Mean Streak roller coaster coming down at Cedar Point

Posted at 10:42 AM, Aug 01, 2016

One of Cedar Point's most prominent wooden roller coasters is coming down.

The park announced Monday that it will be dismantling Mean Streak.

When the roller coaster opened in 1991, it was the world's tallest and fastest wooden coaster. Since that day, more than 26 million guests have boarded its trains.

Mean Streak will permanently close Sept. 16.

"Last rites" will be given that night with one final riding session from 6 to 7 p.m. The memorial ceremony will take place at 7:30 p.m.

According to Cedar Point, the vacant land will make more space for FrontierTown. No other information for what will go in its place has been released.
