Not all at once, and maybe not some for 5 years. But come on, Wildcat...please!


If they take out Wildcat, they would most likely give it to Geauga Lake and market it as their next step to a "Family Friendly Park". I hope we arnt the park that gets all of the other parks crappy family reject rides.

What would be the point of taking Wildcat out? It was a pretty fun ride, it always has a long lines, and what could they fit in there anyway?

Wildcat dosen't fit in with the CP of coasters. When I was there this past summer, it looked so out of place and cheap.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Yeah, I don't understand why a great theme park like that owns a coaster that looks like it should be at a traveling fair. It's time to remove it, it kind of looks out of place. :?r

I always thought Corkscrew would be first to go, despite it's pretty corkscrews over the midways (with the fugly 70's supports looming there)

I agree about Wildcat looking out of place, but still, there are quite a few worse coasters than this (ride-wise) at Cedar Point.

Talking about the post below mine:

Hmm, maybe because there are a lot of similarities between CP and SFMM, and now with SFMM taking some coasters out, it's normal to talk about other similar parks doing something similar!?!?

Just a thought.

Plus, I don't think people really care THAT much about Psyclone and Flashback so it's natural for the thread to digress.

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

Meanwhile, down reality road...Cedar Point ISN'T removing any roller coasters anytime soon. So why are you guys debating which Cedar Point coaster should be taken out...especially in this thread?

It'll be interesting to see how Magic Mountain decides to take down Psyclone. It'd be nice if one of us members happened to be at the park when a giant steel wrecking ball just levels the entire thing within a few seconds --- and taped it all. LOL

For a traveling fair, sure! For Cedar Point, c'mon on!

it always has a long lines,

Because it's SH1T for capacity!

and what could they fit in there anyway?

A pretzel stand.

Or a trash can, they could use some more of those.
