Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

In closing, I do need to comment on the Melt pic...it really looks great! It looks like it will incorporate the "local" flavor just like the one that we visited in Mentor, Ohio outside of Cleveland, which is really cool - I LOVE the retro CP stuff!

Well what the heck, man... Why didn't you tell me you were in my neighborhood?

 

Well ya gotta let me know these things beforehand - c'mon!

Then you're probably familiar with the chicken and waffles melt? ;-)

Or the quirky bar decorations. I imagine the CP one will be a lot like this, but with hopefully more CP retro stuff on the walls!

I think I'll make it out to Cedar Point next Saturday.

 

With my touring-circumstance, and dependency on other people, it's kind of hard to tell for sure tho.

Two days ago the bolts holding back-axle sub frame snapped, which clamped the two back-tires together. We awoke from the smell of burning rubber. Our driver reacted superfast and got us off the freeway safely.

Yesterday, new bus... The tire blew up, again causing a 2-3 hour delay.

 

Things like this makes me anxious to order FastPass too far ahead of time.

Which leads me to my question... How far ahead of time do Fast Pass and Fast Pass + normally run out?

Or is it impossible to say for sure?

Can I just take a moment to say how much it blows my mind how RMC can figure out exactly where their track needs to go on an already existing structure?? There is definitely some CRAZY engineering going on behind the scenes that makes all this possible. In fact when I was watching RMC's raptor promo video on Vimeo recently, I spotted some really cool blueprints of Twisted Colossus that showed how RMC created their own diagram of the original structure that also showed their own centerline path going through it. Again it's insane to me how they figured all of this out. It cannot be easy to re-engineer a structure originally built to handle completely different load bearings.

 

As the pure roller coaster nerd that I am, I find this kind of stuff absolutely fascinating.

As someone who also stresses out about FP+ being sold out and other things like that, let me assure you that there is no reason whatsoever to buy FP or FP+ before you get there. We go over 4th of July every year for several days when it's absolutely packed and simply buy our wrist bands in the morning when we get in the park. Only twice have they sold out - but not until approx 1:00 PM, so you are for sure safe. CP has such crazy weather and your trip sounds like the bus ride from hell so don't spend the money until you 1) get there and 2) you know the park is open. Guarantee you'll be fine waiting until the day-of.

In other news, Sagebrush Sue's was on fire this morning (maybe 10:00 or 10:30am ish). It's probably, pretty badly damaged but the fire was contained to the structure. It waaaaas a soft-drink and food-stand. That part of the park was closed for a little while, and you could smell it had burnt all day when you were nearby. It was fun riding Maverick in the smoke. There were not many people in the back of the park yet so it went unnoticed by many folk and there wasn't much of a hubbub about it. Kudos to CP and their fire department for handling it in stride. Here's some pics I took:

LOL, I promise I had nothing to do with it. That's what I get for keeping the same handle I've had since a few decades ago!
