Cedar Point offering first-ride tickets for new coaster

Cedar Point

Cedar Point and the LeBron James Family Foundation are teaming up to give coaster enthusiasts the chance to be the first riders on Steel Vengeance.

Tickets for the Steel Vengeance First Rider Benefit are $75 per person and will go on sale Monday, March 19.

The event will take place on Friday, April 27 from 6-10 p.m.

For those who want additional bragging rights, tickets for the event and the coveted first public train are $250 each.

Steel Vengeance is the world’s first “hyper-hybrid” roller coaster which combines a wooden structure and steel track.

Along with a ride on Steel Vengeance, those who purchase tickets also get rides on the Maverick roller coaster, complimentary food and beverage and a souvenir.

After the benefit, an exclusive event will be held for Cedar Point season and platinum passholders on April 30 through May 2. This will give those passholders a chance to ride the new coaster.
