That was my working theory. Cedar Fair has added some flats to various parks over the past few years when not launching new coasters.Is it most likely that a flat of some kind will replace this? I can’t see them adding another coaster in such a small space.
My condolences @Freak. This must be a tough time for you. Attendance and revenue are down at your favorite park of all time which houses your favorite coaster of all time, Steel Vengeance.Cedar Point Parks just reported a 2% decline in attendance for the first six months of 2018. Also reported a 1% decline in revenue.
It’s okay. I’m more worried about bigger things in life than a theme park a couple thousand miles from me. It’s not like I obsess over some total stranger’s opinion about which rides or parks they prefer.
I'm glad you're taking it well bud.It’s okay. I’m more worried about bigger things in life than a theme park a couple thousand miles from me. It’s not like I obsess over some total stranger’s opinion about which rides or parks they prefer.
That'd seem pretty unlikely as Knott's already used to have an Enterprise--the Loop Trainer, located where Supreme Scream is today (and before that, there was a short lived XK-1!)Lame. I love the enterprises. At least move it to Knott's or something so I can enjoy it.
Whoa. Glad nobody got injured.
Update: tire is a drive tire from the break run.
Two things:Whoa. Glad nobody got injured.
How is it that Steel Vengeance, which many are saying is the greatest coaster in the world, let to a decline in revenue and attendance for Cedar Point?
Math doesn't add up. Operational issues discouraged the GP? It had tons of media fanfare and enthusiasm from coaster enthusiasts and GP.
Honestly, this latest piece of news would discourage me from riding this beast.
Good question. I would just assume people aren't familiar with coasters like we are so it doesn't excite them?How is it that Steel Vengeance, which many are saying is the greatest coaster in the world, let to a decline in revenue and attendance for Cedar Point?
I still tell people that the Texas Giant is fun here locally and they tell me how rough it is being wooden and they're shocked it's still around and not torn down yet.Two things:
Weather - yes I know it's always touted out, but the weather was unseasonably cool and rainy May through June this year. Anecdotal evidence shows that more guests are coming now once it's warmer.
Retrofit - there's this thought that "it's just Mean Streak still" that they have to contend with. As more people ride and talk about the ride the more others will realize it's not mean streak or a mean streak that inverts.
Lol Yeesh. I guess Cedar Point blew all their budget on Steel Vengeance & going really, really small for 2019. Well they're actually still blowing their budget considering it's still having major issues. They're going have to RMC the RMC.Dinosaurs Alive will close on September 3rd for Forbidden Frontier.

Except that Ghost Time Alive is a seasonal addition to the park, not the official annual addition. This just seems like a rather strange choice. Financially though, it makes sense. I just don't see how this is going to move the needle for Cedar Point, that's all.It seems to me, it's a very much expanded version of the rather popular Ghost Town Alive from Knotts.
