A couple have been charged with public indecency for having sex at an Ohio amusement park, authorities have said.
The intimate act on the park's ferris wheel was witnessed by four women, including two juveniles, at Cedar Point on Sunday (14 August).
The witnesses, who were in the gondola under the accused, told police that they saw the man and woman having sexual intercourse on the Giant Wheel.
They told authorities that they could feel their cart shaking and witnessed the couple expose themselves on the ride before they saw 'both the male and female moving back and forth.'
According to a police report obtained by FOX11, the report stated: "The group said that the couple knew that they were watching and started laughing and continued their behaviour."
Shortly after the incident the ride was stopped around 10pm, David Davis and Heather Johnston were confronted by police sergeant and Cedar Point security officials.
The Sandusky Police Department was then called to the scene, according to WBNS.
At first, the couple denied the allegations with Johnston, 32, reportedly telling police that she was wearing shorts under her dress and dropped a cigarette pack.
The Daytona-based woman then claimed Davis, 24, also from Florida, was helping her to pick it back up. However, the two later soon admitted engaging in sexual intercourse.
They were subsequently arrested following their admission and taken to the Erie County Police Department.
They have each been charged with a first-degree misdemeanour because they engaged in their activity in front of minors and appeared at Sandusky Municipal Court on Monday (15 August).
Cedar Point is based in Sandusky, a city on the shores of Lake Erie and 60 miles west of Cleveland, Ohio.
The amusement park boasts 70 rides, including the family-friendly Snake River Expedition, the Steel Vengeance rollercoaster, and a giant ferris wheel, and says it is a place ‘where moments, memories and connections are made’.
The website states: "Cedar Point is more than roller coasters. It’s more than thrill rides. It’s more than the mile-long sandy beach where our rich history began.
"Cedar Point is where moments, memories and connections are made.
"These connections last for generations and are built on tradition – traditions that began more than 150 years ago."
