Cedar Fair Rankings

Hello theme park fanatics, all of you probably know about most of the parks in the Cedar Fair chain, if not all of them. In this forum I created it so I could see what everyone ranks the parks in Cedar Fair chain. Best to worst (They all are pretty good though). For a reminder here are all of the 12 Cedar Fair parks. (I am excluding water parks)
~Kings Island
~Knott's Berry Farm
~Carowinds
~Michigan's Adventure
~Cedar Point
~Dorney Park
~Valleyfair!
~Kings Dominion
~Canada's Wonderland
~Gilroy Gardens
~California's Great America
~Worlds of Fun
Now to start off, here is my list:
1. Cedar Point (obviously)
2. Kings Island
3. Kings Dominion
4. Carowinds (This could easily take 3rd but I prefer I305 to Fury325)
5. Canada's Wonderland (As said by many, it only has two stand-out coasters, and all above have at least 3)
6. Knott's Berry Farm
7. Dorney Park
8. Valleyfair!
9. Worlds of Fun
10. California's Great America
11. Michigan's Adventure
12. Gilroy Gardens
I am open for debate about my list, and would love to see yours!

Generally, I agree with your list. I would put Michigan's Adventure higher, as with CW (no so great coaster collection-- but great flats)! I wouldn't even count Gilroy on this list anyways. It is a great little park.

5) Canada's Wonderland

Gilroy Gardens doesn't really count because it is owned by the City of Gilroy, Cedar Fair only controls the park's operations .
