Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

It looks like any other new B&M ride.

 

The setting is awesome though, and I would love to ride it.

 

The setting might just be my biggest disappointment. The front gate is beautiful, as is the location on the beach, I just hope they add some grass/landscaping below the low parts of the ride, instead of the gravel it appears to be now. That being said, I think the bottom of the hills are going to pull some pretty good G's. Back left is probably the place to be, but the POV makes the right side look even better with all those near miss elements.

^^I'm pretty sure they are growing grass in those gray spots underneath the coaster. It's tough to grow grass, plants etc. when it's a giant construction zone. Give it time.

 

You're probably right. It's still not done, and I'm sure they are working on bringing some life to that area.

 

The ride looks incredible. I wouldn't say "typical B&M", because this one looks like it will bring some forces. Cedar Point with another, potential, world class coaster. In my mind it already turns the big 3 into the big 4 (Maverick, Millenium, and Dragster being the others).

What really stood out to me is how massive this thing looks/feels (I guess you can't really feel anything from a video). I don't exactly know how to explain it, but for some reason the layout just "feels" more massive than it actually is, and I really like that. I'm definitely looking forward to being able to ride it in a few weeks!

This ride looks outstanding, I can't wait to ride it this summer.

 

 

The photo of the giant queue suggests what riding it this summer will be -- a very long wait in the unshaded sun.

 

I hope they merely have forgotten to finish adding shades to the queue.

 

I rode Wild Eagle last year and the wing rider train is nice for comparing rides all over the train.

Two credits! TWO CREDITS!!!

 

Seriously though, it would be freaking awesome if Cedar Point used two camera feeds (one on the left side, one on the right side) of the same run and arranged them side by side.

 

Idea for a Theme Park Review POV, maybe?

Am I the only one that thinks the left looks better?

 

The extra hang time it seems to provide while rolling over into the first drop looks freaking amazing from the front view.....Last row left should get a nice whip into the first drop!!!

As far as the wing over drop is concerned, the left wing in the front on X Flight is amazing. Gatekeepers front left wing should be just as if not more spectacular than X Flight.

Magnum is up there too. I love CP, and I'm a CP fanboy of sorts. GK looks awesome, but I'm hoping the airtime hill is better than it looks. But hey, at least it has one! It looks fun and unique and I can't wait to ride it. And no trims either! Now we need to speculate what the Point will do next . Iron Streak, anybody?

I've heard front left is the place to be for that airtime hill or the back.

That's funny, I prefer the front right of X Flight over the left. Just shows how different of a ride experience these wing coasters give.

I agree as I loved front left on X Flight, the slow roll over the track, hanging there looking straight down while the rest of the train catches up. From what I recall my very first ride on X Flight was back left and I thought I was going to get a good yank into the wing over drop but it wasn't as strong, though still fun. Maybe with the drop being bigger on GK that might change.
