Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Not to be a Debbie Downer, just an FYI. I know you probably didn't take the footage personally, but whomever did shouldn't have done it. This was clearly taken from above the park, not just the perimeter. So unless the park released it...d1ff50c8bb400a673a40974192e22a63.jpg

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.

Yeah, it's one thing to take drone footage from over the lake (which I'm sure is still frowned upon by CP), but going like 15ft directly above the lift hill is very ballsy and illegal. Still, that is some stunning footage.

As much as it hurts to say it, it's wrong to take close-up footage of private property without permission, as beautiful as it may be.

 

Geez, I never thought something so wrong could feel so right...

Definitely not cool to break rules.

 

But did you see that footage!? It was beautiful. Looking straight at the first drop, head-on and straight down. And an excellent geometry lesson looking at the structure, especially in that complete vertical orientation.

 

It almost look like pro-shot B-footage the park would pay to have done. Maybe they did.

Try being gay and being raised in an overly religious family.

Story of my life...lol

Fortunately they've come around for the most part.

Now that I've posted it in Bert's and my TR, here's a neat ornament I found at the park's "Emporium" (it's along side the sky ride at the front - I think it's the Pagoda Gift Shop). Bert found them also available at the Hotel Breakers' Gift Shop, too. Other coasters in thin brass, as well as a few carousel horses, too. Pricey (mine cost me $22 plus tax), but I think it's a very nice unusual ornament to have for the Holly-Daze

In it's box.

^^We're the proud owners of that ornament along with the Gatekeeper one and a few others. Cedar Point has the best ornament selection of any regional park I've ever seen.

Oh DANG. That is a thing of beauty! I hope they have some stock left when I get there in August. My wife's only souvenir request from any amusement parks I visit without her is usually to bring back a Christmas ornament. Haven't found many that look as nice as that, though.

they had many in the Breaker's Gift Shop (on the way into the main lobby, over by the wall with the books), and where Bill found his was at the main gift shop on the right as you come in the front gates.

 

they did NOT have them at the Pagoda gift shop (that I saw).. Breakers and the main promenade gift shop were the only two places I saw these ornaments (and Breakers had the more choices. . several coasters, carousel horses, and, I think, the train)

^ Okay, they're not at Pagoda. But, the gift shop the ornament was in, was I guess closer to the main entry of the park. My mistake.

Somewhere there, is a gift shop that sells ornaments. (o;

^ I thought I did see it there, when we came off of Maverick the first time. But I later found it in that main gift shop on the "Midway."

But I did return for The T-shirt I wanted! Even though that was also available in other general gift shops, including Breakers Hotel GS.

But getting it at the coaster's gift shop itself, meant a bit more for the memory.

Whoever is designing the merchandise that CP has been dishing out recently has been doing a fabulous job. Where at some parks I visit I have trouble finding something I would even consider wearing, CP has me struggling to not buy everything.

I remember pointing out this particular shirt to you, and saying how much I liked it.

 

you went back on Monday to get it, right?

Any updates on Mean Streak RMC?

It did not burn down last night!

 

Yes...

The park has hired Sean Spicer to take all questions regarding mean streak 2.0. However, video recording of his responses is strictly prohibited.
