Thinking? Bruh, they pulled it down last off season.

Ha! That's awesome! Wait, was it not there for the Valravn season and I didn't even notice? lol


It was taken down when they were redoing Hotel Breakers. I think 2 years ago?? I'm glad they did and are rebuilding the new tower. It was much needed.

It's interesting... I was just looking at the various updated Cedar Fair websites, specifically their Park Maps, and noticed that although CP has updated their site, their Park Map is still old. And not even last year old. While it does have Valravn on it, is still has Shoot the Rapids on it, and RipCord in its old spot. Additionally, Mean Streak is still alive, a train racing down the lift hill (the wrong direction at that!) Given all of the other parks that have updated sites have their updated Park Maps as well, this seems peculiar to me. I wonder if CP is still holding off the reveal of their updated Park Map, for some particular reason? Hmmm...

Does anyone know with the new/expanded water park opening has this changed the Soak City/Resorts parking area that used to enter nearest to Maverick? I will be there before the water park is open but not sure if the parking lot would still be usable or has changed/moved any with the expansion.

Thanks!

Ditto, dreynolds1982, I will be driving from Charlotte to Cedar Point on 5/18/17 and would like to know as well.

I know in the past, you couldn't go pass the guard gate near Soak City as that was Hotel Breakers guest parking only. Normally, I would just park near Gemini or in the Soak City lot, but now it appears that CP Shores has a new separate entrance that took up some of the old SC parking so the fact that you and I will be traveling before the water park opens, I'm not sure how this all plays out.

Incidentally, I called the toll free number on website but they had no details to give me regarding parking :(

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Based on the webcam it looks like there have been zero changes to the parking lot. The new additions seem to be taking up space previously occupied by Challenge Park.

However, the parking area adjacent to Magnum will be preferred parking, according to the plans in the link quoted below.

Okay, but that's a brand new lot so there's most likely nothing changing with the existing lot.

Oops, I forgot that Challenge Park was in the spot of the proposed new lot.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

The Soak City lot has been renovated, and the Preferred Parking/Handicap Parking was added where Ripcord formerly sat.
