Pipe Scream is billed as “combining the best of a roller coaster and a flat ride in one.”

According to park spokesman Bryan Edwards, riders will spin and coast over 302 feet of track, reaching a maximum height of 43 feet above the midway and a top speed of 43 miles per hour.

Pipe Scream is just one of the many new attractions slated to debut this summer at the park voted the “Best Amusement Park in the World.” Guests will also be able to enjoy the new Lake Erie Eagles and SlingShot rides, a multitude of new food choices, a refreshed Camp Snoopy kids’ area, new cabins, live shows, and more.

Cedar Point opens to the general public for the 2014 season on Saturday, May 10.
