This year’s lineup of new coasters isn’t that impressive, with the best new ride for 2017 being a small GCI coaster. Thankfully, 2018 is already promising to make up for it, with lots of early construction taking place and some parks even making their announcements.
Cedar Point fans rejoiced when the park announced that Mean Streak would be closing for future plans. After all, the rumors all pointed to one possible outcome: A steel transformation from Rocky Mountain Construction.
Over the past few days, construction crews have been hard at work on the now-closed Mean Streak.
Kings Dominion disappointed hundreds of fans last month when, after teasing an RMC Hurler all summer, they announced a…Planet Snoopy expansion. Likewise, Cedar Point fans gathered at the Point for Mean Streak’s funeral last week, hoping for an RMC announcement, but found…a coaster about to be torn down? While it might seem like the parks are denying their rumored new rides, they’ve been subtly dropping hints that all but confirm their involvement with Rocky Mountain Construction. Let’s check them out.
Remember all those rumors pointing towards Mean Streak getting the RMC treatment? Turns out, they’re likely all true.
Boasting 17 roller coasters, Cedar Point is widely recognized as the “Roller Coaster Capital of the World.” Thrill seekers flock to rides like Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster, but some of the park’s coasters have been lacking in attention due to their painful trains or layouts. Lately, it seems Cedar Point has been dedicated to renovating these rides. Just last year, the park transformed their neglected stand-up coaster into an intense floorless coaster. Now, it would appear that their attention has turned to an even meaner coaster.
