Damn, not the first time I've seen a lack of humor around here. My bad?

The Gemini Midway and Camp Snoopy Area will be receiving a large renovation for 2014, including the addition of two new rides.

The new rides that will join the midway will be called Pipe Scream, a Disk'O Coaster, and Lake Erie Eagles - a classic Flying Scooter ride. Both rides are designed for family thrills, and can be found at numerous parks throughout the U.S.

In adition to these Gemini Midway improvements, the Frog Hopper kiddie ride will be relocated inside Camp Snoopy and re-themed as Woodstock's Airmail. The Jr. Gemini will also be renamed Wilderness Run, and have its entrance moved into Camp Snoopy.

“We are excited about these new additions to the park,” said Jason McClure, incoming Vice President and General Manager of Cedar Point. “Following the successful introduction of GateKeeper, we believe these new rides and upgrades will continue to make Cedar Point the perfect vacation destination for families of all ages.”

The beginning of a two-year Hotel Breakers renovation project will also commence this winter. Phase one will include upgrading a portion of the exterior of Hotel Breakers, while phase two will take place over the 2014-2015 winter season and will feature upgrades to both the exterior and interior of the hotel. This is a welcomed renovation after some much needed TLC for the 108 year old hotel.

As boring as I think it is, sounds like a good move!

As long as those scooters are snappable, it's a good move.

Even with this new "cred" the Point stays 1 behind Magic Mountain. :)

If they are anything like Kings Dominion, then yes, they are very snappy.

I really like that more in the area is being absorbed into Camp Snoopy, with Jr Gemini and the Frog Hopper being renamed. A "lets not half-ass this" mentality, and I really commend that. The pic of the flyer in front of Gemini looks marvelous as well.

Also, lets take note that Cedar Point is referring to the new Disk'O as just a RIDE, for those who are still considering them roller coasters.

^ No, and anyone who says otherwise deserves to be shot in the face in front of their family.
