Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

So Valravn may be partially filled.

Yeah i thought so too. I can't find it right now, but Tony had a periscope where someone asked "Is the track filled with sand?" and he said no. Then someone asked if the supports are filled with sand and he said "I don't know lets see" and he walked over to nearby supports and knocked on them, they were hollow as well.

^ Great picture.

 

By the way they're so damn OCD with that Sky Ride. Look at them lining all the green cars up together, lol.

I'm guessing painting is easier with the colors together.

 

Probably but they painted it last year I believe. It's funny though, they actually run it like that every day. Does anyone know if there's a reason for that or if they just do it for fun? They never did it until a few years ago. lol

 

 

And yes, I'm talking about the Sky Ride again. Shots for everybody!

I feel for these guys working out in the weather today. I can only imagine how cold it is working out by the water.

 

I agree. I mean I know that they are "use" to it. But still... I couldn't do it!! Props to them!

 

That being said. . . Someone has moved on the construction site. Time for a new photo.

 

Actually, they have managed to get the track put together that they will be installing next. Also, there brought another piece of track to the site. It's sitting out in the middle! Can't wait to see this coaster complete. . . Even though I know that's months away.

I've given up on the boat.

Not quite sure if we'll see any steel lifted today, but looks like half of the immelman (in terms of track and supports) are nearing ready to go up.

 

Here is a quick GIF of construction progress so far (based off my progress reports)

 

 

That's brilliant. Thanks for making that gif!

As a former Sky Ride Operator I can confirm, we did it from time to time to pass the time. 16 hours of catch, unload, load and dispatch can be a little mentally disabling.
