Yes, I know I'm alone in thinking the Magnum is better than MF (actually, the Golden Ticket Awards agree with me!). Until recently, I considered the 2 rides tied. I love MF for the insane 1st drop and speed, but the Magnum can't be beat for sustained airtime on the 3rd hill and the airtime-filled run back to the station. The airtime on MF is good, but mostly just floating airtime, not like the rip-you-out-of-your-seat-airtime found on the Magnum. What cliched the Magnum as my favorite was my trip last week where I was lucky enough to catch a night ride on both the Magnum and MF. I rode MF first, and it was the greatest experience of my coaster-riding life (to that point, anyway). There's something about the lit up Mean Streak looking like a kiddie coaster from MF's lift hill that I can't explain. Awesome ride!

Just when I thought the dispute was settled and MF won as my favorite steel coaster, I headed over for a night ride on the Magnum, and this old dark horse came from behind and showed its newer, bigger rival just what's up. First of all, the trims before the pretzel didn't brake the train as much as they usually do, and the pretzel (especially the last half of it) just made me feel like I was twisting to my death. Then came the 4 hills back to the station. Each one is designed to provide more airtime than the one before it. Going through that section at such a high speed made the airtime insane! Violent negative G's. The overall ride possessed a power that MF just doesn't have (maybe because it is so smooth). About the Magnum being rougher. Yes, I noticed it, but I think it adds to the ride. It's not too rough to where it's uncomfortable, and if people consider be渀最 猀氀愀洀洀攀搀 椀渀琀漀 琀栀攀椀爀 氀愀瀀 戀愀爀猀 搀甀攀 琀漀 栀椀最栀 渀攀最愀琀椀瘀攀 最✀猀 愀猀 爀漀甀最栀渀攀猀猀Ⰰ 琀栀攀渀 琀栀攀礀 挀愀渀 爀椀搀攀 琀栀攀 䤀爀漀渀 䐀爀愀最漀渀 愀渀搀 䐀椀猀愀猀琀攀爀 吀爀愀渀猀瀀漀爀琀 愀氀氀 搀愀礀 愀渀搀 猀琀漀瀀 挀漀洀瀀氀愀椀渀椀渀最 愀戀漀甀琀 琀栀攀 䴀愀最渀甀洀 戀攀椀渀最 琀漀漀 爀漀甀最栀℀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀䤀 猀琀椀氀氀 氀漀瘀攀 䴀椀氀氀攀渀渀椀甀洀 䘀漀爀挀攀Ⰰ 戀甀琀 椀琀✀猀 樀甀猀琀 渀漀琀 焀甀椀琀攀 愀猀 最漀漀搀 愀猀 䌀倀✀猀 漀爀椀最椀渀愀氀 栀礀瀀攀爀⼀最椀最愀 眀栀愀琀攀瘀攀爀 礀漀甀 眀愀渀琀 琀漀 挀愀氀氀 椀琀 ⴀ 挀漀愀猀琀攀爀⸀
