Cedar Point 2014 New Rides Review – Pics – Video – I attended their media day to review Pipe Scream and Lake Erie Eagles before the park opened for the 2014 season.
The Pipe Scream and Lake Erie Eagles are fun family rides. The Pipe Scream reminds me of the Pirate Ship but with waves and a rotation added in. Riders sit in the large car with the two sides facing each other. The car rolls on the giant waves of the track while spinning in large rotations at the same time. It’s not a high thrill ride, but more of an enjoyable ride with a mild thrill so it’s great for kids, families, and the nervous riders. Pipe Scream rides along 302 feet of track, reaching a maximum height of 43 feet and at speeds topping 40 mph! Height Requirement: 42″ minimum to ride; riders between 42″ and 48″ must be accompanied by a responsible person.
The Lake Erie Eagles is based on the classic carnival ride with the set of swings that raise up and then rotate in a circle for the duration of the ride. The uniqueness comes from an added feature that gives the rider some control over the experience. There is a handle that riders can move from side to side and it controls the fin and angle of the swing rather than just having it face one direction for the entire ride. Guests on Lake Erie Eagles will sit in one of eight ride carriages that are suspended from arms located more than 28 feet above the ground. Height Requirement: 36″ minimum to ride; 36″ – 44″ must be accompanied by a responsible person.
