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: Cedar PointSix Flags Magic Mountain Top Thrill DragsterSuperman: Escape from Krypton Magnum XL-200Goliath GateKeeperX2 Millennium ForceTatsu RaptorBatman The Ride MaverickFull Throttle Mean StreakApocalypse MantisRiddler's Revenge Iron DragonNinja GeminiColossus Wicked TwisterGreen Lantern CorkscrewRevolution Cedar Creek Mine RideGold Rusher Woodstock ExpressRoad Runner Express Jr. GeminiSpeedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers Blue StreakMagic Flyer Viper Scream!

I may be a little biased because its an hour away from where i live, but lets look at it this way; Cedar Point’s coaster are coasters that are customized to fit the park. Many if them are “first of it’s kind” coasters, and coasters that you can’t find anywhere else. Magic Mountain has a great coaster line up however, several of their coasters can be ridden elsewhere (Goliath, Batman The Ride, Scream). Im going to MM for the first time this summer to see what all the fuss is about, but for now, this one goes to Cedar Point for their originality record breaking coasters. Don’t get me wrong though, MM has a few original, great looking coasters. Reply Jeremy May 1, 2014 Both parks have a huge amount of coasters and many are well know by coasters addicts like myself. But Cedar Point still trumps Magic mountain in my book. Six flags may have more coasters but there main attractions just don’t stand up to Cedar point. Reply Koolcat May 1, 2014 I like cedar point but I really want to go to MM because of it’s coaster line up. I choose MM. Reply Sharon Ingraham May 1, 2014 It’s not just that there are 19 coasters. There are 19 great coasters. If you love to ride coasters then you’ll love Magic Mountain. Reply Jasmine May 1, 2014 Both parks may have alot of rollercoaster but one only one theme park is well known and the best known theme park is six flags Reply Miguel May 2, 2014 I would say six flags magic mountain. Reply Angel Amaya May 2, 2014 Definitely six flags magic mountain!! Great coasters,food,exercise and a great time for the entire family, no matter the age.

Reply mike May 2, 2014 Six Flags is heads and shoulders the best, cleanist friendliest and most def awesome rides and attractions!!!! Reply Ralph May 2, 2014 I have been to both many times and they each have a form of one-upsman over the other… but overall the most varied and, at the end of the day, the best overall TOTALLY awesome experience is found at Cedar Point. And it has the most beautiful setting on that peninsula jutting out into Lake Erie, it’s gorgeous! Reply Surya May 2, 2014 For me its Cedar Point. Mavrick, TTD and Millennium Force give it the edge. Reply June Moriya May 2, 2014 By far, SIX FLAGS MAGIC MOUNTAIN has the MOST THRILLING coasters!!! Wahoooo! Reply Kay May 3, 2014 Hands down SFMM. Their coasters are fantastic!! Reply Esteban Gallegos May 3, 2014 DEFINITELY SIX FLAGS MAGIC MOUNTAIN Reply Joel May 3, 2014 It’s pretty close, but I’d probably go with Cedar Point on this one. Magic Mountain wins in a few categories, Cedar Point has Maverick, Millennium Force (which I liked, didn’t love), and I’d take Magnum over Goliath even though it’s pretty old, it has character. Meanwhile, I think I’d prefer Magic Mountain’s woodie Apocalypse over the snoozer that was Mean Streak and I know I like Riddler’s Revenge over the painful Mantis. But overall, I think I’d go with Cedar Point. Reply scott June 13, 2014 See, I would say Cedar Point was the winner if all of the coasters were now standing in their original form. Mean Streak, circa 93, was OUTSTANDING, but now with all of the breaks (especially on the first drop) it is indeed, a snoozer. Kids love it though, they feel like they really tested their wits. Mantis also has a break down the first hill which wasn’t originally there. Gemini used to be quite a bit smoother (that killed my back in 09) and same with Magnum though I can’t complain with the air time (about the best steel coaster ever built for air time). Sadly time has hurt these original landmarks and Magic Mountain I find superior, mostly because of X2 which is the best coaster on the planet imho. Reply Chris May 4, 2014 Six Flags Magic Mountain – no contest! The coasters are great, the Park is clean and the employees are friendly and helpful!!
