Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

My guess re: removal of the good tine theater would be for a dark ride, a la wonder mountain guardian and iron reef.

 

I like that idea

 

Same but what if the removed the commons and rerouted that perimeter road? The park would have a lot of space to build a new GCI or B&M.

 

If they put in a Triotech dark ride, then I think they should put it in the old pirates building.

I thought the building was partially taken over by a restaurant. Is there enough room in the old building?

 

Yes, Chickie's & Pete's (formerly Game Day Grill) took over a portion of the ride area, but I believe the rest of the building is prop storage for Halloweekends. The dark ride could fit back into that building, but knowing Cedar Point, I'm expecting the dark ride to have a thrill factor slightly higher than Guardian, but themed near the level of Voyage, so it really wouldn't fit in the building if they're planning the dark ride/roller coaster hybrid again.

When CP announced the new atered events area by Breakers my first impression was they were getting rid of the Point Pavilion catered area by the main gate, which is behind Raptor but the more I thought about it the Pirate Ride building is too small for someone like Triotech to work with plus you couldn't really expand it with Raptor and its queue behind the building.

 

The Coliseum is very under-utilized other than the massive aracde on the ground floor but the only use I can see the second floor be used for is a ride like Kennywood's Ghostwood Estate (a Great Pumpkin dark ride perhaps that would appeal to families with gentle scares than the all out creepiness of Ghostwood). Then the question is where would the queue fit since Kiddieland is right there on one side and Planet Snoopy on the other side.

 

The Good Time Theater/Turnpike Cars area is a nice plot of land and I'd hate to see it all used for one large adark ride.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing Kiddie Kingdom get shuffled around a bit - move the Carousel to Frontiertown and then move the kiddie rides to the east side of the Coliseum where Chaos used to be. It would open up a nice chunk of land along the main midway to be re-landscaped.

I'm not minimizing the value of the Kiddie Kingdom area for families with young children. However, it looks like crap and the rides can be moved with minimum difficulty to another part of the park.

That was my thinking also, but I never really paid attention to the size of the building.

Here's what my idea for Cedar Point to do with Kiddy Kingdom, move all the kiddie rides to Camp Snoopy and move the carousel to Frontiertown. That would free up some space for Cedar Point to build a small family dark ride for Planet Snoopy themed around "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" special.

This might be a long shot, but does anyone here know where I can find one of those desktop Millennium Force displays? I saw the park made some back like 5 years ago. I wasn't aware of them because I hadn't visited the park ever until this past season. I want one lol But the park doesn't make them anymore and I can't find any on like Ebay or anywhere. Any idea where I can find one or if anyone wants to sell one that's in decent shape?

Last I checked they were available on the Cedar Point Marketplace on their website. Let me go check if they're still there.

 

 

*Edit: They don't appear to be. Good luck finding one, I want one too! Maybe there are a few left in the gift shops?

Unfortunately I haven't seen them there, maybe I've been looking in the wrong spot lol

^Are you by chance confusing the carousel directly inside the entrance area with the carousel in the middle of Kiddie Kingdom? Why not Frontiertown, which used to have a carousel way back when (and I believe was moved to Dorney).

 

Actually Kiddie Kingdom's carousel would make a nice addition to Frontier Trail either in the MF area or closer to Thunder Canyon/Shoot The Rapids/Petting Farm.

They use the roundhouse in Frontier Town for a haunted walk-through during Halloweekends (the Asylum, or the Eternity Infirmary as it's called now, I believe). It's been quite awhile since I've gone during the regular season, but I would think they leave all the props and maze in there during the year. Were they to move this carousel, do you think they'd build another roundhouse or move the one it's currently occupying?

 

Additionally, where will Midnight Syndicate perform next year? We saw their show this past September and really enjoyed it.

I could see an entirely new structure built to house the carousel if they were to decide moving it.

 

Didn't get to experience Haunt this year but have read a lot of good things about the Midnight Syndicate show. Jack Aldrich Theater may be a bit small for that type of show yet it's bigger than the other venues the park has (Red Garter Saloon, Lusty Lil's).

Cedar Point could do a "Ghost tour" in the roundhouse instead of a maze of sorts. It would be new to Cedar Fair, because I don't think they do "Ghost" Tours at cedar fair parks. I did do a "Ghost" tour when I visited London, and its actually a common attraction there. It would probably more geared towards families. Just a thought.
