has anybody noticed this, wicked twister is over 200 feet tall, and wind seeker rises quite high above it

id say that you're placing a star flyer maybe 300 feet in the air with pilgrims plunge rated harnesses, and anyway the poles will be more sturdy than the chains and are probably needed for that hight

look at how you tower over the wicked twister

I love how all the Cedar point fanboys on Youtube were saying, 'ZOMG, WINDSEEKER IS A 300 FEET ROLLER COASTER?!!'.


And after everyone discovered it was a StarFlyer, everyone said, "This sucks.", or "I'm not buying Season Passes for 2011..", and my favorite comment, "Another epic fail by Cedar point..."


Honestly, I could care less that it isn't a coaster this year. Maverick was more than enough to quench my thirst for a new coaster at Cedar point, so I'm good until 2012-2013 without a coaster!


Honestly, when I heard about Windseeker, it sound terrifying! With only a seat holding you 300 feet in the air, nobody can say they wouldn't be scared! :wtf:

Not sure if it has been discussed yet or not, but randomly today I was thinking about my trip in early August to Cedar Point and noticed a few coasters missing their third trains. Mantis' was obviously sitting underneath the breaks as always, however Mean Streak (gold train) and Corkscrew (i think white train) were no where to be seen. Has it been like this for a while?

^Mean Streak hasn't been running its third train all season. Which, as a result, has actually given the ride a line :lmao: ! I'm not sure about Corkscrew, though. But then again, there aren't many days that would warrant a third train for that ride (it would just lead to massive stacking on the block brake, anyway).

Last week Corkscrew was running red and blue with white idle.

Mean Streak was running red and gold with no other train in sight.

No line for either of them.

Corkscrew has been running all three trains on really busy days (which I hate, too much stacking) and running two trains on most days (swapping which trains are running). Mean Streak's green train is sitting behind the queue with all the other spare ride parts.

^^ Green hasn't been running at all this season. I think I saw it on the transfer tracks when it was closed, but it's basically been red and gold all season.

So what do you guys think the lines will be like for Windseeker mid-next year? I'm hoping for it to be like a second Power Tower, but I'll guess 30 minutes.

Top Thrill Dragster's orange train's shell is sitting in the Mean Streak in field area aswell. Did anyone notice Mean Streak also recently got some re-tracking on one of the turns near the lift? Its like a 50ft long stretch of brand new light wood.

^I noticed that too. That also happened to be one of the only smooth parts before the re-tracking. Leave it to Cedar Fair to re-track a smooth section :x .

It was sitting on top of the transfer track for about a week back in early June, probably while they were debating whether or not to put it back on the track for operation (obviously they didn't).
