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

Cedar Point should pay people a premium to work there. Unless you love the industry and have aspirations of moving up within it, why else would you work at Cedar Point? - For most jobs, there are

Here are the links to the winter photos. It was hard for me to get good photos, I didn't have a good camera and the poor weather and inability to get close to anything didn't help.

 

To the Mod that has something against me, in no way was my original post intended as spam and I apologize for any confusion. Robb has frequently posted on my site (CPForums.com under username "robbalvey") creating new threads about upcoming trips and reviews. I always embrace these types of posts and welcome others to share their experiences on my site. Again I apologize and hope from here on out everything will be okay.

I was looking through an article regarding the investor call that Cedar Fair had recently and was pleased to find that they have created new ads for Cedar Point:

So what do you guys think? Personally, I think these look WAY better than the old ads did and these ones have more of an emotion to it. I'm really confident about the direction the company is currently headed in.

 

EDIT: Here's a link to the article where this photo came from. You can also see a couple more of the ads on this website as well.

After reading the entire article it seems that progress will be made. At what pace? Only time can tell.

Ouimet is bringing a much needed refresh to the Cedar Fair product offerings. I like the idea of the added Peanuts characters. The KBF Hotel does need an update badly and I'm glad to hear CF owned hotels will be receiving some TLC.

Knott's in particular badly needs a nighttime spectacular of some sort. Snoopy's Starlight Spectacular was "cute" but still fell short of "spectacular."

 

In regards to the new marketing, I'm all for it.

 

This one is kinda funny I'll admit.

I wonder why it's only one day this year? That's the way it used to be years ago. Glad too see we still get free food!! I figured that would change this year.

 

Just an extraordinary event especially since it's free with a season pass and tpr membership.

A fairly odd rumor was said by Screamscape...

Park News - (1/31/12) This is kind of an odd rumor, as many of the rumors surrounding Cedar Point always tend to be, but according to an e-mail sent in, The Point may opt to retire the Cedar Creek Mine Ride trains, and may attempt to put up to three of Gemini’s more comfortable trains to work here. As odd as it sounds at first, this may work as both coasters are based on Arrow’s mine train design specs.

True.. or not?

I agree that they need to do something with the CCMR trains, mainly the lapbars; they need to be updated at least. I do like the look of the trains...old western style. I hope they don't get rid of them completely but a lapbar update would be nice.

Why? Mine Ride's restraints are not very accommodating, plus Gemini's line is never long enough for it to make a difference running 2 trains rather than 3. They wouldn't run the risk of having it set up day after day either. It's not like the Mine Ride trains are heavily themed. Most of the ride's theme is around it rather than on it.
