1989 – Cedar Point opens Magnum XL-200, the first roller coaster to break the 200 ft height barrier, therefore spawning what is considered to be the "coaster wars".
This was the great trip of 1998 to Cedar Point, Will in the front row with Tim Bowen & Kevin Spencer in the Second row. We got so much tail on this trip.
