WindSeeker render at Cedar Point

A Cedar Point fan has released a new time-lapse video showing construction of the WindSeeker tower ride at the park, which is due to open on May 14, 2011.

The video, embedded below, shows the 301-feet-tall attraction rising being put together. According to its author, it was created by combining images from the official web cameras pointed at the WindSeeker construction site. Cedar Point hopes to preview the ride at a special charity event on May 13.

Cedar Point is one of a number of Cedar Fair parks due to open a WindSeeker attraction in 2011. The rides, manufactured by Mondial, see guests swinging in circles around 301-feet-tall towers in a vertigo-inducing variation on the classic "Chair-O-Plane" attraction. Riders will reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour but will still have time to take in panoramic views of the parks and beyond.

At Cedar Point, WindSeeker will replace Ocean Motion in the Cedar Point Beach area. The park claims that the new ride will be a tribute to the Sea Swings attraction, which dipped riders into the waters of Lake Erie in the early 1900s.
