[url][url]So for those of us who didn't make the cut for the Feb 25th tour, what was announced?

I also figure this thread can be used for other information for 2012 as things are announced.

From the Pointbuzz Twitter:

New Premium Parking
Terror Island moving to Frontier Town (Specifics anyone?)
Returning to Fresh Cut French Fries (!!!!)
New lighting for Millennium Force, Power Tower, and Giant Wheel
New lights and audio on the Main Midway to Corkscrew
Iron Dragon Midway now Celebration Plaza - Home to Luminosity
Luminosity: 25 dancers, 3 drummers, 2 cirque performers, DJ, singers.
Interactive pre-show - Countdown to opening
40 minute show: Land Travel, Sea Travel, Space Travel, Finale. Then fireworks and dance party with DJ
Luminosity stage will be used during the day for new PEANUTS show.

So discuss and add as necessary!

I feel like you would be able to use the portion of thunder canyon that is not used up by cornstalkers for terror island.

John did not specify an exact location for Terror Island.

One other thing that John announced today that everyone should be excited about is that they are hiring 2 additional full-time maintenance staff. That equals less downtime for rides. I was excited to hear that Cedar Point is investing in additional staff to give a better overall guest experience.

Actually four full time staff, two ride mechanics and two controls / electrical technicians.


I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks,

I'm really hoping this is the first step at themed areas. I'm loving everything.

You know with the stage being used for Peanuts show during the day, I wonder if there is still going to be a Snoopy skating show.

I feel like Cedar Point looked at my personal wish list, and said "OK, we'll change that."

Very much looking forward to this and the coming years...what the fresh leadership has up its sleeves. They are certainly off to a good start. :)

Yes. In fact it will be a NEW Snoopy on Ice show which debuted last Fall at Knott's.

I just got done watching the video and there's a lot of interesting stuff in it. I'm glad to see the main midway getting work done. Also the lights in the ground, that'll be very nice. They also mentioned putting down blacktop on the causeway which will deffently make that a better ride.

One thing I noticed in the Luminosity drawings is that the projector buildings that the overlord comes out of, are not in the drawings so it looks like those will be taking out.

Just out of curiosity, is anybody going to be posting pictures from the tour?

Thank you for the video. Very cool things coming to the park this year. I am fascinated by the light up concrete paths.

Dang I hope so, since I just got rehired for that show! :D
But yes it is the same show that was at Knott's last year.

I had hoped that among the new changes would be "placemaking" projects like the reshaping of the Iron Dragon Midway into a more pleasant and park-like place. This is a very encouraging sign.
