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


Recommended Posts

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

After riding in a few more states, I'll update this.

 

Arkansas - X-Coaster

Indiana - Voyage (#2 overall)

Kentucky - Kentucky Rumbler

Oklahoma - Silver Bullet

Colorado-- Cyclone

Florida-- Kumba

Georgia-- Goliath

Illinois-- Goliath

Indiana-- Voyage

Kentucky-- Kentucky Rumbler

Only going by what I've ridden...

 

FL: Hulk

MA: Wicked Cyclone*

NV: Manhattan Express

NJ: El Toro

NY: Cyclone

PA: Skyrush

OH: Diamondback

TX: Road Runner Express (I visited SFFT when I was young.)

VA: I305

 

*I was there on a cold day, so Superbizarro ran slow and was not impressive. Had I hit SFNE on a day with warm weather, there's a good chance it would be my favorite coaster.

 

If I include what I suspect I'd like but haven't experienced...

 

FL: Mako

MA: Superbizarro

NV: Desperado

NJ: El Toro

NY: Comet

PA: Skyrush

OH: Diamondback

TX: Iron Rattler

VA: Apollo's Chariot

I haven't been on coasters in every state, so I'm unfairly judging for a lot of these. I'm going to this in a few parts since I can't type these all at once.

 

Alabama: Rampage

Arizona: Desert Storm

Arkansas: X Coaster

California: Twisted Colossus

Colorado: Glenwood Caverns Alpine Coaster

Connecticut: Boulder Dash

Delaware: Nothing

Florida: Montu

Georgia: Goliath

Hawaii: Nothing

CO - Cyclone

FL - Kumba

GA - Goliath

IL - Batman The Ride

IN - Voyage

IA - Outlaw

KY - Lightning Run

MD - Superman Ride of Steel

MI - Shivering Timbers

MN - Steel Venom

MO - Outlaw Run

NJ - El Toro

NY - Cyclone

OH - Maverick

PA - Storm Runner/Skyrush (impossible to choose between them, and Phantom's Revenge isn't too far behind, either)

SC - Swamp Fox (Not been to Carowinds yet)

TN - Tennessee Tornado (I get the feeling this might change before long...)

VA - Apollo's Chariot

WI - Hades

 

I think that's it. Obviously missing a few states that I hope to visit eventually- not going to rank something I haven't ridden or even seen in person.

Only been to parks in PA, NJ, VA, and NC, but I'll comment for those states.

 

PA) Tie between Skyrush and Phoenix. Skyrush for the pure insanity of it, Phoenix for how insanely fun it is.

NJ) El Toro, hands down, no doubt about it

VA) Intimidator 305

NC) Fury 325
