Another sure sign of spring took place this week at Cedar Point as the park’s newest family rides, Lake Erie Eagles and Pipe Scream, each completed major milestones.

Construction crews finished attaching all eight carriages to the metal arms on Lake Erie Eagles while just across the midway, Pipe Scream took its inaugural spin along its 302 feet of steel track.

Both rides, along with all of Cedar Point’s 70 other rides and roller coasters, will undergo a series of safety tests, analysis, inspections and licensing prior to giving their first rides of the 2014 season on Opening Day, Saturday, May 10.
