Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 1989: Wicked Twister's permanent closure announced!

Recommended Posts

Just like to say, I've never had a front seat ride on Millennium Force or Top Thrill Dragster until this year...

 

And I'm mad at myself for not riding in the front seats before! Dragster's wait for the front was abut 25 minutes, and Millennium's was about 15 (both were full). You've got to try the front on those two rides! Millennium was a whole new ride in my mind, coming from usually riding in the back and the middle. I'm going to wait for the front each time I visit!

 

I think CP is a front seat ride park. Maverick, Dragster, Raptor, Mantis, Millennium, Wicked Twister, Mean Streak, are all front seat rides in my opinion. Backseats would be Millennium as well, Magnum, Gemini, Blue Streak, and Corkscrew.

 

I have to disagree with Wicked Twister in the front, yeah the visuals are great, but personally, I love the front seat in the last car...

 

I agree with your back seats though, Gemini has a nice pullover...

Yeah you got that right! I never ride TTD and MF anywhere else but the front seat. Did both coaster only once in the back and it was by far not as good as up front. Can't wait to go up to sandusky tomorrow for the next two days!

^^WildCat is NOT a skippable credit. It is a great ride and and should not be missed.

 

I agree, wildcat is one of the most overlooked coasters at CP and i think its actually one of the better rides at the park. I just wish it didnt always have a huge line.

^^I agree, the back two rows on Wicked Twister are definitely the best seats on that ride.

 

I think they edit:should reconfigure and have all the cars facing the center of the train, so that there are two "back rows".

 

so they would do this

The line is why I said it's skippable. It was one of my favorite roller coasters at CP when I rode it last, but I haven't gotten to it again because of the wait. It just needs better capacity.

While Magnum's first drop is great in the back seat, I'm going to have to go ahead and say that the ejector seat is by far the best ride experience on any hyper on Earth. The only thing I can compare even remotely close is back seat on Apollo.

That would be rather painful as the initial launch would throw the backwards-facing riders forward (possibly causing whiplash/neck damage). The only reason it can launch backwards is because it already has speed and it's a gentle boost, not a full-force launch.

Just to further speculate on the ZacSpin rumor, I was watching "How They Do It" on the Science Channel and they had a segment on roller coasters at Cedar Point. They were talking to the Cedar Point VP about how they make designs and flashed through some designs. I thought it was funny that there was some ZacSpins in there. This is completely speculation and I just thought these were cool. The ZacSpin layouts are cool and original. This show was also made before Maverick was finished with construction, so it's pretty old.

 

It's hard to tell what it says on the first picture in pencil, but it says

"3600-400ft" "3 launch Sections" "80' " "45 mph" "60 -70-80 degree banks" "2 min"

^ Thanks for dispelling the rumors! I'll be sure to take some pictures when I see the markings tomorrow.

 

By the way, I don't take much time in the gift shops, so does anyone know any good souveniers for $5? I wanna take something home this time.

Actually if you hit the shop near the shooting gallery in the back of the park, some bargains can be found.

^ Thanks, but I already went. Got myself a Raptor mug and a Mantits buttom for $6. Speaking of today, I saw some interesting things. First of all, I saw the markings near Ocean Motion, and they were red, orange, green, and blue. Also, I saw the Mean Streak trains on the transfer track. Maybe they were testing the green train? I also did five consecutive rides on the Mantits.

 

Oh, and Hot Summer Lights isn't very good, although the intro with Boston is amazing!

I have a question. This might be in the wrong forum, so please forgive me.

 

I am planning to go down to Sandusky (and Cedar Point) for three days and three nights. Seeing as I'm going to visit a friend, or two, and visit the park I need to find a place to stay that won't break my wallet. And I was wondering if anyone had any advice.
