Guide to The Point has posted photos and videos of Cedar Point's new Wicked Twister, an Intamin Impulse coaster, on the newly designed site. Photos are from opening day. The video clips offer a view of one ride cycle as seen from the Aquatic Stadium ramp, and the entire B-roll reel distributed on media day, including POV and reverse-POV.

Ummm...a little off-topic there.

Regarding WT...one has to wonder why Intamin waited 3 years to implement its double twist.

Whoever said they waited? Its a next generation Impulse improvement and really nothing more..Original concept caqlled for what its predeccesor(s) has and CP's version is next genteration Impulse...A nice improvement at that :)

I guess because they didn't think it needed them.

Good job. It is nice to be able to see pictures and videos of another park/ride that you can't see at your home park.

If B&M or a park decided to put two barrel rolls on an invert, would that be a new generation of B&M invert? I don't think so. This is just a small improvement to a coaster already built like CP has almost always done. Just bigger and "better".

I believe that CP has broken many barriers. Not just little improvement. First one to make the HYPERCOASTER, Magnum XL 200. First over 200 feet. First to make the GIGA COASTER, Millennium Force. First to break 300 feet. Those are pretty big milestones.

They took a wood out-and-back coaster design and made it higher. Or you could say they just took half and Gemini and made it higher designed like an out-and-back wooden racer. So what? And Superman: The Escape broke 400' first. If you're talking about full-circuit, I'm sure SD2K was in the plans at the same time. Somebody, would have done it. It doesn't mean either are the best anyways.

Great photos. Really! The sun peaking through the track and train and the one at dawn is visually stunning......reminds me of the CP ad played at the end of the season in the snow.

To be honest, I was a little disappointed by the announcement about WT, as most Buzzers were in the winter (ie: complaints for a 'full circuit' coaster). I, for one, have warmed to the idea of this coaster, and I haven't ridden the thing yet in two trips. We are fortunate to have this park in it's location (ie: THANK GOD!).

I believe they are both in the top three in best steel coasters. Millennium Force is #1 and Magnum is #3. ENOUGH SAID!

I don't think that's everyone's list. Most people think Superman: Ride of Steel or Expedition Ge Force or X are the best steel coasters. I like Magnum more than MF. Am I wrong? Are they wrong for having those at 1 and 3? I don't think so.

I got the pleasure of riding Wicked Twister on opening day. Let me tell you it is one heck of a coaster.

I agree with you whole heartedly. Magnum is my favorite over all of them. MF is my 3rd favorite coaster. But you have to admit they both belong in the top ten.

I wouldn't say "most" Koaster King...

I know that it's not everyone's choice, but the Amusement Today's Golden Ticket is the most represented of all the regions of the U.S. MF is still on top, with Maggie at 3rd.

With that said, I doubt they will be in those positions in the next 1-3 years.

Oops! Should have said most people that have ridden both. Sorry for that one. It's not like everyone gets to little old SFNE, Holiday Park, and SFMM everyday. I doubt X was included yet in that poll. I doubt enough people have made visits to HP and SFNE yet to ride the other two. MF is still a nice, breezy little ride. :)
