Cedar Point vs Six Flags Magic Mountain

Cedar Point vs Six Flags Magic Mountain | Roller Coaster Showdown

Cedar Fair and Six Flags are two of the largest theme park chains in the World. Cedar Fair’s flagship park, Cedar Point (Sandusky, Ohio) has been known as The Coaster Capital for years as it boasted the most roller coasters and most record breaking roller coasters. But, in more recent years, Six Flags Magic Mountain (near Los Angeles) has taken the coaster count crown surpassing Cedar Point several times.

Today, Magic Mountain has a commanding lead. Once Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers opens, it will have 19 compared to Cedar Point’s 16. Roller coaster count is one thing, but which of the parks truly has a better lineup of roller coasters?

There are some similarities and types of roller coasters that they both have. For example, you’ll find a stand-up coaster, inverted coaster, and a suspended coaster at both parks. But for the most part there aren’t great side-by-side comparisons.

So, I’m interested to see which park you think has the better arsenal. For easy reference, I’ve included lists of the Cedar Point and Six Flags Magic Mountain’s roller coasters below:
