CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns may be on their summer break, but the 2019 rookie class is getting acclimated to the sights around Northeast Ohio.

On Wednesday, the journey continued for the newest Browns players with a “field trip” to “The Roller Coaster Capital of the World,” Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.

The rookies rode several of the record-setting roller coasters that has made the amusement park a popular tourist destination throughout every summer, including The Millennium Force and Valravn, and members of the Browns’ front-office staff were along for the ride, metaphorically speaking.

The Browns documented the experience with short videos shared to their official Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat accounts showing players excitedly awaiting the start of the rides and taking off on their journeys around the tracks.

Opened in 1870, Cedar Point boasts 72 attractions, including 17 roller coasters and two water rides, which helps to draw more than 3.5 million visitors per season. Cedar Point’s season opens in May and concludes with HalloWeekends in October.

Cedar Point has six roller coasters of at least 200 feet in height, including Magnum XL-200, the 310-foot Millennium Force, the 420-foot Top Thrill Dragster, Wicked Twister, Valravn and the record-setting Steel Vengeance.

Steel Vengeance was formerly known as the Mean Streak, but a two-year makeover resulted in 10 world records when the hybrid coaster debuted in 2018. Steel Vengeance was the tallest (205 feet), fastest (74 miles per hour), steepest dropping (90 degrees), longest dropping (200 feet) and longest (5,740 feet) hybrid coaster in the world.

Additionally, Steel Vengeance had the most inversions, the fastest air time hill and most air time on a hybrid roller coaster when it debuted in 2018.
