New ride for Challenge Park
Cedar Point amusement park/resort, Sandusky, Ohio, will introduce Skyscraper in the Challenge Park activity complex this May.
This towering thrill ride manufactured by Gravity Works features a giant propeller consisting of two arms that will spin guests in a full circle.
Four riders, two on each arm, will sit in open cars with their feet dangling, on opposite ends of the propeller. The arms of the propeller quickly rotate in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction, spinning riders 16 stories into the air at speeds of up to 55 mph. At its highest point, riders will be upside down 160ft above the ground.
Located between Cedar Point and the neighbouring Soak City waterpark, Challenge Park also features the RipCord Skycoaster, two high-speed go-kart tracks and a pair of 18-hole miniature golf courses. Each attraction requires a separate fee.
