SANDUSKY, OH (WOIO) - This year's HalloWeekends at Cedar Point will kick off with "last rites" and rides given on Mean Streak, a massive wooden roller coaster that will be torn down in September.

The ride will be open from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sept. 16, with a special ceremony and funeral procession to the Dead Rides Cemetery at 7:30 p.m.

All guests who ride Mean Streak on Friday night will also receive a special souvenir and other prizes as the park pays tribute to this wooden rattler.

Sept. 16 marks the beginning of the park's 20th year of HalloWeekends.

Each night when the sun sets during HalloWeekends, the park takes on an entirely sinister feel as fog creeps through the intricate structures of popular rides and coasters. A highlight of the nighttime atmosphere is The HalloWeekends Great Pumpkin Spectacular. The whimsical faces of carved pumpkins burst to life in this special display of more than 1,000 pumpkins, most of them hand-carved and positioned along the Top Thrill Dragster Midway.
