SANDUSKY, Ohio (WANE)  Some time during the summer, visitors to Cedar Point amusement park will be able experience a ride that will catapult them nearly 360 feet into the sky at speeds of up to 62 miles an hour.

The SlingShot will hold two persons at a time and will take those riders to the second highest point in the park, just below the Top Thrill Dragster.  After a brief feeling of weightlessness, riders will descend back towards the ground before being catapulted back up and down until eventually the capsule they are riding in comes to a rest.  SlingShot will be located near the Gemini roller coaster and will be an extra charge amusement ride according to a news release issued by Cedar Point.
