I don't think that there are pointless layouts throughout the world. Always fun to see those characteristics! :)

It wouldn't surprise me if they expand into the Soak City parking lot and then make up for it with additional parking in part of the area Mean Streak used to occupy.

Ah redoing Soak City. I'm not surprised to be honest since it's kind of like the bastard child of that peninsula.

Lakeslide Landing - A family splashground of epic proportions! There's 12, kid-sized water slides that line the perimeter of a zero-depth-entry pool, giving kids their own mini water thrills while parents can relax under shade structures and enjoy an oversized lounge and sun deck area.

Fresh-baked flat breads (caprese, buffalo mac & cheese and more)
Farm salad options (crispy chicken BLT, Asian chicken and chicken Caesar)
Pesto-glazed grilled chicken sandwiches

This would be the perfect opportunity to combine admission for both CP and the former Soak City...If they were crazy enough to lose all the added resort revenue that is.

Well no. They'd make more money this way. A lot more. 3 parks are better than one. Also, besides the water park Breakers is getting an extra 6-story tower and Breakers express is getting that already announced expansion. No announcements about the dry park have been made yet, expect SOMETHING to come. Probably not very big, but Mean Streak still has a small chance. Stay tuned for tonight though.
All hail your great Arrow Dynamics overlords.

The general rebranding, awnings, etc should look great.

Yes, I am very certain CP will post cryptic videos like with Mantis regarding Mean Streak's fate. I still seriously doubt it's being demolished.

Hmm...
McClure was coy when asked about the future of Mean Streak, Cedar Point's massive wooden coaster that will close next month.

Roller coaster fans are hoping that instead of being torn down, Mean Streak will be converted into a new ride ΓÇô a so-called hybrid coaster with a wood frame and steel track.

McClure said any announcement of what will replace Mean Streak will come after the ride's last operating day, Friday, Sept. 16, the opening night of HalloWeekends.

"We'll string it out for a while," said McClure. "We like that people are curious."

He added, "The only thing I can tell you right now is that we won't disappoint you with what we do back there."

I think pretty much everyone is expecting an RMC at this point. If McClure truly means that statement "we wont disappoint you", then it pretty much has to be an RMC at some point. Anything less would cause disappointment from that crowd. Right?

Is it bad if I'd prefer them to make T Express on steroids instead?

What will happen to Mean Streak's wood after it closes at Cedar Point?

SANDUSKY, Ohio -- One of Cedar PointΓÇÖs beasts is getting the axe.

But when Mean Streak joins the parkΓÇÖs ΓÇ£dead rides,ΓÇ¥ whatΓÇÖs in store for its towering lumber?

ΓÇ£Everyone has been asking what weΓÇÖre gonna do with the wood,ΓÇ¥ says park spokesperson Tony Clark. ΓÇ£WeΓÇÖre taking it down. WeΓÇÖre not gonna really give it to anybody. WeΓÇÖre not going to sell it. WeΓÇÖre not gonna auction it. ItΓÇÖs gotta go. If that changes and we want to build some special chairs or furniture and sell it in the park, weΓÇÖll let people know, but I donΓÇÖt think thereΓÇÖs big plans for that wood.ΓÇ¥

The coaster, a rickety journey along 5,427 feet of track, features 1.7 million board feet of treated southern yellow pine.

When Cincinnati-area sister park Kings Island demolished its troubled Son of Beast wooden coaster a few years ago, a limited number of track pieces were sold to fans. Cedar Point currently has no plans in place to sell any piece of Mean Streak.

Mean Streak, once the tallest and fastest wooden coaster, will unleash its final screams on Friday, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. -- the same day HalloWeekends opens.

Although Clark wonΓÇÖt even hint at what could fill Mean StreakΓÇÖs footprint, speculation is swirling among thrill seekers that its existing structure will be repurposed to become a wood-steel hybrid coaster built by Rocky Mountain Construction. A similar example would be RMC's Twisted Colossus coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, Calif.

ΓÇ£I cannot tell you anything about whatΓÇÖs happening here,ΓÇ¥ Clark said. ΓÇ£I canΓÇÖt tell you what weΓÇÖre doing specifically with the area. I canΓÇÖt tell you what it will be. I canΓÇÖt tell you when thatΓÇÖs gonna happen because if I did, IΓÇÖd be looking for my replacement here at Cedar Point. I like my job, and IΓÇÖd like to keep it. Everybody will find out at the direct and exact moment that we are ready to spill the beans.ΓÇ¥

To date, more than 26 million people have climbed aboard Mean Streak since it opened in May 1991.

No, no it is not. I really hope Cedar Point doesn't drag this out past the 16th, but it seems like they intend to.

I want to say I have never been so insulted and infuriated with an amusement park before today. Went to go see Mean Streak off, got there around 7:45pm and it was already closed.

Because at 1pm yesterday a tweet went out that it would only be open for one hour. ONE IN THE AFTERNOON ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT TO HAPPEN FIVE HOURS LATER :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:






That's abesolutely not fair! I planned and juggled and took off work early to make it down there for that to find it closed not even two hours after the park opened. That's bulls***.

and then I went to guest services to voice my complaint and at least see who I needed to talk to to get my pin and they said "you should have checked the site and twitter" IT WASNT POSTED UNTIL 1PM THE DAY OF!!!!! That was a a slap in my already insulted face from Superviser Emily at Guest Services. To look me in the face and basically say, "sorry for everything you went through to get here for this event today but you should have done more".

I might not even renew my pass next year. HEATED

When they announced closing they said it would only be open for a couple hours. Originally it would have closed at 8 I believe, and if you only got to the park at 7:45 you probably still wouldn't have ridden it.
