After a few hours of deep reflection I am a little disappointed by the lack of singing Mushrooms. This is a MAJOR anniversary year celebration here, guys. I mean... come on.

I'm sure these are in the plans for the 175th anniversary!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

How cool! I had no idea they used to have a paddleboat. But then I never visited until after it was removed. Sounds like great fun!

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer
https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/08/cedar-points-150th-anniversary-in-2020-features-new-river-ride-nighttime-midway-celebration.html

“In general terms, it will travel in the same waters as the former Paddlewheel Excursions, but will be a completely new experience,” said Cedar Point spokesman Tony Clark.


Still no concrete details, but a little more info pointing to a return of Paddlewheel like ride!

Good times. Good times.

So what were Paddlewheels like in ..... 1870? I like the idea of really "going back in time" to what "thrills" existed when the park began. In this case....a Paddlewheeler! :smile:

I think that a revamped paddlewheel excursion would be great!

I typically visit theme parks with the older generation, so having attractions that cater to families and the older crowd (while still having the thrills) is a huge win in my book.

And revamping the museum is an awesome idea!

While I like the museum that they have, it left me craving for more CP history and not clothing, silverware and other "filler".

It felt like half theme park museum and half Antiques Roadshow. LOL

Honestly beyond happy with a new rendition of Paddlewheel Excursions. Anything else (ESPECIALLY Merchandise :) :) ) is icing on the cake.

^ They've actually had the retro merchandise for a few years now, so hopefully they will offer an even bigger selection.

Of course I'll also be interested to know what new "retro" food selections that they'll offer!
