I think its the lighting. I think Millennium Force could also use a tuneup.

I have a relatively small window to be able to go this year (no later than July), so it all just depends on how much free time me and my parents have before that time. I'm really just stuck on the whole Mean Streak thing. Make the long trip to Ohio this year only to want to go back a year later, or just save up all my excitement for next year. I guess I could stick with just Dorney and Kings Dominion (and possibly Carowinds) for another year, but I'm worried that I will miss the opportunity to ride/do something at Cedar Point if anything closes this year.


I'm on the same boat with you. I was planning a weekend trip for May-June, but me and a friend decided to wait until 2018. If I was in your shoes, do the pilgrimage next year. If you think you don't have the chance after next year, go for it.

It's just the lighting in the photo. I was in the park working today and can confirm Maverick has not gotten painted.

You're currently working at the park?! Tell us every detail you know about Mean Streak now!!!

/s

But seriously, if I was working at CP right now, I know exactly where I'd be spending my 15 minute breaks!

Not like many of you care, except for those like myself, but Cedar Point posted a new water park update on their FB.

ANYONE WHO POSTS A CONSTRUCTION PHOTO OF MEAN STREAK, REGARDLESS IF IT IS YOUR PHOTO OR NOT, WILL BE BANNED FROM TPR FOREVER.

Is that clear?

Good.

The only exception to this would be if Cedar Point themselves releases official construction photos or if someone from Cedar Point takes you to the construction site and makes it VERY CLEAR TO EVERYONE that it is ok to take said photo.


We got permission from Tony Clark before we posted any of those photos. He said you can post as long as it's not taken on park property.

I'm glad someone copied Rob's post. I was going back though pages looking for it, as I couldn't remember how his restriction was written.

First of all, no you didn't. Second of all, Tony Clark doesn't run our forums.

Darn. Well hopefully it's in the cards soon. It would be a good idea to make Maverick all nice and shiny for when Mean Streak opens. And I agree with another poster that MF could use some paint too.... Actually come to think of it so could Magnum and Wicked Twister.
