From what i've ridden, i've got quite a few close compeitors.

Nemesis, Montu, Dueling Dragons, Kumba, Hulk, Colossus and Daemonen would have to be my favourites however if I rode it I bet it would be Expedition GeForce amazing coaster.

I don't know really. The best coasters ive ever been on are: Colossus, Nemesis, Nemesis Inferno, Rita, Oblivion and Air which are worthy. Of those my top 3 in order are Nemesis, Rita and Colossus. Im going to America next year for the first time so ill have the chance to go on rides such as Montu, Sheikra and The Hulk. Also the new ride at TP to look forward to. I cant really say my favorite in the world, but of what ive ridden, Nemesis deff.

Millenium Force was fantastic and so was Top Thrill Dragster but it was rather short. The floorless coaster, Dominator at Geauga Lake was really good with a huge loop and the ones at alton are all good as well so i can't really decide.

Thanks

Expedition Ge Force - any day of the week, it absoloutly blow'sany ride in the UK and the USA that I've ridden out of the water, smooth, intense, insane and let's not even mess around with the amount of airtime - lot's - constantly, every hill and every drop, you simply cannot beat that kind of coaster experience.

:D <----- Dodgy guy with hat?

Not a bad list there though, if you're rating the best coasters from AT in order and 1 from DMP. lol.
Have you been to TP or BPB, i'm sure if you went there, a couple of those coasters would knock off a couple of your current top 6.

I would have to say Rita from Alton, I have only ridden it once, due to a series of technical faults, However, I would have to say it was one of the best rides I have have ever been on. I think that Nemesis is a great ride, However, I sort of found it didn't live up to expectations. When you watch it go round before you ride it, Its looks scarier than when you are actually on it in my opinion. Anyway, Rita for me :)

Its overrated I think. Since they decided to hammer the mag trims its been a lot more tame. Also the ride operations are pathetic. About 5 min dispatch per train. Silly.
