Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

The Watermark he's talking about is on the previous page of this thread. I understand protecting your work idk just seems like a bit much. There's a watermark on the bottom and a watermark down the center of the photo as well.

Check out this amazing photo compliments of Dave Morgan!! 

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

Hah, oh I see it now. Yeah, that's a bit too in-your-face for my liking.

IMO watermarks like that are not about "protecting your image" it's about "insecurity." Meaning someone just HAS to show to the world that they have the "first' picture of something and they want to make DAMN SURE everyone knows who it is. I personally laugh my ass off at stupid crap like that.

 

Congratulations, you were the first person with a picture of a "sign." If your overall content is good, people will know where it came from or link to it. And you can always use a small tiny watermark that doesn't distract from the actual image. That just looks like pure crap to me.

Don't look now, but Cedar Point might have all of their coasters open for opening day for the first time in probably half a decade. It's Ohio State day and they've all operated at some point with the exception of Dragster which is apparently testing but closed for commissioning.

A pre-season blog post from Tony has this nugget:

Ride wait time reporting is improved. We didn't talk about it much over the winter, but behind the scenes, we've been working on improving how our ride wait times are reported to you through our FREE mobile app. Without getting into detail, this season, they should be more reliable and accurate, all thanks to your feedback from last season.

SV went down after only a couple cycles and hasn't opened since. So we'll see lol

Rides will break constantly at the beginning of the season but at least the rides are all ready to operate this year (assuming they certify Dragster today).

 

Plus it might reopen... it’s Cedar Point.

You got that right lol. God I love this park.

^ Excellent! Who needs Steel Vengeance?

 

So Steel Vengeance got stuck on the midcourse on a cold day, they evaced it, sent it back empty and it’s still closed like 8 hours later? Out of curiosity did anyone happen to notice how many trains were in the station / transfer area later in the day? Asking for a friend.

From what I could tell there was a train in the hold area under the transfer shed, one in the station, and I assume the third was right behind. Before this happened I saw it testing with 3 trains.

 

Oh and Dragster is about to open for the day at 8:30. God bless this park.

You know what happens when you assume

 

I could be wrong but I definitely have a theory based on some stories I’ve heard about dropping empties from the middourse on cold days.

 

I’m sure they block checked it but they probably block checked it with water dummies.

I saw two posts on other sites saying Steel Vengeance valleyed when they resumed testing.

I couldn't tell one way or the other. They had the path closed off at the train tracks. I guess I'll find out pretty soon this morning.

It’s likely going to be open today if that’s all it was... though assuming the train that valleyed was the empty train that left the midcourse from a stop (probably) they also need to make sure that doesn’t happen again which probably isn’t possible if the middourse is a functional block.

 

What’s involved in doing that I really don’t know, and anyone who does won’t post about it anyway.

 

I’m also speculating pretty hard right now (though this ride has had this problem since day one so I’m not really going out on a limb either).

In case anyone is curious what the food options are at Hugo's, Here you go....

I guess basic Italian food is unique to Ohio?

Wow Hugo's looks pretty good. I am cautiously optimistic that CP has finally turned the corner on their horrendous food. Now that I've said that, I'll probably be proven so wrong, but I think I'm going to add the meal plan to my season pass. I'm not expecting the full Knoebels treatment but hopefully we will have stuff that is edible, since for years all I had any interest in was the hot dog on a stick and fresh cut fries.
