SANDUSKY, Ohio (WXYZ) — Cedar Point's Top Thrill 2 rollercoaster will be closed for extended period of time due to a mechanical modification.

In a statementon Cedar Point's website, the amusement park did not confirm a re-opening date, and said that updates about the ride can be found on their website.

Once the modification is finished for Top Thrill 2 — a roller coaster that opened this season that takes riders 420 feet in the air and reaches speeds of 120 miles per hour — Cedar Point's maintenance & operations teams and our third-party ride inspection partner, Zamperla, will conduct a review before approving the re-opening of the ride.

"We know our guests are excited to experience this incredible roller coaster, and we share your disappointment that we are not able to operate it this weekend," Cedar Point said in part in the statement. "We will do everything possible to reopen Top Thrill 2 as soon as we are confident we can deliver the ride experience that our guests deserve."
