So far, the park reservations are available every day until Sunday, July 26th. I was actually planning to go on July 27th, so I guess I'll have to wait a bit longer

Kingda Ka, Zumanjaro, and a few others rides will not be opening with the park. Forgot where I saw the list. Sounded like maint. work and inspections were delayed due to COVID and still need to be done on a few rides.


This is super disappointing. No Storm Runner at Hershey and now no Ka? Sounds like anything related to an Accelerator model is not opening this year. Womp

Well looks like I'll be (hopefully) able to marathon Batman: The Ride, Nitro, El Toro and Bizarro.

Well Dragster was testing this morning so there goes that theory.

Seems like CP found some magic in their Intamin. Lol

CP also has their own Intamin shop on site maintaining the 4 coasters and rapids ride plus whatever else is Intamin related. I do not think any other park has that available.

Are their CP-employed mechanics dedicated to each coaster, perhaps even specially trained on Inatmin rides? Sure, I'd believe that.

But I'm not going to believe that there's a branch of Intamin AG on-site at Cedar Point. If that were the case, Dragster wouldn't have like 50% downtime each year.

By Intamin shop, I’m sure he means the former.

Nitro is closed and listed as closed on the website. I've heard some not-so-good rumors but don't want to post them since I don't trust the source at all (and if I did I still wouldn't post them for other reasons, lol).

Are you talking about the rumor of Nitro being RMC'd? First ever steel to wood conversion? :lmao: :lmao:
