The trims have been off ever since it rolled back. Mantis has really been hauling ass this year. Not quite as fast as in that video from 1996, but pretty damn close.

I don't know the difference between waist and waste.

The markings on the beach look incredibly temporary, so I'm guessing for the fireworks.

Actualy, the markings are not where the fireworks are being shot off. They shoot the fireworks off behind disaster transport.

Your right, I looked at the pic wrong. And I was hoping they would shoot the fireworks off 10 feet from the side of the beach walkway :lmao: .

As for Manis being underrated, it is. Unfortunately, it is also a ride that you really have to learn how to ride. Once you learn that skill, it's a great and painless ride.

Yeah the markings are directly outside of the beach entrance to the left of the stadium.

Someone in another forum thought they could be looking into constructing a AT&T cell phone tower.

^While that would make sense to bring in some extra money, why build another tower? They could just as easily put it on top of Space Spiral or Power Tower. A new metal tower on the beach would look really ugly.

I would be pretty disappointed if the new "thrill ride" is a cell tower.

^ Actually, I wouldn't mind as long as it doesn't have trim brakes.

Also, a little late, but here's the event calendar: http://www.cedarpoint.com/public/visit/schedule/events.cfm

Well after managing to delete what I was going to write, I will try this again...The orange markings are typical of telecommunications locating, such as fiber optics, telephone, cable, etc. I would highly doubt they would put in a cell tower for extra money, plus, it's an eye sore. If they were hard up for money, they could simply lease out the roof of the hotel. The rent my former building recieved for cell equipment mounted on our roof was only 200.00. A cell tower takes up around 25x25 feet and would imagine the rent would likewise be small. The only real reason for a tower is to increase capacity and that could be placed around breakers express and still have the desired effect, or lease out the roof of breakers, which in all reality, really isn't tall enough. Believe it or not, you won't get near as good a signal standing beside or underneath a tower as you do standing 1/4 mile away as the signal needs room to stretch. I took a look at some pictures from the BGT coaster project I had and sure enough, pink markings are everywhere they plan on doing digging work with orange marking surrounding those. I think we can all now probably agree that this is probably the general area they are looking at for their new project and are trying to get a good grasp on where all of their undergound utilities are so that they can either make a final determination for footers or move items if footers can't be built around the underground maze. Then again, they might just be due for new sewer and water lines.

I don't agree with the cell tower but that was a rumor I heard. We will see what happens the two random stakes are kinda weird, I was expecting more.

All I want is a chainlift!

The water tower already has cell antennas on it.

I spy with my little eye... a staircase.

Speculate away...


Sorry to bring up last year's speculation, but that staircase was used for the Wildcat: http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrewb94/4670868632/
