Cedar Point PKMN merch

My family and I took a mini-vacation to Cedar Point (Sandusky, Ohio, USA) and as I haven't seen a post specifically about it yet, I thought I'd update you all on what they do and don't have!
When we first got to the park, I was a bit disappoint because all I saw were these:
Still big, but not THE OMG HUGE POKEMON OF DOOM. They also seemed to be a bit behind on the generation of Pokemon. But then. We went to the arcade. I completely flipped out.

BIG POKEMON IN A BIG CLAW GAME! They had Pikachu, Piplup, Skymin, and Happiny. I think (don't quote me on this) these were the same size as the ones pictured above. Though if you're good with these machines, it would theoretically be cheaper to win one from here, as it costs $3 for one try at this and $2 to play the game above (but you need to win that multiple times to get a Pokemon). There were also smaller Pokemon in normal-sized claw games:
Excuse the huuge photo and my face
These were the second smallest size they had there, about the equivalent of the plushes you see in claw games in grocery stores and whatever. They had Pikachu, Piplup, Buneary, Turtwig, Charmander, Squirtle and Aipom spread throughout three different machines.
$1 for this game.

And I apologize for the lack of photos on the next part x_X My family doesn't understand the importance of this haha, so we didn't stop moving long enough for me to get some pictures.

They also had smaller plush in .50 cent claw games. They looked about 6 inches, maybe? From what I remember, there was Pikachu (of course =P), Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Landmin for certain, and I think Piplup and Turtwig.

And it turns out, They DO have huge Pokemon! Not the Black & White ones, sadly, and they're still not the amazing-larger-than-you Pokemon. These ones looked four feet, maybe? Smaller than me and I'm 5'-something xD Anyways, the only ones of these they had were Pikachu and Piplup. I do wonder if they're gonna end up getting the B&W stuff. You won these from a game where you knock all three bottles down (harder than it looks >_>)

And last but not least, I spotted Pokemon at one of those water-squirter games. I'm guessing these were the smallest of the carnival game prizes (the first picture being medium and the HUEG ones being the large). If you won twice in a row, you got to pick a Pokemon (win one time and you won "a cute, colorful puppy!") They had Meowth and Happiny here. And if you won three times in a row, you could get a larger Pokemon (I think they had the usual Pikachu, Meowth, and Snivy. What happened to the other starters...? D=) With the combined efforts of my dad and I, I won a Meowth =D

He's so derpy and has some loose stitches as you can see, but I plan on re-stuffing him and fixing him up <3 And here's him with my traveling Kandi Stanley psyduck

Cute tag art is cute (And proof that he is indeed from the B&W set of toys) So there you have it! I will reply to any questions and previous comments, etc. later on as I'm about to head out the door again
Also, while I'm on the subject, does anyone have the link to the group buy this comm is gonna do for the Toy Factory plushies? I'd like to keep an eye on it to get my brother a Snivy, since he didn't win one but reallyy wants it. Thanks!
