Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

What are you supposed to do? Some B&M's have a rattle.

I always figured if they had more ball & socket joints at the track/structure connection, they would be much smoother. Hinges of any kind would be nice. Look how silky smooth most Schwarzkopfs are. And Giavanola. Even super-sturdy Intamin rides (Millennium Force and Maverick come to mind) have a distinctive *grind* to them.

 

It doesn't take away from the mediocre ride experiences though, that's for sure.

Bhahahaha!!! Thank you for that.

If we were really going to do that, it would have to be SFGAm vs CP. I mean, does Magic Mountain have any non-coaster rides left? CP wins operations, and rides are debatable. We all know that, right?

 

Lex Luthor & Jet stream are the only ones that come to mind. Everything else is your run of the mill carnival flat. I've heard Nagashima Spa Land is like the CP of Japan, so maybe that's another better comparison than SFMM.

Hey, don't knock em. Those carnival flats can be some damn good rides!

 

EDIT -- Ew, except Larson Loops and fireball rides.

Well it's moved over to MF now but they did zoom in close up and I managed to get a couple screen shots. I'm only sharing what was shown on Cedar Point's public webcam so this shouldn't be an issue. I just grabbed a screen shot each time the cam went to this view.

Nice job! You can absolutely take screenshots of the webcam. They wouldn't show us anything they wouldn't want us to see. It looks like they're adding some significant height to the ride.

Wow! Awesome screen grabs!

 

Thanks for getting a hold of those and sharing. Top notch work.

 

That lift hill does NOT look like it has any intention on giving up soon. AND THERE'S A BOAT! Perhaps one of my favorite TPR ongoing stupid jokes ever. With Cedar Point not even leaking a word about this it must possibly be a 2018 installation that is going to have an enormous amount of promotion and build up during the 2017 season (although the pre-lift could have been better imo LOL). I think Cedar Point is going to go about this at a safe pace, build up momentum, and knock any other park in the world out with what they're doing in 2018.

 

Go Cedar Point!
