[2][3] Track layoutWoodstock Express is a steel roller coaster located at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. Built in 1999 by Vekoma, it is a junior roller coaster. The ride is the staple attraction apart of a new area constructed in 1999, which is Camp Snoopy. Woodstock Express is a cloned roller coaster, as the same design appears at other parks. The most well known version of this ride is Flight of the Hippogriff, located at Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida.

Woodstock Express has a 540-degree downward helix and a 270-degree downward helix. Since the ride debuted in 1999, attendance has steadily declined.[1] This is in partially caused by the park restricting seat belts so only ride operators can release them, which causes a longer load/unload time. Unlike Flying Unicorn which has two trains, Woodstock Express only has one. Riders must be taller than 36 inches (910 mm) to ride with an adult and 48 inches (1,200 mm) tall to ride alone.

Woodstock Express is not to be confused with Woodstock's Express, a kiddie coaster found at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
