Well, I wrote a really long trip report about this trip, but when I pushed the "Submit" button, AOL kicked me off and I lost everything. Anyway, I'll recap, in the order I liked the coasters.
Millenium Force: Rode three times in two days, waiting between 45 min and 1 1/2 hrs. I rode middle, near back (at night in the rain-VERY COOL), and very front (scary going up the lift hill). The ride kept improving each time I rode it. I was out of my seat for the first hill every thime! I HAVE A NEW FAVORITE ROLLER COASTER!!!
Raptor: Better than Batman: the Ride, but not quite as unrelenting. I got my land legs back quicker after Raptor than B:TR. The front row was simply marvelous.
Gemini: An amazing ride. It's amazing how much fun the people have racing each other. I was surprised how much airtime it gave.
Mean Streak: It didn't give enough air when it should have, but I liked it. The trims on the hill weren't as bad as I expected.
Magnum XL-200: Too rough for my liking, but the bunny hops at the end were really good.
Wildcat: What a fun little ride!
Cedar Creek Mine Train: Nice sudden drops and quick turns. A nice mine train.
Blue Streak: It gave good airtime and I liked it despite the roughness.
Iron Dragon: The first half is too slow. The second half blew me away.
Mantis: The trim on the first drop ruins the ride, as it seems to plod through the course.
Disaster Transport: Too short, but I like bobsled coasters.
Corkscrew: Way too rough, WAY TOO SHORT. Not good at all.
Power Tower: When we were five minutes from the front, lightning appeared to hit the tower, but it later re-opened.
Demon Drop: A slow loading ride, but it was fun.
Troika: What is this type of ride called? It is my favorite kind of spinning ride.
ALL IN ALL: Cedar Point was very impressive for my first visit,愀渀搀 䤀 爀漀搀攀 愀氀氀 㔀 漀昀 琀栀漀猀攀 爀椀搀攀猀 琀栀攀 昀椀爀猀琀 搀愀礀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀ⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀ 㰀戀爀㸀ⴀ䈀䤀䜀 䔀䐀

I agree with you on Iron Dragon being to slow in the beginning but the end is good.
Mantis' trims actually give you more "air/Hanging time" on the loop so I kind of like it!
Corkscrew is pretty rough for a corkscrew...lol!
201.3 Miles to Cedar Point from Owosso MI.

Glad you had a good time. I do wish people wouldn't bash the Corkscrew. After all, the ride is 25 years old and is not nearly as rough as most Arrow loopers. (Disclaimer, the Corkscrew was my first upside-down coaster, so I may be a little sentimental about it).
