MEAN STREAK TO CLOSE

Cedar Point has announced that this massive wooden coaster will take its last ride in September. The rumor, unconfirmed, is that Mean Streak will undergo a Rocky Mountain Construction makeover.  I hope that this will prove to be the case, as Mean Streak is a prime candidate for the RMC treatment if ever there was one.  Not having ridden it in its prime, I can't comment on how it was when it opened but having ridden it several times within the past five years, I can say that it's colossally boring!  How a coaster with a 155-foot drop could be so lacking in airtime has never ceased to amaze me.  However, as welcome as an RMC makeover would be, from what I see thus far it's equally likely that this colossus will get the axe to make way for a completely new, unrelated attraction.  Video courtesy of Cedar Point.
