Your Top Ten Coasters

Fri May 02, 2014 1:38 pm

So, after seeing a thread on the other forum I thought it'd be cool if we all listed our favourite coasters that we have ridden from all the parks all around the world (I've done a quick search to see if this thread already exists and I can't find one so apologies if it does)

Anyway, I'll get us started:

1) The Smiler - Alton Towers

2) Nemesis - Alton Towers

3) Montu - Busch Gardens Tampa

4) Sheikra - Busch Gardens Tampa

5) The Incredible Hulk - Islands of Adventure

6) Oblivion - Alton Towers

7) Ice Dragon/ Hungarian Horntail - Islands of Adventure

8 ) Kraken - SeaWorld Orlando

9) Kumba - Busch Gardens Tampa

10) Air - Alton Towers

Obviously my top 10 will/may change with the more parks that I visit as in comparison to most people the number of parks I have visited is very small :)

1. El Toro, Six Flags Great Adventure
2. Shambhala, Port Aventura
3. Nitro, Six Flags Great Adventure
4. Incredible Hulk, Islands of Adventure
5. Nemesis, Alton Towers
6. SheiKra, Busch Gardens Africa
7. The Swarm, Thorpe Park
8. Kingda Ka, Six Flags Great Adventure
9. Kraken, Seaworld
10. Manta, Seaworld

9 and 10 are weird, because from a technical and thematic standpoint, Manta is a better ride, but Kraken is so damn re-rideable! So it just edges it.

1) Nemesis
2) Nemesis Inferno
3) The Swarm (it seems to be getting more forceful every time i ride - love it!)
4) Stealth
5) TH13TEEN
6) The Smiler (would be number 2. but too rough to re-ride lots unfortunately)
7) Colossus (this could be in my top 5 but the restraints are horrible!)
8) Oblivion
9) Sonic Spinball / Dragons Fury
10) X

I have got rollercoasters from Florida, but considering i have only been once, and that was back in 2005, it's hard for me to compare, although the standout rollercoasters for me were The Hulk & Montu. Rollercoasters at BPB or Drayton Manor don't fit in my top 10, although Ben 10 would probably be number 11!
