^Boo. Splitting your top coasters into wood and steel rankings is a cop out.


Thank you sir.
 
Re: Top 10(ish): 2015 Edition - page 27

I only split them to make it easier when I make my actual top ten. So here's the dealio... Although Phoenix will be a reride tomorrow so hopefully that doesn't throw a wrench in :p.

1. Wicked Cyclone
2. El Toro
3. Voyage
4. Skyrush
5. Bizarro
6. Iron Rattler
7. Boardwalk Bullet
8. Boulder Dash
9. Outlaw Run
10. Fury 325

I hate that Phoenix isn't in there because it's just amazing. It could be a number 9 instead of Outlaw but in the end, Outlaw is a bit faster and more relentless which gives it the edge. Fury is just ridiculous and has that sense of speed as well.

EDIT - Missed 1!!

And after New York etc. mark 2 - the top 10 has changed a bit!

1 - Skyrush - Loved it three yrs ago, liked it even more 2 weeks ago! Phenomenal ride - There's nothing quite like the extreme airtime on this.

2 - Wicked Cyclone - A very good ride - lovely airtime, great inversions, smooth (as you'd expect for such a new ride) and utterly relentless!

3 - Bizarro (SFNE) - Exceeded all my expectations back in 2012 - slipped down a little this year - still awesome though.

4 - Colossos - The great ride on the denmark / Germany trip was backed up by a really good day there last year - consistent ride throughout, and just enough character to stop it being dull - I can't believe some people say it's too rough!

5 - Sliver Star - Back in 2012 it was running beautifully - Consistent air throughout the whole train, perhaps a little too "polite" for some, but just great fun and so rerideable

6 - Roar-O-Saurus A very impressive little coaster with loads of airtime!

7 - Nemesis - Still awesome after 20+ years - just has the perfect combination of intensity, and those back seat rides..... '

8 - Piraten / Alpina Blitz - Can't separate the 2, so I'm gonna be controversial and call it a tie!

9 - Shambhala - More about "speed" than airtime, and that ampersand turnaround is yummy!

10- Dominator - Difficult to put my finger on what I enjoyed so much about this (and actually, I may prefer superman at parc warner)

Griffon and Maverick have been edged out


El Toro is top 20, But I think that Colossos is just more enjoyable

1. Ravine Flyer II
2. Maverick
3. X2
4. Skyrush
5. Outlaw Run
6. Thunderhead
7. Fury 325

Huh?

I've got Goliath three places above Shambhala, I'm confused?

I said it's better than Shambhala and put it above accordingly in my rankings.

Not 100% sure Americans get the word "irony".

^^ I might've misread it, but it looked as if you thought Goliath was worse than Shambhala. I don't really know now.
