SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - Ohio’s Cedar Point amusement park says it’s shutting down what was once the world’s tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster after 25 years.

Mean Streak will permanently close on September 16 in order to make room for future development of the FrontierTown section of the park. A memorial ceremony for the coaster will be held that evening.

Cedar Point says more than 26 million people have ridden the 161-foot high ride since it opened in 1991.
