Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I didn't know Kings Dominion also announced the 16th as announcement day?

 

A Kings Dominion fan site administrator has confirmed it will be 8/16, but no official word on social media/media announcements yet from KD.

 

Also, considering that the 3 other Cedar Fair parks getting coasters next year are announcing on August 16, I don't see why Kings Dominion would be any different.

 

That day can't come soon enough.

Yes, but if you look at all of the information it's pretty obvious the announcement for the RMC conversion to Race For Your Life Ishmael will be announced for Kings Dominion on 08/16.

On Friday I was at the park and got to check out Mean Streak 2.0 progress, it's really coming along! It's been almost a month since I was last at the park and the lift hill is looking amazing. I can't wait to see it completed, it will stand out so much in the back of the park and look incredible from the midway. There's also ledgers being constructed for the 3rd and final lap of the ride layout. They're pretty low to the ground where the former queue entrance was so I'll be curious to find out where the new entrance will be, hopefully it still involves going underneath the structure like before.

 

August 16th (and the 2018 season) can't get here soon enough! I wrote up a full trip report with pictures from my trip, but here are a few Mean Streak pics.

Considering most coasters CP has added have been added mostly in the spirit of adding something visually impressive/record breaking I imagine a huge RMC can easily squeeze into the parks top 2 coasters

I have ridden one RMC before (twisted colossus), so if this is ANYTHING close to that it will probably be my new #1 and would probably beat out maverick (like TC did)

Some guy on the Coasterforce forum suggested that it seems like with all these teasers it's setting up for some type of shootout. I like where his head is at and I was thinking a name like "Gunslinger" would be an awesome name for the RMC Mean Streak. Just thinking that would be a very cool theme to a ride

Wait a second, what?

 

People in a community for chicken are discussing CP's 2018 roller coaster theme??

 

EDIT: I must've missed the latest word filter, but that gave me a good laugh! Thanks to whoever made that!

HAHAHA if you type out "Coaster" and "Force" as one word, It automatically changes it to Bojangle's when you submit your post... I'm assuming the owner of this site changed it as he dislikes the Coasterforce?!?! HAHAHA Didn't know there was a war between the two websites. Anyway, getting back on topic.

 

Gunslinger! Each of the 3 trains are a different gunslingin' character as their trains race through the wild west, "the RMC Mean Streak," in search of the stolen mega pot in the poker tournament that took place! I think I just copied the plot of the movie, Maverick, but still... It would be cool!
