About Mean Streak
Mean Streak isn't just called "mean" for a reason.
Mean Streak is one of two wooden roller coasters standing at Cedar Point, the other being the smaller Blue Streak. Mean Streak was drawn up by Curtis Summers, and manufactured by the disreputable and now defunct Dinn Corporation. The ride will take through 5,427 feet of track, and features a 161 foot lift hill with a 155 foot drop. Riders reach a speed on 65 miles per hour on Mean Streak. The roller coaster was constructed with 1.7 million board feet of Southern Yellow Pine.
Although trim breaks were added the first drop, Mean Streak is still very infamous for a rough ride. The least rough seat on a train is the front car.
When it opened in 1991, Mean Streak held records for the tallest, fastest and longest wooden roller coaster in the world.
On September 21, 2010, a portion of Mean Streak's second hill caught fire while the park was closed. Luckily, the fire was contained before major damage was done. In all, about a five foot section of track was ruined, and had to be reconstructed. The ride was closed for the remaining HalloWeekends, and the park had actually planned to shut the ride down for the year for maintenance, anyway.
Mean Streak is located in the very rear end of the park, behind the Frontiertown station of the Cedar Point and Lake Erie Railroad.
