This year we were able to attend the media event for rougarou and opening weekend at cedarpoint. I really don't like to write up huge trip reports, so I will simplify this with pictures and key points.
1.Rougarou was great...huge improvement and very forceful coaster 2.Sweet spot had lot's of goodies 3.Hotel breakers is looking good 4.Lakeside pavilion looks wonderful 5. Millennium force is now sporting fiberglass trains. 6. Mavericks new restraints are a big improvement. 7. The park has added more coke freestyle machines 8. The staff seems really friendly this year
1.It was very obvious that the park was not ready to open. 2 Wicked twister was in pieces still 3.Lots of rides never opened, or if they did it was late. 4. Tiki twirl never opened. 5. 3/4 of the pools at hotel breakers did not open because they accidently put too many chemicals into them. This is from a company that operates several waterparks and hotels with pools. 6. A lot of prices and menus were from last year and not updated.
Onto the pictures....
We started the day at 5am for the media preview.
Rougarou has a few effects like fog and sounds coming from the swamp

Nice photos! Glad to hear that Rougarou is a great improvement. (Although, we already knew it would be!) Looks like some nice changes at the park for this season! Can't wait to see what the future holds! Thanks for sharing! Getting me super excited for our visit this summer!!
Even more amazing photos! Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see the next set of photos. Also, very interesting Wicked Twister photos. It's interesting to see the coaster like that. I've always wondered how they got the train on and off the track for the off season.
