I love how I see so many "We need more of these in the US!" comments about the newer European dive machines, but as soon as an IDEA for one at Cedar Point pops up, people immediately start complaining about it!

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

Having an entry plaza similar to what Carowinds is doing with Fury 325 would be great. Image
It would also give Cedar Point two great looking entrances along with Gatekeeper.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Raptor is perfect. You don't mess with that level of perfection.

How about the Dive Coaster dive under the water. It would truly be a "dive" coaster.

This was updated today.
My two thoughts "The ride is a proposal, one of many Cedar Point is working on for the 2016 season" They are not going to have a proposal for a ride coming in 2016 the ride in 2016 is Done and having its finale touches worked on. Rides start 3 to 5 years before they open.
2nd the layout they are talking about would have to be way more then 15 million.

The height of the lift in the proposal is about 223 feet above ground level. The length of the track of about 3,625 feet, according to the memo. The proposed Dive Coaster has a maximum speed of about 80 mph with a ride lasting about 195 seconds, including 30 seconds for loading and unloading of passengers. At that rate 1,310 guests per hour could ride the coaster.


The proposed Dive Coaster has three 24-passenger trains. Each train has eight people seated in a row, with each person restrained by a shoulder harness.

B&M is designing into the ride, a vertical drop in a tunnel, an Immelmann, a 270-degree roll, a banked curve, a "looping," an Immelmann with a half-roll exit, a second drop, a camel back and a spiral with a total of four inversions, according to the memo.


Wow, that's an awful lot of specific information. I really didn't expect to see that much detail even if it is just a proposal as the park is claiming. Small paper or not, newspapers do need to have some journalistic integrity so they must feel very confident in this to release such specific information.

including 30 seconds for loading and unloading of passengers


Okay you have great ride ops but who do you think you are, Knoebels?

^Thats where GateKeeper and Magnum are at for the most part. 35-45 seconds of load and unload time at proper interval. More than 30 seconds, yes, but GateKeeeper has 32 passengers and Magnum has 36, compared to the 24 passengers mentioned in the article. Yes, it's possible. Yes, it happens. Yes, I've worked GateKeeper when we achieved such times.
