I've heard a rumor that Cedar Point is dismantling the Mean Streak to make room for a new coaster. Has anyone else heard this?

I don't know if you were thinking 2008 or 09, but they will not get a coaster in 08 after getting mavrick.

i haven't herd anything but a floorless would be good mabe if were lucky they will take down Mean Streak and put in an M&B floorless that breaks the record for most inversions

I personally loved Mean Streak two years ago! Yeah, it beat the heck out of you, but it was fast and fun! This year it still beat you up, but it was SLOOOWWW. I would personally like to see them make modifications to the ride if it's possible to make it faster, and for everyone else, a bit smoother. (To give you an idea of my tastes, I personally love Texas Giant at Six Flags over Texas, and it beats the living poop out of you, but it keeps a good speed the whole ride.)
If for some reason they can't make modifications, I would like to see a different well designed woodie go in its place.

I haven't heard anything about Mean Streak being demolished but I would be delighted if it was. I have never ridden it before so i don't have any comparison but it was brutal! I agree that they should at least try and improve on smoothness of the ride, mainly because there aren't too many GREAT wooden coasters left. If they were to demolish it, I think they should put in a shuttle loop or a boomerang coaster.

^I would definatly want Mean Streak over a Boomerang. At least Mean Streak is a original ride.

i think if they get rid of it they should put in a wooden roller coaster with the steepest angle of decent that would be a good addition for the park and make it the longest, i think thats the best move for them.

yea i agree... an out and back wooden coaster, with a hieght of maybe 180ft or taller... with the steepest drop and maybe they could kinda biuld it on or close to the shoreline and go for the longest wooden roller coaster... It would be a great addition to the park without exreamly high running cost like TTD... It would be a taller and faster design like the voyage, which is a great coaster!
