Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

For anyone that missed it, Richard Michael Crosby performed the Last Rites ceremony for Mean Streak.

 

 

Enough of a hint for you?

 

 

Or just another troll job by Cedar Point, they know that we enthusiasts would slobber all over the screen at the mention of that name. Who knows? It could be legitimate, but I'm not jumping on that bandwagon until they actually say so.

No need to temper your expectations here...between "Really More Coming" with Hurler, this teaser, & Mean Streak's closure, there's clearly more afoot than the Huss Frisbee ruse at Carowinds a few years ago.

They've made such a big deal about Mean Streak closing on our local news outlets here since they announced it was closing. Feel bad for Tony as I'm sure he's tired of reporters asking for clues as to what will replace it.

 

Channel 3 did a story on Henry today. Over 16,000 rides on that thing - I give him kudos for withstanding all that beating. The park is supposed to let him on the final ride tonight.

For those who don't get it yet... R(ichard) M(ichael) C(rosby). = RMC. He paused to make it even clearer.

Yeah, that doesn't mean anything. I'm sure Richard Michael Crosby was his real name and the initials are just a coincidence...

 

Good point. But you never know. If it does mean something then it was a cleaver to place it in front of our nose. However, since we have beat RMC over the head, and we will know soon enough, what are some changes people are looking forward to in Frontier Trail? (Besides a new coaster)

 

I would like to see some new shops added to the trail. Maybe even a couple of new restaurants and a flat ride or two.

First time in Johnny rockets in a while. When did they switch to frozen pretty formed burger parties? Nowhere near as good as it used to be.

 

Johnny Rockets is rebranding as a whole into being an entirely generic experience sure to shutter up in most markets and be totally forgotten in a matter of years. Maybe Cedar Point can put the Fascination back in, or hang onto the license long enough that it becomes a novelty like the last Howard Johnson's and Hot N Now restaurants.

Mean Streak line is past the Maverick entrance lollll

And that is why I am in line for Maverick instead.

I happily rode Maverick twice early on with like 5min waits. It's an excellent ride.

 

And I actually enjoyed the 50 min we spent inside Mean Streak waiting it out. The structure is undeniably impressive, and it was cool to take some time and really check it out up close one last time. My row 3 ride itself was, by far, not the best I've had - but still made me crack a few smiles. Glad to get a final ride during the atmosphere of the final day.

 

^Wow. I wonder how many people are lined up for front seat in the station, now that everyone knows Bill's trick.

There was a seven-lap wait for front when we rode. Worth the wait, would have done so if alone.

 

Anyway, we had a GREAT visit tonight. 25min and 10min waits for two front row Dragster night rides. Half-hour Millennium Force waits dwindled to 10min the last hour. Backrow 2nd-to-left-edge Valravn ride was A+. This is a very wisely chosen ride, and serves great purpose in combining "sustained stunning view" with "legitimate thrills". Is it too short? NO! I come back laughing and smiling and happy, so nope.

 

Haunt stuff we did was OK, but we lost some enthusiasm after a long wait for Cornstalkers with the ride lines so attractive. Some good scare actors.!

I'm nerdy and I have no shame: I believe the Frontier Trail is the corridor from the MF tunnel to the Wave Swinger/hospital haunt, while the Frontier"town" is the Maverick/Mean Streak area heading toward Gemini -- which area did you mean? Did I miss a support announcement mentioning new stuff, or are you speculating on your own?

 

Other than eventual new plans for the Shoot the Rapids spot, I'd like to see almost no further changes in the back-left part of the park. Aside from some larger restrooms, I'm good. There's already a fine gift shop near Mean Streak that can be tweaked to anchor the coaster's post-op merchandise. The rustic theme and relative abundance of trees in the Frontier areas make for a great change of pace from the beach views & open plazas of pavement elsewhere. While Mean Streak will benefit greatly from surgery, a Frontier face-lift would be at an ironic risk of getting botched. Cedar Fair doesn't have a track record of doing "rustic-modern" like SDC/Dollywood, so I'd prefer it simply resists the temptation to add back there for the sake of change. Aye, many a generic plaza were born this way.

 

Skyhawk fits in well enough and is fun, but I don't want anything else crowding the aesthetic, creating more pavement, or chopping down trees. Same goes for the old-fashioned shops and petting zoo near Millennium Force: keep the pace slower, keep it shaded. Seeing Twisted Son of Mean Streak's 360 Revenge & Maverick be two kick-butt neighbors to one another is the only change I want to see!
