California: Twisted Colossus, unless Railblazer completely blows me away when I ride it next month.
Florida: Expedition Everest (I only went to Disney, haven't been to SWO, Universal, or BGT).
Maryland: Superman: Ride of Steel
Massachusetts: Wicked Cyclone
Nevada: El Loco
New Jersey: El Toro
North Carolina: Fury 325
Ohio: Maverick (haven't ridden SV).
Pennsylvania: Skyrush
South Carolina: Intimidator, but Afterburn isn't far behind.
Utah: Cannibal
Virginia: Intimidator 305


Update:

I LOVE Railblazer, but Twisted Colossus is still my favorite coaster in California.

South Carolina is now Copperhead Strike. I love that ride way more than I should. 2nd favorite in the park.

New state:
Georgia: Goliath at SFOG. I love Twisted Cyclone, but Goliath was an awesome hyper and more along my taste in rides.
Steel: 176 / Wood: 32 / Total: 208
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

From what I’ve ridden:

California: Ghostrider (out of USH, Knotts, and SFMM - this ride is f**king bonkers if you didn’t know)
Illinois: Goliath
Missouri: Outlaw Run
Ohio: Maverick (yes, over SV)
Pennsylvania: Storm Runner (only been to Hershey, pre-Skyrush)
Maryland: Superman
Kentucky: Storm Chaser
Georgia: Goliath (haven’t been on TC)
Florida: Mako
Virginia: toughest call yet - I haven’t been on TT and I feel like i305 deserves another chance, so for now I’m going to default to Griffon, which I really do love
New Jersey: El f**king Toro
Texas: NTaG
Tennessee: Thunderhead (no LR yet for me :( )

These are my favorites, in the States with coasters I've been to, and been on! (I'm going to put my Runner-Up in parenthesis, just for fun!)

California: Tatsu - SFMM (Xcellerator - Knott's)
Colorado: Sidewinder??? Twister II??? The Flying Coaster??? All the Elitch coasters are bad, and I can't pick one!
Florida: Mako - SWO (Kraken - SWO)
Illinois: Goliath - SFGAm (X-Flight - SFGAm)
Indiana: The Voyage - HW (Thunderbird - HW)
Kentucky: Storm Chaser - KK (Lightning Run - KK)
Michigan: Shivering Timbers - MIA (Zach's Zoomer - MIA)
Minnesota: Wild Thing - VF (Excalibur, Corkscrew, and High Roller all tied, with no Renegade or SV there then.)
New Jersey: El Toro - SFGAdv (Nitro - SFGAdv)
North/South Carolina: Fury - Carowinds (Afterburn - Carowinds)
Ohio: Steel Vengeance - CP (Maverick/MF tied - CP)
Pennsylvania: Phantom's Revenge - Kennywood (Ravine Flyer II - Waldameer)
Tennessee: Lightning Rod - Dollywood) Wild Eagle - Dollywood)
Texas: Superman: Krypton Coaster - SFFT (Poltergeiest - SFFT)
Virginia: Twisted Timbers - KD (This should be Volcano... RIP Apollo's Chariot - BGW)
Washington: Classic Coaster - Washington State Fair
Ontario (Canada): Behemoth - CW (Vortex - CW Clearly, I haven't been there since Leviathan and Yukon Striker!)

-Looking at my Top 10, I have 3 coasters in Ohio there, and then no other state with more than one, with the Carolinas, Virginia, Indiana, NJ, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania all represented.
-Broadening it to Top 25, Ohio has 7 coasters there, with 3 of them being at KI. However, in spite of not having any Top 10 coasters, Florida has the second most coasters in my Top 25, with 4 (almost 5!) Pennsylvania comes in third with 3.
-One of the most interesting things, broadening it more, and looking at the states, is that through the Top 40, the state with the most coasters, is not Ohio... but rather Florida! With 9 coasters in my Top 40, it tops Ohio by 1! Broaden that to Top 50, and I add no more Ohio coasters, but do have the now-defunct Dueling Dragons coasters, giving Florida 11, if non existent coasters are counted. An impressive showing by the parks of Florida, which reinforces why I love going there every few years for coaster riding, as their percentage of excellent coasters is very high!
