    Masterpiece Intensity Ejectors Discomfort

    Unforgiving, uncompromising, and unforgettable, Magnum still manages to blow minds more than 30 hears after its opening. The rough Arrow Dynamics-jank we've all come to expect at this point can be argued to be a positive on this ride; while it may make some of the transitions a bit awkward and uncomfortable, it also gives us truly insane ejector airtime that simply never lets up throughout the entire ride. The aggression this ride displays when traversing the elements on this ride is something I wish Millennium Force had a bit more of.

    Magnum XL-200 is the best steel coaster ever created. Ride it in 1-3 for the most powerful ejector air of all time.

    Brutal, fast, thigh bruising and giggle inducing. This ride is definitely one for masochists, but happens to be an awful lot of fun. Final ride of our last visit went to Magnum. It is of course an utterly obsolete design, but the character flaws are what make this thing work it's magic. The first hyper, and easily the best of the Arrow's. Long may it continue.

    The OG Hyper. This massive arrow is very good. There are some great airtime moments throughout and it’s layout right up against Lake Eerie is really awesome. The coaster is surprisingly smooth for an older Arrow as well. The only reason I don’t rank it higher is because of the lackluster layout but you can’t expect too much from considering it was the first of its kind.

    She's tall, she's fast, she's reasonably smooth - until you get to the jank transition into the turnaround and remember that pre-CAD Arrow built this ride. The triangular airtime hills give great ejector, but the transitions are nowhere near smooth and the lapbar is quite uncomfortable even when bracing. Maybe a Morgan retracking or new B&M trains would make this a great ride, but for now, I just lament that Schwarzkopf and Stengel couldn't have designed and built it instead.

    This ride may still be iconic, but it’s sadly not aged too well with it’s roughness.

    7.8 out of 10!. My first ever on 200 feet coaster. I think the trains just need to be updated, as I think it slows it down.

    Airtimes First Drop Duration Rattle Discomfort Reliability

    Magnum XL-200 was the first hyper coaster ever made. In other words, the first coaster to reach past 200 feet tall. It opened decades ago in the 70’s and it’s tracks have not been replaced yet, not like Kennywood’s legendary airtime coaster Phantom’s Revenge. Because of its elderly state, this ride will try to throw you out of its seats like your bull riding. It’s very rough, but not as rough as Blue Streak. It’s speed will make your legs bang around and your neck and back will get a few beatings while riding. This thing just doesn't stop dropping because of its intense hills and incredible speeds. I do like the drop and the tunnels that it travels through on the way back, but it is a rattling and rough experience.

    Location Discomfort Dead spots Lap Bar

    Unlike spectacularly timeless classics like The Beast and Blue Streak, Magnum XL-200 fails to deliver an enjoyable ride in my book. The first half of this coaster is one giant dead spot, with the butterfly turnaround offering little besides seat shuffling and a harsh trim brake. The second half, however, manages to induce much pain, due to the atrocious design of these outdated restraints. Even after holding the lap bar during the entirety of the lift hill and first drop, immediately after I let go to put my hands up it slammed down onto my thighs and nudged tighter and tighter with every consecutive drop. By the triangular airtime hills, the pain was so much that it induced a flashback to the worst coaster I have ever ridden — Ninja at Six Flags Over Georgia. I was in a lot of unexpected pain by the end of the ride, suffice to say. I was foolish enough to give Magnum a second chance the next day, which still provided a ride just as painful as the first. If only Cedar Point could replace these outdated, bulky and clunky Arrow/Morgan hypercoaster trains with B&Ms, like Nagashima Spa Land did with Steel Dragon 2000...

    I have grown to love this roller coaster. Sure it is rough but it isn't too bad, it's still tolerable. This is definitely at least a top 25, but since my coaster count is still somewhat low it is a top 15 as of now.

    Nice surprise! Fun Ejectors

    Quite possibly the most fun I've ever had on a coaster. Although too be fair I do have pretty low standards. Didn't care one bit about the pain but other people hate this ride because of that

    With how many hyper coasters there are today, it's pleasing to see that Magnum is still among the best in the nation. The only issue is with the second hill and turnaround being really janky and feeling unnatural to go through. Otherwise amazing ride. There's a great drop, two strong floater hills, and a series of unforgettably intense ejector hills on the home stretch. It hurts so good.

    Masterpiece Discomfort

    Overrrated! All Arrow hypercoasters have some strangely bent tracks and are overall not very comfortable to ride. This started the "Coaster Wars" back then, where every park wanted to have the highest roller coaster. Didn't stand the test of time very well. I prefer the Morgan hypercoasters.
