Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 2017: Top Thrill Dragster RETIRED!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

I hope clik-fil-a gets replaced with a Popeyes. Chicken tastes so much better without a side of hate.

 

The only thing I like to speculate about more than amusement rides is chicken. Cedar Fair hasn't worked with Popeyes in the past, but I want to dismiss rumors that Six Flags has an exclusive 2 Popeyes deal in the pipelines.

 

#Popeyes2016

 

Edit: Those Cajun Fries though!

Popeyes FTW!! I had Chik-Fila once and didnt think it was all that, definitely overhyped.

I can see them putting in the Chicken Shack restaurants that they have put in at other Cedar Fair parks like KI and Carowinds.

I'm all for that because the Chicken Shack chicken is surprisingly really really good.

 

Yes, they're great! The Chicken Shack at Canada's Wonderland offers a wide range of wraps, burgers, and other things using chicken! I had also experienced the one at Kings Island back in July of 2014. It was good as well because they offer the same or similar products!

I am actually glad Chikfils is leaving, just my thoughts on chikfila leaving CP. When I go to a park, I go to immerse myself in a wonderful, beautiful fantasy world. I dont want to be reminded of all the crap, politics , personal issues, and bigotry out there in the rest of the world. I go to a park to escape reality, if only for the day. Seeing chiks always was a bit of a downer, as it took me out of the fantasy land that the parks strive to be. Not that it ruined my day by any means, it just put a sobering moment ( and really, just a minute) an otherwise Debbie Downer moment on the "high " of the day. just my 2 cents.

All that blabbing about Chic-Fil-A is quite ridiculous in here. This is a theme park forum about one of the best parks in the world. If you're honestly offended because an organization doesn't support what you support, then you're part of the problem, not the solution. If you hate Chic-Fil-A but support say a LGBT community hating on churches and you don't have a problem with at as well; then you have no space to call people or organizations names. Simple as that, now back to Valravn...

It's not "ridiculous." It's a forum. This is where people come to diSeuss things. The chick-fil-a topic just happens to be what has been being discussed lately.

 

I'm not offended because an organization doesn't support what I support. I also am not an LGBT person who hates churches. I am a firm believer and supporter of the entire NOH8 campaign, and the belief which no one should be hated for anything... and that is what frustrates me with chick-fil-a. I'm not hating on them, or their relguon, so why is it acceptable for them to hate on me and my beliefs??

 

Now... I'might done with the chick-fil-a topic. It's starting to get frustratingly annoying.

 

Any sign of the boat?!

^I agree the Cedar Point is one of the best parks out there. I never said any bad words about the company that's leaving, just that it took away from the escape / fantasy / fun world that the park puts its guests in, if only for a moment. You proved my point that they are a bit decisive ,good or bad, depending on which side of the fence one may be on. and that's fine. Ok, enough rant. Lets get back to how great the new coaster is going to be. (and also, any updates today on the boat?)

You have actually gone into a Chick-fil-a and had them "hate-on" you, instead of wait-on you? Why do you feel the need to badmouth the whole company because the CEO is a fundamentalist Christian? The company employees LGBT persons, so where are you seeing this hate? Disagreement in worldview is not hate.

 

And I would love another REAL sit-down restaurant inside CP. I would rather pay extra for a server to bring me food than to fight with a crowd over a dirty table.

There's a difference between not supporting the same thing as someone else and actively trying to ensure that someone lives a life that is disadvantaged and not guaranteed equal protections under the law. So Chick-Fil-A is the only problem here, unless you're trying to count your problem of attempting to get this thread "back to Valravn" to avoid a subject that might make you uncomfortable, which didn't even work.

 

I've never been a fan of Chick-Fil-A myself, but I can't say that I never popped in for the occasional milkshake on a hot day especially. I'd love to see the building become something like Midway Market, but more of a western style cuisine.

I was not impressed with the food from Chick-fil-A at all. It was basically a bun with a piece of chicken on it...nothing special. I would like to see it replaced with something unique to the park (aka..skyline chili, graiters, larossas..ect). Something that the company is familiar with, but lacking at cedarpoint.

 

The same location used to be a park run pizza place before Chick-fil-A took over.

Check out the cam

 

EDIT: Tony was just live on Periscope, he said this is the last piece the giant crane will be used for. I asked him in the chat if this was one of many designs considered in the design process. This is obvious to some but he talked about the back and forth talks with B&M deciding what fit best.

 

One more thing, the last piece on the lift hill is currently being placed and I must say the colors from Tony's view looked fantastic!!
