Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

It's obvious that they'll probably recycle a name from another park with Talon or Night Hawk being tops on the list,we have to remember that NOT everyone in CP's marketing audience is an enthusiast let alone is aware of how many parks CF operates or the number of recycled ride names they have used in the past.

 

Well if that' the case then I guess any of these names from other CF owned parks could do for Cedar Point's Wing Rider

 

."Flight Deck"

."Steel Force"

."Possessed"

."Talon"

."Nighthawk"

."Wild Thing"

."Vortex" (Probably CP won't use it, because Kings Island has a coaster of that name)

."Leviathan"

."Flight of Fear"

As much as I like to poke fun at some of the less-than-creative names they've come up with the past, their recent new coaster names haven't been too bad. Leviathan, Stinger, Diamonback, Behemoth, Prowler, etc... I won't be surprised if it's another generic animal name, but I don't think they're going to recycle an existing name for this one.

I don't think that Cedar Point is really the kind of park to recycle ride names. Their coasters, are usually the first of their kind, and usually have unique names, I.E. Millenium Force, Magnum XL 2000, Top Thrill Dragster, Blue Streak, Mean Streak, Wicked Twister, and Maverick. Now yes, I know about Demon Drop, and Corkscrew, there are some exceptions. I think that the marketing team is capable of coming up with something unique, as they have in the past.

Has anyone seen this yet?

from Screamscape.

2013 - Wing Coaster - Semi-Confirmed - (7/25/12) The latest buzz from The Point seems to indicate that Sandusky could become home to a cousin of Canada’s Leviathan. I can only hope that this dragon will also demand his own cave lair and other fun environmental stuff to fly through. The dragon rumor has also been confirmed by our friends at CoasterFusion as well as some comments on the possible color of the coaster track being green… but with the sighting of the blue wing image on DT being so similar to the colors used on Leviathan, I’m hoping for another blue / cyan combo paint job myself.

I wouldn't be surprised if they did something with a similar nomenclature. Leviathan was a sea monster and also the gatekeeper of hell. Based on the position of the proposed ride, they could probably incorporate the theming as a sea monster (as it's essentially adjacent to the lake), as well as bringing the idea of the park entrance flyover into it. I'd think that it'd be smart to call it Leviathan, and use the same logo. Then they wouldn't have to apply for a trademark for a new name (DISCLAIMER: I am not a lawyer, so take that with a pile of salt). Maybe I'm totally off here, but it's plausible (but Half Life 3 coming out tomorrow is also plausible )

I think using Leviathan is a good idea I guess. Not usually a fan of parks using the same names over and over again for rides, which in this case would only be two coasters. I love originality. But I do love the name Leviathan and would love to see the blues used in the poster used on the coaster. I'm sure it would be very beautiful.

In all seriousness, Cedar Point and Cedar Fair hardly recycle names. The only name I can think of off the top of my head is Thunderhawk, Dominator, Flight Deck, Boomerang, and Planet and Camp Snoopy rides. Cedar Fair has not recycled names for brand new attractions lately and I don't think they will start any time soon. If anything Six Flags is the name recycler with at least 4 recycled names for 2012 rides including X-Flight, Superman Ultimate Flight, Apocalypse and Deja Vu.

Windseeker, but that was a more intentional move. Cp is always 1st when it comes to coasters, in the Cedar Fair Chain. So it's going to be the King(tallest, fastest etc.) of whatever type of coaster it's supposed to be.
