My previous post should have been worded better.

 

 

 

I hate to be a backseat moderator, but come on, dude. How about you let others discuss what they'd like to discuss, and you keep your rules to yourself. If people want to speculate (as enthusiasts always do), they can speculate. It's not your call to say when it's "too early" to discuss something.

 

I'm sorry for having a differing opinion.

Back on topic: I personally feel I'd ride a dive coaster more frequently (as I've ridden them and know what to expect) rather than Gatekeeper (which I've also ridden, to utter disappointment). Wing riders just don't do it for me.

 

As a front seat moderator we don't mind the discussion although it is illogical to debate the merits of an existing coasters versus a non-announced coaster. Unless that unannounced coaster is at BGW.

Good to know. Any other opinions here on wing rider vs dive coasters?!

 

and I didn't even get on any coasters last season, so my mind is utter mush at this point.

Cedar Point needs to do something about it's food offerings. Besides the franchises it's brought in (Chickie and Pete's, Famous Daves, TGI Fridays, Chick Fil A, Pinks and Boardwalk Fries) the food is all amazingly bad. I know Midway Market has it's fans but that's just crappy picnic grove food and I don't know what anyone sees in the place.

 

I love this park but the food selection needs serious help.

I liked Chickie and Pete's at Cedar Point but for some reason I found the food (especially the crab fries) to be much better at Dorney. Then again we usually drop a good hundred bucks at the one at Dorney and the majority of that is on drinks so maybe my judgement is a little off when I go there.

 

Drunk Jojo rolls are the best Jojo rolls.

Chickie and Pete's has a bathroom still, and I actually liked the food I had and it's way better than most places at the park.

 

The bathroom is not for the public anymore. My daughter had to go in the middle of our meal, and tried to use it but a staff member told us it was no longer a bathroom and that the closest one was at the arcade. The same thing happened to a friend of mine at the restaurant as well.

 

The food was horrid. We ate there twice....once we got the pizza and it was nothing but pizza sauce, and the other time we got the philly steak and it was dry as can be. The fries were good, but not worth the $9 they are asking for them.

Love Cedar Point, haven't been since summer Maverick opened.

 

Had an opportunity to go last Summer, but skipped out. Gatekeeper looks like an average B&M that meanders through the course. Was not interested in taking a day to make the trek out to the park. Although if a quality dive coaster gets installed in the next couple years, that may change my opinion.

As of late, I only ride Gatekeeper in the back. The first drop is pretty forceful, and the immelman too. I enjoy both of those a lot. The two zero G rolls surve a purpose of being weightless, not forceful. The dive loop can be meh. All in all I don't think it's bad. I really enjoy it and I'll go on it probably two or three times I go to the park. I just don't wait over 30 minutes for it lol

I have ridden gatekeeper about 8 times. four in front and four in back. both sides twice. Back makes the ride a lot better. I would much rather just ride an invert. GK is graceful and smooth and beautiful, Its a solid coaster, though I found it kind of boring. All in all not bad. Id take raptor or Maverick any day of the week over it. Hopefully wingriders fizzle out and don't pop up at every park because there really are better choices out there

The guys at coaster-net made a recent video mentioning that at last year's tour, Tony Clark hinted about a big announcement of sorts (or maybe just teasers) for 2015's winter chill out. Very intriguing considering all the recent developments at Cedar Point. If you could get any info on this, that would be awesome. Thanks!
