Roller coasters have long been separated into two types: wooden and steel. Wooden coasters often have rougher rides and aren’t typically racecar-fast. Steel coasters offer the twists, flips and sheer speed many thrill seekers live for. On this week’s State of the Arts we head to Cedar Point in Sandusky to ride Steel Vengeance, a new coaster that offers the best of both worlds.

The former home of Shamu, the Big Dipper and Hurricane Harbor will fall silent on Labor Day, as the last remnants of what was once Sea World and Geauga Lake close forever.

Cedar Fair – which owns the 650 acres where both parks once stood -- announced Friday that it’s shuttering the remaining park, now called Wildwater Kingdom.
