Info on Coastermania 2010 is up. New this year is "behind the scenes" tours of Maverick and MF on Sat. morning, and 2 hours of ERT on MF, which will be nice. Hopefully will be a warm morning as ERT on Shoot the Rapids is also scheduled for Sat. morning, and for some odd reason, ERT on Mantis on Friday night.

Hopefully Big Mike can make it in 2010!

As if you weren't smart enough to already have a good idea of what the boats look like, here they are! The video also has a construction update too.

Along with their last video they also posted some pics of the boats and have said that there will be no seatbelts. Right now it looks like they're just puring a lot of concrete.

Also, the final piece of steel from Demon Drop was removed from Cedar Point and is on its way to Dorney.

Last thing. They've been posting some great HD POV footage of their coasters over on their YouTube channel.

:wtf: It's so weird seeing that space with Demon Drop gone.

The boats look all right, not sure if I like the wood texture though. It just seems to resemble a viking theme or a Thanksgiving theme rather then a frontier one. Maybe it will look more in place once it's blended in with the aesthetics of the ride.

I think CP is planning something for Demon Drop's area. Why would you take out a ride and send it to another park? Does it not work well with the CP air? I know it was for sale but why not scrap it if you don't want it.

^Cedar Point is planning on building the largest Dippin Dots stand surrounded with a record breaking amount of trash cans :lmao:

It's better than the World's Largest Smoking Section were getting over here at Gadv. :?r

Wow...it just seems so strange to see that pic with the DD tower gone.

Although I didn't ride Demon Drop every year I was at CP, it will be etched in my mind forever as one of the very first thrill rides that I was absolutely terrified to ride during the opening year!

Even though a lot of people bash it and the fact that we all have had a good laugh over it's relocation, it truly is sad to see it leaving the CP skyline.


Some fun memories there...

There'll be aesthetics? Is that the same as theming? I thought CF didn't do theming...I know the joke is old, I'm just bored.

I like the look of the boats, and am pleased to hear there'll be no seatbelts...that's a first for CP...

^Maybe because it's an AMUSEMENT park chain, not a THEME park chain.
