If the coaster is confirmed, Disaster Transport and Space Spiral will be removed from the park to allow room for the new coaster, which is proposed to be a "Front Gate Statement — a roller coaster that flies overhead, rolls and flies back — highly visible above guests entering the park.”
So, it is assumed that the coaster will occupy the space of Disaster Transport and Space Spiral, plus part of what is now the Premium Parking Lot. According the article, the ride will have a 170-foot tall hill, and is said to be the longest ride time and track length than any other Wing-style roller coaster.
Could this mean that we are loosing three attractions this year, including one that has been a staple of the park for over forty-five years? We'll have to wait and see; there haven't been any confirmations from Cedar Point or Cedar Fair officials yet.
However, Lee Alexakos, the vice president of the marketing department at Cedar Point, has said that "we have not announced any plans for 2013 but we did announce a $25 million investment. This will be one of the largest capital expenditures ever," according the Sandusky Register article.
