Cedar Point’s classic wooden roller coaster Blue Streak, flashed onto the scene in 1964, treating riders to the old-school thrills of gravity-driven speed and unexpected airtime. Still a favorite for many, Blue Streak offers a traditional “out and back” track layout offering great, if brief, views of other major park attractions.
There’s a runaway mine train on the loose and you’re a passenger! The Cedar Creek Mine Ride takes you on a wild journey up hills, through a tunnel and over water, finishing up with a signature helix whirlwind as the ride finishes. When it comes to old-fashioned thrills, the Cedar Creek Mine Ride is gold.
Turning the traditional coaster experience on its head, Corkscrew was the first coaster in history to invert riders three times over the course of its run. It also was the first coaster to span a park midway as it corkscrews, giving riders and park-goers views of each other with an amazingly exciting perspective.
Gatekeeper, a beautiful bright blue winged coaster, is Cedar Point's newest attraction. Gatekeeper stands guard at the front gate of the park with its photogenic "interlocking zero gravity rolls." Gatekeeper's addition to the park, which ultimately was the demise of Disaster Transport, opened up a much better view of the beach and surrounding areas.
What could be more exciting than a wild roller coaster that broke height and speed records when it was introduced? How about a second coaster train racing along a parallel track! You’re either Blue or Red, and the race is on over tracks that promise drops, twists, turns, airtime and a big finish. No matter the result, you’re the winner riding Gemini.
Glide down toward Cedar Point's Lagoon and sweep away at the last moment all with no tracks beneath you! The Iron Dragon suspended coaster moves like no other, swinging and swaying as it makes its way around a track that takes you in and around the woods and over the misty lagoon itself.
For coaster enthusiasts around the world, the Magnum XL-200 is the ultimate ride. Situated right on the Lake Erie shore, Magnum was the first complete circuit coaster to top 200 feet – you can see Canada on a clear day. Accelerating down its incredible first hill, Magnum reaches a top speed of 72 MPH, while rocketing you over multiple hills, 3 tunnels, and a signature “pretzel” turnaround.
You’ve heard of the Wild West--now you can ride it! Maverick is the coaster for riders who want one-of-a-kind thrills beyond the big hills. Saddle up and get ready for more twists, turns and airtime than a rodeo. Plus you’ll go through a “twisted horseshoe roll” and 400-foot-long speed launch through a pitch black tunnel. How about that, Pardner!
It’s the big star of the show. A true Giant among coasters. So huge, it created a whole new category – the giga-coaster. Welcome to Millennium Force, the 310 foot, 93 MPH record-breaking monster of a thrill ride. The first hill features an elevator cable lift system to get you to the top faster, then it’s an 80-degree drop to start the coaster ride of your life!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for Pipe Scream! Enjoy the best of both worlds when Pipe Scream, a combination of a roller coaster and thrill ride, spins it way onto the Gemini Midway this summer.
