    Oh well :p:cool:

    I really want to ride Lech now that everyone has said it is super intense. Really intrigued!

    Snoo has said most of what I might have said in response, but thanks for the answer. It has definitely been the case in my experience that enthusiasts who’ve done a lot of parks on both continents tend to prefer N Amer by about two to one, but your answer is interesting to me. I’m hoping to start finding out for myself next year with a big Euro coaster trip.

    Inversions and airtime aren't everything! It's a marmite coaster, obviously you're not hip enough to "get it". Haha I also have skyrush in my top 10 and didn't find i305 that bad sooo

    1. Steel Vengeance - Cedar Point
    2. Lightning Rod - Cedar Point
    3. Outlaw Run - Silver Dollar City
    4. Goliath - Six Flags Great America
    5. Voyage - Holiday World
    6. Superman: The Ride/Bizarro - Six Flags New England
    7. Boulder Dash - Lake Compounce
    8. El Toro - Six Flags Great Adventure
    9. Maverick - Cedar Point
    10. Storm Chaser - Kentucky Kingdom

    11. Banshee - Kings Island
    12. X2 - Six Flags Magic Mountain
    13. Tatsu - Six Flags Magic Mountain
    14. The Joker - Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

    15. Mako - Sea World Orlando
    16. Thunderbird - Holiday World
    17. Wicked Cyclone - Six Flags New England
    18. Skyrush - Hersheypark
    19. Roar-o-saurus - Story Land
    20. Leviathan - Canada's Wonderland

    21. Mine Blower - Fun Spot America

    22. Top Thrill Dragster - Cedar Point
    23. Ravine Flyer II - Waldameer
    24. Phoenix - Knoebels
    25. Goliath - Six Flags Over Georgia
    26. Flight Deck - California's Great America

    28. Montana Triple Loop - La Feria Chapultepec Magico
    29. Lightning Run - Kentucky Kingdom
    30. Alpengeist - Busch Gardens Williamsburg


    New for 2018 are in bold, new for 2017 are in italics. I considered posting top 50 but it would have ended up being quite a large post. It's sort of frustrating looking through this list and thinking how could something end up so low, but then I scroll up and review of what's ranked above it.

    I've (finally) been trying to rank everything I've been on and it's turned into quite a task to sift through the mediocrity of a bunch of old Arrow loopers, mine trains, :emoji_poop: Vekomas, kiddie coasters, etc. I am beginning to notice some trends though. I may export my list from Coaster Counter into Excel such that I can run some further analysis by ride type.

    I knew these family GGs were supposed to be good, but I didn't know they were quite that good! Makes me excited to ride one for myself some day!

    They're fantastic. I've only been on Wooden Warrior and Twister but both are great rides, definitely not THAT high for me (I have yet to be on Roar however), but definitely marathon worthy.

    I think I have Wooden Warrior somewhere around 90 or so. It's quite good - tons of fun, very smooth, and has some great airtime, but Roar-o-saurus is in another league. It focuses completely on airtime that almost rivals what you'd find on an RMC.

    Objectively speaking, not really. But I enjoyed my ass off on it and it was genuinely one of the few coasters in recent years that has legitimately scared me. :D

    So, I've done some (as in very little) thinking, and I've come up with a finalized Top 10, but the top 20/25 is not finalized yet, but I probably shouldn't finalize it until I reach 100 credits, but I'm gonna share it anyways to know what I can expect in my top 20.

    1. Steel Vengeance
    2. Twisted Timbers
    3. Fury 325
    4. Maverick
    5. Millennium Force
    6. Top Thrill Dragster
    7. Mystic Timbers
    8. Diamondback
    9. Raptor (Cedar Point)
    10. Beast

    11. Magnum XL 200
    12. Shivering Timbers
    13. Apollo's Chariot
    14. Griffon
    15. Dominator
    16. Valravn
    17. Alpengeist
    18. Banshee
    19. Afterburn
    20. Intimidator 305

    21. Verbolten
    22. Firehawk
    23. Rougarou
    24. Intimidator (Carowinds)
    25. Tempesto

    Mind you, 11-25 is not really finalized, so there may be a weird choice or 2. However, Shivering Timbers, Dominator, and Beast are definitely in my top 20 as of now.

    1-7: Looks solid.
    8: Each to their own.
    9-18: Fair enough.
    19: I'd have had that higher.
    20: Oop, we're in the :emoji_poop:.

    :p

    Good work sorting that lot out though, @Zek_Teh_Kek, it's always quite satisfying to get the list dialed in.

    I mean, considering it's a low rent cross between two superior rides in Maverick and Millennium Force, I don't think so. :p

    I think I have it down around 50 or so. It's a good ride...there's just better out there.


    Because Banshee is better than Afterburn.

    It could've been lower. It's one of the most forgettable rides I've ridden. I remember it being very intense, and it was fun, but the airtime was underwhelming and the constant positive Gs weren't the most comfortable. To be fair, I only got 1 ride on it. We were running low on time, and a re-ride on I305 wasn't exactly what I wanted to do right after I got off. It ended up being a long process of waiting for Backlot to reopen, then waiting in line for drinks for too :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing long, and then waiting for my parents and my sister to ride the dang ferris wheel, and then finally heading back to Twisted Timbers, buying a shirt, and getting 2 more rides on TT. Guess I should NOT let my sister choose where we sit (towards the front in the middle. Same thing happened with Afterburn. Idgaf if the line is shorter, I want to ride in the back! I gotta stop listening to my sister lol.

    Yes, it really is. But I swear my sister ruins every ride for me. It felt near forceless when I rode in the middle!

    Thanks Hixee! I've dabbled in creating a top 10 list, but have never settled on one list. It's great to finally have one sorted out (and for me to be absolutely sure on it)!
