    Seems like people love listing things, myself included, so I thought ranking a park's coaster seemed like a decent idea. I considered doing a ranking of Magic Mountain, but this is the year of Cedar Point.

    1. Steel Vengeance
    2. Maverick
    3. Millennium Force
    4. Top Thrill Dragster
    5. Magnum
    6. Raptor
    7. GateKeeper
    8. (Disaster Transport)
    9. Gemini
    10. Valravn
    11. Wicked Twister
    12. Blue Streak
    13. Rougarou
    14. Cedar Creek Mine Ride
    15. Iron Dragon
    16. Woodstock Express
    17. Wilderness Run (I assume :p)
    18. Corkscrew

    Until I ride Steel Vengeance...

    1. Millennium Force - Just the most enjoyable for me.
    2. Maverick - Great mix of some fantastic elements
    3. Top Thrill Dragster - WTF
    4. Gatekeeper - Lovely inversions, fun keyholes, nice airtime hill.
    5. Valravn - Fun dive machine with some good elements.
    6. Gemini - Racing aspect is fun (especially since the cars get so close to each other) and there's a couple of fun airtime moments.
    7. Wicked Twister - Only impulse I've done but the launches and twisties are quite fun.
    8. Rougarou - Nothing special but it's a solid B&M looper.
    9. Blue Streak - Good ol' PTC woodie.
    10. Raptor - Solid invert but not the smoothest and doesn't have the best pacing.
    11. Magnum XL-200 - Pretty mediocre actually. Runs rather awkwardly and the airtime is a challenge.
    12. Disaster Transport - Been years, was unique for me at the time. Remember it being too short.
    13. Mean Streak - I don't remember it doing much.
    14. Corkscrew - Also been a while. Remember the airtime hill was surprisingly good.
    15. Iron Dragon - Average family coaster.
    16. Cedar Creek Mine Ride - Another avenger family coaster, just not as interesting.
    17. Woodstock Express - I was forced to high five the ride op before they let me off.

    Haven't done Wilderness Run because I'm a shameful whore.

    Uh, lets see...

    Steel Vengeance
    Maverick
    Wicked Twister <3
    Raptor
    GateKeeper
    Gemini
    ----------- and the stuff I don't care about?
    Millennium Force (but also, meh)
    Top Thrill Dragster (but also, meh)
    Magnum XL-200
    Valravn
    Rougarou
    Blue Streak (running better this year than years past.. but still kinda meh, and I tend to love me a good out-n-back woodie...)
    Iron Dragon (not really bad... but I'd ride others before it)
    Cedar Creek Mine Ride (not really bad... but I'd ride others before it)
    Corkscrew
    Woodstock Express (not bad, but clearly meant for kids)
    Wilderness Run (ridden!) (not bad, but clearly meant for kids)

    And then I've ridden Mean Streak, Wildcat, and Disaster Transport (and Mantis) I'd put Mean Streak between Iron Dragon and Mine Ride, I'd put Wildcat under Gemini, and Disaster Transport, uh, between Magnum and Valravn.

    Just ranking anything that was open on my one and only visit so far (2016):

    1. Maverick - high expectations and did not disappoint!
    2. Millennium Force - this is great. Much more foreceful than expected, and that’s coming from a huge I305 fan.
    3. Raptor - Number 3? Yes! I love inverts and this has a great layout and forces.
    4. Top Thrill Dragster - it’s quite the experience.
    5. Magnum XL-200 - Wow, the world’s first hypercoaster comes to play.
    6. Blue Streak - this is a great little woodie, lots of fab airtime.
    7. GateKeeper - I’m not a big wingcoaster fan anymore but this is probably one of my preferred ones.
    8. Rougarou - pretty decent floorless. Good forces though a tad rough around the edges.
    9. Valravn - yeah, disappointing. Should be much higher up the list but well, restraints.
    10. Wicked Twister - I think this is my favourite impulse so far.
    11. Gemini - umm... it’s just fun I guess.
    12. Mean Streak - oh this was not that bad! :p
    13. Corkscrew - and neither was this! Plus the airtime hill is cool.
    14. Iron Dragon - the pacing is like a mine train. It was forgettable but suspended at least.
    15. Cedar Creek Mine Ride - this IS a mine train, and not suspended, and also forgettable.
    16. Woodstock Express - Literally nothing special.

    Hard to imagine Steel Vengeance not being #1 or at the very very least being #2. I shall have to see though.

    Plus, maybe I’ll try getting Wilderness Run next time...

    I mean.. airtime "galore" when describing Millennium Force may be a bit of an overstatement.

    (2017 visit) 1. Maverick 2. Millennium Force 3. Gatekeeper 4. Valravn 5. Blue Streak

    Past that, I'm at a loss for where to rank the rest, I didn't particularly enjoy the rides not on this list. But Magnum would have to be my least favorite, because of the horrible lap bar restraints that keep slamming down on you rather than locking in one place.

    After a bit of a think, I realized that I didn't really enjoy my last ride on Maverick as much, so I bumped it down to 3rd place. It's still good, but it didn't blow me away.
