P. 2017: Top Thrill Dragster RETIRED!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit out of the loop, but did they announce when the announcement will be?  Maybe they moved the webcam back because there's no secrets soon.

Personally I'm still hoping for a new tire-drive octuple launch.

Looks like construction work day starts at 7:30... I just clicked the web cam link for Top Thrill posted above. Good timing, because I saw about 20 trucks drive in toward Breakers all at once. A few of them drove toward Top Thrill and parked near the restrooms. I would imagine the others went toward the new construction site. It was pretty cool to see.

A new boat joke.

For the love of God, just, no. 🤬 The children of today should never be subjected to this "joke". Carry on.

So how about those howl-o-weekends? We didn't get to go this year (first year missed since 2012 or so). I feel like it's been on a pretty steady decline (either that or because I've done so many local haunts everywhere that it just doesn't do it for me anymore, or because it just doesn't change much from year to year house-wise), how were the new house (s?) this year?

Mediocre at best.  Bloodbath was entertaining enough, kind of a rehash of the old Club Blood theme with a little hotel mixed in at the end (which didn't quite make sense - wouldn't you start in the hotel?).  In Eerie Estate, I didn't notice anything new aside from the introduction room with the Ouija board.  Hexed was probably still the best one from an artistry standpoint.  Slaugherhouse and Cornstalkers were their normal tired selves.  Blood on the Bayou took longer to walk to it than it did to go through it.  Cut Throat Cove was pretty decent.  All were severely lacking in actors.  Kings Dominion had the best CF Haunt this year out of the four I went to, followed quite distantly by Kings Island, CP, and then Dorney.  That includes shows in the calculations, too.

I swear I'll get my TRs up from KI and CP's Haunts one of these days soon.

I was honestly very impressed, especially compared to last year's HalloWeekends. They had a great Opening Scary-monies show and the Midnight Syndicate show was great too. It was really fun to have a mascot for this year in Mr. Midnight. I felt that all the houses were better staffed than last year and the actors seemed very motivated and into their roles.

It looks like Wild Mouse foundation frame is down, and maybe even some track has been attached. I pulled up the webcam, saw it, came here to see if anyone had mentioned anything about it, went back and the cameras had all moved. So, no pic. 

I would not be surprised if the steel went up fast for this guy and had a full - circuit by January. Then, maybe electrical work gets completed in the early spring? Or, do you think they will just get everything done ASAP? Either way, it's always cool to see these rides get built... especially as we wait to hear about TTD 2.0.

Random question-- Ocean Motion? It's in a totally random spot by the front. It looks nice with the water and rock work. However, I never ride it because it's an after thought and out of the way. It would have been nice for CP to relocate it to the new boardwalk section. How many riders does it actually get in its current location?

It can get quite a line at the start of the day, being the first or second ride most people see.  For the non-coaster-enthusiast crowd, it's kind of a draw.  It always seems to have somewhat of a line whenever I pass by it.

What are the chances that we get the full details on the project on January 9th, 2023... The 20th anniversary of the original TTD announcement.

I couldn't imagine a better date to put the details out, since they seem to be following the "you can see it but you don't know" scheme that they did originally with TTD, even if it is a 2024 re-opening.


Kind of right. Cedar Point officially announces that revamped TTD is coming in 2024: https://www.cedarpoint.com/new-in-2024

Cedar Point has just announced the day for Coastermania. It's Friday June 2. This is the earliest post for this event ever. No other info other than the day.

Neat, though to be fair its always the first Friday in June. 

Sadly this is the first year in a while (excluding 2020) I wont be going. I think I'll be skipping CP actually, for the first time since....IDK 2016 (again forget that covid year) Much as the thought of a new wild mouse cred has me bursting w excitement....gunna take a break, and hey 2024 TTD reopens so :)
