Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm going to go ahead and say it: My prediction for CP's 2020 coaster is a 200+ foot RMC Raptor or T-Rex. So screenshot this if you want and see if I get it right.

 

Can we get through the 2018 season first?

 

Thanks.

Got into town about 8:20 and spent about an 1:35 minutes in the park. I got 5 rides in. I rode Gatekepper first. Felt like it had a bit of a rattle. Only had to wait one train. Faster than X Flight but I think the near miss was better on x flight. Need to give it a few more rides. Next was Wicked Twister which I got on right away. After that I looked at the app and noticed dragster was closed but looked up and they were testing. I jumped in line and after 15 minutes I rode it. Pretty good ride. Then I went to Valravn. Rode it twice before closing. Once in the third row and once in the front. Best thing about that ride is the 270 degree third inversion. And I will say they get the trains out fast on that ride and gatekepper. Dragster was quick as well. I thought the employees were doing well. App was completely off in terms of the times it took to get on the ride. Will be at the park for the next 3 days and will be at the park for early entry for Steel Vengeance. I think I lucked out today since some rain in the area reduced the crowds I am sure.

Is Cedar Point ever dead this time of year during the week, where for the first 2-3 hours you could pretty much walk on to most rides and 10-15 minute waits at most for the most popular/low capacity rides? Excluding SV of course. Or is this park so popular that it's pretty much always going to have lines even midweek mid-late may?

^ This week, and next week Monday- Thursday should be pretty dead. I was there during the week last week and everything except SV was a complete walk on unless you wanted to wait for the front row's.

My new favorite pastime is putting live stream camera 1 and camera 2 on each of my two monitors just before weekend early entry opens to watch people get their morning exercise as they try to sprint to SV. I especially like the ones the slow to a walk and then sprint several times before they get off camera 1. (FWIW that would be me if I attempted it).

Steel Vengeance is a really good coaster, but pretty tough on the thighs when you're over 6ft tall. The layout, the area it sits in and everything about it is visually stunning.

 

Magnum XL was my favourite coaster at Cedar Point, that probably makes me crazy right?

^ Not at all - everyone can't like the same thing, otherwise the world would be a dull place!

 

Even though I only got one ride on SV, I didn't notice any thigh pain or bruises. I did however, get a bruise on the thigh from riding Outlaw Run about 7-8 times during our visit to SDC.

 

And that isn't a complaint by any means...I just kept re-riding it because it was awesome and there was no line at all!

That does't make you crazy... What makes you crazy is the fact that you spelled Favorite with a "U."

 

Jokes aside, I visited the park for the first time this season today, and it was pretty awesome. Got on just about everything including Steel Vengeance (which was sick), and met some cool people on the rides! In addition, I got the chance to ride WindSeeker for the first time ever (I always skip it) and I have to say, I enjoyed that much more than most rides in the park!!! I could lap that over and over again. ERT on windseeker? Yes please!

 

Anyway I could see the construction sight below, and although not much was going on, there were pipes being laid in the configuration I artfully drew below. I think it's for a stage, considering there is also a new show called "Fire and Ice" next the beach, and the H12 block apparently has a "Lakeside Stage."

^ You're missing the stars in Starry Nights there, guy!

 

Kidding aside, that would be cool if they build a nicer looking stage than it's predecessor and add another show. Now that Michael can't do coasters & most rides, we look forward to shows more than ever.

 

Fire and Ice sounds like an interesting show to have near the beach. I'll be anxious to see this come to fruition!

Thanks for catching that! I think it's fixed now...

I agree, should be interesting to see what they come up with! The map says it starts early July, so we'll know soon enough.

I'm OK with the 'u', but I am from a British colony.

 

I have a love-hate relationship with Magnum XL. Some visits I think it's a great coaster and other visits I wonder about some of the design decisions....but being a design engineer I always wonder about design decisions.

 

My only complaint from my one SV ride so far is I was out of my seat so much my shirt rode up. Another loop at the people waiting at the station may have got an eye full of my boobs. Oh, and my cheeks hurt from so much happiness.

Well, I guess we can't all win the spelling bee.

^ Good idea

 

Once while riding Raging Bull at Great America, someone in my row actually had their shirt fly up, luckily it didn't leave the train, but it covered the guy's face the whole ride, it was hilarious to watch! His face was covered even in the on ride photo. I'd imagine something similar would happen on SV.

Not at all, I totally approve of this statement. Both the correct spelling of favourite and the love for Magnum, which is usually underrated. It's my second favourite there after Millennium Force. Nothing like a super tall, super fast coaster with plenty of big drops.

note to self.. wear a onesie to ride SV

 

I never thought of that option. I was just going to tuck my tee-shirt in.

 

That's ridiculous.

 

Steel Vengeance is taking clothes off people?! Reminds me of Top Thrill Dragster. Solid mammaries of that ride.
