Cedar Point 2008?

ApolloAndy's avatar It's where they're going to bury Maverick's in-line twist and put up a gravestone for it. That's why it says "looks familiar"

They need to start fixing things in the park and not add any new rides. They could start adding some misters to the qlines and some shade covers for the rides that don't have them. The no smoking rule is a joke at CP, I saw no security and people were smoking everywhere. I will bet that CP has not ejected one person this season, while SFGradv has ejected over 1200 so far this year. They could actually spend money to fix some of the rides that have gotten so rough over the years, like Blue Streak, Mean Streak, Mantis, and Magnum just to name a few.

Excerpt from Dick Kinzel Article in Cleveland Plain Dealer:

"We certainly haven’t given up on Cedar Point. That’s where the majority of our capital goes. We have 1,400 hotel rooms there. We have a separate water park. We have an indoor water park and hotel. It really is a city within itself and we’re very proud of it. And we’re going to continue to put money into it.

We’ll come back in 2009 with another big ride or family attraction or something at Cedar Point."

Maybe that means it's a "no addition" year for Cedar Point. Didn't they take a year off after Dragster too?

Sheikrafanatic's avatar Also If you went to Coastermania this year during the Q&A session they said this year they did work on Blue Streak and I can tell you from experience that it is much better.

^Maybe skip a new attraction and fix Mean Streak instead of putting band aids on it.

Blue Streak was absolutely fantastic back in June. It's up in my top woodies right now. I didn't find Mantis to be that bad (and trust me I was worried before getting on).

We all know what needs to happen to Mean Streak--it's needs to be eradicated. If they were take it out like Hercules and replace it with whatever (I'd recommend an Intamin woodie :)), they'd have to start way ahead like Dorney did.

The problem is did Maverick provide Mean Streak with more fuel to last a lot longer?

Magnum is another story in itself. That's some old-school technology going on in that ride. The trains don't work well with the track (in comparison to other hyper trains), the turns are not smooth, and the bunnyhills are really bad if you don't tighten your seatbelt really tight.

Let's not forget that this is the same park that "leaked" fake blueprints before. There's nothing they like more than getting people to start speculating. And, every year people end up playing right into their hands.

WT was '02; Dragster '03, so you now stand corrected. :)

Jason Hammond's avatar ^You are correct. In addition, 2001 brought us Lighthouse Point and Johnny Rockets. 2004 brought us Donut Time, Game Day Grille and Famous Dave's Bar-B-Que.

I thought Wicked Twister came after TTD and MaxAir was two years after TTD.

That's a good question. MS opens at 10 this year (compared to last year's 11). I don't know what kind of ridership it is generating though---I've never seen much difference, but I've only been on it maybe twice this season, so I know almost nothing.

Jason Hammond's avatar MS is usualy once a visit for me, and in the past few years it's usualy been a walk on or a 1 train wait. The closest I've gotten this year is the bottom of the stairs. And more than once this year, I didn't ride because the line was longer than I was willing to wait. Nothing like the full queue I saw last halloweekends though.
