Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Technically 5 left. There is one segment on site, 4 in staging.

 

Judging by the average, and the remaining support configuration, we'll probably see two more segments lifted today (which will span to the next support beam), and the remaining 3 pieces lifted either Wednesday or Thursday (depending on weather).

Let's be honest... anyone stupid enough to jump a fence under an operating inverted coaster isn't smart enough to read the signs posted on the fence, and changing the wording of the signs wouldn't change his decision to jump. And no, I'm not saying that as "I'm smarter or better than him."

 

And what rock solid empirical evidence are you basing that on? We trust people's intelligence enough to have signs that say "CAUTION: WET FLOOR" rather than "CAUTION: WALK SLOW HERE". I could very easily see someone thinking to themselves "Ok, restricted area, well I'll just be quick and no one will catch me." Train of thought might go a little differently if the warning was more explicit.

People ignore wet floor signs and closed/roped off areas all the time. What makes you think different language trumps the ignore function built into people's brains? If someone doesn't see the threat/consequences, a sign won't change that.

If you're dumb enough to jump ANY fence surrounding a Rollercoaster, than you deserve whatever happens to you regardless of what/ how many signs there are.

 

End of discussion.

 

This. Also after looking at that camelback I can't wait to see how much airtime it won't deliver and the complaining that's sure to follow. Lol

^ I've determined that my partner and I are the only ones who have ever gotten floater time on Gatekeepers "airtime" hill. Granted it wasnt mind blowing floater time, but in the front row it is noticeable floater.

 

Nope you're not the only ones. I've gotten some decent floater air about 90% of the time I ride it

I wonder if the go carts will be totally removed this year, or just sit vacant.

Go Carts are really easy to remove, so I'm guessing yes. I remember when WOF removed theirs to build Steelhawk, it only took about a week.

 

 

Try explaining that to Dorney. The go karts have been sitting there since like 2012 when it closed i believe.

Such a sexy layout, but why did they have to choose that color scheme?

 

Word. Valravn has a terrible color scheme. It's just awful. It should have been a nice dark charcoal color, like Krake or Oblivion. I think a dark color scheme fits the menacing characteristics of a dive machine much better.
