Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

To make use of both the MaxAir and Wicked Twister site would require a LOT of relocations - they're not that close together.  Ferris Wheel, Troika, Tiki Twirl, and Dodgem are all between the two.  Unless some/all of these are also headed out of the park, I'm not sure how much room you think they have to relocate these to.  I'd say Windseeker would be the better removal; it's right next to WT and basically never runs at this park anyway due to the constant wind coming off the lake.

...But I guess I could see it.  Remove the drive-'em cars at the north end of the park, put Tiki Twirl and Troika there.  Might as well tear down the Ballroom, since they removed the classic arcade I don't think it serves any value, and put Dodgem and the Ferris Wheel there.  While we're at it, let's just tear down the entire Frontier Trail area...who needs trees and a bunch of stupid culture with lame shops no one cares about? /sarcasm

Seriously, I'm all in favor of the idea of a beach bar/restaurant.

I don't want them to remove any history, but every ride in it's current location has been moved from another location after Wicked Twister was built. I have no clue what they're going to do, but I do see the ferris wheel being relocated freeing up a ton of potential space. I don't really see the dodgem moving, but who knows, Cedar Point has a way of relocating rides around that park that I've never seen before from another park.

I don't see them touching the frontier trail, I think the park is self aware enough to realize it's a necessity to have these calm and shaded areas. The area around Wicked Twister as it is, is not one of these areas as it's essentially surrounded by Gatekeeper anyways and concrete paths.

I'm all for a nice proper beach restaurant though! I also wouldn't mind a launch coaster of some sort around that area. Time will tell what happens, Cedar Point has always been one of those parks I'd swear one thing would happen (like demolishing Mean Streak) and then the thing gets the craziest RMC makeover I could of ever imagined. Cedar Point is interesting because it's the only park that I've been to that every employee, visitor, etc is a self proclaimed "Coaster Enthusiast", and I hear everyone complaining about the "GP" obnoxiously by every other person in line... and they don't see the irony which is quite funny if you ask me. It's kind of turned into this weird atmosphere that I haven't experienced anywhere else. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing honestly, but the point is the park knows it's audience well.

^ Little off-topic but I just noticed your avatar picture. I always forget that there used to be a Chaos ride at Cedar Point. I always seem to just miss those rides. The only one in the UK I skipped over for another park and the one at CP was gone by the time I visited.

Wait I am confused, MaxAir opened many years ago and I was there. The ride is solid, high capacity, and everything Six Flags wished they were getting with the Zamperla models. Am I missing something other than people thinking it is prime real estate? If MaxAir is ready to go then lolololol all those Zamperlas will be gone like disposable cameras.

People are probably just assuming it’s leaving because of its absolutely awful maintenance issues.

Also It seems like not many new Huss rides get built but a few disappearing over past few years.  Lots of enterprises and top spins have disappeared. Only recent ride that comes to mind is the floorless top spin for Sea World Australia

So, reading back through the last 15 pages or so of this thread, I realized that I never posted up the absolute F-ton of pictures I took of "The Boat," as I like to call Snake River Expeditions, from my trip to CP back in May. The first two dozen or so are from the queue, and the rest are from the ride itself. Enjoy!

Glad to see the love for Snake River Expedition. It's really well done, and really unique from anything else at Cedar Point. And it has an IMAScore soundtrack, so how can you go wrong?

Make it quiet enough that you can't actually hear it anywhere on the attraction or in the line? I definitely didn't hear anything besides the standard Cedar Point music (and Millennium Force).

This is also an issue at KI. Crank the volume up around Orion/in the station along with Mystic!

Anyone know anything about millennium force being closed?  Going in a couple days and have seen it listed as closed on queue tracking websites.

I believe somebody posted in the TPR Facebook group about it, saying there is an issue with the lift motor and/or cable. Hopefully it's up soon. Cedar Point is very diligent about fixing their rides ASAP but you also never know with rides like Millennium and Dragster.

All of their parks are doing free FL but Cedar Point and Knott's (and some with BAF).  Some have more restrictions that others.  Seems intentional to me.

There are enough FL holders at CP as it is. The world doesn't need more. Step up and pay the price or wait in the 2 hour lines like the plebians you are.

I agree. Giving away free Fast Lanes seems like a bad deal for everyone - for the guests who didn’t buy it that day AND the guests who did spring for it that day, because you know most of the free ones are going to be used those horrendous Saturdays in October when I don’t know why anyone in their right mind would ever want to be there in the first place.

Thought this was interesting. 

2 days ago they launched season pass sales with Cedar Point season FL at $775. They bumped it to $850 today.  $25 more to add all parks if you got that plat pass.

In the past, the free FL+ for the fall season was only valid on Fridays and Sundays.  Not sure if that is still the case.  With all of the weird decisions they have made lately, I wouldn't be surprised if they were valid on Saturdays.

I was at the park Mon-Thurs. Monday and Tuesday I was able to get in the park at opening, buy FL+ for FL price with my platinum pass.

Wednesday morning upon entry FL+ was already sold out. Thursday morning FL+ already sold out, so they sold out the night before or they weren't allowing you to upgrade in park.

Wednesday and Thursday were less crowded than Mon/Tues, and there was also the threat of storms, and Millennium/Dragster were down Wed/Thurs so I'm thinking they really cut the amount of passes down? Not sure.

Long story short if you want FL+ for your visit, get it while it's available. I had a great time with FL+ racking up 11 rides on Dragster on Tuesday alone!

I'm sorry, ELEVEN?! Did I read that right? How is that even possible. Between the weather and constant breakdowns, most people get excited for one single ride! lol

I will be at the park in two weeks, for the first time in 4 years. I am keeping my fingers crossed for tolerable weather and minimal ride closures. It will be the end of August but I am still expecting very heavy crowds. Will be there most of the day Saturday, all day Sunday, and half day Monday. Secured FL+ for Saturday and Sunday and I'll get the early entry for staying on site. Super excited, and I'm hoping that having 2.5 days at the park will allow some flexibility if there is bad weather to still ride everything. I'd be stoked to get 11 rides on Dragster!

^^I honestly really appreciate this advice because we're going the last week of the month also and I didn't know they limited the number of FL+ now. I've always taken a wait-and-see approach since they used to be unlimited (or seemingly unlimited, I've never been unable to purchase in-park before 2020 when they weren't an option). Now we're definitely going to get them in advance.

Question- usually in-park, there's a discount for Platinum passholders where you pay for FL and get a free upgrade to FL+ and this doesn't seem to be an option anywhere online. Is this still a thing? I might just try and give guest services a call and see if they can do it by phone or something like that.

Also, I clicked that CP webcam link posted (thanks Bert!) and watched for a few minutes and Millennium Force doesn't seem to be running. Does anybody know what's going on with it?
