Cedar point winter tour 2016

Postby thrillrider » Sat Feb 20, 2016 3:32 pm

First off let me apologize for some of the pictures, as the sun was not cooperating.

A quick recap of today's presentation:

-Shoot the Rapids is officially confirmed to be removed and scrapped (will not be relocated)
-Go-Karts and Skyscraper are also being removed. Ripcord is staying, but it's unclear if it'll be relocated from its current spot.
-Chick-Fil-A is being replaced with Frontier Inn, serving chicken tenders, salads, etc.
-Hurricane Hannah's is being replaced with a Coca-Cola Station
-New pre-opening backstage tour of Valravn
-New Ride Warriors Club that "will provide exclusive experiences thought the season" Membership is $120 and is limited to 1000 members
-Coasting for Kids will not return at Cedar Fair parks. Instead, each park will find and support local charities. CP will be hosting a Give Kids the World "reunion" at the park.

Most of the new additions have already been mentioned, so lets just move on to what most of you came to see....the pictures!
