CEDAR POINT ANNOUNCES FLOORLESS ROLLER COASTER

Cedar Point, Sandusky, Ohio, will introduce a dynamically new riding experience when it unleashes Rougarou in the spring of 2015. Named after a terrifying werewolf-like creature in French folklore, Rougarou [roo-guh-roo] feeds on screams and lurks in and around the swampy lagoon at the center of the park.

Rougarou's floorless trains will take riders on an epic journey at speeds reaching 60 mph as their feet dangle just inches above the track and the murky waters below. The trains will be manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard (Monthey, Switzerland) and will transform the ride experience dramatically while utilizing the structure and track of the former Mantis roller coaster.
