Wilderness Run (formerly Jr. Gemini) is a steel masters roller coaster built by Intamin at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. Built in 1979, it was previously named after the ride that sits across the midway from it, Gemini. In 2014, Cedar Point renovated the Gemini Midway including Wilderness Run. Instead of blue paint, they used brown supports with green track to match the nearby Camp Snoopy children's area. After exiting the 19-foot-tall lift hill, the coaster train goes through a 270-degree turn to the left, followed by a small hill over the beginning of the lift hill. The train then goes through a 270-degree turn to the right which leads to the station. Because the course is so short, riders are given the option to go through it twice. The riders are asked at the end of the first cycle through the track if they want to ride again, and those who don't are let off and those who do have to wait for their restraints to be checked again.[citation needed]

Structure and Colors[edit]

The ride is made of tubular steel with brown steel supports and green track. The queue goes underneath the last bunny hill of the roller-coaster The train is painted orange and yellow with a red stripe.

As Jr. Gemini, the ride had all blue track and supports with a multicolored train with the first car painted yellow, the second car painted red, the third car painted orange, and the fourth car painted purple.
