    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.

    I mean, I don't know if you can handle intense. Looks like you like to be asleep during rides. :rolleyes::D

    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

    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
