Cedar Point announced today that Disaster Transport will be closing on July 29th after 27 years of service. Disaster Transport was opened in 1985 as Avalanche Run, an outdoor bobsled coaster. For the 1990 season, Cedar Point had Avalanche Run enclosed and re-themed to Disaster Transport, a ride that "launches" you into outer space on a trip to Alaska.
Cedar Point is raising money to benefit Give Kids the World. The park has setup a fundraising site for anyone interested in taking part of a special event for the last ride. The top 50 fundraisers will be guaranteed a spot on the final run of Disaster Transport after an hour long ERT session.
The park also confirmed the removal of Space Spiral from the park but the date that the ride will close is yet to be decided. Cedar Point said these two rides would be removed to make room for "@!!$!(*%%" and mentioned about "flying into the future."
