Cedar Point is an Amusement Park, not a theme park, but adding a ride like this, in my opinion is a great idea. Cedar Point is going to make a lot more money if they mix coasters and family attractions in one park. The park is gradually becoming more family oriented and that is a very good business decision.
Families stay at hotels and resorts at the park and spend money on souvenirs and such for children. A coaster will come, for all you geniuses complaining that there's not a new coaster every year. Cedar Point doesn't have $15-25 million in their pockets to spend on coasters every year.
In fact, 3 of the 4 most recent coasters costed $25 million (Millennium Force, Top Thrill Dragster, and MAverick).
Yes, it is sad to see P.E. removed but, you can't keep everything. Eventually, a lot more "gems" will have to go.
I love this addition to the park in 2012!
