It's just a state of mind

And how has my humor blog been looking the past week? Kind of like this.

And how was Cedar Point looking the rest of that day? Kind of like this:

Underside of the Cedar Creek Mine Ride, because I liked the view this gave of the wheels underneath the train. Those are the things that make it impossible for the thing to jump the track.

Ticket eater of tEror! From an unattended arcade near the back of the park.

And Mean Streak several months into its renovation. One of the return hills shows off where the new track will go in a helical spiral as well as return.

bunny_hugger looks on from as close to Mean Streak/Steel Vengeance (a name not announced back then) as we could get.

More of Mean Streak having been partly disassembled for pieces to become the new roller coaster.

View of the return loop, and the Mean Streak launch station, and the photo booth that I don't believe I ever saw in operation, but which still has the Mean Streak ride sign on it.
