Virtual Midway adds video clips, Cedar Point getting a bakery

Posted Friday, January 16, 2004 8:33 AM | Contributed by Gemini

Virtual Midway has added six videos showing scenes from Cedar Point's past. The clips include a portion of dolphin show at Oceana, Christmas at the Park and the Trabant.

Cedar Point will also turn an old arcade building into a bakery, which will serve fresh doughnuts, bread, fudge brownies, Top Thrill Dragster-themed cookies, juice, tea and flavored coffee. The bakery section of the park will be open to guests before the park's usual opening time.

A bakery. Now, why didn't they think of that before? What a good idea.

Hint to you early arrivers. Stop by Breakers East and their Deli before heading into the park or for a quick bite at lunch. They have a small but nice selection of food there.

That video of Christmas in the park was great Walt.

Very few people around here these days would probably remember Jungle Larry's or the Frontier Carousel.

Also, nice shot of Avalance Run in the Oceana one.. ;)

Thanks for the images...*** This post was edited by Red Garter Rob 1/16/2004 12:26:02 PM ***

Hmm...that "Gameday Grille" sounds a lot like what they are doing to All-Stars Grill at WOF. I wonder if this will become a "chain-wide" restaurant (with the renaming of the one at WOF) and the addition of the restaurant at the other CF:LP parks (much like what they did with Coasters).

Very few people, Rob? Come on, it wasn't that long ago. Don't be such an old man!

Not that Power Tower and Dragster aren't great but I sure miss Jungle Larry's. I think the family still runs the Naples zoo. I am going to have to go over there.

Excellent videos Walt! Thanks for sharing those.

The videos are very good. Thanks Walt!

After watching the Christmas in the Park video, I understand why it was only a one year event....the park is empty.

It's almost a little too freaky seeing CP that empty....

I remember the frontier carousel and Jungle Larry's

Too bad this laptop doesn't have the software needed to see the videos and they've locked it so I can't download anything. I'll have to wait until tomorrow to watch the memories.

The bakery sounds like a great idea.

It's a little scary to see how much the point can change in 10 years after watching the "Christmas in the Park" video. It was even weird seeing the Giant Wheel over in its old location (where MF now stands), even though that was only a few years ago.

This bakery thing is going to be very interesting. I like the idea, but I think WAYyyy to many people would come into the park for it. Yeah, it'll make a ton of money, but unless there are some pretty strict guidelines, I could easily see it getting out of hand. I just hope they have some great cream sticks :)

I like the change over in Silver Dollar to Game Day. Shawna (my wife) and I eat there almost everytime we're at the park. I just like the view up in the windows by Raptor. The atmoshphere wasn't the best, but it was relaxing. Now, after all those summer days of wondering what the score of the Indian's game is or Brown's on Sundays people can stop by and check it out. Good change of pace. Besides, it was one fo those places that was looking way too 70's...or earlier.

And great videos!

I wish CP serve brunch till 1PM. I prefer to have pancakes, eggs and breakfest meat (Like the Dennys Grand Slam) for my first meal of the day on my coaster trips. The restaurants at CP quit serving breakfest at 11AM. Does anyone any comment on the subject?
