SANDUSKY, OH (WOIO) - Cedar Point is going to share its 2017 plans for one of the world's best amusement parks on Instagram Thursday at 10 a.m.

The announcement about the announcement was made by the Cedar Point's director of communications Tuesday afternoon.

On Aug. 1, Cedar Point announced it will be tearing down the Mean Streak on Sept. 16. Will Thursday's announcement share information about what could replace the wooden coaster?

The wooden coaster has been around since 1991. When it was built, it held the records for tallest lift and longest drop for a wooden roller coaster.

The amusement park has come a long way since it built the Mean Streak, though, building rides like the famous Millennium Force and the Valravn, which opened in May as the tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster in the world.

Riders who want to pay their last respects to the coaster can go during the park's regular hours, which last until Sept. 5, or during the special bonus weekend Sept. 10 and 11. On Sept. 16, the Mean Streak's last day and the opening night of Cedar Point's 20th HalloWeekends, the coaster will be honored with a special memorial ceremony and a procession from FrontierTown to the "Dead Rides Cemetery."

The news brought mixed reactions -- some were happy to say goodbye and others were really upset that it will be gone.
