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

To me, it's not even so much that they changed the schedule. It happens, whatever. But I called Hotel Breakers literally 8 days ago because the website said there were no rooms available and said to c

Millennium Force has misters in its station now, just like the ones on I305. Have these been there all season?

 

Magnum changed its seat belts so that they are now pushbuttons (like Mean Streak) instead of the old style locks (like Gemini). Did this happen recently, or like the misters, have I just been blind to such changes all season long?

Millennium Force had misters in the station back when I was there in the last week of June and I honestly can't remember which kind of seat belts Magnum had.

 

 

Are you referring to the misters on the track that were cooling the wheels? I also noticed that when I went in July. If he saw them in June, seems like they were there all season I guess.

 

I was completely against the idea of any kind of flat ride coming this year, but the more I think about it the more excited I get. If it really is going to be some where around 400 feet, that will be pretty awesome.

I dont understand why some people seem so bummed about this, sure its *probably* not a coaster but I personally find the idea of a 400 foot starflyer-type ride to be pretty awesome, you might laugh now but when youre suspended 400 feet in the air in a chair like that for an extended period of time I bet its a lot more thrilling than it sounds...and it sounds pretty thrilling to me

I think Cedar Fair might have had a buy 3 at 301ft and get one 400ft for free deal

 

Wonderland has announced theirs...yes, i know there's another thread about it so I will not go any further but provide the link to Wonderland's ride page. http://canadaswonderland.com/attractions/detail.cfm?ai_id=691

 

Ok so KBF,CP & CWL each get one of the first three...who gets the 4th one?

To me - this thing looks TERRIFYING! You can take me up in a coaster, flip me three ways to Sunday, launch me or send me backwards - but put me on something with my feet dangling at that height and then spin me around - oh the horror. Can't wait.

Ok, so I realize everyone has their own opinions about this, however I can't help but give mine.

 

I am really disappointed with this whole thing.

 

First off... after the cluster that STR has turned out to be Cedar Point really needed a "sure thing." I really don't think this is it. I realize that they probably spent a bunch of cash on STR and this is probably a lot cheaper than putting in a woodie on the beach, but I just don't see this drawing people in the way a coaster can.

 

Second, this was the worst kept secret ever. Cedar Fair needs to take a good hard look at their PR people and maybe steal a couple employees from Busch Gardens who really seem to have their stuff together.

 

Third, I know that 300 to 400 feet is high and all, but really I have to wonder how thrilling this is going to be. It is a giant swing... so what? After the first 30 seconds or so getting used to the height I guess it will just be a good way to check out the view.

 

Now, let me say that I am happy for everyone who thinks this is the best idea ever or is really looking forward to this ride. I wish that I could share your excitement, but I can't get over the feeling that this is lame. I can only hope that they pull out the stops and throw it down next year. It seems obvious what they really need, maybe they are just in denial. Or maybe they are worried about a repeat of Mean Streak.

 

 

On a lighter note... I will be at Cedar Point next week and will try to take a bunch of pictures for a good trip report.

I think this will be a great addition to CP. I'm betting this area will see a major coaster in the next season or two and this is part of their overall plan to revamp this area....first with WT and moving the wheel plus this addition. I would bet they raze the aquatic stadium to make way for whatever else is coming that will finish this area off nicely. Intamin woodie perhaps (yes please!) ??

 

Of course not everyone will be pleased, regardless of how impressive something is, that is nothing new. Though i don't get how some feel like they're entitled to a new ride every X years or so, especially during hard economic times. You should be thankful your favorite park hasn't gone belly up, seriously.

Well said! It looks like a great addition to the park!

It is going to look amazing. Parks adding anything right now should be commended.

Im really hoping that if the Texas Giant conversion is a success they will do the same thing to Mean Streak since it is such a similar ride. How much everyone disliked going to that area of the park until then would then be just a distant memory.

My questions is ... are they using the existing Sky Cabin tower at Knotts for this new attraction. If so, then consider this the space spiral's replacement. I mentioned it a few pages ago and it just makes too much sense.

 

The problem with this, imo, is that Mondial would have an easier time building something from scratch, rather than trying to convert another manufacturers ride-inards...i just think conversion could add lots of complications and unexpected stuff. That would be a good recycling effort though!
