Harry Callahan of coasters. This coaster is a force to be reckoned
with. Made by Arrow Dynamics of Clearfield, Utah. At 205 feet
with speeds in access of 70 mph, Magnum XL-200 is one hyper coaster.
The positioning of this coaster relative to Lake Erie is just the best.
It makes my day. As you climb up the lift hill you should take a look
around. Look right, look left. See the sites because in just a
few short seconds you will be over the top and sensory overload will kick
in. This feeling is common with skydivers as mind and body can't
register all emotions fast enough and sometimes it can launch you into a
coma for a split second. This is the feeling I was looking for, I love
it. Magnum is positioned, facing north, so that you can see most of Lake
Erie and just make out the coast of Canada. The second drop
throws you down towards the breaking surf only to find yourself pinned to
the back of the car as you enter the pretzel helix. Positive G's are
exerted as like never before. With wind in your hair and facial skin
pulled back taught, I believe that this is the moment you've waited for.
Although Magnum is tall, this structure looks as sound as Ayers Rock in
Australia (largest rock in the world). No matter how often you ride
this coaster it will always surprise you.
