Roller coasters are all about making a grand statement with even grander views. As the first hyper-coaster and first ever coaster to top 200 feet, Magnum XL-200 does exactly that. A Guinness Book of World Records holder for its leading edge height is enough to amaze anybody. But when it debuted in 1989, it was also the fastest and steepest complete-circuit coaster in the world. In fact, in 2004 it was awarded the ACE Roller Coaster Landmark award for its historical importance. While accelerating over hills and through tunnels, riders travel above Cedar Point Shores to the beach before completing its signature “pretzel turnaround”. You’ll be blown away by some unbelievable views of the Lake Erie shoreline before returning back to the Cedar Point skyline. And if it’s a clear day, you might be able to see the coast of Canada on the horizon. Make no mistake, this isn’t just a roller coaster ride, it’s a roller coaster spectacle.
Height Requirement: 48” minimum
