SANDUSKY, Ohio (WSYM) - Cedar Point’s newest record-breaking attraction ‘Steel Vengeance’ has been shut down on opening day.

Park Communication Director Tony Clark tells FOX 47 News around 1:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon, a returning train lightly bumped a parked train at the loading station.

Guests were on both trains.

Four people requested a review by the park’s First Aid team and have since returned to the park.

All other guests left the ride and continued their visit.

Steel Vengeance remains closed while the incident is reviewed. No word if the ride will re-open again Sunday.

The attraction holds 10 world records for a steel/wood hybrid coaster including being the fastest, tallest, steepest and longest coaster.

May 5 is opening day for Cedar Point.
