SANDUSKY, Ohio — Cedar Point amusement park has reversed a policy that banned visitors waiting in line for the roller coaster Steel Vengeance from carrying cellphones, confirms park spokesman Tony Clark.
The Sandusky-area park is adding zippered pouches to the bottom of the roller coaster seats, to hold phones and other loose items.
The park implemented a policy banning cellphones in the line for the record-breaking ride which features four inversions.
During the first weeks of the ride’s operation, numerous riders reported losing their cellphones and other items on the roller coaster.
Clark says “standard safety rules still apply” and the only change is allowing riders to carry their phones again.
