^ In the past, yes definitely, you had whole midways to yourself, but not as much now. Ever since they added "Math and Science Week" to their events schedule a few years ago (which is opening week every year), the park is completely overrun by kids...it's extremely annoying, I'll never go during opening week again as long as it's still an event.
They recently added something (new within the past couple years, if not this year, I believe) the second week also called "Amusement Park 101 Week," which sounds very similar to M&S week. They are realizing how dead the park is and are adding events to attract more people during those slow times. It was nice having literally the ENTIRE park to ourselves before M&S week was added (I recall instances where we were the ONLY ONES on the pathways at times...I remember looking all around and not seeing a soul), but I could easily tell that it was hurting them, and that it wouldn't last too long before some event was added to draw more people. I wonder how bad that second, "Amusement Park 101" week will be?
By the time all these "events" are over, it's already time for Coastermania and kids to get out of school. I think the dead weekdays at Cedar Point in May might be on their way out.
