I agree that the ride op's (and night rides on just about anything) are a big part of what makes Cedar Point so awesome!!!!

Hmmm.

Maybe by next year's Coastermania!, there will be ____________________ in Mean Streak's place, perhaps that soon?

#hereshoping :)

Awesome report on Cedar Point, Robb! I really really REALLY want to get over there, next year or a bit later on.

As a former Mantis ride op, I'm still sad to see my baby turned into a floorless, but I totally get why they did it and Rougarou was running incredibly smooth the last time I rode it. CP is really looking nice after the past few seasons of upgrades.

I've gone pantless!

Looks like a great time on the lake! How does Valravn compare to other Dive Machines?

Great review! Did you happen to notice if the Rougarou ice cream is still available in the park, or has it been replaced by the new Valravn flavor?

To be honest I feel the Dive Machines all feel very similar, but that's not a bad thing because I really like this style of ride so that means Valravn gets a big thumbs up from me!
