Best Coaster YouTube Channel

Recommended Posts

I don't really like any mainstream roller coaster channels, overtime they aren't very entertaining and I prefer podcast style media about roller coasters than anything, so I have to plug this Youtube, ElToroRyan, it's very underrated and I find the content to be pretty entertaining. https://www.youtube.com/user/Blasianskater. Then for No Limits 2 stuff it's for sure XYZ Coaster https://www.youtube.com/user/XYZcoaster. Then I really wish Theme Park Maniacs was still a thing... I really miss watching his videos and miss him in general https://www.youtube.com/user/themeparkmaniacs

I happen to like Coasterbob62.  The problem with many of the millennial channels is that they have jerky camera movements, spend too much time with the camera focused on them and their opinion and many of them sound like Valley girls.  I do appreciate some of the behind the scenes stuff some of them do, and I like some reviews when they are posted after editing and the sugar rush is over from the day at the park.  

And I can't stand the over dramatic social media posts where links are provided and they say things like "BREAKING NEWS" or "THIS JUST IN."

I like Coasterbob62 a lot as well. You can tell he puts a lot of time and work into his videos. When it comes to POVs I usually stick with the park's channel or CoasterForce. My all around amusement park channel would probably be TheTimTracker, he does a variety of different things and he's awesome to listen to.

Does Defunctland count? Kevin Perjurer's videos are some of the best put-together and most entertaining videos around (period, not just theme park-related), with great explanations of ride/theme park history. 

Fun fact: a lot of them are very heavily based on the writings of a member here (@bkroz)! Check his stuff out here: https://www.themeparktourist.com/features/20171129/33460/theme-park-tourist-depth-collections

^ Same. As a general rule, I'm not a fan of any channel that takes unauthorized/illegal POVs.

My overall favorite has to be Defunctland (if that counts). Lots of great info, and insight. Essentially, its videos are like mini-documentaries that recount the history of famous defunct rides/attractions....

The accounts on Son of Beast and Tomb Raider are quite definitive, and as mentioned above, a lot of the info for those come from none other than our own @bkroz!

Theme Park Worldwide has some of the best content I’ve ever seen. Only problem is he covers mostly European parks. Other than that I’ve yet to see anyone match the quality he produces. If I ranked them my list would follow as:

1- Theme Park Worldwide

2- Coaster Studios 

3- Coaster Net

4- In the Loop

5- Midway Mayhem

Bonus: Amusement Insiders are very good. They are starting to come onto the scene big. I also like CoasterBob62. I just wish he talked more in his videos. He rarely says anything.
