    I actually have yet to visit the park. The lack of substance as I originally noted in the park as a whole is what has held me back. I had the same issue with Canadas Wonderland as it's quite the trip for a heaping of meh, which CW ended up being.

    Canada’s Wonderland would be worth the trek if they had only one coaster — Behemoth — and Valleyfair is exactly the same with Renegade. Get over there and prepare to have your “mine blown” (and yet also somehow keep your expectations low so that you’re more ready to be blown away).

    @Snoo Stop talking crap and get your ass to Valleyfair this Halloween, Wild thing and Hi Roller are both decent, there's an Arrow mouse(which gets a bad queue) and easily a top 20 ride in anyone's book in Renegade.
    I look forward to you humbly crawling back in here apologising profusely.

    Tom, listen. If you want cuddles so bad, all you had to do was ask for it.

    Mate, I want those cuddles, but you're 3,854 miles away from me, so cuddles will have to wait.
    You know what can't wait?

    Renegade.

    1) Wodan - unbelievably good in the dark.
    2) Apocalypse
    3) Wicker Man
    - better than some people give it credit for, great theme.
    4) Joris en de Draak (Vuur)
    5) Joris en de Draak (Water)
    - these are outstanding family rides, 1.1m height limit and they make a big deal of the winner/loser which is fun. However they don't really offer much for the thrillseeker.

    1. Lightning Racer (It races, it duels, whats not to love? Also the first big coaster I rode.)
    2. Thunderhead (I love the twister layout and the fly by)
    3. American Thunder (Tons of airtime)
    4. Apocalypse (Underrated, give decent airtime)
    5. White Lightning (Who doesn't love an out and back?)
    6. InvadR (Nice family woodie)
    7. Roar (It's not a bad ride at all)
    8. Gwazi (It's getting RMC'd)
    9. Wildcat (Ouch)

    Update:

    1. Python in Bamboo Forest - Absolute beast. Goes on forever and never lets up. We bonded.

    Until the above, I found all GCIs to be a very similar experience and quite difficult to separate. They were always very good, but never killer. So the rest are rather close together.

    2 & 3. Joris en de Draaks - Effects, music, racing and pacing elevate these above the others.
    4. Jungle Dragon - Big, fun and terrainy, but not quite their A-game.
    5. Wodan - Again a bit of theming and music help it stand out. Also gave me that joyous laughing effect throughout.
    6. Heidi - Short but fun.
    7. El Toro - Short but not quite as fun.
    8. Desert Rally - Fun but not quite as short.
    9. Gold Striker - Another case of not doing enough with it's size, but to be honest they've all become very forgettable between Wodan and Troy.
    10. Troy - Reputation had grown by this one and it was the only one with any expectations. Doesn't do enough with it's size, not as well paced. Still great.
    11. Wicker Man - Meh.
