Cedar Point announces two new family rides for 2014

Two redundant kiddie flat rides will be removed along with a series of carnival games that weren't used this year, and a Disc'O Coaster called Pipe Scream will be put in their place. Across the Midway will be Lake Erie Eagles, a spinner where the eight ride vehicles are spun around a central tower, and riders have a rudder where they can control the "flight." This is a similar ride to the Surfside Gliders that sister park Knott's Berry Farm installed on its Boardwalk this year. Frog Hopper (a kiddie tower drop) will be moved to Camp Snoopy and renamed Woodstock's Airmail, and Jr. Gemini will have its entrance moved to Camp Snoopy and renamed "Wilderness Run." And it looks like the Bumper Boats will be bumped out of the park.
In a nice twist, Cedar Point invited a contest-winning family to introduce the additions in a video:
They also announced how the Breakers improvements are to be done. It will be a two year plan, with the outside being redone for the 2014 season and an interior renovation for 2015.
