3)Apollo's Chariot


5)Dominator at Kings Dominion

6)Lightning Racer

7)Storm Runner

8)The Loch Ness Monster

9)Flight Of Fear at Kings Dominion

10)The Big Bad Wolf

Top 10 isn't really an easy thing to do. Especially when ride experience is almost never the same twice. Here it is at the moment, but I'm sure it will be totally different after my next trip!


01. Colossus (Backwards) - SFMM

02. Xcelerator - KBF

03. Goliath - SFMM

04. Riddler's Revenge - SFMM

05. California Screamin' - DCA

06. Medusa - SFDK

07. X2 - SFMM

08. Tatsu - SFMM

09. Batman The Ride - SFMM

10. Roar - SFDK


As you can see I only ride California Coasters. This will change very, very soon.


Sarah's Top 10


01. Tatsu - SFMM

02. Goliath - SFMM

top 10...


1. Kumba- makes me gray out everytime i ride it(BGA). i LOVE it

2. Return of the mummy(USO)- i think this is the perfect mix of airtime, great effects and just an all around comfortable ride.

3. Sheikra(BGA)- haven't ridden the floorless version yet but am looking forward to it. i really like the G's on this one.

4. Space Mountain(DMK)- its just a classic and still draws more than any ride in Disney.

5. Dueling Dragons Ice(USO)- i really love this coaster which is weird because i have a horrendous fear of inverted coasters (anything with my feet dangling freaks me out)

6. Mystery Mine(DW) - again a really well themed coaster, its a little rough in some parts, but the drops r pretty sick!

7.Kraken(SWO) the sickest zero G roll in history!

8. Expedition Everest(DAK) this is a great example of incredible theming, a steel coaster thats semi jerking like a wood coaster but not as bad, forwards, backwards, a broken yeti pretty good drops and force.

9 Dueling Dragons Fire(USO) again with the inverted coasters, extra scarey for me. but love the near misses

10. zephyr (ponchatrain beach new orleans now closed) this will show my age but it was my first coaster i rode it when i was 9 and it was an old wooden p.o.s. beat the bejesus outta u and was about the least safe i have ever felt on a coaster. i have to thank the zephyr for getting me hooked.

Here are my top coasters:


-Cornball Express

-Scooby Doo's Spooky Coaster



-Kentucky Rumbler


-Goliath (SFOG)

-Space Mountain

-Steel Hawg

-California Screamin'



-Millennium Force

-Top Thrill Dragster


In the "Can't be touched" category:

Scooby Doo's Spooky Coaster - It's just an experience that can't be touched in my opinion. The ride, the theming, the place...it's just something that I will not forget.


Top 10 Coasters:

1. THE Voyage: Completely blew me away, ejector air all over the course, and a smooth but out of control feeling. WOW.


2. Maverick: It's just everything that I'd want from a coaster....and more!

3. Diamondback: I've been SOOO lucky to have different, exclusive rides that people have never had, nor will they be able to have! Those rides make this a HIGH top coaster in my list.

4. Goliath: Just sooo many times I got that stomach in my throat feeling. And I LOVE that feeling!

5. Space Mountain: Wow, I loved the experience! The ride and theming.

6. California Screamin': Very Similar to Maverick.

7. Cornball Express: Ejector air, crazy lay out, and buzzbars!

8. Kentucky Rumbler: Just an awesome wooden coaster.

9. Afterburn: Fanastic B&M invert, great forces, great elements.

10. Steel Hawg: One CRAZY coaster. Very NEW elements and feelings it gave me. It's something different, and I loved the hell out of this ride!
