Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

The fact that Steel Vengeance reopened the same day (with 1 train) after a bump should show this isn't a season long closure unless officially announced by the park.

 

This.

 

Didn't Steel Vengeance chuck a drive tire at one point last year and reopen later in the day?

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

OK these are freaking cool. https://cedarpointonlineshop.com/

Made it out to Cedar Point this past weekend, October 17th-18th with my mom and dad to visit my sister working at the park. My sister works at Dorney, but since they closed early, a bunch of full time

To me, the only thing that would keep Valravn down for any extended period of time would be if the loading platform was damaged and they had to replace it. I can't imagine they just have replacements laying around for that and I also imagine that's something they can order and have it done quickly.

Boring update time:

Cedar Point to purchase Sawmill?

 

If you're not familiar, it's a resort a few miles east of the Park on Rt. 6, with a golf course and lake access. It's a pretty large chunk of property. Like a lot of things in the area, it's best days are behind it and needs a pretty significant amount of renovations.

I don't care about anything named Sawmill if it doesn't have anything to do with CP building a log flume.

Rumor has it that they only bought this place so they have the rights for the name "Sawmill" which will be the name of the 2020 Aquatrax coaster for their anniversary. The resort refused to allow them to use the name, so they played monopoly and bought the whole shithole just to show who has the bigger balls.

Cedar Fair Acquires Sawmill Creek Resort Located Within Minutes of Its Flagship Amusement Park Cedar Point

Business Wire•July 3, 2019

 

SANDUSKY, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

 

Cedar Fair Entertainment Company (FUN), a leader in regional amusement parks, water parks and immersive entertainment, today announced it has acquired Sawmill Creek Resort located in Huron, Ohio. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

 

Commenting on the acquisition, Cedar Fair President and CEO Richard Zimmermann said, “We are excited about the opportunity to add Sawmill Creek to our growing portfolio of resort properties serving Cedar Point, Cedar Point Shores Waterpark and the Cedar Point Sports Center, which is currently being expanded to include an indoor sports facility. Along with Hotel Breakers, Cedar Point’s Express Hotel, Castaway Bay Indoor Waterpark Resort and Lighthouse Point, Sawmill Creek’s 236-room resort lodge strengthens both Cedar Point’s and the Sandusky area’s appeal as a unique and adventurous vacation destination.”

 

Zimmerman added that Cedar Fair plans to make the necessary investment in Sawmill Creek to upgrade and modernize its guest rooms, resort facilities and infrastructure. Improvements are projected to be completed over the next two years.

 

Sawmill Creek spans a total of 235 acres, including 28 acres of premium Lake Erie waterfront with a marina, a half-mile beach and 50 acres of undeveloped land. Amenities at the resort include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, three restaurants, a conference center, an 18-hole, Tom Fazio-designed golf course and club, and The Shops at Sawmill Creek. In addition to golf and swimming, guests can choose from a variety of on and off-premise activities ranging from watersport rentals and fishing charters, to a sunset cruise on the legendary Sawmill Explorer.

 

Cedar Fair had previously announced the development of new hotels adjacent to two of its other amusement parks including a SpringHill Suites by Marriott at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina, and a Hyatt-branded hotel on the site of its Canada's Wonderland amusement park near Toronto in Vaughan, Ontario. With the addition of the 236 guestrooms at Sawmill Creek Resort, Cedar Fair will operate more than 2,300 hotel rooms companywide.

 

Squire Patton Boggs served as legal advisor to Cedar Fair on the transaction, while Sawmill Creek Resort was represented by MelCap Partners, LLC.

I think that was Ouimet's pet project. Think about it...the two (I stand corrected again) that were installed were in 2014 and 2015, and we haven't seen any dark rides since, and he isn't with CF anymore.

But you know what, go on believing that the Point is getting some super-elaborate dark ride for 2020. I'm done trying to explain why its an unlikely outcome. Keep the dream alive.

 

 

Matt Quimet is still with Cedar Fair...

He is the Executive Chairman Of The Board.

Well, Valravn’s downtime chart has finally hit all-red. Interesting sight to see. Anyone been hearing anything about what’s taking so long to get things running again? I know for a fact it didn’t take nearly this long to get SV back open after the bump.

I'm assuming it's because the dropped floors were raised and were damaged, according to reports. Those would take longer to replace than just removing a train on SV. Just a guess.

Nothing to do with coasters....Water, water everywhere on the outskirts of the park. Much worse than when I was here last month. Even part of the ADA section of the main lot has some water.

 

Side note....Caught part of a rehearsal for the band that plays for Cedar Point Nights on the stage by Windseeker today. I think they sound even better than last year.

Famous Dave's is apparently open again for now after closing for high water... no wait for a table but you're going to have to earn it.

Oh it’s totally under now? When I was there a few weeks ago the walkways weren’t under yet. Only the parking lot was. Dang this rain this year has been insane!

Things were a little more normal around the park today. The train was back running (it was down Sunday due to water) and the beach at Breakers was at least partially accessible. Still lots of water around parking lots for some of the employee housing. Valravyn was doing more testing this morning but still not open.

apparently Famous Dave's was open even in the flood waters. I wonder how many Health violations were broken here?

not sure how true it is, but some people are saying that they were having guests taking their shoes off as entering the restaurant.

Not sure who took this picture, as it's been shared on social media all over the place.
