finally confirmed that.

Camera is toast. Confirmed after further inspection that it's a shutter problem.

The last photo my camera ever took -- this is, uh, not normal.

Good news is I do still have some more to post from earlier in the day, and hey, I'm having a great time anyway!

Should also mention this: crowds today have been very manageable. Maybe the earlier-in-the-week forecasts helped keep people from planning trips here today? Had a 4-train wait for Dragster at 2PM -- when does that ever happen? Millennium Force was station waits from about 930AM-1030AM (notable because it was actually longer during the official CoasterMania ERT). Longest lines I've seen for anything on the app have been about 20 minutes, though I'd wager the big Intamins might have snuck up to around a half hour at times. Most of the second-tier coasters have been station waits to maybe 5 minutes.

The Q&A session with Tony C, Jason M, Rob D, and others was fun (and funny) even if there wasn't a whole lot of really new information. But a few hints and nuggets that might be worth sharing later. Oh, and I know at least one TPR member had a finalist entry in the photo contest (not me) so hopefully we'll bring home the prize!

Taking a short break but still got ERT to go tonight and it's going to be great.

:lol: They're completely trolling the people who think this is going to be a dueling coaster with that opening shot. I love that they released this during Coastermania so everyone can fawn over it during tonight's ERT. The Cedar Point marketing team is outstanding at what they do.

PS: No, It's not a dueling coaster holy sh*t.

It could be referencing Outlaws in the wild west. They're coming, Outlaws are coming.

I feel like it's something along those lines too. My guess is that "they're coming" is probably either a reference to RMC or the theme / name of the ride.

Quick update before I head back to the park ... with a few shots from the cruise!

This looks interesting.

Same "what-the-heck" thing I posted the picture of yesterday, but from a little further out on the water.
