Weekend fun

This past weekend, I went to Cedar Point with Mike and his family (his mom, dad, sister, and her boyfriend, Tyler). It was the first time I'd ever been, and I loved it!!!

We left Mike's house around 11:20 on Friday morning and got to our hotel around 4:20. After settling in, we headed over to the amusement park. We got passes that let us in from 5 until close (10). We decided to ride a few rides before getting dinner. First we rode Wicked Twister, then we decided to try riding maXair. They had just assigned us our seat numbers and we were waiting to get on the ride when it broke (people were still on it!!!), so we decided to go get dinner instead. After burgers, we walked around the park for a while looking at the different rides. We rode the Power Tower too. Mike tried his luck at a 3 point basketball game, but we all know those things are rigged!! Our last ride of the night was the Giant Wheel. We decided to get our caricatures done also, and they turned out sooooo cool!!! (I'll post a picture of that later). We planned to hang out to watch the laser show, but it started later than we thought and then it started to rain, so we went back to the hotel and watched the Pistons game (too bad they lost!)

Saturday morning we got up early so we could be back at the park at 9. One nice thing about the hotel we stayed at is that we could get in an hour before the park opened to the general public. The first ride we went to was Top Thrill Dragster. I was so scared to ride this one (read the description and you'll find out why!), but it was soooo worth it! I love it! Then we headed over to Millennium Force. Those two are usually the busiest rides, but we had less than a 15 minute wait for each one...often the wait can be 3 hours. Our longest wait for any ride was 25 minutes. We rode the Iron Dragon and Mantis. Then we decided that we needed to get something to drink, because it was really hot outside. After lunch we headed back to maXair, and actually got to ride it this time!! Because it was so hot, we decided to do the indoor rollercoaster, Diaster Transport. The boys decided to try to imporess us girls and win us stuffed animals so they played a water squirt gun racing game, Mike didn't win, because he was racing Tyler, but Tyler won twice, so Jen and I both got stuffed animals :) The Raptor had been broken the first time we tried to go on it, but when we went back, it was fixed again, so we rode it. That was our last ride of the day, as we were all exhausted. We looked around in the gift shops for a while and sat in the shade while we waited to meet Mike's parents. We left around 4.

On the way home, we stopped at Cabela's to get fudge...Tyler had never been there before, so it was a neat experience for him. We also stopped at Tiffany's for pizza (if you're ever in Dundee for dinner time, I highly recommend this and delicious!!)

I didn't take many pictures, just because it's so hard to take pictures on the rides ;) But Mike's mom took some, so if I get them from her, I will show you

This is Jen in Diaster Transport. If you look carefully, her nails are glowing in the blacklight.

  1. What a fun time. I haven't been to Cedar Point in a long time, but it's always fun!

  2. Great pictures!! Very nice!!!!

    Thanks! LOL

  3. Looks like you had a lot of fun! Mike and Logan are planning on going there again too sometime soon. They have stayed at the hotel before too and like the time when they can get in when no one else is there yet.

    Glad you had good weather and an awesome time!

  4. Wow - you are so much braver than me! I wish I could go on roller coasters, but do a crazy inner ear disorder I do not do well and usually feel like barfing!

    What a cute couple you are! :)

  5. I love the Iron Dragon- It's been years though since I've been there.
    Glad you had a good time- very cute couple by the way!

  6. Sounds like you had a blast! WE just went to Cabelas on our way to Pennsylvania too. Cool. Congrats on the boyfriend and on seeing your friend again.

  7. Is Mike ducking or did you have a sudden growth spurt that I should know about?? Because the last time I saw him, he was a lot taller then you... j/w. :D
