Welcome long time lurker!  Laugh

You should have rode Wicked within the first 2 years. It was awesome...smooth as glass. The line also usually extended east, around the corner toward Dragon. Sadly, those days seem to be gone.

Wicked was never "Millennium Force Smooth," thanks to ZIERER/Stengel and their absolutely abhorrent track segment joints. Really difficult to comprehend that Wicked's track segments were fabricated on the same machinery, in the same factory, and by the same company as Millennium Force's track segments. It's completely ridiculous that ZIERER/Stengel didn't fix those problems in the design and engineering of Impulse at Knoebel's.

Oh yeah that's for sure but Cedar Point is absolutely in a whole different playing field than Lagoon.  Laugh

You are absolutely right! Cedar Point may have Cedar Downs, MaXair, SkyHawk, Millennium Force, Raptor, Gemini, Magnum, and Troika, Troika, Troika, but they most certainly don't have anything in the ball park like Cannibal or Fire Dragon. I really missed Fire Dragon when I was working at the Point.

All cedar fair parks and six flags parks are different from lagoon. It is hard to compare them. Really, the only parks out there that are like lagoon are non corporate parks.
I miss classic, original  funnel cakes.

Lagoon is bigger by about 100 acres.

You should go and judge for yourself. Knotts is open year round.

Yes, Shane should! A Knott's Season Pass is only like $99.00. Back in 1995, I would say Knott's and Lagoon felt very similar, and were similar in size as well. Since the removal of Whacky Soap Box Racers it does not feel very similar at all, and a Visit during Haunt makes the differences more stark in contrast.
