Cedar Point HalloWeekends 2012 Trip Report

halloweekends logo

Over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, we packed up our car and headed to Cedar Point to take in their fantastic HalloWeekends for the first time ever! It’s been on our list for a long time, so it was nice to finally have time to visit.

If you’ve never heard of the event, it’s similar to Halloween Haunt at Canada’s Wonderland, with the exception that it’s included with park admission.

Our first night was Friday and the weather flopped back and forth from being a tolerable chilly to pouring rain. It did put a damper on the evening, but we had the chance to walk the park and take in all the fantastic Halloween themeing and decor. We must say it was very impressive! Continue reading

Cedar Point Trip Review

We just got back from our whirlwind tour of Cedar Point and the other fine offerings that Ohio has to offer (Put-In-Bay & Kalahari). We must say, we’re exhausted! We stayed at the amazing Kalahari Resort & Conference Centre. It’s massive, gorgeous and will require its own update. Look for that soon! Check out our thoughts and views from our Cedar Point trip below: Continue reading

Cedar Point Trip

Next week we’re off to visit the super amazing Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. We’re so excited to visit, it’s been five years since we last stepped into the park. Of course, we’ll be taking pictures and video of everything we encounter. We wanted to ask you what you would like us to feature in our trip report and videos.

Cedar Point removes Wildcat coaster

 

Sad news today for WildCat fans: Cedar Point has announced that as a result of expanding its new Celebration Plaza, they will be removing the WildCat roller coaster. Meaning, Six Flags Magic Mountain now will reclaim the title of having the most coasters in the world, with 17.

WildCat was coming to the end of its useful life. With the desired expansion of Celebration Plaza, coupled with the low ridership and increased maintenance costs, Cedar Point has decided to accelerate the removal of the ride. WildCat will be removed from the park prior to Opening Day and the materials will be sent to a recycling facility.
This expansion is one of several initiatives that will beautify the park midways and enhance guests’ experiences. Additional improvements include state-of-the-art lighting packages on Giant Wheel, Millennium Force and Power Tower, a new sound and lighting system along the park’s Main Midway and the re-painting of the Millennium Force and Blue Streak roller coasters.
Cedar Point remains committed to being the roller coaster capital of the world.  New roller coasters, rides and attractions will always be a part of Cedar Point’s future.
