Will depend on the pump they use but I wouldn't expect it to take more than 10 mins.

Looking good! I have to say, this looks like a fine replacement for WWL, and I love the area they placed it in. Considering that WWL leaving the park led to the awesome Maverick, and this came in a mere 3 seasons later, I'd say it all worked out pretty well. That's also a rather impressive first drop for a "log flume" type of ride.
I would rather be off riding coasters!

^Certainly hasn't received the outrageous amount of obsession that Maverick did. Then again, there's no reason it should. I don't think they were going for a "big splash" ride in this case (pardon the pun).

Looks great...I do wonder though, how come the second drop is shorter then the first? I've wondered that from day one. I know that higher drop doesn't always mean bigger splash or anything, but to get the big drop out of the way first seems backwards from most Shoot the Rapid type rides...If I am wrong by all means say so, just an observation I made.

I don't know the difference between waist and waste.

^It almost looks like there wouldn't be enough space to put the larger hill second. Millennium Force blocks one end and the railroad and Frontier Trail block the other. It also could be because Cedar Point wanted STR to somewhat look like a roller coaster and all the coasters at CP have the biggest hill first :lmao:

Wow, this off-season put me so much out of things! STR looks great, and it will definitely stop all the "Dick Kinzel SUXX!!1" comments on the YouTube videos. Flume are kind of like the coaster's cousin too, and this will probably be good filler between the coasters that Cedar Point can't get fast enough. And I'll finally be able to ride a wet ride at CP without getting totally soaked.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I don't think they really have much of a choice considering it's all flat...

I can't wait to see this finished. It already looks really good and that's a pretty good sized hill for a flume!
