Camels at Ohio’s Cedar Point amusement park escape: video

Two camels were seen on video making a spectacular escape at a rollercoaster park on Tuesday, escaping their enclosure and roaming free.

The incident happened at Cedar Point, an amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, on June 11. Footage of the incident shows the camel trotting down the park’s sidewalks.

“That guy was gonna die,” an adult man can be heard saying off-camera.

“Here comes the camel!” one child laughed.

Participant Justin Garcia told Storyful he noticed the large animals after getting off the ride.
