Farewell Wicked Twister - 8/14/2021

With Cedar Point's recent announcement that Wicked Twister would be giving its final rides early next month, Sarah and I took our final ride on this Intamin Impulse Coaster today while visiting the park.

Wicked Twister was designed by Intamin Amusement Rides and features two 215 foot tall vertical twists.  The coaster uses multiple LIM launches through the station to reach a top speed of 72 miles per hour.  The single train with 8 cars carries a total of 32 riders on an inverted steel track.  Cedar Point opened the ride on May 5th 2002.  According to the park's website, Wicked Twister has given more than 16 million rides.  The coaster's 20th and final season will come to an end on September 6th.
