Judging by the response it doesn't appear to be an event at all :P

I've suggested the dates above, so I'm in.

I'd really like to make it, especially if this turns into a real thing with a number of confirmed people.

I call shotgun! Looks very cool. I may actually go next summer. Personally I have gotten very bored of roller coasters they don't give me the same thrill as they used to and waiting in line is basically the deal breaker for me.This new coaster looks intriguing.   I don't fully understand what it is though.

Cedar Point TR.
-Cost of ticket with fast lane: $76. Average cost per coaster ride: $7.60.
-Park hours were 10-10, we arrived 10:30am, departed 8pm. We gave away our FL bracelets before we left to a very happy family.
-We picked up fresh jalapeno and garlic bagels on the way there to eat for the day.

-We did a couple water rides and went to an indoor show to cool off in the AC, we left before the nighttime show.

Coasters:
-Corkscrew: 1 ride, no line+7 minutes for front car.  5/10 stars, cool for how close you get to folks on the ground underneath you.

-Raptor: 1 ride, 3 minute line+7 minutes for front car. 6/10 stars.  I used to enjoy this more, no rush anymore though.

-Top thrill dragster: 4 rides, 13-17 minute line. Waited one time for front car-13 minutes.   8.5/10 stars. Personally I think the ideal car for TTD is the 2nd car. Definitely an awesome rush.

-Maverick: 1 ride, 30 minute line+7 minutes for front car. 8.5/10 stars.  An absolutely awesome ride, though too bumpy to ride again.

-Millennium force: 3 rides, 17-22 minute line+ waited 20-26 minutes for front car each time. 9.75/10 stars.  Best coaster in the world for a reason, smoooth with the awesome 300 foot first hill with a killer view and the 3 points of airtime/zero g forces that will bring a ridiculous smile to anyone.  Definitely worth the long wait for the front car on this coaster.

Didn't venture onto Mantis (the standing roller coaster), Magnum, or onto anything wooden.

I did a couple searches didn't find anyone that currently ranks the millennium force number 1 in the world. This has some interesting facts though. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_roller_coaster_rankings makes me want to go to Abu dhabi

Eta- I've never heard if this company before but at a glance it seems a company called intamin makes basically all the best roller coasters in existence.

See page 38, smoked the competition.
5 of the top 21 steel coasters in the world are in Cedar Point. 3 of those 5 are Intamin creations.

Why no wooden coasters? Not as interesting or safety factor
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.
