I also think it's a good idea, but I just don't like how it's a mine ride with different themed trains.. :p

Good idea to change trains...just looks kinda bad because of the theming.

CoasterMania is my new goal this year since I'm unable to attend WCB like I wanted. Having never looked into this event I've got a newb question. If I join Club TPR is the event completely free or is there a one day admission needed as well? I couldn't find a clear answer in the release.
Total:99, steel:73 wood:26 According to Coaster Counter
Top 5 Steel: Magnum XL-200; X2; Maverick; Alpengeist; Tatsu
Top 5 Wood: Apocalypse; Beast; Mean Streak; Blue Streak; Shivering Timbers

It's in the first paragraph. You need to buy a ticket.

Members of qualifying coaster clubs can purchase a ticket that includes, EXCLUSIVE ride time, behind the scenes tours, complimentary lunch and admission to Cedar Point on July 13, 2012! This event is FREE for Cedar Point Platinum and Season Passholders!
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

When did Cedar Point care about theming? This will be great for the park and really add capacity.

Well the trains will definitely look out of place IMO.

Considering the park doesn't open for 3+ more months, there is plenty of time to simply paint those trains a brown/rust color to go with the theme if they end up using them...

^ That is true...if they even decide to use them. Just because they had one train on there to test it out doesn't automatically mean that they are going to use them instead of the actual trains.
