started off thursday afternoon....and started on our trek from Baltimore to Sandusky. during most of the ride....my buddy was telling us of his problems at work and problems with his girl... (he wasn't having a fun week).
but we got there ok at the cedar point resort hotel and had some dinner and whatnot.... we found out that resort people got to get into the park an hour earlier than the rest of the general population!!!
so we started out with the 2 rides that were open:
millenium force (that's the first drop)
and Mantis - a standup rollercoaster.
the real treat was
that ride was the new one and there wasn't a single time when we were waiting for the ride broke down. but it was worth the ~2hr wait. you get launched from 0-120 in 4 seconds (face being pulled back acceleration) and you go straight up for 420 feet and come straight down...and your ride is over
20 seconds of pure fun
one other highlight:
it was a really fun weekend..and a decent distraction to my friend's problems (except for those waits in line )
drove back on saturday night and caught some saturday night 80's stations on the way back...
