I'd be willing to bet they'd be more comfortable for riders who don't tighten their seat belt to the max, but like others have said, there are a variety of factors such as wind and capacity to consider. There's also cost. I love how Magnum almost never has a wait compared to the park's big 3 and doesn't go down even on windy days.


The trains were certainly more comfortable and felt less like a trashcan rolling down a hill, but they weren't glass smooth or anything.


Thanks! "Less like a trashcan rolling down a hill." Sounds like Titan was quite the ride. :lol:

One other thing I think could go a long way to making Magnum more comfortable while keeping the current trains would be to add some padding around those lap bars. Not sure if that's feasible or even an option.

Cedar Point is not in the habit of installing second-hand goods, so I don't so it happening to Magnum.

Well....except for the fact that almost all of the Planet Snoopy rides came from GL. As well as a lot of other things you might not notice like light poles from the area that was around Steel Venom at GL. So it's not like they've NEVER installed second hand goods from a closed park! :lmao:

Don't worry. Once Magnum has sunk enough, they'll relocate it to Dorney and they can use Titan's trains then.

^ Poor Steel Force. :lmao:

I remember the operator at Magnum was openly mocking Steel Force during my last visit.

Quick platinum pass question:

Does it matter what park you purchase your pass / get it processed at? Is there any difference between a KI platinum pass and a CP platinum pass, or is it just a cedar fair platinum pass, and the benefits apply universally?

Doesn't matter, and the benefits apply universally.

Technically the only thing that matters is I believe you have to get a replacement pass at the park you originally purchased or processed at if you lose it. At least the disclaimers on the back say that but Guest Services would probably help you if a situation comes up. I've purchased passes on CP's website before and have processed at KI in years past.

While Platinum Pass benefits vary per park (early entry for example at some parks but not others), you are entitled to whatever pass benefit the park offers with the pass. Discounts are typically the same chain wide.

Thanks guys, appreciate it! The official website is pretty clear on this point, but I think it could be even more clear. And every website (KD vs CP for example) words the benefits of the platinum pass a little differently. For example, the KD website says "...at all Cedar Fair Parks across the country..." but I know CW is included too. I guess they don't expect people to travel around to most Cedar Fair parks, and I plan on going to 5 this season.
