I've watched the POV and the first shot of the lake as you crest the lift looks awesome, then the trees whizzing by, random tunnels and fly by the station all seem like they would add some fun elements to the ride. It's definitely one I'm super excited to try.

Take note: Ride MF on the left side at night. Going up that seriously skinny lift hill with complete darkness surrounding you in that tiny open train and a massive drop off just off your shoulder is truly frightening. I'll fight every time for that left seat, especially at night!

Maybe I made the mistake of riding Fury on preview night, I don't know. It was good, but I wouldn't put it ahead of most other B&M hyper coasters. Then again, it was cold and operations were terrible. It seems to have gotten better reviews since then.

I-305 felt like an odd child of MF and Maverick. It had the speed, and the transitions, but felt like it could have done a lot more.

But, knowing that my favorite rides are Millennium Force and The Beast, those long-duration speed elements tend to score higher than pure intensity for me.

It cannot be someone working construction at the park since they have too much access. It almost has to be a full-time employee. Considering the newest picture I have seen appears to have been taken from the top of Millenium Force because you can see Skyhawk in between the camera and Mean Streak, it almost has to be someone with permission to take the photos. If you have permission to take and "leak" the photos then it might as well be done by marketing.

From what I'm seeing, we are discussing more than one different source of pictures (which have both been attributed to Tony). It's possible, but it's starting to feel a little unlikely that it can all be him.

Just wanted to mention one thing I thought was funny. One of the Social media accounts has "liked" only one other external post, and that post is none other than a previous TPR member complaining that he got banned for breaking TPR rules and sharing something from that page. Ha! :lol:

Agreed completely. My friend likes Leviathan just due to smoothness but I prefer layout, location, views, and train type much more than smoothness (I never notice it anyways). But I think both Leviathan and MF would be far below the other 2 gigas

Thanks for all the responses to my question a few pages back. Much appreciated.

I'll see if I can make it out... If I can get someone from my travel-party to join, I definitely will.... But if I have to go alone, and there's a big chance as none of the others are very big on roller-coasters, I probably won't.

I don't necessarily mind doing stuff by myself. But this one is a little bit tough, especially since I'll be at the end of a 4 week tour and I know I'll be tired as hell as it is. I'll decide on short notice...

It's good to know what the whole thing entails tho... So thanks again.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

It's looking like that first inversion will be at least as tall as Maverick, which is pretty crazy.

Obviously, this picture of Mean Streak construction is exempt from the "No Mean Streak Contruction Photos" rule because it was taken off-property.

Rest In Peace, Ohiocoasterman.

I have a question for you Cedar Point people. I would really enjoy going to Cedar Point this year for the first time, but the chances of that happening are looking rather slim at the moment. Would it be better to just wait for next year to attempt to visit (especially since Mean Streak will probably be open next year), or should I try hard to go this year?
