I think you might want to put all of the question in there instead of making the title of the thread continue in the question, it took me a few seconds to figure that out. 

But about the question, my guess is yes.  I could be wrong though, this is just a guess.

Im sure they have rode an impulse before they made the decision its not like they only ride the coasters at Cedar Point.

Yes, the management of CP visited SUE. The folks I talked to really liked it. Never thought much of it at the time.

I wouldn't mind seeing a 4D coaster at CP, but Arrow needs to make sure all of the bugs are out of it first.

Cedar Point does not have a space problem(TM).

if they really wanted space, couldnt CP build out onto the lake?  just an idea, cuz I know when Chicago was being built, they built onto the lake, they filled some area in.

once again, Cedar Point does not have a space problem.™ Besides, who would've guessed they would build a coaster on the beach?

And for anyone that still believes that CP have a space problem, Read this from the Offical Cedar Point Page in one of the FAQ's

Is Cedar Point running out of room to expand?

Cedar Point is not running out of room for expansion. When we added the tallest roller coaster in the world for the 2000 season, we employed strategies that are allowing us to grow in spite of our limited land area. The Cedar Point & Lake Erie Railroad track was moved to accommodate Millennium Force, and the Giant Wheel was relocated to a vacant space along the beach. Such creative use and rearrangement of our current and future rides and attractions will allow us to keep growing in the future.

So there, like Jeff and MillenniumRider says, CP does not have a space problem. It will still be interesting to see where they build their next big ride though, but building Wicked Twister on the Beach shows they can build anything anywhere at CP,

Thx Jeff. People just dont SEE how much room some of these parks DO have. What would you think if you went to a theme park and they had several big open empty spaces in the park? That would seem pretty ridiculous. The parks keep these areas intentionally hidden or disquised to the park goers. Outskirts of parks also leave quite a bit of room to build (See Wicked Twister). And lets not forget about the innovative land development procedure of using the parking lot (I am waiting for the day that a park builds a multi-level parking garage in order to free up an enormouse amount of space in the parking lot for new attractions).

Although X is quite a large structure, the footprint needed to place it in a park is relatively small, because it is a simple straight out and straight back design. The area that X stands on now was a small hillside in front of Viper and a very small parking area for buses only. Never would I have thought that the area could/ or would be used to build ANY ride, not to mention something the size of X. I cant even think of what was/wasnt where Deja Vu now is, but there it stands (Although it is VERY close to Psyclone, closer than any other TWO coasters I can think of).

Where is Knotts gonna put a giant CCI woodie? Where can SFMM put TWO new prototypes, where can Cedar Point put wicked twister? Where can SFWoA put Batman:KF; Superman:UE, Villain, AND X-Flight? They always find a way. And they always will.

One of the lone EXCEPTIONS was Kennywood and their remodelling of Steel Phantom into Phantoms' Revenge.

If you think Cedar Point is low on space, take a look at Morey's Pier or the Pleasure Beach in Europe.

Go back to mid-90s, we thought that Cedar Point was low on space, but they added the world's tallest coaster, Lighthouse Point and Wicked Twister. Theres always a way to make more room when needed. When Raptor was added they shortened the Turnpike Cars and moved around 3 rides(I belive). The Oceana Area, the area where Wicked Twister is being built, has alot of free room. Look at Magnum, only a small part of the ride is inside the park, the rest goes over a road and go-cart tracks, through a water park and out on the beach(although go-carts, and the addition to Soak city wasn't present when Magnum was built).

If Cedar Point wants a 4D coaster, then I bet between their skilled staff and Arrow they can easily find a way.

I think they meant that CP built what was at the time, the world's tallest coaster. :)

um...Millennium Force WAS the tallest when it was added. You're forgetting that Steel Dragon was still under construction at the time.

MikeMir87,as ACEerCG stated, Millennium Force was the tallest in the books for about 3 months. I was simpily saying that Cedar Point had enough room to built(at the time) the world's tallest roller coaster.

Although I do agree with Jeff, I would argue that CP does have a space problem.....they only have room for maybe 20 more coasters! :)  Anyone who thinks they do have a space peoblem should visit Hershey.  Great Bear was literally shoehorned in bewteen another coaster which was already intertwined with a log flume.  There are MANY other examples of creative coaster placement (Indiana Beach and Morey's Piers come to mind)    CP could build a 4D, in fact, they could build many.
