The primary rumors are a HUGE TA2K or a new wooden coaster. I dont think anyone on here really knows with the exception of Jeff.
Personally I would love a new wooden coaster as I think CP lacks a great wooden coaster since MS began to destroy itself and was then tamed. But I dont think CP really wants a wooden coaster after the MS experience, to expensive to maintain.
I like the TA2K idea but only if it is a record breaker (over 400 ft, over 100 mph) and a larger layout from the Hypersonic. If they dont do that then I think a TA2k would be a bad move (although I would try to be the first in line to ride it! :) )

Why get a floorless if SFWoA already has one. Park patrons will make comparisons and I don't think CP is out for a coaster that is comparable to other local coaster experiences. This also goes along with a CCI coaster. If CP does go wood, it will be a new experience. People say CP hopes to replicate Ghostrider, but again, the Villain and Ghostrider are alike. So again, why build a ride that people will compare to other coasters at your neighboring park. Don't rule out wood. I still think a woodie will be coming to the park, but it won't be a "normal" CCI. As for a TA2K, CF has been very happy with their S&S rides. So there is a good relationship, but I have my doubts. Why build a new record-breaker to un-seat your most expensive coaster that currently holds a marketable record (from a Cedar Point ad "Millennium Force- the tallest and fastest on 6 continents"). Really, it all depends on what Cedar Point thinks will be a profitable coaster, and, what Cedar Point feels they are missing. They don't have a launched coaster, they don't have a sit-down looping experience, and they don't have a really good woodie. So who knows. Maybe we'll get lucky and it will be all three. :)
I highly doubt they would build anything launched. I would look for wood. Maybe not CCI, because again SFWoA has one. Possibly GCI, they're not too bad either:) But personally, I don't want to know until they make an announcement. Knowing early takes the excitement out of it:)
How about asking one of the head parks people at Cedar Point and inquire about 2002?
About the only thing that is true is that these are only and only rumors. Nothing was announced, nothing was mentioned... it's only speculation.
I wish I knew where these rumors even get started!!!
The thing is, I am hoping for the boardwalk to be built like they mentioned (rumor), as well as getting rid of (I mean rid, not move) Peanuts Playground of Kiddie Kingdom. Why do you have 3 exclusive kiddie areas? Isn't Camp Snoopy enough?!?
They cannot fit a coaster there, but a nice flat ride moved from a previous location would fit nicely there (opening up room for a potential coaster in that flat ride's previous location).
The question still would loom over everyones heads ... where would this new coaster fit? Not that they have no room... it's just where do you see it going??
I quite possibly see it going by the beach (pending the boardwalk expansion), on the island where Millennium Force's pretzal turn is, or in that area where the aquatic stadium is (a little shuffling is needed)!!!

There's no way to know that. Vekoma JUST started building woodies. A lot of the Summers/Dinn woodies were smooth at first, and now many are brutal.
Many new Vekomas are smooth, but I've never seen a Vekoma age well, and I can't believe that their woodies will be too different. I enjoyed T2 when it came out in 95, now it's sheer torture. ------------- - Peabody
There is plenty of ways they could expand. One Of which I think will happen in 5-10 years would be; They go mainland with parking and make the parking they have now become park itself. For expansions now , THe lagoon. They could have the queve line go to the midway and the exit path could go to the midway like pki has done with sob and top gun. As for future rollercoasters , I think they are going to ad an airthrust coaster that would start on the lagoon and go to the main sections, and the other would be a cci out and back woodie with some amazing records.
I have a pretty good idea about what's next. Time will tell if I'm right.
I had a conversation very recently with someone up the chain (way up the chain) about some of the current product available out there. Let's just say that capacity is a serious issue, and you can gauge the likelihood of a new addition that way.

How does anyone know 2002 will be a big year especially for a coaster? It was 2 years from Magnum to Mean Streak. Another 3 years to Raptor. 2 years to Mantis. And then another 4 years to MF. Do you really think 2002 will be another big year after MF in 2000? They could ride on that alone for a couple more years. I hope they get something big, but you never know. I have aot of doubts about a TA2K or 4D for 2002. Both are too much of a risk IMO at this point. Floorless(BKF), shuttles(capacity), and flying coasters(X-Flight) are out of the question.
Does anyone know why 4 of their last 6 coasters start with an M? Magnum- Mean Streak- Raptor- Mantis- Woodstock's Express- Millennium Force If this is a pattern, the next coaster will start with an M too. Maybe a hint at Michigan's Adventure. Hmmm.
