Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

OK these are freaking cool. https://cedarpointonlineshop.com/

Made it out to Cedar Point this past weekend, October 17th-18th with my mom and dad to visit my sister working at the park. My sister works at Dorney, but since they closed early, a bunch of full time

Cedar Point to add a sports complex near the park in 2017!

Cedar Point adding sports park complex

Anne Erickson, Lansing State Journal 9:16 a.m. EDT April 5, 2016

 

Cedar Point is about to get sporty. The Sandusky, Ohio-based amusement park will begin construction on its new Cedar Point Sports Center this Friday.

 

Phase one of the development project, located on outside the park on Cleveland Road in Sandusky, will include an outdoor sporting facility called Sports Force Parks bringing together nine multi-purpose, synthetic turf fields, four NCAA regulation baseball fields, a championship baseball and softball stadium, eight NCAA regulation soccer and lacrosse fields, sport-specific training areas and an ADA-accessible community-use field.

 

The Cedar Point Sports Center, managed by Sports Force Parks, will also offer a “great lawn” and promenade with miniature golf, a ropes adventure course, a bungee trampoline challenge, a playground and food and beverages.

 

“Sports Force Parks at Cedar Point Sports Center will be a world-class destination for sports-focused families," said Jim Arnold, director of Business Development for The Sports Force & Fields, Inc., in a news release. "Our mission to combine sports, family and fun will bring young athletes and their families from across the country and provide them with the opportunity to combine a sports tournament with a family vacation.”

 

Phase two of the project’s development will include adding bike trails along the waterfront along with spots to take in the views of Lake Erie and Cedar Point.

 

Construction on Sports Force Parks at Cedar Point Sports Center will begin at a groundbreaking ceremony at 2 p.m. Friday.

 

The park expects construction to be complete in the fall of 2016 with the Sports Center opening in the spring of 2017.

Well. I didn't see that coming.

 

I am definetely not in the target audience for this, but I'm sure that the people who enjoy this type of stuff will love it. That said, I can't seem to figure out why they would need 11 baseball fields.

I remember reading an article about that a few months back. I think it's a smart idea. Host tournaments and stuff throughout spring, summer, and fall. That will definitely up ticket sales for the park.

Travel baseball tournaments are huge. Here in Columbus we have a complex with almost 40 fields and they almost have every field taken for big tournaments(softball and baseball). Eleven fields is not that much.

There is a sports complex across I-71 from Kings Island that host tennis tournaments. The park definitely is busy during tournament days. This will bring more out of town guests to Cedar Point.

Magical moments when riding Raptor late evening and taking a look down the midway at sunset against all the other steel in the sky. It's crazy.\

Man Card: REVOKED

"If you build it they will come."

+1!

By "they," do you mean strippers?

Check out the live cam.

 

Crane appears to be doing work on the holding brake, and there are people walking all along the top of the lift.

 

Not entirely sure but i think a train may be up there, if it is than it is probably just for the pull through.

I wonder if they will use that area behind Valravn as a service road/entry for trucks into the park.

 

The circled area would be where the gates could go. The wall circled in blue looks like it's built for a gate already.

Wow! I had no idea that these things were so big. I suppose that it is brilliant to have one of these sports complexes. There must be tons of people coming to see these things, and seeing the park while seeing the game must be really tempting.

The Berliner Complex (if that's the one you are talking about) is huge. I have played in many competitive softball tournaments with upwards of 40 teams.

 

The reason you need that many fields is to keep all the teams in one complex close together to simplify logistics for the organizers and minimize travel time. Nothing worse than playing a triple header in the morning and then having to drive 25 minutes during your lunch break to a different set of diamonds for the afternoon games.

 

I think this is a great business move.

This has actually been in the works for awhile (this is going on the old site of the Griffing Sandusky Airport). It was discussed here umpteenth pages back after numerous articles about it and then it was finally stated that it was going to happen during last summers Cedar Fair Conference Call. Sports Force operates it and its on Cedar Point owned land (they purchased the airport land following the closing of the airport).

 

With that said, this is a great move for the park, especially with the second phase coming in (finally Mini-Golf back at the resort ;p ). Not only does this attract sports to the area, but it will also mean more hotel rooms being booked at Cedar Point properties (as part of a package for the teams and tournaments). This will be really great for business (and not just for Cedar Point either, but for Erie County as a whole).

I would imagine that the decision to invest in this way was not just made lightly, so good for Cedar Fair diversifying a bit. I'm always happy to see new investments in Ohio! I hope they have a shuttle service

Maybe if there is enough room on the complex, add a "sport resort" or something along the lines.

 

Just thinking of this now, Matt Ouimet worked for Disney before he came over to CF, wonder if the ESPN World Wide of Sports had anything to do with this. Maybe he saw at how much Disney benefits(making money) from having tournaments like the cheering comp every year and wants to see how it would be up at America's Roller Coast.

Yes Larry, Berliner! I live a few minutes from it and still play a couple nights a week there in the summer. It has always been big on adult leagues but little league girls and boys tournaments have kinda taken over. On certain weekends that place is packed.

Actually, it is not a brake. It is a chain. It is referred to as the "drop chain".

Don't fret. I've noticed that most enthusiasts refer to it as a holding brake, although most of us know its technically a chain

Lol oh god. I call it a holding brake too, who cares? That's what Rollercoaster Tycoon calls it and their names are always accurate.

 

PS: Power Tower is my favorite Woah Belly ride.

Hahahaha...the "Whoa Belly". Almost forgot about that. Those good ole' launched free falls.

 

If we're using RCT terms, then Valravn isn't a Dive Machine. It's a Vertical Roller Coaster.

Vertical Drop Coaster, I think ^

 

This is where my nerdiness and my time playing RCT as a kid shows. It's known as the Vertical Roller Coaster in RCT1 and the Vertical Drop Roller Coaster in RCT2.

 

RCT2 is also when they finally decided to change the name of Whoa Belly to what it actually is in real life .

Did they change it for the UK version? I have no memory of Whoa Belly when I played RCT1.
