Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Cedar Point's Mean Streak roller coaster, which closed last month, is in the midst of a dramatic makeover that coaster fans say could make it one of the best rides in the park. Steel track appears near the ride, along with Rocky Mountain Construction vehicles.

I was thinking of the "They're coming" teaser. Could they be referring to they who are coming on opening day? Nahh...

Maybe they refers to 3 new (well, converted oldies) 2018 RMC coasters coming to Cedar Fair parks? Nahhh...

Or my favorite, Mean Streak will not only duel, there will be 3 tracks. 3 different experiences like the 3 towers going in at Hersheypark. Probably not, but that'd be cool!

I've heard there are new pictures coming out every day, but other than that twitter account or screamscape, I can't find em.

I think the simplest explanation is that they are referring to the name of the attraction-they-do-not-speak-of.

Name: Stampede
Height: 215ft
Drop: 205ft
4 airtime hills over 100ft
Will have a top hat stall element, acts as MCBR.
Will have a loop going around chain lift.
Speed: 74mph
Drop angle: 72
Inversions: unknown

Release date: October 2017


Ahh, I'm going to have to go ahead and ask you to come in on Sunday, too...

It's not opening in October.

It's also not opening in May. Of either 2016 or 2017. But since Sprig is too afraid to show his/her face around here, I'm guessing I'll just have to settle for pointing out how incorrect sprig was and how right I was.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Dude, really? You're taking attendance to validate your rightness?
