Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

All these clues make a wing rider very plausible, but there have been times where I was positive it must be a certain ride/coaster and it turnes out to be the opposite.

 

Either way, I haven't been to CP in a few years and hopefully this will be something to justify going back there next year.

Personally, I really enjoyed this coaster. I thought it was a fun family ride that helped tied the park together nested in the corner across from the children's area. Although the theme did not fit and could be executed better - I hope another larger family ride could take its place.

 

The removal will open up a lot more space, however, I believe storage utilization of the area may remain. Disaster Transport was nice to add in a ride where guests could not see they were actually flying around in a storage area (looking at Google maps).

Well, that didn't take long, did it? I'm actually glad to see it go, it was way overdue for demolition and was horribly outdated and boring. Sure, it was unique and all, but that was really about it. And now, if we want to cool off in the middle of summer, we can instead go to one of the restaurants and have beer instead.

I can't wait to see the layout of the coaster better than we've seen it so far (if that newspaper article proves to be true). If it really is going to have a lot of interaction with the gate and use up a reasonable amount of space freed up by DT , this is going to be quite a long coaster!

I agree, I'm glad to see CP letting go of their record fetish and look towards building better, more visceral, experience rides. Sure, TTD is visceral and about the experience, but the moment Kingda Ka was built, the experience was diminished (if only by 26 feet). Plus TTD is only 14 seconds. Maverick kicks dirt in the face of TTD by overall satisfaction and is more inclusive because it doesn't immediately strike fear in the hearts of the fearful. CP has apparently seen the positives of this approach to attracting visitors to the park (though no one in Ohio could be convinced that anyone could do it better). It kills me to think CP has let SFMM claim the more coasters, but CP can rest easy knowing that its coasters are experiences, and the setting can't be beat =D

^I read somewhere that the wood was treated so as not to burn so easily, no idea on the validity of that "fact."

 

I'm a bit sad to see DT go. It was a fun ride (from what I remember). I rmemeber one of my friends freaking out that there was no track once we got to the top of the lift.

Will be cool to see how they use the land not only for next years new attraction but future additions to that area. I would think an area that large could be used for several new installations other than just a coaster, a new restaurant, new shop, new flat ride, new section etc. Should be an exciting announcement.

 

Then again it is Cedar Point so I probably shouldn't get my hopes up too high, probably will just be a wing rider over a parking lot.

So who's ready to see Son of Beast demolished.

 

Match and lighter fluid will take care of it.

 

I was hoping for flamethrowers, but your idea works too.

 

I'm Kinda hoping to see it napalmed like this

^ I was wondering about the re-location myself but I guess that ride was old enough that it was probably near the end of it's life cycle and probably wouldn't have been the best investment for another park. I was also wondering if they maybe saved the trains or any other hardware to potential sell as spare parts to another parks with that same model, then I did a little research and realized that there are only 3 rides like this left operating in the word so the spare parts market is probably pretty small.
