I was surprised to see a Coca-Cola bin, the one under Magnum's station... Isn't Cedar Point still with Pepsi? And did they give a reason for cutting down all those trees?
Considering it's under Magnum's station, only employees see it, so it doesn't matter. CP doesn't care much about product placement unless the guests can see it. Hidden things don't matter. Cedar Point is still Pepsi.

They run from the beginning of the brake run to the transfer track and a cable runs inside it. It's used by maintenance to winch the trains backwards off the transfer and into the station every morning before the ride opens. It's kind of a quirky and interesting process. Why they would be removed and laying out in the parking lot is beyond me. Maybe they came up with a new way to do it or maybe they just needed replaced.
I would not be surprised if they just took them off to clean them or just to check for hairline cracks. Basically, if anything can be taken apart, it gets taken apart (depending on how often certain things need to be maintained. There was one point where CP took a section off of WT's tower because it needed to be fixed up.)
