I'm glad they finally annouced it. I'm glad its a Giant Frisbee. I hope to get back to the Point next year, and hopefully I'll get to hit 2 of these, as they are some of my favorite flat rides period. Now if only a ride on Pizza La was closer...

One would think they would have gone with a little different color scheme from PKI's? None the less this is still one great carnival ride. And CP REALLY needed a high capacity carnival ride. I still would like to see a carnival ride put back in the back of the park...now that we don't have those great Swan Boats anymore ;)
I REALLY like the idea of redoing the games midway. It needed overhauled bad to get out of that 70's look.
I see they are fixing the problem with Wicked Twister's towers swaying by shortening the trains ;).
I'm very excited to see this type of ride at Cedar Point. I think this is a step in the right direction rather than the tallest, fastest, frilliest coaster in the world. This ride's location will also draw a lot of onlookers as well. I can't wait to see the new midway games section since it'll be getting a major overhaul. While the look is pretty unique IMHO, I think it's long overdue for a new look.
Troika isn't going anywhere (especially after the extensive rehab it just had). The ride will be where several of the games in the middle of the midway were. Everyone seemed to notice the utility marks on the ground closing weekend.
Well, I guess being called a troll isn't the worst thing in the world... but running that risk.
You have to summize that Cedar Point saw the overwhelmingly positive reactions that PKI got from their install. That no doubt helped sell them on the ride. PKI's Delirium install was, without a doubt, the best decision the park has made in years and years.
Cedar Point's leaders are no fools, and the ride will fit excellently with their "thrill" genre.
But naturally one who enjoys attending each Ohio park has to draw comparisons from time to time. Fact is, I think that CP is simply tapping into the knowledge that PKI discovered a few seasons back. Guests want new, different and wide-appeal rides. This easily fills that nice... just like the waterpark did last year.... *ahemPKIahem*.
