Cedar Point visitors could see extended wait times for Steel Vengeance, the park's newest ride.

The ride thrill-seekers have been anticipating all year was shut down on the park's opening day after a train car bumped another on May 5. 

Steel Vengeance was put back in service later that night.

Park officials said on Thursday the ride will undergo maintenance and will operate with a single train.

Some visitors said wait times for the new ride have been as long as three to five hours.

One person waited nearly 10 hours for the ride on opening day and was still unable to ride it. 

Officials are considering using a boarding pass that gives riders a time to return to the line due to the wait time.

"Because wait times for Steel Vengeance will be longer than normal, and to permit as many guests to ride as possible, we may institute a timed 'boarding pass' that gives you a time to return to get into the regular line. Note that this is not for immediate access – it only gives you a time to enter the line," a Cedar point spokesperson said.

Cedar Point officials said they will provide updates about the boarding passes here.
