What are your TOP TEN COASTERS


Recommended Posts

Updated after Cedar Point Visit on Labor Day:

 

1- Stormrunner @ HP

2- Top Thrill Dragster @ CP (just the lap bar is great on a Strata Launch Coaster)

3- Phoenix @ Knoebles

4- El Toro @ Great Adventure (Interchanges w/ Phoenix at Num 3 based on mood)

5- Millenium Force @ CP

6- Nitro @ Great Adventure

7- Maverick @ CP (w/o head banging over shoulder restraints would be higher, unique ride for sure)

8- Talon @ DP (Best Inverted -Ive been on)

9- Farenheight @ HP

10- Lightning Racer @ HP

 

Honerable mentions and notes and aside:

-Kingda Ka fell way down, TTD is this ride done right the 1st time)

-Raptor @ CP came close to 9 or 10 but I figure type into my Top 10, and as far as Inverted Talon still top for me

The 3rd hill on SROS @ SFA is easily one of the best moments of airtime I've experienced personally. That alone makes it a worthwhile ride for me.

 

Really? I've only got a couple of laps on that one (many more on SFDL) and they just seemed rather weak to me. I got off thinking "Wow, this sucks compared to (my) SFNE SROS.

 

I can't compare it to SFNE's as I've yet to get on it ( ) but in the front of the train the third hill you can easily count close to a good second of being thrown into the restraint there. In the back the airtime on that hill isn't quite as impressive, though.

We met at Diamondback this year, right? Like, August 3rd I think?

 

Actually, my only rides on Steel Eel ever were on a wet and misty morning in early Spring, wet enough to buy ponchos when we got to the park. I don't know if the rain helps grease things up or what, but I was in airtime heaven on that thing. I guess I've got to get back there to try the night rides.

7, and last. Mean Streak, Cedar Point

 

I need to ride some more of the great wooden coasters before I really think about combining the lists.

 

edit: oops, somewhere Maverick probably ought to fit into my top 10... great ride that I rode 4 times in less than an hour on a recent visit to CP, but the OTSRs gave my shoulders bruises for the next two weeks.

Yup we did! My favorite rides on Diamondback are in the morning in the front, when employees ride...especially riding by yourself. The trim doesn't have to do anything so that hill produces FANTASTIC floater air!

 

Steel Eel's midcourse just killed the rest of the ride for me...coming to nearly a crawling stop...blah.
