Some people go to amusement parks for the experience of it. Others go for the shows and the food. And then there are those who go to a park with one thing in mind: roller coasters. There is no better ride for a thrill seeker than the roller coaster. And the best place to find good ones is Sandusky, Ohio, where #Cedar Point has the most roller coasters in the field. It's not your typical Disney theme park. Cedar Fair doesn't need to bother with themes when their high thrill rides are so good. And their best rides are the roller coasters. Let's count down the best five at the park.

1. Millennium Force.

This 300 foot tall giga coaster was the first of its kind and was the tallest steel coaster when it was released back in 2000.

The coaster features a massive drop and is notable for the massive speed with which the rider travels. The ride also features several tunnels that increase the thrill level. The POV video below will give you a better idea of just how awesome one of the best roller coasters in the world is.

2. Maverick.

Maverick might not be more than 100 feet tall, but don't let that fool you. The ride starts off with a short lift and later initiates a launch sequence that features various inversions. The fountains that go off while the riders are on the roller coaster is a nice touch for a ride that deserves all the praise it gets. You can view the POV video below.

3. Top Thrill Dragster.

The original version of King Da Ka is the #Top Thrill Dragster, which broke multiple records for height when it came out in 2003.

The roller coaster features a launch and one really high climb that culminates in a drop from 400 feet. There might not be a more thrilling experience, but the short ride leaves the customer wanting more.

4. The Gatekeeper.

The new roller coaster built by Cedar Point in 2013 was a different type of wing roller coaster. This time, the objective was not height but length, and the ride broke a few records for it. The most thrilling portion of the ride comes when you go through two keyholes and almost feel like you will hit your head on them.

5. Magnum XL 2000

The smaller version of Millenium Force, Magnum XL 2000 broke ground when going above 200 feet in the year. The ride is considerably older and less comfortable than the other ones on this list, but still provides the roller coaster rider with an unbelievably thrilling experience.
