Cedar Point - Sandusky, OH

Post by jokey » 30 Apr 2012, 14:27

Does anyone think that Cedar Point will get anything in 2013 coaster wise? You would think that they would get a new coaster because they haven't gotten one since 2007 with Maverick.

The big rumour is that the green Wing rider track that's sitting at the B&M plant in Ohio might be making it's way to Cedar Point but then again every piece of coaster track that is just lying around is rumoured to go there...hopefully we will be seeing pictures of markerings/land clearing in a a couple weeks.

Isn't CP more strapped for space than CW, I don't think they have room for another coaster atleast not without removing attractions?
Niagara Falls deserves a world class amusement/theme park and Marineland is not it!

A wingrider would be perfect for Cedar Point. They need another sit down inverting roller coaster.

Looking at satellite imagery it sure don't look like it... maybe if they remove some of the camp-ground and parking otherwards they are pretty much close to max capacity for coasters.

The same thing has been said MANY times about CW. "There isn't enough room for a giga at CW!" was said many times before Leviathan was unveiled, and it looks like they found room for it! If there doesn't appear to be room, then they will make room.

According to screamscape, Ceder Point is getting 2 coasters. Probably won't happen though.

If you think Cedar Point is landlocked, you are wrong. There are several examples of parks with no room that still manage to fit big coasters. Hersheypark is an example. They just built Skyrush over top of other coasters that go over top of other coasters. Cedar Point isn't even close to being as crammed in as Hershey, and Hershey isn't even the worst.

Cedar Point ‏ @cedarpoint
Celebration Plaza is expanding & WildCat will be removed. Don't worry, new rides & coasters are always in our future. http://bit.ly/K1EWRR

Cedar Point has basically confirmed that they are going to get a new coaster :)

That's not really a confirmation that a new coaster will be coming next year...the future could mean next year,five years from now or 10 but the real meat and potatoes of that story is that The Wildcat will be no more. I only had a couple of rides on it and was never really impressed with it but still it goes to show you that Cedar Fair is not above removing older coasters.

Hopefully it will be replaced with a high-capacity family coaster. The line never looked that long but standing in it took forever...

Maybe a spinning coaster of some kind...I have always had fun on the ones that I have been on...maybe the rumour of Cedar Point getting a family coaster AND a bigger coaster has some merit to it.

The line for the fly also never looks that long but it takes a while to actually get on to the ride.
