Sounds like maybe a similar thing to Ghost Town Alive in some capacity? Like you get these physical challenges from the citizens of the frontier? Hard to tell right now, but that'd be cool.

OMG. I'll bet that is EXACTLY what it is. That honestly makes the most sense. Ghost Town Alive has been INSANELY popular at Knott's Berry Farm, another Cedar Fair property, and it would actually make sense to bring this over to Cedar Point to give people some fun non-coaster things to do during their day.

If you don't mind on-and-off rain, today seems like the perfect day to be at Cedar Point -- I've never seen the parking lot so empty!

And if this is anything to go by, Wicked Twister finally had the longest line in the park on a technicality:

This is exactly how disappointments like Kings Island announcing the Antique Cars happen. People post stuff like this, over-hyping and over-expecting something and then in reality, when it just becomes an "interactive game" played in the old Dinosaurs Alive area with no "amusement ride" factor in it at all, people get disappointed.

It was really frustrating for me watching everyone lose-their-shit over the Kings Island announcement when there was NOTHING WRONG with it, simply because a bunch of people on the internet built it up more than what the park ever promised or teased about.

I worry that the same thing is going to happen here.

People are already talking about "building stuff" and "zip lines" and there no evidence AT ALL about any of that happening!

The freaking clue was a pencil. Which could be as simple as being used on a score card that you'll keep while playing the interactive games and going on tasks around this new area.

Seriously people, the more you post things like "I think they'll be a zipline" the more that turns into "Fake News" and next thing you know we'll have Trump in office for another four years. So let's STOP with the made-up crap so that doesn't happen! Ok? Thank you.

I am kidding, I have absolutely no idea what's coming up. But I'm sure it will be awesome, at Cedar Point!

Or writing stuff down as part of the tasks. Knott's stuff is literally "run around with a stick horse", playing bingo, doing scavenger hunts, and spending a lot of time interacting with people in character. If that's the future of theme parks, much as I felt after doing the video game rides at HubZero in Dubai, I am extremely not interested.

In other news... it would appear after scrolling through my Instagram feed that Dragster opened tonight with it’s shiny new cable. Queue Times doesn’t show this, but that’s probably because it never needed to post a wait time above 0 minutes today. :lol:

...it could also be somewhat temporary if we learned anything from Dollywood! :?r

I mean, thankfully, Adventure Mountain was sold, relocated, and reconfigured instead of being demolished. I would love to see a super-amazing new ropes course in a US theme park.

Exciting news, I'll be honest I was curious if it would be open soon but figured that most people here knew just as much as I did about when it would be open and I didn't want to be horribly annoying. Hoping to get on it tomorrow, last time I rode it there was 2004 and there was a 2 hour line.
I will probably like it a lot more if there is a quicker wait time.
