After reading the entire article it seems that progress will be made. At what pace? Only time can tell.
Ouimet is bringing a much needed refresh to the Cedar Fair product offerings. I like the idea of the added Peanuts characters. The KBF Hotel does need an update badly and I'm glad to hear CF owned hotels will be receiving some TLC.
Knott's in particular badly needs a nighttime spectacular of some sort. Snoopy's Starlight Spectacular was "cute" but still fell short of "spectacular."

In regards to the new marketing, I'm all for it.

This one is kinda funny I'll admit.

The new posters look great... I saw them a few posts back but it's definitely worth a second look :)

Just noticed the "Thrills Connect" tagline on these. It really brings a whole new aspect to the park that has never been explored before.

Approximately how many people attend Coastermania each year?

I wonder why it's only one day this year? That's the way it used to be years ago. Glad too see we still get free food!! I figured that would change this year.

Just an extraordinary event especially since it's free with a season pass and tpr membership.

I'm thinking they decided to open more rides during each ert session so lines will be that much shorter, then they consolidated that into one day..

A fairly odd rumor was said by Screamscape...
Park News - (1/31/12) This is kind of an odd rumor, as many of the rumors surrounding Cedar Point always tend to be, but according to an e-mail sent in, The Point may opt to retire the Cedar Creek Mine Ride trains, and may attempt to put up to three of Gemini’s more comfortable trains to work here. As odd as it sounds at first, this may work as both coasters are based on Arrow’s mine train design specs.

True.. or not? :omg:
