Cosidering the rave reviews these S&S swings keep getting I am also excited to ride this. I'm also curious to see what's going on where WWL once stood when the season begins in May.

Weather's fine. They're securing the axel to the top piece right now.

This whole thing is turning out to be a theatrical mockery

Speaking of Skyhawk, we’ve just received word that the topping of Skyhawk has been moved to Thursday afternoon. Right now, we’re looking at about 12:00 p.m., but as you know, things could change.

Good to the last drop

I can't say I've been on the larger version, but I have been on Dorney's Screamin' Swing and it was outstanding. This will be a great addition to the park. I'm glad to see CP drop some giant flat rides before moving on to the next big coaster project.

Well, I rode the one at Wild Adventures and absolutely loved it! It was like being on a swing set that went REALLY HIGH! I loved how smooth it was, too.

Looking forward to swingin' in '06!

This was posted on Cedar Point's webpage today. Looks like they've moved the railroad tracks over and kept Whitewater Landing's station standing.

Mod Edit: Plase don't edit out the Description text.
