Based off of one visit back in 2010.

1. X2. Love this ride, it's still firmly in my top 5. It ain't pretty, it ain't subtle, it ain't smooth... but man, it's just a monster. Brilliant stuff!

2. Tatsu. This has only recently been nudged out of my top 10, but it's still magnificent. Best flyer out there. To be fair I haven't been on that many but still, the others don't look as good as Tatsu.

3. Viper. Was really impressed with this, it was running really well when I was there, smooth and fast, and I do love a bit of 'old skool' every now and then. Just a good, old fashioned, big looper.
Plus, it also featured in one of my favourite movies - True Romance, so it was kind of a bucket list coaster for me anyway. To sit where Clarence sat - that was my goal and I achieved it. :)

4. Dunno really... Terminator Salvation, maybe? Almost new it was, with on-board audio, loads of Terminator theming, fire and explosions etc... and it was a new GCI, so it rode well. Yeah man, I liked it lots.

5. Superman (spited). I wanted this badly, it would have been my first 100mph coaster, my first over 300ft, and it looks cool. But I think it was undergoing its change from forwards to backwards, so it was shut. :(

It's all getting a bit vague now, and I'm having trouble ranking everything in exact order, so from here onwards everything will be in 'approximate' order.

6. Riddler. My first B&M stand up. Nice and big, and it rode well, but not amazing.

7. Batman. My first one of these, and I still like them, but they're not spectacular.

8. Scream! Crap setting (hello parking lot), but still a solid, smooth, large and fun coaster.

9. What's the Arrow suspended one called again? Yeah man, that was fun.

10. Colossus. Wasn't Twisted back then, just plain old Colossus. Only rode one side. Meh.

11. Goliath. Didn't rate this one much. It's like a poor man's B&M. Crap layout, no airtime, and the MCBR brings the thing to a standstill.

12. Revolution. Only had one ride on this, and it was pitch black, which actually made it pretty scary cos you couldn't see a thing. Bit like a night ride on Beast at KI... just not as good.

13. Deja Vu (Spited). To this day, a GIB cred still eludes me. That bugs me that does. I know it'll be gross, but I still need one.

14. What am I missing? Goldrusher? Uhm... yeah, can't even remember that. Must have been rubbish.

I think that's my lot, no Throttle, Lantern or Twisted for me cos, y'know... they hadn't been built yet.

Magic Mountain <3. I think I prefer their coaster selection to Cedar Point’s, it’s a bit more interesting (though this is without taking into account Steel Vengeance).

1. X2
2. Tatsu
3. Twisted Colossus
4. Full Throttle
5. Batman the Ride
6. Apocalypse
7. Riddler’s Revenge
8. Goliath
9. Scream!
10. Superman: Escape from Krypton
11. Colossus
12. Green Lantern
13. Ninja
14. Gold Rusher
15. Viper
16. Revolution
17. Road Runner Express
18. Canyon Blaster
19. Hot Rod Racers

#1-3 I’m pretty certain of. I haven’t ridden Riddler’s Revenge or Apocalypse since 2012, so whether they’d end up in the same place now I don’t know, but I remember loving them both. #9-16 is roughly accurate-ish, but some of those coasters could easily swap places depending on how I feel about them on one visit.

1. Twisted Colossus
My first RMC. Wasn't duelling when I was there but still lots of fun.
2. X2
A little more jerky that I expected, but a pretty awesome ride.
3. Tatsu
I wish it had a bigger first drop, the height feels a bit wasted. Pretzel loop is cool.
4. Viper
Classic. Surprisingly not too rough.
5. Riddler's Revenge
6. Superman Escape from Krypton

Surprisingly not intense. The launch feels pretty gentle.
7. Full Throttle
Short but fun. Good final drop.
8. Apocalypse
Not enough airtime for my liking.
9. Scream!
10. Ninja
11. Revolution

Pretty dated now but I'm glad they have kept it running for its historical value.
12. Goliath
This is bottom of my list because it was such a disappointment for its size. The constant-gradient drop is far too shallow and the helices towards the end of the ride are disgusting. One of my non-goon friends almost blacked out and refused to ride anything else for the rest of the day. Overall this seems to have been designed by somebody who doesn't understand what makes coasters fun. No wonder Giovanola only built 3 rides for themselves!

1. X2 - My #1 coaster.
2. Twisted Colossus - Dueling rides are excellent.
3. Tatsu - Fun layout and the pretzel loop is great.
4. Batman The Ride - Intense and has lots of whip.
5. Riddler's Revenge - Great layout and pretty smooth.
6. Full Throttle - Has the best hangtime I have experienced.
7. Viper - Not too rough and the loops are very forceful.
8. Ninja - Fun.
9. Scream - First ride I got was rough, but the second ride was smooth and made up for it.
10. Goliath - Good drop and good airtime on the first hill but the rest of the layout is not the best.
11. Superman Escape From Krypton - The launch had a good kick, but the rest was forceless.
11. Revolution - Forceful loop.
12. Gold Rusher - Fun family coaster.
 
1. Tatsu - A lot of people think that the Pretzel Loop is too intense, but it is the perfect level for me, love how out of control this beast is. Probably the 2nd best flyer after Flying Dinosaur because that is on a whole notha level.
2. Twisted Colossus - I got four dueling rides in a row so that made me very happy! The ride itself is fun but not great, definitely a weaker RMC but still a good time.
3. X3
don't care about the rest

  1. Tatsu - Love that damn pretzel loop.
  2. X2- The first drop is mental.
  3. Twisted Colossus - My only RMC but I laughed the whole ride. It's plain and simple just enjoyable.
  4. Full Throttle - The loop hangtime is crazy fun
  5. Batman - Still love it 20+ years later
  6. Riddlers - For the ride length.
  7. Scream - Haven't had that rough of a ride on it yet
  8. Goliath - The drop and the helix are fun but the rest is meh.
Haven't been on Green Lantern or Apocalypse
The rest I typically pass on.

Roller coasters and their respective overall rankings in my coaster count:
5 X2
18 Tatsu
25 Apocalypse the Ride
40 Green Lantern: First Flight
43 Viper
49 Scream!
57 Riddler’s Revenge
65 Batman the Ride
87 Colossus
88 Goliath
101 Ninja
114 Revolution
187 Gold Rusher

Most controversial part of my ranking is Green Lantern: was so surprised by the force on this Intamin Zacspin! Really enjoyed it, and got to ride it 5-6 times over its lifespan.

When did you ride Green Lantern? I think I rode it in 2016 and wanted to die.
