Magnum XL-200 is one of the best coasters at Cedar Point. It may be old, but it's still a good ride!

Okay remember my review about Millennium Force? Well... that was for the middle row. Just did front row on both XL-200 and Force and WOW! What a difference. However, for our central passengers, Magnum is the way to go. This entire critique is not solely based on comparisons, but in ways this 205 foot hypercoaster is more unnerving than its 310-foot successor and here is why: On Force, when ascending, it is a brisker ascend (thanks to the cable-lift). With Magnum, you can feel every second as you go up the lift hill. Not only that but the tunnels are much more expansive, leaving you in pitch darkness for an extra few seconds. Okay, comparisons are over. XL is overlooked for not being the tallest, nor the fastest, nor the newest coaster of the park. However, the first drop still offers a long, slow descend, tons of hills, and some pretzel-like wrap-around mid-way into the ride (which by the way, I find underrated but I also said Millie was overrated). As far as smoothness goes; the lap bar can grow to be irksome with its later drops (boy that thing is taut!), but the ride is smooth none the less. Only complaints are the first drop just does not do it for me (airtime that is); however I felt several pops of air toward the rest of the ride, and I still think the layout is pretty good. Middle row is actually not intimidating, but front (surprisingly)... kind of is. It feels longer to drop (and having no real sides at the end of your train really does not help prevent this feeling). But all in all, a solid ride.

Honestly, it was painful. And loud during the tunnels. I got off it uncomfortable and wondering how in the world it got its reputation. I'm not saying to skip it, because you should at least ride it for yourself before complaining about it.

THIS RIDE SUCKS. It killed my legs, and i didnt find it thrilling at all. It was bumpy and the restraints are awful.

I hate this ride. After a B&M hyper, the airtime is very poor. The tunnels were crazy loud, the ride hurt my head and my legs, and I would not ride it again for less than $100.

This one is food but made me a little sick when we went through the tunnles. Definetly go at night. The line is very short but is still very fun. Every drop makes my stomache come out of mouth. This is a for sure fide but not really my cup of tea even tho i did enjoy it : >

My favorite ride. The liftime is super long but worth it if the line is short.

An instant classic! The lift hill is horribly slow, though. (There are 39 lamps and 6 telephones on the lift hill!) It can be a bit rough at times, espically if you're small. The air time is wonderful, though. Don't just pass it by-- make sure you visit! Lines are often short, especially after a rain. You can often hop on Magnum twice or 3 times in a row before significant lines build up.
