Cedar Point hopes to get Dragster open this weekend

Posted Thursday, July 3, 2003 7:00 AM | Contributed by Goccvp1

Following the closure of Cedar Point's Top Thrill Dragster due to problems with the ride's hydraulic launch system, the park is working with engineers to get the rid back to operating status for the holiday weekend.

Cedar Point fanboy... I've been called that before.
But never in my life have I ever done to someone, just becasue they said something Negative about the park, what you guys have. Seriously this is laughable and hysterical to see people so upset that their precious ride keeps breaking down. I think it's hilarious that TTD is down, I've ridden it, it's great, but also it's hilarious that they can't get the thing working properly. I think this is just what Cedar Point fanboys get for trashing on other certain parks for their coaster that opened up a year later. I'm not trying to start anything, but just wanted to laugh at the hypocricy of the whole situation.

Plus I'm friends w/ Raven Phile who's a big CPFanboy right Josh? haha

ApolloAndy's avatar I don't mean to be hating, but the last time I was at CP was last season for WT and a sign out front said, "WT will be open later today."

So I happily entered the park, expecting to be able to ride WT. Did it ever open? Nope. :(

I personally can't give CP too much credibility about their ride opening estimates just based on that experience.

Coaster Clown, I couldn't agree with you more except I don't think it's funny for Cedar Point. I'll be the first one to try to explain to fanboys about life outside of Sandusky, but I know some really great people that work at the park and feel for them until this situation is resolved. Hopefully it'll be this week-end, but I'd never put all my marbles in that basket. I know that next year, the ride should be up to their full operational standards. Until then, I'm not going to hold my breath. Which, in my opinion, was SFWoAdudes underlining point in his first two posts. I don't know the guy, as I'm new to this thread, but I feel that he got attacked because of his username only. If he called himself by a name that was associated to anything related to Cedar Fair, I don't think that he would have been pounced on so hard. I'd hate to think what would happen to me if I admitted that I worked at Geauga Lake as a ride op on the Dipper in this thread. Opps! But hey that was 20 years ago. I was just trying to defend someones point which I thought was pretty valid. The only thing I will admit was a mistake for him to post, was his direct statement at the beginning when he said it wasn't going to open period. That was a mistake. When Jeff called his bluff, he explained himself more clearly in his second post but it was too late. The Cedar Point buzzards were just waiting for someone to criticise THEIR park. It's a shame really because there is life outside of Sandusky, Ohio, but living here you'd never know it.

I know, I don't think it's FUNNY for Cedar Point directly, but I do think that it's HILARIOUS how some people treat the situation of having a coaster NOT OPEN all year at their precious park differently then that other incident that happened 2 years ago. So I do think it's funny that it has happened, but not for the park itself.

Hope that clears it up, and yes the fact that someone's name is INSERTPARKHEREDuDe282 is ridiculous and they shouldn't call anyone a fan boy.... but they did attact him and that is pathetic.
