day 03 - a rollercoaster you could ride over and over again
Magnum XL 200- Cedar Point/Arrow Dynamics/ 1989 (Roller Coaster Database)
This coaster ushered in a revolution; before the coaster wars were about inversions. Magnum showed a new way forward. Higher, fastest, smoother versions of classic out and back wood coasters. Critics doubted the success of the coaster, but people were blown away; it dominated the top coaster charts for years. It is still one of the most picturesque coasters; racing along the beaches of Lake Erie, it’s a ride you ride over and over again.
First Ridden: July 2008
