Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I did a quick scan and did see any mention of this (and forgive me if I just missed it), but wouldn't it make the most sense to re-purpose the Space Spiral into a "Starflyer" if that is the ride they intend to add.

 

I mean ... it is about 300 ft tall and nobody ever rides the thing.

 

// Just a thought

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?

^Actually, you'd be surprised how many people ride rides you would deem unpopular. Space Spiral almost always has a line, expecially on crowded days. (I say this having worked the ride)

 

Also, I think it's funny because Lebron was not even able to ride a lot of the rides because of Intamin's 6'6" height restriction. The ride ops had to keep kicking him off the rides.

Good thing Lebron did not go to kennywood park to ride the new coaster.

 

On a side note, you may want to keep an eye on cedarpoints facebook page for the 2011 announcement. Got this in my email today...

Here's something that looks like a clue. Cedar Point's profile picture on their facebook page has changed to a sweet retro logo with a bunch of question marks underneath.

They just changed their status too.

"Cedar Point loves its fans. And to prove it, you'll be the first to know about our plans for 2011. Let the game begin."

I've never been on a Star Flyer ride before, but I have to say that they look like an absolute blast! One of my favorite flats in general are the Wave Swingers, so I'm sure this amped up version would definitely be to my liking. If (or based on the signs, when) CP gets one of these, I think it will be a terrific addition. I do hope it ends up near the beach, as that placement would provide some awesome views of the lake, plus it'd be great for the continued revitalization of that area of the park. I already love how that area's improved with Wicked Twister and MaXair. Throw in that beach-front woodie, and it'd have a great "boardwalk-y" feel.

The Star Flyer in Orlando is Pretty fun, not a blast IMO. I can't see Cedar Point getting the Funtime version though. It will have to be something different. A Star Flyer out by the lake on a windy day would only be fun if you wanted to feel at all times that death was a real possibility. Trust me, I love flats and on a windy day our Star Flyer is a real white knuckle experience. Not very fun and not re-rideable for me. I do take people who have never been just for the OMFG factor.

 

A modern version of the Jets is maybe a closer guess. I don't see actual planes but more along those lines than a chain held basket. I would love to see it travel up and down the tower faster than SF.

 

That logo however does look exactly like a Star Flyer

The logo has been in use at CP, on the sides of the carousel building, for a long time. The shape has nothing to do with the Starflyer, so it's more than likely just there for the "bringing back memories" part of the ride.

If this was a serious coaster addition, there would be ride parts arriving and stored near the Breakers Express as usual. They did recently just cut the grass, but I'm sure that means nothing. My gut feel says this will be another "Big Dick"Kinzel disappointment. He needs to retire, his time has past.

Here is some video of Labron James failing at the basketball game at cedar point.

This is all the proof that I need to confirm that park games are rigged. How can a pro basketball player miss all 3 shots?

 

Because he's not allowed to dunk!!

I went to the park today, and I can honestly say that Mother Nature hates me, the rain was on and off like a faucet. I'll postr my own PTR when I get home in a few days and away from terrible hotel internet.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't CP's plans have been finalized by the time that article was written (Feb 2, 2010)? If that was the case, then CP definitely isn't getting one of these because the article talked about how they were looking for a first client. Still looks like a cool idea though.
