Item #3 sounds like they are losing faith enough in Xtreme Starflyer to downsize it some.....but then item #2 makes it sound like it's going to be around a long time. Sigh.....RollyCoaster said:2. Both Americana and Xtreme Skyflyer have gotten fresh coats of paint.
3. There are 3 new Coca Cola refresh stations. Remember that place you would buy tickets to ride Xtreme Skyflyer? That building was torn down and is now both a refill station and the new ticket kiosk. Another refill station is going in Safari Village, just by Hungry Hippo. I'm not completely sure where the 3rd is going at this time.
Only thing I can think is they had theft issues and this is just the start.Zachary said:I understand the locker change on Volcano because capacity is abysmal and lines are always eternal. Anything to cut down on load and unload times is worth it.
That said, i305 does not have that problem. Lines typically remain rather short and capacity is pretty great.
The most offensive change though is certainly Flight of Fear. Flight of Fear, like Ricochet, has a bin setup that has ABSOLUTELY ZERO impact on load and unload times. Hence, there is ZERO justification to impose what is essentially an admission price for the coaster.
Very disappointing money-grab by the park.
Cedar Point Website said:...Valravn, Rougarou, GateKeeper, Magnum XL-200, Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster: Loose articles of any kind including purses, backpacks, beverage containers, etc., may not be taken past the entrance, or in line and may not be left on the ride platform. Cell phones or other small items must be secured in cargo pockets or waist packs. All loose items not able to be stored in cargo pockets or waist packs must be left in a locker or with a non-rider prior to entering the line...
Where are you getting this info? From whom?RollyCoaster said:Alright. There isn't a transferable option as of yet. When you pay for one locker, you have to stay with that locker. If you want to change lockers, you will have to remove your items in locker A, then pay an additional 2$ and place your items in locker B. The same 1$ every hour after applies.
There was a problem with crowding at Flight Of Fear. You had your fast lane, disabled guests, and people that needed to retrieve their items all going through Flight Of Fears exit (Fast Lane entrance). Being able to just walk up and take something, and several other conflicts that took place ultimately resulted in lockers.
The I305 lockers are due mainly from the many items falling from guests pockets. I've firsthand been hit in the forehead by a nickel going around the first turn.. Not something you want to experience. More people drop cell phones on I305 than any other ride in the park, and the procedure to retrieve those lost items took away from the operation.
Edit: As of right now, Twisted Timbers is scheduled to be open for Winterfest!
