10th Anniversary Edition!
The roller coaster wars of the 1990's brought bigger and better things to Cedar Point. In 1997 Cedar Point expanded the water park to include more slides and attractions. Riders were launched or dropped 240 feet in `1998 with Power Tower. In 1999 Camp Snoopy opened with a new roller coaster for families. The world's tallest and fastest roller coaster came in 2000 in the form of Millennium Force. A one of a kind attraction, Wicked twister became the tallest and fastest inverted roller coaster in the world. In 2003, riders were launched 420 feet into the air on the tallest roller coaster Cedar Point ever built. Riders were spun 140 feet in the air with maXair in 2005 and swung 125 feet in the air with Sky Hawk in 2006. With all these changes over 10 years a big new attraction was due in 2007.
In 1997 Cedar Point added the Swan Boats. They floated around in Frontier Town for a few years. Swan Boats was a simple boat ride in which riders pedaled around in a small pond. The ride closed forever on September 1, 2003. The ride was relocated to Michigan's Adventure for the 2004 season. The ride is still in operation at Michigan's Adventure.
In October 2005, Cedar Point closed its log flume, White Water Landing. The ride was built by Arrow in 1982. White Water Landing was a very popular ride and guest really missed the ride after it was removed. With White Water Landing and Swan Boats out of the way, Cedar Point would have room for a huge new attraction.
