^Pretty sure it was just to post their deals and payment plans for Season Passes right now. All Cedar Fair parks are doing it. Get a Free Visit this year for First Time Passholders or a Free Fast Lane for renewing passholders.

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe that is the same style of ride as the Ninja Turtles Shell Shock ride at Mall of America

They are similar. Ninja Turtles is a Gerstalauer Sky Fly, and Skyhawk is a Gerstalauer Sky Roller.

Sky Roller stays level:

Isn't it easier to flip on the Sky Roller?
