Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Hey screaminkid2005

From what I remember they don't say passes together, so you would have to get fastlane+ and Fright line separate. I would wait to get Fastlane till you get to the park they change the price of fastlane. I was at the park one day they had it at $85 the next it was at $90 so kind of depends how busy it is. Also the park is not as busy Sundays since the Hunted stuff is not open. Hope you enjoy your trip.

The park is not open on the 9th so the only people that will be at the park will be media.

Also who cars if they coaster count is a day off.

More stuff continues to arrive

 

Someone on Instagram thinks the Dive Machine track is just "a scheme" and they're actually going to build a flying coaster or a 600 foot Poler Coaster.

 

That's quite the expensive scheme to keep a few dozen enthusiasts entertained.

CP will supposedly destroy the dive machine track in a "grand public display" and the 600 foot poler coaster will rise from the ground.

 

It seems like the Flying Coaster and Poler Coaster are like tiger shark embryos, fighting to the death until only one roller coaster is built.

That would be one epic battle!! I am sure this fight would be even better than Mayweather vs. Pacquiao! I think the Flying Coaster will win the contest by a unanimous decision

The announcement is September 9 at 9am.

(Credit to Robb in the CF dev. thread)

 

Edit: And my bet is they absolutely are not changing the name. It was a stupid move by a guest that had an unfortunate result and the hype of the announcement will cover the perceived "issues" with the name.

My take--if Kings Island can use the Banhee name, Cedar Point can use Valravn.

But Cedar Point couldn't use Banshee...

This is what I've been saying!!! There (to my knowledge) have been no issues with the "Banshee" name at Kings Island. . . So I see no issues coming from the name Valravn at Cedar Point.

 

But Cedar Point couldn't use Banshee...

 

That was YEARS ago.... Times have changed.

And I bet it was a great way to create buzz in the media back in the day...

 

I hope Cedar Point sticks to the Valravn name/theme. Otherwise it would be the park in the world with the most last-minute name changes...

Which ride was supposed to be named Banshee?

 

Mantis.

 

On September 8, 1995, Cedar Point announced plans to build a new roller coaster, which would open as the tallest, fastest, and longest stand-up roller coaster in the world. The ride was to be named Banshee after the mythical wailing ghost in Irish folklore. In the days following the announcement, there was some negative reaction from the public regarding the term Banshee, which in the dictionary is described as a female spirit that warns of an impending family death. On November 14, 1995, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company filed a trademark for the name Mantis, which later became the ride's official name. As a result of the name change, its logo was also changed to a resemble a mantis.[5] The discarded name would later be reused for Banshee at Kings Island which opened in 2014.

I read the old Sandusky Register memo earlier, one thing that stuck out to me was that it said it would have four inversions.

 

The leaked layout (if it is legit) only has three, which makes me wonder if another design was originally considered or the camel back was originally supposed to be a zero g roll or something.

 

If so, im glad they went with the air time (if it travels through the hill fast enough)

 

A loop wouldn't have been bad either, im also glad it looks like there will be no splashdown.

 

This ride is going to kick serious @$$. It is really going to look good in the park. That immelman is going to tower over the midway!

Maybe the Sandusky Register is not 100% correct??

Maybe the "leaked" layout... Is not the real layout??

Just because I am curious... Why would you want there to NOT be a splashdown?? The splashdowns are unique, and make the coaster look even more beautiful. Just think of how beautiful Diamondback looks when going through it's splashdown.

 

This ride is going to kick serious @$$.

 

This I do agree with!!! I'm glad to finally see people coming around and accepting the fact that Dive Machines do not suck, and they are not bad coasters!! I think this is going to be a great fit for the park!!

Yes, I am fully aware the Sandusky Register could be wrong. (Even though im pretty sure the memo for Gatekeeper was really, really accurate)

I am also aware the leak could be false (why i put "if it is legit"). I was just bringing up something cool that is totally possible and because im a nerd and its just speculation.

 

The reason i am glad there is no splashdown, is because without one it leaves more room for a more exciting element that meets my personal preference. Don't get me wrong i like splashdowns, they are great for theming and look very visually appealing. I rode SheiKra and i thought it was cool, however i wish they gave you a little splash like a log flume instead of you not being able to see the splash and it just slowing the train down. (I want to get a little wet!! Yes, i know alot of people don't wan't to get wet and when they do they make the decision to ride a water ride or go to Soak City)

 

Look at Valravn's leaked layout, imagine a splash down in the place of that camelback. A splash down is a piece of straight track with a body of water, the only part of the train that hits the water is the scoops on the train which work as slight brakes. Would you rather have a camel back with airtime or a piece of straight track that probably costs more? (Ditch, water, scoops, drains, upkeep of water, etc.)

 

I do like the splashdown on Diamondback though, because there is a lot to the ride before it and it looks great in that area! However, dive machines are short so i would rather have an exciting element than a piece of straight track unless you are already planning on spending top dollar on theming. This is just based off my personal preference, but when i rode SheiKra the splashdown did nothing for me but the rest of the ride was still enough to break into my top ten steel coasters.

 

Yes, Dive coasters are kick @$$ based off my experience of only one of them. I feel like alot of people that have been complaining about them have never ridden one so they don't comprehend how such a short coaster could be that fun, but it is VERY fun.

 

Camelback with airtime >>> splashdown

To the person asking about halloweekends... the secret is to go on Sunday. You don't get scare zones because the park isn't open late, but you have no lines for rides OR houses/mazes! They do not close the park down and its just like a regular day at the park. Not sure what black out dates you speak of. Any day ticket or season pass gets you the Halloween stuff. Unless something has changed this year?

^^Thats all great in theory... However, being a new school B&M (and a dive coaster at that), airtime will be minimal/non-existant
Gosh i hope not! I was really dissapointed with the camelback on Gatekeeper (i would rather there be a loop, i really enjoyed the one on Wild Eagle!) It sounds totally realistic though, but even if there is no airtime i think i would still rather prefer a camelback to a splashdown even though it is not as visually appealing.
