    0 - 999ft - Wicked Twister @ Cedar Point
    1000 - 1999ft - Stealth @ Thorpe Park
    2000 - 2999ft - Outlaw Run @ Silver Dollar City
    3000 - 3999ft - Lightning Rod @ Dollywood
    4000 - 4999ft - El Toro @ Six Flags Great Adventure
    5000 - 5999ft - Shambhala @ Port Aventura
    6000 - 6999ft - Voyage @ Holiday World
    7000 - 7999ft - Beast @ Kings Island

    I simply went with my favorites with each list though they each pack the most punch per group really. As for preferred length, my favorites tended to lie in both 3000-3999 and 6000-6999. I love a long coaster with great speed (Fury 325) or just lots of elements (Beast). However, my top two that are far above the rest are Lightning Rod and X2 which are both 3000-3999. I feel that length is ideal since it offers enough length to get many elements while also entering the brake run with a lot of speed. I love a ride that leaves you just breathless at the brake run making you think "WTF just happened?"
