Cedar Point’s Rougarou: Sneak Peek of the BEAST!
Rougarou is starting to wake-up and show us some of what he’s made of!! Cedar Point Director of Communications, Tony Clark, posted a PointCast Minute video on YouTube today of the revamped coaster that’ll make it’s debut this season on May 9th. With only 17 days remaining until Opening Day, we’ve seen pictures, renderings, and commentary from park officials about the BEAST, but we’ve yet to see the train in action on the track. Well……as Tony tweeted out today, you’re gonna wanna see the video below. Have a look at a fun pun from Tony, cool shots of the coaster’s track, which includes the sweet new paint job and the wicked sounds the floor makes when it drops in the station!!
HOW COOL WAS THAT!?!?!? Rougarou is certainly a welcomed sight for C.P. lovers who just can’t get enough of these solid scream machines. The swamp monster also has a swamp beneath a portion of the coaster that’ll provide a cool illusion that you could be snatched underwater and about to become the BEAST’S dinner. No fear, the Thing feeds on screams and it’ll be well worth it when you take it for a spin.
With over 60 MPH of speed and going down 137 feet, you’ll be getting your Fast Lane passes worth by getting to this one many times per visit. The Bolliger & Mabillard, aka B&M, constructed coaster, which lasts 2 minutes and 15 seconds, certainly will be a massive upgrade from Mantis and will add to the legacy of the park’s World-Class Coaster Collection.
We’re LESS than three Saturdays away from Opening Day!!! Keep it locked here and on our social media channels for all of the Cedar Point & Rougarou updates. Remember folks, Keep Calm and Ride On!!!
