Can I Ride all These Rides in One Day?

Tuesday, June 18, 2013 7:58 PM

Hey guys just joined up. I'm sure this has been asked a whole bunch of times before and I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this or not, but just wondering, since we've been thinking about it a lot.

So me and my whole family are going to Cedar Point this Sunday, June 23, and my brother and I want to hit as many ride as possible. This will be our second time going. We are going to try to get there as close to opening time as possible, but that's not for sure, since we're never on time, haha. And our time there will include time to eat, walking from ride to ride, and the rest of the family is not as into riding coasters as much as my brother and I are, so we will probably be riding and doing other stuff/rides, other than the coasters so that will be factored into the time. Anyways we have a list of certain coasters that we want to ride for sure, and I was wondering if you guys think that we will be able to hit them all or not.

So heres our list of coasters that we want to ride for sure, and this is roughly the order that we will probably try to hit them in.


Wicked Twister (maybe)



Iron Dragon

Blue Streak



Millenium Force


Mean Streak (maybe)

I know, I know leaving out some big ones in Maverick and TTD, would love to ride them, but its just that I feel like we might have trouble riding all the other ones, and the lines for those two were ridiculous the last time we went. But if we have time we will definitely try to ride those two. I figured do Gatekeeper first since its in the front, and since its new it would have big lines, so maybe they'll be a little shorter if we get to it early. Not sure about Wicked Twister, since it doesn't seem that exciting, but I could be wrong. Figured that it would make sense to get the ones towards the front of the park done first. We would like to get all the ones from the Blue Streak down, done before lunch, if possible, with Blue Streak last since we have to come pack to the pavilions in the front for lunch that starts at 2:00. Not too sure about after lunch though. The big one for me is the Millennium Force, so would like to save that for towards the end, but don't have to. So that's our "plan" I guess, so let me know what you guys think and if all that makes sense, or should we go about it a different way. Just trying to ride as many rides and have as much fun as possible, haha. Thank for any opinion/thoughts. And sorry for the long post, just wanted to be clear.

I'd move GateKeeper and Raptor to later in the day. By 4 or so, the will be less than half hour. Millennium Force and TTD will be 30-60 minutes all day, dropping to under 30 around 7:00. Maverick will be at least an hour until the evening. Everything else should be well under 30 minutes all day. This is pretty much how the 4 Sundays have been there for me this year.

Ok, thanks guys. I'm open to any opinions. I knew GateKeeper, Raptor, Millennium Force, TTD, and Maverick would be the worst, and that the others would probably be short. TTD and Maverick were crazy last time we were there, also on a Sunday. I'm pretty sure that Maverick got to the 2 hour wait sign, if I remember right, when we were back by it last time, it was a little later in the day. I wish I would have rode Millennium Force last time when I had the chance, the line looked really short.

Wasn't sure about the Raptor, I guess we'll wait if the line is long. I figured the GateKeeper would be good to hit first, if we could get close to the park opening, but maybe not then? Thinking about saving the Millennium Force till later so that sounds like a good idea. So you guys think we'll be able to his most or maybe all of the coasters and still have time for other things as well then?

So how'd your trip go? Just by looking on the webcams it seemed fairly busy but not packed. Hopefully you got on most of what you wanted.
