What is CP up to?

If you go the the CP blog, they have pictures of "plans" for 2006. Anyone have any idea what they are up to?

Hopefully they're trying to fix TTD. :)

What is CP up to?

16 coasters, and the "supposed" record for most rides in a park but that already was debated.

oh you meant for 2006, my bad my bad, thanks folks, I won't be here all weekend. <badabingboomcrash>

Moosh, maybe you can fill us in .... upcharge or non upcharge. How many seats per arm? :) I love these things CP is begging me to go back next year I think.

The 40-seat Screaming Swing model. It'll be one of the two that are being introduced next year in the U.S. in addition to the two 32-seat versions going into Kennywood and Lake Compounce (was it?).

Yup KW and LC are getting the 32 seat model and they will be non-upcharged! Gotta love that!

...and still no more stateside versions of SWAT? :(

Screamin' Swing is fun and all, but the SWAT is the DEAL...a truly amazing ride, a thrillseeker's delight. But since CP got MaXair this year, I guess something a little more "tame" is the way to go for '06...

I know Houston's Swatter was troublesome at first, but it's been reliable since then AFAIK...won't somebody buy me one of those...PLEASE! ;)

Where's the "Oh, that's so lame? Why are they getting a clone?" posts?... ;) ;)

We all know they'd be here if this was a SF park getting one....especially when another park so (relatively) close is getting one.

lol this is a clone... but it's an item that what are you going to do to not make it a clone: add more seats or make it swing to a different level are all i can think of.

And BTW I may be called a SF Fanboy since I defend GADv when they deserve it ;)

Oh wait We weren't supposed to bash the blog as a clone were we? ;)

Cedar Fair bought two of the 40 seat models, so you could probably guess where it's going by process of elimination on what has been announced, who already has a version, etc.

It just surprises me that Cedar Point would follow MaXair up with another swinging ride when it sounds like that didn't do much for their attendance (so far) anyways. Oh well, increased overall park capacity is always a plus and maybe it will liven up the back of the park a little.

So that is Screamin Swings for CP and VF next year? That works for me.

..like anyone here seriously knows right now.

The swings are PROBABLE but absolutely nothing is set in stone right now.

Um, actually they'll be set in concrete pretty shortly. :P

Joe "set that in stone!" C.

I took the picture off the blog and put it in photoshop and drew with the pencil tool over the obvious lines.

The top 2 pictures were "enhanced" which brought out some deeper lines.
The top picture has increased contrast, the 2nd was lightened quite alot and then the bottom one is what I could see.

The few red lines show what I would assume to be there other than that, all the other lines are what I honestly think is on the drawing.

It still doesnt look like much to me though.

Knott's did the exact same move (followed up on a swinging ride with another swinging ride), except on a more miniature scale version. They followed up the debut of the Chance Revolution 32 dubbed La Revolucion a year later with the world's first S&S Screaming Swing ride (8 seater version).
