Steel Vengeance is a steel roller coaster located at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, USA. It was built by Rocky Mountain Construction and uses much of the wooden support structure of the former Mean Streak roller coaster.
History[edit | edit source]
Mean Streak closed on September 16, 2016.
In July 2017, some additional details were revealed about the ride at a media preview day. Cedar Point stated that they were aiming for a May 2018 opening and the ride's first drop would be larger than 200 feet. The roller coaster was officially unveiled at noon on August 16, 2017.
The ride officially opened on May 5, 2018. At 13:30 on opening day, an incoming train collided with another in the station. No guests were hospitalised and Steel Vengeance was closed for investigation. It reopened the next day on May 6, albeit on one train operation. On June 1, a second train returned to operation.
Design[edit | edit source]
According to Cedar Point, Steel Vengeance broke 15 different records when it opened in 2018. These include the record for world's tallest hybrid roller coaster at 205 feet, the world's fastest hybrid roller coaster at 74 mph, the longest hybrid roller coaster at 5,740 feet and the most airtime on any roller coaster in the world, with a total 27.2 seconds of airtime.
