Who IS Mean Streak Henry?

Saturday, August 8, 2009 11:35 AM

Does anyone else ever see this older gentleman EVERYTIME they go to Cedar Point like I do?! Who is he? A lucky guy that rides roller coasters all day? His shirts usually say "Single Rider" and/or "Mean Streak Henry" and he's usually by himself, although we have seen him with a friend once and maybe a grandson the other time. I think he's pretty awesome and should maybe even be the new mascot. :)

We have a billion page thread on Songle Rider Bob and Single Rider 2. Never heard of Mean Streak Henry, though. Maybe Mr. Skyward?

NO way is Mean Streak Henry Mr Skyward!! Not even close!! I rode Raptor last week with MSH-he was hanging out with some other CP friends I know. I'll admit I had never seen the guy before but he was pretty nice. Obvious coaster tool-mentioned a bunch of different coasters at other parks.

Mr Skyward on the other hand is a true CP icon-I adore him! He never bothers anyone (except he always has to touch me when he sees me!) he is always alone, and you will find him sporting either his Cleveland Browns or his Halloweekends sweatshirt. He's a sweet soul!

It just never feels like a trip to CP unless Mr Skyward is spotted! :)

It's all about getting around the barrels, or over the fences, right leads, no faults, fastest time and looking pretty when done. What's so hard about that?

Skyward was a pretty regular rider over on Dodgems, and he even went on Scrambler once or twice while I was working. Jo, you can't forget about his Power Tower sweatshirt, either! I think I saw him in that most often.

This Mean Streak Henry person is new to me, though. Can't say I have ever heard of or seen him.

Three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40, and a hammer. Duct tape if it moves and it shouldn't, WD-40 if it doesn't move and should, and the hammer as the last resort.

I have seen Mean Streak Henry around the park a lot this year, it kinda creeps me out every ride I'm at he is there. During fan appreciation ERT I rode M. Force with him for about a half hour. He was always on my train and eighter a seat ahead or behind, he was nice and talked a lot about M. Force (big surprise) and that he was going for 20 rides that night :-) Henry can hop out of the train and thru the handicap enterance pretty fast. I think he reached his 20 that night but I was done after 10 straight rides on Magnum back seat and 10 on M. Force.

I first met Henry during coastermania and he's a neat old man. Unlike Chris, he's extremely likable. He calls me Dragster Adam......as it should be.;)

OMG that's right I totally forgot about the PT shirt till you mentioned it! :)
I had never seen or heard of MSH till 2 weeks ago on Raptor--but didn't see him when we were at park last week. You have to give the man credit saying he likes Mean Streak but has anyone actually seen him on that ride?? lol

I have never seen him on the ride. I actually never see him in the back of the park. I've ridden maXair, M. Force and seen him on Raptor and Wicked Twister. I wonder if he actually likes Mean Streak or he just likes the name.

I ran into him at Maverick ride night (also remember seeing him at CM) he is a very nice gentleman who is a local.

I rode Mean Streak with Henry a few times this year. He isn't actually local he lives in New York but is staying here for the season.

i went up this past saturday to ride for 3 hours and to by our season passes. i went to millennium and rode with henry. he was a nice fellow and we rode a second time when the host opened the gate to let us to the house instead of walking back through the enterance. two rides in less than ten minutes, can't complain.

I met him last night.

Seems like a nice guy.


what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.

How can that guy's spine not be severly jacked up? If you are named Mean Streak Henry, you must ride it a lot, and one ride hurts my back. I have a newfound appreciation for this guy...
