Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Oh no...

This may be the 'Mean Streak is "closing"' tweet/announcement. I wonder with all the GCI love if they will RMC it or give it the Ghost Rider treatment and have GCI re-profile some drops and update the ride.

 

 

IF this is the case, I wonder if they will remove the mid course brake run like they did with Ghostrider.

Probably not. Mean Streak is over 5000 feet long, so going to a 2 train operation with no midcourse would make operations really slow.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves here too much, but if this were Mean Streak's closure and it was an RMC, there's a few options with this.

1) Keep the mid-course for three trains

2) Shorten the ride slightly for efficient two train operations (very unlikely)

3) Remove mid-course and still run three trains (see Banshee)

 

I'm really curious what this announcement actually is though.

Well Kings Island stole Cedar Point's GCI Woodie so that's eliminated

 

Kings island didn't steal anything.....

Of course they did. It was payback for Cedar Point stealing the dive coaster from Canada's Wonderland. Paramount parks gotta stick together.

Interesting information about the water main break. We left the park at around 9:00 and we weren't even aware of the problem. However, we had noticed that they had the causeway blocked off on our way out of the park though. . . Now we know why.

Did you comment a similar thing on facebook? I saw a comment on Cedar Point's post regarding this with the exact same info - left at 9 and never heard a thing about it while there.

 

On another note, how long should this take to repair? I paid for tomorrow in advance and am travelling for 7 hours to get there, and would be really disappointed if I went there to find it closed.

At least it happened only an hour-and-a-half before closing. People would've been much angrier if this happened early in the day, causing the park to be closed almost the whole day. At least those who were there all day still got nearly twelve hours.

 

I was there tonight (drove 5 hours, arrived around 7pm, and had planned for a full day tomorrow with early entry). It wasn't until about 10pm tonight that word spread that the place was shutting down, and even then, nobody knew what was really happening. Fingers crossed they're able to open tomorrow as I've been wanting to visit CP for ages and I doubt I'll be back in this area again in the future.

Nope, I haven't posted anything about it on any social media.

As I'm sure you've read by now, you should be good. Cedar Point will still open at 10am today, however Soak City will not open today, nor will there be any early entry.

Heads up to anybody going to the park this morning. Traffic is backed up to castaway Bay to get on the causeway. Not sure if the causeway is blocked off or what...

 

*edit* causeway is down to one lane for part of the way. Not many people in the parking lot.
