Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Nice review, but sorry to hear another bad review of Blue Streak. I had a great front row ride on it last year.

 

As far as the name Steel Vengeance, throw me in the camp that would prefer just Vengeance.

 

If they do decide to go with Steel Vengeance, they at least will need to give some props and play some Judas Priest in the queue because this is a mix between their albums: 'Screaming For Vengeance' & 'British Steel'.

^^ Great review! Glad to see someone who shares my love for MF. (Although I may not quite agree about Fury...) I also had the same reaction to Maverick this year. This was my third year in a row visiting CP and my fourth time ever since Maverick was built. The last two years it blew me away with the new restraints. But this year, it just didn't get me like it has in years past and I'm not sure why. I think it's running as great as always, I just didn't like it quite as much for some reason.

 

Thanks!

 

I think Fury & i305 (also Leviathan) are awesome, as well. I know that ranking the giga coasters always seems to fire people up, so I'm certainly hamming it up a bit . I've read some reviews charging that Millennium Force doesn't quite do enough, but I think the relative simplicity of the layout helps to make it such a re-rideable hands-up coaster for me. I also like that it has no trims. The relative freedom and overall ride experience in a lapbar-only Intamin mega coaster is another thing that it has going for it over the other gigas. I wish more mega/giga coasters had been built around 2000 when Intamin was going with those T lapbars.

 

And yeah, I'm not sure what didn't wow me this time with Maverick; it still checks all the boxes and is a great ride. With coasters, some days there's just just a little bit of extra magic that surprises you or elevates a ride in your mind, but I didn't quite get one of those rides this time around.

One more thing I want to add from viewing the new Mean Streak video is that the second inversion (the Stengel dive-looking element) stood out to me as seeming much weirder and intriguing in the animation than I thought it'd be. It's somewhere between Maverick's Stengel dive, an RMC stall, and Wicked Cyclone's first flip rolled into one. The quick directional change into it should be snappy, but the cutback part actually hangs there in this graceful upside-down moment before it dives out of the element. It's very cool.

I don't actually "dislike" the name "Steel Vengeance", though it wouldn't be my first choice either. It's ok though, and fits the whole recurrent naming of RMC rides to some sort of "Steel" or "Iron" name. Personally, if they were going to go with "Vengeance", I would have preferred "Frontier Vengeance" to "Steel Vengeance" (Or how about "Cedar Creek Vengeance"? )! At the end of the day though, a name is a name, and this coaster is going to kick absolute butt, and I can't wait to ride it Opening Day, and all through the year next year!!!

No mazes on Sundays anymore? I know they never did the scarezones but it was the best time to go for the haunts with little to no lines... -- hopefully the haunt schedule just needs to be updated, or because everything isn't open they aren't considering it a haunt day but the mazes will still be open? Can anyone who works at Cedar Point clarify?

 

Stop quoting yourself. Stop quoting yourself.

 

They took down the website shortly after putting it up and me taking that screenshot, but I'm 100% sure they are fixing this and they will have Sunday haunts after all. Mainly because if you go to buy a fright lane you can purchase it for super cheap on Sundays (like previous years) because there is nobody there

So before it gets buried in all of this prediction stuff, does anyone know what's up with Raptor and Corkscrew?

 

Apparently they haven't operated since Sunday. If it were Dragster this wouldn't really be noteworthy but for Raptor and Corkscrew it's really weird.

It was running most of the day Sunday, towards the end of the night it was down. I have no idea why.

I'm only going to say this once...

 

We will be posting the announcement tomorrow as soon as the materials are available to us.

 

PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY LINKS OR IMAGES TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT BEFORE TPR DOES!

 

Anyone who does this will be banned forever from Theme Park Review.

 

Let me explain...

 

Posting the new ride information before we can do it actually creates MORE WORK for us as most of the time people who come on our forum and post info about a new ride will do a crappy job of it and then we have to not only do the work we are going to do to make a proper post about the new ride, but also clean up the garbage posts that people make.

 

No one here will get any extra points or look any "cooler" for being "first" to post the information. We aren't about being first we are about having good quality content. Please respect that. Thank you.

Counting down the hours to tomorrow. I'll be there for the announcement.

I'm now seeing from multiple sources that Corkscrew's trains had a collision on the transfer track on Sunday night when they were attempting to transfer a train off. Both trains were empty, but that seems to explain the long closure. Can anyone confirm this?

I'll just keep patiently smashing my refresh button tomorrow awaiting the announcement!

I would check the official Cedar Point site and socials first. It will take us a little time to post the info properly once it's released. And like I said, we aren't in a race to get it up first, we just want a good post that will give everyone here the information in one easily place to read it.
