Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Well, I guess it does have the most Stengel dives... .

 

I agree with those who say this may be Cedar Points best ride. It is very complete, and has almost anything you could ask for on a coaster.

I think Maverick is just a fill in ride, just like Wicked Twister was. I personally think Cedar Point's next coaster will be a 500 - 600 footer. They just need the right technology to come up with it.

 

I think you're crazy if you call this a "fill-in ride." First you bash Griffon now you bash Maverick. I think it'll be an awesome addition to the park next year and it might just be Cedar Point's #1 coaster.

I'm glad that CP didn't try to break speed or height records with this one. Now-a-days, it seems thats all anybody ever wants...I love the layout, elements and themeing. It looks to be a very thrilling ride. Though, I think CP could have done better with the color scheme...I think Maverick should have been some dark brown color for it's track instead of the ever so popular repeatedly used red...but thats just me.

 

i also agree with you on the color, red does seem like a very odd color for this ride...

I heard that Cedar Point is not competing anymore for the tallest and fastest roller coasters. I think because Six Flags Magic Mountain is having financial problems and might eventually close. If that happens, CP will have the world's tallest and fastest roller coaster. And besides, SFMM stole CP's ride pretty much, I think.

I think Maverick does look like a great all around coaster. I can't wait to see how the "theming" turns out.

 

If Magnum is Maggie, and Millenium Force is Millie, what is Maverick?

 

How about Mavis?

I hope OnPoint has a contest for trash can placement!

When did they move Kinda Ka across country?

 

Edit- This just made me think of something. With Six Flags out of the BIG coaster business for the time being, would it make good business sense CP to reclaim the records in 2008?

Yep, Cedar Fair buying ot SF! Wouldn't "Lotte Dot Magic Mountain" sound great?

 

Like having "Tatsu Splash Battle", "Gold Washer" as well as "Spiller's Revenge", "Wetman The Ride" and most important: "Drown!". After denying you that well deserved Aquatrax at CP, they definitely should do something about that...

It definitely seems like it coulda went something like this:

 

CP - Hey, Intamin! We want an Aquatrax...Design one for us!

 

Intamin - Okayz! Don't worry, it will roxorz!

 

CP - Thanxorz!

 

*month goes by...*

 

CP - Wait! Aquatraxorz capacity suxorz! We want Rocket trains!

 

Intamin - Okayz! Don't worry, it will still roxorz!

 

 

Regardless if it went down like that or not, the ride should be a blast! (And it reminds me of RCT, too!)

Now that I think of it...Knotts is getting the lower-capacity Aquatrax.

 

Watch.
