I had a mini heart attack when I saw the Millennium Force restraints, then quickly realized it was fake. They got me!

Thanks for sharing the photos! Can't wait for more.

Yea...
Back in the day they used to have big bands play up there. It's really not used for much these days besides makeup and costumes for halloweekends.

^They also use it for employee training during the regular season. All the orientation and safety courses are taught up there.

Great pictures! That midway really changed with Valravn dominating the skyline. It easily takes away attention from Raptor.

Are Millennium Force cars kept outside exposed to the elements during the offseason? If so, why do they do that, why not keep it on the tracks under the station in that case?

They are actually in the maintenance shop for most of the off season until the yearly maintenance is done on them. After, they are usually returned to there respective coaster. There are still a few millennium force trains in the maintenance shop today being worked on.

The Millennium force trains are mainly fiberglass, so they can handle weather.

I know this is a long shot, but I may have picked up some clues on the park possibly doing a Christmas event sometime in the future. Here are a few of the hints.

Thoughts?

Christmas outfits in the wardrobe dept.

Christmas decorations in storage but easily seen.

Last, but not least is hints around the 2017 plans book. Red, green and white objects (the 3 main Christmas colors ), also, two hands with what appears to be snowballs.

I don't know if Cedar Point can successfully put on a Christmas event due to its location. We were blessed to have a warmer than usual December last year but we all know that kind of weather isn't guaranteed every year. It would be brutal walking down the midway with those bone chilling winds off the lake. Between the two Ohio parks Kings Island is better suited for such an event as it has already been proven from when they used to have Winterfest and I wouldn't mind the four hour drive to experience theirs.
