Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

OK these are freaking cool. https://cedarpointonlineshop.com/

Made it out to Cedar Point this past weekend, October 17th-18th with my mom and dad to visit my sister working at the park. My sister works at Dorney, but since they closed early, a bunch of full time

Anybody with some experience be able to tell me how busy it might be on opening day? I made my first trip ever just a few months ago and had a BLAST! Even though I live in Texas, I'm picking up a season pass for Cedar Fair parks and traveling to King's Dominion, Cedar Point twice, Canada's Wonderland, and King's Island. But I'm most interested in opening day at Cedar Point at the moment. Thank you!

Here is a video I made over the summer. Please let me know how it is.

**Before you comment asking why I didn't film Gatekeeper, the reason there is no Gatekeeper footage is because on the day I filmed towards the front of the park Gatekeeper was down. It was one of the three days in a row that it was down.**

Great video, one of the best videos I have seen of Cedar Point!

 

The only thing that could make it better is if you included some shots besides rides, but other than that, perfect

^^^ Very nicely done! Brings back memories of summer and my 1 and only visit to the Point. It was for Coastermania and that weekend. That was the "suck weekend" with the park closed Saturday (I did get 4 rides in) and Sunday for the water main break!

How many days did it take you to film it?

With all those cool shots, it must have taken you a couple days to film it.

 

It took two days worth of filming to get all the shots. I wanted to film a third day to include Gatekeeper but unfortunately it didn't happen.

^I have no idea what you're talking about here, but I presume that it's the conversion of Mantis, a stand-up coaster, into a floorless, sit-down coaster. To my knowledge, this is the first time this has been attempted.

^ The only possible thing I can think of that they may be referring to is Vampire's conversion from the Arrow suspended trains to Vekoma's floorless trains, but still that is different from a stand-up to floorless conversion and I wouldn't really have counted it as the UK's "floorless coaster" either since then we'd be counting all the inverted coasters.

The "Good Time Theater" is closing for "future expansion":

 

https://www.cedarpoint.com/blog-article/online-fun/The-Curtain-Closes

 

We’ve just announced that over the winter months, we’ll be removing the Good Time Theatre from the park. We can’t tell you all the details, but we’ll need that space for future expansion. Originally opened in 1975 as the Cedar Point Cinema featuring IMAX movies, it was converted into The Good Time Theatre in 2002 with the debut of “Snoopy Rocks! On Ice.”

That's potentially huge news... the removal of that building frees up an expansion area about the size of Mantis if you assume they'll either build over or remove the Turnpike cars (very likely since they have 2 other car rides) and you factor in (maybe) Wildcat's now mostly empty pad. All of these things are right next to each other.
