On August 1, 2016 Cedar Point announced that Mean Streak would close forever on Friday, September 16. After 25 years this wooden coaster will be removed to make room for a new unannounced attraction.
At the time of its debut in 1991 Mean Streak was the tallest, fastest wooden coaster in existence. Located on the tip of the historic Cedar Point Peninsula, Mean Streak beckoned guests from all around the park. This wooden forest of hills and thrills featured a stunning 161-foot-tall lift hill, a blazing top speed of 65 miles-per-hour and nearly a mile of wood coaster track.
