Pipe Scream opened in 2014 as a family roller coaster on the new Gemini Midway. Pipe Scream takes riders up and down on a wavy track.
After Cedar Point opened Top Thrill Dragster, the park would add a variety of new attractions. In 2005, Cedar Point added maXair, a 140 foot swinging pendulum ride. In 2006 Sky Hawk opened as the world's tallest swing ride. Maverick arrived to frontier town in 2007. In 2008 Planet Snoopy was relocated to the park from Geauga Lake. Shoot the Rapids opened in 2010 as the parks modern flume ride. In 2011 riders would sing 301 feet above the beach on WindSeeker. In 2012, Dinosaurs Alive opened on Adventure Island! GateKeeper flew over the new front gate in 2013. With all of these impressive changes 2014 would be anther year of change.
Over the years the Gemini Midway became very rundown. The area had not changed much over the years. The area had the same look and feel as it did it 1978. It became very clear that the Gemini midway would need a new update.
On August 27, 2013, Cedar Point announced the new Gemini Midway. The area would be completely redone. Gemini Children's Area would be replaced with Pipe Scream and Lake Erie Eagles. The area would feature a new Yogurt Plus and Coke Freestyle. The new make over of the midway was really nice!
Pipe Scream opened as the parks 17th roller coaster on Saturday, May 10, 2014.
Pipe Scream stats by rocking its riders back and both on its 301 foot u shaped track.
As the ride gains speed it starts to spin around in a circle.
As the ride goes over the hills you experience some decent airtime. At the top of the spikes riders experience some cool hang time.
The ride experience last about 2 and a half minutes.
Pipe Scream is a good ride for the entire family to ride together.
Pipe Scream's Impact On The Roller Coaster Capital Of The World
Pipe Scream was a great addition to Cedar Point. It filled void that was created over the last decade with removals like Paddlewheel Excursions, Disaster Transport, and Space Spiral.
Pipe Scream is a great ride for families.
After the addition of Pipe Scream, Cedar Point focused on adding bigger and better attractions including: Rougarou (2015), Valravn (2016), Cedar Point Shores Water Park (2017), Steel Vengeance (2018), Forbidden Frontier on Adventure island (2019), and Cedar Point's 150th Anniversary Celebration (2021). All of these new attractions have helped balance out Cedar Point's additions.
Riders must be 48 inches tall to ride alone. Riders 42 inches tall can ride with a supervising companion.
