Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Looks like both Jason and Tony are hyping the "witness history" thing a little more. I'm gonna try to be there to see!

 

I'd die of laughter if "witness history" was a tie-in with Lebron again. Remember the uproar when they announced their partnership last year with the Lebron James Foundation?

It will be interesting to see how they pull off a vertical loop with such wide trains

 

It would just have to be a really wide loop!

 

^^I'm voting the tallest, fastest, LONGEST, and most inversions on a dive machine. Those four world records all seem VERY doable for a new Cedar Point coaster.

 

 

Not only do they seem very doable... They very much so seem like something Cedar Point would do. I sure hope your guess is right!!! That would be a hell of a ride!

Are the trains that much wider than Wing Riders? Thunder Bird has a vertical loop.

 

Yes, and substantially. They hang 3 seats on each side off of the already much wider track.

I'm gonna be there too! So pumped!

Seriously though, I'm super excited for the idea of a dive coaster, as they are one of B&M's best designs to me.

That being said, I'm half expecting Cedar Point to throw a huge curveball and announce a new dark ride or something similar.

^ Personally I would HATE to see a launched Dive Coaster. To me part of a Dive Coaster is the slow climb up the lift hill. It builds the anticipation knowing that every foot you climb is a foot you're going to be falling straight down (Not counting pullout obviously.) Launching into a holding brake not only kills the pace of the ride, but it kills the anticipation factor.

 

IMO: A launch on a Dive Coaster defeats the point of a Dive Coaster, unless it's a Mid-course launch like Maverick, and doesn't launch into a holding brake.

Given how tall they're wanting to make the ride, I don't think this would be feasible, but I think it would be cool to see some type of launch on a dive coaster at some point. Something like this:

Wow. The first element on that coaster looks freaking awesome. Even if it wasn't on a dive coaster, I'd love to see an element like that built one day.

To me it just looks like someone took half of a giant corkscrew, and mixed it with half of an inline twist.

That may be the case, but it still looks awesome.

I have a feeling your wish will be granted when CW gets their next coaster. Could totally see something like that being built in the former stand up's spot.

 

As for CP, I believe they'll be going for either height or speed, plus Agee new elements.

Well CP, you're up! How do you figure to top THAT Dollywood announcement!

 

In all seriousness, I have no doubt they'll put in an awesome coaster, if that is indeed what it is. However, I still think they should have gotten their announcement in before Dollywood, to get a week or two "in the sun" before Dollywood "stole their thunder" (with Lightning! .)

^Don't forget, if things stand true to the "leaked plans", it will also feature a "Worlds First". World's first Vertical Loop on a Dive Coaster. And wouldn't longest drop on a Dive Coaster count as a record too?

 

Anyway, exciting times ahead. Tis the season!

Speaking of which, am I the only one who's laughing because loops have been on diving machines on RCT for YEARS? I mean, RCT2 was in development when loops first started on wooden coasters, so they put them in everything.
