Cedar Point stands by LeBron coaster promise

SANDUSKY -- As many local companies made efforts to lure LeBron James back to Cleveland, Cedar Point took a step nobody expected.

The Sandusky scream park promised LeBron earlier this week that they would rename one of their 17 roller coasters "King James" should he choose to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

When news erupted Friday afternoon that LeBron was coming home, Cedar Point officials posted this vague tweet: "Welcome home, @KingJames! What happens next at Cedar Point? Stay tuned! @cavs"

Cedar Point spokesperson Bryan Edwards tweeted out a photo of the park's skyline with the following message: "Welcome back to Ohio LeBron James! So which one will it be? Stay tuned. Our "decision" is coming soon. #IHeartCP."

Cedar Point released the following statement shortly before 6 p.m. Friday:

"Over the past few days it has been fun to watch the excitement surrounding the potential and now realized, return of LeBron James to Cleveland. We stand ready to honor our original tweet. Congratulations Cleveland!"

Still no word on which ride would be renamed or what it would be called.
