I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

So basically there were about as many rides open as there would be in peak season with 15 mph winds.

Looks like there's a bunch of activity at the park today getting ready for the new season. Putting cars back on Witches Wheel and testing Windseeker.

 

Love watching the park come back to life.

Any chance the strippers can make a stop at Dorney?

 

I'm sure a couple of the older more used strippers will stop at Dorney after spending a good amount of time at another park first.

 

I might have laughed too hard at this

LMAO I can see them possibly buying Batman: the stripper from one of the six flags parks in a few years.

It's even better working at a park and watching/helping get the park back to life!

I love how the lake horizon and the sky are blending together in that webcam view. Makes the park look like it's in another world.

 

-JC, pointing out the beautiful things in life...

Right there with ya. Not a very thrilling attraction, but the views are amazing. If you look to your right the entire ride cycle it can be downright majestic.

I like them too, but I don't know about the Harry Potter music.

Yeah, I think Valravn is only running 1 train based on the interval between each cycle. Trains are moving at Raptor again after block testing (probably intentional, but there was a guy walking around checking sensors on the safety brakes for a bit there).

 

In other news, I continue to be a giant nerd.

^Same same.

 

I wonder if it's just maintenance running cycles or if they've handed it over to the ops to start comissioning (Raptor, I'm guessing Valravn isn't quite there yet. Correct me if I'm wrong).

Based on the fact people are walking around the track of Raptor while it runs, I'm guessing commissioning. Hard to say though. When Gatekeeper was running 3 train tests the other day, they were pumping them out very fast. Then, suddenly the next day there was a longer delay making me wonder if they were training ops now.

...Cedar Point is actually planting trees around Valravn. . . It's not going to be just a "grassy field" under the coaster.

 

It'd be nice, if it ended up looking by what they're showing in the concept art over at the CP site...

The walkways beside the grassy field look nice.

Well VF is getting bikers. I'm not sure if that's the short end of the stick or what. Maybe CP's biker's are leaving for VF to make way for...? I know what some of you would want to go into VF's new amphitheater, though.

 

CF's bikers are leaving? That show was incredible! It was like America's Got Talent but way better.

Man, that really does move at a good pace. It always impresses me how quickly dive machines climb the lift. Also yes, the airtime hill CLEARLY has nice floater time, and you can tell the wrap around zero-g roll has some nice positive Gs in the carousel out of the inversion.

That video came out great! This will definitely be a cut above your average dive coaster. I'll be at Cedar Point May 6 for Ohio State Day, hoping to be one of the first to try this thing out!

 

On that note, my buddies and I couldn't get a flight home Saturday so we'll be leaving Sunday and getting tickets for Saturday's opening day...I know it'll be a s**t show but are there any tips you seasoned guys have? We'll be at Breakers and have spent a full day there the Friday before, so I will get to every must-do before then, I'm just looking for any semblance of a strategy to make Saturday less miserable than it could be lol

How busy will the park be on the 9th? I'm going to leave Memphis on the 7th, drive six hours to Lexington and stay the night, and then drive 6 hours the next day to Sandusky... Spend the 9th at the park.. And process in on the 10th. Super nervous about my first season working at Cedar Point!

It'll be completely empty.
