Did you forget the comments about there being more to thrill rides than roller coasters, and that it will appeal to teens? ^

I don't see how a new coaster doesn't appeal to teens.

Just because Dick Kinzel said that there's more to thrill rides than roller coasters doesn't mean that it won't be a coaster. If I'm correct, he said that the new 2010 ride "won't get you wet." Of course he meant that "It won't get you wet, it will get you soaked." It could very well be another one of those statements where he means the complete opposite of what he says...

...Look at the times he's said that he will retire, yet it doesn't look like it's going to happen anytime soon.

Did you forget Aquatrax?

Did you forget that was tweeted? And CP was throwing out clues just to mess with people at that point. You all want a coaster so you make yourself think it will be.

I don't know, the evidence is pointing at a coaster at the moment. You can't take everything that Dick Kinzel says by heart. Again, he said that the 2010 addiction "Won't get you wet." Either way, there are markings in that area and flags around Ocean Motion that extend out into the beach. I say that there's a 70% chance for a new coaster in 2011.

Did you forget that hints and clues are just hints and clues. If they came out with the actual exact information, they would not be hints and clues anymore, just the announcement of the actual ride.

What is the fun in that?

There's an ungoing discussion going on at Pbuzz. Lots of people saw the link on the US patent site, which is now MIA.

There are other sites confirming it as well....http://newsplusnotes.blogspot.com/2010/08/all-way-up-into-stratosoar.html

EDIT

Here is the LINK

I'm wondering if the "Strata" portion of the name would refer to the height? (a la Strata Coaster = 400') A 400' Star Flyer? It seems to fit with most of Dick's clues... Interesting.

I personally don't like the name at all, nor do I see it "appealing to the teenage market". A kiddie coaster for the Valleyfair expansion? At least I hope so...

The teen market won't care what you name it. As long as its big and exciting the teen market will love it. I know this for a fact :D

Hm. The whole "Strata" thing is weird. Why would a coaster be named Strata, dot dot dot, and not be a strata coaster? I doubt Cedar Point would build another over 400 foot ride though. Too much!

Hm... It says the maximum hight is 96 meters which according to Google is 314.96063 feet. :D

lol, so did Cedar Point ever have a star flyer?

Nope but the park did have one of these on the beach at one point in time.

Hmm, this would work for just about everything Dick Kenzel has said... A ride like that would appeal to the teen market (despite the fact that the name is as awful as sin), it brings back memories (to an extent), and it would be considered a thrill ride. Would it fit in the area of the park where all of the construction markets are? Yes.

I could see this happening.

That ride looks pretty intense! Especially being that high up in the air!
