Was just looking at the new live web cams and saw the coolest shot I've seen so far. It was looking straight down from atop Power tower. You can watch the "drop down" side and "shoot up" side enjoy their ride!

Pretty cool!!

Love these new cams!!

Thanks for the heads up! That is a great view. This hi-def cameras sure are amazing. I like how you can see corkscrew and Iron Dragon in this shot as well.

They actually had a different angle of PT last week that was straight down but in between all 4 towers. You could see the people get on and watch all 4 towers. It was pretty cool. I'm loving all the new cam views.

These new cams are awesome! I've been working a lot this year, and only have been to Cedar Point 3, maybe 4 times this year. This helps retain my sanity.

I wonder if these cameras are moved by a person or by remote control? There have been so many views on the cameras that have been great.

I do believe they are motorized and controlled through a simple web portal or desktop application that Tony Clark (amongst others) has access to.

In the 2nd stream I can see Millenium's pretzel, with Gemini to the right and Mean Streak behind the pretzel. How do they make it appear that Millenium's lift hill is behind Mean Streak?

The new live cam is sweet but if they take down the old ones like it has been suggested they will eventually I'll miss having the guaranteed view of the parking lot that Dragster cam gives. How full the parking lot is can make the difference between going or staying home.

That is what I was thinking to. I usually base my decision on how full the lot is base don what I see from this cam!

When in doubt, just go and have a good time. Better to be at CP than to sit at home.

Unless the third location is on top of dragster.

Not when you spend over 90% of the day waiting in lines.
