The Boardwalk - New for 2023

Not sure if this was posted before - during Winter Chill Out CP revealed some of the menu items at the Pavilion. I might go there every weekend just to eat!

Pavilion's not listed on the websites dining page yet. Chick fil a, Mac shack, Roost, Dive in, and Turnip are gone. Lakeside express is still there, funny even the picture shows it shuttered.

Still hopefully waiting for info on what's getting a replacement.

I wonder if they will get some artifacts from Town Hall into the new Grand Pavilion.

This makes a lot of sense. Displaying the park's history in paces where people can actually see and appreciate it would be nice.

Because let's face it, Town Hall never got the kind of foot traffic the park's rich history deserves. Which I guess was part of it's charm, but displaying these artifacts throughout the park achieves the goal of communicating that history without the cost of "operating" Town Hall.

But I'd rather it stay.


I'm excited to see the new food options, especially since they're likely to be on the dining plan. Hopefully the area can handle the 'new coaster' crowds.

I see a lot of action this morning - albeit difficult to see clear due to the sun angle on the lake into the camera.

Multiple cement trucks, looks like a layout going on the atomic scrambler pad. Exciting times!

Ahhhhh C.P. My Happy Place!

The center of Matterhorn looks to be in place and wooden spokes that makes the base underneath the ride are going in place. Build up for portable rides like these can be accomplished in less than a day.
It seems that concrete was poured just the other day, so it’s quick progress.

She is definitely waking up! kids rides have shed their winter skin. I was watchin Linus beetle bugs getting put in place last week, or the week before... getting older means loosing track of days - not just time!

Ahhhhh C.P. My Happy Place!

I see two beetle bugs on the new coaster track. How many will there be and where are they now?

There are 7 cars - one "cheese" car and 6 "mice" cars. I'm not sure where the others are, but Zaggy and Larry are on the storage track:

I'm a little surprised we haven't seen any car movement, considering Zamperla was on site starting last week. I know these are complex machines, but I would have expected at least Zaggy to have made it onto the circuit.


Matterhorn has its track now. I always find it interesting to see rides in their skeletal form during build up. When boarding the ride it’s hard to realize how high off the ground the track is, but once you account for the hills and the suspended cars it adds up. It appears that the ride might sit slightly higher than before. There’s a little cement ramp at the exit in the front. I think in its previous spot the ride’s exit was right at ground level.

There was a ramp in the old location as well, but it appears it's in a different orientation than the new ramp.

And now Scrambler’s (er… Atomic Scrambler) is there painted in a nice, bright orange. It’s not centered or in place yet.
Remember when it was popular for parks, small or large, to take their aging Scrambler and enclose it with a light show and music? Some of the larger parks, Over Georgia and Busch Williamsburg come to mind, used proper buildings while smaller ones used a dome to cover the ride. While not very exciting visually, it might’ve made a good attraction at this Boardwalk. I think it was a way to boost ridership as people always lined up for them.

I’m going to check the book, but this Scrambler may be CP’s oldest currently operating, non-carousel adult flat. It’s only had two other locations at the park (it’s a ground-mount) but it’s endurance is admirable.
Eli Bridge has produced hundreds of rides since it was first introduced in 1955 and they are work horses. Coasterpedia has an incomplete list but it seems Denver’s Lakeside has the oldest dated 1958, Silvan Beach is next at ‘59, then Cedar Point and Lake Winnie are tied with their rides debuting in 1960. So that’s a long time for our old gal and I’m glad she’s still around.

Not enclosed, but I like the setup at Kings Dominion. At least I did (haven't been back since they re-themed that area of the park).

Funny. I always used to put a building around the scrambler when playing RCT2 to make it more exciting.

Geez. When it's windy I can't stare at those webcams too long without feeling a little vertigo-ish.

Tony tweeted pic of a mouse a few minutes ago. Not sure if that means they are/have started testing.

She is running great! I can already tell that this is going to be a fun ride!

argues just for clicks

It’s nice that a single car is completing the circuit, but the “running great” part will surely have to include successful operation of a continuous loading station.
As for the run we’ll see how weight in the cars affects the spin. The brake along the back seems to not trim the speed very much so far (if at all) which is a good thing. I’m looking forward to trying it.
Now let’s put the camera back to the Boardwalk, please, lol.
