The Bump Baby Registry
Now is the perfect time to start your Baby Registry!START A REGISTRY
I bought my tickets for opening day at Cedar Point! Seriously cannot wait to ride Gatekeeper. I'm not sure if you guys have seen this thing so here it is...
Only 10 more days!
Edit: This is a better picture than the last one.
Re: Cedar Point 10 Day Countdown
Nice! I love Cedar Point. I haven't been there in years though.
Is your wife just going to watch you go on all the rides?
My wife agreed to not go with me. Sitting on benches all day watching me riding coasters surprisingly does not appeal to her. We are planning on a camping trip sometime in June so hopefully that will make up for my coaster indiscretions.
Trying to figure out a way to get there this year. Will have to try finding a baby sitter for our 2 month old.
Jealous! Saw the computer rendering video from the front seat and it looks freaking amazing (Gatekeeper). I haven't managed to make my way up there since Maverick first opened. The 5 hour one way trip, the money, and the fact that my wife can't ride coasters due to a previous back injury really hampers my ability to go.
I live closer to Kings Island, but the have 2, maybe 3 rides that Cedar Point doesn't match, but Cedar Point outdoes all the rest of their coasters and then some. I have hope now that Cedar Point owns Kings Island though.
They demolished Son of Beast last year and they are planning on adding a large coaster in it's place for next season. Current rumors state either a 200+ ft tall wing coaster (like Gatekeeper just larger) or a 300+ ft tall Giga Coaster like Leviathan at Canada's Wonderland.
I went on SoB before and after they removed the loop. Between that and Mean Streak at Cedar Point...roughest coasters I've ever been on. My father in law actually slipped a disc on Mean Streak.
You would like Diamondback a lot. Very fast and very smooth. It was a great addition for KI and I'm hoping whatever they're planning on next year is not just a clone of Gatekeeper or Leviathan. The one downfall with Cedar Fair is that they love to build a ride and produce similar copies for all their parks, kind of like Six Flags.
