Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 2017: Top Thrill Dragster RETIRED!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

^More paint is applied each week. Looking really good so far. It's pretty neat how the teal color of the supports appears to change color based on your proximity to the ride.

 

I must say, the coverage of this roller coaster repaint has to be the most in-depth I have ever seen. If I didn't know any better, I would think this is the first time a park ever decided to repaint a coaster based on all of the ridiculous amounts of painting analysis and speculation.

So, I know that MF was supposed to be built by B&M but they didn't want to go that high. But was Millie ever supposed to receive an inversion?

 

Since no one can genuinely, and respectfully, give you a response I will. I did a little research and found that in the original plans, the two year planning, there were rumors for a ten inversion coaster, a Morgan hyper, B&M and others. However, Intamin was the only one willing to go above 300 ft. As far as Millie ever having an inversion, I don't think there was ever plans for it to have an inversion. At least none of which I could find.

Thanks, for answering my question. Now, this thread has turned into a laugh fest. I asked a question. Back on topic.

Yes back on topic.

I heard in 1969 Cedar Creek Mine ride was originally supposed to feature 3 inversions including a vertical loop, Immelmann, and a zero-G stall. However Arrow chose to pass on that idea. Please confirm if you know anything regarding this.

Can confirm, am the vertical loop that didn't get installed. I was installed in Full Throttle instead.

I've heard that in 1987 Iron Dragon was to be the world's first suspended looping coaster with an loop and a double corkscrew, But Arrow wasn't really ready to put inversions on suspended coaster yet. Please confirm if you know anything regarding this.

The new colors are really cool.

A mix of yellow, purple, teal, and orange.

The paint job is looking very good! But please rotate your pictures next time

 

Hopefully, the trim brake removal happens. Either way, this is still going to be a great improvement!

 

I did rotate them but for some reason they didn't show up that way when I posted them. Oh well.

 

The colors really look great and I can't wait for this ride once it's done!
