NEW:Cedarpoint winter pictures and windseeker construction


Recommended Posts

Made another trip out to cedarpoint today for another offseason look at things. I was also able to grab some great shots of windseeker construction. I also have a few short videos that I will try to include.

 

This is actually the 2nd offseason trip I have made to the park this year. The first trip can be found here....

I tried to get shots of things I had missed in the first tour. Hope you enjoy.....

Not very deep.

1265379071_100_9607(Medium).jpg.79317825c2bd65d615c764db22aa63bc.jpg

Power tower is getting new cables, and there were spools of cable everywhere.

Power tower

1744633250_100_9609(Medium).jpg.d184dae591f3132c02412726c231f936.jpg

They really strip the ride down to it's bones.

107077325_100_9610(Medium).jpg.d7f4cf2347e0108c1d6bcc42d625810d.jpg

The ride is stripped down.

1433787101_100_9616(Medium).jpg.573350f1e1398a1fe084c68f8c64a468.jpg

Some kind of work was being done on corkscrew.

1568639325_100_9619(Medium).jpg.7c462d2ae228350ccccf992e18d0139a.jpg

Now let's take a look at dragster.

1882453161_100_9612(Medium).jpg.1aa0a3c5424535287bd8e445e9ae3404.jpg

There were no trains on the track yet, but the funny car was there all wrapped up.

1708993982_100_9617(Medium).jpg.37ad9dc01be4cfececb0023f763b5780.jpg

The midway in front of dragster was filled with piles of garbage cans.

1226868422_100_9620(Medium).jpg.6175a59deb8e4a4aa12a49b7d59fe1e4.jpg

Inside the station. Look at all those proxy sensors.

Looking down the return run.

688145315_100_9626(Medium).jpg.ad532d87c224be5c9afe93935cbc8306.jpg

Without the leaves on the trees, you could see a lot more than normal from dragster.

621875973_100_9631(Medium).jpg.219719546257e1a75911806bb4aa8cc2.jpg

On our way to dragsters tower, I got to walk under dragon iron.

504607339_100_9632(Medium).jpg.5154990c20424ba26f85b3137c07ae45.jpg

There was kinda a sidwalk under the ride.

1659242395_100_9630(Medium).jpg.9e1dc00497d9dfbd448fb896b08a8cb5.jpg

There is a maintanance road that goes under iron dragon, to dragster.

231484506_100_9633(Medium).jpg.29e42d54ff21902d86ac1b798fc9bd2e.jpg

763661823_100_9639(Medium).jpg.09b1ecbeba4927109624615b609f87a4.jpg

From this road, I was able to get right next to iron dragons turn around.

1776125628_100_9651(Medium).jpg.283e44653f87c257cbd0818a86833973.jpg

Looks like they need to power wash this part of the ride.

1863002346_100_9652(Medium).jpg.10a74c34a6134f58d74b4dce77d5acd3.jpg

They paint mark the bolts, so they can tell if they are comming loose.

653486540_100_9653(Medium).jpg.d3bbee8b7dff26580be683284f686bfc.jpg

Looks like they need to be painted as well.

I did not see the river boats while in the park.

1695299043_100_9660(Medium).jpg.257f8decf7f133051eb09942e9a91c65.jpg

Ok, now let's check out dragsters tower and maintanance area.

Another great deal....only$9 for a slushy. Not sure how the gas station by me gets away with selling the same size for $1

Very cool pictures! It's so cool to see how a park prepares for a new season. Do they keep the trains outside in the winter? I would think it would get some damage.

 

For the most part....yes.

they sit outside untill they get there winter rehab, then they go back on the tracks.

Great photos! Thanks for sharing!

 

I was surprised to see a Coca-Cola bin, the one under Magnum's station... Isn't Cedar Point still with Pepsi? And did they give a reason for cutting down all those trees?

In that first batch of photos there are some brown metal rails you said you didn't know what they were for. I'm pretty certain they are from Gemini's transfer system. They run from the beginning of the brake run to the transfer track and a cable runs inside it. It's used by maintenance to winch the trains backwards off the transfer and into the station every morning before the ride opens. It's kind of a quirky and interesting process. Why they would be removed and laying out in the parking lot is beyond me. Maybe they came up with a new way to do it or maybe they just needed replaced.

Considering it's under Magnum's station, only employees see it, so it doesn't matter. CP doesn't care much about product placement unless the guests can see it. Hidden things don't matter. Cedar Point is still Pepsi.

I would not be surprised if they just took them off to clean them or just to check for hairline cracks. Basically, if anything can be taken apart, it gets taken apart (depending on how often certain things need to be maintained. There was one point where CP took a section off of WT's tower because it needed to be fixed up.)

I think they are getting sand blasted and repainted. They were sitting right next to the sand blaster.
