Cedar Point Treeless...... NOT!!!

Saturday, January 18, 2003 10:58 AM

I have heard in many cases where people say that Cedar Point has hardly any trees. What were they thinking? Cedar Point has bundles of trees. And, when they tear down a tree, 2 years later its back! Even if they do lack in trees in some areas, the Frontier Trail makes up for it.

Wow, you never realize how many trees they have until you see that picture. It looks like a forest for a little bit with some protruding coasters.

I guess we really don't see that portion of the park too much.

Judging by the bunch of red necks I saw at Cedar Point I would say that either a) people from Ohio/Michigan have never heard of sunscreen or b) Cedar Point does need more trees, especially on the main midway.

MIA lacked trees when I was there during ST's opening year but I could swear that there are still plenty of trees @ VF. I haven't noticed any real tree loss there except when WT was built but the park still looks nice. Yes believe it or not I said something good about VF!

When a picture is taken at an angle like that, the factor of distance is harder to percieve. If you would plant 3 alternating trees 100' apart from each other and took a picture at that angle, it would look a lot more crowded that it really was.

Now, I'm not saying that there aren't quite a few trees in that area, I really do think it's a lot less crowded than it looks. The truth is, Cedar Point does not have as many trees as other parks, and that doesn't necissarily mean the park is bad. There is no such thing as a perfect park every park needs improvement somewhere. Cedar Point may just need a little work on the scenery.

I agree that Cedar Point could add a few more trees here and there, but I'm pretty happy as long as they don't keep removing them for new rides, or at least re-planting them once the ride has finished construction. If I had to point out some "problem spots," I think that the area in and around Cedar Creek Mine Ride could have a few more trees planted in there. In my opinion, that ride could be a lot better if you couldn't see the entire thing from the first lift and you flew past trees as you went along the course. Also, the area around Mantis and Iron Dragon just seems "dirty" to me for some reason. This might be fixed now that Top Thrill Dragster is there.

I think the whole back of Cedar Point is fine with the amount of trees they have. The front of the park seems to be lacking some trees especially by the DT midway. Cedar Point compared to a lot of other parks has plenty of trees in my oppinion. The whole peninsula used to be a forrest of Cedar trees before it became an amusement park, I beleive hence the name "Cedar" Point.

If anyone needs to add more trees its DCA. There are quite a few, but they're babies.

Cedar Creek Mine Ride did have many trees around it for a number of years. Then, when Camp Snoopy was built in 1999, it lost a lot of that "wilderness" scenery. I don't think TTD has fixed anything. More trees were removed. Iron Dragon was a GREAT ride until Mantis was built. They removed a lot of trees in that area too. -Also, the Paddel Wheel Excursions got kind of defaced over the years do to the addtion of Mantis, Camp Snoopy, and Millennium Force. I miss that more "natural" look and appearance of Paddel Wheel Excursions. However, Cedar Point does have lots of wooded areas. I am impressed of how MF was constructed. They sort of weaved the ride through the trees, only removing the ones in its path. Light House Point will look great in about ten years once all the landscaping grows in. :-)

It would be nice if a lot more trees were planted in the Cedar Creek Mine Ride area, especially in and around the ride itself. Like I said before, it would be so much better if you were surrounded by trees the entire ride.

The main midway definately needs some trees.

There are plenty off trees just off of the main midway. There is really no way to put trees in the middle of a vast concrete area that can already be extrmely crowded without dodging trees.

10 years ago you could see Maggie's line form the midaway. Today you can't unless you know it's there. Tress will regrow.

I like the main midway how it is. That park is supposed to be filled up with rides and have that whole "welcome to an amusement park" look. Frontier Trail (the area around MF to Snake River Falls) is very nice. While walking back there, sometimes you forget that you are even at the park, but that's until you see MF's giant first drop towering above the trees. Frontiertown is also has a nice variety of trees. The only place that needs more trees is probably the Power Tower area.

I agree with peppering the Mine Ride area with trees, But I would love to also see Mean Streak get more trees. In fact, if they would change the layout of Mean Streak a bit, it would make it an altogether different experience. Especially in the center area where there's the queue line and wide open space. Mean Streak should have a more "woodsy" feel, IMO.

Have you been in the Middle of Mean Streak lately?

It's a veritable forest. You used to be able to see the entire structure. Now there are 25 foot tall trees growing everywhere. Give it some time.

Let's not forget that Cedar Poitn was named for the amount of Cedar trees on the pennninsula. Quite fitting.
