The park’s newest roller coaster, Rougarou, is getting some fine tuning today, as technicians install connections to the ride’s retractable floor. The floorless coaster will take riders on a 60 miles-per-hour journey as their feet dangle beneath them.

Cedar Point will open for the season on Saturday, May 9th.

Here’s a preview video of Rougarou.
