Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Got a message from Cedar Point via myspace and they sent along the following image with the topic: New for 2008. Looks like they've already started digging for a new ride/attraction for next season. Not much to look at just yet but this is certain to develop.

 

That looks like the greenery around Paddlewheel Excursions and near Mantis.

 

Makes sense, as that's the least developed remaining land.

I saw the Paddlewheel Excursions go by a few times, but never saw the entrance to it, it looked like it would provide some awesome photo opportunities. Yay for 2008 construction!

EDIT:

 

Here's what the blog says:

 

 

"While walking through the “backstage” area of the park, we noticed something that we remember seeing one time before…

 

 

 

Could this be the start of something good?

 

Alas, no mysterious blueprints found."

I don't know or care what it will be, but I can guarantee we will have 100 pages of useless, mind numbing predictions. That will be followed by 100 pages of people saying that this new ride will be the greatest thing ever, second only to the wheel or fire. That will then be followed by another 50 page thread whining about when it will open and more whining if it doesn't open on time. All this will be done while said posters shine up their CP fanboy kneepads to show their appreciation.

If anything, flat ride or family area.

 

Then again, I just wish CP would kind of update their water park. It looked so old (and I barely saw people in there, too). Also, I think the park needs a new family area since the three they already have seem out of date (do kids these days know who Snoopy is?).

 

Just a thought though.

Yes we MUST remove all trees! Trees are bad- blacktop and trashcans are good!

 

And ^They aired Snoopy cartoons on the Disney Channel up until a few years ago- which is odd because they rarely if ever any more show old Disney cartoons.

My ideas...

 

New Flat Ride

----------------

Plausible - Though I see them going more in a family approach.

 

Kiddie Ride

--------------

Plausible - They need a few more "kids" attractions there.

 

Wild Mouse

-------------

Plausible yet highly unorthodox for CP

 

Family Play Center

----------------------

Plausible

IMO, CF needs to move all the crap from Soak City over to Geauga Lake. Then they have more space at CP to build 900 foot coasters.

 

I will be holding you personally responsible if they take out Camp Snoopy. I will also more than likely loose control and maul you.

All right... I lied.

 

If it's a Mack Wild Mouse, CP would then proceed to add an inch to the height in order to over-overmarket it as "the best ever and only spinning coaster at this park".

 

This might keep the fanboy masses happy... I mean, there hasn't been a new coaster opened since, like, 3 months ago.

 

I say add one of those insane self-powered boats for a little while and see how long it takes for some morbosity to sue for "making me do all the work".

 

// They should include Soak City with your Breakers stay to make a small step towards justifying the room rate.

It very well could be a smaller coaster, like a wild mouse or whatever, because CP built WT in 2002, then TTD in 2003, so they have built coaster in back to back years before. I am still sticking to it being a topple tower, though, or possibly some kind of water ride. But if the topple tower has fountains and gets the riders wet, they can 'kill two birds with one stone'.

I know what they are getting. A friend of a friend of a friend whose Cousin works at a Lemon Chill stand in Challenge Park told me. It's a giant hole. It's purpose to keep the fanboys guessing what CP is up to since it has been a whopping 6 months since any construction whatsoever has been done at the park.
