Recommended Posts

Heres a new construction pic for you!

Slide pieces look to be ready to installed soon as they are waiting on the concrete.

 

Wow, It's been awhile since I've looked at the webcams. They are making good progress on the Breakers new wing (I assume that's what it is, right?) Also, glad to see they are making some upgrades to the waterpark here, always thought it was one of the worst in the chain of those I've been to.

Bert and I got ours too, this morning!

Got mine! We'll need a TPR meetup!

 

Simple. Wear a TPR t-shirt that morning, and we'll find each other. Easy!

 

 

 

(And if you don't have a TPR shirt of any kind/type.....why not?)

It looks so different, but it will be such a welcome addition to the water park...count me in as one of the ones that is psyched for this revamp.

 

Also put me in the camp as one of the folks that has been remaining patient for the MS announcement. The only photos that I have seen thus far have been the legal ones posted on here - and I'm cool with that.

 

Really stoked for the announcement!

Both Maverick and Top Thrill Dragster were nearly complete before they were announced. Building a ride and not announcing it is nothing new.

 

Much like Dragster I fully expect them to ride the hype train - everyone is talking about Cedar Point in the coaster world. The general public will be taking notice once the park opens. As long as people are talking there is no reason to rush to announce. The park has gone on record saying Dragster was going to be announced much earlier but there was so much buzz and news coverage without an announcement they held off.

 

I see you haven't left the first stage of grief yet: denial.

 

I think acceptance should have kicked in for everyone when even Screamscape is having doubts of it coming in 2017.

With the leaks with Gatekeeper and Valravn I feel like this is Cedar Point saying, "see we can keep things secret if we want to, we'll even build it right in front of your face and still keep it under wraps!"

 

Looking forward to the announcement.

So will RMC Streak open when Kings Dominion gets that launched flying coaster screamscape talked about?

 

personal attacks aren't how you handle opposing views

 

A launched flying coaster sounds painful. Thank god we're getting an RMC instead.

 

Although I would love to see a Zamperla launched flyer someday to see the reactions!

Kind of random and early post but how do you guys think opening day crowds will be this year? Expect anything too stupid? Assuming nothing new in the normal park do you guys think the park will be just like a normal weekday in June? Thanks guys!

but factor in the crappy ops

 

I think this is the first time I've heard this said about CP

 

It's usually bad at the beginning of the season because a lot of new employees are still trying to figure out their job, and get into the routine of things.

I was there Opening Day last year, and yeah, not a stellar day for park operations all around. I've been in years past, and it hasn't been terrible... However, I feel like the park in general has been getting more crowded than it used to be 10 years ago even. Weekdays in May and the last week of August used to be dead, but now they still maintain a healthy amount of guests, though there are still dead days (such as the Thursday in May last year where I never waited more than 12 minutes for Valravn!)

Opening day sucks. Large numbers of rides not operating because they just didn't finish setting them up and getting them certified or they're way understaffed, staffing itself is not yet competent, and the weather trends towards being lousy. I wish I didn't feel that way, but I almost never go and feel satisfied. Also last year's "preview day" was a disaster with there being an hour+ of traffic just to get into the park, which was already full of people from Ohio State Day but only a fraction of the rides open.

Is it time for Magnum to get new trains? I really like the layout and airtime points but the restraints make it seem painful going up hills.

 

Give B&M a call possibly?

 

You just need to learn how to ride Magnum and it will change your life!!!

Do I (again) need to bring up the fact that Magnum did over a million and a half riders last year, the fourth highest total of any ride in the park despite not having early entry or nah?

 

"I personally don't like it, therefore I declare that they need new B&M trains that they've never put on an Arrow before that can't accommodate riders over 6 feet tall which won't be a problem at all in the United States!"

There you go again Bill... being all smart, pratical, and realistic. . . You know that doesn't work here.

What is the correct way? If I recall, it involves leaving the lap bar a little loose, tightening the seatbelt more, and not riding in a wheel seat. Yes?

Tighten the belt (as much as possible) and you should be good, seat location doesn't really matter.

 

Sure, you shouldn't ever have to "know how to ride" a ride, and I know that speech is coming but I'd once again point to the ridership numbers as a testament to the fact that even though some people find it rough, the ride is immensely popular overall.
