I think you really can't say about the Smiler yet as it's only been open a month. It's really got to be judged after a few years.
I still think Nemesis is still king.

Yes this is true but you can't not include the latest ride.

Nemesis is pulling ahead now … but are you telling me it will take the best part of 20 years (which is pretty much how long nemesis has been going) for the smiler to be the best?

Oh by the way I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has so far voted. Nobody has yet chosen the RMT!

Team edit: please don't double post.

Yeah I think The Smiler is a female because most of the AT enthusiasts think that Nemesis is a female so in my opinion The Smiler is a female! :)

Is it me or are we going a bit off track, here? Debating the gender of a roller coaster?

You may laugh, but last Fright night that was the best coaster in the dark for me, followed by Th13teen. The other coasters were lit up too much by flood lights
If you go down to the woods today

Gonna have to be The Smiler for me...the only ride where being in the queue line is exciting.
The ride itself? Well amazing isn't enough enough to state that colosal beast of twisted black track.
Can't wait to ride it in the dark.
