Cedar Point’s Wildcat Closing
Today Cedar Point announced that they are closing Wildcat, their Schwarzkopf portable coaster. The park claims that they will
be expanding the Celebration Plaza. Wildcat opened in 1979 and will be dismantled before the park opens this summer.
I’ve heard mixed reviews of the coaster. Some people say that it is a fun ride for a portable coaster. Others couldn’t care less if it is dismantled. Unfortunately I haven’t ridden it since I was five because the lines were always so long.
This means that Six Flags Magic Mountain will hold the record for most coasters for this year. Most enthusiasts are hoping that Cedar Point will open another coaster next year since their most recent coaster is Maverick in 2007.
It’s always somewhat sad when a park closes a coaster. Who knows, maybe they have something big in store for 2013.
What do you think? Please comment. Thanks for reading. 🙂
