When bunny_hugger and I set out from Cedar Point, it was with the understanding it would be a busy day at the park when we returned. Halloween festivals have become incredibly big profit centers for amusement parks the last few years, and if that weren't enough, it was the long Columbus Day weekend, and a beautiful weekend with warm weather and clear skies. It was busier than that. You know how much busier than that you think it was? It was busier than that. And you know how much you think that was? It was much busier than that.

So despite our worst fears, we got back, and had the chance to see an amusement park running at over fourteen times maximum capacity.
