Cedar Point's new "Slingshot" ride is called "VertiGo". The car will hold 6 riders at a time and there will be three different ways to ride it. Riders will be shot 265 feet into the air, and if you choose, you will plummet back to the earth head first. As for the new ride rumors: No one would like to see 2 new coasters at the point than me, but come on...where will they put them. They didn't even have room for Millenium Force until Intamin designed their elevator lift system for the first hill. If the point is getting 2-3 new major rides, they will have to be very creative with the little bit of space that they have.
