Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Let's call this thread "Dead Horse Beaten to a Bloody and Unrecognizable Lump of Flesh and Hair."

 

...and then repeatedly punch ourselves in the face until we forget about the twenty minutes of our lives we just wasted.

Thank you because that is exactly what this thread feels like.

 

(I'll add the word Hawk just to fit in)

So along with the ride, is the plan to also expand the actual park into the parking lot? Or is the lift just going to extend itself out over the lot and then do its course towards the front gate? I know the plan is to open up the former Disaster Transport area and make it look pretty with the beach, but just curious at how extensive this will be. It'd be nice if they added a few buildings, and made it a bit more landscaped & expanded further, possibly for other future additions in that direction. I assume the Trioka ride will be moved.

 

I'm glad Ouimet is removing some of the junkier rides. Next one on my list is the Matterhorn ride. That one always looks so out of place & carnival-ish.

From the Sandusky Register article, it sounds like it'll just be like Leviathan, with the ride extending into the parking lot. Whether or not they'll even bother to paint over the parking space lines is another matter.

I have a feeling that it will, I know the ride isn't Ouimet's brainchild, but he has made the park look so much better then it has in recent years and I don't see him just allowing the brand new statement ride to the entrance of the park fly over pavement without any effort in landscaping to some degree.

From Screamscape:

 

Wing Coaster - Semi-Confirmed - (7/18/12) I find it hard to believe this will be the name, but according to an e-mail sent my way, they claim the new Wing coaster could end up being called GateKeeper. Sounds more like a temporary name / project code-name to me... so I’m expecting to see this one changed. So far, I didn’t notice any hits on the Trademark database either.

 

Wave 2 of awful Hawk jokes, begin. Actually, don't.

Gatekeeper . Oh Cedar Fair how you amaze me with your naming skills. Although, it does make sense given the coasters location near the parks main entrance.

In reply to the entrance talk, nothing is confirmed at all yet. So, who knows we may get either a new area or just the coaster. Just because the Register said this, doesn't mean it is definitely true or true at all.

 

^^Not even a confirmed name, just a rumor that Cedarr Fair has nothing to do with yet or ever.

It's a step up from "Dragster H20".

Agreed on that. Let's hope they don't EVER hold another "name the ride vote" on their Facebook page again .

Dragster H20......... How ORIGINAL, people seem to only fawn over the big wigs. That name is Terrible. If they hold a poll for the next coaster name. It will be "Top Maverick Force" calling it!

I wonder who sent Lance the "GateKeeper" name. Must be just a code name for it. It would make sense being at the gate, but what an awful name if it were true!

 

I think Cedar Point should renovate the area over there, making it a bit more classic, beachy looking. It's already very colorful! Kind of like how they renovated Paradise Pier at DCA, but of course on a smaller scale. It would be cute if there was some sort of boardwalk area around the ride. I hope the green track we've seen isn't for Cedar Point. Too similar to Raptor, unless it was supposed to be some sort of sequel to the Raptor. Who knows.

If it is that green track (which I doubt) the jeep will think its the same ride as Raptor or that it IS Raptor . Also it would be nice if they did renovate that area, it dose look a little bit dated and if they do, they should also do the same for the Gemini midway, that looks REALLY dated.

That area would look so nice as a boardwalk with a GCI woodie fronting the beach...but alas.

 

 

Wholeheartedly agree. I think a woodie like that would look fantastic both on the beach and when it would travel over/under the entrance. Though a wingrider would definitely look intimidating, a GCI would without a doubt would make the entrance amazing looking.
