  1. What if Cedar Point removed Power Tower (S&S Space Shot) to make room for a new Top Thrill Dragster queue/station extension and relocated the ride to Kings Island with the new spin shot seats on two of the towers? Drop Tower could be removed as part of the eventual Action Zone redo. I will admit this idea is a bit out there.
  2. RMC's 208 RetraK might make sense in the future. https://www.rockymtnconstruction.com/wood-coaster-refurbishment/ "208 RetraK is our latest innovation in track replacement and is based on our proven Ibox and Topper track designs. 208 RetraK will last for years and eliminate the need for continuous inspection, repair, and replacement of traditional wooden track. Additionally, 208 RetraK is able to utilize a rides existing trains, mechanical system, and controls to deliver a smoother ride, reduced downtime, and improved wheel longevity at a reasonable price. Custom 208 RetraK is precision manufactured utilizing RMC’s laser measurement system, CNC plasma cut, and patented semi-automated welding technology. 208 RetraK is manufactured with premium grade weathered steel to match the existing coaster profile and installs effortlessly to existing structure. 208 RetraK can be utilized as a small track upgrade in a troubled area of a coaster, or even as a full coaster renovation. Simple track upgrades of 150’ or more can be installed throughout a ride and added onto year after year. A complete circuit replacement at one time is also possible. 208 RetraK can be installed turnkey by RMC’s factory team or by the park with RMC providing technical support."

  4. I am hoping to see a clone of this at Six Flags Great America in 2023 or 2024. The layout lines up nicely with the Buccaneer Battle/Hometown Park/Demon Funnel Cakes area. It looks like the coaster could go over the maintenance path and the Go Karts or the Go Karts could be removed. The entry/exit portal could go under the extreme airtime hill.

  6. I think the goal is to open up access to the beach. I could see a new path along the beach with some bars, restaurants, and shops. The old pathway (between the ferris wheel and the kids areas) and some flat rides could be removed for a new coaster.
  7. I am guessing this is a ride removal announcement. Also, it will be 4:30 pm ET and not 6 pm ET.

  9. Not yet at least, but there is still time. It is a little concerning that the financial performance snapshot wasn't released after July 4th this year. I guess we will find out how bad the quarter was on Wednesday. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4439293-cedar-fair-facing-higher-costs-higher-debt-and-lower-attendance
