Ocean Motion Swinging Ship Thrill Ride at Cedar Point

Park: Closed Waterpark: Closed View Hours
Ocean Motion
Soar the high seas.

Bring your sea legs…and your wings while you’re at it. Because where most ships sail, this one flies 65 feet into the air. Grab a first mate and board this maritime ship at port just inside the front gate. You won’t find a swaying ship like this on the waves of Lake Erie. As it rocks into its own wave of energy, you’re left gazing at the ground and staring at the sky in equal measure.  No other seafaring journey compares to the lurch and lean of this magnificent voyage. And only one ship could handle such a treacherous passage between the sea and the sky. No matter the seat waves and air will be caught from stem to stern. Let’s hope that you, the sailor, can manage the insane thrills that can only be found on Ocean Motion. Now do you know the ropes enough to take charge of the only voyage meant to be high and dry?

Height Requirement: 48" tall to ride alone OR 39" tall and accompanied by a supervising companion.
