Rank the Gravity Group coasters

Interesting list! Also, I find it interesting that you pick up on Gravity Group coasters rattling; the only one I've ridden is Mine Blower, and while it certainly wasn't the smoothest of coasters in the front row, I wouldn't have said the rattling majorly affected the experience for me, and I certainly don't have the highest of roughness tolerances by any means! However, it is probably worth noting that I only rode it in the front; is it really that much worse in the back?
Yes, to me it is sometimes night and day between the back and the front, the front being always smoother. Before, I used to always go on the back for the airtime on a gravity group but not anymore. But hence why I did Mine Blower only one time and on the back row (should have done the front).
At some point I thought I was just being picky after hearing everyone praising Gravity Group and me not liking them that much and even having headaches. I didn't have any problems with the GCI but I always got assigned to the 1st row for almost all of them. And then I did T-Express and understood what was a genuine smooth and exceptionnal wooden (front or back are both as smooth as a good steel coaster). So nope, I don't agree, Gravity Group is not that good and I don't know why everyone is so forgetful of their roughness. Either this or they are very moody coasters. Which wouldn't surprise me as woodens are always very moody, specially the badly maintained ones in China.

Mine Blower is, while a bit on the rattly side, perfectly bearable from a smoothness perspective in the front; I'd recommend trying it the next time you're in Florida, as you can normally pick your row quite easily on Mine Blower, it would seem! I rode in the front for my only ride on it, so I'm not sure if I would have liked it as much had I ridden further back...

1 - Voyage - Delicious ride, a night ride on this bastard is on my to-do list
2 - Wooden Warrior - I loved this gem, unfortunately I was in a hurry so I only had 2 rides but man it's fun.
3 - Twister - Very re-rideable, lovely pops of airtime and just keeps on going.

No such thing as a poor Gravity Group imo.

I'm gonna hold off on putting together a ranking for another couple months. Gonna be adding a couple other creds soon (Ravine Flyer II and Kentucky Flyer) and also getting another chance at Voyage. But also, right now I'm really hesitant to say Voyage is my favorite GG. It's definitely an incredible ride when it considering the pacing, size, and location, but I just didn't fall in love with it like others have.

The others I've done are Roar-O-Saurus and Wooden Warrior. RoS is the other contender for my favorite GG. I got so many rides on that thing and it was a blast. Roar might be more consistent and just plain fun, and Voyage is more exciting. I really just need more Voyage rides, we'll see.

Oh, Wooden Warrior is definitely at the bottom though (still good though!).
