  1. “On the banks of the red cedar...” *pauses to brace for the trick track even though it’s been gone for years* “man I’m glad the trick track is gone” Whenever I’m bored in line I always sing the MSU fight song, and I love how the rivalries work out at Cedar Point, in a way there is almost a three way mutual hatred. Also love both of your guys’ takes, and it reminds me I really need to make it out to Carowinds for Fury. Something about Yukon Strikes works more for me then Valravn, but honestly the new restraints are just way too tight (definitely a broken record on this one). I’m a pre
  2. Does anyone know why Corkscrew is closed? It’s been closed all day (at least every time I’ve checked) and when we went of Windseeker it was stuck at the base of the lift. Also the park is pretty dead for any day in July, maybe the tropical system scared everyone off because I’ve never seen it like this on a weekday in July. All rides have had sub 60 minutes wait times with most not running all trains, and Raptor and Rougarou only had one.
  3. I mean even if there are electronic circuits don’t like much influx in voltage and controlling where thousands of volts goes can be iffy at best. (Not that I don’t questions RMC’s engineering especially considering the problems their rides have had though.) Either way hope it opens soon.
  4. Went to Cedar Point yesterday and had a great day! Very short lines, rain held off, everything was open for most of the day and running pretty good ops for so early in the season. I also tried out the Ride Force app from this thread and got some decent result. (From what I've seen the app has potential but isn't flawless yet) anyway starting from the top: I just like how you see the pre-lift airtime hills! (Measured from the on-ride pocket) I got a better sample from my watch but the I accidentally deleted it, the G's are pretty sustained for Maverick. Just thought this graph turned o
  5. Two years ago I downloaded this app called sensor play because it can measure G's as well and one issue is its a pain to define G's based on which direction the phone is facing, which produced some weird results. Its entirely possibly he figured out a good way to keep track of this and if that's the case it should be pretty accurate. I'm going to CP tomorrow and I'll analyze the app myself and see if I notice anything that hints at it's accuracy. EDIT: As long as your phone or watch doesn't jostle too much it should actually be pretty accurate. It sounds like it calibrates based on the assum
  6. I've spent quite a large amount of time analyzing the park and I can say without a doubt the building is still there, you can see a slight change in tone in the green color from the angle of the roof changing, as well as if you look close enough you can see the fences and pillars that make the front deck. The moss on top is just very vibrant and thick this year I suppose. Btw in case anyone is wondering why I knew this, that building was one of the first I made for my recreation of Cedar Point in Planet Coaster over here.
  7. At first I found it far too massive to take on but by slowing working on little bits at a time it's slowly seeming very doable, just tedious. And thanks! Also I just took this screenshot from Maverick's WIP station during golden hour, and its bringing me back to my favorite scene from the point. There is still detail to be added but this is 100% my favorite view from the point Unfortunately you can't edit the background to be water and in order to fit the top half of the park I couldn't line up the cardinal directions, but it is close enough.
  8. Thanks! I also have a small update, I've gotten a break in my busy college life to put some work in. Recently I finished the lift and airtime hill custom supports for Millennium Force, as well as put more work into the unload station and queue. This required a small re-profile from before the final airtime hill to the end of the final over bank. This also made me notice the coaster's were in the wrong place, so I saved everything and have begun realigning them. Since then I started working on Rougarou and Maverick's stations. Here are some screenshots: Notice the wide bottom, and ge
  9. Now I've been working on this project for a little under a year (at the time of posting), and have wanted to start a thread about it but have never gotten around to it. First i'll start with a little backstory: I've been wanting to recreate Cedar Point (and really any park) for years but lacked the skills and time, after playing with Planet Coaster for a while and becoming comfortable with the controls and building I started making rides I knew very well (Shivering Timbers lol), and decided I didn't need to work on this all at one time. Thus I started this daunting task by making -nearl
  10. I've never wanted a rumor to be false to this extent before. Having had years and years of absolutely amazing trips to SWO and only having fairly lack luster trips to SF parks (Although I am used to CF if that helps), I would hate to see this happen. If it does I wouldn't want to be an alarmist as I would hope they would keep enough SW and BG staff around to keep the park's experience the same, I feel SF would make more poor decisions in the long run about the animals, and could harm the animals getting even better habitats than what Blackfish has already ruined (What ever happened to the larg
  11. Didn’t CF go flat ride shopping in Europe? Maybe they’re bringing an old flat back that they found there. I’ve never been to KI, but I feel like that could be the be something.
  12. Oh my what a ride! I really think the layout is pretty good but tbh I think the MCBR won’t be too functional, I think the drop after will be fun, but it will only mildly increase capacity. Love the first half of the layout though! I can’t remember if I heard it might have a vertical loop or if I dreamt it, but I swear I’ve thought about it for this ride before! Seems sweet and the layout looks a lot better than Valravn. I will say that after riding SheiKra I wish Valravn and Yukon Striker would have the old restraints, but I’ll love the ride none the less. Plus I think enthusiasts focus t
  13. This is a next day post, I was there yesterday the 25th, and had an amazing day. The whole phone thing really isn’t too bad, although we did have FP+. I would like to see Cedar Point come with a better tactic in the off season, but I get why they’re doing it, especially after marathoning SV and understanding just how insane the airtime is. Anyway I feel like one reason they don’t have a better system in place at this time is due to time and this being a problem they didn’t foresee. I definitely could see them doing something better during an offseason when they actually have time to change stu
  14. Well I guess my favorite ride at CP is back to Maverick after these last few pages. That sign a couple posts above just adds insult to injury, but Maverick still has the bins and it’s gaining some major respect in my books. I hope Cedar Point gets enough negative criticism to change this in a more creative way by next year, before becoming a Univerisal type phone communist
  15. I’m late to the whole fluffy bunny goo thing (I can never remember 100% what the filter is), but I don’t think it would be too bad to have them free for the time your in line/riding it. I thought that’s how it was at USO and I felt it was easy and nice. Not really complaining about the price, but I consider Universial to be a tier above Cedar Point when it comes to customer satisfaction, and I don’t think it would be a bad idea for Cedar Point to follow. On another note I couldn’t imagine waiting opening day without my phone. Or the four hours I waited the first time for Top Thrill. I hope
