Steel Force is a Morgan hyper roller coaster located at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA.

History[edit | edit source]

The former stand-up roller coaster at Cedar Point, Mantis, was originally going to be named "Banshee". However, the name was changed due to sensitivity reasons (Banshee is an Irish myth, supposedly seeing or hearing one means death). The logo was then adopted by Dorney Park, another Cedar Fair-owned park to use for Steel Force.
