Mean Streak makeover underway at Cedar Point, no announcement yet

Posted Wednesday, October 26, 2016 8:25 AM | 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've been working on my fitness for some time, and I've lost about 48 lbs in the last year or so. You want to talk cold? I'm always cold. It's 50 degrees outside, and I need an insulated jacket.

Are we still talking about Mean Streak?

Since the coaster isn't opening till 2018 there's plenty of time to talk about it.

I read that at first as climaxbuzz.com.

Now I think Jeff is missing out on a ton of money for not running climaxbuzz.com. The real portal to the thrill.

This seems like a good time to remind people that the park is closed, and wandering in there to photograph what's going on is in fact trespassing. Don't do it.

Soon enough, it'll be too cold for boats to get out there and take photos, either - so enjoy it while you can. :)

You can go to Marblehead with a telephoto lens.

RMC confirms at IAAPA that no new projects will open for 2017!

Use a drone if you plan to get pics of the construction so you are not breaking park rules!

Per the Cedar Point FAQ: "All drones ... Are prohibited at (in) all Cedar Fair parks, including Cedar Point ... Regardless of its point of operation."

Mean Streak isn't reopening next year. Some of you can continue to think it will but it isn't.

From my 20+ years as an enthusiast, I know it's ridiculously silly to believe a park or manufacturer saying they will or won't be doing something. Many tricks and fast-ones have been pulled by the likes of Paula, Jeff Seibert, etc.

Frankly, I don't particularly care or have any inclination when it will open. But I have seen crazier things done than retrofit Mean Streak by the opening day of 2017.

I can tell you now it isn't opening next year. That's not speculation or misdirection.

Sorry, guys. Playing the devils advocate evidently doesn't come across well on threads.

Back to your regularly scheduled conversation about the weather.

Without construction pics, how will people be able to hate the re-done ride before ever riding it? Can't they at least get a new ride name or logo or a leaked layout pic? I think the park owes them something here, don't they? :)

Devil's Advocate only works when there's an arguement to be made ;-).
