Cedar Point started this summer with a bang, opening their new water park at the end of May. And the park intends to go out with a bang as well.

Now, workers from Rocky Mountain Construction intend to build a hybrid coaster, replacing the Mean Streak's wooden tracks with steel. The ride is also expected to be taller, and flip riders upside-down at least three times.
