Six Flags Trivia

   This post is carrying on my usual documenting of changes to the park, which are primarily done for my own benefit, but which (to the best of my knowledge) only one other person here cares about. So, if you’re not that person, feel free to move on… Although these are generally the only Six Flags pictures which I post publicly; because the other sets have my son in them and any pictures like that are friends-locked by default. So if you can’t see them, tough noogies.

   The carousel got a new paint job. All of the animals are bright and colorful and shiny. Some of the animals have normal animal colors (like the black and white zebra), but others are in all sorts of colors that nature never intended (like Amy’s hair).

   So, my wife and son were at the park on a weekday while I was at work; and they spent most of the day in the water park. They wanted to go to Crocodile Cal’s, but it was just … gone. It was there two or three weeks ago when they last went to the water park, but apparently Six Flags completely removed everything, filled in the whole area with dirt, and covered it with grass. Where there had been a big pool (the largest of the three pools meant primarily for children, or rather the children’s pool meant for the largest of the children) there was not what appeared to be an old vacant lot. They plan to build something undisclosed on that plot of land for next year; but unless they need to start construction on the new attraction now, that removal of the existing attraction was extremely abrupt.

   Behind the Hurricane Harbor (water park) first aid station you can see a dirt path around the circumference of the park for vehicles driven by park personnel, as well as a manhole cover and (not in the picture) a path into the woods.

   They’re already advertising Fright Fest, which begins in more than a month and will apparently have a bunch of new stuff. Boy, this summer is flying by.

Love these "hidden area" pics. Always so cool to see other angles of the park rather than just the coasters.
only one other person here cares

And that would be you. You really need to get out here someday.
Exactly! We are hopefully planning a Cedar Point trip next May. We had to cancel a flight for the end of the month but can't get a refund so many use that credit for that trip!
We're hoping for a Cedar Point trip next year, too, since we didn't make it out there this year. Probably won't be May, though; mid-to-late June at the earliest.
How is June usually at CP with crowds if you've been there before? We were thinking May because it might not be as busy but could really do it at any point before August.
I think CP is always hot and crowded. Next time we go, Q wants to go Saturday and Sunday to make sure that she can hit all the rides she wants to hit.
I noticed that on weekdays after around 3pm it gets awesome in there and almost dies out. The one time I was there I kept riding Demon Drop at least 20 times in a row because there were no lines. Millennium Force was only about a 20 min wait as opposed to the 7 hour wait since it was the year it opened.

I've seen it packed even when there was on and off torrential downpour. Usually just the threat of rain decreases the crowds at Six Flags. Q is expecting me to buy her a flash pass if the lines at CP are too long next time we're there.

EDIT: I talked with Q, who went there a lot before I forced her to move out here with me. She said that there's never really a time when it isn't busy. As long as you're in the area, you might want to consider getting two-day passes (she says they're only about $10 more than a single day pass).
Exactly, definitely need a couple days there. Can't believe all the stuff they built since I've last been there.
That's what Q said after our last trip! :)

Make sure you let me know ahead of time when you'll be there, in case we're in Ohio around the same time.
Indeed! I really hope we can all make it there at the same time. Would be the EPIC trip.
OK, so now Q is saying we should go in May (since that's when her birthday and our anniversary is), so...
That would be AWESOME!
