Haha ok that's quite odd to list coasters you haven't even ridden, but nevertheless we'd seem to be on the same wavelength there in terms of coasters (Space Mountain Paris, Colorado Adventure [coaster that usually don't make it to the top of the list very often]).

Of my pathetically low total of 28 credits, my list would be-

 

1. El Toro- Six Flags Great Adventure

2. Behemoth- Canada's Wonderland

3. Nitro- Six Flags Great Adventure

4. Incredible Hulk- Islands of Adventure

5. Bizarro- Six Flags Great Adventure

6. Kingda Ka- Six Flags Great Adventure

7. Flight Deck- Canada's Wonderland

8. Superman: Ultimate Flight- Six Flags Great Adventure

9. Batman: The Ride- Six Flags Great Adventure

10. Dragon Mountain- Marineland

 

Conclusion: When a SLC is your #7, it's a sign that you need to get out and ride some coasters! The main problem I have is unenthusiastic parents, but hopefully this list will be fixed this year.

5. REvenge of the Mummy: USF

6. BTR:SFMM

10. X2:SFMM This was lower on my list, but it was running crazy well at Bash. If it's running that well next year it may leap up higher.

 

Other Favorites/Honorable Mentions

Ghostrider opening year is still my favorite all time ride... the memories I have are awesome despite hating what its become.

I love Sierra Sidewinder but it's not quite "thrilling" enough to be in my top 10, but I absolutely adore the hell out of it.

I also really enjoy all the Disney coasters except gadget, which isnt bad for what it is.

Also Fire Dragon would have made it if Ice was working, but as it was not on my visit(only been there once) I found it just okay.

Also Alpengeist is cool, but probably my #12 or #13 or something like that.

Hulk wasn't running as well as it used to when I rode it in January. A little TLC, and it could bump up a few spots. I rode Manta for the first time in January, and it was surprisingly epic. Big Bad Wolf remains one of my favorites. My last ride was one week before the demolition announcement and I still held it in high regard. Miss ya Wolf!

1. Corkscrew

 

"That is too bold" - Kiera Knightley, Pirates of the Carribbean: BP.

 

I don't like to criticize other people's opinions, I'm just very, very surprised by that...though the airtime in the back seat on Corkscrew was ridiculous.

 

I can't remember if I've done a list, so here is mine (and it may be revised, as I've recently changed my list)

 

1. Maverick

2. Sheikra

3. Millennium Force

4. Kumba

5. Kraken

6. Montu

7. Manta

8. Dragon Challenge

9. Hulk

10. Raging Bull

 

Raptor is close, and so is Mr. Freeze and Revenge of the Mummy...none of my top 10 are woodies, unfortunately, because most of the ones I've been on are not so great

Well, after an amazing return trip (finally, after 5 long years) to Six Flags Great Adventure, along with some much-needed additional rides on El Toro (I had only gotten to ride it once during my other trip to the park), I am happy to report that El Toro has vaulted itself into my #1 spot. I got 6 rides on the jaw-dropping bull, and I was astonished how incredible that coaster still is 5 years later! And it has EVERY characteristic of a #1 ride for me - airtime-galore, thrilling, intense, smooth, and extremely fun.....no matter where you sit or when you ride! Every single ride on this wondrous creation delivers the goods. I could ride El Toro all day and be perfectly happy.

 

And that hill over Rolling Thunder? Holy seismic airtime, Batman!!

 

Updated Top 10:

 

1. El Toro - Coaster perfection for me....airtime unlike anything I've ever experienced!!

2. Millennium Force - Still my favorite steel....interested to see what happens when I ride I305 later in the year.

3. Voyage - For now, it slides down a few pegs. A reride with the Timberliners will be in order however.

4. (tie) Intimidator - Some don't like it, but I had superb rides on it last year!

4. (tie) Apollo's Chariot - Just plain awesome!

6. Diamondback - Great ride packed with airtime

7. Phantom's Revenge - Lucky to have this gem at my home park....I think it's ridiculously underrated

8. Ravine Flyer II - I need to get some more rides on this bad boy

9. Top Thrill Dragster - Yep, it's short....and I don't care. Totally LOVE the rush of this coaster!

10. Phoenix - Again, some more rides are a must on this airtime machine
