Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

My University is offering a trip to Cedar Point October 11th with transportation and an all day drink wristband (total of $35). This is a Sunday. Will the crowds be tolerable? We leave super early so we have the whole day in the park to ride and then do Haunted Houses later on in the day. I assume Sundays are better than Saturdays, but how much so?

Probably not. The next day is Columbus Day and that's their busiest weekend of the year. Saturday would be worse but I'd expect large crowds. If it were me I'd still go though... a busy day at Cedar Point is still better than being basically anywhere else.

That is the smartest thing I have read on these forums in a long time

I would like Griffon's if they had been able to scoot it a few feet forward so it didn't hit the track awkwardly like this

Really? I thought that was kinda cool and added to the uniqueness of the ride, in addition to the sky ride going through the ride! Great example of awesome integration of a coaster into it's surroundings. I understand your point, though Always nice to hear different POVs.

 

I can honestly say that I have never devoted a second of thought to the aesthetics of Griffon's spray "awkwardly" hitting the track . . . but now I find it infuriating and distracting to my enjoyment of the ride.

 

I've never really had an issue with the self wetting Griffon. Personally I thought it was unique considering it made the splash down a little different than SheiKra's. I still wish Cedar Point would have got a splash down on Valravn... But that's just me. But even without the splashdown Valravn is going to be one heck of an amazing ride!!

Is Rougabrew available anywhere in the park? We're staying at the Breakers and will be checking out the Surf Lounge. I'm hoping they have it there or perhaps at the Red Garter.

 

The Trail Tavern on Frontier Trail should have it on bottle.

So when I check in on this thread I'm usually 4-6 pages behind, which is a good thing because there's usually lots of stupid bullshit I don't need to read.

 

Consider yourself lucky then.

 

I think that my brain still hasn't quite recovered from a lot of the posts that have been made since the rumors began circulating about Valravn all the way through the Raptor incident and the official announcement of Valravn. It's possible that mental scars could have been left.

 

At times, I had to hit the back button & pinch myself to make sure that I wasn't trapped inside the Darien Lake thread.

 

 

 

I think CP should buy Darien Lake's old Barracuda Bay slide complex! Who cares if th supports were custom fit and the slides were 20+ years old! It's the DarienLaker way of things! (But seriously... TPR needs a Barracuda Bay filter)

Nah. CP desperately needs a Gerstlauer spinning coaster. 420/4 model of course.

 

Maybe they can fit it inside the Good Time Theater?

A 223 foot dive coaster could also take up the space of Good Time Theater

Excuse me but, I think Cedar really does need a family coaster for the 42"-48" tall crowd, but as a filter for Barracuda Bay, no way!

Okay so stupid question... the park is opening tonight but do we know what rides are actually open? I know Friday nights are always "limited ride availability" during Haunt, but normally they put out a list and I don't see one this year.

 

On Friday nights, the following attractions are NOT open:

 

Antique Cars

Camp Snoopy

Cedar Creek Mine Ride

Cedar Point & Lake Erie Railroad

Corkscrew

Gemini

Giant Wheel

Sky Ride

Super Himalaya

Troika

Witches' Wheel

Good find, I knew it must be lying around somewhere...

 

Anyway wow! Unless I'm imagining things It seems like they expanded their Friday night ride lineup quite a bit. Obviously Rougarou's been added but I feel like a few others have as well (was Mean Streak always open on Fridays?).

 

That being said...

 

Sky Ride

 

...ahem, excuse me? Oh, well screw Halloweekends then. I'm boycotting this entire event.

Honestly the Super Himalaya one is kind of odd... obviously this has to do with staffing but I'm sure that ride only needs one op. They probably figured it's basically the same thing as Matterhorn though and to be fair they're kind of right.

 

Then again... who really cares.

JRice92 - Just wanted to say that we saw you at MF this summer, and you were doing an amazing job. You really do seem like you LOVE your job! You seemed to keep everyone at MF super pumped to ride the ride!

 

Also... Am I the only one who noticed the split in the cat walk that shows room for the water scoops on the back of the trains? Obviously I know there will be no water splash on this coaster. . . but it makes me wonder why they rendered the coaster with the space for the water scoops in the catwalks. Those of you who are familiar with Dive Machines will know what I am talking about in the image below...
