id like the b+m sitdown mega looper but i have gotten way too many bad reports on those flying dutchmen. to me, they look like they have a short track with a bad layout. i do feel that they could get a new layout with unique features and inversions. ------------- "When I'm dead & in my grave, No more pot & whiskey will I crave, On my tombstone it shall be seen. Here lie the bones of a smoking machine."
Actually FDs aren't as bad as they seem. The transitions are smooth and they are very fun. I have ridden stealth and i think that would make a great addition to CP. The only problem is SFWoA already has one. And we all know CP goes for originality in they're coasters. That is why I think a B&M mega looper would make a good addition to CPs world class coaster collection

Take this one over to the rumors section where it belongs...
Cedar Point will not get a looping wooden coaster in 2002, simply because it is not practical. They have enough trouble maintaining the ones they have, so why would they want another one to take care of, only with the problems of Son of Beast? A woodie for 2002, yes, with a loop, no.

I would also like to see a new woodie at the park, but not a looper, leave that to the steel coasters. They need a woodie with lots of air time , I would like to see a ride like Ghost Rider come to CP.

Originality - since 1994 what was the last original concept coaster the park has installed? MF maybe since it is the first 300 footer otherwise all they did is take a great idea (particularly SFGAM) and make them bigger.
CP WILL NOT get a hyper woodie(esp. with a loop) in 2002 or even anytime soon. And I love how people make a few minor problems(which were resolved VERY early last season) in SOB, like it was something out of this World and continues to persist. I can't even remember the last time SOB was closed whole or even half a day. Some time in June 2000? Don't blow things out of proportion when you don't know the whole story. Anyway, they wouldn't choose a hyper woodie, because MS was a bigger bomb to them than SOB to PKI(so far) and SOB is less than 4 hours away. I could definitely see an huge out-and-back, but a twister is doubtful. I can't believe MS still rakes in the crowds. CP needs a big steel sitdown looper twister. I would say to remove DT, move the ferris wheel and put it right on the waterfront. A woodie would look excellent there too, but there is(at least for what I suggested above) a space problem right there. A little rearrangement would do the trick. At least it would spread out the crowds a little more.
------------- Everything above was my opinion.If you disagree,please respond in an intelligent fashion.But before you post,I warn you that some people say I'm just too smart to understand. Please take that into consideration.
If cp did get a wood hyper I think I would be out and back and it would be steel structured. Sob is a lot smoother know pki did something to it and it aged a bit. I think they will go with a steel structured because they seem to be smoother and have less problems. I am hoping though they go with a large out and back , painted white cci woody that could go along the midway.
