There are some new pics from the Cedar Point Blog of the first steel pieces for Shoot the Rapids.

They are also pouring footers.

You can also check out the construction by watching the webcam or by going to the construction gallery.

Even though I'm not a fan of having Millennium Force running over the ride, I am still a fan of the rides location. Most of the log flumes I've come across are out in the park, and most look pretty ugly. Shoot the Rapids reminds me of the log flume at SFSTL where it is hidden in the forest, and it should add to the ride, especially with the ride's theme. Also, the new log flume track looks really good, certainly a lot better than that of the old Arrow log flumes.

I think they started construction so slow because of its location. During the haunt, one of the mazes (also the best one), went all over Millenium island and near the proposed site I think.

This was a comment from the Cedar Point Blog.

With the ride going on to Millennium Island, will that impact Terror Island either this season or next? Or will this Fright Zone be discontinued?
From Tony:

The ride will have little to no impact on Terror Island. It will likely not have an impact on Fright Zone either.

Cedar Point is my dream park. When I get old enough I'm definitely going here and I'll probably stop by Kings Island and Holiday World if i get the chance.

I haven't seen anything mentioned about this yet, and if it has, I'm sorry.

Anyway, I found this kind of interesting.

Tony & Tyler posted a new Blog on the CP website that said Demon Drop will now be going to Dorney Park and not Knott's Berry Farm as was originally planned.

Here's a link to the blog which also has a bit more info on other projects as well.

I find it interesting that they were originally planning on moving Demon Drop to Knotts but then changed their minds. I wonder what prompted them to make this change?
We also have an update on where it's going. We can confirm that it's not going to Knott's Berry Farm in California as originally stated.

After consideration of the aesthetics, geography and use of the land near the proposed ride area, it was decided that it will be better suited for our sister park, Dorney Park in Allentown, PA.

^ I believe it's because of the backlash the Knott's idea got. Plus, since park authorities do read these forums quite often as well. ;)

Maybe if we go up in arms just one more time, it'll get moved to Michigan's Adventure! ;)

It's a really loud ride. I'm sure they figured the neighbors wouldn't be happy with that, so that was probably the biggest factor.
