It was May of 1991 and people were waiting up to 3 hours to ride what was at the time the largest and fastest wooden roller coaster in the world, Mean Streak. Now that coaster is set to close for good.

The 2 minute and 2 second ride cost $7.5 million dollars to construct and has had a permanent home in the park's Frontiertown.

The last ride on Mean Streak will occur September 16, 2016.
