CP Rides You've Never Ridden

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 1:38 PM

What ride(s) at CP have you never ridden over multiple visits? Why not?

Mine is Blue Streak. My first visit to the park was in 2005 and I've been probably a total of 7 days over a few visits. BS is obviously a classic and I'm kind of ashamed to admit I've never been on it. I think I'd enjoy it and definitely plan to ride in June when I'm there.

I only just rode Gemini for the first time when I was there two years ago, and loved it.

Giant Wheel. It's not for lack of wanting to at all- I would LOVE to- but I always go to the Point by myself and GW doesn't allow single riders. :(

Aside from numerous kiddie rides and the pay-to-ride attractions like SlingShot and Frontier Fling, I've tried everything at least once except for WindSeeker.

Proud to have fathered a second generation coaster enthusiast destined to keep me young at heart and riding coasters with a willing partner into my golden years!

Sing shot- go for it as it's pretty unique.

Ripc... err Fling Thing- don't waste your time, it's a snooze you can do multiple places bigger and better and cheaper....much, much, much cheaper. (And I don't mind blowing money at CP)

Windseeker- at night in windy conditions is outright scary fun

Chaos was the last ride I could fit on but never rode. Same reason I won't get on a Twisted Top Spin or a lot of carny rides... too many axes of spinny/flippy.

Just say no to trims

CCMR, just never gotten around to it.

RMC streak or bust!

Tilt-a-Whirl, only because until this off season I never knew it existed.

In the past, it was Demon Drop. I grew up going to the park (late 90s to present). It took until my first year of working at the park in 2009 to ride that ride. I had an irrational fear of the ride.

Currently, it's Thunder Canyon, Snake River Falls, and Monster. I don't like the water rides because afterwards - you're soaking wet. Monster because my family doesn't like the ride. (I like Monster, however).

A lot of these responses have added to my own list. In addition to Blue Streak, I've never ridden the kiddie rides, most of the flat rides, or any of the water rides either.

Oh, and I've never ridden Valravn, but that's because I wasn't there last year. I'll remedy that in June!

I was "fortunate" to ride Jr Gemini when I was 6, my first trip to the Point back in 1991, but I don't remember riding any of the Kiddie Kingdom rides.

I never rode anything in either Planet or Camp Snoopy, but I always say i'm going to go on the Tilt-a-Whirl but my wife and I never end up doing it. This year is the year!

CP Coaster Top 10: 1. Steel Vengeance (15 rides to date) 2. Top Thrill Dragster (169 launches to date, 4 rollbacks) 3. Raptor 4. Millennium Force 5. Maverick 6. GateKeeper 7. Valravn 8. Rougarou 9. Magnum XL 200 10. Gemini

I can't ride spinning rides due to equilibrium problems in my right ear. And that includes the carousel. Also I haven't ridden Skyhawk or Ocean Motion. If I want the motion of the ocean, I'll take a cruise.

Like others, kiddy rides & upcharge rides are skipped. I also haven't ridden Monster, Witch's Wheel, Himalaya, Wave Swinger, and Ocean Motion because I have those at my "home parks" (SeaBreeze and Darien Lake) so I kinda go for the unique stuff during my limited time at Cedar Point. Also never set foot in Soak City but we will check out CP Shores this summer.

But then again, what do I know?

Witches Wheel. I got in line for it once, then left after I really watched the ride. I don't plan on riding it at any time either. Those Enterprise rides are very sketch, and I'm not sure how the human body can handle it.

Shoot the Rapids and Swan Boats.

Oops! Too late...

Witches Wheel is actually very comfortable to ride. It is very smooth, not being on a track makes it smoother than any coaster. I find it a lot of fun and wouldn't mind if they tripled the cycle length.

I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks,
than in the drink with a boat on the rocks.
