That coaster is awesome - couldn't believe how much better it was from the average Vek Roller Skaters when I visited last weekend!!


Disappointed to see so few European rides in peoples rankings, although I guess it's just a case that a lot of people simply haven't been to European parks (yet!). I still get frustrated that rides such as Sonic Spinball and Dragons Fury don't get their own entries, though...


As it is, here's my ballot - I did not include the new credits I have gained so far in 2011 (Heide-Park and Hansa-Park):

OK, my ballot's done. Drumroll, please . . .


Top Ten

Favorite Wood Coaster (Balder), Liseberg

Expedition GeForce, Holiday Park

Intimidator 305, Kings Dominion

Goliath, Walibi World

Phantom's Revenge, Kennywood Park

Nemesis, Alton Towers

SheiKra, Busch Gardens Tampa

Griffon, Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Mindbender, Six Flags Over Georgia

Diamondback, Kings Island


The only additions to my top ten are I305 and Mindbender.


The Bottom-Ten Hall of Shame

Tulireki, Linnanmaki

Cobra, Tivoli Friheden

MegaBlitz, Coney Beach

Goudurix, Parc Asterix

G Force, Drayton Manor

Eejanaika, Fujikyu HighLands

Great American Scream Machine, Six Flags Great Adventure (rest in pieces)

I've added a pair of Ninjas. I think Space Mountain in Paris will always occupy the bottom spot, because Disney should be ashamed of this thing, (I'd rather ride Primeval Whirl.)
