You can't accept DBGT - but you could throw in Scorpion Express if you need to bump it up. 

if you got really desperate we often argue if Kobra is a coaster or not.....(I mean, it's not, but my daughter won't accept that, and I kind of see her point.....)

Both Speed and Megafobia at Oakwood should probably be included
