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.
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.
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 ***
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....
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.
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.
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!
