The Boardwalk - New for 2023

So you know how the gulls literally attack you if you have food on the midway? I had a piece of pizza almost

snatched from my hands near The Raptor. Do you think the gulls will be hanging out on the new building's

outside areas to attack guests? This could really be a problem, don't you think?

I'm thinking electrical supply for Wild Mouse, Matterhorn, the Atomic Scrambler, and the new food building behind there.

The Boardwalk area looks like a giant sandbox today.

I am puzzled by the gaping hole in the roof of the new restaurant that matches the black hole in the roof on the drawings.

I would guess that's where the building's mechanicals are located. Stuff like ventilation, climate control, etc. Normally commercial buildings have flat roofs (or flat sections of an otherwise sloped roof) where it's easy to plop down that stuff. Given that GP's sloped roof, they likely tucked that stuff in there to hide it from view from the ground.


Seems like that is a difficult place to clear snow from.

I'm not sure what you mean. If you mean manually clearing snow, that's not a thing unless you live somewhere that gets an excessive amount of accumulated snow through winter, and Sandusky isn't one of those places. If instead you're referring to snow melting and finding a path to ground, like basically any commercial/industrial building there are drains on the flat roof connected to drain pipes leading to exit at ground level or directly into storm drains.


I seem to have a memory from 1978 that says different.

Seeing as how a significant amount of people posting here weren't alive when your brain formed that memory, I think Brandon's point stands.

Yes, it is possible that there could be a massive, once- or twice-a-century snowstorm, but it would be economically impractical to build based on such an infrequent event. So I guess I should have said "...that's not a thing unless you live somewhere that regularly gets an excessive amount of accumulated snow through winter, and Sandusky isn't one of those places."


Im guessing that building will be around for quite a few deep snow storms.

It would survive just like any other Flat roofed building in the mid-west. the design is there for it (snowfall).

Ahhhhh C.P. My Happy Place!

Blizzard of '78 is one you remember if you were alive for it (and old enough to remember). Cedar Point has been through a lot of winters (including the one in 1978). Some worse than others. But no doubt they plan for them in terms of structures.

I doubt that anyone cleared snow from the Arcade, Games Plaza, Shops, Restaurants, or Offices, all of which have flat roofs or flat areas, in 1978.

This really seems like someone in search of a problem.

I just had this pessimistic thought about what will go into the old Scrambler and Matterhorn spots: a Zamperla Endeavour and a Tea Cup-style ride.

The reason I think that is because they did a similar copy of Kings Island with Lake Erie Eagles and Pipe Scream.

This assumes that the Dragster modifications don't interfere with the area.

I had another account called "Point of View" but lost it.
Fav CP coasters: Steel Vengeance, Millennium Force, Valravn, Maverick

Why do you say pessimistic? Any time new flats arrive it’s a good thing.
And take a look around the rest of the CF chain. Just about everyone has a Flying Scooter now and I can think of a couple more than KI with Disk-O coasters. I wouldn’t say CP would necessarily need to duplicate attractions simply because KI did. I also know that rides that prove reliable and popular are likely to be used at parks around the country. Someone should explain that concept to Six Flags.

CP posted a video of the new pavilion food options on tiktok, making me hungry. Wish they were able to show off more of these at wco.

"Artisan Plank Flatbread Pizza" doing a lot of heavy lifting for what appear to be cheese sticks.

That said, everything looks amazing.

Off topic, TikTok is just the worst mainstream app ever. I loathe that you cannot disable autoplay (unless I'm missing something), so I basically never open the app until I get a link, at which point I'm reminded just what an awful, user-hostile app it is, then close it immediately after watching one video. /rant

And now we finally know what that permit referenced in the TTD thread was filed for.

So much for your reverse spike ;)

If I can't get my perch, some walleye is a good second option. I like what I see.
