Check out this amazing photo compliments of Dave Morgan!! 

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

Wasn't Viper removed to make room for El Toro?

 

Yeah but they built in and around Rolling Thunder

 

Anyway, Im always hoping for new coasters at the Point but Im pretty sure were not gonna see one in this particular clearing. I could maybe see some sort of flat ride or water ride, but as some have said its probably something for Halloween.

I highly doubt it is for halloween because Terror Island was easially put on Millennium Island last year with no clearing and it was not even near the clearing.

CP may have a tendency to rip out trees, but they only do it for a reason. The clearing will be for a new ride. Kinzel even confirmed that CP would be getting something new for 2009 about two months ago.

 

Since the cleared space isn't really big enough for a coaster, they could use the lagoon for space. Or take out Mine Ride (and/or Snake Rive Falls) as some are speculating . I'm hoping it won't have to come to taking those out though. I really would be sad to see Mine Ride leave.

Most recently in 1978 they removed Jumbo Jet and another Wildcat they had before their current model.

 

I think 30 years of not removing a coaster (and even then, relatively minor coasters compared to the sprawling CCMR) set a good enough precedent for most folks to know I didn't mean back in Cyclone's days.

When I was on MF I also just saw halloween stuff on the island but I wouldn't be sad to see CCMR go at all. I think CP is good with family rides/family coasters right now and CCMR isn't too popular either. I'd love to see a flying coaster take its place right on the lake.

 

I am not a big fan of CCMR either, I just do think that CP will want to tear it down. A coaster weaving between the turns of MF would be pretty good.

I am still sticking with a bigger version of Pilgrim's Plunge - it will be the world's tallest water ride in 2010 and would be billed as the replacement to White Water Landing.

 

In looking at PP with the elevator vertical lift, it would be perfect for that area and for CP. I do not think that they would have to remove CCMR in order to build something like this...

I agree that if CP got a bigger PP, I wouldn't really think of it as a shoot the chutes, but more of a flume, from what I've seen of PP. As for coaster wise, I always enjoyed CCMR, and I think CP needs to replace with some something like Everest, or just a bigger Vekoma Mine Train.

 

A good family coaster is what they need.

New for 2009?

2010

 

I wouldn't be suprised to see a new water ride there, and it is the perfect size for one.

 

It would be really cool if they could put in a splash battle there somehow. I know CP dosen't do much with theming, but I think this would be something they could easily pull off. It could be either western themed or Peanuts themed. These rides seem to do well at other parks, and CP needs a new true family ride, so this would be perfect.

I think CP is getting a new giant flume ride, but I actually don't want it and I go to the park at least once a week. The water rides are always walk-ons at Cedar Point and most people I know skip them and go to Soak City even though Soak City is pretty bad. And I don't think Cedar Point NEEDS a new water ride, they have two working ones which is around average for most parks. Also CCMR is going no where, with Six Flags Magic Mountain getting a new coaster, that would make them the undisputed coaster capital, and plus its the 40th anniversary for Mine Ride.

I have not been to Cedar Point myself... but is it just me, or does Raptor seem like it needs a minor update? The sign and the nets (that cover the walkways from loose articles) appear very outdated to me.

 

Also... what are people's thoughts on Wildcat? Haven't heard too much about it.

Don't see anything wrong with Raptor. Wildcat is Wildcat I guess lol. It's a small wild mouse coaster that gives a decent ride. I enjoy it but would never wait in line for it.

 

As far as the ride for next year, my sources keep hearing a water ride guys. I was hoping for a coaster but not in 2010. As far as being an Intamin flume, that I don't know yet however.

Wildcat is a fun little ride, not really worth the long wait that it gets but it is fun.

^The thing I don't understand about that though is why there is a gigantic plot of land cleared on Millennium Island. I was just at the park yesterday and I got a good view of the clearing from the top of MF. The area is pretty large and it appeared there was some kind of backhoe or something down there.

 

We also saw the mystery "track" from the top of the hill on Maverick and I'm not sure if it is track or not. It may just be something for the Halloween theming.

The 2010 rumored ride was appearently just flags marked from the local power company. There just changing something with there power routing. Here's the link:

They are making improvements to their power grid in that area, which could mean that something of decent size (that requires a lot of power) is being built near that area. Perhaps their current grid isn't sufficient enough to power whatever it is they have in store for that area.
