Am I the only "CP fanboy" not getting entirely pissed about this? It's a new ride! I'm happy! Heck, I'd be happy if they kept the park as it was; frankly, I've loved nearly anything CP has added in recent years (Disaster Transport? What are you talking about? ;))

Everyone keeps telling me that it's a totally different ride experience than Maxair. So... why are nearly everyone on CP sites b*tching about it?!

Thank you for doing this, CP :)

S&S Screamin Swings are fun rides; the pneumatics give it a much different feel than motor driven swing rides. Comfortable restraints. Would love to trade a pile of kiddie flats they keep adding at SFGADV for one of these (or just give us the Huss Frisbee back)

Because they are 12 year old kids with nothing better to do.

The sad thing is, so many people complain, but it's absolutely the right move. Prior to last season, Cedar Point had only one major thrilling non-coaster ride, Power Tower. Power Tower is a lesser drop tower, it's not nearly as thrilling as many.

Cedar Point's glaring hole was the lack of really thrilling non-coasters, and two in two years is definitely a step in the right direction.

This whole thing is turning out to be a theatrical mockery

Agreed, I love these flat rides. Honestly they give me more of a thrill than 75 percent of all coasters that are out there. Give me good variety of rides and i'm a happy camper. :D

I'm starting to believe that... quote Wally, "Some boards these days are being run like a communist government".

Wow, I am shocked :shock:. Really, it isn't very suprising, because every other Cedar Fair park either has one or is getting one this year.

I Love Donkeys!

Meh, as long as it takes some of the lines away from MaxAir. You had to wait way to long for that ride. Over an hour at times.

I would rather ride White Water Landing than Skyhawk.

Cedar Fair parks are starting to look like Six Flags, for example:

Dorny has Talon
CP has Raptor
Knotts has Silver Bullet
WOF is getting Patriot

CP has Mean Streak
Knotts has Ghost Rider
WOF has Villan

etc.
