Cedar Point rolls out record-breaking new hybrid coaster 

It seems that even roller coasters can be vengeful. 

For proof of that, turn to Steel Vengeance, Cedar Point’s new 75-mile-per-hour roller coaster.

The Sandusky amusement park bills it as the world’s first “hyper-hybrid” coaster and calls it a “massive wooden structure with smooth, steel track.”

The park’s official opening date is May 5.

A media preview of the coaster is happening  today. 

The Cleveland Plain Dealer shares some of the ride's memorable elements: a 205-foot first hill, a 90-degree first drop and four inversion, that twist in and out of the ride's massive wooden frame. 

The ride also features 27 seconds of airtime, the most on any coaster anywhere, the Plain Dealer shares. The ride features a new technology of restraint that uses a lap bar, not an over-the-shoulders harness, with an added element that pushes against your legs, holding your body in place.

The ride replaces the Mean Streak, which debuted in 1991 and was once the tallest wooden roller coaster in the world. The park is also home to Millennium Force, which is consistently ranked among the very best roller coasters in the world.

Like Kings Island in Mason, Cedar Point is owned by Cedar Fair Entertainment Co.

Kings Island is already open for the season.
