In 2000, Giant Wheel moved from it's location on Frontier Trail to the new beach. In 2000, the Beach Midway was home to Kiddy Kingdom, Disaster Transport, Space Spiral, Schwabinchen, Peanuts Playground, Ocean Motion, Disaster Transport food court, Games Plaza, Macaroni's, Coral Dining Room, French Fries, Stadium Games and the Cedar Point Aquatic Stadium.
The Giant Wheel was the begining of a more then decade long expasion and chage for this midway. In 2000, there were 19 rides in this area of the park. In 2013, there were 23 rides. Since 2000, there have been 5 rides that have been removed from this area.
In 2002, Cedar Point opened the new Wicked Twister.
Wicked Twister is the tallest tallest and fastest impulse roller coaster ever built!
When Wicked Twister opened in 2002, it was Cedar Point's 2nd tallest and fastest roller coaster and the only impulse roller coaster in the world to have two twisting towers!
Because of Wicked Twister's high rate of instant speed there is no lift hill on this ride! Wicked Twister was Cedar Point's first roller coaster to utilize a launch system. Wicked Twister uses magnets to launch the ride from 0 to 72 MPH!
Fun Fact: For as small a space the ride uses, Maverick uses less power then Wicked Twister!
Wicked Twisters entrance is on the site of the former Aquarium of the park.
The station is located on the beach. Wicked Twister riders must be 52 inches tall to ride!
