Thursday, October 6, 2005 6:10 PM
According to Cedar Point Website, TTD status window says it is scheduled to be in operation. This weekend is looking even better.

I hope it's running on the 16th or my trip to the park.

What's funny is that I by chance today was looking at CP on a webcam and saw MF operating. So, I watched a little longer and thought I saw TTD operating, but convinced myself it was just a figment of my imagination.

So now I am wondering, is there a minimum temperate at which the coasters at CP, or PKI operate? *** Edited 10/7/2005 4:29:31 AM UTC by SVLFever***

I don't know about CP specifically, but I know from the people I've talked with, 40* seems to be a "magic temperature" at which rides will be shut down, mostly due to problems with the compressed air used for braking.

So, was TTD working last nite? Or tonite? I did not see any trip reports yet for this weekend, but I will check again tomorrow. If you do know though, can you please reply to this post?

I've ridden coasters at CP in colder than 40F temperatures. Magnum, for instance, will run for as long as there's no ice building up on the wheels.

Dragster was down when I got to the park around 7 last night due to high winds...along with several other. When I left the Red Garter at 9p.m. Dragster and all the others were open. Managed to get 6 rides in under an hour and seemed to being running very well.

I believe that Thunderhead shuts down below 30-ish degrees. I think they said 32*, don't remember. I'll tell you in December...

I was at the park on Saturday 10/8 and TTD was up and down all day. It was pretty much raining all day, too, so I dont think it was really the ride having a problem so much as weather.

Although it was closed for a couple hours in the early afternoon, opened with some rollbacks, then went back down for the evening. Again, it was raining on and off all day, so I am guessing that weather was a huge part of its downtime. I got two rides in, though, only waiting about 30-45 minutes.

Think about it.. how many non-enthusiasts would want to subject themselves to 120mph raindrops?

While I was in line saturday for TTD and it was down due to weather, Tek(the ride op) said that the rain had to become a drizzle or stop for TTD to run. If we were to ride in the rain it would leave red bumps and scrapes all over our face for the next 5-6 hrs.( Sounds like a blast)

But when I was riding Iron Dragon at about 8pm on Saturday night, the rain had stopped and there was an empty train sitting on the launch block from about when I noticed it at 8pm until about 9 or so.

According to "OnPoint", it's down the rest of the season. It broke again.

It was operating on sunday when we went, but it must have closed down shortly after we walked past it. We thought there was smoke leaking out of the launch building, but it turned out to be a fog machine for halloweekends.

It may have been smoke, who knows? Whatever happened, it's toast for this year.

^ toast is still good, except when it's stale. I got my rides on KK this summer, not TTD. You think there's a curse or something? Maybe both rides are on grounds where people died or are buried. It could be like the Amittyville Horror (except the coasters don't talk to us) and the portal to the underworld is under the ride layouts. That's why they are broke. So when they go down, simply blame it on the devil.
