Thanks for the compliment! I’m always a big fan of showing some BuffaLove when I’m out and about! Just as I’m always showing my Cedar Point love when I’m at home! I’ll post some more chill out pictures soon, despite the slight rain, the park looked very nice and as always it was great go get a look at the maintenance shops to see where the coasters all go to be taken apart and put back together in the off season! =)

As for their new slogan "A place like no other" they showed us a new TV ad that they'll be launching regionally and it gave off a very Disney like vibe. They're really going for the resort and national appeal it seems. I'm sure you'll all see the ad soon.

would be nice if they put in a dark ride there, but if they want to stick with the boardwalk theming, I could absolutely see them moving some of the carnival type games over there, and then dropping in a flat (or maybe dark ride) across from MaxAir, where they pulled the games from.

A dark ride would be cool, but I would hope it would be placed somewhere away from the natural scenery of the beach. It might be a disaster... to the beach front atmosphere.

Maybe I missed it in the post, but are all of these changes (specifically the beach front bar) supposed to be completed by the time the park opens, or at least by May?

Steel Vengeance looks pretty awesome. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, but I wonder if it might have the I305 affect. Meaning it will be an incredible coaster, but maybe a little too much for some to ride more than once or twice a day. I remember I305 being incredibly fun, but it kicked my ass a little too much and prevented me from wanting to ride it too much. Same thing with Storm Chaser, or at least the back half.

Those are some fantastic shots of Steel Vengeance! I'm really looking forward to see some video of this thing in action, not to mention how jealous I am of everyone who will be riding this beast this year!

I was trying to find the link to the newest commercial referenced above and came across these gems...

You can see that they really touted the beach and Lake Erie back in the day.

And check out the shots of Oceana's old dolphin show!



I actually remember seeing this one!

Might be the only factor keeping the lines from being astronomical.

CP probably won't need a "no re-rides" rule to prevent people from getting too dizzy from riding over and over.

Wow, those photos are amazing--I'm surprised we're talking about anything else. :p Looks so intimidating...almost evil. But also beautifully classic with that wood structure and those curves.

^I thought the same thing. It looks really neat in a sinister kind of way.

Seriously? I didn't even know that was a real thing. Luckily, if people get too dizzy on Steel Vengeance they will have to wait in an hour line before they ride it again. (on slow days)
