Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Just watched the Rougarou POV video alongside the Mantis POV...it seems so much faster!

Also, I'm just a little bit disappointed with the theme work done to the ride..I figured that it would feature a wolf howl at the top like Banshee, and also hoped for a fog and light show over the whole ride in the evenings. Still looks great though!

3. What happened to the intamin inverts, was something recalled because last time I checked Volcano was still running and so where the V2's at Six Flags.

 

4. Do Mavericks new restraints stop you from getting airtime? The old ones didnt bother me.

 

I'm also curious about the intamin inverts. The discussion is around problems with Possessed at Dorney so maybe a quick internet search will clear that up.

 

As for Maverick's restraints, my thighs were always pushed down (and I'm not a large person) so that I never got "airtime" in the strict sense. The new soft shoulder harnesses won't change that part of the restraint. The sensation of popping up is fine for me, though, even if I don't actually leave my seat. I've yet to ride it with the new restraints but I'm heading up to the park next week Thursday. Hopefully the park is pretty empty; Maverick is my favorite coaster at CP and I hope to get multiple laps on it without FL.

Any further intel. on why MF recieved new fiberglass train bodies? Is there any precedence for that? (Were S:RoS's trains moved to fiberglass with the Bizarro transformation? I can't recall whether the ride received new trains entirely or just new restraints and on-board audio.) I never noticed how MF sported metal bodied trains whereas TTD's and Maverick's were fiberglass.

So what about the trim on the drop!?

 

 

^There is a testing video on YouTube where Tony Clark jokes about it but confirms it's not on. Rougarou is hauling with the hard wheels, too.

 

I appreciate your response! This makes me so happy! Lol

In the upcoming weeks I am planning on visiting Cedar Point. I was wondering what ride I should hit up first. I am staying at Breakers Express so I get to enter the park an hour early. I was thinking about heading right up towards Rougarou, but I figured that's where everyone would be going. Do you guys have any thoughts?

I know V2 at SFGAm is down too right now. Not sure about the California one though.

Um, I rode v2 yesterday with no issue... Might want to check your sources...

Interesting they went with fiberglass on MF. I'm not an expert and wont pretend to be, but typically fiberglass is heavier which can provide a smoother ride, also probably give MF a bit more giddy-up. Aluminium can take more punishment, but is more difficult to maintain, fiberglass is more flexible, but it's also a bit more expensive. So it seems like it's an investment into MF that could make a small difference in the ride experience in a positive direction.

Hey gang! Back again!

 

Outside of coasters (obviously) and most of the other big rides, are there are things that are can't miss opportunities? (an obscure small ride, or an especially tasty snack unique to the park?)

 

TIA

I'm not a fish fan myself but my wife is she noticed perch sandwiches. We also made a point of riding Cedar Downs Racing Derby. We had done the one at Rye Playland and Blackpool so got the set. I believe only 3 in the world!

 

Not been since 2001 looking forward to May 23rd!

Have you been to Cedar Point before? I ask because it's in your signature and your answer could help me give you a better answer. For now, I'll answer as if you haven't been to the park. Since you narrowed down the rides so much only a few things come to mind. The only ride that I would consider a can't miss opportunity is the Cedar Downs because it's one of two racing carousels in the U.S. I'm not a big fan of carousels, but Cedar Downs is pretty fun.

 

If you like to take pictures and or video then here are some can't miss picture opportunities. Rides I recommend are Sky Ride, Giant Wheel and the Cedar Point and Lake Erie Railroad. A non ride activity is a walk on lakefront path from Wicked Twister to Magnum. People get so occupied by everything inside Cedar Point that they forget about the lakefront. You will get some great views and it's a nice way to break up your day.

Lol I was updating my siggy for the first time in years earlier tonight and figured I may as well put CP in since I'll be there in a week, and likely won't update my profile for ages again.

Today is guaranteed to be a complete sh*t show at the park thanks to the wind forecast. It's better if we just accept this now instead of being surprised by it later on when the trip reports bashing the park start showing up around the internet.

As others have said, Cedar Downs.

 

I also never go without riding the skyride and Troika

dippindotsguy8 is right... you should ride the Sky Ride. Not riding the Sky Ride is bad, and that makes you a bad, bad person and you should feel bad.

 

Also, ride the train from the station near Mean Streak so you can ride though Boneville.
