Cedar Point today announced "maXair," a giant Huss Frisbee. The new ride will be located on the games midway near Space Spiral, and is part of a $10 million capital improvement plan for the park.
Read more from Cedar Point.
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...

I REALLY like the idea of redoing the games midway. It needed overhauled bad to get out of that 70's look.
Go to www.pki.com, find Delirium, click on it.
Or just look @ the link above?
The games midway needs to be maintained... not changed. It's not 60s tacky anymore, it's "retro."
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.
Got that out of the way too.

I have a feeling that if this were at a Six Flags park, people would be busting on the name.
I kinda thought Cedar Fair was going to not replace the Starfish at Geauga Lake and move it to CP since they lost Schwabinchen, buts it's fine.
maXair is said to turn clockwise - doesn't Delirium turn counter clockwise?
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*.
