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


Recommended Posts

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.

 

Yea I probably misunderstood him.

Interesting topic. Well, for me, although I've ridden everything in Missouri, most many times, I've only recently started venturing out of the state, so here's my list:

 

Illinois - Goliath (my #2 overall)

Missouri - Outlaw Run (my #1 overall)

New Mexico - New Mexico Rattler

Texas - Superman at Fiesta Texas (haven't been since Iron Rattler)

Wisconsin - Meteor at Little Amerricka

I can add a couple new states now!

Indiana - Voyage (my #2 overall; Goliath drops to #3)

Kentucky - Kentucky Rumbler

Here is my list....I go to Hersheypark this July so will be able to add Pennsylvania by then..and I will wager even money that Skyrush will probably be my favorite.

 

1 Ontario: Not a US state but still North America...Leviathan

2 Florida: Manta, I have been to all the parks and there are some great rides, too many to choose from...I just love flyers.

3 Virginia: Apollos Chariot

4 California: X2, Tatsu a close second

5 Ohio: Maverick

 

and as an addition given my nationality

 

6 The 51st state Saw The Ride

 

Hoping to add Texas and New Jersey in the next couple of years as I want to try the Iron Rattler and El Toro.
