RAW VIDEO: Meteorologist Jim Geyer test drives The Rougarou at Cedar Point

It’s the newest attraction at Cedar Point and StormTracker 6 meteorologist Jim Geyer, the 6 News designated roller coaster test rider, took it for a spin this morning.

The Rougarou is the first floorless coaster at Cedar Point. According to Cedar Point officials, Rougarou riders will hit speeds of more than 60 mph during the two minute experience.

One of the key attractions is that legs are dangling and feet skimming when the ride drops down 137 feet, taking riders through high-speed twists and four inversions.

If you’re wondering a Rougarou is a mythical swamp beast from the bayous of Louisiana.

The ride opens to the public May 9.
