Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

P. 2017: Top Thrill Dragster RETIRED!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

Personally, I almost always go to Cedar Point for two days. So, when I stay on site and get early entry, I prefer to do Maverick the first day and Millennium the second. If you're only going one day, you can't go wrong with either one of these choice since they are the best use of your time before the running of the bulls. If you plan to do Maverick instead, park at the resort parking lot next to Challenge park.

 

To add to this, the wait on Maverick is almost always a walk on during Early Entry while Millennium is about a 10-15 minute wait.

It looks like I'll be going to Cedar Point in a few Thursdays!!! I looked on their website and they have a Platinum Pass ERT on Maverick that night. How long do those usually last and how busy do those ERT's get?

Where is the best place to find discounted tickets for cedar Point. I'm going this Wednesday and Thursday.

 

The Meijer (a nicer, Mid-western Walmart) on Route 250 sells all day tickets for $49.99 plus tax. They also sell the Ride & Refresh Ticket (Admission & Unlimited Coke Beverages) for only $51.99 plus tax. You can also buy a 2 day ticket for $88.99, give or take a dollar.

You'll get a ton of rides in. Last year we were there for Maverick ERT one night, it lasts an hour and starts as soon as the line runs out. At the start of ERT you might wait 15 minutes or so but if you stick it out to the end you might be able to stay on the train and re-ride a few times. It really fizzles out.

l've been on every ride in the park except Mean Streak, Corkscrew and Ninja and haven't spotted one employee jerking around. Three trains on MF, 6 trains on Maverick and launching TTD up and over like a well oiled machine. And sorry guys but compared to Kings Dominion, CP has some great theming!

 

Didn't know CP relocated Ninja from SFMM. Awesome!

 

LOL. SFMM didn't move Ninja. The ride you're thinking of is Iron Dragon (and compared to Ninja, I find to be very boring)

 

I think he was just talking about how TBpony414 said "Ninja" originally...

I'm thinking Dive coaster as well with the station and entrance near Blue Streak where the turnpike cars used to be. I'm also hopeful that in 2017 maybe we'll see that dark ride in the spot where the pirate area used to be and boom the whole Blue Streak area got a huge upgrade. Hey I can dream haha

Or a large interactive dark ride in the Colosseum building... I can dream too

Given the leaked info months ago, this build up is a bit anti-climatic for me... The past few leaks/spoilers have turned out all to be true (Banshee, Gatekeeper, Maverick, etc...). At this point, I am just waiting to see what the dive coaster layout looks like. The only surprise may be additional additions, such as another kiddy coaster or dark ride. However, a B&M dive is quite an expensive addition so I figure it will be something small if so.

 

I for one am very excited for it though, I love dive machines.

I think that is what comes with "big business". Such as having to copyright/license/trademark everything so nobody else can use it... Therefor, it goes public and with careful searching you can find the info. I doubt there is very little they can do to avoid this.

 

As far as the layout, blue prints, etc... That is tough as well. It's not like just B&M and top CP executives see it prior to announcement... Multiple companies are involved for quote such as vendors used by B&M, construction contractors, art etc... All it takes is one person to take a photo of the print or leak info from the drawings and its all over the internet. It's hard to keep everything a secret anymore.

 

CP doesn't "allow" it on purpose (well, you would think not), but it happens.

Not everyone lives on coaster boards. The general public have no idea that the name has been discovered and they will eat up the upcoming teaser campaign. You have to remember that there are more than just coaster nerds visiting the parks. Even though we like to think that we are the majority, we really are the minority of those that visit parks

This is true. Some times we get so caught up in coaster boards that we forget that there is the GP out there that has no idea what is going on, and will eat up the teaser campaign, and the announcement.

I have given up hope that it is anything else but a dive machine. It will be good whatever it is. I really hope they don't use valravn or whatever. Personally I think that is a terrible name. No one knows what Rougarou is unless they're one of us or they googled it. Which I really think is a pain. Rougarou I only like because it is catchy and fun to say but valravn just sounds bad. It is going to be so mispronounced I can already feel it. While I know that is probably what the name is going to be, I really cant stand it.

Notice I said "for me". Not speaking for the general public or anything, it is a given that "they" are still in the dark. Just for me, the excitement is a bit less already knowing what is expected, layout aside. I look forward to seeing that though.

I personally think VALRAVN is a great name. Yeah its a little out there, but it kinda reminds me of darkness among other things. It's an intimidating name for sure. And I personally think that's a good think. If the coaster goes into a tunnel, and has a ton of sweeping, flying turns, then it fits even better.

I couldn't agree more. Think god CP never got into the Superman, Batman, or related character names.
