A new animated banner is back on CedarPoint.com, now in flash with the addition of many new animations and the options to turn off / on the ride animations to minimize load time and maximize navigation. I love it... just though I would mention it. ;)

Pretty impressive. You have PT, MF, WT, Magnum, and TTD all running on the same banner. Whats better is the trains even follow the course of the ride, especially obvious on Magnum and MF.

I think their web-guy has been to the park a few times...:)

Oh my. That's fun.

I'm a little disapointed Mean Streak didn't get any of the animation fun since it is front and center. ;-)

Actually, you can click on the options on the bottom right corner and turn on just about everything that is visible on the banner, including Mean Streak.

Is it just me or can you not see Mantis (hardly) or Space Spiral? Not enough to actually see them running?

Well, I guess I can come in from the ledge now!

It's nice and all, but it has, once again, crashed Firefox on both of my machines.

... well all be darn.

I never fully realized how difficult it must be living where parks are closed for 5 months in the winter until I see someone excited about a new animated banner on CP's website ;)

Drop by PointBuzz and watch the kiddies give you a play-by-play every time a seagull takes a dump in front of the Web cam. It's intolerable. *** Edited 3/5/2005 12:57:53 AM UTC by Chitown***

ya i also noticed that if you zoom in far enough on it you can see people sitting in the power tower chairs. its kinda cool. none of the coasters do that though only PT

I run Firefox and it runs just fine for me.

Im most definitly excited to see the animated banner back, I myself was amazed to see that MF especially follows the entire corse even the small portion of turns and the camel hill leaving the island, you can see the train wiz by. My hat is tiped to whoever the man/women is that made the animation. I love it how no other park has this sorta feature on their website.

But certainly not as good as the Point's.
