Cedar Point's Next Coaster: Do You Think It Would More Likely Be An Intamin Or a B&M?

Wednesday, November 23, 2011 10:54 PM

So I was wondering, realistically, do you think Cedar Point will be getting a new coaster in the nearer future? And if they do, which manufacturer do you think it would be? An Intamin, or a B&M?

A awesome Intamin Roller coaster would be great. As for the type of design it remains (UNKNOWN). How about a Kids coaster and a Adult/Teens coaster in 2013?

Those B&M wing coasters are getting pretty popular. ;)

With Cedar Fairs problems with Intamin, I have to go with B&M. Out of the B&M coasters, I would like to see a Dive Coaster most of all. That would be a great fit into Cedar Point and Dive Coasters are not similar to CPs B&Ms now. A floorless would be too similar to Raptor and Mantis. Also, there are no Dive coasters in the immediate area.

IMO, a dive coaster would be great for CP. it would bring B&M back with a unique coaster. I do NOT want another Intamin and a Dive Coaster would fit perfectly if CP goes with B&M.

I just feel that if CP was going to get a Dive, that they would have already.

I could possibly see us getting a wing rider though.

With SFGA and Dollywood getting a wing coaster, I don't think a wing coaster would be a good fit. Dive coasters are more unique and Wing riders seem to be shorter because of the amount of space it takes up. Also, a Dive coaster has not opened in the area or even the country in years, where 2 Wing riders are opening this season.

I do have to agree with Twisted Wicker, I could see CP getting a prototype. I'm not too sure about it going where DT and Space Spiral are.

I don't think you'll ever see a dive coaster. TTD already does something similar to that, minus the twist on the drop.

And, minus the fact the ride would last longer then 34 sec., or however long TTD lasts.

IMO, a dive coaster and TTD offer a very different experience. A dive coaster has floorless trains, it also goes upside down, it holds you facing down for a couple seconds, and the height is shorter and less fast which is more family friendly.

I was finally able to ride Sheikra at Busch Gardens Tampa back in October and I can agree that it's a FAR more different ride experience than Dragster. In fact, it is now high on my list of favorite rides. That drop in the back row is phenomenal. I wouldn't mind seeing one at CP.......even though it's highly unlikely.

I really do like dive machines, but the rides themselves are not very intense. Griffon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg is a very fun ride, but is fairly tame. Also, the track length of these dive machines have not been over 3000 feet. So in general, these types of rides are very short.

While I would love to see a B&M, They're awfully large. As much fun as a large, wide open ride that goes over midways and other rides would be, it's highly unlikely.

Why not something from the S&S coaster catalog? While not large, the Free Fly and El Loco models look pretty fun. The Free Fly could be a nice new family coaster while El Loco looks a little more intense for the slightly older crowds. On top of that they still have the 4D design which is severely underused and not found in the immediate area.

I would think a B&M dive coaster. There are a lot of Wing Riders going up, the last Dive coaster that was put up was Griffon at Busch Gardens in Virginia. A dive machine would be a great fit for a smaller area. Maybe the Turnpike car area that has been a rumor floating around.

Well technically the last dive coaster installed was Krake at Heide-Park in Germany. And there were still 2 others that opened before Krake that were also after Griffon.

Just saying :)
