NAPHA names Cedar Point number one again with three top-five coasters

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!
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?

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.
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". :)
