The Christmas tree is barely down and summer 2022 is on everyone's mind, and if you live in Michigan that will probably include a trip to Cedar Point.

The popular Sandusky, Ohio amusement park has been making quite a few upgrades and changes lately, most recently the removal of the Wicked Twister roller coaster, The visitor favorite 215-foot-tall, 72-mph steel roller coaster, was closed this past September for "future park improvements". Changes like that are usually welcomed by park-goers, but the latest announced change won't have summer guests too happy.
