America’s Roller Coaster is at it again. After a successful start to the 2016 operating season and a popular unveiling of Valravn, Cedar Point is setting its sights on 2017. Sure, the 2016 summer season is rolling right along, but the park is always looking for ways to make improvements and enhance its guests’ experiences. The back of the park may look quite a bit different in 2017. Cedar Point took to Twitter to announce that Mean Streak will close for good on September 16, 2016. “Mean Streak has, and always will be a significant part of our roller coaster legacy at Cedar Point,” said Jason McClure, Cedar Point Vice President and General Manager. “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.”
What will come next? Will it be demolished to make way for a new roller coaster? Might a company like Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) or Great Coasters International (GCI) come in to do a major overhaul of the coaster? Only time will tell! What are you hoping for? Rework or record-breaking bonfire?
