For those of you who have never been, this is a great trip! Of course, last year Nick and I got engaged on Top Thrill Dragster so that made it extra fun.
HalloWeekends runs Friday nights, Saturdays & Sundays during the spooky season. Come see crazy characters, a family-friendly parade and all the scares and frights you've come to expect from the "Best Amusement Park in the World!"
The park opens on Saturday at 11:00 and stays open until Midnight. We are staying at Breakers: http://www.cedarpoint.com/public/park/resorts/hotels/hotel_breakers.cfm to get a discounted rate on park tickets ($34 versus $57 or $47 online advance purchase) and one hour early entry into the park. It is $257 for a standard room with 2 double beds, including taxes. Please collaborate with others in the discussion area if you wish to split a room.
If you don't want to stay, feel free to carpool in the morning. Also discuss that here. You should leave Ann Arbor by 8:30am. There may be a long wait to get into the park if you are not there early. Also parking is about $10 per car so carpooling is a good idea!
We'll plan to meet at Coaster's Drive-In (right near Top Thrill Dragster) at 1pm.
