Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Honestly, if they really want to just tear it down, they would have done what Six Flags did to Psyclone or what CF did to Son of Beast and reduce it down to nothing but a pile of splintery rubble that doesn't even halfway resemble a coaster anymore. The fact that they appear to be taking it apart piece by piece instead of full-on scrapping it indicates to me that there is more to the story than just "RIP Mean Streak"

 

OK, you win. It's being shipped to Dorney Park and is expected to open in 2018. Not as an RMC, though RMC is in charge of the relocation and re-erection effort.

I can confirm this. Mean Streak will be placed in Hydra's current spot, however it's too expensive to remove Hydra, so they are simply building Mean Streak to be intertwined with Hydra. That is why they are taking it off piece by piece so reconstruction is easier.

 

For the name, they are still deciding between Green Streak, Moldy Wood, and Hercules: The Revenge of the Revenge.

 

Well, if you believe the current "Word on the street" then you're correct!!

 

Edit:

 

Word on the street just changed. Now Mean Streak is headed to Canadas Wonderland.

Maybe Gatekeeper, Gatekeeper is like a 25 million dollar pile of enthusiast repellent. Bonus points because riding it gives me the excuse to pull my favorite move of "Hey Brit, I didn't plan this until right now but since we're here and we're going to the front of the park we should ride the Sky Ride, I just now thought of this, it wasn't pre-planned at all".

You can take the Sky Ride from Raptor to Valravn, if you REALLY need an excuse.

I've actually done this even though it's probably the same amount of walking to just walk to Valravn from the exit. I think pretending it made sense to take the Sky Ride from the Snoopy Boutique to Gatekeeper was my most ridiculous moment.

Hey, I rode the Sky Ride, boarding on the North Side, to go to Snoopy's Boutique. Proof that there's always an excuse to do the Sky Ride.

^ Yeah, you definitely need to go to Pink's. The menu is limited of course, compared to the dozens of varieties that the Hollywood location has, but it's very good stuff, and one of the best places to eat in the park. Last year Coastermania took place during Brews & BBQs, so make sure you get to that too!

Thanks for confirming that I am not an enthusiast. Gatekeeper is definitely my favorite B&M at the park.

 

I too enjoy Gatekeeper!! Glad I am not an enthusiast too!

 

Great to see where Pink's Hot Dogs was, in that overhead park shot!

 

I'm very lazy about getting maps, so this is awesome!

 

Thanks!

 

Pinks is amazing!! We always end our night with Pinks, and it never lets us down!! So worth the sometimes long wait!!

Hi guys! so after editing a couple youtube videos and going through and deleting multiple duplicate pictures, I thought it would be time to post a medium sized TR from my trip to the park

 

 

First off this was my first time at the park since 2014, back when Mantis was closed and rougarou transformation was taking place. I would like to start with a couple reviews of the three main coasters i wanted to hit no matter what:

 

-Valravn: HOLY COW. This was my first dive coaster and boy oh boy, I dont know what was better, getting in the front row after a 10 minute wait for ERT, or seeing TONY CLARK HIMSELF on station Master! Loved the somewhat airtime on the hills and the selection of inversions but i stick with what someone told me while working Vortex saturday night, Valravn is a one trick pony.

 

-Rougarou: I was waiting for this ride as i never rode a floorless coaster and wanted to see how it felt differently since the last time i rode it, it was Mantis. Needless to say i was somewhat surprised and impressed and i hope more parks decide to start doing Standup/Floorless conversions.(ALSO DOES THIS COUNT AS A NEW CREDIT!)

 

-Maverick: Last time i rode maverick was with the old hard shell OTSR. BOY OH BOY my top ten list will be updated. This is in the top 5 hands down!

 

 

 

Anyways enough of talking and heres my latest youtube video and pictures!

Maybe Gatekeeper, Gatekeeper is like a 25 million dollar pile of enthusiast repellent.

 

Thanks for confirming that I am not an enthusiast. Gatekeeper is definitely my favorite B&M at the park.

 

GateKeeper is my favorite B&M there as well, and is a fantastic coaster! While I may have been more enthusiast-y in my younger years, taking about 8 years off from avid coaster enthusiasm (and getting old) has definitely moved me well out of stereotypical "enthusiast" territory, and into a strange in-between place between GP and enthusiast. Also, GateKeeper is NOT forceless, unless you ignore all real-life definitions of what force is. Just thought I'd again flash my GP non-enthusiast side!

 

Oh, and seeing this picture of yours, drummermattk, was really strange and bittersweet for me...

thumb_img_3682_2.jpg.9270d116970afc42703d9f5bff60ef49.jpg

 

given only a month ago, my daughter and I were sitting in that very train, enjoying a special Father/Daughter day in the park...14322352_10154613718266995_2670149009731840124_n.jpg.6b5a501c6049e0f49975be22694f3228.jpg

 

Don't get me wrong, I won't really "miss" Mean Streak! But there's always a slight wistfulness when something you experienced, especially with a special someone or on a special day, is gone forever...

I'm all for "Avid Attraction Enjoyers" being a thing. I call myself an "enthusiast"...but I love to ride rides, I don't really care what it is. If it's a park and I'm there and it's open...I'm down for a ride. I do really enjoy Gatekeeper, about the only ride I don't enjoy in CP is the mine train because it's such a squeeze.

Quick question, is the entire park closed for halloweekends once the haints open, or do they have rides open as well? I tried looking on the website like I did for KI, but didn't see whether or not any rides were open.

 

Certain rides are closed on Friday. Closed coasters include corkscrew, mine ride, rougarou, and Gemini. As for flats, some of those close as well but I don't have a list, I'm sure it's on the CP site somewhere
