Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Seems to be a simplified version of the previous logo. But at least it's better than the LA Chargers' logo.

 

In other news, the park's website has also been given an update.

 

 

I know it will take some getting used to, but as of right now I don't like the new website.

In case anyone hasn't noticed the trend over the past 5 years has been to basically take away the 3D look of logos and make them flat, basic, and 2D.

 

Cedar Point has apparently finally caught up with the trend.

 

Look up any type of logo be it from soda companies, to fast food, to applications on your phone, anything that's been around for a more than a decade or so, and you'll see they have changed their brand logo to being basic and not like things used to look in the 90's. It's a new trend that will probably be around for another decade, then something new will pop up and it will change again.

Indeed. Saw a commercial for Taco Bell the other day and was shocked to see how basic their logo looks now:

I'm not making this up -- it's really that simplified.

Seems as if Cedar Point has just hopped on the bandwagon as well -- clearly not to the same extent as above, and frankly it doesn't look bad, but definitely simpler and flatter all around.

Interesting how the park logo is incredibly simple and new ride signs are more and more complex and three dimensional (Banshee, Gatekeeper, Fury, Leviathan, Valravn, etc). I don't mind the logo, but I kinda liked the wavy look of the old logo. Really doesn't matter in the end though.

Was checking out the Cedar Point Shores water park website and noticed that the new children's area is called Lemmy's Lagoon. It mentions that Lemmy is the name of Lake Erie's "legendary monster". Can't say that I have ever heard of Lemmy...other than this guy.

 

 

Oh yeah, the swim up bar is now called "Muffleheads Beach Bar"....LOVE it!

 

Edit: for all you drinkers out there, there is also going to be a new bar by the wave pool called Schooner's Bayside Bar.

 

Loving the new look of Soak City already!

Cleveland's AHL team is the Monsters... Great Lakes Brewing also does an IPA called "Lake Erie Monster". The story is known around the region, although the name Bessie is more commonly used...

I greatly enjoy their Chillwave.

 

Ha! I was just looking for Chillwave at Binny's. They didn't have it. Seriously one of the best double IPA's I've had so far.

 

If you're a fan of double IPA's or hops, definitely look out for it.

I've heard of the legend of the Lake Erie Monster and have also visited Great Lakes Brewing a couple of times (and had Lake Erie Monster - yum)...I just never heard anyone call it "Lemmy" before.

 

I also remember when they had a replica of the Lake Erie Monster in the river near Huron on Rt. 2 coming into Sandusky...anyone else remember that? I think that it's been gone for a while now, unfortunately.

 

 

Let me tell y'all a little yarn about my first interaction with Lake Erie Monster...

 

A few years back, we stayed at Geneva On The Lake, which is a touristy summer community just northeast of Cleveland on the lake. We were on a trip back from CP and just decided that this place looked too retro and cool to not check out, so we got a hotel right on the lake.

 

The people that ran the hotel were all down on the beach partying and invited us to come down for a drink (which we of course did). They told us if we had ever "done the Lake Erie Monster challenge". Of course we laughed and asked what the hell they were talking about!

 

Turns out that they have a Lake Erie Monster drinking challenge where you get a card and then have to have a drink at every bar on the strip (I think that there were 12 or 13). At each one, you got your card punched after you ordered a drink and then when you got all of them punched, you got a t-shirt that said that you conquered the Lake Erie Monster challenge.

 

So we ended up getting pretty sh%t-faced that night and when we got up the next day, we realized that there were two bars that we never made it to! Troopers that we are, we visited those last two bars, had two beers at like noon, got our t-shirts and then headed home!

I heard Geneva on the Lake used to have a mini amusement park at one point. Never heard of the place(amusement park or the small town) though until I joined this site. But of course they got rid of it. So I'm guessing GotL is more of the "grown up" alternative to Sandusky. Like instead of the great mega amusement park and abundance of water park hotels its more about partying and couples strolling on the beach. Meh that sounds ok and all but since im a kid at heart and LOVE coasters Ill take Sandusky over Geneva anyday!! Nothing against drinking though as its fun to do sometimes but it wouldnt be my main vacation choice .(like it would be a side thing id like to do during a vacation but not as mainly the ONLY thing I'd do like many others would.) As for the tranquil romantic strolls and mani/pedi and spa type stuff......yawns and lame sauce!!
