Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

The map looks naked without that giant mass of timber sitting atop the point like a beautiful mane.

 

That's one of my favorite aspects of the RMC conversion. Not only will we be getting a VASTLY improved roller coaster at cedar point that will likely rearrange many people's top 10 list, but a good deal of mean streak's gorgeous and supersized wooden structure is going to be saved, and perhaps even enhanced.

 

It's always been one of the best-looking coasters on the planet in my opinion; I'm very glad it's not going away entirely.

Cedar Point's 2017 Map has been released in the Guest Assistance Guide (last 2 pages). It has the new Mean Streak location depicted as a construction site which is kind of funny for a park map. They're all about fueling this hype train and who could blame them?

 

 

Alright TPR, let's hear it. If you are still firm with your "it'll open in 2017" view, tell me why haha.

FYI, track is placed for Mean Streak's zero-g. It is very large and looks similar to Iron Rattler's inversion:

 

 

The track completes the inversion on the upward incline and is nearly level at the vertical peak of the element. IRat's roll is fantastic (especially in the front when taken at greater speed), so we're looking at something really great here!

 

Also, Mean Streak ledgers following the inversion look to indicate the track will dive to the right and pass under the lift.

Groupon!

One and two day tickets ($42/$70 -- doesn't have to be consecutive). Two days even good through Haunt and in combination with CP shores on a single day, or a one day ticket through labor day. No convenience fees. Get 'em while they are hot!

Thats a great deal, now if only i could get plane tickets on groupon

Yeah, I saw the new image as well, and it looks awesome!

 

an upwardly inclined zero g type inversion that levels out right at the apex of an airtime hill only to then dive down under and through the lift structure followed by an aggressively banked turn to the the right off to parts yet unknown (but likely also awesome).

 

I don't think we've ever seen anything quite like this element before. This thing just keeps looking better and better.

Does anyone know how long the drive from Canton to CP is. Google usually over or underestimates the times.

 

Did this drive last summer. Depending on if you get on the turnpike or not (I recommend the turnpike). Usually at max 2 hours. I think our trip took about an hour and a half. If you don't take the turnpike its easily two and a half hours.

Superb. Ever since the first RMC makeover we've all wanted it for Mean Streak. Can't wait for possibly the worst coaster in the park to become another RMC hit! This place is gunna have the greatest coaster lineup without question

Nah, they're not doing anything to Corkscrew.

 

Ha well...maybe this is me being weird but you know what to expect with Corkscrew. Mean Streak, its such an impressive, beautiful structure, this giant beast and it's such a dreadful ride. Ya know? I don't normally bother with corkscrew or the mine train but MS I ride every time, and am always sad lol

I could only handle 2 rides on Mean Streak, partially due to roughness partly due to being bored

I actually liked the ride even less after the re track...it was slow and dull, so the roughness at least let you feel something. When it was smoother, it was just slow and dull. Its a classic but I wont miss it

Am I the only one who isn't freaking out trying to find the newest "leaked" photos of New Mean Streak??

 

I'm kind of enjoying the waiting for the announcement. I have no doubt that this coaster is going to blow all other RMC's out of the water.

Same, I like the not knowing and being surprised. The potential is definitely there, someone said it somewhere, MS is so big it scrubs off a lot of its speed, so if that can be avoided this could be one big, fast messed up ride!

Mean Streak and Corkscrew tag teamed my back the day I went. If my back had been in better shape I may have ridden Mean Streak again. .

oddly enough, the first time i ever rode mean streak back in '91, i had woken up that morning with a pretty bad back/neck ache from sleeping in a funny position.

 

after one spin on mean streak (our first ride of the day) i was healed! seriously, the thing had completely readjusted my spine like a chiropractor and i felt so much better for the rest of our day at the park.

 

true story.
