I'm hesitant to post my list because I'm rusty in terms of park visits and am hitting at least three new ones within the next month. Something tells me SFMM and Knott's are gonna force me to seriously reconfigure my Top 10.


That said, I love seeing the Scorpion at BGA on thefitness's list. That's such an intense Schwarzkopf. (Vertical loop fangirl here.) I always get afraid that the older loopers are going to be forgotten among all the hypers and LIMs.

My top ten coasters!


1. MAVERICK - Cedar Point:

I could barely talk from yelling so much through out the ride! Holy $!%#!! This ride is freakin' insane! It's all speed and action from start to finish. There's airtime on all levels EVERYWHERE! Maverick has it all: Airtime, Speed, Inversions, Turns, Special Elements, and SMOOTHNESS! Allthough my first ride got abit vibratey coming out of the launch. I was expecting a fun headbanger with an insane element taken out. But wow, this is an amazing roller coaster. It's deffinately a Top Ten, and I bet you will agree! It just proves that you deffinately don't have to build the tallest and fastest with most inversions to be the best! But it's my 61st credit and Number One on my top ten!


2. MILLENNIUM FORCE - Cedar Point:

Such a great ride! Airtime and speed all over the place. With a 310ft drop nearly straight down, it has to be a top ten coaster!



Another CP ride. TTD is an amazing experience! The set up and theme of the ride is great and the ride is even better. The launch takes your breath away, and so do the incredible views!



A fantastic forcefull B&M with no headbanging! I love the zero-g!


5. MAGNUM XL 200 - Cedar Point

An old school Arrow with great airtime! A classic.


6. THUNDERHEAD - Dollywood

An insane wooden coaster that provides airtime and lateral g's that will blow your mind!


7. FIREHAWK - Kings Island

It's a great experience! And what I think is the best loop ever!


8. GEMINI - Cedar Point

A great coaster that is wayyyyy under rated! You get to slap hands on every turn and airtime on every drop!


9. FLIGHT OF FEAR - Kings Island

A fun launch with an intense cobra roll and the best corkscrew ever!


10. MANTIS - Cedar Point

Though I didn't ride it this year, I did last year and it was a great ride! No headbanging at all!


Off the list:

RACER (backwards) - Kings Island

So, this ride has no line...rpretty much never....and it has some great airtime!


RAPTOR - Cedar Point

It's a fun B&M invert....too bad there is alot of headbanging.


BEAST - Kings Island

I LOVE it at night!
