This summer Cedar Point turns their attention back to the family as they update the Gemini Midway near the back of the park. In addition to revamping the area Cedar Point is adding two brand new family style rides. The first is called Lake Erie Eagles; a classic family ride in which riders will swing from a suspended car with eagle themed painting. The cars will hang from arms 28 feet in the air as they are spun in a circular motion and passengers are swung outward. Guests will have the unique opportunity to control their flight by maneuvering a flap that will change their ride from mild to wild. Lake Erie Eagles has a 36 inch minimum to ride with a responsible person or 46 inch requirement to fly solo.
The other new addition to the midway is Pipe Scream; a family ride with a bit of a thrill. The ride will rock riders back and forth along 300 feet of track, reaching 43 feet in the air, and a top speed of 40 miles per hour. Guests will be arranged in three rows of five facing each other from opposite sides. The ride unit itself will spin riders as the ride crests the 40 foot spikes and a small hill in the middle. Riders must be 42 inches to ride with a responsible person or 48 inches to ride alone.
