Cedar Point's Halloween float

Tuesday, September 11, 2007 6:38 PM
I was on the CP Blog today (thats Google Reader) and they mentioned a surprise. It said to watch the webcam between 6-7 p.m. Being 5:50 I decided to wait around to see if there was anything worth seeing.

I had a hunch that it was going to be the float that Jeff talked about on the latest podcast. Right around 6:15 I found out that my guess was correct. I grabbed two screens of it which have links below if you didn't get the chance to see it.

Alexx Argen's avatar The Huge Rock man is a big animatronic. I have seen him online
he is at 2:25 in the video

Its sad when your best friend asks you the exact running time of a ride. Good thing I didnt know.

Whoa. CP and animatronics? Wow. I'm a little less impressed that they bought and didn't make the thing. But, I'm more impressed it moves. :)

Don't quote me on this.... But back a few years ago I attended Bowling Green State University. I had a professor by the name of Gene Poor, who founded my program Visual Communication Technology. His other job was running his company called Life Formations, a company specializing in Animatronics located in Toledo. He mentioned a few times he does business with Cedar Point, though never specified what and where. I just though I would share, just because it would be cool if he has some stuff in the parade. :)

crazy horse's avatar Is kinzel going to drive the antiqe car down the midway?....

Oh wait, he already did.

what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
