One of my all-time favorite coasters turns 30 today! It seems a little slow and rickety now, but when it opened in 1978 it was the tallest and fastest in the world! I remember one overcast day when Cedar Point wasn’t very busy when my cousin Randy and I were able to ride the Gemini over and over! I think we probably rode it 5 or 6 times in a row, which, at the time, was a HUGE deal!! And, come on… those tight circle turns at the end can’t be beat!! GO BLUE TRAIN!!!

Love that “clack clack clack” sound of the chain taking you up that first hill!! THAT’S what summer sounds like in northern Ohio!
