Hey everybody...I'm planning to fly to Cedar Point sometime soon, and by fly I mean doing all the flying myself (not letting Delta do it). I got my charts (maps) and found CP marked as many towers (the coasters), the tallest of which is 437 feet tall and still under construction. I'm not meaning to rumor, but what is under construction and 437 feet tall around there? Is it the top of Dragster's beacon? Just thought I'd throw that out there and see if anybody knows. And yes, I plan to take lots of pictures if anyone is intrested in seeing them later.
Getting too close, aka crashing, is not high on my to-do list...ever. Especially after an hour and a half flight. I guess it could be the elevator/ lightning rod of TTD, I just never really paid attention before. Its hard to see the height (17 feet) from the ground, and I have other priorities when riding. Could they count the extra 17 feet, or does it only pretain to track height?
SMTWTFS...Just imagine a plane flying below you! Trust me, that pilot won't be me. As far as the Great Lakes are concerned, I think the chart did place them around 500 MSL. That makes 437 foot object is 437 feet above ground (AGL), or 937 feet MSL.
Didn't know if I was supposed to start a new post for this or not...The flight planning website that I use mentioned something about a shuttle that runs from the airport to CP for 8 bucks round trip per person. Anybody familiar with that? The posting was dated 2002 or 2003, so I wasn't sure if the shuttle is still in operation or not. Are there any other options for transportation? I know walking is out (causeway and the distance), and I'm not terribly found of taxis. Final question (last one, I promise), can you bring a flight bag (it has my charts, GPS, headset, and various flight stuff) into the park with me? I'd put it into a locker to avoid dragging it around all day. Thanks.
If elevation above sea level were thrown into a coaster's total height, either the tallest coaster at Elitch's (5280'+ ASL)or some other coaster I don't know about in the Rocky mtns. might be the record breaker. Would anyone out there know the answer to this?
