Cedar Point Radio Station

Saturday, October 26, 2002 12:29 PM

You know how airports and movie theaters and bridges have radio stations for when you're coming close so you can hear all the news and warnings and stuff? I think Cedar Point should get one of those, so if you're on your way, you can hear what's going on, the do's and don'ts, and just get even more hyped up about it every time you hear, "Cedar Point: America's Roller Coast!" Does anybody else agree with me on this one?

(If they already have a station, tell me so I'm not all that embarressed)

Sorry, but there is an AM Traffic Radio Station for Cedar Point. 520 if I'm not mistaken.

Yup, noticed a sign last time we went to CP. I think we were on 250 when we saw it..... Not sure what the station number was.

the building is just down the street from the causeway, it kind of looks like an airplane hanger.

Can't you listen in to cedar point's police station on your police scanner?

Sanders, why not? I'm sure it's not encrypted or digital or anything like that. It may be a trunk, but even then you can still listen to with a regular scanner. You just have to find the frequency(s).

Found 'Em: Police: 461.300; Fire: 466.300

Try 102.7 WCPZ. It's in that "airplane hangar"looking building. It is on the signs as you approach Cedar Point and they report on traffic and other conditions near the park.

You can pick up CP radio on a scanner from pretty far away. I've listened to it 70 miles away in Cleveland, but its really boring and gets old fast.

WCPZ is a Clear Channel-owned pop music station wholly unrelated to the park. If there is an accident on the causeway or some other type of problem, they usually do a good job of reporting it; however, they are in no way "Cedar Point's Radio Station."

I'm not too sure about this AM station I saw mention of, but WCPZ does have some sister stations, including an AM station, in Sandusky. I believe this is what you're referring to, and again, it's not part of Cedar Point.

The idea, though, is a good one; and if executed right, could catch on with the thousands of regulars and become a new attraction to casual visitors.

Going along with this...

I think that they should have a central radio station in the park, broadcasting to all the queues that have DJ booths, that could be tranformed into receiver stations. This would cut down on the amount of DJ's needed, and they could actually employee a few real DJ's from some local radio stations.

The signal wouldn't have to be too strong since a 2-3 mile radius could cover the peninsula. They could give weather updates, periodic queue times for rides, and have a wide variety of music to play, unlike some of the previous people this year that played only what they wanted to hear, and wouldn't take suggestions. This would cut down on repeats heard throughout the day, and the waaay too short midway loop. (I heard "Funkytown" 4-5 times every time I went this year.) People could go to the central booth and have dedications and requests too. I think that it would be pretty feasible, and the cost would be justified in the long run with a need for fewer DJ's.

Dollywood had one until 1999. It (of course) played country music, and had information on the park and weather in the area.
