Cedar Point's new $21 million roller coaster will not be ready for the park's opening day this Saturday, the amusement park said.

Three sections of the steel track were being replaced, the park said Tuesday. Tests prior to its opening determined that the changes were necessary, the park said.

Cedar Point plans to open the ride by early June.

The coaster called "Maverick" will have a 100-foot first drop and launch riders through a tunnel at speeds of 70 mph. It also will turn them upside down three times.
