Cedar Point closes Wildcat; Magic Mountain has coaster title to itself
Written by Robert Niles
Cedar Point announced this morning that it will demolish the Wildcat roller coaster. The Schwarzkopf steel coaster opened for the 1979 season, and Cedar Point cited "low ridership and increased maintenance costs" as factors in the decision to eliminate the aging coaster, which will make way for an expansion of the park's Celebration Plaza.Tweet
There'll be one fewer coaster on the Roller Coast this summer
The removal of the Wildcat takes Cedar Point down to 16 coasters, giving Six Flags Magic Mountain the "most coasters" title to itself. Cedar Point is now tied for second with Canada's Wonderland.
