Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Does it only take 1 guy to "taer it down???"

 

The Wildcat was designed to be a portable coaster. It can be errected/dismantled by 3 men and a portable crane in 2 days if you've a good team.

 

And who did call this classic coaster an "eyesore"?

New boxes that hold your stuff

You will see this screen

I am guessing this was Magnum's freeway entrance? It is being transformed into the new Fast Lane entrance.

DSC02322.thumb.JPG.6a242fe1dd5b086823daf70cc2544520.JPG

There are also dinosaurs at every entrance!

new entrance to Dinosaurs Alive

And new bridges to the island

There are these yellow lines all over the midways near Gemini...I think they are for vehicles, but it seems kind of silly...

New wood!

From where I was sitting, I could spot 48 trash cans, and I was up against a building with only 180 degrees of view

Another update some people may like. Mine ride is NOT using Gemini trains this year. Not sure if that's news, but I am reiterating it either way.

"No Gemini trains in here...just us Mine Ride trains"

More Wildcat deconstruction from the other side

DSC02478.thumb.JPG.4cb163cd343bb75eb852520cec6688f0.JPG

I think there's something missing here.....

DSC02483.thumb.JPG.4dd4d4d9282dbd0e64451390bf8303d1.JPG

Looks as though they started taking it down just this week...hmmm wonder why

DSC02404.thumb.jpg.af50fb23b3c9c24089459dd990ca0fe8.jpg

The entire Millennium lift has been painted. I thought they would be working in the opposite direction, but the first airtime hill is still not painted...

DSC02415.thumb.jpg.2ed7ab34b909e68ebebb67bd54c06983.jpg

Closeup. It looks real purdy in person!

DSC02411.thumb.jpg.cfc65b62bb84210d69f1af235231c3b3.jpg

The new paint goes to this joint, which is just after the first overbanked turn where the track switches from 4 rail to 3 rail before the tunnel.

DSC02524.thumb.JPG.170f1c3da91a7bbc73b9d7c722baa64e.JPG

I always wonder why they are painting over the white lining, because the wheels are just tearing the paint off anyway...oh well.

DSC02500.thumb.JPG.d689146e8e9d4596f89f48f148cb3e28.JPG

This is the new Fast Lane entrance for Millennium. It is on the other side of Panda Express, and will walk riders under the station to the other side behind the control booth. The front seat line has been altered inside the station so that the fast lane line goes right behind it into the middle of the station. This does mean the front seat line is much shorter.

DSC02506.thumb.jpg.95cc17e3b078657c453db6e0baac0d4c.jpg

This is where fast lane guests will travel. Basically it's the old emergency exit from the station

DSC02510.thumb.jpg.3fa72b5168d035c64ca94cfdf2334ffe.jpg

They will see the underside of the station

DSC02520.thumb.jpg.a4fcf2e544915417604893ef86a42372.jpg

If you're a dork like me, this amuses you. This is the gate mechanism.

DSC02546.thumb.JPG.d8bac2ba8578474b0d486dd7d2c4d064.JPG

Gemini is receiving a completely new path for its fast lane entrance

DSC02541.thumb.JPG.64cca701ab615079aacf9ec2610f3a05.JPG

Along with some new decals apparently...either that of they are just removed for now.

DSC02553.thumb.jpg.3bac4ac3c6eb88a6dbff8095d44cd049.jpg

...and some new wood!

DSC02560.thumb.JPG.ceae738f8fe587f8ceebee74d8062c63.JPG

I am not sure what this is for, it is a path that leads behind Dragster's l0ckers, underneath dragster and into the forest. At first I thought it would be the exit for Dinosaurs Alive, but I think it is elsewhere...

DSC02565.thumb.JPG.b66b46c1863b81c192d5f7398c68de58.JPG

This is where it goes under Dragster...

DSC02569.thumb.JPG.bfb68aecf05a8afd51072bfe6c94a653.JPG

...and disappears...

DSC02587.thumb.JPG.5012e4289722c3d467fe9976169c1d1b.JPG

This is over under Iron Dragon on the Top Thrill Dragster midway. This is what I think will be Dinosaurs Alive's exit, since it is heavily themed.

DSC02597.thumb.JPG.f02f66bda68e038b469d103423b9a7d8.JPG

Also for those wondering about the marks by DT, they have installed an elevator. They have made many more rides in the park handicapped accessible as well.

^^Great photos.

 

But how did you get those of the carnival coaster with green supports that 99er could not get with his one off photo? You must have a great camera or taken multiple pictures at different angles.

 

Yes, i am beating a dead horse for some fun... before anyone asks.

^I don't know what you are looking at the picture on but its green and purple to me. That photo was taken with an iPhone, not about to take a nice camera into that mess.

 

 

 

During the off season, the midways become parking lots

You actually captured my girlfriends car in your picture.

 

...And new bridges to the island

You must not get to Halloweekends very often do you?

All of those are Halloweekends related, including the bridges which are not new at all.

Kinda Bummed about the Mine Ride, those Gemini Trains would have been better. Also, that elevator on Disaster Transport makes me think the ride will be there MUCH longer. That's not a cheap investment, it has virtually no ROI, either.

Sorry if this has been posted, but I got my cedar point "Getaway Guide" and it lists "17" coasters. That proves to me that they intended to have Wildcat open and operational this season considering most of those guides are printed around March and April.

My slight, ever-decreasing disappointment is more about the loss of a coaster than it is about the loss of Wildcat in particular. I've never been a fan of the Wildcat models, and this one did not stand out. However, I can tell these rides are fun for families, and I hope Cedar Point makes up for this loss with another family coaster soon.

Hey, to people like me, there are 17 now! I remember how stoked I was to get 18 credits at the park last year.

Well, if you count Gemini as two credits...

It's all good and just having some fun after my not knowing this was a recent picture. I looked at the photo quickly and it looked like pre-2003 to me and responded thinking someone had a photo of when it was being repainted. I tend to look at photos quickly to see if detail grabs me. If not, then you probably have been through marketing 101. . Kind of like how most folks hate how an iPhone video was created from a certain angle. This is just part of my long boring carrier and sometimes forget that I am on a not at work.
