Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Maybe because Son of Beast might close down for good, this will open up an opportunity for Cedar Point to build the tallest and fastest wooden coaster? Not necessarily next year, but eventually. Something to think about.

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

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

So basically there were about as many rides open as there would be in peak season with 15 mph winds.

LOL

Didn't they try this once already? I believe its called Mean Streak, and we know how that turned out.

I won't be thinking about that idea at all

Yeah but Mean Streak was obviously built prematurely and before it's time. New and different technology is available now that wasn't there in 1991. I was just throwing it out there as some food for thought. Besides, Magnum didn't stop them from building Millennium, essentially a taller and faster Magnum.

Do they have enough room for that even? I mean just look at Son of Beast's size.

Son of Beast is a large coaster because it's fairly long. Look at El Toro. It's 181 feet tall and 4400 feet long (about 2600 feet shorter than SOB), and it doesn't seem to take up a huge chunk of land at all. Plus T&T have insisted numerous times that Cedar Point is NOT running out of space.

Cedar Point still has PLENTY of room. 300 acre park, 64 acre parking lot. They will eventually build out into the lot and I bet either build parking structures (Which are very costly), or look at some offsite parking alternatives (May be more likely).

 

Now Sandusky Griffing Airport is eventually moving from it's current location on the water on Cleveland Road. Cedar Point could buy this property, and then some day build a parking complex there and then ferry the guests over like Magic Kingdom style.

Or they could just stay at the Breakers, thats never a bad Idea...

 

But Cedar Point still has a lot of undeveloped land, and the land that would free up once mean streak will be buh-bye. Either that or Disaster Transport.

 

Personally, I'd like to see Mean Streak go under first...

Rumors about CP expanding into the parking lot have been around as long as the internet. Bottom line is that CP is a massive park with plenty of space, and the only reasons rumors persist is because of the park's unique physical geography which is readily apparent to anyone who's been there or seen a picture of the place.

 

The park's attendance has been relatively flat for a long time now, why would they expand the park's boundary so dramatically? What would be the point, especially when with creative ride placement and removal and shuffling they have plenty of perfectly good, midway-accessible real estate already?

I'm sure CP's annoucement for 2010 will make a huge splash in the industry. And then the battle begins for who holds the record....

 

Splash = Aquatrax

Battle = Duel

 

It's a Dueling Aquatrax! WooHoo!

^ That would be amazing lol, though as this goes on I am starting to think that maybe it will be a record breaking water ride.

 

Though my fingers are still crossed for a new coaster.

 

As I have said before, what ever Cedar Point builds will be a great addition to the park.

I just want them to stop dragging this out and tell us already.

How abouts a Splash Battle that actually has different levels, drops. Also making it the world's longest, largest, and tallest in the world.

1. I really hope it is a splash battle so all of the CP fanboys will cry.

2. On the other hand, I really don't want to hear the CP fanboys cry because it is so annoying.

3. Though, I really don't want it to be a coaster because they won't shut up about it.

4. CP fanboys are just overall annoying.

5. I just can't win.
