 Review of Magnum XL-200 @ Cedar Point
0 Rating Posted by: DemonRules on 6/19/2003 9:39:00 PM
Painful as any ride I have ever been on. The leg room is not large enough for someone of my size (63", and over every hill my knees would slam into the seat in front of me. But that doesnt take away the fact that this coaster is great. The drop is very fast, the airtime is plentiful, and although its a little rough, its still a blast to ride. This is a quality coaster, but it has aged a bit.

"Aged" is definitely the operative term here.
Rockstar18 on 7/2/2003 7:32:37 PM said:
Magnum broke tons of records when it was first built. Just because it is "aged" doesnt mean it doesnt provide the same thrill as the newer rides.

I didnt think it was rough it all. Maybe its just me. Course I didnt find Mean Streak to be rough either...

I agree with MovieCoast. People always complain about Magnums roughness, but it wasnt rough to me (except in the third row when the air time is painful).

I found this ride very rough. The first year I went, I found it relatively smooth, but the ejector air hurt my legs. This time, I was just shaken. My back hurt after riding this one, from the brutal pounding it had just recieved.

Magnum is rougher compared to the newer rides like Raptor or MF but it is still a great ride. I dont find this ride painful at all, infact I think Corkscrew is more painful then this but I also dont find Mean Streak rough, I guess it might depend on how tall you are, Demon being 63 as disavantage to me @ 57, I fit into the cars comfortably and I come of the ride feeling fine.

Im 6 so that theory might hold true.
SFGA_fan on 7/5/2003 12:08:17 AM said:
I actually rode this with demon and two of my other friends, my one friend who is smaller wouldnt even go on it again, but my other friend who is bigger loved it, so that theory actually doesnt hold water now that i think about it.
DemonRules on 7/6/2003 11:16:08 AM said:
okay, heres what i meant: i am the kind of person whose hands go up on the lift hill, and dont go back down until the brake run. the hands always gotta be up. so with my long legs wedged into the tiny space, whenever it goes over a bunny hill, my legs would slide forward, and bang into the plexiglass in front on them(me not using my hands to hold myself back in the seat), and they would hit quite hard. my knees were quite beat up when i got off, and that is the cause for my thinking this ride to be rough.
Rockstar18 on 7/7/2003 3:38:37 PM said:
I am the same way Demon, hands dont go down until the brakes kick in. I am able to brace my legs so I dont jerk around much. The ride is great show some love.
DemonRules on 7/7/2003 7:22:43 PM said:
i gave it an 8...i think thats showing it love....i never said i didnt like the ride, i simply said it was painful on my knees.....which it was

DemonRules on 7/8/2003 10:26:38 AM said:
whenever i go back to the park, i will definitely ride it again, its not like i hate the thing.....i might just have to learn how to ride it.
Rockstar18 on 7/10/2003 4:53:55 PM said:
I could show you tricks to enjoy cedar point like no ones buisness.
DemonRules on 7/11/2003 11:43:08 AM said:
dont worry, i enjoyed that park so much it was almost disgusting
Rockstar18 on 7/11/2003 11:52:07 AM said:
well i could make you puke if enjoying a park is disgusting.
DemonRules on 7/12/2003 11:24:41 AM said:
lol, nice.....well, if somehow i can get back there this year...maybe we can hook up
Rockstar18 on 7/12/2003 11:38:41 AM said:
that would kick ass.
DemonRules on 7/13/2003 10:09:29 AM said:
yeah, im working on getting back like in late August.
Rockstar18 on 7/13/2003 5:12:43 PM said:
kool. Magnum is so much fun after a water ride.
DemonRules on 7/14/2003 2:25:36 PM said:
i didnt go on a single water ride at CP....the only water rides i hit up were at soak city.
Rockstar18 on 7/15/2003 8:14:27 PM said:
Snake River Falls is the only decent one in the park
m311ton on 7/15/2003 11:20:12 PM said:
demonrules...just shut up and grab her boobs already
condorman on 7/15/2003 11:28:01 PM said:
Demonrules has a tiny weiner :-) stop this sick fantasy at Cedar Point dont ruin the park for all us real rides enthusiasts with all your sex addict lingo........
DemonRules on 7/15/2003 11:30:54 PM said:
aaaaand those would be my two "friends"......:grabs boobs anyways:
Rockstar18 on 7/15/2003 11:58:47 PM said:
Lol m311ton and condorman. sounds like m311ton wants demon to get laid for him and sounds like condorman is just jealous cause im sexy like that. Condorman, NOTHING can ruin cedar point not even "sex addict lingo" I ave been going for 12 years and even when its 100 degrees or its raining cedar point rocks.
condorman on 7/16/2003 1:16:24 AM said:

Rockstar18 on 7/16/2003 9:48:35 AM said:
i never said I was angry you guys are just typical males. out to embarrass your friends around girls and perverted of corse.
DemonRules on 7/16/2003 10:18:11 AM said:
lol, i think theyre hillarious.....but maybe what they said might be considered "out of line"
Rockstar18 on 7/16/2003 10:35:23 AM said:
it was funny no doubt but perverted. hell im used to it. dont look like me and expect not to get some type of comments.
condorman on 7/16/2003 11:47:57 AM said:
only fat ugly girls say things like that
bb_dg on 7/16/2003 12:15:19 PM said:
off topic stuff should stay out of the reviews...
DemonRules on 7/16/2003 1:23:15 PM said:
id like to stay on topic...but good god condorman (i love the magnum....but you gotta admit, its rough)
Rockstar18 on 7/16/2003 1:47:05 PM said:
its is rough but its old as hell. take that into cosideration.
DemonRules on 7/16/2003 3:21:57 PM said:
its only like 14 years old....there are much older rides that are nowhere near as rough
Rockstar18 on 7/19/2003 12:07:03 PM said:
yes and there are newer rides that are even more rough. Mean Streak for example. Built in 91 its only 12-13 years old depending on when it was built in 91.
DemonRules on 7/21/2003 5:23:07 PM said:
yeah, so that really isnt that old....and mean streak is just brutal, thats not a fair example
MagnumMan on 7/21/2003 6:11:48 PM said:
Mean Streak wasnt brutal to me. Nowhere near Texas Giant. Now THATS A KILLER!
DemonRules on 7/21/2003 6:21:10 PM said:
with the severity of the beating i got on that ride....i honestly dont know how i avoided kidney failure
SFGA_fan on 7/21/2003 6:21:55 PM said:
No, Mean streak is a heck of alot worse than the Texas Giant. And atleast the Texas Giant doesnt have trim brakes on the first drop.
DemonRules on 7/21/2003 6:23:38 PM said:
yeah...i was talking about mean streak
Rockstar18 on 7/21/2003 6:36:09 PM said:
well im saying...look at the mean streak...its only a little younger than the magnum (built in 89) and its brutal...magnum is older its gonna be painful but there are rides older than magnum that are smoother...example Gemini.
DemonRules on 7/21/2003 6:44:29 PM said:
gemini is my sentimental favorite ride at cedar point....:thumbs way up:
Rockstar18 on 7/22/2003 5:30:28 PM said:
yep, gemini rocks!
DemonRules on 7/22/2003 6:36:14 PM said:
gemini is the hidden gem of that park
tacoking on 7/22/2003 7:00:23 PM said:
I didnt find magnum rough, but then, im not 63. I really enjoyed, great airtime.
Rockstar18 on 7/22/2003 7:09:49 PM said:
me to taco
DemonRules on 7/23/2003 8:20:29 PM said:
magnum was still very enjoyable....just rough on the knees
SFGA_fan on 7/23/2003 11:19:00 PM said:
Magnum was rough on my body, it didnt hurt my knees. If I have back problems in a few years, Im blaming them on Magnum. I mean the ride would be fun if it felt like all the pieces of the track were there.
DemonRules on 7/24/2003 12:00:30 AM said:
yeah, for some reason i managed to go pain free with my back...but the knees were beat up pretty good....and i almost got whiplash at the bottom of the drop
tacoking on 7/24/2003 11:26:54 AM said:
i managed to go pain free period.
DemonRules on 7/24/2003 1:21:31 PM said:
thats impressive
Rockstar18 on 7/24/2003 4:09:03 PM said:
i never get like any pain from this ride...my friend hurt her back but she is taller and bigger than me so maybe thats why.
DemonRules on 7/24/2003 6:09:45 PM said:
yes, i think height has alot to do with it
SFGA_fan on 7/24/2003 10:49:11 PM said:
no, cuz mike hurt his back worse than me and hes is short.
Rockstar18 on 7/26/2003 3:10:27 PM said:
well it might depend on weight to some extent...my friend is alot bigger then me and she got hurt...
3r1c on 7/26/2003 6:39:48 PM said:
Actually Im pretty sure Texas Giant has a trim on the first drop.
SFGA_fan on 7/27/2003 6:37:00 PM said:
All I know is that the Texas giant sucked.
Danny on 7/28/2003 1:25:36 PM said:
How? Was it as bad as Mean Streak?
SFGA_fan on 7/28/2003 2:18:07 PM said:
It wasnt as bad, but that just attests to how bad mean streak is.
MagnumMan on 8/4/2003 2:23:06 PM said:
Well, SFGA. I didnt get bruises on Mean Streak or a headache either. Texas Giant does both. I actually thought it was pretty smooth compared to The Beast, which beats both of them out. PKI needs to do some serious smoothing out. They are letting that jem go to the birds. And BTW: Texas Giant is far better than MS. At least you can get off of it, talking about some of the ride. Mean Streak supplies ZERO. You dont even hear people scream.
