Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Hilarious responses to this coaster. It will be interesting, that's for sure. I haven't ridden a wingrider yet so I cannot comment on how they ride, but hey, CP is getting another coaster. Look forward to riding this next year. Now if only they would replace Mean Streak...

When this thing opens, it's gonna be the best Wing Rider in Ohio. I do like the whole "Ride layout designed specifically for Cedar Point" part of the press release, must just be Cedar Fair's way of saying "this ride was totally designed for this park, not for one of our other parks and then sent here instead."

Hopefully after OR opens to rave reviews, CP will ask RMC to do a TG redo of it and then we can call it the NMS.

Wow, the coaster looks pretty awesome. I have not had the opportunity to ride a wing rider yet so hopefully next year will be the year for my first with this one. I am definitely going to assume this will be part of TPR's Mid West tour next year including Silver Dollar City.

This is a pretty nit picky complaint but I wish they would of had the lift hill face the park instead of the parking lot. Seems like a roll dive and vertical loop combo could have been designed to occupy roughly the same space as the roll dive and Immelmann does but would allow the view from the lift to be of the park and the beachfront portion of the lake instead of a view of the parking lot. I realize the station layout would have had to of been different also but a view of the park instead of the parking lot would have been worth it to me. Still looks like a great ride, glad to see they incorporated the interactive key hole fly throughs, those should be spectacular in person. I felt like Wild Eagle could have used a few of those.

 

I wonder what kind if ridiculious nickname the CP fan boys will give this thing, Gatey? Keeper? Keepsey? Wingy? I feel gross thinking about it .

It looks like great fun and a awesome addition to cedar point (which is already a fantastic park). It´s good to see that B&M are building a tall, fast and long looping coaster again because they haven't been doing it for quite a long time. It's also great that the first inversion, according to the announced height, will the the tallest in the world. Nice one CP!

^ ummm it'll be the only Wing Rider in Ohio...

 

That's your opinion.

 

Hahahaha. I feel like this will be the best Wing Rider in the world, based on looks I'd say it is without a doubt. Best coaster at CP, it's up there on looks...I'll just have to wait to ride it. The airtime hill is only 105 ft and the drop is 164 ft, that sounds nice...wouldn't be surprised to find it a little trimmed, but it has some big elements that follow. I really do like the layout, the more I look at it. This corkscrew looks huge, probably B&M's largest, and looks like it may give some air! And while that overbanked turnaround element just wants so badly to be a dive loop, I'll still count it as an inversion.

I'm no CP fanboy, but if I had to choose from your choices, it'd be Keepsey.

1710 pph! Wow, that's insanely high. Of course, the actual capacity is never as high as the estimated capacity, but when comparing to some other coasters it is very high:

 

Cheetah Hunt: 1370 pph

Intimidator 305: 1350 pph

Diamondback:1620 pph

 

Not always true, Intimidator at Carowinds was only listed at 1600 and when the crew actually tried we could run it at 1650 all day. We almost broke 1700 one time...
