Well, this is a story I didn’t expect to be writing today. A 32-year-old couple is being accused of having sex on a ferris wheel at Cedar Point ferris in front of children, no less. Other people on the ferris wheel told police they could hear the couple laughing and feel the cart shaking during the incident.

The alleged sex-on-a-ferris-wheel activity took place after 8:30 p.m. Sunday (Aug. 14) on the Giant Wheel at Cedar Point, according to NBC affiliate WKYC.

David Davis, 32, of Florida, and Heather Johnston, 32, of Ohio, are being accused of having sex inside the cart on the Giant Wheel in front of two women and two girls. The four witnesses even state they were clearly able to see the couple’s private areas and feel the cart shaking, police state. The witnesses also said that Davis and Johnston knew they were being watched but kept having sex and laughing.

At first, the two denied having sex on the ferris wheel and said Johnston was picking up a pack of cigarettes. But after they found out that two of the witnesses were minors, they confessed. Davis and Johnston are being held at the Erie County Jail and charged with public indecency. Both could get up to 180 days in jail.

10 Cedar Point Rides We Really Miss

  • Top Thrill Dragster

    Last August, a Cedar Point guest was seriously injured at the park. As she was waiting in line for the Top Thrill Dragster, the woman was hit by a flying part off the ride and subsequently injured. The ride won’t be back for 2022, but no word on if it will be back after that.

  • Mantis

    Cedar Point converted the Mantis into a floorless roller coaster named Rougarou in 2015, the latter of which is still there. But, some people miss the Mantis!

  • Antique Cars

    Just this season, Cedar Point removed Antique Cars, a drive-it-yourself ride through Frontier Town, in order to create enough space for a new restaurant.

  • Wicked Twister

    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. It closed last year!

  • Demon Drop

    This was a scary one! Watch video below.

  • White Water Landing

    White Water Landing closed back in 2005.

  • WildCat

    This was a tipsy turvy one! See footage below.

  • Space Spiral

    I don’t remember this one at all. But check out footage below!

  • Mean Streak

    This coaster was all the rage when I was a kid.

  • Disaster Transport

    This was a wild indoor coaster- very unique!
