Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

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

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

Maybe this whole transformation is nothing but a huge April Fools prank, and soon they will start the rest of the deconstruction.

I've heard rumors that this is a $30 million project. If that is the case, a dueling coaster could make sense.

 

I think a dueling coaster is such a neat idea, especially for Mean Steak. Good guys vs. bad guys would be such a fun idea to play around with.

... after all this mention of dueling, am I the only one who now sees all of the extra supports left up, especially on the opposite side of the crazy outward-banked hill, which could potentially be used so both trains could "high-five" towards eachother in the middle? (6 second mark, essentially where the camera is would be where more track is)...

 

...either that or all of this new teasing is rotting my brain and making me see things that aren't actually there...

 

Probably the later.

 

Also 2018 is the 40th anniversary of Gemini! Take THAT all of you ruiners of park anniversaries!

Wouldnt they have to make the structure twice as wide to be able to support a dueling coaster and add a lot of extra structure to support the load? I feel making a regular coaster into a dueling coaster would be more work and money then it would be worth.

It looks like the ride has unusually wide beams across the structure, and there seems to be extra supports on other spots too. It's looking like a mobius racer to me now (maybe with a launch on the MCBR structure instead of a second lift to sync them up?)

Two things:

 

1. It's dueling. dUEling. Please everyone stop misspelling that. You're killing me!

 

2. Anyone who doesn't think this is an April Fool's joke is not very smart. I realize that applies to a few people in this thread. Just putting that out there.

If the whole... "They're coming." thing means ANYTHING... I think it is just Cedar Point's way of saying there are more teasers coming...

 

"They're coming..." as in there are more teasers coming. . . Sure, "they're" and "there" isn't the same thing, but that's about all I think we can take away from this video. . .

Hey nothing wrong with irrational speculation based on the single shred of acknowledgment cedar point makes on a day notorious for purposely spreading intentionally misleading information right?

 

 

...And I totally didn't fall for it myself right?...

I sincerely don't think the video is hinting at anything, I was just entertaining the thought since it was being brought up so much in the forum. And I fixed the spelling...thanks Robb!

The video didn't really say enough to be an April fools joke. In 5 months when they announce are they going to say, "We said 'they' but it was April 1st and it didn't mean anything?" I don't get it. And I'm a little smart. I've been tested.

 

I still think this is the start of a series of teasers and clues till the announcement like Holiday World did with the journal.

I think "They're" was there to simply play into the theme of outlaws rolling into town or something. I don't even think misguiding or fooling fans was Tony's intention.

 

I'll put it this way: Cedar Point trolls their fans 365 days a year. If they wanted to trick the community into thinking Mean Streak would be a dueling RMC in 2018, they wouldn't do it on April Fools Day. Tony is a better troll than that.

The mean streak update twitter account has been pretty coy, assuming it's park PR. It had the 'their' thing and has pointed out the extra supports on the outer bank turn (and the MCBR). The outer banked turn and the wood facing it looks basically like an extended high five already, and TC is the only RMC to use this many of these super wide beams for support. Some video was showing side-by-side airtime hills following the outer bank too. Seems like a possibility to me. A "Showdown" theme would be an easy fit for frontierland.

Absolutely agree with this.

"Hey we are gonna acknowledge the ride but we aren't gonna give any more teasers... yet."

You're an idiot. Please leave our forums so it can be made smarter for the rest of us. Thanks.

You probably also guessed a drop track would be in Mystic Timbers' shed.

 

All of these 'No Limits' sandbox games are really starting to f*** with realistic perspective.

Okay Robb. You run a good site and it's yours. I apologize that I didn't see the April fools angle to that video.

All I did was entertain the idea of the ride dueling. Review my post again. I referred to it as "a neat idea" and "could make sense". I didn't say it was probable or realistic. I just said that it was a fun idea. I don't think anyone on this forum would argue that it's impossible. But I'm sorry that the way I entertained the idea wasn't realistic enough for you.

 

And for the record, I was against the MT drop track idea since day one.

Even though I literally pointed it out right before your post on the topic, and then again right after your post... Just sayin'...

 

Believe me, I'd love a dueling RMC as much as the next guy. But the timing of this video had enthusiast bait written ALL over it!
