I think Cp will soon run out of room. It is quite possible that Dragster will be their final accomplishment

Cedar Point does not have a space problem.™

Right on their site. CP hasn't even begun to get creative like parks with real space problems have. Look at what Hershey did with Great Bear and Wildwood did with Noreaster. CP could easily double their coaster count without moving into the parking lot. It just takes creativity and planning.

If uou want to determine if they are going to run out room, why not just use the skills you learned in Trigonomentry and Physics? Consider this: Dragster is 400 FT tall, so this makes the circumference of the track .235mm. While this may seem like a small number, it makes a world of diffrenence when the ride is in motion.

Also, you must consider the lemonade stand across from Dragster. By plugging the volume of the lemonade stand into Newton's equation for universal gravitation, it is obvious that Dragster's acceleration is perpendicular to it's centripetal velocity on distances versus time graph.

After computing all of this, the answer to your question is that CP has apporximately enough room for the next 75.698 years!

Way to start things off CoasterMania. 3 posts and you are already the intellectual. That post was YOUR downfall.

I really don't see how having a space problem is a parks downfall, it just forces them to become more creative (like how HP made Great Bear)

I think that Cedar Points only downfall is thier wooden COasters. BLue streak is a classic ( no dout) And Mean Streak is Awesome. But if you look at their coaster record they have 16 coasters. And 2 of them are wood. Wood coasters are cheap and offer great thrills. So do the "giga" and "strata" but i think that to be a real awesome park you need more than 1 world class wood coaster
