Cedar Point is parting ways with one of their major roller coasters.

The park announced via a YouTube video that Wicked Twister will officially close on Sept. 6. No word yet on what might replace the longstanding coaster.

Wicked Twister welcomed its first passengers at Cedar Point on May 5, 2002. It actually held the record for the world’s tallest and fastest twisting impulse roller coaster.

“Since it opened on May 5, 2002, Wicked Twister has given more than 16 million rides. For the next 31 days, we hope you have a chance to be a part of that ridership history and take one last launch on the world’s first record-breaking, double-impulse, five-time-LIM motor-launching, screeching teal and sunburst yellow steel behemoth,” the park said in a statement.

More information about the closing is forthcoming.
