Having been to Cedar Point three or four times, I feel that a ride like this was a must for their lineup. This could just be me, but when I go there, I ride only the coasters, mainly because they have little to offer outside of that realm for thrill seekers. This is the only 'non-coaster' ride that is thrilling, and family-orientated at the same time. Also, it won't make me dizzy or sick! I'm extremely excited to see the finished project.

Just Kidding!

The ride is looking great!! Those two hills actually seem pretty big in the pictures. It'll definitely be a ride I wanna try when I go later this summer.

Untrue- Ceder Creek Mine Ride's biggest drop is about 1/2 way between the two lifts when it drops down towards the water- and this is not its first drop.

I was wondering what that bridge was for in the photos- then it dawned on me that it must be to evac the ride if necessary.
Of the road, but still in a truck...By the way, that's my dog Millie (named after Millennium Force) over there to the left!

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

actually yes, i completely forgot, these are the first photos ive seen of the ride and damn it looks fun! does anyone know what hill comes first? by the looks of the pictures, it looks like the bigger hill is first, then the small hill. i hope im wrong as i think it would be best to have the bigger hill after the small one but who knows

And I'll finally be able to ride a wet ride at CP without getting totally soaked.


If you watch the animation, looks like this ride will get you soaked completely.

Hopefully will be a warm morning at Coastermania.....

^Cedar Point confirmed that the wetness level could be adjusted. Hopefully they will keep the wetness down like what White Water Landing had.

Yes, the bigger hill comes before the smaller hill.

In regards to the splash, the boats are the same ones used on Pilgrims Plunge at Holiday World. When they announced it, Holiday World said that it was going to make the biggest splash ever and yet it doesn't. Does anybody think that Cedar Point may have the same problems in regards to the splash size?

^I think the reason they toned down the splash size is because of how bad the deceleration would have been hitting deeper water at that speed. You come down that drop pretty fast, so it wouldn't feel too good to be slammed into the lap bar. Either way, you still get plenty wet on PP. Water gets splashed up onto you during the drop, and then the final splashdown after the run out gets you soaked. So it's not the size of the splash that matters, just how they use it. ;)
