How are they going to do Row one of Raptor, what exactly do you attach the camera to and will it take away from the view?

Well, they just lost every ice cream purchase they would have had from me this season, unless they offer Toft's somewhere else. :(

I have to say that i too am dissapointed with the branded concepts in the foods department. I really haven't agreed with the industries trend in this direction. It's a sign, for me, that the foods departments are unable to create and manage their own food concepts; which are always the best (when done correctly).

Wow. All kinds of new items around the park. Everything looks very exciting. I didn't see the on-ride videos for Raptor coming either. But, I guess I'm not really surprised. That seems to be the new "thing".

Ben & Jerry's though? :sigh: :(

Oh yeah, I guess the lack of the second canyon is now confirmed too.

Re-reading the list, I don't know if it's accurate to say 'former location of Ice Cream Parlour.' Even though it's going to Ben & Jerry's, I'm not sure if there's going to be a name change.

Kinda sad to see the Discount Depot going back to Emporium, as I was looking forward to letting the kids cheap shop there, but happy that there's a new cheap shop!

Great update! So many little things that add up to great fun this summer. I'm full on having CP withdrawls now. Getting the shakes, yep.


Looking forward to Cedar Point- July 4th-5th, 2007!

Cameras on each row of Raptor? Thats interesting. I guess the inverted train style makes it a little more difficult to get the video off-train like SheiKra.

Ain't no way I'm eating at a "remolded" TGIFridays. Otherwise, it looks like some great changes are in store.

What suprises me more is that no one thought Cedar point would put cameras on one of the coasters when Geauga announced they would be doing it to one of theirs.

Thanks for the info Walt. I'm extreemly glad to hear Toft's will still be sold at the park. That was one of the only things I bought on a regular basis.

I also am glad I got my Jr. Gemini credit. It may not have been as close as some of you, but I just got my nephew to the park for the first time in 2005.

Boo hoo. I understand that pizza sells, but just because Frontier Inn is closing didn't mean they had to move it somewhere else. That's marketing though. I guess this means no more 1/2 a chicken and mashed potatoes. Atleast it is still air conditioned in there.

Yeah I'd say it is the beginning of the end for the Aquatic Stadium.

Thanks for all the updates Walt, great work.
