What are your TOP TEN COASTERS

Recommended Posts

1. Millennium Force (CP)

2. Maverick (CP)

3. Tatsu (SFMM)

4. Top Thrill Dragster (CP)

5. Collosus (Thorpe) - Another not so popular one, yet I really enjoyed this one and rode it several times

6. X2 (SFMM)

7. Full Throttle (SFMM) - ohhh how I love that near weightless feeling in the loop after launch!

8. Saw (Thorpe)

9. Silver Bullet (KBF) - I know this one is not as popular with other enthusiasts, although I personally enjoyed it

10. Gatekeeper (CP) - There are several coasters that I might have put here at #10, but at least Gatekeeper is lots of smooth fun, and comfortable.

My signature is from 5 years ago and since then I haven't really been to many new parks, but I recently moved to DC so this upcoming summer I will likely visit parks such as BGW, SFA, HP, DP, SFGAdv, SFNE. I also plan on checking out Fury 325, Lightning Rod, and Storm Chase next year.


Basically as of now some of my favorite coasters are:




Cheetah Hunt

Goliath SFOG


Shivering Timbers


I really can't wait to get another 100 coasters in next year! Including top-notch ones like El Toro, SkyRush, SROS, Wicked Cylone, Fury 325, and more!

I'm definitely at a point where ranking is frustratingly cumbersome, even though I've done what I can to make it easier on myself: strictly ranking wood and steel separately, seriously limiting the coasters I bother to rank, and keeping track of everything on CoasterCounter. But I still think it's worth keeping up, particularly since there are still many quality coasters I have yet to ride which could really shake things up.


To emphasize the tentativeness, here are my lists without numbers, but still in approximate order.


10 best wood coasters

Boulder Dash


Coaster (Playland)


Giant Dipper (SCBB)

American Thunder

El Toro (SFGAdv)

Timber Terror

Outlaw Run



10 best steel coasters


Iron Rattler

New Texas Giant

Dodonpa (new)

Kawasemi (new)

Top Thrill Dragster

Phantom's Revenge

Eejanaika (new)


Lightning Run



--Yes, it pains me to have two coasters from Fuji-Q in there, but the truth is the truth.

--I finally downgraded X2 from #1 just to avoid the embarrassing risk of Eejanaika becoming #1, as I suspect Eejanaika is just a bit better--it's definitely smoother which is a major plus.

--Kawasemi and Lightning Run really are very similar, with each being a little better in its own way, and the two being neck-and-neck in other regards. Kawasemi is definitely the closest I've ridden to being a simply "perfect" coaster, but a few small quibbles prevent it from actually deserving #1.

I never really counted before now, but just realized I hit my 10 mark last week @ the Wa. State Fair! Hooray me!


1. Timber Terror - Silverwood

2. Classic Coaster - Washington State Fairgrounds

3. Aftershock - Silverwood

4. Tremors - Silverwood

5. Timberhawk - Wild Waves Theme Park

6. Corkscrew - Silverwood

7. Rainier Rush - Washington State Fairgrounds

8. Klondike Gold Rusher - Wild Waves Theme Park

#9 and #10 were when I was young and I hardly remember them so I'll put them here until re-rides happen-

9. Space Mountain - Disneyland

10. Matterhorn Bobsleds- Disneyland


11. Wild Thing - Wild Waves Theme Park will probably stay at the bottom for some time- should be near Corkscrew but it's so incredibly bad



Timber Terror

Outlaw Run


Yeah Buddy- although it worries me that Outlaw Run is there, my expectations for it are high. Also I'm more and more angry at myself I didn't get my EDL in time to get to Canada and ride Coaster this year, especially when I see it on people's lists

I thought after SFOG that Goliath or Mindbender might end up in my top 10 but they sit just outside of it. My top 10 is in my signature, hasn't changed since Kennywood/Cedar Point last May.
