Like @Howie I'm an old git that has ridden every coaster at Alton over the years, but I wouldn't know where to rate stuff like The Black Hole and The Mouse by modern standards so I'm just going with the current line-up.

1. Nemesis
2. Rita
3. The Smiler
4. Wickerman
5. Air/Galactica
6. Thirteen
7. Oblivion
8. Runaway Mine Train
9. Spinball Whizzer
10. Octonauts

Of the removed creds Thunder Looper and Corkscrew would be the best :)

7. Air (with VR it's worse)
8. Runaway Mine Train
(Yet to ride Wickerman and I doubt I'll ever ride Octonauts)

Rode Corkscrew back in the day too. +10 nostalgia points however I found it rode rather terribly.

Unless you're in the front on Nemesis I just don't think it's a wow anymore
Also Wickerman and Octonauts are on my to do list stilllllll

Except it's better in the back seat? Front is certainly a must ride at least once just see the terrain interactions, but back is sooo much better.

Granted, being from across the pond, I haven't been spoiled by countless visits to AT so Nemesis is still very special to me.

Nah not for me - the power of Nemesis is in the interactions with the landscape, and from an row but the front you can't get the full experience of this.
But I know some love the back, each to their own I guess! I'm the same for Black Mamba - front or nothing.

Fair enough, the landscaping is done phenomenally but the intensity kinda trumps it for me. There's definitely a difference between the front and the back and the whip you get in the back was just incredible.

No offence but just looking at this list angers me abit!
 
Yeah the Mini Apple was quality.

Seriously though, it may be worth mentioning specifically what you actually disagree with!
1. Thirteen that high? Personally i don't like it .
2. the Smiler in some eyes is bad (i enjoy it) and lower than Spinball Wizzer (which if a roller coaster went it wouldn't be bothered if that went.)
3 Rita lower than the ORA is mad. its rough but id say its better than most of the rides at Blackpool! (looking at you Avalanche and infusion.)
4 a minor one this i think that runaway mine train is better than bestie?
5 also air is well mediocre and would be a bit lower especially with VR.
