No, Dom, you won't be pissed. Cedar Point is *not* "just an oversized
(SF)GAd. I know you've been salivating over LIMS, but you'll have a
great time at CP without them.
And, no - hotel guests do not get ERT - you're paying for a place to
sleep, not joining a club :-) ! However, if you enter the park as
early as they allow you through one of the gates leading from the
hotels (ie, 8:45 - 9:00 am), and head straight for, say, Magnum,
you'll probably luck out and get a couple to several rides in a row
before the official 10 am opening bell. No guarantee, but it usually
works that way. The hordes filtering through the main gate have to
walk toward the back of the park to "catch up" with you, and most are
so mesmerized by Raptor as they enter the park, that they make it
their first stop, pouring into the queues.
The bad news is that you are going during the height of vacation
season; the good news, you'll be spending four *week*days at the park,
so you should get your fill of what CP offers!
