Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

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).

 

I agree, the theming wasn't all that great, but it really was a fun ride ride. I'm sorry to see it go, because it was really served the park as a much needed family coaster.

Isn't Raptor awesome? We are counting down until the secret will be set free. Click on the 2013 tab to countdown with us. Are you on the EDGE of your seat and holding on?

 

Hmmm, I wonder why they emphasized the word "edge"...

Hinting at Raptor and "edge", there was no doubt before, but it's definitely a B&M Coaster.

 

The animation for the coaster seems to be great, just pan over a bit more.........this is such a tease . CP knows how to advertise, becuase they have me on the edge of my seat

 

anyone else notice the "top" of the gate.

^ I did a cached search on google and it has a line that says "Hac risus enim turpis elit. In sit penatibus" It translates in Latin to "For more ideas on this here. Is in the home"

 

I have no clue what that means, but I'd say the site address kinda confirms the name.

 

Web designers use gibberish Latin as placeholder text. Wouldn't read too much into it.

I received a big ole' box from the wonderful Marketing team at Cedar Point today. I can't imagine how hectic things are for them with the upcoming announcement, and yet they made time to go scout out some more awesome stuff from the demo site for GKTW to auction off!

 

I opened the first flap and literally screamed with excitement as I saw a little section of neon orange and blue peeking through--

My co-workers first thought I had won the lottery, and then started shaking their heads at how I excited I was over an old, handmade sign. "You don't understand!" I said, trying to reassure them I wasn't crazy. I'm going to be honest, I was a little nervous to pick it up after seeing it from a distance for all those years. It was definitely a surreal moment I won't forget.

 

Wait, there's more! I believe this "Detour" sign, which hung at the top of the stairs after the turnstile, was there even earlier...as part of the original theming--

How awesome would this be in your house?

 

So here's your chance, TPR'ers, to buy some totally awesome, historic Cedar Point memorabilia and actually have an excuse to tell your non-coaster lovin' friends and family..."it's for charity!" There you go, totally justifiable!

 

Thank you for your support .

So I wonder how intentional the "The Gatekeeper" page going live was? If the ride ends up being called that... ummm I highly doubt that... I would say accident, but as far as I can see the most attention for any 2013 attraction has gone to Outlaw Run, anyway point being seems like they were trying to create some buzz on another big reveal.

Ah nice, as much as I am a nerd in so many things, web design and computer code sort of stuff is not one of them. Thanks for the info.

 

I haven't commented much on CP developments, but I love the teasers. The Avalanche and Disaster thing eluding to the site of the new ride and the Mantis/Banshee thing hinting toward B&M and who knows what else. It's fun when the parks play on their history.
