Record-breaking roller coaster set to launch in Ohio this summer

Ohio theme park Cedar Point recently gave an up-close look at the new world-record-breaking Steel Vengeance roller coaster.

The park announced new updates at its annual “Winter Chill Out” event, an exclusive off-season tour in which all proceeds go towards “A Kid Again”—an organization that fosters hope, happiness and healing for families dealing life-threatening illnesses.
