The amusement park Cedar Point, Sandusky, Ohio, has announced plans to remove the Wildcat, one of the amusement park’s oldest roller coasters.

The company says it plans to expand its new Celebration Plaza and is removing the roller coaster to meet its future needs.

In an announcement, Cedar Point says the Wildcat was coming to the end of its useful life; the coaster had declining ridership and growing  maintenance costs.

The ride is expected to be removed from the park before opening day, Saturday, May 12, and shipped to a yet-to-be-determined scrap yard.
