First off: I LOVE that word filter for the "meh" nickname for Steel Vengeance!
Secondly, I'm heading out to CP again today, but for a very different experience than normal. I'm taking my youngest child, who is 4, for the very first time, and am looking forward to him experiencing The Point, and hopefully loving it! Obviously, this means most of my day will be spent in Kiddie Kingdom, with some potential forays into Planet Snoopy, and Camp Snoopy! I think I may actually go see what Dinos Alive is about for the first time ever too!
I am bringing my daughter as well, to help out, and hopefully the weather isn't too crappy (afternoon thunderstorms currently predicted), but even so, it's not like I'm going to be there for the coasters today anyway...
Having said that, I'm looking forward to SV ERT tonight after park close, and hope I can another couple of rides on that amazing creation!
As for the aforementioned comments about Magnum, I actually think it's one of the MOST overrated coasters there is - specifically by coaster enthusiasts! I have yet to go to CP with any non-enthusiasts (which is 95% of the people I go with) who think it's better than MF, Maverick, or even Valravn or GateKeeper. I also have it well below those. When we went this past week, we didn't even ride it, because with the flow of how we were hitting the park, it just wasn't important enough to my kids (who have all ridden it) to bother making the extra walking, or missing out on another Maverick ride. Now, I'm not saying it's a trash coaster, and certainly nobody who likes it best is crazy (well, maybe if they like it more than SV! lol), but I would never consider it underrated, personally. If it wasn't so crucially important in the history of roller coasters, or at Cedar Point, I suspect it wouldn't be remotely as "popular" among enthusiasts as it is.
