Cedar Point Rides


Calypso - Similar to the park's Scrambler ride, Calypso spins riders on a giant, moving platform. The cars spin counter-clockwise while the tilted platform spins clockwise, giving riders a crazy experience!

Cedar Downs Racing Derby - Ride one of 64 horses, all racing for a first-place finish in the Derby! It's one of only two racing carrousels in the U.S. and its history dates back to 1920. Four-abreast horses "race" on a giant rotating turntable, and each horse moves forward and backward.

Chaos – A Chance-Morgan Chaos that opened in 1997 as one of the first rides of its kind in the world. It inverts its riders in three degrees of motion: lifting, inverting, and spinning. Chaos is currently for sale. There was another Chaos present at Indiana Beach in Monticello Indiana. The ride is in full operating order as of the 2010 season.

Dodgem - It's an amusement park classic. Get behind the wheel of your own bumper car and take a crash course in family fun!

Matterhorn - Feel the sensation of traveling up and down the hills of the Matterhorn. Individual cars rock back-and-forth while rotating around a circular, hilly course.

maXair – A Huss Giant Frisbee ride that swings back and forth at an arc of up to 120 degrees and reaches a height of 140 feet. maXair provides the amazing sensation of airtime. 50 riders strap in with their feet dangling below.

Monster - Spin, turn and move up and down on the Monster. Each of the ride's cars spin individually while the arms they're attached to turn, rise and fall.

Ocean Motion - The seas aren't rough on this classic! Climb aboard this giant swinging ship and prepare for a journey 65 feet into the air.

Power Tower – A Drop Tower ride featuring both a Space Shot and Turbo Drop. Power Tower is the only four-towered Drop Tower ride in the world, devoting two towers to each drop cycle. All four towers are 240 feet tall.

Scrambler - The classic Scrambler was definitely named appropriately. Spin counter-clockwise in your car while at the same time, the entire ride spins clockwise.

Wave Swinger - Feel the sensation of floating on this giant swing ride. Rise 16 feet into the air in your individual swing that's attached to a rotating, rising tower.
