Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I wonder for going to see you complete re-design of the station since they have to take the roof off to put the new track in anyway...

 

If I'm not mistaken they repainted the station. I am assuming everything will be happening under the current station. Why go from above when there is so much room under the stations currently to just hoist up and install from there.

 

The track won't change, only maybe brakes, sensors, different mechanisms for locking and unlocking the harnesses, etc.

If we see any changes to the station, I hope for a bigger/longer station. However I am in agreement that we won't see anything change in size, other then the new roof and paint.

Smallish trip report.

 

Headed up to CP from Indy on Friday. I hadn't been in a couple of months, since I stopped smoking actually, for one last trip. It worked out that I was going for the final days of Mantis.

Last Stand for me

Mantis tattoo anyone?

 

Last train thru the loop.

 

Was a great weekend for sure. Sunday turned out to be the best day but the coldest. Thanks to Tony and all of the CP staff for an amazing weekend.

Mantis was my first, last, and only standup.

Same here! Unless I go to Carowinds & Kings Dominion. (Hopefully)

 

I rode shockwave at KD for the credit and accidentally punched myself in the face at one point. Add that to "The Nutcrackers" (the bicycle seats), and it was not worth it.

 

The more quickly stand up roller coasters die/leave/get converted... the better.

The best sentence in that blog "Oh, and you'll get an answer to that heartline question." I still wonder how the figured out to get it to work. I'm just assuming that because floorless trains sit higher it's the equivalent of standing up since stand up riders vary in heights anyways.

Mantis wasn't that bad of a stand-up, especialy if you compare it to Carowind's and CGA's Vortex. The only bad part was the twisty section after the mid-course and flatspin/corkscrew.

 

If B&M were to contimue making stand-ups like Georgia Scorcher, which is the best of the genre, then stand-ups don't necessarily need to disappear.

However you look at it, both hearltlines are at least approximate to each other or this probably wouldn't be happening.
