Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

It'll be August before the "its opening in 2017!" people fully admit that won't happen.

 

sad and shocked

 

LMAO

Twisted Colossus. December 21, 2014. Two years ago today.

 

Pre-lift, lift, most of the first drop and the first airitme hill are the only segments complete. Mean Streak is already half-way up the lift hill and it's 4-weeks behind TC's construction timeline. Also note that both Goliath & TC were still having track installed just a month prior to opening to the public. Everythig concrete points to a 2017 opening. Not syaing this is absolute but there is, so far, more concrete evidence to support a 2017 opening than a 2018 one.

Wait, we're still doing this?

 

What did I say? Predictable as the day is long.

 

Still waiting on those recipts.

 

Even if I managed to have a full copy of the contract with the agreed upon terms and conditions and theorized date of opening, I wouldn't post it just because I get to see people come up with the craziest stuff to justify this belief.

Twisted Colossus was also formally announced in late August of 2014, why would Cedar Point build a new major coaster to open in 2017 and not announce it or start marketing it until like 4 or 5 months prior to it's opening.

There's no room for this type of rational thinking here.

 

The same scenario happened with Top Thrill Dragster. Track installation was complete weeks before a single peep from CP. They let the speculation build untill making a formal announcement in January of 2003.

*Over a decade ago with a different ownership group when the park didn't already announce their new additions for the next year with a totally different type of ride when it wasn't financially expedient to close an existing coaster early since it was expensive to run, generated no in park spending and was tremendously unpopular when the park didn't just pretty much tell people it wasn't opening until the following season.

Dear God I feel old. I remember watching TTD being built, and I remember my fist ride like it was yesterday. It's hard to believe it's been over a decade.

 

hmmm, truth or troll?

 

Obviously this just means New Mean Streak will be opening in 2018, not 2017. . . So we can all just stop debating it now.

I never posted that this WILL open in 2017, only gave my constructive argument on how a 2017 opening is possible. Yet it was met with pages of typical opinion bashing and non constructive counter arguments. 2017/2018 are both possible, and I gave legitimate and sourced arguments as to why a 2017 opening is possible at this moment in time. If you disagree, that's fine. But please read before you post.
