Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

It will be very interesting to see what they do end up doing to Mean a streak. On one hand it would make a great RMC but on another hand it takes up SO MUCH land that it could be made into multiple rides. One thing I always saw coming to CP would be a drop tower since they lack in that department. Time will tell

Time will tell

 

Yes it will, especially if the time you're referring to is the Spring of 1998 when they built a 240 foot tall drop tower right in the center of the park.

 

Pictures, or its not true. You know the rules.

Man, this thread got savage while I was gone today!

 

FWIW, I did read on another site that will not be named that somebody actually called CP, and somebody there said something will be announced tonight... *shrugs* Not saying I believe THAT, but I will be a little surprised if no hints about MS's future come from tonight... Not shocked, but surprised.

Hello,

 

Long time listener, first time caller. There were a couple things in the last few days that finally made me want to jump into the discussion a little:

 

^^^^on this thread a few pages back ejot said he emailed and they also told him they may announce something tonight. That said, I agree with most others; the original wording about the announcement was purposefully vague, I believe. Good chance we won't hear anything tonight about Mean Streak, but I'll be happy if we do obviously.

 

 

The other thing i read with much interest was the hotel discussion, since I've been trying to get a group trip together with my GP friends...as all of my friends are GP, and I would guess that I am too(or just genuinely busy and too lazy to even drive 30 mins to SFSTL) compared to you guys. But as I've gone through the process, I definitely think staying at any of the properties on the peninsula is worth it to me. I've been looking at the weekend of Oct 23-25 for me and my girlfriend. If I've done everything correctly, If I were to buy the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday tickets, and parking for those 3 days online it's $304.59. The "Ultimate Halloweekend package" gets you all the entry and parking obviously, for $596.10. So essentially it's $145.75 a night. And IDK what value you put on early entry...plus ability to throw some food and beverages(adult and otherwise) in the fridge in the room and go back there conveniently whenever to eat or relax.

 

I guess the short of it is, it seems like there is a greater value(in my case $87 bucks saved per night minimum) for non pass holders to stay there. I can definitely see where having a Platinum Pass would actually make it less appealing to stay on the peninsula.

 

I have enjoyed following this thread for a long time and have read every post since a couple months before the Valravn announcement, and just wanted to share my thoughts on the hotel thing. Thanks!

I don't think they have an answer because an answer would give hint to the future of the development.

 

The wording says after the ride has closed. When did it say immediately afterward? Next summer would be after the ride has closed. I'll keep an eye open tonight, but it might not happen tonight, or even this year.

Unfortunately, I cannot remember the source, but I do remember analyzing the exact statement. See if you can spot the difference between what was said, and what many people seem to have heard:

 

"[Plans for the future of Frontier Town] will be announced after the closing of Mean Streak on September 16th."

 

vs

 

"[Plans for the future of Frontier Town] will be announced, after the closing of Mean Streak, on September 16th."

 

Similarly:

"A Panda eats shoots and leaves."

Or

"A Panda eats, shoots, and leaves"

 

If I said I wasn't hoping for an announcement today, that would be a lie. However, I am patient enough to wait until the announcement is made, and not twist my underwear in a bunch until then.

I can't believe there are so many people who what to ride that mountain of junk.

It's people like you that ruined the ride for everyone else. Mean Streak was one of the smoothest wooden coasters when i rode it earlier this year, front seat ride. Or are you just not smart enough to realize the front of the train is smoother than the back?

There is absolutely NO REASON for you to be that rude and obnoxious to someone else on our forum. Banned for one week for being an asshole.
