The Mean Streak is one of the tallest and fastest wooden roller coasters in the world. At 161 feet tall and speeds of 65 mph, this wooden wonder is a true white-knuckler with high curves, steep drops and relentless speed. The Mean Streak has generated nearly 4.7 million rides since its 1991 debut at the Sandusky, Ohio, amusement park/resort.
As Cedar Point's 10th scream machine, the Mean Streak enabled the park to break its own record in the 1992 edition of the Guinness Book of Records for having more coasters than anywhere on earth.
