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?

Could it be track???

I spy with my little eye... a staircase.

Speculate away...

 

Those have been there for a while. Someone posted pictures of them a few months ago. I forget exactly whet they are, but it's nothing to "speculate" about.

While I think it is un-realistic for the park to get something big, I think they will. Would they really hint at a GCI or aquatrax and then get a spinning coaster? I think it'll be something that hasn't been mentioned yet, and a decent sized coaster.

Well, what do you mean by "big"? At the moment, I just can't imagine how they could build a proper "world's biggest coaster" without making Top Thrill Dragster feel irrelevant.

 

I'm certainly not married to this spinning coaster idea, but I'm pretty sure it would be easy to build the world's biggest one.

If they were just hinting one of those, I would agree. But since they've hinted both--and it can't reasonably be both--then I really think it could be any type of coaster. (In fact, I think they're just hinting that it will be a coaster.)

 

But, obviously, I could be wrong.

"Big" meaning a B&M, a GCI, an aquatrax, etc., not a spinning coaster. I'm not thinking a record breaker, but something good. Even the world's biggest spinning coaster would disappoint people, especially when the park has hinted at bigger things.

While I also would love to see another coaster addition, I am going to guess a Splash Battle water ride. Well maybe they remove SRF and replace it with a larger Pilgram's Plunge?

Maybe it's not funny, but is it impossible? I mean, could you imagine? That would be wild and painful, spinning around while you get jackhammered to death with water spraying everywhere. What could you possibly theme that after?

 

I thought it was funny.

 

Do we have to be so serious? Isn't one of the things that makes this site so great is it encourages you (well most of you) to have a sense of humor?

Well think about this: at least for Top Thrill Dragster and Maverick, before the season ended on the previous year for their debut (2002 for TTD and 2006 for Maverick) they had already started putting up supports and track. From what I can see, they haven't started construction (at least visible construction). So if it's a coaster, let's just hope they can built it fast.

FeelTheFORCE...

 

Yes I do. I haven't been following this that closely and I don't have time to read back on 500+ pages (as I am at work). Can you PM me instead of posting it again? Since everybody else already knows. Thanks.

 

You have a SICK avatar!

Its funny to me how often "limited space" is raised as an issue at CP, especially when you consider that they have 8.666 times as much room as Blackpool Pleasure Beach and only six more coasters. If they'd learn to intertwine their coasters and other tracked rides instead of laying everything out like a beginner playing RCT they would have much more room than they have.

 

Mantis' lift going over Iron Drag-queen is the only crossover I know of.

I'm going to guess that the new attraction will be GCI. But being Cedar Point, they will probably make it much longer than most GCI woodies and include a mid-course brake to allow 3 train operation, so that capacity will fit the parks attendance levels. The other option is that they make the worlds tallest and fastest dueling wooden coasters, but this seems less likely because the park already has Gemini.

 

Just my guess.

Why? Because they have a steel racing mine train they wouldn't build a racing woodie? I think it's less likely because CF likes to only run one side of all their racing woodies anyway. Personally I'd like to see a water ride because it gets mighty hot at the point during the summer...
