Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a trip to CP on Saturday, and just got an email about "Point Fest." Has anyone been there during that? How much of a sh#tshow should I be anticipating? I'm hesitant to pre-purchase Fastlane because of weather, and would really appreciate any information.

 

Thanks!

 

I was there last year and I didn't even realize it was going on(forgot to check the website). I got on most of the coasters and only rilized what was going on when in I could see it in line for Gemini.

 

Hmmm...what was the weather like when you went last year?

 

We have camped in Camper Village during Point Fest at least twice. The first time was back in '09 and the photo below is what the parking lot looked like from the Space Spiral.

 

The next time we went during Point Fest (about three years ago), we went to Put In Bay on Saturday and then came back to find the park packed once again - even though the concert had already started.

 

My advice to Magnum Freak would be to have the cash (or credit card) handily available for FL if needed, or visit on Friday night or Sunday. The weather looks like it's going to be decent (albeit cool) on Saturday so that could bring out the large crowds for the concert and the first weekend of Halloweekends.

Packed parking lot.

Is there a reason pointcast isn't held on the luminosity stage? Would it block up the midway or something along those lines? (A couple of the artists are pretty well known, especially Newsboys)

 

Also, do you think that This guy might be the opener?

That midway is too small for a large concert like Point Fest. I think they learned that when they had Carly Rae Jepsen play in 2012 when the only easy way from let's say Dragster to Millennium was to walk around the back of the park.

Crazy thought: What if Cedar Point puts new trains on Mantis and renames it Cavalier - Then they theme each of the three trains to one of the Cavalier's star players Lebron, Kevin Love, and Kyrie Irving. If they were to put vest restraints on the trains, they could easily make them look kinda like Basketball Jerseys.

Why bother.

I think after all the potential copyright and trademark issues that could encountered with the "King James" coaster promise, Cedar Point is silently distancing themselves from that shenanigan. Perhaps whomever manages their social media , got a stern talking to once it was realized the commotion they caused through such a promise that can't be afforded or practically followed through on. Us Cleveland Sports die-hards can get a little too excited when our teams show signs of hope, and catching onto the LeBron James free agency saga like Cedar Point did is a good example of it

I originally didnt like the refurbishing of mantis because I thought they could perhaps put a dark ride in there and retheme the area being a central part of the park. But whispers are saying floorless with over_the_shoulder restraints. 3 apparently random small sections of launches. With expansion and intertwining with millennium force on the island. Cedarpoint has been my home park since 1975 and im really hoping that they will keep trying to lead the industry in inovation and keeping a wonderful atmosphere for years to come.

By far the most ridiculous comment I've ever read in this thread. If that was their "plan", they might as well just tear the thing down and build it from the ground up.

 

I seriously hope that they are just scrapping Mantis. The layout sucks anyways, and sit down trains won't change that. Sure, the clues are pointing to a sitdown conversion, but Tony could just be trying to throw us off.

I think that if Mantis does indeed convert to a sitdown or floorless coaster, the word " Mantis" will not be used at all in the new name because they are saying that Mantis is going to get "squashed", and that just doesn't make it seem that they would continue Mantis theming. But that's just my opinion.

 

Also, I really hope that they don't rename it "King James" because it's starting to sound really cheesy and stupid. I could live with it being called "The King", but "King James"? Please no.

I actually really like this idea! It would be a clever spin on the whole ordeal. If it gets to costly, I'm sure they could just get rid of the theme and keep calling it Cavalier. They could do the same with "The King," though, and that's probably the name I'm rooting for.

 

Aside with Hookers on Meth 145, I mean.
