Question to regular CP-goers/those who have experienced:
CP during Math and Science week.

How are the crowds? Should be going on a Monday or Tuesday and it's Math and Science week, I'm hoping it won't be that bad!

It'll be busy. On top of the school groups, Monday is the traditional Senior Skip Day for Ohio schools. I was there last year on the first Monday, and it was one of the busiest days at the park I saw all season.

Tuesday is what I'm planning. So how were the lines?

I've experienced many types of 'busy' :lol: Hopefully after 3-4PM it'll clear up a bit. Park's open 'till 8.

Millennium Force, Maverick, Dragster, and Raptor were all about an hour and a half wait. Magnum's line was down into the switchbacks and around a half hour. I was there from early entry to close and got seven total rides.

Tuesday might not be as bad, but I wouldn't expect crowds to be light.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I made the mistake in going there during M&S week in previous years. The park is overrun with kids, stays like that practically all day long, and you can expect to have decent wait for all major rides. Granted, the park it not weekend in July or August crowded, but the crowds are not light by any means either. I'd suggest staying away during that time if possible. You're better off going on a Sunday in May or early to mid June...park's empty.

Thanks for the responses. We're stuck to a Monday or Tuesday (planning on Holiday World Monday and CP Tuesday). Hey, as long as we get on all the major rides I'm fine. I've never had trouble with TTD being down everytime I'm there, so hopefully we won't this time!

I see, well good luck. You most likely will have no problem riding everything, it's just going to take longer than you want (or at least seem so because of all the screaming kids, lol) and you will probably get increasingly annoyed as the day goes on. If you can tolerate those, then you're golden. :p

^ Little kids are so annoying! Especially the ones that chicken out at the front of the line. In Cleveland, you either ride Millennium Force or you ride Millennium Force. (Bad experiences...)

Anyways, really pumped for CoasterMania. Any expectations on crowds?

I'm sure that there will be a ton. Just from looking at trip reports from previous years, the "ERT" is really just the park open for a couple extra hours. Isn't CoasterMania over a couple days now? Maybe that would help the crowds a bit.
