SANDUSKY, Ohio (WJW) – Labor Day Monday is the last time Cedar Point fans can ride the park’s Wicked Twister roller coaster before it closes for good.
In an announcement early last month, Cedar Point officials said the double-twisting impulse roller coaster will close on Monday, Sept. 6 to make way for future projects.
Wicked Twister opened in 2002. When it made its debut, the 215-foot-tall, 72-mph ride was marketed as the tallest and fastest double-twisting impulse roller coaster in the world.
In celebration, Cedar Point is giving away commemorative “last launch” buttons to everyone who rides Wicked Twister on Labor Day.
The buttons will be available while supplies last.
Also on Monday, managers throughout the park will be wearing golden “last launch ticket to ride” lanyards. To save your spot on the Wicked Twister’s final ride at the park’s closing, simply ask the manager wearing the lanyard for the last launch.
Anyone who gets these tickets will be able to bring a friend along.
There will be 16 tickets to find.
The ride became Cedar Point’s 15th roller coaster when it opened.
