How many days did it take you to film it?
With all those cool shots, it must have taken you a couple days to film it.

Wait, why didn't you film Gatekeeper??.... jk, nice video!! Keep them coming! haha

It took two days worth of filming to get all the shots. I wanted to film a third day to include Gatekeeper but unfortunately it didn't happen.

^I do not think I would want to make a video because it would cut down on my time to enjoy the park.

^I have no idea what you're talking about here, but I presume that it's the conversion of Mantis, a stand-up coaster, into a floorless, sit-down coaster. To my knowledge, this is the first time this has been attempted.

^ The only possible thing I can think of that they may be referring to is Vampire's conversion from the Arrow suspended trains to Vekoma's floorless trains, but still that is different from a stand-up to floorless conversion and I wouldn't really have counted it as the UK's "floorless coaster" either since then we'd be counting all the inverted coasters.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

The "Good Time Theater" is closing for "future expansion":

https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog-article/online-fun/The-Curtain-Closes

We’ve just announced that over the winter months, we’ll be removing the Good Time Theatre from the park. We can’t tell you all the details, but we’ll need that space for future expansion. Originally opened in 1975 as the Cedar Point Cinema featuring IMAX movies, it was converted into The Good Time Theatre in 2002 with the debut of “Snoopy Rocks! On Ice.”

That's potentially huge news... the removal of that building frees up an expansion area about the size of Mantis if you assume they'll either build over or remove the Turnpike cars (very likely since they have 2 other car rides) and you factor in (maybe) Wildcat's now mostly empty pad. All of these things are right next to each other.
