Magnum XL-200 Filming for Legacy of Arrow – Throwback Thursday

Today’s Throwback Thursday comes from this past summer, when I had the privilege to cross the country with my good friends Robert Ingle and Nicholas Laschkewitsch to help tell the story of Arrow Development.

The documentary is coming out later this year – so for now, enjoy this great scene of Magnum XL-200 (world’s first hypercoaster) from Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH. The fire ants and muffleheads were INSANE!

As for my hair – I’m pretty sure I was wearing a hat that day…

  1. I thought it was called Magnum XL-2000 not 200?

    • Nope. XL-200 for breaking the 200 foot barrier.

      You may be thinking of Steel Dragon 2000 in Japan.

      • Weird. My memory has been long for over 20 years.
