It would be perfect if someone could get a pic of Orion at night with the Orion constellation in the sky.

Can someone post a photo of the Ball joint vs what they use now. Just so I and whoever else is curious can see

 

The first incarnation of hulk had ball joints, Kumba at Busch gardens, rougarou/mantis at Cedar Point to name a few

Now they use flange plates, their tolerances are much tighter now than when they used the ball joints, the ball joints allowed them to “flex” the supports if the footing wasn’t in the exact place it needed to be

Technically, it says "more than 45 guests have ridden it," which is not wrong. :P

Is it possible to add another expensive coaster this quick?

No it’s not likely they will not do this. Best we can hope for is that we remain on a 3 year coaster cycle (which depends on how well this new coaster performs). No CedarFair Park has gotten back to back coasters in years.

Incorrect, wicked twister opened in 2002 at Cedar Point and exactly one year later top thrill dragster opened.

How’s that incorrect? I said in years and 18 years ago seems significant. This was during the coaster wars & Cedar Point is the flagship park.

Looks like a lot of activity happening on the ground... buy I can't make out what they're doing.

When I was looking at some air shots I saw something that looked like a piece to a tunnel. Saw that piece moving earlier today. Any ideas what that could be?

Something to keep in mind:

Thunder Road was removed in 2015 and Copperhead Strike didn't open until 2019.

Skyrider closed in 2014 and Yukon Striker didn't open until 2019. 

I do hope that something fills The Vortex plot of land sooner rather than later, but I wouldn't get your hopes up since we are getting Orion next year. Also, some people on other forum sites brought up the idea of something like Forbidden Frontier at Cedar Point.

Edit: I posted this in the appropriate thread.

From the Flight of Fear/CHAOS queue area:

This thing is massive!!!  And for those wondering, it’s just about the same height as The Racer’s lift hill.

Awesome pic! But I have a stupid question... why didn't they extend the cat walk to the end of that last track piece?

The catwalk comes in sections, if they put up another section there would be nothing to support it.
