Cedar Point closing Witches’ Wheel ride to make room for future expansion

The final rides on Witches' Wheel will be given on Labor Day.

SANDUSKY, Ohio -- It’s almost time to say goodbye.

Cedar Point has announced they are closing the Witches’ Wheel spinning thrill ride next month.

“As with most things that we do, it’s in the interest of future expansion,” park spokesperson Tony Clark said on Cedar Point’s blog. “But what does THAT mean? We’re not ready to say.”

Park officials say more than 24 million people have climbed aboard since the ride first opened in 1977.
