Before this year I'd only been on about 15 coasters, but after my UK trip in June (plus a couple of new credits in Australia) my count is 45. So my top 10 has changed hugely.

4. Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster - Warner Bros Movieworld

5. Wild Mouse - Aussie World

6. Cyclone - Dreamworld

7. Scenic Railway - Luna Park Melbourne

8. Rattlesnake - Chessington

9. Road Runner Rollercoaster - Warner Bros Movieworld

10. Mick Doohan's Motocoaster - Dreamworld.

Although I rode a decent number of new coasters this year, there weren't that many changes to my lists. On the wood list, Ravine Flyer II was added causing Giant Dipper to get bumped off. On the steel list there were a couple of changes: Tatsu moved ahead of Maverick, X2 was removed from the list, and Leviathan was added.

Some new coasters entered the list and some got shuffled around because they were better or not as good as previous years.

 

On the wood list, Wodan enters at #8 and Legend, which I was never overly fond of before, kicked my azz with multiple OMGWTF rides this year and lands at #3, just behind Voyage and El Toro. Wow. Raven comes in at #10, putting all three of HW's coasters on my top ten.

 

On the steel list, blue fire Megacoaster sneaks in at #8. The coasters above it remained unchanged.

2. Giant Dipper (Belmont Park, San Diego)

I only got four new credits this year, but that was enough to change my list. I added Skyrush to the top and everything moved down a spot.

 

1) Skyrush (the left wing is better than sex)

2) El Toro

3) Maverick

4) X2

5) Top Thrill

6) Millennium Force

7) Nitro

8) Apollo's Chariot

9) Flight of Fear (I love both)

10) Phoenix

 

The ride that fell off the list was Medusa at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
