Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

p. 2030 - Top Thrill 2 announced!

Recommended Posts

I'm glad I'm not the only one looking at that picture, completely ignoring Valravn and just admiring Raptor's new paint.

I'm glad I didn't punch a hole in my computer monitor due to the sheer anger I feel right now, knowing my home park totally psyched everyone out, and having to face the cruel and agonizing truth that the only thing us coaster fans here in the greater Toronto area can do is watch CP build/enjoy their coaster, trying to enjoy the positively "meh" flat rides we've received for 2016, while we wait another eternal season for our own steel masterpiece....

 

Wait where was I?... Rant aside, I'm glad I didn't punch a hole clean through my monitor, so I can admire raptor's new paint.

 

Maybe you should move to St. Louis for a little humility.

Isn't that the truth! We would be happy with Behemoth!

It's their business and your anger honestly doesn't mean anything to CF. Most people around the world would love to have CW so feel lucky about it

 

My home park hasn't added any big coaster since 2008!

^Well I am actually excited for CW's new flat rides. I'm not sure what about Skyhawk makes you think "meh," because being able to do multiple inversions in the air at 135 feet sounds sick to me. CW will get their new coaster soon enough.

 

Both Raptor and Valravn are going to look great beside each other, and both will be amazing rides too.

Skyhawk does look amazing... Watching onride POVs of similar rides, I've noticed the motion of the inversions look similar to B&M corkscrews (get a nice "whip" effect over the top).

 

However, that being said, I'm wondering how the capacity will be. With only one rider per seat, either the lines will be long, or cycles will be short.

Everyone is talkimg about Raptors new paint, but what about Top Thrill? The new paint is just looking so beautiful. The white pops out!

 

Is the TTD job still a 2 year project? It seems like they're FLYING by with this great weather! I'm not sure how much they actually have done but based on the pictures it looks like they really have made some awesome progress!

I actually find the new paint of Dragster to be way more of a needed change than Raptor. Don't get me wrong, Raptor needed it too, but wow Dragster is just

 

I absolutely agree. Top Thrill Dragster is a marquee addition, and the new paint really pops, especially the white.

I'm pretty sure Tony said "Two season job" but i'm not sure if that meant the operational season, fall-spring , or fall-winter. Im guessing fall-winter since its moving so fast, but fall/spring makes sense too because 420ft in the air during the northern winter has got to be ridiculously cold.
