Swarms of coaster enthusiasts and muffleheads descended on Cedar Point for the annual CoasterMania event. It featured hours of ERT on several coasters and other rides, a free lunch and complimentary merchandise. I didn’t arrive early enough for morning ERT, so I missed out on the early activities. Wicked Twister was the only coaster down for the day. Top Thrill Dragster was closed during evening ERT due to windy conditions, and replaced with Millennium Force – awesome!

This video features 16 of CP’s 17 coasters (again, Wicked Twister wasn’t open) and some other stuff I encountered during my visit, including another peek behind the construction fences. The fake snowflakes you see floating around in many scenes are cottonwood seeds. And the bugs, they’re muffleheads, and they’ll be followed by mayflies soon enough.
Many thanks to all the great folks at Cedar Point for hosting this event year after year. It’s fun to meet up with fellow enthusiasts and ride some rides! And thanks to all of you for your support – I certainly appreciate it!
