A day at Cedar Point

Didn't do much at all last night, after checking in i watched a couple of things on TV and had an early night. Woke around 8am, Jet lag seems to have gone more or less now, showered and headed down to the local post office to put a package in the post. Drove past a couple of strange places and even saw a car at the lights pumping his hydraulics up and down on the car, made me smile.
No idea what goes on in here!                  Weird  animal centre                          Pimpin car!

Caught up with my emails and stuff, the “No-Tell” Motel (thanks for that Franz!) I'm staying at has Wi-Fi but it only works if you go sit round the pool area!! I sat next to the pool and realised the humidity had dropped a lot from how it was yesterday and the temperature was a lower than it was, it said 65 in the car.
I then headed out for Cedar Point, its about 3 miles down the road from my “no-tell”  arrived around 11:30 and parked up in the lot, There were still a lot of people there even though it was out of season! They park didn't open till 12 so i stood around and waited for the gates to open. As soon as they did i headed for the Top Thrill Dragster ride, probably the bets one in the park! Everyone had the same idea and by the time i got there the wait was about 90 minutes! no where near the 4 hours I'd once lined up one summer though!!

After that i lined up for 5 of the other coasters and the wait time was about 30 minutes for each one! i then went back and lined up another hour for the Dragster ride again! Its 7pm here and I'm back at the hotel for an hour then driving back to the park to go on the same rides but in the dark!

My favourite one in the park (Meanstreak)  was closed for the reason, looked like they were replacing some wood beams on it.

The whole place was all done out for Halloween,i forgot how much its celebrated in the USA, in the UK its a very small affair and virtually no kids go out and dress up, we didn't have a single trick or treater last year!
