My highest are:

 

Expedition GeForce

New Texas Giant

Fury 325

Pyrenees

Shambhala

Anaconda (Gold Reef City)

Flying Aces

Dragon Khan

Skycar (Mysterious Island)

Sky Scrapper

 

Outlaw Run

Wood Coaster (Knight Valley)

Lightning Rod

Ravine Flyer 2

Rampage

Tremors / Timber Terror

Troy

 

Also, in a whole different category than 'quality', I have an affinity for obscure rides. Like, Wild Train (Austria), Diving Machine G5 (Taiwan), Tree Topper (Nova Scotia), Montezum (Hopi Hari), Animal Coaster (Indonesia), Nefeskesen (Turkey), Nitro (India) and Lightning (Kuwait). These are all freakishly high on my hitlist.

Right now, It's the Peter Pan and POTC attractions in Shanghai Disneyland; the Alice In Wonderland attraction in TDL;

FROZEN at TDS; everything else at the Tokyo Disney Resort. By 2023.

 

Everything coming up at WDW - maybe 2020?

I'm pretty sure we'll get to see it, and experience it all.

I can speak for the bolded ones:

-Slingshot: Depends on the type of sling. The ones that use actual bungees are much more intense than the spring tension ones, but the spring ones still have some decent force.

-Skycoasters: Quite fun. The little bit of freefall before you catch and swing is a nice sensation. There's also a big variety of sizes and locations that can add new thrills to them.

-Skyscraper: Again, pretty fun. The arms generally spin fast enough to prevent any major whipping, which does make them a tad tame for me, but still solid.

-X/X2: Old school 4Ds are pretty funky and fun, although they can be pretty rough. The closer you are to the front, the better the ride. The first drop in the front seat is still one of my all time favorite coaster moments.

-Top Scan: I went on my first one at Oktoberfest this year...it ended up becoming my favorite flat ride ever. Amazingly intense, extremely disorienting, and will leave your head spinning for several minutes.

-Top Spin: Entirely depends on the operator. Given the ride is often manually operated, a skilled hand could mean the difference between an okay ride and an insane one. So if you get on one that's not very good, don't be too let down.

Why does Nemesis keep coming up. Yeah, it is a good ride but it certainly does not beat the RMC collection or Mack, and the ride is simply too short to be good enough. Also the harness' are different to the usual B&M harnesses, which means that when head banging occurs (which it does) it is more painful than it should be. Honestly, the harnesses are ROCK solid, no sponginess at all!

That's the first time I've ever heard anyone complain about Nemesis. It's been consistently ranked higher than 12 every single year on the Mitch poll and most people prefer the old school restraints anyways. It's on my personal wish list too and for good reason.

Nah, I prefer those type of restraints to the modern best ones like Swarm, but these ones are coated in a solid white paint. Rankings are not the most important thing, Helix is an awesome coaster and has not been up there. Don't get me wrong it is a great ride, but not a bucket list ride.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Perfect list of some of the best rides out there. I would only make two small adjustments and replace Triy withFirmula Rissa and medusa with Wildfire.

Nemesis is on my personal bucket list because of awesome theming, being an incredible park, and the fact that if I'm riding it, then I'm in England! Making a trip to the British Isles is a bucket list item for me in itself.
