My coaster count is pretty low as I've only ridden 36 so far (I know, I'm just a teenager and I can't drive yet so stop laughing). But I've ridden enough to know that Intimidator being better than NIGHTHAWK and Afterburn is just a fact.

my coaster count is only at 53 so far. Fun fact, I liked Space Mountain a lot more than I thought I would.

I might update mine after memorial day when I’ve ridden Steel Vengeance and Mystic Timbers.

I finally got to ride Rock N' Roller Coaster the other day. It was a LOT smoother than I thought it would be. I really enjoyed it.

Am I the only one who finds it basically impossible to rank coasters? My count is 163. I always have trouble picking an overall favorite roller coaster but if people ask me I usually say either The Beast, Intimidator, or Maverick.

Just for fun, one roller coaster that I absolutely love (maybe top 10 worthy??) is Ragin' Cajun at SFA! This may be even more controversial than Nighthawk haha. I think it's the only spinning wild mouse coaster I've ever been on but I just thought it was so much fun.

My Top 5 changes all the time, based on different experiences I have on rides. My Top 5 is extremely basic though, with rides like Steel Vengeance, Fury, Twisted Timbers, Voyage, Lightning Rod in there.

Period.


I still need to get on that. I have heard nothing but fantastic things about it. I am most likely making a trip up to Kings Island and Cedar Point in July, so I should be able to experience it then.

Steel Vengeance looks absolutely insane, and I can't wait to catch a ride on it.
