Mean Streak is a wooden roller coaster built by Dinn Corporation at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, United States. It opened in 1991 as the tallest wooden roller coaster in the World, Mean Streak was constructed from 1.7 million board feet (4,000 m³) of treated Southern Yellow Pine.
Although it doesn't currently hold any records, Mean Streak is still one of the tallest, fastest and longest in its class. It is also one of two wooden roller coasters operating at Cedar Point; the other being the Blue Streak. The track is re-tracked almost every year and has its own carpentry staff.With a duration time 2 minutes and 45 seconds, the Mean Streak is the longest ride of any roller coaster in the park. In 2011, Cedar Point celebrated the Mean Streak's 20th anniversary.
After ascending the 161-foot-tall lift hill, Mean Streak drops riders at a 52-degree-angle and over two large elevated curves. An on-ride-photo system takes rider's pictures at the drop after the second large elevated curve. Mean Streak criss-crosses its wooden structure nine times at speeds up to 65 mph (105 km/h). Trim Brakes have been added to the ride's first drop, and it is today considered a rough ride.
