Built by Arrow Dynamics, this was the worlds first hyper-coaster, and still the one with the best retro-dork cool name. With a 205-foot tall first hill and top speed of 72 mph, it made its debut in 1989 and soon after attained "legend" status.


Surprised by the intense airtime on this, really quite a coaster, especially considering its age. 9/10
Better than Millie but not as good as Mav... It's my #2 at the park because it's such a classic and just an all around amazing coaster. 9/10
Lots of fun and a roller coaster that has stayed in pretty good condition based on the age. It appears to be rougher from the ground, but its pretty smooth. It also gives similar drops and airtime as Millennium Force, but with kinder seats.
Great ride. Holds up really damn well. Great airtime, mostly is a smooth ride, some of the landing can be quite rough. Definitely make time for this one.
This is one of my favorite roller coasters. You get great views of the park and Lake Erie, some good big drops and tunnels. The best place to ride this is closer to the front, in the front row of the third car you can still get some good airtime, especially coming out of the first tunnel into the third hill. My favorite drop is the second one right by the lake, that turns to the left into the first tunnel. It's almost perfect; if they could fix or replace the trains I would give it a ten so instead it's... Rating: (9.5/10)
Truly fun ride, wait times are always within reason, and has a very good layout.

Only drawback is rows in the front will be a bit bumpy, and you will remember that arrow dynamics made this coaster, but nonetheless, an excellent testament to Ron Toomer's coaster skills.

This ride is still the airtime king of Cedar Point, but it is a fairly rough ride by today's standards.
Still on of the better arrow's out there with great views of lake Erie. Nice turns and air time and fun tunnels. But is no longer a very smooth ride and the cars are uncomfortable.
Great ride. Really great. This coaster quickly became one of my favorites at the park. Good speed, good air, great views, and a fast moving line make for a terrific coaster experience. Honestly, with a much better throughput and a great ride experience, I might even prefer Magnum over Millennium Force.... 9-Outstanding.
This coaster had amazing airtime! Definetly one of my favorites!
