Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

There you go! The first picture is of a post, signaling us to look into his post. His post reads, "Quiet now. Not for long." The first phrase has two words, the second phrase has three words, so we must look at the second and third pictures.

 

Second picture has Pipe Scream, which is slated as a coaster, and it looks like one part of the coaster will swoop over another part of the coaster. Not a big deal. But then we look to the THIRD picture!!!!

 

Two coaster humps visible in the back!!! The words on either side, DIVE IN, DRIVE IN!! If you go back to the Pipe Scream photo, now it is CONFIRMED!! DUELING COASTERS, one that will drive in while the other will DIVE over ZOMG!!!

Check out this amazing photo compliments of Dave Morgan!! 

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?

Is one part of a ride not allowed to be adjacent to another part of a ride without being on separate tracks? If the dual-width structure is there, maybe two parts of the same track running parallel? I know it's a stretch, parallel track would be unprecedented.

Where do people see a dual-width structure, other than the top of the 2nd turn? The rest of the structure is still only single-width.

 

The top hat track is slightly cantilevered inside the structure, which extends pretty far outside and slightly upward. There's some new wood and pretty wide beams in the following valley too. The ride could definitely be coming back for adjacent runs in spots but you usually get a setup like this in that case, to get back to that spot and climb to the same elevation would be odd unless it was tearing through the outerbank at very high speeds. The extra structure could be for themeing elements or something too, I'm just saying that the structure is odd and it's one possible explanation for it.

What if, and only an IF, this is a lift and a mid launch, the launch syncs up with the left and they duel that way? Kind of like Twisted Colossus, except not two lifts but a lift and a launch? Again, this is only an "IF."

 

The launch could hold if needed to sync up with the lift so all the duel elements were perfect. I don't see this ride having two lifts.

 

Also, because I can't miss this opportunity (engage sarcastic tone) "listen to the end of the video, there is the sound of a coster launching, not a lift sound or rushing coaster. LAUNCH CONFIRMED!"

I don't think there is going to be any dualing aspect to this coaster. They would have put the ledgers up already for a second track (example outward bank turn) and the extra wood is just from the old structure. I don't see a way that they could make this coaster like Colossus, definitely just a traditional coaster.

^ I doubt Mean Streak will duel. Plus, depending on how many supports are being removed, I'd guess it would be less than three quarters the original length

I don't see this becoming a dueling coaster. A) there's only one lift, and the drop doesn't really look wide enough yet for a second drop. B) they probably would have already put ledgers down for a second track since they were worked on that area already. Why would RMC move all the equipment all the way back through the course and climb up there to work on a second track when they already worked in that area a while ago?

 

IIRC, both sides of Twisted Colossus were built at the same time.

 

This "dueling" speculation is REALLY stretching it.

Since fluffy, fluffy bunnies are stuffed with medicine and goo, what are fluffy fluffy snakes stuffed with?

Corn

Aaaaannnnnd if this were a TPR Tour, someone would already be asking if there were any grain free options.

The Mean Streak structure is very wide, between 4 and 6 bents thick in places. There is plenty of space to do whatever they would like to do. There's enough space for, like, four coasters in the existing structure. Only time will tell what they have planned out, but there is plenty of structure and space to do whatever they want in there.

 

With the second hill, we have already seen a very good example of track traversing over bents and ledgers in any direction they want it to. Just my 2 cents.
