According to a press release issued by Cedar Fair, NAPHA has named Cedar Point the "best park in the world" according to their 2000 survey. They also named Magnum #1 for the tenth year in a row, with Millennium Force at #2 and Raptor at #4.

It just goes to show that Cedar Point's coasters are superior and can stand the test of time. Magnum doesn't suprise me as being #1. I think Mil Force is the best caoster I have been on, but Magnum is still scarier to me. I think it has to do with the slow climb, where as with Mil. Force's elevator cable, you're up the hill in roughly 20 seconds, at a 45 degree angle. So you can't see much going up. But both coasters are the best and have set examples for other parks to copy.

I've been on a lot of inverted coasters, and Raptor is the best!

I would agree with Magnum's no.1 rating if it didn't so hurt so bad going through the tunnels, but as such it does so I will have to disagree.

That's why I travel there every year. Overall they have the highest quality of coasters. I find it hilarious that Magnum beat out Millennium Force. It's just a better design, layout and location. Go Maggie!


BTW, I just hate it when they release these awards without giving you the complete list! Where do I find it? *** This post was edited by DWeaver on 3/23/2001. ***

And people wonder why everyone is on the Point bandwagon. Of course, great job again.

I wouldn't be surprised if in the next couple of years MF beats Maggie. MF is the highest rated rookie coaster so I think that with a little more nostalgia associated with it that it will pass her little sister.

"Maggie" as you CP fans call it, is highly overrated.

Is the best selling music single of the year, the best single of the year? I don't think so! Get the point (excuse the pun)!?

Go Cedar Point! I am outraged that Raptor is #4. Is this list based off of popularity, or a survey of NAPHA people? I just feel that there are better inverteds than Raptor out there. It is so amazing that CP can take the #1 and 2 spots in coasters, awesome.

I am shocked that NAPHA is still brainless enough to vote CP and Magnum as the best of the park and coaster world. I though professionals were supposed to know what they were doing? If horrible shows, mostly mediocre coasters, food, and service, and poor to no theming is what is considered the best, I wonder where the high standards people had are going to? A park should be excellent all around, not just record breaking, most, etc. BGW, IOA, Knobels, HW, KW: keep it up in being the "best". :)

Just voicing my opinion. Don't attack! ;)
