Okay, so it was rumored last year that Cedar Point may be getting a dark ride in 2014. Turns out that rumor was false, the dark ride ended up at Canada's Wonderland as Wonder Mountain's Guardian. It's not the first time that's happened either, in the past Knott's Berry Farm was to get a giga coaster and that ended up in Canada as Leviathan.
So, here we are once again with a rumor stating that Cedar Point may finally get their dark ride, assuming of course this one doesn't get shipped off either. However, there is a case for things this time around. As reported by Screamscape, this mainly comes in the way of something from Twitter and the name of a camp site. Doesn't get any weirder than that, but here we are.
First up, the tweet from Cedar Point's Tony Clark:
Currently working diligently on 2015. Did I spel that rite? More importantly, did I say it right...

First off, "spel" is an Old English spelling for the word "spell", as in magical spells. Next up is the word "rite", which by definition is typically a ritual of some kind. So out of context it seems like nothing, but a little deeper look and we get a ritual spell out of it. Now, that last bit? Any fan of the Evil Dead movies should get the reference there to Army of Darkness, saying these things is important, just ask Ash how that turns out if you get it wrong. Remember, don't speak the Latin!
The other clue is that the temporary camp name during the Coaster Campout Event that was held over the weekend of 19th and 20th. The name was Camp Rou. On it's own, it seems rather innocuous. However, knowing that Cedar Fair has filed a trademark for Rougarou, the French word for Werewolf earlier this year makes it a little more interesting than normal. Interestingly enough, it also is an abbreviation for Romania (nice tie in there) and I doubt they meant it to mean Roué which is a man devoted to a life of sensual pleasure. It could be, but that'd be weird.
