10 Best Cedar Point Roller Coasters RANKED for 2023!

Are you ready to conquer the best roller coasters at Cedar Point?

Located right off the Lake Erie peninsula, Cedar Point is the second oldest amusement park in the world after Lake Compounce.

The 152 year old park was crucial to the start of the infamous coaster wars of the 1990s by building Mangum XL-200.

Magnum XL-200 debuted in 1989 as the world’s 1st hypercoaster breaking several records upon its opening and consistently making the Golden Ticket Awards’ Top 50 Roller Coasters list every year to this very day.

Since then, Cedar Point adopted the nickname “Roller Coast”, due to its 15 record-breaking coasters that followed Magnum and the fact that it’s off Lake Erie.

With that being said, if you’re a coaster enthusiast like myself, you are going straight to the very best that a theme park has to offer.

Cedar Point is no exception as the flagship for the Cedar Fair company, which boasts over 16 different parks under their umbrella.

Today, I am going to go over the 10 best Cedar Point roller coasters just for you!
