^ I'm with this but I think it would be cool to see each chain - Six Flags, SW, CF, etc.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I put it a little bit higher because I pretty much have an "I'd rather be bored than in pain" outlook when ranking coasters but that ride is f*cking atrocious in every way. I have no idea how anyone can make a modern Wild Mouse that's that terrible. I know it's a family ride but I felt like the ride ops were about to ask us to get out and push.

... I feel like we already had this conversation but that's fine. There can never be enough conversations about how bad that ride is. :lol:


It's truly spectacular that every other ride at the bottom of my list is pretty much a violent looper and then you have a wild mouse that was 100% ruined by the restraints. And I'm only 5'9". I pity anyone taller who tries to ride it.

I was having issues with a few of my rankings rearranging, but before submitting my ballot, my #1 priority was to make SURE Coast Rider was at the very bottom of my list! :lol:

My rankings!

TOP 25
1) Millennium Force
2) Expedition GeForce
3) Steel Vengeance
4) Lightning Rod
5) Medusa Steel Coaster
6) El Toro
7) Outlaw Run
8) Kärnan
9) Wildfire (Kolmarden)
10) Helix
11) Fury 325
12) Storm Runner
13) Skyrush
14) Phoenix
15) Top Thrill Dragster
16) Maverick
17) Goliath (Walibi Holland)
18) The Voyage
19) Intimidator 305
**) Colossos (Heide Park) (wasn't officially on the rankings)
21) Banshee
22) Montu
23) Phantom's Revenge
24) Kingda Ka
25) Kumba
26) Incredicoaster

I admit that I seem to under-rate a couple enthusiast favorites (Maverick, I305). Two RMCs I consider mid-tier (Twisted Colossus, Twisted Timbers) didn't make my top 25 despite high finishes in the overall rankings. But I'll never apologize for having Kärnan in my personal top 10 (was #63 overall). Whoever put that thing together is an evil genius.

BOTTOM 10 (#1 is worst)
1) Hades 360
2) Bandit
3) El Condor
4) MP Xpress
5) Soarin' Eagle (Luna Park)
6) Temple of the Night Hawk
7) Crazy Mine (Hansa Park)
8) T3
9) Nighthawk (Carowinds)
10) Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril

I guess I have something against Nighthawks.

I'd like to post my rankings here, but I can't access them on the coaster poll website. I even navigated to my user profile and clicked "view entire rankings." Is this a known problem?

Go to account settings. There's an option at the bottom to make the rankings public. If you check that, you'll be able to access your own.

What "top 10" lists do you want to see? I'm talking best B&Ms, best coasters themed to animals, best coasters in a specific region, etc...


I’d be interested in seeing how everything was ranked top to bottom within all the major parks. Or if that’s too much trouble if the entire list is released I could figure it out for myself.
