Last night, violent and catastrophic thunderstorms struck Northeast Ohio, bringing hail, strong winds, and extensive flooding. One of the areas that got hit the hardest was Sandusky, Ohio, home to the roller coaster capital of the world, Cedar Point.

Gemini, one of the oldest wooden roller coasters around, received some minor damage to the base of the coaster, as shown in the photos above. Other underwater areas include the new construction zone for Top Thrill 2, arriving in 2024. The Corkscrew roller coaster also sustained water damage as flooding filled the area after the devasting flooding and storms that struck portions of Northeast Ohio through 3 a.m. this morning. But the bits underwater did not stop there.

Yet another roller coaster suffered some water damage and flooding from yesterday’s storms. As shown in the photos above, the Iron Dragon roller coaster had water overflowing from the nearby bank. The same account also posted a video showing the flooding in greater detail.

CPFoodBlog also captured more footage of the flooding inside Cedar Point, as portions of a much-beloved area, typically where Halloweekends takes place, were submerged underwater.

Whoa, not sure we’ve ever seen flooding of this area. #CedarPoint

The theme park has not released any official statement on the flooding overtaking portions of the theme park. There is no word on whether or not the roller coasters currently taking in water are damaged or will need any form of extensive refurbishment.

Inside The Magic will keep a close eye on this matter as one of our native to this area in Northeast Ohio (myself, duh) and will look to enter the theme park soon to provide updates and more as information continues to pour in.
