Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I ended up getting a season pass for 2013, and with my work schedule, I have off Mondays.

I plan on going at least 3 Mondays of the month, if not all of the Mondays (and a few other days too!)

Only downside, I don't have anyone to go with for most of these days. If anyone wants to hit cp up as much as possible, hit me,up! If you're in the area of Cleveland/west of Cleveland,,I wouldn't mind carpooling as well. I have a parking pass thing as well with my pass.

 

cheers,

garb.

you can always pm me, or email for a quicker response - ohnoesitsmeh@hotmail.com

please excuse the spelling or grammar, I'm on my phone and don't care enough to go back

I'm sorry Raptor, you're no longer the most beautiful part of the front of the park.

 

50 bucks says it will still be the best though. That's not a knock on Gatekeeper, just me praising Raptor. I can't believe I'm saying this about a coaster at Cedar Point but I think Raptor is very underrated by the enthusiast community.

^ Really? I've always thought Raptor to be OVER rated, but that's probably because for quite a long time, I had Montu a short 45 minute ride from home... I don't DISLIKE Raptor, but I never understood all the love for it. I think that there are better inverts around. But again, we all know what opinions are like...

I love Raptor in the front row. I haven't been on TopGun (Carowinds) since 2004, but I rode it 10 times and thought it was better than Raptor. Batmans are great too, I've been on lots of them.

 

Raptor, Top Gun, Great White, Goliath (SFFT), Batman (SFGAm), Batman (SFOT)

This is the truth, and I think Raptor is more or less middle of the pack when it comes to B&M Inverted Coasters- so I guess it's a knock against either Gatekeeper or Wing Coasters in general. They're visually impressive though, so front of the park placement is not a bad idea.

Has anyone here ridden Raptor in the back seat? I think it's even better than the front.

 

The back right seat is the best seat on Raptor, heck on most B&M inverts period. Afterburn is also awesome when sitting in the back right seat.

 

As for that view of Gatekeeper that is going to be one sweet backdrop to the Wicked Twister midway. The ride is looking great from all angles.

I have been riding Raptor and Monster.

The last one totally blew me away. But that is probably because of the other park rides that are a letdown compared to Cedar Point ones.

The missing block section part made an huge impact for the rest of the ride. It was pulling so many G`s in the second half, nothing that remembered me to Raptor. But still both good rides. I hope to be riding Gatekeeper next year.

I think B&M Inverted Coasters are actually better back seat rides. I'll queue for the front once every so often just for a change of pace, but the forces feel greater in the back.
