Thread: 2010 DESTRUCTOID NARP/CEDAR POINT TRIP.

  1. #1

    2010 DESTRUCTOID NARP/CEDAR POINT TRIP.

    So here's the deal. Cedar Point is the roller coaster capital of the world, and it just so happens to be about an hour from me on the coast of Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio. I would be able to put a lot of people up (if you brought your own sleeping bags/inflatable bed) and there are a few not bad hotels very near to me. Check out the site and see if you are interested. We have no set date but are shooting for sometime in August. Interested parties include myself, HerosPlayDumb, Gatsby, and Samit Sarkar.

    Something to note is that Cedar Point in August can be extremely busy on weekends, so if at all possible consider weekdays for this. If you have any questions about the park or the surrounding area, put them here or PM me.

    Let's do this.

    Who just Ninja'd who there?
    Yeah I figure everyone can crash here the night before and we can get a decently early start on the day.

    Tickets are about 50 bucks. Food is expensive there but if you plan well and drink water instead of sugar tang you can make it the whole day on like 20-30 bucks. That's really it as far as the park goes.

    This is starting well.

    Whoo, boy, that's a 12 hour drive for me. If it happens during August, I'd love to go, otherwise I'm going to be too busy to be able to justify it.

    August is the month in which it will occur with a 90% certainty.

    I left it open in case there was some freak occurrence in which only say, 5 dtoiders could make it in August, but like 20 would come in September. August is the preferred window though.

    I'm sorry, but if there's any trip the forums have made me want to take, it's to Wildwood, NJ.

    (What I'm really saying is that I'm poor.)

    Understood, Cedar Point is super close to me, so it works. The next real trip I'm shooting for is MAGFEST 2011.

    And where is that sexy naked cat bastard anyway?

    Shit fucking yes you should come to Magfest. Honestly, I liked it way more than PAX. Thats not a slight to PAX or anything, but Magfest really is that fucking great.

    You don't have your PAX East badge yet.

    Yeah, I heard a few people saying that. That's part of why I want to go. I'm sure East '11 and '12 will be much better though, if just for better planning.

    August? Unless it's scheduled opposite Otakon, I can very likely make this one.

    BTW, your avatar is totally metal.

    When is Otakon?

    Thank you.

    Also, you are lacking a PAX East badge as well.

    What the fucking fuck, I don't. Someone needs to change that.

    I'm definitely game for this. It's only a five hour drive or so from here so it's certainly doable. I love cedar point, it's been too long since I've gone there.

    If Dtoiders don't mind me cursing on every rollercoaster (it's my coping mechanism), then I'd be up for going. I've got friends in Cleveland, so I don't think we'd need a place to crash.

    Cedar Point is pretty much equidistant from Cleveland and Toledo. Unless you would be dead set on staying in Cleveland and meeting us at the park I would just say come to Toledo.

    Like I said I can almost guarantee my going. I'll probably end up having one or two with my friends come with me just because it's a long ass drive, ~11hours, to make by myself and as much as I love long drives I'd probably get bored, crash and die, thus ruining the entire NARP.
