The Best Woodie under 75 feet Tall


Recommended Posts

I hit up Indiana Beach for the final day of the season yesterday and I have to say that inch for inch Cornball Express has to be the best coaster out there. It definitely does the most with the least.

 

This got me thinking, what other relatively small coasters give amazing rides?

Cornball is pretty friggin good

 

Cyclops is just INSANE (but i think elevation-wise it's a little north of 75 ft.)

 

and also, Judge Roy Scream (SFoT), coming in at 70ft., is one of the better ones. It doesnt really stick out, but it is a genuinely fun ride, with great speed and airtime (in parts...). It's gotten a little fiestier with age, but it's still one of my favorite woodies. Oh, and it was my first coaster

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned New Mexico Rattler...it is 80 feet tall but the first drop is only 75 feet and it delivers an insane ride full of airtime and laterals. I have it ranked as my number two coaster all time...it rocks!

Blue Streak at Cedar Point. I went on it expecting a mild, smooth ride like Thunderbolt at SFNE, but was majorly suprised. Great airtime on pretty much ever hill. So what if it is 78 feet and not 75 feet or under? Does 3 feet really matter that much?

The Knoebels Phoenix - 78 feet tall with a 72 foot drop - averages right to 75. This is my favorite woodie - its just so much fun. Yeah, Hades is great, and El Toro is pure brawn, but I'll take a night on the Phoenix over any of them.

Phoenix is 78 feet tall, but its drop is only 72 feet. I'm going to go with Phoenix because I really can't think of a coaster with more airtime at any size. Cornball is really good also, but not quite at Phoenix's level of quality.

I haven't been on Phoenix, but out of the ones I have been on, definitely Cornball Express, that absolutely rocked in the back.

 

Cyclops at Mt Olympus is my strong second scraping in at 75' tall with a 70' drop.

 

Honourable mentions to Jack Rabbit and Thunderbolt (70' tall but 95' drop)at Kennywood.
