Jeff, feel free to remove this if it's not appropriate. But every so often I run across something that I feel people need to read. This was posted to another forum by a guy named Mike. It's puts what has been going on here to absolute shame.
It seems a lot of people here are very defensive about Six Flags Magic Mountain and Cedar Point. Maybe looking at it from this perspective will help a little. You have to look at both parks from a perspective of never have been to either before. One of my favorite things to do when I go to Magic Mountain (I live about 8 hours waway in Reno, Nv) is to take someone or a couple of people who has never been there before. Driving up the mountain parkway, I love to watch their mouths drop when they see the Viper for the first time, and then notice the 400 foot tower of Superman, and then the bright gleaming orange Goliath. I recently took my friend Angela and her husband Jeff, and they had never been there before. To them, it was so unbelievable that so many different types of coasters were in one park. And do you think they noticed that Viper had it's trim brakes on full force, or that the Collossus needed a paint job? No. They just enjoyed the beautiful park, and the fun rides. We could all learn something from this: If we go to a park with no expectations, then we won't be let down. The next time I went to Magic Mountain after I took them, I let go of my expectations and you know what? I had fun!
Now, I have never been to Cedar Point before, but I've heard good things and bad things. But when I go I am not going to have any expectations. I will just have fun. Remember, a theme park is not only about running like robots from ride to ride to see if it's any better or worse than the last time you rode it, or if it needs a paint job. It is about being with friends, having fun, and enjoying a beautiful sunny day at a theme park. When I went with Angela and Jeff to Magic Mountain, that day Viper was only爀甀渀渀椀渀最 漀渀攀 琀爀愀椀渀Ⰰ 匀甀瀀攀爀洀愀渀 眀愀猀 栀愀瘀椀渀最 琀攀挀栀渀椀挀愀氀 搀椀昀昀椀甀氀琀椀攀猀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 椀琀 眀愀猀 愀 猀眀攀氀琀攀爀椀渀最 栀漀琀 搀愀礀⸀ 䈀甀琀 椀琀 搀漀攀猀渀✀ 洀愀琀琀攀爀 戀攀挀愀甀猀攀 眀攀 愀氀氀 猀琀椀氀氀 栀愀搀 昀甀渀 愀渀搀 洀愀搀攀 琀栀攀 戀攀猀琀 漀昀 椀琀⸀ 䄀渀搀 眀攀 攀瘀攀渀琀甀愀氀氀礀 眀攀渀琀 漀渀 嘀椀瀀攀爀 愀渀搀 匀甀瀀攀爀洀愀渀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 琀栀攀礀 眀攀爀攀 椀洀瀀爀攀猀猀攀搀 戀礀 戀漀琀栀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀匀漀 琀栀攀 渀攀砀琀 琀椀洀攀 礀漀甀 最漀 琀漀 攀椀琀栀攀爀 瀀愀爀欀Ⰰ 樀甀猀琀 爀攀洀攀洀戀攀爀 琀漀 琀愀欀攀 琀栀攀 攀砀瀀攀爀椀攀渀挀攀 椀渀 椀琀✀猀 漀眀渀 攀渀琀椀爀攀琀礀Ⰰ 愀渀搀 搀漀渀✀琀 挀漀洀瀀愀爀攀 椀琀 琀漀 漀琀栀攀爀 攀砀瀀攀爀椀攀渀挀攀猀 愀琀 琀栀攀洀攀 瀀愀爀欀猀Ⰰ 最漀漀搀 漀爀 戀愀搀⸀ 䔀愀挀栀 瀀愀爀欀 栀愀猀 椀琀✀猀 漀眀渀 最漀漀搀 瀀漀椀渀琀猀 愀渀搀 戀愀搀 瀀漀椀渀琀猀Ⰰ 䤀✀洀 猀甀爀攀⸀ 䨀甀猀琀 攀渀樀漀礀 礀漀甀爀猀攀氀昀⸀ 吀栀攀爀攀⸀ 䐀漀攀猀 琀栀愀琀 洀愀欀攀 猀攀渀猀攀㼀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀ⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀ 㰀戀爀㸀䠀愀瘀攀 礀漀甀 攀瘀攀爀 最漀琀琀攀渀 琀栀攀 昀攀攀氀椀渀最 琀栀愀琀 礀漀甀✀瘀攀 戀攀攀渀 栀攀爀攀 戀攀昀漀爀攀㼀 匀椀砀 䘀氀愀最猀 䴀愀最椀挀 䴀漀甀渀琀愀椀渀 ㈀ ⸀⸀⸀

I don't think anyone could have said it better. I've never been to either park, and when I do get to go, I'm going to have fun not critique the parks.
What is life without ups and downs!?!?

And I for one would like to see the forum clear out of these stupid arguements about these two parks. Just ride the rides, tell us how much fun they are or not and stop whinning about who is coaster capital and who isn't. WHO CARES!!!!!!!?????? It's about fun not who can outdo the other. Just enjoy the rides and stop worrying about who's getting what. These people making an issue over this coaster arms race have too much time on their hands.

I grow tired of these arguments as well. Rest assured, they will likely begin to disappear. ;)

Stop your bellyaching and just ride. When I go to Cedar point in 2001, I will ride MF for the first time. Hopfully it will be on opening day. I will try to make it to sfmm in 2002 for the event. When I go i will just ride the rides

I posted this about 2 days ago and it got closed.
