The Cedar Point Gemini coaster has a deceiving nature when first seen. Although the wood structure gives the ride the appearance of a classic twisted woody, the track structure is actually the same steel tubular design used in other steel coasters. The wooden structure gives the ride a unique characteristic smoothness as it bends and gives in response to the forces of traversing trains.

The Gemini is a racing coaster with a figure-8 layout. Trains are close enough to passengers to reach across and touch the other train at several locations during the ride.

Gemini is traditionally Dexter's most disappointing ride at Cedar Point, in fact the only coaster in the park that he does not consider first rate. Even so, several nighttime rides under the right conditions prove that this ride can provide some exciting thrills. Despite Dexter's opinion, Gemini is one a park favorite among guests and often boasts a large ridership each season.
