Not the dino! :O
Nice to see some progress.
I'm probably TPR's biggest fan of Premier Rides.
I'm Batman.
I rode Skyrush before it was cool.
Check out my latest theme park adventure!

A great find and I thought I'd share.

Few notes
-Those people wound't NOT have the same thoughts about the ride now
-That line was ENORMOUS!
-The ride is just as exciting as the developers interview ;)

-Cp came to Dinn asking for the highest "wood" coaster.
-Designing started during Oct/Nov.
-Construction started during August.
-Max +G's are 2.7 - 2.8

I love donkeys more than me.

One thing Mean Streak has going for it is that it is IMO very beautiful looking. It would be more beautiful with bright red RMC Iron Horse track on it. Hopefully Cedar Point reconsiders and lets RMC get their hands on it!

Yummy! I just ate donkey!

I'm holding out hope for 2014/15 on this. I want them to realize the way they're currently re-tracking it is only making the ride boring, so I really want them to consider RMC. Please, Cedar Point!

This year was the first year that I've had Mean Streak ride with no trim on the lift hill and pretty much throughout and it was actually really good speed wise. That combined with a ride weaving through and around its majestic structure almost makes up for a lack of anything substantial in its elements. It didn't seem that rough, but them we rode near the front ;)

Why do I still have a donkey title???

"When we built Magnum back in 1989 the big question was what will Cedar Point do next? How will they out-due themselves? Well I'm hear to tell you, this year we introduced Mean Streak".
