All I can think is that they hosted a lot of corporate events on Fridays, or why would they give up the revenue from the GP? Hopefully someone in the know will speak up. It is puzzling.

Up this week is Castle Park where I briefly ducked in one night to find all of the rides closed. For all you Chance Fireball (Six Flags) enthusiasts out there...

Here's part 1 of a look at Cedar Point in 2003 when Top Thrill Dragster was the new hotness as the world's tallest and fastest coaster on the planet!

It still boggles my mind, that the height of Blue Fall drop tower in Japan,

is the same height, if not slightly shorter, as Top Thrill Dragster?

 

It still freaks me out, I have not been on this, sooner!

 

Great share, Mark!

And now a more modern look at BGW in the mid-2000's era...

 

Hey look, Batman The Ride at BGW. Ninth picture from the bottom. Goes to show how early the pamphlets are made up.

 

Ha Ha Ha...why so serious? (j/k)

Thanks Bill...Blue Fall really was great. So amazingly tall! Just imagine about another 100 feet added to it for TTD.

That's really neat how they referenced Gemini, Magnum, and Millennium Force with those height/speed numbers.

Wow at the car trains on Thunder Road at Carowinds! Wow! Never seen that before. The Powder Keg flume looked great as well. I miss that park, I need to go back! I remember seeing those original TTD cards. Ahh, takes me back.

I used to order, and recieve in the snail mail packets for Cedar Point, from the park to where you could stay....

Their main magazine was so cool, with coupon entry offers for a great visit there.They really were and still

are I percieve about their park and it's importance in the Ohio economy, strong on this principle. To the present day. I really wish I could visit this park, some day, while I still can, ay my age.

Jumping ahead a few years to 2010, and CP has downsized their Getaway Guide considerably, but at least you still get a lot of great coupons inside...
