On April 26, 2013, Blue Streak was damaged when a construction vehicle backed into its turnaround. No major damage occurred, and the ride is expected to be repaired in time for opening day. A picture of the damage can be found here.
The ride was named after "The Blue Streaks", the nickname of the Sandusky High School athletic teams.
The ride hasn't always been pale blue. When Blue Streak opened, it was unpainted.
