Wow, Twisted Timbers is way higher than I was expecting. I'm not complaining, but seventh best in the world? That's awesome. :lol:

I'm wondering if the dominance of the Chinese GG/CCI/etc coasters is due to the US rides becoming unrideable so quickly, more being built in China, the 'far away vote high' syndrome, or a combination of all of this!

I am real pleased to see Kennywood get some love in the 50+ year old list. That's something I didn't totally expect to see.

While I agree far away syndrome is a thing, I think it's more that China has been installing more of the newer GCIs than the US and they have much better pacing. Two of GCI's biggest and newest coasters in the US placed highly in Mystic Timbers and Gold Striker.

Guilty as charged. Shockwave had some crazy airtime in the back row and felt even more forceful than Mindbender. The latter has the better setting though.

Could be. I rather liked Wood Coaster at Knight Valley for its setting, and the ride itself seemed better than your average GCI.

Same. Even though I haven't been to SFOT in a long time I still remember that crazy airtime. They're both great, though!
