Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

p. 2030 - Top Thrill 2 announced!

Recommended Posts

I think one thing that a lot of "should have gone with Intamin" takes are missing is... Cedar Fair owns another Intamin accelerator coaster that's been a huge pain in recent years.

In March 2022, Xcelerator at Knott's went SNBO for the 2nd time in only 5 years.   The first closure lasted 8 months, the second closure would last almost 2 years.  So while CP was planning for a Dragster renovation during the 2022 season, it's sister coaster was facing even more long term downtime while waiting for the manufacturer service department.  That, plus all the other issues with Dragster, had to have influenced the choice to find another supplier.

They were testing TT2 for several hours last night. Even had water dummies on one of the trains. Might be opening sometime real soon.

I did read that the Cedar Point president (or some other very high up if I am remembering exactly who wrong) did say recently on a radio show that this would not be an all summer issue, but I am still surprised to see any movement this quickly from how it sounded.

That was Tony Clark and testing was seen one night also. Been pretty silent since and also saw that the testing might of just been on one car to see how the new parts hold up. might hear more this week.

Video played just fine for me. Someone's getting a chewing out and/or potentially fired after that. That's all they would have needed was for someone else to get injured at the park. Plus is one of the camels had gotten hurt PETA would be all up their ass.

Well PETA is going after them anyway. Not so much the park itself but the company that provides the animals and, I think, the staff for the petting/animal areas. Demanding an investigation and that the state do extra inspections, etc, etc. And then apparently goats got loose a few days later.
