Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Any one know what the circle things are on the side of the beams. I not sure if i have seen them on other RMC before.

 

I've never had any clue as to what the circular shape on the sides of the ledgers are for but I do know that those same kind have been used on all of the RMC coasters going back to the start with New Texas Giant.

^^Eh, I'm not entirely sure it'll be launched. Dollywood beat CP to the punch with LR, and we've seen how that turned out. So, if they do decide to launch it, it will be different, but I think CP will go for efficiency, but still with records. Random idea, but what about a beyond-vertical drop? On a wooden coaster?

With Maverick right next door?? Nah, seems to redundant.

 

(At least that's what everyone will say)

 

Not with those prelift hops it won't.

 

If Cedar Point wanted it, RMC would design it.

I'm sure they would. But a launch would need the capability of rolling back. You'll see that with any rolling/inclined launch, there's a flat section (block section) at the base of the launch where the train can sit if rolled back (Look at Lightning Rod). This doesn't have that. If it was launched, I'm positive that little hop wouldn't be there.

It won't be a wooden coaster, but I think a beyond vertical drop would be the first for a hybrid.

Good point. However, if CP would get another launched coaster would they get the record for most launched coasters at one park (they currently have three, Maverick, TTD, and Wicked Twister). Or do they already have that record?

Kings Dominion has 3, but had 4 at one time.

Forget the 200 ft. inclined launch, those vertical loops are just

 

Is this RCT3? Also, no offense what so ever, but is that real? Because - AGAIN NO OFFENSE INTENDED - it looks like someone just created some random stuff and passed it off as real.

For the sake of humanity I really hope you are trying to troll. If not humanity is screwed more so than I thought.

I am so freaking stoked for the announcement for this - this is exactly what this coaster needed. It's such a beautiful structure that it would have been a shame to tear it down. It's interesting to think about what they might have been able to do with SoB if RMC had been doing those conversions before they tore it down.

 

I could care less if it opens in 2017 or 2018, I just know that I would like to plan on being there for opening day - whenever it is. Can't wait!

Yep, I can't think of another coaster anywhere that had such a HUGE discrepancy between the beauty of its structure and the disappointment of its ride experience as mean streak did.

 

SO, so, so excited to see what RMC will do with that timber-laden beast of a structure.

Given the slope difference, I bet you they go over 200ft. Mean Streak was already 161, only 39ft to go to reach the world's only "hyper" hybrid.

 

Looking good, excited to see the final layout of this thing.

 

People seriously think this is for 2017? Come on now, give it up. Not happening.
