SANDUSKY, Ohio - Cedar Point's newest roller coaster will debut in spring 2018, a remake of the wooden giant Mean Streak, which is getting a new steel track, a higher first hill and at least three inversions.

I'm really, really excited for RMC Mean Streak. With the pictures I've seen so far, it looks incredible and I think it's going to blow everyone away, similar to how Storm Runner blew me away when it was announced as I didn't know a coaster could do what it did.

From my knowledge, RMC hasn't done an 87° drop before, but I guess it is very possible when you think how Goliath at SFGA has a max descent of 85° at 165 and how this coaster is Speculated to be over 200 ft, So good Prediction Indyguy.°°°°°°

^1000 is 125 over 875 :)

I find it interesting that the guy on the left wanted poster appears to be wearing a (probably steam-punky) mech suit. I'm looking forward to seeing these characters in non-silhouette form. 

How did I miss that one? Geez. LOL. Well I guess we see if thes is a 125 in there instead of 25...

Wonder if the full poster for Chess will appear this week. 

Anyone else here enter the contest to be at the pre-announcement? I'm keeping my fingers crossed but with CP as popular as it is, there are probably hundreds of entries and I don't think I'm even 50th best out of that many. It will be the first time I go to CP in about ten years if I do win tho.

I wanted to enter, but I work for Cedar Fair.

Pros and cons, lol.

 

I hope you win, though!

So, I saw a Facebook post on amusement park forum of someone who had attended the pre-announcement. Said the drop looks near vertical and there will be four inversions with lots of crazy airtime hills. Also, no questions allowed. Take it with a grain of salt.

Oh. my. gosh. This looks amazing! I freaked when I saw that it would be a hyper! Also, thank you Cedar Point (and Cedar Fair) for calling it a hybrid and not a wooden coaster. Finally, this thing is long! Cannot wait to board in 2018! :D

EDIT: POV for your viewing pleasure:

That is actually kind of awe-inspiring.  Cedar Point, obviously, has many fantastic coasters, but for me, personally, it's the first one that makes me want to make a trip to there to ride!

Well, it's time to get up to The Point again next summer...that is one amazing transformation of a coaster that sorely needed it. RMC is just blowing it out of the water with this one! After riding Outlaw Run and Stormchaser, I cannot wait to ride this monster!
