Oh there is nothing wrong with older coasters. Im just talking about the type of coasters that dont have drops and such. For example Blue Streak at Cedar Point to me was a lot of fun! It backed a punch for a small old woodie. I enjoyed it and was screaming with joy just like any other coaster ..my friend not so much...just looked like she wanted to really get off soon as possible....lol

Geogria Cyclone really is stupidly good for whatever reason in the second to last seat.

If people dont mind can someone explain this huge appeal of coasters like Adventure Express at KI and Whizzer?? They seem to be ranked so high in this thread but to me...."flat" coasters just dont do it for me.....and by flat i mean no real drops or/and inversions. Its just most twisty track. I noticed they get praised a lot by coaster enthusiasts and i dont know why. To me these type of coasters are like over sized Dragon Wagons....so please if its ok can someone explain the big appeal to "flat"/lack of element coasters...


It's called personal preference.


Height speed and steepness do not make *always* = great ride. Many people would think I'm crazy that I rank Runaway Mine Train and Skull Mountain over Kingda Ka at my home park but its simply because I enjoy them more. It's not that I don't like big and fast - look at my top 10.


I, and I feel like many people in this community are open minded enough about all rides big and small, especially classics that have aged well, and can appreciate a ride regardless of its speed and height.


boldikus, you're brave for rebuttling. Appreciate the backup.

1. Yankee Cannonball

2. Untamed

3. Canobie Corkscrew

4. Dragon


Those first two compliment each other (as in, airtime vs. forces) perfectly. And I almost want to give Untamed the top spot for the single-rider line, so I can cheat more rides from it.

Well, now that we (Playland) finally have four coasters again, since so long ago our Wild Mouse was dismantled....


1) Coaster (But of course!)

2) Kettle Creek Mine Coaster (A bit of an intense kids' coaster, that even some adults are shocked about.)

3) Bug Whirled (It really doesn't spin that much, but still fun, and the kids/families/I love it!)




4) Corkscrew (I have no love for this, anymore.)


#4 - Burn. It. Down... somehow.
