The Times has a nice "interactive" (you can watch videos of the rides) piece on Fury, Millennium Force, Intimidator and Leviathan. Currently on the home page.

Awesome.
Finally, an article on roller coasters where I didn't have to roll my eyes, even once.

I would have thought that was obvious but to each their own. Very nice piece, makes me realize that between Cedar Fair and Six Flags, the former really has taken the lead on large, custom, thrilling roller coasters for at least the past 10 years. Apart from wooden coaster "sequels" by RMC, Six Flags hasn't done much interesting at all.

I read an article that was the top 5 rides at cedar point #3 was somehow the windseeker #4 was somehow the Gatekeeper and #5 was somehow Gemini.

worst of all maverick wasn't even mentioned.

Whenever I go to the Cedar Point, I never miss getting a ride on the Thunder Canyon and the Wicked Twister, myself. I usually pass on the Ocean Motion though.

See, Gonch is right. Your vote doesn't matter.
