So what do you think? Was the leaked video faked or did someone get fired for releasing it too early? 
Personally, I feel and hope that the video is real. That design looks awesome and I would actually wait in line for a stupid amount of time to ride it. Either way, we will officially find out from Cedar Point tomorrow. 
In other Cedar Point news, earlier this month, the park announced a new feature for 2024...the All Park Passport. This premium addon for Gold and Prestige season passes holders grants the holder access to all parks in the Cedar Fair family like Carowinds, Dorney Park, Michigan's Adventure, and more.
