Ohio's roller coaster capital is offering a bargain on tickets this weekend.

Twists and turns like no other begin to take shape for Cedar Point's Steel Vengeance, the world's first hyper-hybrid coaster.


Cedar Point, located in Sandusky, is offering a buy one, get one free ticket deal for President's Day weekend. The offer, two tickets for $72, is available until Monday online

The tickets are valid for admission for one day at the amusement park between May 5 through Sept. 3. Tickets are general and do not include fast lane passes.

Cedar Point has 18 roller coasters and 70 rides total. In August, the park announced its FrontierTown will be transformed this spring with the addition of Steel Vengeance, the tallest, fasted and longest hybrid roller coaster. The hybrid design will combine a "massive wooden structure" with a steel running track "enabling the coaster’s trains to perform maneuvers previously unheard of on a wooden roller coaster."


Steel Vengeance will be more than 200 feet tall and last 2 minutes, 30 seconds. Riders will board one of three trains and climb 205 feet above FrontierTown. Once they crest the lift hill, they’ll be staring straight down a 90-degree initial drop and a 200-foot fall.

Cedar Point opens for the 2018 season on May 5 at 10 a.m.
