Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Fast Lane plus at Cedar Point is well worth it. I go to Cedar Point a lot and have only done Fast Lane once but it was the best and most relaxing trip we had. Walking on Maverick three times in a row with it having over an hour wait was an awesome feeling.

Looks great. I wonder if Cedar Point is happy with the paint job? The rails look awfully worn already.

 

I actually don't think they painted over the worn parts on the rails. If you watch the first Rougarou File they released last fall you notice the painters avoided the worn areas. Here is a link to the clip.

This would make sense as they painted the worn areas on Millennium Force and paint was stripping off those areas very soon into that season.

Look at at the 1:50 mark, they are painting the rails and "worn areas." The paint didn't have as much time to set then it might usually have. Mantis was still in operation every weekend while they painted.

Possibly. If you look at the 2:05 mark you see the painters clearly avoiding the worn areas. Regardless I don't believe Cedar Point will be upset with the paint job.

So I wonder what CP is going to do with all the spare parts from Mantis' trains. Six Flags could probably use them for RR, GS, and GL

 

or the other 2 B&M standups in the cf chain

I appreciate your cynicism but the stand-ups in the Six Flags chain are much more similar to Mantis than Vortex etc;

The trains themselves, except for the lead cars (one went to the roller coaster museum, one CP will use for HalloWeekends, not sure about #3) were actually scrapped. Generic B&M parts were kept, but everything else metal was sent to the scrap yard. So if anything, there really isn't any spare parts that could be sent out to other parks/rides.

Me too! I'm also from the UK and it's my first ever trip to Cedar Point. I'm scared of how long the queues are going to be though with it being memorial day weekend...

 

I went in the middle of Summer on the last week of July for 2 days on the Wednesday and Thursday (the only week I could get off and fly from Korea) for what was probably my only ever trip and this was before fast-plus+ and we still managed to get almost everything done using the second day to hit Maverick in the morning (we missed it the second day) the water park and re-rides on most of the major coasters. Although it helped I had friends who had been before and knew the crowd. When I saw Raptor with almost a 2 hour line and Mantis with a huge line, I thought i'd have to make a few tough decisions on what I'd miss out of due to time but my friends knew when to go back to find them practically walk-on even in summer. So i'd assume with fast pass + you'll have no problems getting everything you want.

So Cedar Point filed a trademark application for the word "Valravn" this past week. It's a 'blanket application' covering amusement park rides, services, and all types of souvenirs, as is typical for their attraction trademarks.

 

 

Looking into the mythology of the word, it appears to be a supernatural Raven creature from Danish folklore. It actually has a pretty dark/scary story, and you can read all about it here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valravn

 

It's a pretty safe bet to assume this mark is intended for use at Cedar Point specifically, because it was filed by "Cedar Point Park" (like the application for Rougarou) and not by "Cedar Fair Management" (like the applications for Fury 325, Voyage to the Iron Reef , etc.).

 

Of course, whether or not they actually end up using the name is another story (*cough* Centurion *cough*), but these applications aren't free, so there's at least currently some intent to use it.

Oooh, interesting... I think that would be a pretty cool name for a coaster, and it fits in with the "mythical creatures" kick they seem to be on with GateKeeper and Rougarou.

 

And I know it's typical for these trademark applications to include this, but I find it somewhat hilarious in this case that it includes "plush toys" (and other kid stuff) when a Valravn is described as:

 

capable of turning into the form of a knight after consuming the heart of a child

 

and

 

a peaceless soul in search of redemption that flies by night (but never day) and can only free itself from its animal countenance by consuming the blood of a child.

 

All the kids will want one!

Could be a cool theme for a dark ride!

Just curious, what's the name of the website where I can find these trademark filings? (Sorry if it sounds like a dumb question.)

What's with them trying to pick names no one can pronounce, seriously do they expect people to say that? Anyway that seems like it fit perfectly for some haloween kinda thing but merchandise wouldn't happen with that. I'm almost leaning towards that as a dark ride than a dive machine just for the fact of it's creepyness. And am I the only one who would pay the park to trademark DiveHawk 232 just to see the reaction?

Gee, that's dark... Really dark... Almost... Too dark

 

*coug* Banshee *Cough*

 

Even worse, that leaves CW with the ever boring, un-intimidating name of "ziz" for their next coaster *sigh*

I actually like the name!! I can't wait to see the new (as we are all going to assume) Dive Machine. I feel given the name they could actually attempt some decent theming. . . Well... we can hope. I think the name fits in well with the Rougarou name.
