Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

That's what I don't like about Cedar Point; it's a bit too compact. If only they had more room to build rides. I know there are people who are thinking, 'they have plenty of space left to build rides' which they still do. It just seems like everything is so close together. That's why I love going to King's Island because there everything is spread out; the reason being that they arn't land-locked.

I actually kinda like compacted parks. Or rather, compacted coaster areas. If there are several coasters in one area, it's a lot easier to get off of one and go to the other. When I have to walk like a half mile to get to each ride, I just get tired out a lot easier and then the rides are more "I FINALLY get to sit down now!" instead of "Wow this is exciting!"

 

The main downside is the crowding. That part of Cedar Point sucked. Tons of people in the same area walking in all different directions... O.o

Really?

^That picture proves that even if a park appears to not have room to build more, if they wanted to, they would find a way to do it, as clearly show there. And that applies to ANY park.

 

Btw, what park is that a photo of?

 

Looks like I'm going to be downloading some more POV videos.

Wow.... now THAT'S a bit much.... but I guess it works for that park. And it probably would be really fun to ride the wooden coaster, then get off and ride the steel coaster (or vice versa) and ride over and between the coaster you just rode.

 

But what about loose articles on the ride? Even though people aren't supposed to bring them on, it still happens. If someone looses their hat on the steel coaster, does that present a problem for the wooden coaster? What about people who lose change on the steel coaster? It doesn't look like there are nets between the coasters going over the GP. Some falling change could really hurt if it hit you in the head...

^^That park's in Sweden, where people aren't idiots.

 

Regarding Wildcat, I wouldn't mind either way if it gets removed for a future project. It's never a must-ride for me on my visits, but it never makes me wish they were doing something more productive with its land, unlike the northern tip of the park. It just sits there quietly in its corner, plodding away.

I agree, many times when I go to Cedar Point I don't even glance at it when I pass by it. However, I did ride it this past Wednesday and it still is a fun, neat, little coaster.

We've been three times, and still haven't ridden it. We just can't justify waiting in line for it, especially when there's a random one in Frederick less than an hour away from us. And the line moves so very slow. We're kind of hoping it goes, just so we don't feel bad for skipping it anymore!

Sorry these are a little old, but working at cp=no internet access...

 

These are the purple train getting added to the track (still not put together/waiting on parts) and the box the catchcar was sent to Europe in...enjoy.

Not many people are aware the catchcar is nearly 25 feet long!

Cedar Point tends to store a lot of coaster cars in the middle of Mean Streak, I'm guessing to work on them. When I went to the park on Memorial Day as well as June 8th, I noticed that in the middle of the coaster there was a car that looked just like one of Corkscrew's cars but it was yellow with a hint of purple (Corkscrew's train colors are red, white, and blue); I knew it wasn't from that coaster. I thought for a second and I realized that it could very well be from The Double Loop from Geauga Lake because its coaster cars were the same color. I'm not sure if it's still there but can anyone comfirm this?
