Don’t call it a throwback. Blue Streak may be Cedar Point’s oldest and most classic coaster, but it still competes with some of the park’s heavy hitters. It’s one for the ages and has been a family favorite since it opened in 1964, when it reversed a decade long drought of coasters in the park. A gentle wooden coaster that is nestled between two steel powerhouses offers a 1 minute and 30 second ride most recognizable for its classic out and back layout. The 78-foot climb up the first hill takes riders on a thrill packed ride of hills to the front of the park at speeds up to 40 m.p.h. It then takes a 180-degree turnaround before heading back to the station, but not before going over some more hills before coming to a stop. Some roller coaster aficionados may even call it a bucket list coaster. So don’t count this one out, Blue Streak is packed with hills, thrills and history.
Height Requirement: 48” minimum
