Should we go in May or June?

Cedar Point: Any reason not to go to Cedar Point in May?

We're going to Cedar Point in May or June this year. Our dates are totally flexible at this point - is there any disadvantage to going on May 19? Is it likely that some of the rides won't be operating yet?

I dont think there is any disadvantage goin on may 19. The rides will be refurbished and good in the very beginning of the season so I think that there would be a better chance of them being open than down. Every coaster has down time every once in a while so you never know when they will break down, but i think that you will have a better chance of them being open since its the very beginning of the season and the coasters have been greatly inspected over the off season.

Definitely try to go before Memorial Day. You'll probably still encounter something with downtime (with all those coasters, something's bound to be wrong), but the crowds will be exponentially smaller.

I just emailed a bunch of friends, a couple of which live in that area (I'm in Indy). I have never been to CP and would love to go. I am trying to organize a spring trip as well. We are looking at late April/early May or June. But I know June is going to be a lot busier.
