I was at cp towards the end of the summer, believe me they are going to build a coaster or some other big attraction there soon. on paddle wheel excursion i seen some bulldozers concrete mixers and some concrete already poured. I had prevously talked to the paddle wheel excursions boat opp. before so i asked him what was going on. He told me it was going to be a coaster which will debut in 2002. This could be quit so because it is the perfect place for a coaster, They were laying coaster support cement blocks, and cp is kind of obvious they are going to go crazy for 2002 season on coasters
I am pretty sure that Cedar Point is NOT going to be laying out support cement blocks 2 years before a new coaster. Name one park that hasn't announced a new coaster for the upcoming season 2 years in advance, but already laid out the supports!!! It doesn't take 2 years to plan a coaster, and they are not going to lay out the base years in advance because of the potential for changes & aging.
It's virtually impossible. There's a lot of planning that goes into constructing a coaster, and that definately is not what those "cement supports" were for!
For one thing cp is always quiet about new attractions, And another thing parks dont just decide they need a coaster and build one next month. It takes several months to build and then it has to go through at least two months of testing. Everybody says cp isn't get anything next year I think this is probably true but still there is that chance they could release something toward the end of the summer. Any ways I seen two bulldozers, a cement mixer and cement blocks like on coaster supports. This is what i seen so i am sticking to it. All I can say is that cp will get a new coaster on the island soon.
I've also heard of quite few orange track sections on flat bed trailers going down the causway...maybe they are doing something.... ------------- CP ride host - *2000 - Cedar Downs, WildCat *2001 - Cedar Downs assistant team leader
