Wind?

Staffing?

Mechanical problem?

To annoy guests?

Someone dumped hot cheese into the motor?

I would definitely be asking for a refund. What a way to ruin a perfectly good day. I can't even begin to tell you the trips that have been ruined for our family by this supposedly "world-class" ride not being open on our visits. It's all my kids dream about the night before our big trips, and then we spend all that money to stay in Hotel Breakers only to arrive at the park to see Sky Ride not open....again??!!!

I had a dream. A dream of my family riding in a magical bucket. Suspended above the midway. Children laughing. Memories being made.

The Amazement Park?

More like the Disappointment Park!

I gotta ask, is there a specific story behind this hot cheese in motor question? That seems a bit specific to me.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Just Coasting's pass is set to ping Tony Clark's phone every time it scans into the park. Tony then personally drops whatever he is doing (or comes into work if he is home on a day off) to personally make sure Just Coasting does not have a perfect park experience.

Today Tony knew JC wanted to ride SkyRide, and he wasn't going to allow him to have the satisfaction of being whole.

I have a feeling the hot cheese will now be another added to the list of running jokes.

Ok. I’m gonna go ahead and blame not enough hot cheese for the park forcing us to make a reservation to visit next month.

Probably a good thing because the weather is looking perfect for the weekend.

Whew! I just checked the live webcam and saw SkyRide standing tall and proud. Also notice the Mac Shack with no hot cheese overflow. Crisis averted, make your reservations.

After two days in a row of Sky Ride and WindSeeker being down for winds all day, it looks like Cedar Point called it quits on those two rides for the season. Next weekend's weather forecast is showing even higher winds, so it makes complete sense from a business perspective. What's interesting is the addition of Wicked Twister and maXair. Wicked Twister is most likely due to staffing. maXair was scheduled to reopen last weekend, but it was down for maintenance both days. I wonder if they're still having mechanical issues with it, if it was cut due to staffing, or a combination of both.
