Magnum XL-200 (Cedar Point)

Postby CP2013 » Tue Jul 24, 2012 7:53 pm

Magnum XL-200 is steel hypercoaster, manufactured by Arrow Dynamics, located at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. Built in 1989, it was the first complete circuit roller coaster to break the 200-foot (61 m) barrier. It is considered to have started the roller coaster wars, in which amusement parks competed to build the highest and fastest roller coasters

Apparntly, All the track for this was curved by hand. When it was built, they didn't have lasers to help either.
