1. Wildfire
2. Helix
3. Icon
4. Nemesis
5. The Smiler
6. Balder
7. The Swarm
8. Stealth
9. Kanonen
10. Lisebergbanan

Sure they aren't all the "best coasters" I've ridden some better (Saw, Revolution, Oblivion, Twister (Grona Lund) Jetline and Wickerman could all have easily got that 10th spot. I've ridden "better than them" too but in terms of my top 10 they're were they are because I found them fun, and enjoyed them the most. They're also my most reridable. I put the top 8 in a different league, Kanonen was massively underrated and theres a gap between that and 10th, but 10th place could be anything. Lisebergbanan is a classic, smooth, high capacity, thrilling, quite intense and the station and landscape is beautiful. I'm sure when it was first built they only had to chop down something tiny like 3 trees.

Also Sweden is probably the best country for the ratio of top coasters per rollercoaster and Valkyria will probably make the list.

I'm pretty embarrassed about my list...
1. Wicker Man- Alton Towers

2- Grand National- Blackpool Pleasure Beach

3- Megafobia- Oakwood (Wales)

4- Avalanche- Blackpool Pleasure Beach

5- Vampire- Chessington WOA

6- TH13TEEN- Alton Towers

7- The Dragon- Legoland Windsor

8- Rattlesnake- Chessington WOA

9- Steeplechase- Blackpool Pleasure Beach

10- Big Dipper- Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Honourable mentions- Scorpion Express at Chessington WOA and Nickelodeon Streak at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

This is theming and coaster layout combined. Megafobia and Grand National are very close.

The coasters are all in England unless otherwise stated.

And finally- yes, my favourite type of rollercoaster is a woodie.
I can see why the beornen worship Wicker Man

Have always said to myself I don't particularly do lists, but thought I'd give it a go.

1: Steel Vengeance
2: El Toro
2: Fury 325
3: Superman (SFNE)
4: Nitro
5: Montu
6: Expedition GeForce
7: Alpengeist
8: Helix
9: Bizarro
10: Iron Rattler
10a: Nemesis

I didn't think anything would ever top El Toro, but the sheer amount of elements SV throws at you is nuts. The length, and the fact that every part of the coaster is a feature in itself, makes it hard to beat.

#praywegetoneatthorpe

Nemesis should not compare to many of the rides in the list, but it will always be such an iconic coaster to me. It absolutely blew my socks off the first time I saw it. Not many rides have ever done that.
