ISN'T THIS RIDE THE SAME AS MEAN STREAK?
No! Not at all! Steel Vengeance is an all-new roller coaster experience that uses the same footprint where Mean Streak once stood. Construction crews used part of Mean Streak's structure for the new roller coaster. CLICK HERE to see a timeline from Mean Streak's demise to Steel Vengeance's creation.
WHEN CAN I RIDE?
Cedar Point opens for the 2018 season on Saturday, May 5.
CAN I BRING MY BAG ON THE RIDE?
No loose articles will be permitted on Steel Vengeance, and there are no storage bins in the ride station. That means you must leave your things with a non-rider or purchase the use of a locker near the coaster. You can ride with glasses, but they must have a strap.
HOW MANY TRAINS ARE ON THERE?
Three, 24-passenger trains named after the park's new outlaw characters “Blackjack,” “Digger” and "Chess."
DO THE COASTER TRAINS REALLY HAVE WORKING HEADLIGHTS?
You may have seen commercials promoting Steel Vengeance that show each train with illuminated headlights, but park officials tell WKYC there are no actual headlights on the ride train. Sorry.
WHO BUILT IT?
Steel Vengeance was built by Rocky Mountain Construction, a company known for transforming old wooden roller coasters into a smoother, wood-steel hybrid experience.
IS THERE ANY THEMED MUSIC?
You bet! There's Western-themed music all around the ride.
Want more than your on-ride photo? Unlike any other roller coasters at Cedar Point, Steel Vengeance offers guests the opportunity to purchase video of themselves on the ride. There’s a new Steel Vengeance gift shop, too, just in case you want that shot glass or T-shirt.
