Cedar Point closing Mean Streak

Cedar Point announced on Monday it is closing Mean Streak, which opened in 1991 as the world’s tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster.

The park says more than 26 million guests have experienced the thrill of the wooden coaster over the years.

“Mean Streak has, and always will be a significant part of our roller coaster legacy at Cedar Point,” said Jason McClure, vice president and general manager for Cedar Point in a press release. “But we have our sights set on the future of FrontierTown, and unfortunately, that means Mean Streak has to leave our lineup of world-class attractions.”

Mean Streak will permanently close on Friday night, September 16.

That night, last rites will be given to the coaster, there will be a final riding session from 6-7 p.m., then there will be a procession from Frontier Town to the “Dead Rides Cemetery.”
