Pros of dive machines:
-Vertical drops give a good hanging sensation in the front, as well as good pops of air in the back.
-Very visually pleasing and fun to watch, especially if splashdown elements are added
-It is different from everything else at Cedar Point
-Aside from their signature vertical drops, none of them really have impressive or rememberable layouts.
-Large track budgets would make it difficult even for a park like Cedar Point to afford a full length dive machine.
Assuming this happens, I think that it will be more well-received than Gatekeeper. While dive machines are not my favorite coaster type in the world, one of these would seem like a good fit for Cedar Point, as they have nothing else exactly like this. It will not likely become my favorite attraction at the park, as I will probably continue to stick to Maverick.
On another note, does anyone else like the back row on dive machines better than the front? While I may not be as affected by the holding brake as others, what I find to be more terrifying is getting that pop of air in the back row as it slopes down to vertical while being 200 feet up.
