Do you or does anyone know what program they used?


Also, yes, WT is the tallest and fastest impulse in the world and the only impulse with 2 twisted spikes.

Wicked Twister is taller and faster then all other Intamin Impulses. A Quick trip to RCDB could tell you that.


I wouldn't be surprised to see something like that happen down the line, but just to clear things up for anyone who may be wondering: Yes, some of the rides going into Planet Snoopy can already be found in Camp Snoopy (Crazy Sub = Camp Bus for example), but they aren't moving anything within the park. All 7 rides came over from Geauga Lake.

^Don't know. Tried putting in some availability searches with no luck other than Castaway Bay, for obvious reasons.

EDIT: Aah, my posts are FINALLY in the 21st century.

Windows Live Maps. It's like Google Earth, except it doesn't suck. :)

And V2 also has a second twist, on a 45 degree angle.

Not sure, but I wish they'd upgrade their reservations website.

CP has a fairly good looking website, and then all of a sudden you end up in a reservation site that looks like a poorly designed website from 1995.

I normally get an error screen or it trying to download a .dll file

Does anyone know if these hotels normally book up fully? And what would be my chances if I just turned up and said do any of them have a room for a couple of days.

Just saw a small article in the Buffalo News today that talks about the new kids area at CP and the new attractions at Holiday World. They confirm that all seven of the rides will indeed be coming from Geauga Lake, including the miniature train and the "mini-tea-cup-style ride." No mention of the kiddie roller coaster though...

Of note, they do mention that Cedar Fair shut GL down citing "low attendance" as the reason.

CP is also getting Skyscraper from Valleyfair! that will replace the X-treme Trampolines in Challenge Park.
