Any word or thought on a ride for 2006???

Monday, July 11, 2005 7:44 PM

In light of recent posts of markings around the mine ride and dirt piles by MF first bank turn, does anyone suspect a new ride in 2006?

It makes sense for that area of the park to get a new ride. It's a ghost town around there and it would be nice to bring some of the crowd that way.

Plus, doesn't CP announce their next new ride in July?

Just a thought.

By the way, I haven't posted on this site in 3 years and forgot my old user name and password.

Ummm not to get anyones hopes up but i think i seen a footer behind where the swans used to be. But i am not sure of anything i didnt get a good look. So maybe someone can get a picture or something of what i seen. You could probably see a good look at it if u went behind the swings where the haunted house is during hollow wekends.

Although people generally frown on a "what's next" thread, it may just be late enough in the season to start discussing it. Holiday World's announcement is Wednesday, World's of Fun's secret is out, so I'm sure many more parks will follow.

The earliest announcement from Cedar Point we've seen in recent years was on July 22, 1999 for Millennium Force. But we did know about Dragster's footers opening day 2002 without the official announcement.

ttdragster16, this alleged footer wasn't that large concrete pad beside the swan pond, was it?

Man I am stoked...I go to school 45 minutes from Wof (Patriot for 2006), and my home park is SFGAm (rumored Dive Machine for 2006), and if CP got a new coaster that would be simply amazing...

No it was farther back in the corner. It is not where the loading platform was for the swans but it was like farther back behind the pond. I seen it while I was in line for Thunder Canyon.

Was it the large concrete pad beside that little brown shed? That's where they used to store the swan boats while maintenance worked on them.

Where are the bathrooms at???

Yes but on the concrete pad beside the brown shed there is a big cement block with the metal bolts stickin out of the top.

It would make sense something going in the former Swan Boat location. I can't wait to go to the park and see the supposed footer.

If this were a footer, wouldn't we be seeing construction vehicles and a lot more digging going on? Why would they just put in 1 footer and nothing else?

Opening Day 2005 brought us news that Cedar Point was planning to build a new water ride in 2005. Swans Boats were even removed from the park in preparation for this ride. Soon after the park decided to scrap this ride and instead went with maXair, which openend on May 7, 2005. This leads many enthusiasts to believe this planned water rides is still on its way."

Yeah, but enthusiasts like us look at any type of ground work, even landscaping and related issues as construction for a grand new coaster. *cough*Millennium Island*cough*

I think the park did a good job of throwing those that believed it off track. I personally think the water ride is bogus and won't come for a few more years at least, and will replace WWL.

Three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40, and a hammer. Duct tape if it moves and it shouldn't, WD-40 if it doesn't move and should, and the hammer as the last resort.

The swan boat removal may have been in preperation for a water ride that never came, so it could have been a loss with no gain, yet. And I don't follow 1 random footer popping up...

I think the "footer" that you saw was all thats left of the maintnance(sp) crane that was used to lower the swan boats into and out of the water.

what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

That's possible...hey ttdragster16, did the concrete pad look relatively new?
Or did it show any sign of age? *** Edited 7/12/2005 3:05:33 AM UTC by TTD 120mph***

Could be I dont no I just wanted you guys to see what I was seeing. But we cannot see if any work has been done back in the woods by WWL there could be many footers back there for all we know. Plus with the so called new construction markings in the area kind of leads me on to believe that there could be something coming in back there soon.

Monday, July 11, 2005 11:08 PM

I didnt get a very good look at it. I wanted someone with a camera to go take some pics because I really didnt get a good look.

I'm hoping maybe its a footer for Cedar Points new Floorless coaster. That would be sweet.
