    Nah getting RMC to build a family coaster would be like getting Gordon Ramsay to make a bowl of cereal.

    Well Dinosaurs Alive is being removed...

    Sounds intriguing but not quite sure what it actually will be? Some kind of walkthrough experience? An interactive dark ride of some sort?

    See.. I never get this.. people bitch about passionate people who care about their hobby giving a :emoji_poop: about something like this. Where is the cringy things enthusiasts say thread?


    I will say this was underwhelming and knowing Cedar Point.. it will be as such.

    I just want to know exactly how this was underwhelming? There was no teaser campaign, just a tweet the night before the announcement. Besides, it's the year after they built Steel :emoji_zipper_mouth:in' Vengeance and it's been hinted at that 2020 will bring something major.

    Seems like one of those Escape Room type things... but in a park setting.

    Yeah, this sounds like a multi-room escape experience. Although, this sounds like it's outside and quite theatrical? This could be pretty great.

    Yeah I'm really intrigued as to what this will be, if it is a large escape room-type thing that is quite exciting.

    How is it underwhelming? This is Cedar Point, that's how. I don't know if you've been to the park but they don't exactly do this "theming" thing, even on those $25 million dollar mega machines. Seeing this teaser and how it was thrown out, I'm willing to bet it will be pay to play, and it will be as cheap and crappy as Dinosaurs Alive, even if the concept is good such as an Escape Room as mentioned above.

    Cedar Point has been notorious for grandiose claims of something awesome when it comes to anything non-coaster and consistently coming up short time and again since.. well.. I was a kid. I'd be glad to be proven wrong but high hopes almost always come crashing down.

    It's Ghost Town Alive at CP. Nothing more nothing less.

    The optimist in me considers this a rather cheap attraction that can fill space for a while, not a long-term feature of Cedar Point's lineup. The land can be used for something more spectacular in the future, but that's probably not in the budget just yet. In the meantime, the land can be filled by something that can be built cheaply and removed cheaply. Don't despair, it probably won't be around forever.

    Completely this. There's a lot of land on that island with a ton of potential for future development. This project could allow them to kick off something more profound.

    Plus I've heard good things about Ghost Town Alive.

    Really? I had no idea that they were using spare parts from Geauga Lake. Makes sense, but still, it's sad.

    What about Cedar Creek Mine Ride? I honestly see that going before Gemini. CCMR is just old and takes up quite a bit of land.

    And as some of us expected, there's already work taking place:



    Now before anybody states that they could be using the machinery for removing the dino animatronics...it looks like these machines are in the old Shoot the Rapids area.

    They already threw a few of those moonshine jugs in the Steel Vengeance queue - the rest can go. :p
