^^Keep in mind that some days are already full and there are plenty of people waiting and hoping for spots to open up.

People have been mad that the parks didn't open when it should of. Parks open and they find something that will not change your day and all and complain about it. I just learned that some people will complain about anything. You could give them a free fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo and would complain that the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo is free.

truthfully the $2 is worth the peace of mind. I hate having anything in my pockets I am worried the whole ride that something might come out. Rather enjoy the ride and give the park a few bucks. Also this year that 2 dollars might mean more to the park than me.

The ride lines closing early is interesting, I was at Kings Island Sunday and got in line right about closing with no issues. With that said the line was about a 4 train wait.

That's why I want to cancel. I just wish they'd make it as easy to cancel as it is to sign up.


edit: I called and got bounced around to a few different people and then put on hold. I gave up and moved my reservation out as far as I could, hoping there is a better system for cancellation in place before then.

Also, the 'contact us' link on the website said, "Give us a call or send a note..." Couldn't find a number. I had to google to get the guest services phone number.

Great point! I'll go with this perspective from now on. CF really is providing pass holders with great value, (nearly) two seasons for the price of one.

Millennium Force isn't going to have a 4 train wait though. Especially not now. If it did, they wouldn't close it early that day.

This all makes sense since the park needs to try to salvage something of this season financially and they have no staff, so they probably don't feel like paying people overtime or needing more than one shift.

Did the overtime laws change in Ohio for seasonal amusement venues this year? I'm guessing paying overtime still isn't a thing at the park... but besides the point (ha), I get what you're saying.

Based on early reviews of the park on day #1 it sounds like a shitshow. Return passes (wannabe freeway) for the big 3 that were still open but still several hour waits with a return time. Yikes.

bRiNg It BaCk!!!!

So, KI is now selling FP+ (no regular FP, just +) Just bought some online. Wonder if CP will do the same? Since we will be at CP for two days I am probably more likely to wait until we get there and scope it out. Will keep my eye on it.

^^Cedar Point is a bit of an operational show show right now with half the rides closed and 1-3 hour lines even after handing out “boarding passes” for Steel Vengeance, Millennium, and Maverick. Even ADA lines were backed up down the respective staircases of each coaster. Kings Island seems to be off to a much smoother start so it makes sense that they would reimplement Fast Lane Plus, but I definitely don’t see that working at Cedar Point any time soon.

With that being said, my friends and I still had a wonderful time at the park today despite high temps, long lines, and lots of closures. It’s simply a special place to be (with some truly kickass coasters) and I’m just glad I got the chance to visit while I’m on this side of the country.

On a negative note, they’ve demolished the trees around Red Garter Saloon and Panda Express and it has absolutely ruined the area. Does anyone know when this happened and/or why?
