STEEL VENGEANCE at Cedar Point for 2018!
#1



















Cedar Point announces STEEL VENGEANCE, the world's tallest and fastest hybrid coaster, new for 2018. At 205' tall, will be the first hybrid coaster over 200'. 90º first drop with a top speed of 74 MPH.
Going from one of the worst coasters at the park to one of their best, if not the best! I love that the back story they came up with is it is a machine to defeat the Maverick!

Hey, that's a really nice steel coaster they built there! The wood effect is kinda cute, too... Tongue

IMHO, lift is too fast... need to have a little anticipation going over that crest. Nice try on the marketing... looks like the Old West & World of Warcraft had some sexytime & popped that out. (Blood Elf cowgirls? Hmmm...)

DragonTamer, if you had ridden Mean Streak, you would understand why this faster lift is an improvement.....you could have taken a nap on the old one! lol It was great for sunset watching, but otherwise sucked!

You're implying that I haven't ridden Mean Streak.  I have.  Problem is, the rest of the ride shook out all my memory of the lift hill. Tongue

I have no problem with a faster transit, it just needs to slow down at the crest so as not to hurl you over... if Lagoon can pull off a variable-speed woodie lift chain, I garon-damn-tee ya CP can.

DragonTamer, you obviously didn't ride in car 1 of the gold train and/or we're not riding in the proper defensive riding position then. lol Mean Streak always had a variable speed lift, which was why the coupling of the train to the chain was so smooth. In all honesty, Dinn did a good job in that regard.

It is important to remember that this is a just an animation. It could have a lift like on iron rattler where it slows down at the top. 

I like the name but as much as I like back story, in that it is to take frontier town back from the "Maverick", the name is a little too tied to the story. I would like the name more if it was just vengeance.

I honestly couldn't tell ya... I think it was probably something like 2001 or so, and these days, remembering what I was working on the night before by the next morning is tricky enough.  I know Millennium Force was still the newest coaster at the point I went.  I clearly didn't know about the defensive riding position at the time I went, because I distinctly remember it being the first time in my life I needed a break after riding a roller coaster.

It will be one of the first coasters to receive RMC's Gen2 trains.
