Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

They had gotten into this groove (or rut) of opening major rides on even years and minor ones on odd years i.e.: MANTIS '96, Chaos '97, POWER TOWER '98, Camp Snoopy '99, M-FORCE '00, etc. At some point they did a double coaster year when they added WT- in my opinion they copied the wrong ride from GL! So they are now on major odds and minor evens- though if you are a kid- Camp Snoopy was a major addition and they got Woodstock Express out of it which is a nice coaster to transition from JG to say Wild Cat or Iron Drag.

 

Going just on this predictable track record I would definately say that it won't be much and they even said anything yet whereas when I worked there in '99 much work was being done on Millie before HE opened (ships get to be girls- coasters can be boys).

I rode Maverick a few days ago, and it was freaking awesome! My very first ride my train rolled back in the tunnel. They let us re-ride, and it was a pretty cool experience.

 

Anyways, the ride was amazing. The airtime kicked Millennium forces ass! It was probably my favorite ride at the the park, besides Raptor, which I didn't get a chance to ride.

I didn't have any huge expectations of Maverick and I pleasantly surprised, I really enjoyed Maverick. Some people found the different elements rolled together a bit random but I liked it, it was like having the best bits of a lot of coasters rolled into one ride.

 

The first drop was great, especially at the back, I wish the drop could have been bigger though, and the brake after the second launch was a bit of a shame.

For what it is worth, Kinzel etc, at Coastermania, pretty much confirmed that a new coaster would not be built this year to open in 2008.

 

Besides, No Streak has not caught on fire yet and I am hoping that land is where a good coaster, one day, will be built.

 

So I am guessing that this year will be a flat ride, but 1/4 inch higher, 1/4MPH faster, or 1/2 more revolutions than something somewhere else.

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

 

Summary of post: anything is possible.

Man I hope that you dissing the coaster and not my handle there for although I happen to be flaming at times I don't plan on catching fire anytime soon and besides the land under me is too small for a coaster anyways.

This is Cedar Point we're talking about. It'd be 50 feet taller but 35% slower, and with a cycle time under 20 seconds.

 

...and yet, Six Flags Great America sits new-coaster-less

It's still August. Relax.

I bet they're gonna use that as distraction so they can improve everything BUT the coasters. Like their waterpark. Update it. PLEASE. New paint jobs, more theming, more slides, a lazy river like NJ's Hurricane Harbor where you can swim in it or tube in it. (Yes, its true)

Also, start spiffing up the park.

 

Or, it could be the Giant Umbrella.
