Virtual Midway has added 48 new photos of the construction at Cedar Point along with a new video. The vertical tower is already a fixture on the Cedar Point skyline.
Werner Stengel: Ich sprich, denke und traüme Achterbahn!
Well, the pics show clearly that the tower is, let's just say, not close to 200' yet. Could be built higher though, who knows. Also, the diameter of the supports seems smaller than that of Xcelerator. But before everyone gets their chonies in a bind, that doesn't mean anything. Just stating facts. The pullout is different than XLer8trs as well. While KBF's rocket moves up between the supports, this one ascends and appears to pull out along the front of the tower...hmmmm. If you want to compare just go over to RCDB for some really great pics of XLerator. To tell the truth, I don't know what CP is building (and from what I read most of you don't know either) but I'm sure it will be a great ride. We're already having so much fun on the Intamin rocket here in SoCal that I can't wait to get to CP next year to check it out. Oh, by the way, I'll be at CP Oct. 12 for halloweekends. I'll check it out myself. See you on the midway.
thats exaclty how i see it! untill they actually announce it, i will be watching the construction now and then. but since none of us really have to much of a clue whats going on. all be thankful that there is something going in. I am very fortunate to live by it. some people live all the way in colorado, and have the lovley six flags park!
Not to start anything bashing or anything. just my 2 cents.
Man I wish I could go back to CP. So many Intamins!
I've gotta get me one of those cranes.

But no one noticed the suspicious "Rotary" Trailer lurking in the background - did they? I think theyre the ones behind this! *** This post was edited by LooseChangeProductions on 10/4/2002. ***
OMG. I will be at CP this Sunday and will probably spend most of the time gawking at the site.
I know what webcam I will be drooling over all winter.....................:-)
Feel The Adrenaline....
The new attraction will involve a roller coaster, plus a restraunt and observation area constructed at the top of the three big yellow columns.
