Yeah, I'd have to agree. I say save yourself the money and stay elsewhere.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Staying at Cedar Point is very convenient though...

First you don't have to worry about driving/parking lots, second it's great to head back to an air conditioned room during the middle of the day and recharge the batteries, third it makes things a lot simpler at the end of the day. Sure you are paying more, but I have always found staying on property to be pretty enjoyable and give the trip that "vacation" feel.

Here's Cp's new map for 2011. A couple of things to take note of, first the beach entrance will be returning, just at a slight angle. Second, is that a three point challenge in the spot of Chaos? If so I do not approve.

Glad to see the beach entrance back.

Where is the 3 point challenge? I don't see it listed anywhere, and I can't tell from the map.

^^I can't tell but it wouldn't be a bad idea. The one behind Toft's never gets any attention compared to the one near the train crossing. It would also probably reduce the number of people that watch the one near the train crossing. With the food place and all of the tables right next to it, it is pretty hard to get around. That area is usually sooo crowded during busy days.

If you zoom way in to about 300% you can see what does appear to be a 3 point set up. It will be a better location for that game no doubt, but I would rather see a ride go there. I have a thing about rides being replaced by non rides. Maybe I'm greedy. haha

I'm never happy to see a Chaos go. These things were everywhere and then the MiA incident and no one seems to want them anymore. I'm not much of a fan of flat rides, even ask ^Greg^, but I'll never turn down a ride on a Chaos. It's sad to see it go and I was upset when I saw it gone when I just took pictures of the park.

^I will agree that a ride on Chaos is nothing to pass up, but the one at Cedar Point was kind of a piece...it was down all the time due to hydraulic problems and the mechanics never really knew how to fix it. Not to mention the employees weren't too fond of the restraints :Pr

^Everything I've ever heard about Chaos rides is that they are giant heaps of doo doo. In fact, a park I once worked at was looking into getting a new ride. Upon hearing that a Chaos ride was up for sale, the operations manager inquired about the ride to the general manager. The GM's response, "Hell no I'm not buying one of those pieces of sh*t." True story.

They can't disappear soon enough.
