Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I'm flying up next weekend. I know it'll be nuts on Saturday, but I'm wondering what is the history of how the crowds are when Ohio State plays? They're at home next weekend at 7 pm.

Heading there on that weekend too (16th to 18th), I hope the lines aren't too bad, if they are gonna be REALLY bad we will get fast passes.

Heading on the early morning on saturday and sunday and that usually got us on maverick walk on every morning

Having fun at the point right now, but I gotta say that they need to work on the food service. The lines for food or drink are horrendous and not moving. 35 min to get a drink.

How are the lines today? Im going next saturday so whatever you are getting should be less lines on Saturday because of the holiday this weekend.

Took a few pictures from this weekend. The park was packed, and we did not really ride much. Construction seems to coming along on valravin, and I was able to get a few pictures of it.

 

 

Onto the pictures......

A few of the rides were down due to wind on Friday night

It pays to get to the park early on a saturday before the crowds.

Now lets take a look at the construction

Lots of footers. I would give it another month and vertical construction may start.

The sun was not helping me take very good pictures, but a lot more track and supports have shown up since I was there 2 weeks ago.

-Valravn*

 

-That is what almost all CP foundations look like. The majority of that will be covered with grass.

 

-That is the holding brake for the first drop.

 

Thanks for sharing.

^ Seemed like that yesterday too except Gate Keeper. It's the end of the season. Maverick and Millienum Force were still great. TTD was down for winds the majority of the day, ran about 30 mins, and went down for maintenance. You won't hear this often but I was thankful for Mean Streak's trims on the first drop. That ride has so much potential and I hope something is being planned to improve it.

I get what you're saying but I disagree. Slowing down any thing is going to decrease the intensity along with frequency. If you were to drive over a speed bump at 5 mph verses 25 mph, which is going to be more intense?

I'd feel them more at 25 because of the intensity. They probably aren't noticeable at 5. Mean Streak's trims are all about the structure and reducing track wear, but they also saved my back at the bottom of the first drop lol. It didn't seem as bad during my last visit in '13. It definitely needs track work. It may be next after Ghost Rider.
