Hello TPR! Another week, another CP update, another round of fun photos!

Every summer, Cedar Point organizes a so called ''Big Bash'' which means FOOD, RIDES and FUN with friends for employees only! Unfortunately, the weather was really bad (rain, rain, rain, have I mentioned rain?) and I lost my phone a couple of days later, so the only photo I can share is a group photo of our food party. Even Marcel the shell has bad times here at Cedar Point. Losing my phone is definitely not fun. However, the Big Bash was really cool! They had amazing food (buffets, popcorn, ice cream) and they opened up some of the games plus you could ride Millennium Force and Mantis. All in all a really fun time! They even had a fireworks for us which was a really nice surprise!

Since I'm international I don't get free tickets for the park as most of the American employees do, BUT I get free tickets for Challenge park (Skyscraper, Ripcord, Go Karts etc.), which all of the Americans don't get. That's why I took my friend Josh to Challenge park to conquer the rides there! We had a lot of fun!

My friend Janis and me did the Ice bucket challenge which means that you first name the people that you nominate to do the challenge, too, and if they don't do it, they have to donate money to a charity project. When I was working Top Thrill Dragster the other day, Tony Clark and its crew did the same thing and it looked like they had a fun time!

Cedar Point is closed during the week. That's why my friend and me went to the park to take photos of the rides and relaxing on the beach! I even went fishing for the first time of my life. It was really nice, since we went fishing right across from Cedar Point. The view of the skyline was stunning!

Great photos! I love the MF one. The bash looks fun, how was Sling Shot?

Honestly said, it's not that special.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Another great update.

Sorry to hear you weren't a fan of Sling Shot, I enjoyed it though Ripcord is a much, much better ride. Those things always manage to scare the crap out of me.

Cool TR. I'm glad you made an experience of your Summer working at Cedar Point. You are very enthusiastic and that's what the theme park industry needs employee wise. Thanks for also sharing little seen photos of the resort like the beach. Does anyone swim at that beach? Also I agree that the sling shot rides are nothing special. I rode a sling shot ride at Magic Mountain 10 years ago with the highest thrill setting and it wasn't nearly as thrilling as I thought it was going to be. The sky coaster I rode right afterward was way better. Anyways have fun working Haunt and I look forward to those photos as well. I need to get to Cedar Point someday.

^Thank you all for the nice comments! There is only a restricted area where you are allowed to ''swim'', but swimming is not really possible, because the restricted area is really small and you can stand everywhere.

^I heard it was because the water wasn't in the best "conditions". Is that right?
Once more, nice update.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

I was wondering if you knew why the mist on Iron Dragon was on even though the park was closed? Is it like, ALWAYS on or something?

It's not the cleanest water, that's true, but honestly said I don't know.

It's whether a timer or maintenance controls it. I'm not for sure, so I don't want to say something that is wrong ;)
