Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

^I see what you did there

The new Halloweekends Haunt website is live!

 

https://www.cedarpoint.com/halloweekends/haunt/

 

Eternity Infirmary, Eden Musee, and Fear-y Tales are going away while Deprivation: No Way Out, Fearyground Freakshow, and Harvest Fear will all be new. Another exciting addition is the return of Midnight Syndicate, which I'm thrilled about.

 

Something that has me scratching my head is that Harvest Fear is said to go in Frontier Town...but with Cut Throat Cove and Tombstone Terror-tory, I don't know where another scare zone could be placed. Plus CornStalkers and Screamworks already take up Frontier Trail soooo I have no clue where this new one's supposed to go.

 

It looks like it will be a great Haunt season filled with several exciting new attractions!

For some reason the Haunt link isn't working for me, so I can't tell which are supposed to be scare zones vs. mazes, but if Eden Museé is going away, maybe Harvest Fear is going in the building where that was? As long as it's still accessible with Mean Streak construction, which may be completed by Haunt, who knows.

 

We actually liked Eden Museé and thought it was one of the better Haunts, but I am not sad at all that Eternity Infirmary is going away.

It won't work for me either.

. They call the Express hotel "2-star Hotel in Sandusky area" but it shows that it has a 4 star rating on Tripadvisor.

That's because Trip Advisor bases their rating on user reviews, whereas Hotwire bases theirs on how many amenities are available (not necessarily how many are included in the room rate).

Went to the park this past Saturday , mainly to check out all of the shows.

I did a mini trip report(mostly focused on the live entertainment).

Is this cedarpoints version of the Mardi gras parade?

This is actually a real thing?

New stage in frontier town this year.

They have a bluegrass music show.

Looking good

The sun began to set....

The main midway has looked a lot better at night since they put in all the lighting a few years back.

Finally got the chance to see luminosity this year.

Is it me, or did they add more lighting in the frontier trail this year?

The smoke from the train, and next years new coaster.

Even though it's closed, they still light up mean streak.

Goodnight...

Wow. If you want a good deal on Cedar Point hotels, check out Hotwire. I just got Breakers for $92 out the door. You can get the Express hotel for $55 out the door. I'm looking at dates 8/13-8/14. You don't know the name of the hotel untill you book it but you can usually find out what hotel it is. For example, it shows you the TripAdvisor rating. It said 4.5 stars. There's no other hotel in Sandusky besides Breakers that has 4.5 on TripAdvisor. They call the Express hotel "2-star Hotel in Sandusky area" but it shows that it has a 4 star rating on Tripadvisor.

 

You must have gotten the last one cause I just checked and don't see the 4.5 star listed anymore.

Yep I got the last one. It said "Hurry only 1 room left!" I hopped on it.

Nice deal, I'll definitely keep an eye out in case they add some more, I'm planning a trip for around the same time.

Thanks everybody for the newer Motel 6 recommendation a few pages back. I booked a couple of days for later this month and seriously saved about $300 over the on-site resorts (even though I enjoy them, too). I used AAA to save a bit more, as well. I'd still stay with family/significant other at the resorts, but this trip is for more casual friends, fun, & to scratch my coaster itch. If ride lines end up being out the wazoo, I'll use the hotel savings on Fast Lane+ rather than worry about early entry & hustling around with a strategy before it gets busy. Thanks again!

Just another late shot of one the characters - nothing new to see here. Digger. Shoutout to eccentricgamercl on Insta for the picture.

 

 

"Armed and dangerous - approach on the right" Hmm..it'll be interesting to go back and see how these hints lined up once the ride is announced.

The last wanted villain(?) has been revealed today. Digger. Shoutout to eccentricgamercl on Insta for the picture.

 

 

"Armed and dangerous - approach on the right" Hmm..

 

This was the first one we saw like 3 weeks ago.

 

Fudge. My bad. Guess that was the first time I saw a photo clear enough to read the little text to go along with it. Sorry guys.

That's really cool! I'm definitely on board that these three characters represent "RMCMS2018's" three trains! Digger, Black Jack, and Wild One! I hope they each have unique themes on the trains - That would be so rad! I also love that this is keeping up with Maverick right next door!

 

That back corner (from Millennium Force to this thing) of the park may have the best coasters per square foot than any other place in the world!

You may also like the bathrooms next to first aid in frontier town.

 

are those the ones behind the stage? those were BUSY when we were there. . but it was during Brews & BBQ. . so that could be why.

 

Avoid the ones next to SkyHawk at all costs, those are dark and absolutely disgusting.

I actually did sorta tell it, but it seems it got deleted.

 

so apologies to Robb & Elissa, and the Mods, if it was over the line, didn't mean to cause any offense .. I just thought it was funny

 

(if that is why the comment got deleted).

Definitely think you're right about the whole 3 train theme idea.

 

To expand on that, I've had the wild idea for a while that those characters will be included in a "Shed" element. With the transfer table being in front of the station, unlike Mystic Timbers, they have the opportunity to really enclose it and tell a story before the ride, instead of after. My guess is that they would use the 3 characters inside as well as use them in the 'Battle for CP' app.

WARNING! He stands tall in the face of adversity, will beat the odds in any match. He can take on a full house and end ...???...

 

Anyone figure out that last line of text?

 

"WARNING! He stands tall in the face of adversity, will beat the odds in any match. He can take on a full house and end up Aces high!"

I'm starting to think maybe the trains could have different characteristics and that each trains give a different type of ride...

 

" BlackJack" Chamberlain"... " He can take on a full load"

Could mean it's a longer train with more seats?

 

Chess " Wild One"... " Whipsmart and defiant" " Highspeed chases" Could mean it's a train that rides wilder for whatever reason? Short and heavy?

 

Digger... " Fast and advanced..." Approach from the right? Separate stations for the trains?

" HIs arm is a force to be reckoned with"? Some quirky train detail that affects the way it rides?

 

I dunno... Just something that occurred to me...

^ I'm about 1900% certain that the ride will have three identical trains. The only differentiation will be the paint job.

I can only imagine the nightmare of having people want to ride train A over train B... Stations can be a cluster as it currently is
