Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Like I said earlier regarding Mantis... we were there for 3 days this weekend, we rode every other adult coaster in the park multiple times including Corkscrew which we don't even like. Even though we knew Mantis might not be operating in it's current state after this year we still didn't ride it. It was horrible and I couldn't be happier to see it gone (well... as a stand up coaster).

I always thought the barrier to floorless trains on Mantis was that it was money being spent on a ride that couldn't be marketed as new. This actually makes me really happy - creates another high capacity, fun ride in the park where there was a slow loading rough one before. Also allows them the chance to have a "new" sit down looping coaster. This is good, even if it won't help my "coaster count".

I guess this means floorless conversion with a new theme...Rougaroo or whatever...

That name is terrible, please no.

 

It translates to a werewolf like creature. Could it be that the Mantis gets squashed by this creature?

 

I don't mind the name too much as it's not part of the cookie cutter names like SF does. At the end of the day though the name does not make the ride.

Wait a second. We're now defending stand-ups? I though we all hated them! Not that I disagree, but what the heck?

 

EDIT: Not that I've seen you guys perform a 180 on your general consensus before, but this is just day and night to me. Sometimes you all are a mystery.

Could Matt Ouimet be on a mission to rid all stand up coasters from Cedar Fair parks? Skyrider and Mantis are gone. Next up...Shockwave and both the Vortex coasters.

I would be totally fine with this mission.

 

 

I would not shed a single tear for Vortex @ CGA. We can only HOPE Matt will get rid of it.

I would be pretty disappointed if they took Mantis out completely. I really liked the layout, just not the whole standing up part. I guess we'll see later at some point.

 

And as for Vortex and Shockwave, I didn't think Shockwave was all that bad, neither was Skyrider. Vortex at Carowinds was a pretty awful experience though.

You know, this is really cleaver marketing. They are essentially faking the death of the ride, forever. Next year it will have new colors, new trains and a new name. The GP will think it is "NEW" without a hefty price tag. I also would like to see them change the ride environment a bit too. There were rumors of the second half of the original ride being "Indoors" but due to the ride going overbudget that got canned. Could they revisit this now with a total rebrand of the ride? (One can only hope)

 

But who knows, maybe we are looking too far into this video and it will be gone. ANYTHING can happen at this point!
