Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I've been on Sheikra, which apparently a similar experience, but whateves.

 

Raptor would definitely be better though, and I haven't been on GateKeeper so I can't say much for that, but it seems floorless Mantis would be in the middle.

 

At the end of the day, it's only a matter of opinion, so it's what you think of the ride, not what others think.

Having ridden all three, I would say that, in terms of intensity, Mantis is in the middle.

Ah! The 2000th page of this thread! I'm pretty sure you will all agree with my mini list. For this and next year.

 

Best Cedar Point B&Ms 2014

1. Raptor

2. GateKeeper

3. Mantis

 

Best Cedar Point B&Ms 2015

1. Unknown Floorless Coaster.

2. Raptor

3. GateKeeper

 

The 2015 list is official IF Mantis gets flooless trains and a retheme!

 

Can't see any Floorless being better than any old school B&M Invert. B&M Invert's is the company's strongest design IMO.

I went to the Hexed preview event at Cedar Point on Friday for the first night of HalloWeekends. Armed with my new DSLR, I tried my best at taking some creepy pictures of all the screamsters. The new maze this year was Hexed which is next to GateKeeper, a bewitching adventure through the witch's lair. I was sort of underwhelmed by this one to be honest. Visually it was great and there were some cool illusions, but it had no finale or real wow factor. The other new thing at HalloWeekends is the Tombstone Terror-Tory scare zone near Maverick. Pretty fun to walk through and see others getting scared. So here's a little taste of HalloWeekends this year.

HalloWeekends at Cedar Point can only mean one thing, pumpkins everywhere!

Hexed is the newest maze at Cedar Point, you can get a nice view of GateKeeper since it's built in the backstage area

Ah! The 2000th page of this thread! I'm pretty sure you will all agree with my mini list.

 

I don't know about that. I think Mantis with floorless trains would be a lot of fun but I'm sure Raptor would still be lightyears ahead of it. Personally I love Gatekeeper despite the amazing amount of hate that it gets so I have a hard time believing Floorless Mantis would be better than that either though many people would probably disagree with me on that.

 

I love Gatekeeper!!! Throw the same ride into another park and it wouldn't get near the hate. However, I think thats a back-handed compliment to CP that everyone expects the best.

I would take take Mantis in its current state over gatekeeper! Thats just me. GK is super smooth and a very pretty ride. Just doesn't do it for me. Raptor hands down is the best B&M at CP

 

 

Srs? I'd rank GateKeeper above Raptor, and I'd put it just behind Millenium Force & forth overall at the park.

 

That first drop is quite intense, and fun. The seating arrangements are unique to the park, and fun. The keyholes are fun. The weightlessness you get on the slow role on the way back is unique to the ride. Overall, it's a FUN (did I say that enough?) ride that I couldn't get enough of on my last trip to the park. I love the capacity too.

Really? Raptor is my favourite ride at the park (I did not get to ride Maverick) with TTD coming second and MF third. Then gatekeeper. It's not bad, it's rather fun, actually. But not very intense and that ending is terrible. However, I think the worst thing for me was how it seemed to rattle if you sat in the outside seats (which I always do) from the 3rd or 4th row back. The restraints do not help either. Yeah, but that's my opinion.

I'm starting to feel a vertical rattle on GateKeeper. A year old, and it's getting a rattle?

That can't be good for Gatekeeper!

I rode it last year and already felt it. (closer to the back it was pretty nasty)

Banshee has been rattling since opening day near the back of the train. I don't think it's a big deal. A lot of the newer B&M coasters are doing that.

See I would put Raptor behind Maverick. Number 1 would be maverick, then number 2 Raptor, MF, TTD, so on and so on

I think I'd do Millennium Force, Maverick, Raptor, Gatekeeper, Dragster and then go from there with Mantis finishing dead last by an enormous margin. It's the only coaster in the park that I don't enjoy at all. Mean Streak is a decent ride... nothing special but if you lean forward in your seat it's very smooth this year.
