Most states aren't worth mentioning in my opinion, so if your state only has crappy coasters I'm not listing it.

Alabama: Rampage (even not running it's the best thing in the state)
Arkansas: X-Coaster
California : Riddler's Revenge
Carolinas: Afterburn
Connecticut: Boulderdash
Florida: Kumba
Georgia: Dare Devil Dive
Idaho: Timber Terror
Illinois: Batman: The Ride
Indiana: Cornball Express
Kentucky: Kentucky Rumbler
Maryland: S:ROS
Massachusetts: Bizarro
Michigan: Shivering Timbers
Missouri: American Thunder, since I haven't ridden Outlaw Run
New Jersey: El Toro
New York: Silver Comet
Ohio: Maverick
Pennsylvania: Phoenix
Tennessee: Thunderhead
Texas: Iron Shark, since I haven't ridden the RMCs
Virginia - I305
Wisconsin: Hellcat

Florida - Kraken (SeaWorld Orlando)
Illinois - X-Flight (Six Flags Great America)
Missouri - Thunderation (Silver Dollar City) (When I was little.)
Minnesota - Renegade (Valleyfair)

You mean Kentucky Rumbler, right? Because I doubt you're talking about Dragon Wagon or the Zamperla spinning mouse.

My fanciful list:

Florida: Fire Dragon
Georgia: Mindbender
Illinois: Batman / namtaB (whatever it's called)
Indiana: Voyage
Kentucky: Dat Rumbler
Missouri: Wildfire
Tennessee: Thunderhead

Hopefully this year I'll explore parks and credits in other states.
