First of all sorry for not posting this earlier.

 

We left at about 7:50 for CP. We stopped at about 11:00 for some Sonics near Dayton which was alright but not as good as the last time I had it. well anyways we arrived at about 12:00 and I was beyond excited. This had been the first time in a year since I had been to CP in a year (I know its lame but I live in Indianapolis and I don't have a license). It didn't seem crowded to me by the way the parking lot looked. We parked in the soak city lot so we could take the more scenic route. We got out and noticed it was a little chillier than we expected so we threw on some extra shirts and headed off to Magnum. It had a small wait but due to wind it closed for about 15 minutes. Once it reopened we only waited 10 minutes. We got on and it was the best ride I've ever had on Magnum. Last time I rode it, it seemed like the airtime was painful but this time it wasn't and the trims were off! I wanted a re-ride but the que started to fill up since it opened.

 

Next we went to ride TTD but it was closed due to the wind. It started testing so we waited in line for about ten minutes before they got a call saying it would be closed so being the type who hopes for the best but unluckily it didn't reopen so we waited for an hour for nothing.

 

We decided to leave line and head to Millie since it was open. We got their and noticed the huge line but since we had only ridden Maggie we decided to wait in it. We were about half way through the line when not iced people looking at something and seeing people standing on the railing. I thought it was just something dumb like they were taking one of millies trains off and putting it on the transfer track (which they did later on) but then I noticed a stretcher go into the que, later they brought someone out but I couldn't tell the extent of his injury. I just thought he probably was sitting on the railing and fell off. Well any ways two hours went by and we were up. Nick and his dad rode second to back while I waited one more train for back which was probably a good choice since they had sleet when they rode and it ended when I got on. It was a pretty nice ride on Millie but not as memorable as my other times on it. It may have been since it was so cold though. When i got off I was going down the exit ramp and somebody tried to spit on me which made me really mad. I hate how disrespectful most of the general public is.

 

After that we made our way to Los Gato's to get some amazing tacos. It was funny the park was so crowded Los Gato's had a huge line. The tacos were pretty good and it was nice watching Maverick go through its layout. We ate fairly quick and looked at Mavericks queue which was outrageous. It was way out of the queue so we we went and looked at Mean Streak's queue which was a 45 minute wait. So we headed to Gemini. It had a 30 minute wait but due to bad weather it was closed. So we waited for 10 minutes but nothing seemed to happen so we left the queue.

 

So we walked around and it started raining. I filmed a little as we walked to Power Tower. It was a 15 minute wait. While we were in line we saw multiple line jumpers but for once a ride op made them get in the back of the line. We got on and had an alright ride on it. Seemed better last year though. Once we got off we noticed Corckscrew reopened so we went to it and waited for 10 minutes. The ride ops seemed a lot more lively then most of the parks ride ops. Overall I had a nice ride on Corckscrew. We sat 6-1.

 

After that we headed to Demon Drop and as we walked we gazed at Raptor hoping it would open. Once we were in line for DD I started taking as many photos and videos as I could since it would be the last time I would see it in Sandusky. My main focus was on it making sure I didn't miss one glimpse of it. We waited 20 minutes for it which seemed pretty long for DD. I had an amazing ride on DD and I will always remember it. I know its just going to Knotts but I have a feeling I won't be able to ride it there.

 

After that we went over to Wicked Twister and it had 20 minute wait. It was pretty fun but it sucked when Nick's Dad announced after Wicked Twister we would leave. I wasn't angry though because I understood it would be a long ride home and it was bitterly cold. We then and hit our last ride of the night chaos which was a disappointment. Then we headed to pagoda Gift Shop and I got a Magnum Shirt and a set of Coasters! Well coasters you lay drinks on. we walked out and I couldn't stop looking at CP!

That last picture of Demondrop is very cool looking! Glad you had a good time despite the bad weather and crowds.... I went Sunday and it was empty... sorry.

 

And those MF "poles" were for trimbrakes.

You forgot to mention riding Chaos after Wicked Twister. Nice photos, I like how most are kinda random and not the average photos. I wish I would of taken more like that.
