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?

There's another piece of that press packet I saw that I may be reading too far into...

 

The name CP McCoy. Add that with West Virginia (and a touch of Kentucky), a fork in the river (a Y), a burning cabin, bootlegging and moonshine (nicknamed "white lightning")... and you get a ton of elements for the good ol' American feud of the Hatfields and McCoys.

 

Another element of the story- shooting of course. Personally, I think we may have a shooter on its way, but there are a lot of other options. Plus the whole "strikes twice" factor says duelling or racing something to me.

 

Anyway, not sure. Just thought I would point that out.

whoa, that sounds very plausible, good find.

Maybe a shooting dark ride where you're either the Hatfields or McCoys and shoot the opposite family?

 

But then again, what would that have to do with Millennium Island, unless they're building two new rides.

If you like this, go buy (rent, download) Man on Wire for more lying-down-on-thin-wire action. Only this time on the Empire State Building.

 

I think you mean the World Trade Center. But yeah, that's an absolutely fantastic film. Far more intense than just a skyway.

 

I actually have that documentary on my computer right now, and snagged a few screenshots for anyone interested. ANY person who can do this sort of thing for a living gets my respect. Being able to tune this kind of danger out and actually enjoy yourself is a super human feat IMO.

The day Cedar Point builds a dark ride, I'll eat my hat.

 

And then I'll go to Cedar Point, because that would be awesome. But still, no. They friggin' hate that stuff.

 

/Pop quiz: What's the last dark ride Cedar Fair had built?

"Strikes Twice" could mean a shuttle coaster.

Cedar Point with a shuttle coaster? No way. It's going to be a woodie, just not sure if it's an Intamin, TGG, GCII, or someone else. But it is going to be wood.

 

Wicked Twister is a shuttle coaster.

 

Also, CP already confirmed that it WON'T be a GCI.

OK. Here are the things that are odd that I haven't seen addressed directly.

 

1. The strikes twice thing. A shuttle doesn't make sense (unless it is something brand new) because the only big concepts out there are a Boomerang, a GIB or something like the various Mr. Freeze/Chiller coasters. Aside from MAYBE the last, those aren't happening. I'd sooner think a duelling coaster.

 

2. The heavy use of Y.

 

3. The red lettering on the comic. The first letters are (in order) TCFANSSPTYS (for Talkin' Commotion Fires All Night Strangers Snoopin' Plan Tell You Soon).

 

4. The dog on the bottle now.

 

5. Crystal Rock Brewing Company.

 

6. "Bold. Exciting. Refreshing."

 

This has got me intrigued, so I'm gonna keep snooping myself!
