^Makes sense, especially Six Flags New England. Out of the parks I've been to, I would say that one is by far the most polarized. They have two absolutely amazing coasters (WC, Superman) and three total pieces of crap (Flashback, Goliath, and Mind Eraser pre-2017). Carowinds is very similar as well.
Steel: 160 / Wood: 32 / Total: 192
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)

Keep in mind that some parks just have a lot of coasters. If you calculated the percentage of top 50 / 100 coasters divided by the total rankable coasters per park, things might look different. I'm not calculating all those percentages because are you nuts?!?


Haha no worries and thanks for the response. I was thinking something in the "most in the top 100" would jump out at me and a few certainly did. Universal Studios Japan, I had kind of forgotten about the indoor spinner and their pair of B&Ms (also reminded me of how much I'd LOVE to see a flying Dinosaur coaster at either of the american parks).
Lagoon- I know Cannibal was rated fairly high but that park kinda slides under the radar a bit probably based on location.
Also kind of surprised about Dollywood, I generally think their coaster lineup overall as being one of the better ones out there when it comes to quality vs quantity so only 1 coaster in the top 100 is surprising.

A.J. wrote:The parks with the most coasters in the BOTTOM 50 are:

3 - Canada's Wonderland, Darien Lake, Great Escape
2 - Carowinds, Elitch Gardens, Michigan's Adventure, Movie Park Germany, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, Six Flags New England, Six Flags St. Louis


Totally expected to see La Ronde on this list haha, and I don't care what the rankigns are I'm still looking forward to my trip to Darien Lake in a few weeks :p :b .

I personally was quite surprised to find Wild One (SFA) lower than InvadR and Flying Turns. While I haven't ridden InvadR nor Flying Turns, from what I've read, those rides are reported to be tamer family rides (which isn't a bad thing), while Wild One is IMO a surprisingly awesome coaster with solid air and fun laterals on the final helix (provided you don't sit in a wheel seat), especially considering its age (+100 years).

I wonder if this is just because the system is still in Beta testing, or if Flying Turns and InvadR are better than I've been led to believe.

"Beta Testing" has nothing to do with the outcome of one coaster over the other. I guess it just happened to be that most other people didn't like Wild One as much as those other two coasters.

That has nothing to do with our "beta test". I feel like the top 50, the bottom 50, and MAYBE the top 100 are really the only groups where there is a legitimate consensus. All the other "middle" rankings are a bit more volatile in my opinion and can be skewed based on how people ranked the coasters in those groups - each coaster individually, some coasters grouped together, ranked in some other way, or not ranked at all. In the grand scheme of things, most of those coasters in the middle are either "good", "okay", or "bad" and it really isn't such a big deal which one is ranked over the other.

Best Wood Lightning Rod....Goliath SFGAM....Shivering Timbers....Storm Chaser...Voyage
Best Steel Maverick...Lighting Run.....Montu...Mako..Fury...Afterburn...Manta
Honorable mentions Kumba..Raging Bull..Legend..Cornball..M Force..Rapter..Mr Freeze

You know what....Way to many good coasters the best :lmao:

^ Thunderhawk tracked as well as any SLC I've been on minus the Great Nor'Easter, but those old, bulky OSTRs still led to unavoidable headbanging so I can see how it ended up so low still.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Phoenix, Wildfire, Outlaw Run, Boulder Dash
Top 5 Steel- Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Helix

As a short person I can guarantee that nothing with those obnoxious bulky OTSR's is ever going to get a high spot on my list. If I'm repeatedly slamming my head and ears into something I'm not having a good time.
