Do You Remember...?

Get ready, because today is the first installment of "Do You Remember...?"!


Do you remember... Avalanche Run?

Avalanche Run was a toboggan roller coaster where guests sat in cars that could swerve freely inside the hemisphere shaped track. Well actually, it's still at the park! Any Cedar Point history buff would probably know that Avalanche Run is actually Disaster Transport! No way?! Well it's true!
