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.

I totally agree. I'm sure they were in the market for a flat and said "Look @ what PKI added. Its got good capacity, its a good ride, and it would fit right in with our 'larger than life' ride image. Let's get one".
You don't fit my description of a Troll by any means. You presented it in a logical way:). Regardless, I'm glad that there are now going to be 2 Giant Frisbee rides within 6 hours of me, Yay!
NOT because I was expecting some recording breaking coaster, but I was hoping the new flat might be a Jump2 or "Swat" (@ SFAW...sorry, I don't know the real model name.) Of course, my reasons are purely personal and selfish...I'd never ridden either of these rides, but want to. (However, not enough to make the trip to Houston or Toronto <g>)
That being said, the giant frisbee is a good move for CP. PKI's has proven to be a great choice, and will be a good fit at CP.
maXair is said to turn clockwise - doesn't Delirium turn counter clockwise?
yes it does turn counter clock wise. thats cool how threre making it different. im so happy that there finally getting one and are wishes came true. Thank you cedarpoint!!!!!!
I think this is what CP really needs. This is really a better addition than a coaster for them IMHO.
I'm very thrilled at this news.
"maXair will have a “retro” color scheme of orange, blue, yellow and red"
If you ask me, a "retro" color scheme depends on the time period you're going for.
50's and 60's = Turquoise, Pink, Chrome
70's = Avocado Green, Harvest gold, brown, and orange
Who decided that orange and the three primary colors are "retro"?
Oh, well. Better the 50s than the damn Gemini/Magnum/DT/MF FyootureBots again!
Too bad it has to be the competition and I don't care much. Should be uber fun for the locals and diversify their flat collection though. PKI is CP's biggest park competition afaik, so I'm sure some people will notice that.
+Danny, or not ;)
Cedar point is loosing it..... ;)
I am extremely excited that a Northern Ohio park is finally getting a Frisbee-type of ride. Hershey's Claw was an absolute blast and I expect this ride will be just as fun, if not moreso.
Cedar Point could have at least gone with a different color scheme than PKI's Delirium. It is a great ride and the capacity is awesome. I think the main reason CP is going to a flat ride is space. Being a landlocked park has to hurt. I love both parks and do not see a need for 2 parks with the same ride. Ohoo wait, CP's will go the other direction so it makes it totally different. lol
Wow, one post that covers every major misconception about parks (some in general, some in particular) and makes a couple of hilariously "enthusiast" statements in one quick swoop.
We have a winner!
