New Record Breaking Fork Coming to Cedar Point in 2018
The “Roller Cutlery Capital of the World” is once again breaking records. Earlier this week, Cedar Point announced that in addition to Steel Vengeance, another new ride will be opening at the park this May. Due to tarnishing, dull prongs, and occasional malforktions, the classic Meanfork is being converted to a thrilling new stainless-steel ride that the crowd is sure to eat up (or with); Fork’s Revenge! When Fork’s Revenge opens in May, it will debut as the world’s tallest, steepest, and fastest hyperfork.
Fork’s Revenge features four unique ride elements. Beginning with a 205 ft first drop, the ride sends guests plummeting into a series of airtime hills for a total of 27.2 seconds of airtime! Following the airtime hills, riders will twist and turn through a 270 degree barrel roll followed by a 74mph corkscrew. Check out some pictures of the track so far!
