Here are mine ☺️

Pre-enthusiast

Little Niles - Cat-O-Pillar - Paultons Park:
My most ridden coaster easily, my parents would just leave me on here for hours, they would sit on a bench, chat, eat, read and every so often ask if I had enough but usually I would laugh and carry on, what a fun little coaster.
2002-2004 - Big Thunder Mountain - DP: Beautiful rollercoaster, and when I was little it fascinated me, I loved the other coasters in the park but this one stayed with me as an amazing ride.
2004-2006 - Duelling Dragons - IA: I really liked dragons and castles when I was little and this ride had great forces, theming and the duelling made it really special, oddly I think I preferred the ice side.
2006-2012 - Stealth - TP: First ride in the back was good but the front was amazing, it took my breath away and on a cold wet day me and my dad marathoned it getting front row rides over and over going on it about 12 times I think, that launch still holds up and I think the coaster is underrated but it is all about the front.
2012-2017 - Nemesis - AT: Always liked it but as I got older I appreciated it more and more, a night ride after a long day of the coaster warming up finally put it on top and its still my No1 in the UK......sadly

Enthusiast

2017-2018 - Ghostrider - Knotts:
Truly amazing woodie, it had been re-tracked not to long ago and it was so smooth and forceful, on the day we went it was a walk on all day and when flying through the timbers something clicked and I wondered if people enjoyed coasters as much as I do leading me here, so it hold a special place for me as the coaster that made me become an enthusiast.
4/6/2018 - 8/6/2018 - Skyrush - Hersheypark: I had never had anything come close to this in force, it left me shaken and have no words, truly an unbelievable creation, however it only lasted 4 days as my No1
8/6/18-Current - Steel Vengance - CP: Not sure what I can say that has not been said already, i just hope you can get on it at some point, its unbelievably brilliant.

Good question, probably something like this...

Nemesis - Towers was a rare treat and Nemesis was always my favourite coaster there

Shambhala - Port Aventura was my first park abroad and Dragon Kahn was always the highlight until Shambhala popped up

Taron - Inspired me to travel further afield

Steel Vengeance - Genuinely don't think this will ever be topped. There will never be a coaster built that gives this much sustained airtime over such a long duration

My orders been:

Nemesis - (probably first ridden in 1996-7ish)
Collossos (heide park) - first ridden on the CF live there - 2009
Bizarro sfne (cf live again - 2012)
Skyrush (First ridden on the same live, but a place or 2 below bizarro, rerode in about 2017, and upgraded) - It's gonna take something special to knock this one off!

I didn't start actually ranking coasters until late 2019, but I remember that feeling of coming to the brake run knowing that you've just done something great.

2002 - 2005: Rock 'n' Rollercoaster, DHS
I was always into rollercoasters since a very early age, but this was before I became a proper goon, I still love this coaster, not enough coasters offer on-board audio.

2006 - 2007 : Kraken, SeaWorld Orlando
This was my first coaster as an enthusiast and it turned me into a B&M fanboy.

2008 - 2016: Sheikra, Busch Gardens Tampa
A long 8 year rein. I love B&M dive coasters, even the likes of Shambhala could not top it, although most enthusiasts would disagree with me on this one, I still think it's a fantastic ride.

2017 - Present: Helix, Liseberg
After riding Blue Fire and Cheetah Hunt, I wasn't expecting much from Helix, to me the ride looked like a cross between the two and neither had completely really blown me away, but I remember getting off this and thinking "wow, this is in a whole new league of coasters"

It is very likely that something slipped through, but this is what I remember for sure. My first ride on Silver star was with 13 or 14, BFMPBNS2 was with 18 years - just in case anyone wonders why some weird coasters might appear. We all started as GP at some point, didn’t we?

1: Alpenexpress Enzian @Europapark
2: Wild Wild West (now Bandit) @Movie Park Germany
3: Colossos @ Heidepark
4: Silver Star @ Europapark
5: blue fire megacoaster powered by Gazprom (now powered by Nordstream 2) @ Europapark
6: Taron @ Phantasialand (was my number 80 and kicked my off my enthusiasm)
7: Hyperion @ Energylandia (Standing strong since 2018)

That’s the same amount of characters as if you were to type the words “blue fire”
Blue Fire was a roller coaster at Parque Norte in Columbia, the ride at Europa Park is called blue fire megacoaster powered by Nordstream 2. The park spent hundreds of hours to find a good, unique and compelling name, I think we as enthusiasts should value the hours put into the name and not call it like another (and most likely inferior) ride.

It’s like you’ve written this as some sort of exam question: ‘how many reasons can you come up with to dispute / critique this paragraph?’ I’ve totted up 8 reasons, if anyone can beat that.

Just ‘Blue Fire’ is fine👌
