Best Roller Coasters in the US (By State) or country


Recommended Posts

Wisconsin- Hellcat.

Illinois- Raggin' Bull

Missouri- American Thunder

Indiana- Hurricane Hoosier

 

 

Hellcat is a very rough ride. Not nearly as smooth as Zippin' Pippin. Not nearly as high as Hades360. No known portion of the track like Cyclops; yet Hellcat is the best roller coaster in Wisconsin. It won't continue to be the best roller coaster in Wisconsin if its owner does not give it the proper maintenance it deserves. They need more traffic for their rollercoaster coaster to have the funds to maintain it properly. I'll contribute next year by frequenting their park.

 

Raggin' Bull. This is what Superman claims to be. You feel as if you are flying in the air. 202 foot drop.

 

Missouri- On my first visit to Six Flags St. Louis this Summer a woman from Missouri asked me, sarcastically, "what's in Wisconsin?". BETTER ROLLER COASTERS than Missouri. American Thunder it is. Boss? Seriously.....almost as poor of an investment as the Bears signing Cutler to a long term contract.

 

Indiana- Hurricane Hoosier. I would have said Cornball express. That's how I felt when I left Indiana Beach this Summer while on my first visit there. But, after thinking about it for a long time this is the best roller coaster in Indiana. I can't wait until I get on it again.

And here I thought I was alone! The Bull definitely isn't the best roller coaster I've ridden, but it's still one of my favorites.

^I hate to be "that guy" but Afterburn is in South Carolina. Fury 325 is the best coaster in NC

How do you know? It's not even built yet. It is going to be the best.

 

Florida- Kraken

Indiana- Voyage (Soon to be Thunderbird)

Kentucky- Lighting Run

Ohio- Millenium Force

 

I'm pretty sure that's all I've got.

 

Hmmm......

I put a Carowinds cheat sheet in the first post of this thread. Amazingly the best coaster on the North Carolina side is Carolina Cobra until Fury 325 opens.

 

Also I'll never understand you Magnum Xl 200 people. Every time I ride it I try to understand what I'm apparently missing but I just can't get over the fact that it's a painful ride. I probably ride it multiple times on every visit to Cedar Point just trying to find a seat that doesn't suck but I can't do it.

 

I really, really want to like this ride because I know there are a lot of people that think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread but I just don't get it. Help me understand... lol

Washington: Wild Thing (AKA Rocky Point Corskcrew )

 

Oh you'll be crying alright, if you ever ride it again... Whoever installed it here made sure it was extra-special rough for us Washingtonians. Or Arrow made it that bad, I don't know. All I know is that it's not the best in WA, unless by 'the best' you actually mean 'most painful.'

 

I have only been on coasters in 3 states actually, and CA was long long ago when I was ~10, but here are mine;

Idaho - Timber Terror, Silverwood

Washington - Coaster Thrill Ride, Puyallup State Fairgrounds

California - Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Disneyland

^^^ I get that you were trying to be funny by changing tense, but your post makes you sound dumb when you post:

How do you know? It's not even built yet.

and you go on to name coasters that aren't built as soon to be best in the state.

 

IA: Outlaw

WI: Cyclops

OH: MF

PA: Skyrush

MI: Shivering Timbers

MO: Prowler (only been to WOF)

IN: Legend (haven't been since Voyage was added)

IL: Batman (Haven't been there since Goliath was added)

MN: Renegade

TX: Titan (Haven't been since RMC paid a visit to this state)

CO: Cyclone

New York: Coney Island Cyclone

New Jersey: El Toro

Massachusetts: Bizarro

Pennsylvania: Talon

Florida: Expedition Everest

 

Headed to California in October. I anticipate Xcelerator will be my favourite coaster from that state, but we shall see.

Turns out that Full Throttle was my favourite California coaster. Oh, and Boulder Dash for Connecticut.

There's only two wooden coasters in Washington, that I know of. Spokane doesn't have one, pretty sure. So this "best of" really is kind of meh for this state. It's either/or for The Best. As for a steel coasters, again, whatever Puyallup or Wild Waves serves up.

For me it is so:

NV: Manhattan Express @ NYNY (only NV coaster!)

Actually it is not the only coaster in NV. There is Desperado at Buffalo Bill's and El Loco and Canyon Blaster at the Adventuredome.

He probably meant it's the only one that he's been on.
