Millennium Mania 3?

Thursday, September 5, 2002 4:18 PM
Do you think that there will be a Millennium Mania 3 or do you think that the park is done with that event? I personally hope that they will have it again as it is, IMO, the best thing ever. Walk-on rides on MF, Raptor, Power Tower, Magnum, and Mantis for a decent amount of time.

Maybe they will change the name to something with Wicked Twister in the name, but I do think they should have a third, no matter what the name is. It truely is a great time to ride some of my favorites.

Cedar Point 2003, and it begins...

It wont be this year. But hopefully next year they will be able to do it again. They noted attendance problems, but happening right after 9-11 last year and not having Millie up really killed it. I know I didn't go because of 9-11 and I am sure plenty of other people didn't go for that reason as well.

All I need is 4.5 million bucks and a half a mile long sliver of land and maybe someone could build me my very own Shivering Timbers. ;)

I think I heard it said that it's not happening this year due to lack of attendance from previous years, but that doesn't make any sence. Halloweekends got off to a slow start as well, as the park knew it would, but they stuck with it and now look at how successful it is.

A little off topic, but that's usuially the direction I go...

Millenium Mania 1 could have been so much more. A co-worker of mine and I came up with a brilliant plan for our employers, CP, to really liven up the first MM but it didn't happen. We offered the idea for free. We asked nothing in return for our input.

This idea was for the park to have live rock bands set up on the stage in front of the lazer screen durring MM. They could have had signed and/or unsigned bands that didn't charge an arm and a leg to play. A lot of bands I know would have charged a minimal amount just for the exposure that they would get. We even had some bands contacted to possibly perform and they sent CP promo packs and such.

It was talked about for some time before MM was fully planned. The Event was very promising, however at the last minut CP decided that it would not fit their family atmosphere. No biggie, except that MM isn't really a family event, IMO it is a enthusiasts event. And a lot of enthusiasts like live bands.

Ohhh...What could have been a HUGE success is now a distant memory.

I went last year on 9/14... i thought for sure that after 9/11 i wouldn't be able to go... but the gas prices didn't go up to 12 dollars a gallon, and I was on my way.

It was definitly THE best day I've ever spent at Cedar Point, and really spoiled me... too bad they didn't have it again this year.

I'm hoping that the friday night of Halloweekends will be Similar to MM in that there's NO line for the force... 22 rides last year really gets you spoiled! ;)

I went on the 13th last year and MM was great. The day started out nice, and I rode every ride with resonable temps. Then the rain started to fall, along with the temp. I got to ride MF in 50 degree weather and the rain. It was the best day ever at CP. I was really hoping to go this year (and my dad who hates coasters most of the time), but I guess it wasn't as big of hit as what CP hoped for.
