That brown track is Hershey track, that where I took the picture and the track for the giga was moved and put inside to be painted

I'm talking about the gray track against the building. That's the MCT track that is KI's. Your pic that you say is where the KI track was with the brown curved track is taken of that brighter blue section of the building off to the left of the Midway Mayhem pic. Here is another pic from them showing the area you are saying where the KI track was. The same curved pieces are sitting there.

^Yes I did. I don’t really know what it could be (I don’t think it’ll be a standup type ride. Maybe seats facing away from the track?), but it’s exciting that they’re possibly making a brand new coaster type. It seems like it would be a good fit for CP if they every decide to have a coaster interact more with the water (at least just based off the name)

I know Tony Clark has always been joking about getting an Aquatrax, and maybe since Cedar Fair is B&M’s playground, they will build their first water coaster at Cedar Point.

Edit: Since Carowinds recently removed their Intamin River Rapids Ride, maybe they are also a possibility for receiving this new coaster... if it is a water coaster.

How much flour do they use when baking a normal giga? 

I'm glad we're finally asking the hard questions... It appears we've stumbled upon the record that counts, y'all: World's First Gluten Free Giga Coaster!

And isn't that Surf Coaster filing somewhat old at this point?

Was at the park today... went up the Eiffel Tower just to get a quick look.  Here’s a pic.

BTW - I hate the lower deck of the ET...  that flooring needs replaced - it buckles in spots and scares me to death.  I was weak in the knees the entire time I was up there.  The upper deck isn’t nearly as scary.

I agree! I don't scare easily but I feel genuinely unsafe on the lower deck. The top deck feels more sturdy, the floors aren't as rusted and don't buckle as much, plus if you fall through the top floor, the second floor MIGHT catch you lol

Every time I go up there It seems like they take us right to the top. When is there the option to go to the lower floor?

Shaggy are you talking about the 50 ft observation deck that has been closed to the public since probably the '80s?

In my opinion, the reason people are scared is because if the floor breaks, there's nothing to break your fall except the roof of the 50 ft platform or the ground.

 

 

Ya know, I wonder if you jumped of the 265 ft platform if you could find any way to make a landing in the Oktoberfest pond!!.......idk..... that certainly would be pretty wild!!

Still hard to believe they can actually make a lift hill taller than the top observation deck of the Eiffel Tower. When I was a kid going up on the tower, I never would have believed it was possible. Just another reason to be excited for this giga. It's still a marvel of technology. 3oo feet up will never fail to be shocking to me.

After looking at photos online it does appear that the top observation area does consist of two decks. I don't recall ever going to the lower one myself, but I may have in the past.

Lower one is only ever open when it’s raining, so you don’t get wet

In my experience it's never been an "option."
You just get off where the elevator stops. Always random for me but I'm guessing it's based on how many people are already on each level

You do realize the elevator on the left (when waiting in line)goes to the lower level only, and the elevator on the right goes to the top level only, right? There’s no random option as to what level your elevator stops at.  It just depends which level they decide to operate for the day.  I can’t remember the last time I was there when both levels were open simultaneously.

Nope, never realized that. However (like a lot of people on here apparently) I only recently realized there were two upper levels.

No need to talk down to everyone. Especially with topics as pointless as elevators. :lol: But thank you for that information; I didn't know that either.

I’ve seen both open. It’s rare, only when they are VERY busy, and when they are overflowing with staff. 

Also, I don’t think that @Shaggy was talking down. You’d be surprised how many don’t know that the elevators go to different floors. For the record, most of the time the top (right side elevator) is that one that’s open usually. Most of the time the bottom level is open on rainy days since it’s protected by the upper floor.
