The Magnum XL-200 at Cedar Point amusement park/resort is considered by many to be one of the ultimate scream machines on the planet. In 2001, the Magnum XL-200 was voted No. 3 in the 'Best Steel Roller Coaster in the World' category in a poll conducted by Amusement Today, an international publication that covers amusement and water park news and trends. Standing 205 feet tall, this fan favorite provides riders with unparalleled thrills, action-packed hills and tons of 'airtime!' ride.

Since its debut in 1989, Magnum has given more than 26.7 million rides. In 2001, this classic scream machine gave 2,130,694 rides. Guests must be at least 48 inches tall to ride.

A traditional out-and-back 'hyper-coaster,' Magnum's 5,106 feet of red steel tubular track runs through Soak City water park and along the Lake Erie shoreline, giving riders spectacular views to go along with magnificent hills and blazing speeds. In its 11-year history, this steel giant has given more than 24.5 million rides.
