YOUR Top Ten Coasters

Recommended Posts

I did some searching and surprisingly a topic like this did not come up. What are your top ten coasters? Wooden and steel.

1.) Millennium Force (Which until last week was at number 2-3)

2.) The Beast

3.) Magnum XL-200

4.) The Voyage

5.) Maverick

6.) Top Thrill Dragster

7.) Thunderhead

8.) Apollo's Chariot

9.) Diamondback

10.) Somewhat of a tie between Ride of Steel at Darien Lake and Raptor

3. The Voyage

4. Magnum XL-200

5. Diamondback

6. Top Thrill Dragster

Here's my Top 10 List. Remember, I have only been to Kings Island, Indiana Beach (back in 1999),and Holiday World so far, so I don't have tons and tons to choose from...

#1-The Beast @ Kings Island

#2-The Voyage @ Holiday World

#3-Diamondback @ Kings Island

#4-The Legend @ Holiday World

#5-The Raven @ Holiday World

#6-Flight of Fear @ Kings Island

#7-Vortex @ Kings Island

#8-The Racer @ Kings Island (Red Racer>Blue Racer BTW)

#9-Flight Deck @ Kings Island

#10-Hoosier Hurricane @ Indiana Beach

Honorable Mentions (Ride's I've really liked but they missed the list): Backlot Stunt Coaster, Firehawk, Adventure Express, and Invertigo.

Very likely to start changing as I visit more parks, but as of right now, that's my list. If I could count Water Coasters, Wildebeest @ Holiday World would take the #3 spot, and knock off the Hoosier Hurricane.

I'm sorry but I just really hate ranking wood and steel TOGETHER. I just can't find a way to really compare them. To me both wood and steel offer a completely different ride experience. So I'm just going to rank mine seperately. I just can't seem to break the 'material barrier', if you will...

Top Ten Steel Coasters:

1. Maverick

2. Nitro

3. Millennium Force

4. Top Thrill Dragster

5. Diamondback

6. Fahrenheit

7. California Screamin'

8. Flight of Fear

9. Space Mountain

10. Storm Runner

Top Ten Wood Coasters:

1. The Voyage

2. El Toro

3. The Beast

4. Lightning Racer

5. The Legend

6. Son of Beast

7. Tornado

8. The Comet

9. The Raven

10. The Racer
