Take a 1.5 hour tour of a variety of roller coasters, with emphasis on the Top Thrill Dragster and the engineering challenges associated with increasing its operational reliability. After the tour, enjoy the park - it opens at 6 PM!

This paid event is open to INCOSE Members, Friends, and Family (12+ years old), first come, first served. Maximum Attendees: 30

Join your fellow Chapter Members for an exciting behind-the-scenes tour of several Cedar Point roller coasters! We'll hear from two Cedar Point engineers, Eric Lapp and Larry Shivak, as they give us the operational details of popular park rides. They will discuss some of the systems design challenges associated with increasing the operational reliability (i.e., 'up-time') of the Top Thrill Dragster, which faced high downtime during its first few seasons.

After the behind-the-scenes tour, you may choose to enjoy the park during their evening hours, from 6 PM to midnight! (Note the hour between the end of the tour and the park opening)

If you wish to both attend the tour and enjoy the park, please purchase both a tour ticket and a park ticket, below. You'll also need a parking ticket if you plan to enjoy the park.

Our park and parking tickets are at the Group Rate, and include taxes and fees. Revenue from Tour tickets goes to the Cleveland-Northern Ohio chapter, to support regional conference sponsorship and future chapter tutorial(s).

Neither Cedar Point admission tickets nor parking tickets (other than your Eventbrite registration here) are needed for the tour. You will not be charged for parking when arriving for the tour. After the tour concludes, everyone will exit the park, and those in the group that wish to stay and attend the park may do so with their park admission and parking tickets.
