Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

This is going to be a beautiful ride.

 

It's interesting that Cedar Point is getting this coaster in the post-Kinzel era. I remember reading an interview where Kinzel said Cedar Point would never get a B&M flyer because it was too gimmicky. I wonder if Kinzel would have nixed this coaster type, too? The wing coaster is pretty much the only logical choice for Cedar Point from the B&M catalog, and should at minimum provide some beautiful ocean views and a fun, smooth ride.

Kinzel is most likely the one that made the decision for a B&M Wing Coaster in Cedar Point. Remember, Ouimet has only been Cedar Fair CEO for less than a year.

 

Damn, you're absolutely right. For some reason I had it in my head Kinzel was gone since '08-'09.

I've also heard that you'll be able to see Canada across the ocean on a clear day!

^ Actually the lift hill is facing southeast so unless you can turn your head all the way around, I don't think you will be seeing Canada on Gatekeeper anytime soon.

 

I think he was making fun of the fact that someone referred to lake Erie as an "ocean". You're reading too far into this.
