icon_STOPPark News - (9/7/17) A local news station has confirmed the Cedar Creek Mystic Mine Ride story, adding that it will indeed be an enhancement made to the park’s classic mine train for HalloWeekends starting on Friday, Sept. 15th. They will only say that a ‘part’ of the coaster will be themed, and drop the #whatsintheshed hashtag once again, much like what we saw happen at Kings Island when they announced the new Mystic Timbers coaster last year.
    (8/28/17) I'm not quite sure what this is about, but according to a report posted to Coaster Addict a rather odd description of the Cedar Creek Mine Ride was found posted on the mobile version of the park's website the other day before suddenly vanishing. The ride's name was changed to "Cedar Creek Mystic Mine Ride" along with the description, "Cedar Creek Mine Ride becomes Cedar Creek Mystic Mine Ride with special surprises in #whatsintheshed".
    Of course the last time we saw that particular hashtag used was for the long tease about Mystic Timbers at Kings Island, which ends with a surprise trip into a shed.
    So the question remains, will Cedar Point add a surprise Shed effects room to the end of their mine train coaster sometime in the not too distant future?  Could be... I guess we'll have to wait and see, though it is possible that this could be some kind of temporary set-up for HalloWeekends.
    While we’re talking about The Point, be sure to check out the Steel Vengeance update below as well.
    (8/8/17) According to this local news report Cedar Point will close three HalloWeekends haunts in order to bring three new attractions to life this season. The three haunts that are being retired are: Eden Musee, Eternity Infirmary and Fear-y Tales. Here's the rundown of what's new:
    Deprivation: No Way Out - Taking over Eden Musee is this haunt that is describeded as if it will be a trip through complete darkness, with you trapped inside trying to find the way out.
    Fearground Freakshow - Replacing Eternity Infirmary - A Freakshow like no other, brought to you by Professor Von Fleece.
    Harvest Fear - An outdoor haunt that will celebrate the annual harvest rituals of the local townsfolks. Yeah... that can't be good.
    Returning haunts will include: G.A. Boeckling's Eerie Estate, Hexed, Slaughter House and Zombie High School as well as the returning live performance of Midnight Syndicate Live.

 

icon_STOP2018 - Steel Vengeance - Confirmed - (9/20/17) WildGravityTravels has posted a new update from Cedar Point showing off a little visit with the new Steel Vengeance coaster... both up close and after dark. Check it out.
    (8/28/17) Some fun new pictures of Steel Vengeance under construction taken during a hard hat tour have been posted to Wild Gravity Travels from this weekend.
    (8/17/17) Cedar Point unveiled the true form of their masterpiece creation yesterday afternoon under the name Steel Vengeance, and it is a site to behold, as the world's first Hyper Hybrid coaster. According to the story trailer posted on the website the three outlaws we've seen on the wanted posters were really outcasts that joined together to defeat the evil deads of Maverick by creating Steel Vengeance.
    This is one BIG coaster, standing 205 feet tall and with a 200 foot tall vertical first drop you'll blast at 74mph through 4 inversions along 5,740 feet of track... so yes... this version is even longer than it was when it was Mean Streak. Steel Vengeance will claim a number of records according to Cedar Point, though most of these would fall into the relatively new "hybrid" coaster record books:
1) World's tallest hybrid coaster at 205 ft
2) World's fastest hybrid coaster at 74mph
3) World's steepest drop on a hybrid coaster at 90
4) World's longest drop on a hybrid at 200 feet
5) World's longest hybrid at 5,740 feet
6) Most Inversions on a hybrid - 4
7) Fastest Airtime Hill on a hybrid - 73mph
8) Most Airtime on a hybrid - 27.2 seconds
9) Most airtime on ANY roller coaster - 27.2 seconds
10) World's first Hyper-Hybrid roller coaster
    Cedar Point is also claiming a few records for the park with this addition as well including most steel coaster track in a single park (57,865 ft), Most coaster track at one park (60,423 ft), Most Rides at one park (71), Most Coasters Over 200 feet at one park (6), Most Coasters with a first drop of 90 or more in one park (5).
    That's enough stats through, I know what you really want is to see this sucker in action and the videos (POV and Off-Ride) don't disapoint, so check them out below! Also take notice of the brand new RMC train design as well that will start in 2017.


 

 

2018 - Hotel Breakers Expansion - (8/25/16) Cedar Point has announced plans to begin construction on an expansion to the Hotel Breakers, adding another 158 rooms to the resort. Construction will begin in September on a new six-story tower West of the main hotel, but the expansion wont be finished until 2018.
    (6/3/16) According to the local news Cedar Point submited plans to the local government for a 69-room expansion to their Breakers Express hotel which was approved. The plan is to turn the "U" shaped hotel into an "O" shaped hotel by filling in the opening at the far end. They say that was actually the original plan for the hotel in the first place years ago.

 

2020 - New Major Attraction - Speculation - (8/30/16) So when is Cedar Point planning to add their next coaster?  It’s a bit far out to know for sure, but 2020 seems to be a very likely date, as the park will be celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Cedar Point that year.
