Facts:The Red Streaker's unusual layout is because when the ride was moved from White Rose Park, it was built smaller than it was originally.

Dave Pickstone purchased the Red Streaker at auction and began dismantling it in the summer of 1994.  He was not fast enough for Silver Springs Township, though, who had purchased the land for a township park and, unfortunately, was forced to burn most of the structure.  Some of the ride is still in storage in Carlisle, PA.
History:In 1972 the Blue Streak was damaged by Hurricane Agnes.  It remained closed for several years as it was rebuilt entirely in-house.  A new red train from PTC replaced the old blue train and the roller coaster was renamed the Red Streaker.
