Pepsi Orange Streak (formerly known as Pepsi Ripsaw) is a custom Zierer roller coaster located in Nickelodeon Universe in the Mall of America. It is located in the west side of the park, and debuted with the park in August 1992. The track color is green with cream colored pylons and orange fiberglass trains.

Some of its features include two lift hills, a tunnel through the Log Chute, and three large helices, twisting its way through the park. The Pepsi Orange Streak's station shares space with the Rugrats Reptarmobiles in a blue building with designs similar to the front of many Pepsi bottles and cans. The ride is sponsored by Pepsi-Cola (Mall of America's official soft drink) and Nickelodeon.
