Blue Streak is a wooden out and back roller coaster located at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, USA. The ride is the oldest operating roller coaster at the park, opened in 1964.

History[edit | edit source]

Blue Streak opened on May 23, 1964. At first, it was unpainted. By 1967, it had received its current blue paint.[1]

On April 26, 2013, Blue Streak was damaged when a construction vehicle backed into its turnaround. No major damage occurred and repairs were carried out quickly.

During 2018's Halloweekend's event, Blue Streak was named "Boo Streak". The signage and station music was changed to reflect this.[1]

Name[edit | edit source]

The ride was named after "The Blue Streaks", the nickname of the Sandusky High School athletic teams.
