Mean Streak is going to be replaced with a world record breaking RMC coaster. Here is a photo of the deconstruction from Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/p/BPS8_jXhVYU/


Also the Skycoaster is being moved over to Shoot the Rapids former spot as a temporary replacement.

Personally I fell they should have leveled the entire coaster and built a new woodie with a modern layout. But I'm sure the new steel tracked Mean Streak will be an amazing coaster.

Just found out that Mean Streak is going to have an outward banked camelback airtime hill. A first for an RMC coaster. So far my prediction of RMC Mean Streak being a huge coaster that could easily rival Lighting Rod, is coming true.

There is a lot of coaster to work with so that's an easy prediction. I am interested to see what other tricks they have up their sleeves for the coaster moving forward.

I really have to get to this park. Though a small part of me no mater how great this RMC makeover is will regret never ridding the original Mean Streak.

Its ok. Mean Streak was the worst coaster I have ever ridden. It was so rough that I was agonizing in pain about half way through.

I just read on Screamscape about the rides opening date. Ever since the RMC Mean Streak construction has begun sometime in late 2016, people were speculating that it would be open sometime for the 2017 season. Even Screamscape predicted it was going to be open for the 2017 season.

There was one thing that convinced me that it wasnít going to open until the 2018 season. They didnít ever make an announcement throughout the entire year of 2016. If it really was going to be open for 2017, we would have already gotten an announcement since August. And yet they were still convinced it would be ready by 2017.

It seems only now they are finally admitting it wont be ready til 2018. Even Screamscape now admits this, as I found out just today. Those people who were hoping it would be ready for 2017 need to keep in mind that certain ground breaking projects, takes time and effort to get done right. Its better to wait for something of truly high quality, than wanting sometime as soon as possible.

Interesting info. I haven't been trying to speculate the time frame. just enjoying updates but still wishing they would have demolished the entire coaster and building something a but better at managing the land its on.

Like how it's coming along but don't get the video. 3 images over nearly 3 minutes. Personally if I was going to post a 3 minute video I would post at lest 6 images.

I must say his videos have gotten mindbogglingly better, since his videos use to really suck a few years ago.

Mean Streak is coming along very nicely. Man I cant to see what it looks like when its fully complete. It will easily rival, if not top Millennium Force, Top Thrill Dragster, Maverick, and Valravn.

Very nice. Should be a solid inversion. Looks like a smooth transition through that corner.

Live came is a nice extra. Wish Canobie had been more up front about the sewer rehab. not as spectacular as a coaster but if guests new they were doing so much to upgrade the park I think some people would have a better opinion of the park.
