What are your TOP TEN COASTERS


Recommended Posts

After Dollywood and PA last year, big shake up in the top ten.

 

Top Wood: 1. The Outlaw Run 2. The Phoenix 3. The El Toro 4. The Voyage 5. The Beast

Top Steel: 1. The Millennium Force 2. The Skyrush 3. The Magnum XL-200 4. The Diamondback 5. The Maverick

 

Oh man, your top 10 is going to get shuffled when you get on Outlaw Run, The Ride; Phoenix, The Ride; Maverick, The Ride; Diamondback, The Ride; Millennium Force, The Ride; and The Beast, The Ride.

Even though I find it difficult to develop and maintain a top 10 list, I decided to do it last weekend to the best of my ability. Some roller coasters could probably swap spots based on my mood, but this is a general idea.

 

1. Skyrush (this is definitely #1)

2. Kingda Ka (front row only)

3. El Toro

4. Intimidator 305

5. Fury 325

6. Maverick

7. Twisted Colossus

8. Wicked Cyclone

9. Nitro

10. Fahrenheit (this ride is criminally underrated)

 

Honorable mentions that barely missed this list are X2, Millennium Force, and Superman the Ride.

 

I switched around the order of my Top 5 a little. See my signature.

Sometimes I like to pretend I'm too cool to keep a "top 10," but then I think: Who am I kidding? I'm not cool, and ranking things is fun.

 

1. Skyrush

2. Millennium Force

3. El Toro

4. X2

5. Twisted Colossus

6. Maverick

7. Diamondback

8. Phantom's Revenge

9. Behemoth

10. Intimidator:305

Just now saw this. Wow, I'm "great" now? Imagine that. lol

Only because it's a top 10 and not a top 15, then we would have probably had an appearance from Gatekeeper, Mystery Mine and Kingda Ka. I can only pretend to have a respectable list for so long.

And all of those deserve to be. I've long said those wing coasters are underappreciated. I think I put Mystery Mine at #10 for a stint before the PA/NJ trip knocked it off. It can't cope with Skyrush or Toro, but it's still one of the most fun rides I've been on. And Ka in the front row is pure adrenaline. You don't forget it.

 

Frankly, I think if your list looks like a typical enthusiast's, you're doing it wrong.

This is only what I’ve been on in the last 365 days or so.

1. Steel vengeance ( I tried not to like this coaster, however it the absolute best ride I have ever been on, I like that it does not want me to ride it and constantly tries to evict me from the ride while on it.)

2. Maverick, I am most upset that this got beat. Even after riding Vengeance I still think this coaster is and will still be my sentimental “best ride ever”

3. Tie. Millie and 325. Millie because she’s Millie and 325 because It’s even faster.

5. I-305. Yes I love my speed.

6. Tie. TTD and KK. TTD wins only for restraints.

8. El Toro. I understand that this should rank higher, however, look at my list, I can only be honest with myself and this by far it is the best (IMHO) true wooden coaster.

9. Twisted collossus. I don’t know why, but I just could ride this thing all day long, I got three days at MM last year and it was my most memorable ride by far on a great list of coasters and honorable mention for Tsatsu.

10. ROS (Darien Lake). There are 20 coasters better, this one however is in my home park and I have learned to appreciate what is in my back yard and no one should ever discount Intamins first hyper.
