Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

They do not expect it to be a secret in that sense. The timing of the announcement influences sales for this and next season. They will announce it at Coastermania! June 2nd. Also details are not known. Delaying announcing the stats gives other parks less time to one up them. If they had announced already then it is possible whatever records are included would be broken a year sooner.

 

Fixed.

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

So basically there were about as many rides open as there would be in peak season with 15 mph winds.

Good point, but if it is for 2018 since the 2017 coasters are pretty much nearly complete they wouldn't have to worry about records being stolen from them, they could announce it since they already have a head start on all the other amusement parks.

Is that confirmed, or just word in the Dippin' Dots storage room?

Does anyone have any insight on these two quotes?

The only thing I can think of with this quote is that Tony isn't lying. Technically Mean Streak is being taken down, and Mean Streak does not exist at Cedar Point any more. What exist now is a new (unnamed) coaster that took the place of Mean Streak.

 

At least, that looks like how they are wanting to approach the topic.

Am I the only one that isn't dying to hear a RMC Meaner Streak announcement? I like the anticipation.

 

I'm just fine with the random photos that pop up from time to time, and I don't need an official announcement to know what's going on.

 

I know it's driving a lot of people nuts, and Cedar Point is banking on that. This has to be the most talked about non announced coaster ever.

 

Plus once it's announced, the mystery is gone. I like not knowing.

Why in the world would they announce this ride ahead of their 2017 season if it's not going to be open by then?

 

It's already well established that Cedar Point will not open a flagship ride halfway through their season. The secrecy behind the existence of this transformation is nothing but marketing. Consider from a non-enthusiast perspective, that some people might hold off on purchasing a 2017 ticket or season pass until this bad ass new ride is open.

 

Of course the transformation is common knowledge among enthusiasts. But outside of a few local articles, the transformation does not exist in the eyes of the public. There is literally no incentive for them to announce anything, and it makes perfect sense why they are deliberately avoiding mention of the ride both officially and on their affiliate sites. Meanwhile they have been dropping hints to enthusiasts since as long as RMC conversions have been a thing.

 

The disaster that is this thread is just proof of how effective their marketing is.

New Mean Streak Photos are sick...More out every day.

Banned.

 

I don't know what is entertaining me more. The amazing marketing strategy behind the ride or the stupid people on our forums. I guess both are fairly equal.

I'm right there with you. The ride will open in 2018, and having the park announce the ride sometime soon doesn't change that fact.

 

On the topic of 2017, the water park expansion is looking fantastic--and much needed. When I last visited in 2014, it was pretty obvious that their water park wasn't quite on par with some of Cedar Fair's other ones. I'm glad Knott's and CP are both getting large expansions to theirs because they both desperately needed it.

Will we ever see a "like" button on these forums? Lol. Posts like this would be well deserving.

A-FREAKING-MEN!

 

The game is good. The game is sound. The game is fun.

 

Not knowing is the only thing that makes the game fun.

 

Did you really want to find that stash of Xmas presents in your parents' bedroom closet on dec. 12th, and then have to fake all of that excitement on Xmas morning, or, in hindsight, would it have been a crapload more fun to just simply f@€king wait?

I always managed to find my presents early...

 

On a related note: I don't care about movie spoilers, either.

 

Now, I couldn't care less if they announce anything, but I would like them to acknowledge it so I had "legitimate" access to progress updates.

Will there be construction walls around the attraction with some kind of teasers?

 

I'm assuming that they'll just close the train gates and quietly celebrate the labor they're saving by not having to pay someone to staff the gate this season. I expect some kind of teaser at some point, but construction walls seem a little unnecessary.

 

If they do just leave the train gates closed what's the over/under on how long someone stands there waiting for the gates to open? Also how many days into the season before someFIFOone says screw it and just crosses the tracks anyways?

 

Taking bets starting now......

bluestreak is walking on thin ice with that one.

I was pointing out the email interaction between tony and the news source. Realizing now that a screenshot of the text would've been more appropriate than a link to an article with pictures. My apologies.

We've thought about it. And I think having a LIKE Button would replace some actual discussion and we like the forums to be as active as possible.

True, as people would take the shortcut and just click like instead of contributing to the discussion.
