America's Roller Coast has been given a great honor by Theme Park Insider in their annual awards. Cedar Point's Steel Vengeance has been honored with the title of Best Roller Coaster for 2019 by the Pasadena-based theme park website. Finalists in each category were determined by 12 months of user ratings. For the first time the readers of the site also decided the winners.

The other finalists in Theme Park Insider's category of Best Roller Coaster included Six Flags Great Adventure's El Toro, Carowinds' Fury 325, Kings Dominion's Intimidator 305 and Twisted Timbers, and Six Flags Magic Mountain's Twisted Colossus.

Steel Vengeance replaced Mean Streak and had a bumpy opening day in 2018.

The ride uses some of the supports from its predecessor and is classified as a hybrid coaster using wooden supports and a steel track. It is described as a record-breaking coaster with the most airtime of any coaster in the world.
