Most famous defunct coaster collection?

Recommended Posts

Bavarian Beetle, Bat, Demon, King Cobra, Ghoster Ghoster, Son of Beast, Firehawk, and now Vortex.

Would you argue KI to have the most famous collection of defunct coasters or should that title be given to a different park?

1. It's Bavarian Beetle, not babrian. lol

2. I agree 110% with you on this. Son of Beast and Vortex definitely add a lot of popularity to the defunct lineup.

It is a shame I never got to ride the Barbarian Beetle. :P

I think Kings Island wins this category by a long shot.  The Bat and Son of Beast alone are enough.  

My guess for a runner up would be Busch Gardens Williamsburg.  Drachen Fire was a huge failure, and people loved Big Bad Wolf.

How about Six Flags Great America's?

Iron Wolf- B&M's first coaster

Shockwave- once one of the tallest coasters in the world and tied for most inversions at 7 for a bit

Deja Vu- One of a handful of Vekoma Giant Inverted Boomerangs ever built

Rolling Thunder, Tidal Wave and Z-Force- part of SIX's infamous ride rotation

Or Six Flags Great Adventure-

Great American Scream Machine- one of the tallest coasters in the world and first to 7 inversions

Viper- First heartline coaster

Ultra Twister- the only one of its kind in the US

Batman and Robin: The Chiller- first racing/dueling LIM coasters

Rolling Thunder- one of the racing coasters built in the 70s along side the likes of Racer, Racer 75, etc.

Lightning Loops- only pair of interlocking Arrow shuttle looping coasters
