From Adriel TjokrosaputroThat is insane!When will people forget the idea to build the fastest and tallest roller coaster in the world?Rocket Coasters are too dangerous and there are so many injured at those coasters.I can't believe t.It is the time for Cedar Point to build the record coaster and build some roller coaster with great special effects.

From Audrey HamlinWow. Demon Drop was the first thing I ever rode at CP, five years ago. It doesn't take up that much space, though, so how is that going to give enough room for a mega-coaster?

And how do you know this?
From ryan saundersMy dad's friend works for CP and he was telling my family all about it last night.

From Derek PotterDemon Drops sale has been covered locally and all over the internet...looks like they are finally going to shine up that part of the park. Next on the chopping block...Disaster Transport. Perhaps this is the beginning of the 1920's ragtime beachside park themed area that I've suggested they build for a long time. Then again, maybe that's where the next stomach churner will be built. I highly doubt that the Point is making room for a 500 footer though....dream on fanboys.

From Chase HarrisonIm SICK of the 500 foot rumors at CP its driving me nuts like I said at thepointol.com THEY NEED A FLYER AND A FLOORLESS FIRST THEY NEED LOOPS NOT MORE SPEED AND HEIGHT.

From Audrey HamlinYeah, I'd like to see something comparable to the Superman. Raptor is floorless though and has 6 loops. I agree they could use more loopers. I think that should be the next record--rather than height, have something with say, 10 loops. DD isn't exactly a thriller, but since I'm going back next week I'll have to ride it once more for old time's sake.

From ryan saundersIMO flyers and floorless coasters are quite boring and offer no thrills to me. I'm all about speed, quickness, and height - make it happen again CP!!!

From Chase HarrisonNO DONT CP

From ryan saunderslol Chase, you should have got on TTD, you better next time!

From Derek PotterCP would be morons to build a floorless. Geauga Lake has a world class floorless called Dominator. Why would CP waste money trying to one up it's own park by building a better or bigger one. Four words...Flyer or water coaster.

From Chase Harrisonna it dosen matter I think CP needs a floorless or something WITH LOOPS

From Joe TatumA flyer would be a nice addition!:( Bye DD :(

From Rick CI just got back from Cedar Point. Gosh, that ride is not bad at all. There is no line and it's fun. I prefer it to Power Tower in some ways because it really jars you more where Power Tower is so smooth. It doesn't take up much space at all. I would rather have them take down one of the old school roller coasters like Corkscrew. That would give them more room and when I was there for three days recently, it was empty all the time! Disaster transport should go too though. It's not bad if you don't have to wait in line but there is no need for it. I know some people are going to say that these rides are important for younger children who can not go on Millenium Force or Magnum, but I saw lots of kids at Cedar Point when I went recently, and if they were really young, they were in Camp Snoopy and if they were tall enough, they were on the same thrilling rides we all love. The Corkscrew adds nothing to the park. At least the woodies have character.

From Courtney SJust so you know, no one bought Demon Drop yet. It's staying there for now.

From Dave LillyIn my opinion, I would say Demon Drop is actually not going anywhere. Theres no proof this ride is going yet, and Cedar point is not going to build yet another Coaster for 06 or 07. They are focusing on small, flat thrill / family rides. In 08 you will probably see a new coaster, but don't be expecting anything that will beat out Kingda Ka. I expect a record like "Most Inversions" to be broken. But THERE IS NO 500FT COASTER COMING TO CEDAR POINT. (At least not for at least 7 years!)

From Audrey HamlinIf you take a look at the Cedar Point blog on their web site, there's a few details about the new ride they're working on. No coaster for '06, but I agree they're probably working up to a big one in '07 or '08.
Posted November 15, 2005 at 12:01 PM
In the meantime, there is a curious incident I'm aware of at a local factory...they're enhancing a ride that is almost identical to Demon Drop. I can't say too much, but it makes me wonder if it's the same one as at CP.
