Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I made a fun video of Cedar Point. It has some pretty cool shots and editing. Check it out. Youtube link is below

Really enjoyed the video!

 

I've never seen someone use slow motion really in any videos and it really helped capture the emotions of the riders, especially on TTD. Loved it really, hoping you make many more!

 

I have made a second video. This video has much more energy, with quicker transitions and of course a few surprises. All footage used is new except for one shot that I took from my GateKeeper video. ENJOY!

I do feel bad because of my lack of Blue Streak though. There is always HalloWeekends or next year to make up for it!

 

Ride On!

My friend and I have just came back from Ohio in which we spent two days inside Cedar Point in which we got to ride Gatekeeper twice, my friend finally rode MaXir with me, spent two hours in line to ride MF before the lousy thing broke down, and went to Soak City to ride some tubin' rides and having a beer at a wet bar. Both of those days was CROWD-ED, thus I saw long lines on some older coasters ( such as Iron Dragon and Corkscrew that surprised me. We didn't mind that Skyhawk was down, but I was disappointed to learn that Shoot the Rapids was down as well.

 

With the T-storm that hit the area that Saturday morning, I turned on the news to catch the weather report and would see the story about the accident at Shoot The Rapids that injured a few riders ( not to mention the terrible report about a rider falling off while riding the Texas Giant - my condolences ). It seems like this ride is becoming like Deja Vu to me: that coaster was always closed whenever I visited and it took me ten years before I finally rode it, but I'm in no hurry to ride Shoot The Rapids until maintenance can find out what cause this water ride to fail ( my question would be why didn't the ride's anti-rollback system work?).

 

As for the proposed dark ride, this park could use one. The only question will be will they use the second floor of the ballroom or will they choose another site? Here's a crazy idea: make it an indoor coaster! What? Oh, they did that before - so sorry - forgot about Disaster Transport already. I should delete that line before I press enter.

 

With nothing more to add, I shall close ( I hope I didn't forget anything)

 

"I'm not perfect; I just love to ride!!!"

I can see Cedar Point building a dark ride where WildCat used to be, since the show stuff that is in its place could change overtime/be changed (I think). Also, do you think it's a possibility Cedar Point will remove Power Tower? When I went this year the lines for both the Space Shot and Turbo Drop towers were dead. If they do, it's an idea spot for the dark ride as well.

A dark ride would be great to the Blue Streak area, plus it would bring more notoriety to Blue Streak as well.

 

I'm not the best with CP history, but what was the Pirate ride?

More proof for why we strongly recommend Fast Lane for anyone visiting a park from out of town. If you has Fast Lane, not only would you not have missed Millennium Force, but you probably could have ridden it 3-4 times in the two hours before it broke down.

 

I'll simply never understand why people don't take more advantage of these systems.

Since I do know Cedar Point had a ride called Shoot-the-Rapids prior to the new one, and then they built the new one, maybe this new dark ride will be like the Pirate Ride shown in the video? Actually that would be really cool if they did that.

I got Fast Lane last season during the early summer when the park wasn't too crowded yet and had the chance to ride Millennium Force 12 times before someone in the normal line rode it once. People really should buy this when visiting any Cedar Fair park (besides your home park), especially at Cedar Point!

^ The merge point is different this year for MF! You now merge at the base of the ramp leading to the station, with the "regular line"! So you might only get 6 to 1 now

 

Maverick's FL line enters the queue building right by the Antique cars and uses the left side of the stairs and the regular line uses the right, and you merge at the top of course.

 

I plan on getting FL+ at Kings Island next year since I have never been!

Absolutely. I'm flying from California to visit CP on 9/8 (I know I know, WCB..arg!), which I've been told is one of the deadest days of the year, but like you say, I'm only going to be there one day, and the park is open short hours that day, so I figure even if there's 15 minute waits I'm still gonna buy the FLP to play it safe and turn it into 0 minute waits, cause it will be quite a while before I get a chance to come back

 

(I also took it to another level by buying a platinum pass to get an extra hr in the morning and booking an early enough flight that I can drive straight from the airport and sneak in some night rides the night before!)

Exactly. Erik and I bought Fast Lane Plus for the first day of our visit there in early June and got in all the coasters and re-rides we wanted easily, then took a more leisurely pace the second day without Fast Lane.

A very bad animation of what happen to StR last week.

This video is freaking AMAZING for all the wrong reasons! Their channel is filled with these bizarre videos of random news stories. I'm assuming they must have some Chinese 3D studio whipping up these awful videos for pennies. Good thing, though, because they are for our entertainment!

 

If it wasn't for these videos being so insanely wrong on so many levels, they would be some of the best coaster videos ever produced!
