Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

DDF and WWF are both OD Hopkins models....exact same boats, + high capacity. Hmmmm....

 

I could see it happening. I'd rather see Intamin wood or a ZacSpin as i've mentioned though...but i could see CP putting in a flume i guess. Who knows. They did just spend 50million on new coasters for KD and Carowinds, so I can't imagine another 25million in capital expenses in this economy...plus all the new Planet Snoopys and whatever else.

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?

One thing's for sure, CF is sure spending a boat load of money on their parks next year.

^Both a flyer and a dive would fit CP's collection of rides that are "bark, no bite". Though I can't see why people can't grasp the idea that it could very well be a water addition next year.

 

Some people can't accpt it, some just ignore it and assume that their just gonna build a coaster in 2011. I didn't really care what it was for 2010 when all this viral stuff popped up, because I have no intent to visit CP again until 2011, but now with all the arrogant hopes and in some cases demands for a new coaster "that some fanboys think are owed to them" I wish out of spite it isn't. Parks need more than box shaped and triangular track to stay afloat.

from CP's Twitter:

cedarpoint Them Canfield's & McGee's will still be feudin' down river next year...

 

Definitely sounding like a water ride. Perhaps a themed log flume or a splash battle?

"that some fanboys think are owed to them"

 

Did I miss something? Did someone actually say something like this? Because if they did, that would be AWESOME!

 

How many times do I have to say Splash Battle?

^ They said in an earlier post that Mack wasn't the manufacturer, so if they're not giving false information (gasp!) then it would may be from another manufacturer....like the one at IB perhaps...which i think is kinda unnatractive.

 

This game of theirs is getting old, really. But i continue to be strung along with it.

Well, in any case, it has to be something that goes high enough so that Paddlewheel Excursions has enough clearance. Do splash battles go up and down? I thought they just meandered around a flat course...I could be wrong, though.

^ I understood what you were saying in the first place. No need to change the quotes around.

 

FLyer Flyer Flyer!!

 

Diving Diving Diving!!

 

4thd 4thd 4thd!!

 

Where'd you find this information??? This might help narrow down the results.

 

Are you serious? That wasn't a post of information. That was just him saying he wanted any of those kinds of coasters.

 

I also know that Mack was taken out of the equation. However, I just don't know what else it could be other than a Splash Battle or a log flume of some sort. People are just holding on to hope for a coaster for no reason.

Thats correct. They're limited to a body of water and float around the course...some Mack models have a tow-cable, but not the ones at Dwood and Great America....they are the same float-through model.

 

They would have to build a pretty big bridge for maintenance, you'd think...in order to let paddlewheel go underneath. Not sure how they're going to do that with whatever they build.

I just can't see a Splash Battle going in. It just doesn't seem like a good fit for CP. Plus the fact that it looks like its likely going to cross over onto Millennium Island, Splash Battles don't (yet) go up or down, and I don't think the Island is big enough for a full SB to be contained on it.

 

But that rumored Epic Flume... I could definitely see it. CP is well overdue for another water ride to replace WWL, especially one that doesn't get the riders too wet and could appeal to the entire family.

This thread is quickly becoming idiotic. I hope CP hurries up the announcement and disappoints people. When is it? Have they given a date, or are they just saying they'll drop hints all week?

Idiotic how? Given the fact that CP just seems to be playing mind games with their so called "clues", there are a lot of different possibilities for what this is going to be. What's wrong with speculating and guessing what it could be?

Have any new Intamin drop towers even been built since the Kentucky Kingdom accident?

 

No one ever did answer this question of mine I posted a few pages back. I know that isn't what it's going to be, I'm just curious.

Meh, I'm still going with my gut with the Splash Battle, however, I could see a giant Intamin flume to rival the one at Holiday World.

 

I've been sucked in to this thread and I just can't get out.
