Magnum, Raptor and Cedar Point nail top honors again in poll

Posted Tuesday, March 28, 2000 12:01 PM | Contributed by Jeff

A Cedar Point press release today said that Magnum XL-200 was named "favorite steel coaster in the world" while Raptor secured the number two position in a survey conducted by the National Amusement Park Historical Association (NAPHA). This is the ninth consecutive year for Magnum at the number one steel spot, while Raptor climbs from third place, surpassing Kennywood's Steel Phantom (which will be dismantled after this year). The survey has been conducted since 1986.

Also, readers of Family Fun magazine have again voted the park "top amusement park in the Midwest for families."

And for my past 20 years I have been living next to the best park in the world and was to scared to go ride coasters. (Until last year) What a tragedy.

Magnum is way overated, as with boring Raptor. Cedar Point has good rides but the theming ABSOLUTELY SUCKS.

Wow, congrats Magnum, and Raptor, too! Those are my favorite coasters in the world, too. ^_^ I'd have voted for them if I had been in the survey, but I guess they didn't even need my votes.
