Space Spiral and Disaster Transport will be removed for a Bolliger & Mabillard Wing Coaster to open in 2013 at Cedar Point.

The Sandusky Register, citing a February 15 memo from Cedar Fair CEO Matt Ouimet to the company's board of directors, says the coaster will have “longest drop, run the fastest and be the longest ride" and make a “Front Gate Statement — a roller coaster that flies overhead, rolls and flies back— highly visible above guests entering the park.”

The new ride will feature a 170-foot tall lift hill and span an area from the main gate, over a portion of the exiting parking lot, over to the area currently occupied by Disaster Transport and Space Spiral.
