With a preliminary design by legendary coaster designer John Allen (the rest of the design was completed by Frank Hoover) Blue Streak remains a small, fun coaster packed with airtime and thrills. The oldest standing coaster at Cedar Point, the out and back track of Blue Streak rides along the western coast of the Cedar Point peninsula. A distinctive "cupola" caps the top of the lift hill, as the ride stands as part of the park's history as a favorite seaside resort. The name "Blue Streak" came from a local high school football team.
