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.
Buzzer #2: XL!
Either way its frickin huge ;)
The $10 million figure includes all capital improvement at the park, not just the ride.

At least I can dunk on you. . .
Shaggy, you make a good point. I think that one of the reasons that CP is successful is because, more often than not, they don't take huge risks.
I wouldn't say CP doesn't take big risks or go with what is proven. They go through a lot of research to make sure what they're adding will be popular and sucessful. So far they've accomplished that on almost every ride they've built.
I believe a huge risk would be buying a small park that is near a huge mega amusement park and build big huge rides in it and expect to have sucess. Now that's a risk CP would never take. That park being Geauga Lake (SFWOA). CF did research there and made it more of a family amusement park rather than competing with a thrill park like Cedar Point.
The biggest risk Cedar Point ever made was to open MF and TTD. They didn't quite know how many people would actually want to ride them, since they're so extreme. But, as it turns out the rides have proven to be the biggest hits to come in the park in history.
Back to topic, maXair looks to be another great addition to Cedar Point.

What about the back of the park? The swan boats removal? Almost every last bit of speculation was in that area, yet rarely does anyone mention "Man, I was WAY off" or "Boy, were we wrong on that"
Consider this me mentioning it :)
It just seems weird to me that Maxair has a capacity of 1000 and Delirium has a capacity of 600.

I hope it isn't a shorter cycle than PKI's
You forgot about the B&M flyer, dueling floorless coasters, removal of White Water Landing, etc.
Isn't it funny how all the talk leading up to an announcement is immediately forgotten once that actual annoucement is made?
