Out of the Top 25, the only ones I've been on are Tremors and Timber Terror at Sliverwood. Timber Terror is not bad for a woodie, but hardly deserving to be in the top 25. Tremors has some crazy ejector time and speed!!! That's the best coaster at Sliverwood and is worth trying to find the park (it's in the middle of nowhere!).

    22tComet Great Escape
    22tTimber Terror Silverwood
    24 Cornball Express Indiana Beach
    25 Megafobia Oakwood

 

This is how I ranked them:

 

  • 1 El Toro SFGAd
    2 Balder Liseberg
    4 Phoenix Knoebel's
    5 Colossos Heide Park
    6 Hades Mount Olympus
    8 Raven Holiday World
    10 Kentucky Rumbler Beech Bend
    12 Ozark Wildcat Celebration City
    14 Renegade Valleyfair!
    14 Thunderhead Dollywood
    14 Timber Terror Silverwood
    15 Avalanche Timber Falls
    15 Troy Toverland
    16 Cornball Express Indiana Beach
    17 Aska (S) Nara Dreamland
    18 Rampage Alabama Adventure
    20 Coaster Playland
    20 Tremors Silverwood
    21 Thunderbird PowerPark
    25 The Voyage Holiday World
    27 Comet Great Escape
    28 Boardwalk Bullet Kemah Boardwalk
    29 Megafobia Oakwood
    30 Shivering Timbers Michigan's Adventure
    32 Boulder Dash Lake Compounce

 

Interesting to see that Boulder Dash and Timbers are at the bottom. I have to say that those two might very well be two of the most "overrated" coasters I've ever been on.

 

Maybe I just didn't hit them on good days or something, but now having been on both of them multiple times and even during events, I just don't "get" them.

I get a kick out of it, that (usually) every year, my home coaster makes a list of some kind. I guess that's what makes getting a season's pass worth while, here.

 

And from this list, only three ridden:

 

#5 Balder

 

#20 Coaster (yay homie!)

 

#25 Megafobia

My #1 - El Toro (Poll #2)

My #2 - Thunderhead (Poll #3)

My #3 - Troy (Poll #4)

My #4 - Boulder Dash (Poll #6)

My #5 - Cornball Express (Poll #24)

My #7 - Phoenix (Poll #7)

My #8 - Rampage (Poll #14)

My #9 - Raven (Poll #13)

My #13 - Voyage (Poll #1)

My #14 - Kentucky Rumbler (Poll #18

 

Looks like, with the exception of Voyage, I like the top of the list, and I think Cornball is underrated.

Here is mine. If people stopped being idiots, The Beast would be at [1].

 

Short of replacing the original Beast with an Intamin woodie with a buttload of airtime, that ain't going to happen.

So we're idiots for not liking something you like?

 

Sorry if I prefer not to have my back slammed into a rock hard seat back over and over again.

2 El Toro SFGAd

5 Balder Liseberg

7 Phoenix Knoebel's

25 Megafobia Oakwood

 

I've only ridden four of them.

 

EDIT: I would put Balder on top, but the order remains the same for the others.

It's my number two. It's fun. But only in the front. But anywhere else it's pretty rough. But if you are talking about 'idiots' that added trims all over, then true!

^ Since that worked so well to make El Toro #1.

 

It was very close this year, but last year it was not. Voyage is inevitably going to get rougher and possibly more trimmed, while El Toro's superior technology should keep it running well for years. It's probably just a matter of time. Balder, another Intamin woodie, has made #1 for 2 of the 5 seasons it has been open.

If a coaster is only great under certain conditions does it deserve to be rated so highly? I say no!

 

I don't care what the conditions are: a certain seat or car, time of day, temparature, season, ERT at enthusiast events, while sitting next to Elissa and getting her credits also. If a coaster can't be consistent it can't be a Top 5 coaster on my list
