October 2016 update
This weekend I had a chance to visit Cedar Point and check things out. The park was very busy this weekend and most rides had a long line. It was Columbus Day weekend so the park had extended hours, but it was still a fun weekend.
Crews are painting Ripcord so that it will be ready to begin its new life!
Challenge Park began its life at Cedar Point in 1961 as Cedar Classic Miniature Golf. It was located on the west side of Kiddy Kingdom where the 4x4's are now located. I was moved in 1967 to where Planet Snoopy now is located. In 1992, the attraction was redesigned and relocated to Challenge Park where it was renamed Challenge Golf.
Demolition has began on the building that was most currently home to Cinnabon and Auntie Ann's. Over the years this building was used as Subway, an arcade and a cafe style restaurant.
Inside the Park work is differently happening to Mean Streak, the parks 25 year old wooden roller coaster that got its Axe September 16, 2016.
In certain areas, the track has been removed from the ride.
Due to the ride being at the back of the park, and being a twister coaster, it is difficult to get pictures of the ride.
Another surprisingly fun thing i got to do is watch Spooky Shenanigans.
It was a great weekend at Cedar Point!
