I thought the show was really good, and am happy to know I'm not going crazy. I didn't see any blueprints either. I can't wait to go to CP on August 3. I'm from Fl and haven't been there since Raptor opened.
But, I'll tell you one thing... The special "The Making Of A Coaster" was the, or close to the best special I have ever seen. It was just the type of special I had been hoping for. I was captivated by all of the technical work that went into the surveying of the land, bending track, etc. I also thought the CP special was very well done. It just helped to show that the Point really is in a league of it's own, and it's really not fair to compare some other parks to it.
I think my new major is going to be engineering now, lol. Man, those two shows really psyched me up about the whole engineering biz. I think it would be so cool to get a job for a good company. Maybe even start my own! I was really pleased with the presentation for both!
Cedar Point is definatelly one of the best parks ever. It's not over-rated and if you think that, you really need to go! I had such a great time on my 2 day visit...even my non-coaster enthusiast family did. The next 2 days, we went to Six Flags Worlds of Adventure and decided it was no where as close to Cedar Point's stature.

I guess it's because I worked at a theme park for 8 years. I found most of it interesting, and I was surprised about the inspection of Meanstreak - I was surprised that they check out each part of the ride every day.
