  • Your favorite coasters

    It seems that the last few weeks have seen a decided jump in "Non-Disney Park" threads, and I think it's awesome.

    And since some other threads have been hijacked talking about our favorite coasters I thought why not start a thread about our favorite coasters. I've personally been on 130 coasters.

    My Top 10 Coasters overall:

    Phoenix - Knoebels
    Storm Runner - Hersheypark
    Nitro - Six Flags Great Adventure
    Goliath - Six Flags Magic Mountain
    Superman Ultimate Flight - Six Flags Great Adventure / Six Flags Over Georgia
    Lightning Racer - Hersheypark
    Xcelerator - Knott's Berry Farm
    Mr. Freeze - Six Flags Over Texas
    Top Gun - Paramounts Great America
    Kingda Ka - Six Flags Great Adventure

    Honorable mention (or rides I would love to ride lots and lots of times):

    Great Bear - Hersheypark
    Deja Vu - SFMM
    Steel Force - Dorney Park
    Georgia Scorcher - SFOG
    Riddlers Revenge - SFMM
    Superman Krypton Coaster - SFFT
    Medusa - SFGADV
    Medusa - SFMW
    California Screamin' - DCA
    Mr. Freeze - SFOT
    V2 - SFMW
    Mindbender - SFOG
    Shockwave - SFOT

    Nice list, Gregg.

    I've frequented this section since it started, but most of my posts concern USH, LegoLand and Knott's.

    Having had back surgery, most coasters these days are off of my "to do" list.

    Keep up the great coaster threads though. At least I can enjoy reading about them!

            My favorite is Tatsu over at Magic Mountain. X is a real close second. I also really enjoyed Rock n' Rollercoaster at the MGM. So smooth and so well themed. Racing around listening to Aerosmith music is a plus too. Mostly I like smooth rollercoasters that don't make me feel like I'm going to pass out.

              Just remember without a well written Disney Villain, there would be no point in the Heroes and the Princesses. Have you hugged a Disney Villain today? :love:

                      Only one coaster that still excites me, Millennium Force at Cedar Point.

                        Comet is without a doubt one of the weirdest coasters I have ever ridden. Looking at the lift (which is somewhat curved) you are led to believe that it's going to be a really rough ride.

                        But the ride is great.

                        Actually Hersheypark has a great selection of coasters that are just fun to ride.

                            Re: Your favorite coasters

                            -The Beast - PKI
                            -The Italian Job Stunt Track - PKI
                            -Avatar: The Last Airbender - PKI
                            -Any ride at DL and DCA
                            -Superman's Great Escape - SFMM
                            -The Big Shot - Las Vegas

                            I have really only ever been to SFMM (once for a day in 2002) and PKI, other than DL and DCA a few times. I'm not much of a thrill coaster kind of person, i'm deathly afraid of heights. The only reason I even went on the last 2 mentioned was because my best friend tricked me onto it.
                            Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

                              the Corkscrew, any one do this when it was at knotts? it was moved to Silverwood theme park in Idaho in 1990. I was told not to do this coaster, it was to rough on the body, whats your take on this?
