What explicit evidence is there stating that there won't be a coaster in 2020? I'm playing devil's advocate here - it doesn't seem like there is any activity anywhere on site and I don't believe a coaster is in the works, but that doesn't mean they couldn't build a small family coaster with ground prep starting in September or October. Unless we get a statement from a park official or some other evidence that says "we're not building a coaster," we can't call it confirmed.I think its safe to say that a major new coaster for 2020 is a confirmed no?
The park is still talking about bringing back retro food items. Might want to lower that bar a bit further.IMO the bar we should set in order to no be disappointed is, at most (and still very unlikely), a raptor. Personally I'm leaning more towards a family coaster or even no coaster at all, but still I'm sure Cedar Point will address what we all so anxiously wait to hear come the end of summer. And even if there is no huge ride to celebrate CP's 150th anniversary, the park has already added more than enough in the past few years, so there's that.
I am most excited for the "river expedition" as this could be a return of Paddlewheel Excursions, who's station now sits idle as Dinosaurs Alive! was removed end of last year (used the station for merchandise and access across the river to Adventure Island). While there is a floating bridge in place for guests to get across to Forbidden Frontier, the park is also using the old Shoot the Rapids raised access bridge as well; it would be in the realm of possible to create a river crossing while allowing ship passage underneath. All sheer speculation, but would love to see a "classic" ride return.
- A new nighttime celebration will take place along the Main Midway
- New (and throwback) food items are coming to tempt your taste buds
- Nostalgic merchandise and souvenirs will give a nod to the park’s historic past
- A reimagined Town Hall, complete with a more detailed look at Cedar Point history, will be waiting for you
- A river expedition for the entire family is set to launch into our waters
- Introduction of $99 Gold Pass with park entry and parking included
Yh completely agree with thatI'm going to guess that they're pointing towards some sort of coaster; a lot of people are talking about Cedar Point getting a coaster in 2021. Whatever they have in store, I think it'll be very exciting; Cedar Point's coaster installations never disappoint!
I'm not sure how much land that these markers occupy or outline; I'd be very interested in knowing this, though, in case it does end up being the site of Cedar Point's 2021 project.
Apparently the markings span a pretty large area, so it could be something big!Cedar Point enthusiasts have predicted 47 of the last 5 roller coasters that have been built.
It's markings for utility lines - nothing more, nothing less. They mark this for everything that involves cutting concrete - laying new paths, building new restaurants, rides, etc.
Just don't hold your breathe for that 500 ft. coaster just yet.
