New Cedar Point coaster closes after train incident

SANDUSKY, Ohio (WANE) - Cedar Point's new record-setting roller coaster did not have a good debut Saturday.

Steel Vengeance was closed in the afternoon after a returning train bumped a park train at the passenger loading area, according to Cleveland CBS affiliate WOIO. 

Saturday was opening day for the amusement park's 2018 season. 

Cedar Point officials said four people were checked at the park's First Aid station but they were able to return to the park. 

The coaster is closed and it's unclear when it will reopen. 

Steel Vengeance holds 10 world records, including tallest, fastest, and longest for a hybrid roller coaster. It's known as a "hyper-hybrid" because it contains a steel track placed along a wood structure.

Steel Vengeance climbs 205 feet and also holds the record for longest airtime.
