Yesterday on May 2nd, 2012 Cedar Point announced the removal of the WildCat Coaster. Cedar Point said the reason was for a Celebration Plaza Expansion. Also WildCat was getting old. It was in bad condition, the maintenance price was increasing, and it was not safe. Most people, including myself, are very sad to see this Coaster leave. It was a 'piece of junk' as some people say, but it is sad to see a Roller Coaster leave.
Now to speculate what will happen in the future. (You can also read our first post for Cedar Point in 2013) Personally, I think the rumor from last month will be true - That Cedar Point will get two Coasters in 2013. A Large Coaster and a kiddie Coaster. Throughout the articles CP wrote, and Facebook/Twitter updates they really seem to be sad that the ride is leaving. They also always mention something like this: 'new Coasters are always a park of Cedar Points future.' This basically gives away that CP will get at least one new Coaster in 2013, and they are highly thinking of new Coasters to add into the park.
I believe this kiddie Coaster will go where WildCat was. Think to yourself 'What could CP put where WildCat was?' Hopefully the correct answer would be a small Coaster. CP will not removed one of there beloved 17 Coasters for something stupid, like a new food stand or skill game. What ever they will put in that location will be excellent and wont let people down.
So after the removal of WildCat, Cedar Point will be down to 16 Coasters and be in second place (with most Coasters) after Six Flags Magic Mountain. SFMM currently has 17 Coasters in 2012 and in 2013, they will build a second 18th Coaster. If CP adds a large Coaster and a kiddie Coaster in 2013, they will also have 18 Coasters.
It is still too early to say what will happen to Cedar Point in 2013, but we can only hope for the best!
