Cedar Points' Webcams Finally back up...

Tuesday, April 10, 2007 9:52 AM
...minus one. The main midway cam is not present. The main construction cam has been angled AWAY from the station although you can still see a train on the track. You also get a good look at some of the theming from the pondcam as well as some fencing from the main cam.

I had a good chuckle yesterday when I noticed it still says "watch the construction of the station" even though the station is no longer visible.

What happened to the main midway cam?

I have no idea. I do know that late last year they had a mini-contest to decide where to put another camera, but they never mentioned where they decided. Also, the Main Midway cam was the only one not updated by StarDot NetCam and was still a little fuzzy and grainy. If I had to guess it's been removed, and a newer camera installed somewhere else.

After viewing my captures for today, I pulled out all the ones I could find a train. With the low res nature of the web cams, it's hard to see and I might have even missed a few. But here ya go anyway. Enjoy :)

Do you guys agree this ride is going to be fantastic in terms of layout, theme and thrill?

I thinks so.

^While we sort of knew that back in Sept. after the announcement. I really do think the reviews are going to be quite interesting come May. Maverick is so different from all the coasters we've seen lately.

If the layout matches exactly like the computer renderings in terms of overall theme & landscaping... I'm sure it'll be a huge hit among thrill seekers & families alike.

A couple major things have yet to show up from the rendering. Like the canyon after the airtime hill, the mine shaft thing around the first turn after the first drop, and the water effect during the heartline roll. That's not to say they won't, but that canyon after the airtime hill doesn't look promising.

But that said, the ride has a lot more theme than any other ride at CP and it's still looking great.

^ But the layout matches and that's really all that matters. :)

Some themeing from the concept drawing likely won't be in the final design, but I'm sure I'll be satisfied with the end result.

The Maverick article on wikipedia says that the theming after the airtime hill will not be installed because it runs too close to the railroad.

And we all know how reliable Wikipedia is. ;)

^^ HA HA!! That's bull. That theming isn't too close to the RR tracks. LOL!! Gotta love Wikipedia. :rolleyes:

If you wanted to, you could change the Wikipedia article to say that the ride was supposed to be pink. That doesn't make it true.
