Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

That happened Sunday night and the ride had been closed ever since.

 

A little birdy told me Corkscrew is open now

 

You mean me on the last page?

 

... I'm confused

 

Edit: Whoops, didn't even notice the double post. My bad.

 

So what's the story behind Corkscrew and this collision? I assume the trains were empty since its not all over the place?

 

Yeah, evidently both trains were empty because they were trying to transfer the white train off of the track. They sent the red one around and it never stopped and bumped the white train. I don't know much about transferring trains on an old Arrow but a lot of the ride ops (on another message board which is generally a cesspool but a few of those guys know what they're talking about) are saying that when you do that you need to set or release the safety brakes manually and evidently someone f*cked up and didn't do that. That happened Sunday night and the ride had been closed ever since.

Dang, I'm glad there was no one on the ride when this happened or we would have a much bigger problem!

I'm stunned that SVen has not been pegged as the quickest way to type out the name of this beast! I can picture them loading up the first train full of dudes named Sven.

 

No thank you...

How about we abbreviate it as "SteVen"?

 

I for one cannot wait to ride SteVen!

 

Cedar Point will advertise how SteVen is great for group fun!

 

The GP will say SteVen was really intense and threw me around A LOT!

 

Just watch out! If you are too big SteVen won't let you ride.

From what I understand the theming for Steel Vengeance is that there is a conflict between Maverick and the new ride. Is it just me or does first inversion that turns into a half stall remind anyone else of the twisted horseshoe element on Maverick?
