Top 10 steel coasters that aren't B&M or Intamin


Giga Poster
I'll give it a try! :shock:

1 - Saw: The Ride (Thorpe Park)
2 - Space Mountain: Mission 2 (Disneyland Paris)
3 - Stampida (PortAventura)
4 - Grand National (Blackpool Pleasure Beach)
5 - Vortex (Siam Park City)
6 - Pepsi Max Big One (Blackpool Pleasure Beach)
7 - Irn-Bru Revolution (Blackpool Pleasure Beach)
8 - Tomahawk (PortAventura)
9 - Boomerang (Siam Park City)
10 - G-Force (Drayton Manor)

It's as accurate as I can get it. Saw: The Ride's up there surprisingly, It's actually my favourite coaster in the entire park seconded by Nemesis: Inferno.

^Well done.

I think it would be interesting to see what your top 10 steel coaster lists would look like if you ignored B&M and Intamin!

Ah well, someone was bound to do it at some point.

To be fair, KDGrizzly4Life beat him to the punch.
Just goes to show how much people read previous posts, since Mike also pointed this out & corrected KDGrizzly4Life on the previous page. :p

^And I'm going to let him off because he has Vortex at Siam Park City on his list, which is really, really good.

Ooops, sorry I mis-read the topic title and original post. :oops:

My bad, it's actually quite difficult choosing this top 10, I put a lot of effort into just thinking and sorting the rides I have been on into an order, I'll edit my post later.

And yes Vortex is by far the best SLC I have been on, especially when I recently destroyed my ears on Infusion a few weeks ago, Vortex seems really smooth! :)

^Colorado Adventure. I think it was originally called that unless they've kept the full name I'm not sure. :?


Giga Poster

I think the official name is "Colorado Adventure" but since it was Michale Jacksons favourite coaster it got nicknamed "The Michael Jackson Thrill Ride" and eventually the park added that name to the coaster sign. Talk about good promotion for the ride! :--D
1. Mr. Freeze- Six Flags St. Louis
2. Flight of Fear- Kings Island
3. Flight of Fear- Kings Dominion
4. Magnum XL-200
5. Powder Keg- Silver Dollar City

I didn't even account for the rest haha, how sad. My rankings only go up to a top 40 or something.
