Well, this will be fun. Of course, several states could have a number of honorable mentions, but I suppose that's not really in the spirit of the thread, so I won't mention any unless my rankings are just too close for comfort.


I noticed that a healthy majority of states I've visited have at least one top- 10 or 25 coaster for me. And all but Oregon are at least in my top 50 wood or steel (which in either case means I like plenty about any one of them).


Arkansas - X Coaster

California - X2

Colorado - Cyclone

Connecticut - Boulder Dash

Florida - Montu

Georgia - Goliath

Idaho - Aftershock

Illinois - Viper

Indiana - Voyage

Iowa - Tornado (long-held soft spot)

Maine - Excalibur

Maryland - Wild One

Massachusetts - Cyclone

Minnesota - Renegade

Missouri - American Thunder and Outlaw Run

New Hampshire - Yankee Cannonball

New Jersey - El Toro

New York - Comet

North Carolina - Intimidator

Ohio - Maverick

Oregon - Ice Mountain Bobsled

Pennsylvania - Phoenix

Tennessee - Thunderhead

Texas - Iron Rattler

Virginia - Flight of Fear (maybe?)

Washington - Classic Coaster (Coaster Thrill Ride)

Wisconsin - Cyclops


British Columbia - Coaster

Quebec - Vampire

My personal list of favorites is as follows:


Maryland- Superman Ride of Steel

Virginia- Volcano The Blast Coaster

Pennsylvania- Lightning Racer

New Jersey- El Toro

New York- Coney Island Cyclone

California- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (I only went once when I was a little kid, so I couldn't really go on coasters)

Florida- Dragon Challenge: Chinese Fireball


Looks like I really need to get to some more parks and/or states.

Massachusetts - Superman: Ride of Steel

Michigan - Shivering Timbers

Illinois will probably switch to Goliath this summer. Pennsylvania might change as well, but Phantom's Revenge and/or Ravine Flyer II will need to blow my mind for this to occur.
