  1. On the Cedar Point Webcam if you look closely to the left hand side, you can see they put up a wooden fence in the area near Wicked Twister. More specifically it is up around the area where the old stadium was where for the last few seasons they had a stage and grass area there. Its also where they had one of the VIP lounges last year. This also isn't the first time a fence was put up there. If you may recall, they put a fence up there after they tore down the stadium for the construction of the stage that was put there. It makes me wonder, why are they putting a fence up there now? Are they building a new stage for later this year? Are they not going to use that area at all this year? Could it be for an even bigger project that includes Wicked Twister's plot of land? If you look closely, you can see the fence also goes into part of the midway as well so basically the pathway there will be in half this season. It'll be interesting to see what this becomes.

  2. One thing I've been thinking of lately is a gravity group family woodie. They haven't added a family coaster in years and it is different enough from Blue Streak. Think Kentucky Flyer, but a little taller and have longer trains for capacity reasons. It would be different enough from blue streak.

  4. I honestly think it will be a family coaster as the plot of land is perfect for one, and Cedar Point lacks many family coasters. Something like a MACK multi-launch like Manta at SeaWorld San Diego or a GCI wooden rollercoaster would really work great there. The later could be a bit extreme for a family coaster, but the height requirement would be low enough for some younger kids. The only issue with a wooden coaster on the boardwalk, however, is that it would block views of Lake Erie.

  7. My guess is the stones are having park history etched into them. Could be just text, could be images, there is a lot that could be done.

  8. It would theoretically be very simple to implement, only needing at most 3 sensors per ride (1 at main entrance, 1 at FastLane entrance, 1 at exit). Maybe count again at the merge between FastLane and main line. The system would run itself, so no need for the crew to periodically scan the queue and guess, and it should be relatively accurate and reliable.

  10. I bought my platinum pass at Kings Dominion at the beginning of the year with dining and drink. I used it at KD that weekend and Carowinds the next weekend. They gave me a new pass card, so it was definitely the one that was used in Jan. At KI last weekend my drink plan was showing up invalid. It had something on the screen that it was fir limited dates or something like that. I went to guest relations, showed them my credit card charge from Jan and they fixed it. It worked after that.

  11. They could even go the Disney route and sell special dinner or dessert packages to go with fireworks shows as well. Could become a great money making venue for them.

  12. And R&R Creative Design still exists. So does the original ride system. Just sayin, KI, just sayin.

  13. Re-open the International Restaurant. A lot of new, beautiful memories could be made there, dining with that amazing view of the Eiffel Tower. And talk about "park pride" - the older generations that remember eating there, or people who worked there - it could really be something special. It could be an amazing place to propose to that special someone, to spend New Year's Eve, or even renting it out for private parties (or heck, as a wedding venue).

  15. I agree thatCedar Fair really needs to figure out how to report accurate wait times. Also, Kings Island needs to do something with those interactive display boards throughout the park that mostly don’t work. Those boards are supposed to show wait times, but they literally don’t do anything.

  16. If they don't have the equipment to report accurate wait times, then don't bother with it. All that does is leads to guest frustration. Here's what I find so strange though. I've found that when you ask the person at the queue entrance how long the wait is, usually their estimate is reasonably accurate. Am I alone on that? So in my experience the boots on the ground have a good handle on it, they just need access to keep the app updated themselves.

  19. I'd really like to see a retheme of Boo Blasters. It's been what, 11-12 years now? I think it's time for something different and perhaps a return to a more "classic" dark ride - No guns, more animatronics, just a nice themed ride through. I'd also like to get away from the spooky/haunted theme. It would be nice to return to something similar to Enchanted Voyage and Smurfs. A fun, light-hearted ride that the whole family could ride. Peanuts would be fine, but a brand new creation/story could be fun too.

  20. I'd like to see a larger shift towards more themed attractions and lands. They are definitely stepping in the right direction with how Mystic Timbers and Orion were, but each of those rides still feel like there is something missing, a story. Sure, Mystic Timbers has a shell of a story and Orion has one present, but neither of them makes you feel as if you are part of their story. Obviously, we would all like to see something along the lines of Hagrid's at Islands of Adventure or Galaxy Edges at DHS, but realistically that's not happening. That being the case I would still like to see the greater theming of lands and/or a retheming of old lands to either better fit their theme (Rivertown, & Oktoberfest) or to change it all together (Action Zone).

  21. Sounds like I really need to ride at night and/or in the back. Not had that pleasure yet. In terms of the Millie comparison, I still have to give Millie the nod for a few reasons. The sprawling cloverleaf layout makes all those long fast turns cover so much real estate and really get you turned around so that it's hard to keep track of what's next. Just this year (1st rode in 2002) was I finally able to remember the order of each element. A big reason why I've always loved The Beast. It is also smooth as glass after all these years-I don't think I'd feel comfortable hopping right back on Orion after getting off. Could ride MF all day. Also, despite having a lower ride height that allows my 7 year old daughter to ride (her new fave), the 2-seater trains with that little lap bar give such an exposed feeling and connection to the track. JMO of course.
