Yes, I remember. She looks more excited than when she saw Outlaw Run I think =) And that might be the most exciting moment of the whole trip for a lot of people. I have never been that excited when I saw a wild mouse :lol:

BAYSIDE STATION!!!

Another day, another update, another SIX FLAGS Park!

This time, I'm reporting from Six Flags Great America! I really liked that park, not only because they gave us ERT on Raging Bull and Viper backwards, but because the park was really nice! Same procedure as every day: Arriving at the park, getting all the wristbands, meal vouchers and that stuff, going through security and and and. Since we had morning ERT on Raging Bull, we were allowed to enter the park BEFORE the GP! The coaster was fun, but I didn't like the trim breaks :D So it was only meh... Nevertheless, we had a fun time during the ERT and we were also allowed to be first riders on X-Flight since it was not on Qbots! The park was so friendly to give us an optional ''fast lane'' ticket for X-Flight so that we could ride it one more time during the day! I didn't take advantage of it, because I'm not a huge fan of wingriders. The ride was ok, but nothing more. A wingrider. Elissa handed out the Qbots at the exit of X-Flight so we had time to explore the park! It was really hard for me to get all the credits, not because it was crowded, but because I had that terrible TPR bus flu :D I was really tired and exhausted, but no time to cry! :D

SFGAm offered us a great buffet for lunch and we had an optional backstage tour of the park which was really nice! I was REALLY tired but I wanted to do the tour and I don't regret having done it :) They showed us all the stuff which is behind the scenes :P After that tour we had another couple of hours to explore the park before it was time for ERT on Flow Rider! It was fun to watch all the members doing the Flow Rider. I was just too sick to do it, so I skipped that one!

The perfect ending of that SIXtastic day was the VIPER backwards ERT! Six Flags put a DJ and a disco ball into the station and started partying! It was such a simple idea but it was AWESOME! Everyone had a good time and enjoyed that party night ERT! Really really good! I loved it, even though I felt terrible with that flu! Thank you guys :)

With that being said, watch some photos!

Glad you enjoyed the park despite catching the TPR bus flu Marcel! It didn't hit me until Cedar Point, where at least I could take it a bit easier.

Have to agree with you about X-Flight. I'd heard reports that it was the best wingrider out there. What a totally uneventful ride. At least it lowered my expectations for Gatekeeper...

The op was able to open the restraints after they were locked. The maintenance guy had to tighten something on the train before they could let us go.

We made it to the POINT!
Welcome to Cedar Point, the best amusement park in the WORLD! I have been dreaming to come here since I was a little boy and saw Millennium Force on TV! Now the time had come to make this dream come true! What should I say? I LOVED Cedar Point and I had a VERY good time there! It was exactly the way I expected the park to be! Loud, busy and full of thrills!!! The atmosphere is AWESOME! Everywhere you look...COASTERS COASTERS and COASTERS! It's really cool!

We arrived at noon and got all the good stuff you needed to survive the next three days at the POINT! We had Fast Lane PLUS, which allowed us to skip the line of MANY thrills (including Dragster and the brand new Gatekeeper!) So, after having brought our luggage to our rooms (we stayed at Hotel Breakers), it was time to enter the park! Don't waste time, because there are a lot of coasters which want to be ridden, plus, we had an optional backstage tour of Millennium Force which was really really cool! Nice shots to get there!

After that behind the scenes tour, we had a couple more hours to explore the POINT before it was time for the AMAZING Maverick night ERT! So, take some rides on all the coasters that are on your way (I mean we had Fast Lane, so no worries about q's) and prepare for some crazy ERT!

As soon as all the GP got their last rides on Maverick for that day, TPR was allowed to enter Maverick's station! The majority of us agreed that the Maverick ERT was one of the BEST ERT'S TPR has ever experienced so far! Thank you a LOT for that awesome first day at the point guys! It was incredible!

So, keep arms down, hold on tight and enjoy your first ride on the POINT! (To be continued...)
