Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 1989: Wicked Twister's permanent closure announced!

Recommended Posts

And not a single mention of the Quadratic formula... I am ashamed of all of you! How are we supposed to know X without it?! PEMDAS doesn't even have a catchy jingle to help students in middle and high school remember it! We can pinpoint EXACT coordinates of these track pieces as long as we know A B and C. x equals negative b plus or minus the square root of b squared minus four time a plus c, all over two a. Which of course I did some math myself and came up with this rough sketch of the layout based on the two pieces on site so far:

Of course this is a very similar layout to the one coasterbill got when he used PEMDAS and the Pathagorean Theorem, twice. But with the quadratic formula we get a new angle to look at the ride with!

 

Any other formulas we can play with to see even MORE views?! Maybe even a POV?

 

EDIT: CoasterBill, I take you up on your TI-83, and raise you my TI-nspire

All of the signs point to CW. Canada's Wonderland needs a dive machine more than CP does. Cedar Point already has 2 vertical drops. That's too many amazing ride experiences. If it's floorless, they just got Rougarou. They also have GateKeeper, which has seats hanging off the side of the track. Because of the seating, the roller coasters are exactly the same. Stupid...

 

How was my impression?

Calm down, we all know it's going to Canada's Wonderland <<< (Sarcastic Voice)

 

But in all seriousness, it's going to CP. So what if they have vertical drops it's another unique experience of hanging over the edge, and the Immelmann after the drop!

Just a quick thought... With the lift being over 200 feet tall, and there being a possibility of a sligltly longer drop (if there is any kind of tunnel or ditch) - could that that possibly mean that first Immelmann could be taller than 170 feet? That would be around a 50' difference in height if the statistics are correct.

 

I do think ValRavn could have the world's tallest inversion. Depending on how you count a loop, it would have to beat either Gatekeeper (170ft drop/inversion), the Lewa Happy World Mack loop (164ft?), or maybe the 2016 Wanda Hefei coaster that is supposed to have a 55m (180ft) loop.

Self Service Beer coming to Cedar Point.

How is nobody paying attention to this? Screw the roller coaster, this is awesome!

 

I was there a few days ago and it was extremely popular, especially the 40z for $20 deal ...

 

"Park guests can purchase either a $10 or $20 pre-loaded RFID card, pour Bud Light, Budweiser, and Goose Island IPA at $.50 per ounce"

 

Of course folks won't remember how many oz are in a Pint or tall glass at their favorite bar when at CP! Think about how much a 40oz is at the store for Edward 40 hands around Halloween and you may feel sad. Anyways, I swear I saw more than just three beer choices though!

(or they are attempting to sell a larger variety in the near-future)

 

"The station is staffed by two park employees who ... make sure that no guests are being over served and ensure that guests get the perfect pour every time."

^I wouldn't say Goose Island is cheap beer. Someone mentioned that they thought that they saw more offerings too.

 

Wouldn't be surprised to see Great Lakes get in the mix.

 

Edit: To add to that...I doubt CF wants to start selling draft beer for like $4. Then I could see where things might get out of hand. Me? I have no problem with getting a couple of ice cold drafts down at that end of the park.
