Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Baron 1898 has the two rows of seven formation, and has an hourly theoretical capacity of 1000. Griffon has the three rows of ten formation, and has a theoretical hourly capacity of 1400.

 

B&M''s always have high capacity so you shouldn't worry about that at all.

Baron, oblivion (Gardaland) and krake not have carried 1,000 people per hour,

even if the operators caricassero trains at the speed of light

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

So basically there were about as many rides open as there would be in peak season with 15 mph winds.

anche se gli operatori caricassero i treni alla velocità della luce [/ quote] Sì, ma questi sono i treni più piccoli, sono sicuro punto di cedro avrebbe usato il più grande dieci attraverso treni ...

 

sure sure, I'm sure cedar point will use trains as of griffon, or perhaps even larger

I think a record breaking Dive Coaster (if that's what it is) would be great for the park seeing how there is only two other coasters like this in the US, which are no where near the park. We need more Dive coasters in the US...They're awesome rides. Just a prediction here but I feel Cedar Point gets the giant coaster in 2016 which will be a dive coaster. Kings Dominion will get the giant coaster in 2017 which will be a large launched wing coaster. Who knows about 2018...But I do believe this will be the year Cedar Point gets it's dark ride from Triotech. And if Six Flags puts two RMC's in per year in 2017, 2018, 2019...They'll be done with RMC which will leave Cedar Point clear to have RMC all to themselves in 2020...Which will be Mean Streaks year. I just personally believe Cedar Point has a great plan set for the next five years. 2016 - Coaster / 2017 - Waterpark addition / 2018 - Triotech / 2019 - Flat ride / 2020 - RMC...But that's just my opinion...Doesn't really matter what I think. Just fun to guess.

I would love a Dive Coaster. I thought Griffon was excellent-- loved the look of it, the drop under the bridge was fantastic, as was the inversion and the drop in the ravine. I had low expectations of Dive Coasters, and was really happily surprised by both Griffon and Sheikra.

 

If CP's Dive Coaster incorporates more elements like Baron and the one in Italy, then we are in for a great treat. The only concern will be capacity ( which I will avoid going into!) if they end up with the smaller trains, which I think they have to in order to be able to do Baron-like maneuvers (don't think the Griffon train can do many maneuvers).... although I am sure CP will figure out a way to get lots of capacity out of it.

Agreeing with everyone who likes dive coasters. Sheikra is a really great ride and Cedar Point will obviously just make one better.

 

On a side note, I finally got home from my impromptu CP trip Saturday and bought the Nanocoaster from the Pagoda Gift Shop. It looks really great on a desktop! image.thumb.jpeg.9ff9b6e387abf04216102741fb147576.jpeg

So, and this is probably a dumbass question, but how much building/assembly goes into it?

I love how suddenly everyone is all "OMG! I can't wait for the Dive Machine at Cedar Point. It is going to be such a great ride. It's going to be such a great fit for the park. I love the colors." When... earlier everyone was "Omg, I can't believe Cedar Point is getting a Dive Machine... Dive Machines suck. They are so boring, so forceless, not record breaking enough. The colors are ugly. It's not going to stand out. " I spent pages trying to convince people that Dive Machines are actually really good coasters, and everyone fought me on it, and now everyone is all for the Dive Machine.

That is awesome! Makes me wish I had found that one in the shop to buy for me.

Hey, it got the Alvey seal of approval. Everyone has to be on-board now.

Now hang on a second here... Just because I said I have liked *ONE* B&M Dive Machine (and it's clones), isn't necessarily the "Alvey seal of approval." I will say that I have much better hope for a B&M Dive Machine to be something cool versus my initial thoughts on Gatekeeper. That being said, would I rather it be some sort of crazy RMC re-do of Mean Streak or a "WTF is that crazy thing" Intamin that we knew nothing about? You bet.

 

But the way things are lining up, I'd be "ok" to "pleasantly happy" with a Dive Machine if it's on par or better than SheiKra.

 

That's all I said.

I wonder if there is any significance to the date being presented also in Roman Numerals.

 

Plot twist! It's a B&M Dive Coaster named Centurion!

Maybe Tony specifically made them take the name out as Cedar Point to confuse us. Valran will go to another park and then Centurion from Carowinds(wait right?) actually goes to CP.

They're just now praying to the coaster gods that the b&m track doesn't get shipped north of the border.

 

Don't worry... Either way, the complaining will start up very soon once again. Either "why didn't we get it?" If CW gets the coaster, or "Why a dive machine/this or that" if it's announced for CP.

Then the moment of truth happens and this is really just a dark ride, and everyone on the forum in unison screams NEWMAN!

Very easy assembly. You just punch/push out the metal parts from the tray and place them into the base in their respective slots. It took me roughly 15-20 minutes to carefully not bend any metal too far.
