A few days ago I was so happy to see that Screamscape posted a new rumor that Cedar Point MIGHT add two Coasters in 2013 - A Big Coaster addition and now maybe a Kiddie/Family Coaster. I was also thinking this. Originally I thought Cedar Point might add in a Kiddie Coaster in 2010 but it didn't happen. So I thought 2011, but it didn't happen. Finally I was sure they will get a Kiddie Coaster in 2012, but they did not announce one. Now its good news that there is a chance that CP could possibly get a Kiddie Coaster in 2013. It also got me thinking what else CP could get in 2013.
For a location, I believe Cedar Point would add a Kiddie Coaster in the new Planet Snoopy section of the park. The new family section of the park opened a few years ago, and every time I visit CP, Planet Snoopy is dead and has no little kids in it. While, on the other side of the park, Camp Snoopy, is filled with children. If CP opens a Kiddie Coaster in Planet Snoopy, it could draw more families there.
For the Kiddie Coaster type, I would like to see a E&F Miler Coaster or a Zierer Coaster. in my opinion Miler and Zierer make the best Kiddie Coasters.
For Cedar Points other Coaster, I would love to see another Intamin, but that probably will not happen. CP has a lot of problems with Intamin over the years. They had problems with Maverick, Top Thrill Dragster, Wicked Twister, and Shoot the Rapids. Also they got a lot of Intamin Coasters over all. CP has a kiddie coaster, Jr. Gemini, a Blitz Coaster - Maverick, a Impulse Coaster - Wicked Twister, a Strata Coaster - Top-Thrill Dragster, a bobsled - Disaster Transport, and a Giga Coaster - Millennium Force. That leads Cedar Point to get a Pre-Fab Wooden Coaster (which will be AMAZING), a mega/mega-lite Coaster, Surf-Rider, a Zac-Spin, or a new Model by Intamin. But, I don't think they will receive an Intamin AG Coaster in 2013. They had a bad past with them, plus they already have a lot of them in the Park.
But, most rumors are pointing to a B&M Coaster. CP only has two B&M Coasters: a Stand Up - Mantis, and an Inverted - Raptor. A Wing Rider, Diving Coaster, Flying Coaster, Floorless Coaster, or even a Giga/Hyper Coaster could enter the Park. Since the Wing Riders have made such a big impact in the industry, CP might receive one in 2013. Personally, I would love to see one, but I also would love to see the Worlds Tallest Dive Coaster or Flying Coaster over looking Lake Erie. Maybe even CP might receive another Giga Coaster form B&M???
I would also love to see another Wooden Coaster at Cedar Point. They have two current woodies - Mean Streak and Blue Streak. Mean Streak has a great layout, but due to its rough, horrible ride experience, it is one of the most unpopular Wooden Coasters. (But, I would hate to see it leave CP). Blue Streak, there other is a great old fashioned Woodie, is a great Coaster. It is old, but smooth, has airtime, and is a great classic ride. I would like to see a GCII Wooden Coaster. One would fit great into the Park and would look great along the waters of Lake Erie. A modern Gravity Group Coaster would be nice, but I would love to see an Intamin Pre-fab. They are smooth, great, and provides some of the best Airtime ever. At Coaster Mania, Mr. Kinzel hinted he loved El Toro, but I sadly, I don't think they will be receiving one.
It is too early to tell what exact Coaster(s) Cedar Point will receive in 2013. There last Coaster addition was 5 years ago, and they are do for another one. What ever Cedar Point will receive in 2013, I am sure it will please everyone!
