Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

With that being said what other park in the world has a Strata, Giga and Hyper Coaster as well as four B&M's in their coaster portfolio? I will be at the point riding this and their other world class rides for sure.

 

I'll also point out that the strata, giga, hyper, and four B&M's make up less than half of the lineup

Just kinda realized realized something with Valravn's location:

 

Think the back of the park will be deserted till after lunch now? You have 3 coasters that are very popular with the GP right inside the entrance... It'll probably take 2-3 hours to get all 3 done if you arrive at normal opening w/o Fast Lane... That should really keep people stacked at the front of the park...

 

Also, think the cat will be let out of the bag n regard to using the Marina Gate for early entry? It'll be right in front of Valravn, so it'll be more visible...

This park is ridiculous. I'd travel 2000 miles just to ride the Intamin and B&M goodies at the park. Add in the rest, and you have a high capacity juggernaut.

The biggest testament to Cedar Point's lineup is that people don't even mention Magnum, a Hypercoaster that's really, really good. This is the only park anywhere with an extra Hypercoaster nobody remembers is there.

Except me! I love Magnum, 3rd fave in the park after Maverick and Millennium. Magnum RULES!

I seriously laughed out loud when I read this.

I actually have new found love for Magnum. We rode it this season, after we "learned" how to ride it where we don't get brutally injured, I really enjoy it. It's one of my favorite coasters in the park.

Valravn will just be another reliable Cedar Point coaster. What is lost with this coaster is that unlike most Cedar Point coasters this coaster is not something special for it's time. If this was 2001-3 this would be a great addition but in 2015 it feels like just another B&M.

1998-   Oblivion [Alton Towers]
2000-   Diving Machine G5 [Janfusun Fancyworld]
*2005-  SheiKra [Busch Gardens Tampa]
*2007-  Griffon [Busch Gardens Williamsburg]
2008-   Dive Coaster [Chimelong Paradise]
2009-   Diving Coaster [Happy Valley]
2011-   Krake [Heide Park Resort]
2015-   Oblivion - The Black Hole [Gardaland]
2015-   Baron 1898 [Efteling]
*2016-  Valravn [Cedar Point]

Notice how there are only THREE of these in the US? This is still a pretty exclusive club to be in.

While I obviously haven't ridden it, I love Valravn. I think it's a great-looking Dive Coaster. Nice flow, solid elements, good colors, good capacity, and solid coaster overall.

 

However, I feel this coaster would have fit much better at a few other Cedar Fair parks before Cedar Point. But there's a reason for everything.

I just had to do some "cleaning up" in this thread.

 

Cut out this pointless bickering--now.

 

I now return you to the CP thread, which is already in progress.

 

Isn't it great that Cedar Point has such a wide variety of coasters to please a large number of people?

I wouldn't say Intimidator is forgotten about. They have 3 main rides, F325, I232, and Afterburn, that's it in my opinion. It may seem like Intimidator is an after thought this year, but that's what happens when you open up a giga.

I honestly forgot about it until I drove up...and then after waiting an hour for it I was really wishing I never remembered it. At least Behemoth is really good (and better than Leviathan IMO).

 

Valravn does look huge against the shore like that. Looking forward to more pictures!

I agree about Intimadator, not a fan of it and my least favorite B&M hyper. I'll take Magnum over it any day.

I couldn't believe how boring Intimidator was, I even tried multiple seats and it was lame all over the train. Give me Apollo's Chariot, Nitro, Diamondback, Goliath etc;

 

It was by far the smoothest B&M hyper though
