1997 - 2010
Beginning in the 1980's Cedar Point would begin to add bigger and better thrill rides to the park. Soak City Water Park began soaking guests in 1988. Magnum XL-200 opened in 1989 as the tallest roller coaster in the world. In 1990 guests would go on an outer space adventure with Disaster Transport. Mean Streak opened in 1991 as the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster in the world. Challenge Park opened in 1992 featuring Challenge Racing and Challenge Golf. In 1993 riders would be soaked with Snake River Falls. The Main Midway would receive a huge makeover with the addition of Raptor in 1994. In 1995 Cedar Point would celebrate its 125th anniversary. Manits opened in 1996 as the tallest, fastest, and longest stand up roller coaster in 1997. With all these new additions there would be much more to come in the future.
After adding Chaos in 1997 Cedar Point would continue to add: Power Tower (1998), Camp Snoopy (1999), Millennium Force (2000), Vertigo (2001-2001), Wicked Twister (2002-2021), Top Thrill Dragster (2003-2021), Splash Zone (2004), maXair (2005), Skyhawk (2006), Maverick (2007), Planet Snoopy, and Shoot the Rapids (2010-2015). All of these additions would give something the park didn't have before and would better round out its collection of rides and attractions.
