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

Recommended Posts

No water rides yet.

 

And the same thing I posted previously happened AGAIN on Wicked Twister. Except this time no line jumping pass.

 

 

No water rides yet?

 

I am kinda surprised that they don't have at least 1 open. Kings island has had there water rides open since opening day.

Also I met another TPR member - DBRU on Magnum. He's a supervisor and was working the ride this morning. Nice guy with good hustle, and even smiled while he was working. I got 12 on her today! No waiting in the morning.

 

Things are looking up at the Point from my perspective!

 

Thanks for the kind words, Ed! It was nice to meet you and I look forward to seeing you around this season.

If you think Magnum is rough or uncomfortable, particularly on the airtime hills, just tighten your seatbelt as tight as you can. That's seriously the secret to making this ride incredible and thigh pain-free. Magnum is my favorite coaster at CP and this is why!

 

This post is from January but I'm replying to it now because I finally tried it yesterday. I'm still in disbelief.

 

I always wanted to like this ride but never could because of how painful it is. I never understood why so many people spoke so highly of it because I could never enjoy it with the ridiculous thigh crushing lap bars but for the first time in at least 50 rides of me trying to like Magnum over the years I had an awesome ride on it!

 

Everyone needs to try this, it might be the single greatest piece of advice I've ever seen on this site. Magnum went from my least favorite hyper to one of my favorites immediately.

Really Coasterbill? I'm going to have to try that then. When I went last week, it wasn't just the airtime hills at the end that gave a thigh crush. We all know those are coming, but the majority of the ride felt a lot more rough at least to me than it usually does. I'll have to try this when I fly back up later this year. Thanks for the advice!

That is interesting information about the seal belts. While I have never had a problem riding Magnum, I have had others in my party mention the thigh crushing. I will make sure to mention that to them the next time we ride.

 

Not surprised by the water rides not being open. It has been quite cold here for the past four or five days and it's only 55 right now. Who in their right mind would want to ride Shoot The Rapids, Thunder Canyon or Snake River Falls when it's this cold? I'm surprised that Lake Erie doesn't have ice on it still!

One of my friends who works at Cedar Point told me that he overheard Rob Decker (Head of maintenance, i think?) talking about a dive coaster for next year, and it being the third tallest coaster in the park. Which agrees completely with the memo, but basically it's nothing new, could just be another rumor for the rumor mill. But personally I'll count it as semi-confirmed

Rob Decker designed Banshee and Fury 325. Isn't he the head of engineering or something for CF. This is pretty positive news if he did indeed say that.

Your friend? What does he do that he can hear someone that high up the food chain just saying willy nilly anything about 2016? Most of the time don't parks use code names for new major attractions. The only fact he heard while they were planning is that it would be the third tallest in the park? No Location? Name? Nothing New?

You would be surprised at just what the Suits and Silver Tags talk about in front of Seasonal Employees about future additions, and most of them I heard while working there were built.

Hey guys thought I'd share a mini trip report and photos from the Brew and BBQ festival I attended yesterday. It was a great event at Cedar Point and an amazing way to escape kids and noise on a very busy weekend.

I've arrived at the Point for a beautiful weekend!

Flowers are finally planted. The season began with this being a plot of dirt.

Take your pick.

Great Lakes is a local favorite.

Yuengling another favorite in the area.

There was a band playing during the event.

And then this is the view you get while tasting your beers.

This is how the event worked. 1 ticket either got you a 4 oz sample of beer or a small food plate. 3 tickets got you a full beer or a full plate. Awesome way to give plenty of choice to guests.

Some of the breweries even had stickers and pins they were giving out.

And for a break from the action we checked out the All Wheels Extreme show featuring selfie sticks this year. #noselfiesticks

Always a high action show.

So long from the Point!

Brew and BBQ was a great event and it's also running next weekend! If you're a fan of craft beer don't miss it! It's only $15 with park admission and $55 if you don't have admission into park. You are provided with 15 sample tickets to do with what you want. If you're getting beer that's $1 for 4 oz, a great deal inside an amusement park. Sadly I didn't grab any pictures of the food since the line was long and we have the dining plan on our pass. We just decided to drink our way through.
