Have you ever been to Cedar Point, the roller coaster capital of the world? OMG I LOVE that place. We went a couple of years ago when we took our youth group for a two-day fun-filled excursion. Seriously — I have been to a lot of theme parks in my life, but Cedar Point is one of my favorites.
They have SO many roller coasters to ride — a thrill ride for every kind of rider out there. From the daredevils like my son who took the plunge and rode the Wicked Twister and Millenium Force, to the more milder rides like the swings and Carousel. They have a ride for everyone.
And this year — they have FINALLY opened the Steel Vengence.
About the Steel Vengence
When we visited a couple of years ago, they were in the process of building this roller coaster, and I knew right then it was going to be awesome.
The three are bringing with them a roller coaster forged so big and so bold, an entirely new category of thrill ride has been branded: the hyper-hybrid – the world’s first steel-on-wood hybrid roller coaster to stand over 200 feet tall. Mirroring Blackjack’s impressive height, Chess’ unconventional and wild personality and Digger’s blazing speed of the draw, this new machine is now the force to be reckoned with. The law-abidin’ folk of FrontierTown has a new leader – Steel Vengeance.
This Wild West thrill comes action-packed with a height of 205 feet above the prairie, a 90-degree initial drop down to the earth, almost 30 seconds of airtime (the most on any roller coaster on Earth), 4 head-over-boots inversions, ricocheting movements left-to-right, up-to-down and side to side.
I cannot wait to go back so I can watch my kids tackle this roller coaster! They have ridden every other one there, so this will be an exciting ride for them.
Steel Vengence won the award for Best New Ride at the 2018 Golden Ticket Awards! Additionally, Steel Vengeance came in third for Best Steel Coaster, right behind Millennium Force (2nd) and Fury 325 (1st).
