  1. I guess I could see no new from the ground up rides in between 2016-2020. But I really feel like Mean Streak would get RMC'd maybe in 2017/2018. They know it is now the worst coaster in the park. Even if it does get a decent line, it's only because of how good in looks and there is almost no reriders. It's days are definitely numbered, especially with them showing that they want to improve deteriorating rides instead of removing them.

  2. Tearing Mean Streak completely down would take much longer and cost more than Iron Horsing it. It's not like taking the ride down is free, it can be pretty expensive for a ride as large as Mean Streak. Texas Giant had nearly an Identical layout to Mean streak just slightly shorter length and height wise. If RMC can turn that into this rcdb.com/11662.htm, than they'll be able to make just as good or better of a ride out of Mean Streak.

  3. Sorry but I just don't see CP throwing cash at a remake of Mean Streak, better to tear the thing down and have RMC come in to design and build a completely new coaster in the same location.


    I also don't think CP will be seeing a dive coaster anytime soon, maybe at on of the smaller CF parks but not CP. I think over the next two years CP will continue to remove old buildings and rework the park a bit.

    Ya because a totally marketable, cheap, and world class coaster that will make everyone happy is definitely a bad Idea! Why not just waste money to tear down the crappy ride and then buy all new identical wood to build a not as good coaster! Wahoo! I really hope you where joking there.

    Shiekra would cost about 16.5 today and supposedly CP's dive machine is going to have a smaller track, to accommodate the smaller trains, so I could see it.

    I just don't really. If the leaked plans where right(Highly, Highly doubt there was any truth to them though), it would be the tallest and longest dive coaster. That would bump up the cost a ton, and since it has a barrel roll it would need the new wider restraints. Since it's at Cedar Point they'd want to keep the capacity up and would have the same size trains as the ten across making the wider track necessary.

  4. I hate to crash the party on working with Intamin, but I had a conversation with one of the maintenance workers about Mavericks restraints. He said they're replaced every 2 years as part of the regular maintenance and they just decided to go with the I305 style this time around. So there wasn't any "new" working with Intamin, as he said they were purchasing restraints anyway.


    That does make a lot more since then my Idea. But, if it is a Dive Machine coming in 2016, that'll probably be the last new B&M for a while. The only other rides they don't have from them are a normal sitdown, which I don't feel would fit with the park, and a Flyer, which CF has already said they don't like. They'll have to start buying rides from other companies soon, so I'm just hoping that's Intamin again.

  5. What I meant by random was just, Why now? The complaints aren't a new thing, they've been around pretty much since the ride opened. It's a cheap enough addition that they could have done it easily any year before know. To me it seems like they where in negotiations for another project, possibly a woodie, and intamin brought up Maverick's restraints. The park may have decided to replace those along with a new coaster. As for size, I think it could fit if they kept it compact. Especially if they tore down the employee housing.
