I consider my home park to be Great Adventure even though it's not really even close to being true, and ranking their coasters isn't easy but this is what I came up with...


1) El Toro

2) Kingda Ka

3) Batman (I feel like I should say Nitro but I can't do it...)

4) Nitro

5) Bizarro... I think (I could really have gone with Joker, Skull Mountain or even Superman just as easily).

6) Superman

7) Skull Mountain

8) Joker

9) Choo Choo

10) Dark Knight

11) El Diablo Loop Coaster (I put this here just to piss you off)

12) Blackbeard or whatever the hell it's called today

13) Road Runner Railway

14) Getting run over by a freight train

15) Green Lantern

My "home" park as far as being what's closest to me is Silverwood in Idaho. With only 4 coasters, it's not hard to list the order of my favorite to least favorite.

1. Aftershock

2. Timber Terror

3. Tremors

4. Corkscrew


My subjective opinion on coasters to the parks I tend to travel to the most

Cedar Point

1. Millennium Force

2. Maverick

3. Top Thrill Dragster

4. Gatekeeper

5. Raptor

6. Valravn

7. Rougarou

8. Magnum XL200

9. Gemini

10. VR version of Iron Dragon (regular Iron Dragon would rank second to last)

11. Wicked Twister

12. Cedar Creek Mine Ride

13. Blue Streak

14. Corkscrew

15. Meanstreak (in its original form before closing as of Sept. 2016 - anything new may rank it higher than the bottom of my list)

* I don't consider Pipe Scream a "coaster" (more of a flat ride), and I've never ridden the two kiddie coasters, so no opinion on those. IF Pipe Scream had to be included above, I'd probably put it after Wicked Twister.


SF Magic Mountain

1. Tatsu

2. F*ll Thr*ttle "Full Throttle"

3. X2

4. Goliath

5. Twisted Colossus

6. The New Revolution

7. Scream

8. Batman

9. Riddler's Revenge

10. Superman

11. Green Lantern

12/13. Ninja & Viper (two very different coasters, yet to me a tie as far as enjoyment).

14. Apocolypse

* No opinion on Goldrusher since I haven't ridden it in years, and also none of the kiddie coasters since I don't go on those.



Not a home park or one I have visited often, but based on recent & existing rides from past visits to Knott's:

1. Silver Bullet

2. Ghostrider (2016 version)

3. Xcelerator

4. Sierra Sidewinder

5. Jaguar

6. Pony Express

7. Boomerang

8. Coast Rider

I haven't ridden Montezooma's Revenge for several years, and it was down last month, so hard to give a complete accurate opinion on this one.

Knott's Berry Farm


1. Xcelerator - One of the few coasters I will re-ride

2. Silver Bullet - Not the best, but underrated

3. Montezooma's Revenge - Classic

4. GhostRider - I haven't been since the reopening. It used to be my #1

5. Coast Rider - It's fine

6. Jaguar! - Hasn't aged well

7. Pony Express - Would be MUCH higher if the queue/ride time ratio was better

8. Sierra Sidewinder - I don't really like spinning coasters

9. Timberline Twister - My first coaster!

10. Boomerang - I never ever ride this

For Thorpe Park:


Colossus (only on odd number rows)

The Swarm (However last visit it seemed weak, next year it may move down)


Samurai (only when on intense setting)




Nemesis Inferno (excluding back row in the rain. Then a very good ride)


Rush (only this far up when arms fully swing)

Loggers Leap

Flying fish

Tidel Wave.


As you can see there are many ifs and 's.

Six Flags St. Louis

1) Batman

2) American Thunder

3) Mr. Freeze (#1 before reverse blast conversion)

4) Screaming Eagle

5) Mine Train

Tied for last: Ninja,Boss,Boomerang


It's neat to see all of the batman clones still ranking decently in parks with solid attractions. It has been said many times before, but I wonder if the layout would hold more appeal if it had only been placed at Great America.

Where would you put Ninja? Personally I think it's a top 5 ride in the park but I know I'm in the minority on that.

Six Flags Great America


Batman The Ride

Raging Bull





American Eagle



Superman Ultimate Flight


Gol could have easily topped this list if they hadn't left out the iath part of it.


I've really warmed up to B&M Wing Coasters, especially X-Flight. Of the US Wing Coasters, I've also ridden Mild Eagle and Gatesleeper. X-Flight spends much of it's time near the ground and hauls ass from the top of the lift until it hits the brakes. Until I get the chance to return to Holiday World and wet my beak on Thunderbird, this is far and away the best of the stateside Wing Coasters.

You'll be satisfied with Thunderbird, which I feel is a cut above the rest. I agree with your comparison of X-Flight to the other US Wing Riders.
