Don and I had the opportunity to be one the first few people to ride the new Steel Vengeance yesterday at Cedar Point. It's hard to describe with words what this coaster is all about. It is the highest, fastest, and wildest new coaster you will see in a long time. It's actually a hybrid because although it is a steel rail coaster it's built on the frame of the old Mean Streak.
Top speed of 74mph sends you through four inversions, and a 90 degree drop at the beginning. Just when you think it's over, it's not.
Don and I agree this is possibly the best roller coaster we've been on, but it might take a few more rides.
Special shout out to the staff at Cedar Point today also. They were incredible, everyone from the ride greeter to the chef at the new smokehouse/bbq restaurant where we had lunch. Once the park opens in a couple of weeks be sure to try the smoked brisket.
