Cedar Point and Famous Dave's - 6/2/2009

Sarah and I took off today for a quick day trip to Cedar Point.

We arrived at the park before the gates open.  Open they played the national anthem we were through the gates and headed to Millennium Force.  We did 5 laps on Millie in our hour of ERT, including one in the front and one in the rear.  Amazingly enough all five rides were in the blue train.

Once the park was open to the general public we hit Maverick, Skylawk, Gemini, Wicked Twister, Sky Ride, Power Tower, Iron Dragon, Raptor, Blue Steak, Disaster Transport, Space Spiral and Wildcat.  Sarah took a solo trip on MaxAir and I rode Top Thrill Dragster solo.  TTD was running flawlessly all day long.  Magnum, however, was down when we walked past.

At the end of our day we got one final ride on Millennium Force, for a total of six laps.  We left the park around five o'clock.

Famous Dave's

In the middle of our day riding at Cedar Point, Sarah and I left the park and walked the short distance to the marina to eat at Famous Dave's and try their Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que.  This was our first experience at Famous Dave's.

Sarah ordered the Chicken Tenders Combo.  And what a combo it was.  Her meal included a good number of plump chicken tender, of course.  As well as corn-on-the-cob, cole slaw, mashed potatoes and a corn bread muffin.  I didn't thing she would be able to eat it all, but she had quite an appetite from all the coasters (and all the walking).

I had the Georgia Chopped Pork sandwich and fries.  It was the best pork sandwich I have ever had.  I was very surprised by how good the sandwich was.  The fries were good too.

We tried 4 or the 5 sauces (sorry but we were scared of the "Devil Pit") and they were all very good.  The meals filled us up and we were ready for more thrills back in the park.
