CP has a serious space problem....They only have room for maybe 100 more coasters!
CP could put a coaster anywhere! Visit parks like Hershey or Morey's Piers. They have both built coasters over, under, through, and around existing coasters, flumes, rides, buildings, etc. It's amazing. After seeing that I am convinced that CP will never not find room to put in something new. If they do, it will be a few hundred years from now! ------------- - Peabody
I believed they are landlocked, unless they start building rides with a smaller footprint they're in trouble. If they don't have a space problem why is Millennium Force so compact? Why did thy have to build on the island? I do believe there's a space issue, don't yell at me for it either, please.
Why not build on the island? I'm not sure I'd call Millenium Force compact; if CP wanted a coaster in that area, than the lay of the land dictated the layout to some extent. CP doesn't have a space problem, but they shouldn't waste space needlessly either.
Where are our good fellow GTTP'ers with all of the answers at??
Lots of the land that's usefull is not necessarily seen while in the park or by looking at the map. Some of the best places are between MF and Thunder Canyon and along the north beach. Rides can be moved. Look at CP's biggest coasters for god's sake! Mantis, Magnum, MF, and Raptor are all stuck in between things. They could build out to Soak City from the MS-Gemini area. ------------- We are the keepers of the sacred words, Ni!, Peng!, and Nuuuuuwwwom!

Cedar Point has a SPACE PROBLEM??? When did this happen??!! Go over to Guidetothepoint.com and check the threads over there...Jeff made a great list of about 10 spots right off the top of his head where Cedar Point can fit coasters...I am not at all worried about space...and neither should any of you...;)
I am actually excited that Cedar Point has to use creative ways to make coasters. For instance, if I here that a 400 ft. TA2K was being put in, I would be awed all ready without seeing it just because I know it will be a great design in a not so expected place.

In case you don't know. CP is on a penninsula. There could never be another section, unless it was built underwater, or they expanded in the direction of the parking lots. (Don't see that happening soon)

If you think there is a space issue, go to the official CP website. It even says that they don't have a space problem! (Right next to where it confirms that Magnum isn't sinking!) If you don't believe that, go to the park. You can easily see they have plenty of room for new rides/coasters before things become too cozy. Heck, just in the Oceana area there is plenty of ripe land just itching for a few coasters! ------------- - Peabody

Especially when the dolphin stadium comes down completely (or is it down now?). However, it should be noted that CP got rid of A LOT of other things (like the old midway) and rides to make room for these coasters, so maybe they think they have a space problem
