Definite no's would be Top Thrill Dragster, Millennium Force, Wicked Twister, Mine Ride, Raptor, Mantis, Wildcat, Mean Streak, and Blue Streak. Magnum, Disaster Transport and Gemini would fall into the "maybe" category depending on the seatbelts. Corkscrew may still be a go since it just has the horsecollar, but again, that depends on whether the restraint will engage.
Every person is different, but unfortunately, coasters are very unaccomadating (especially Intamins) for larger people.

The other coasters not listed here are most likely maybes, but I'm preaty sure you can go on those.

I have a 40-42 inch waist with a pretty large shoulder width and long legs (I'm 6'5 and a half at 15 yrs old), will I be able to ride Millenium Force, TTD, and Raptor? I know I probally won't be able to ride Wicked Twister. I've always have had problems with Intamin's restraints.
Though not nearly as tall, I am as wide (40-42") and I can fit on all of the coasters at CP, though some of the seatbelts are tight. Your height may give you some problems, a good suggestion is to cross your legs when you sit down, this will help quite a bit.

The Lost Phantom: You should be OK on everything except Wicked Twister. I am almost the same size as you (6'4", same waiste size) and had no trouble on any of the rides at CP when I went in 2000. WT was not there yet, but from what I have read, Intamin Inverts are the smallest restraints out there. I think TTD has the same seats as Xcelerator, and I fit in those.
SCREAM with me... in 2003!
But, in general, coasters that will provide problems to guests with larger upper bodies (say, perhaps, a 54" chest - though that is a general idea, not a rule) are Wicked Twister, Mantis, Corkscrew and Raptor (also Power Tower, but that ride is more accommodating than the mentioned coasters).
In general, coasters that will provide problems to guests with larger lower bodies (say, more than a 48" or 50" waist - again ... in general, not a rule) are Mine Ride (also affects tall people), Blue Streak, Top Thrill Dragster, Millennium Force, Disaster Transport, and Mean Streak (though it isn't as bad as Blue Streak).
I've been told that Top Thrill Dragster and Millennium Force will accommodate up to a 48" waist, FWIW.
It's hard to tell without knowing you, but I doubt you'd have any trouble with Gemini, Magnum, WildCat, or Iron Dragon. The seatbelts on Gemini and Magnum are accommodating to larger riders, especially if riding alone.
If you want more specifics or need clarification, just ask.

I went down on Memorial Day and it was a definite no go on both of those rides, though I could fit for everything else.
Two weeks later, CPLady and I realized that I would've been able to ride TTD... had it been up and running. ;)
Now, I'm going back and am pretty sure that I'll be able to do WT... or at least, I'm praying that I've lost enough for that shoulder harness thing to fit fine this time.
At any rate, I weigh under 250 and a month ago, it was a close-call for Blue Streak and Meanstreak's seatbelts, so FYI for anyone around that weight if you're around 5'6" like me.

Just *another* way FL parks have the rest of you beat....BADLY...:)
It seems today, that all you see, are violins in movies, and sax on TV....
This is my first signature. Please go easy on me.
The bummer was that the re-entry door was closed even with the minimal crowds....WHY make old people like me walk ALL that way for a re-ride? ;)
edit: I know what YOUR homepark is Ryan, and it's THE park for me...:)

Im just as tall as you are, all be it 10 years older. The Intamin impulses & inverts arent a problem because of width, but you're too tall! A good trick is to pull down on the harness where its above your shoulder (opposed to the vertical part in front of your chest) as this will give you more leverage. Then snap the buckle or have someone do it. The ride ops on both WT and S:UE helped me with this and otherwise I wouldn't have been able to ride...
On the other hand, Lost Phantom should have no trouble getting on any of the rides.
