On May 8, 64 people will get to ride Cedar Point's newest roller coaster, Rougarou, for the first time. Those slots are open to all as part of an auction through the LeBron James Family Foundation.

The minimum bid is $123. The auction runs through May 3.



Rougarou is a floorless roller coaster that uses the track of the former Mantis, the latter having been a "stand-up" roller coaster that gave more than 22 million rides between 1996 and later 2014.
