Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Gotta love the technology they use to build these multi-million dollar rides. Slap an orange road cone onto the bottom of a sand bag, duct tape some pvc pipe and dangle it from a crane. Genius!

 

Hey, if it gets the job done...

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

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

Well, where else will you get a funnel THAT big? If it saves 30 bucks from buying some huge pre-fabbed funnel - more power too em as ya said.

Why couldn't Clint have "nudged" Mean Streak with the car?!

 

Anyway, thanks a bunch (to you and the Crew) for that update. I've never seen most of those angles before. Love the final "airtime-filled hill" shot.

Hey everyone!

 

Thanks for all the kind posts. My girlfriend is kinda new at this roller coaster stuff and she is the one who took the pictures well I was filming stuff. She was so excited when I emailed her at work and told her to go to TPR.com She was like "THOSE ARE MY PICTURES!!!" She does not understand how geekie some of us can get!

 

Hope to see every one on the midways!

Wow they have started work on scenery. I am looking forward to seeing how the scenery turns out, hopefully it will be as good as what we are all expecting to see.

 

From what I've heard, everything in the videos will be there.

Not much question that most of what is in the animations will end up in the ride. CF seams committed to that. The question is what will it look like for real. Animations can only go so far showing the beauty that can be achieved.

 

I can't wait to see a POV when they're finished. Hopefully they will post one on the site early to tease us.

Four months is too long a wait.

Does it count as a different credit if you ride it with the plywood in front? I know it's not possible to ride it with the plywood there but I was just wondering. Belson, help me out on this one, I'm curious.

I don't even get the question, JimmyBo...

 

I count coasters.

 

Not relocations, retracks, repaints, rethemes or renames.

 

The 'issue' with my counting stems from my counting powered and water coasters, along with the habit of counting twin tracked coasters twice once I get both sides. Yeah, I'll ride kiddy coasters, too, what of it?

 

Once a certain website gets it's software updated, it should have 'enthusiast mode' and something of a 'credit whore mode'. At that point, I'll stop counting powered coasters or anything else not on the enthusiast mode. Also, if I ever reach 1000, by whatever means, I'll probably stop counting completely.

 

Maverick.

^With the shield on, they do not actually test the ride. Instead, they pull the car through every inch of track very slowly (It can take days sometimes) to make sure that none of the train can hit any scenery, and also to make sure every bit of track is perfect.
