An American classic! The Blue Streak roller coaster at Cedar Point has withstood the test of time for more than 36 years. A traditional out-and-back coaster with lots of 'airtime,' the Blue Streak is a 'must-ride' for any hard-core thrill-seeker. Standing a modest 78 feet tall, with its signature black cupola and light blue wooden structure, this vintage scream machine has given more than 49.8 million rides since 1964.
