A recent find on the Federal Aviation Administration website, shows that Cedar Point is seeking approval for a 236 foot tall slingshot ride. When plugging in the coordinates given on the filing, it looks like the addition would be going near the restrooms by Gemini, as part of the Gemini Midway expansion! If you look at the photo below, you’ll see the green arrow, landing directly where the coordinates of the FAA request indicates.
Here is the official submission:
With this find, it begs a few questions. What will it be called? Why isn’t it a part of Challenge Park? Will it be an up-charge like other Cedar Fair parks? Will it be made by the Funtime Group or another manufacturer? Will this be a part of the 2014 season? Will we continue to see more things happening for 2014?
There may be some hints in this interview Tony did with In The Loop!
At this point, it is all speculation but could be coming in the future. What are your thoughts?
