Scrambler is a classic spinning ride that was built by the Eli Bridge Company. It is one of Cedar Point's oldest rides.
The 1950's was a traditional period for Cedar point. In the early 1950's the park was really falling apart. In 1956 Cedar Point was bought by local business men with plans to close the resort and turn it into housing development. After protesting, the new owners decide to turn Cedar Point into ''The Disneyland of the Mid-west." Cedar Point added Cadillac Cars in 1958. Turnpike Cars and the Monorail were added in 1959.
On Thursday, August 11, 2022, Cedar Point announced it was building The Boardwalk for the 2023 season. The new area would include The Grand Pavilion and Cedar Point's newest roller coaster, Wild Mouse. Scrambler would also be relocated to this area where it would be renamed, and rethemed as Atomic Scrambler.
Atomic Scrambler is a remaining and retheming of Cedar Point's classic Scrambler ride.
In 2015 Mantis was transformed from a Stand Up roller coaster to Cedar Point's first flourless roller coaster, Rougarou! Shoot the Rapids would close unexpectedly in 2015. Valravn began diving into Cedar Point in 2016. Later in 2016 Mean Streak would close. In 2017 Cedar Fair would get a new CEO, Richard Zimmerman.

Dinosaur's Alive! would close in 2018 as well. In 2019 Forbidden Frontier on Adventure Island would open as Cedar Point's new themed adventure area. In 2020 Cedar Point intended to celebrate its 150th anniversary, sadly it was delayed until 2021 due to the global pandemic. Cedar Point would celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2021. Cedar Point also got a new General Manager in 2021, Carrie Boldman. Snake River Expedition was a reimagining of a classic Cedar Point family ride that opened in 2021.
