    Only been on 2 and they were both class and are in my all time top 10 and easily the best woodies I have been on in my limited experience

    Mystic Timbers just edges Wickerman for me as its a bit more thrilling though Wickermans theme brings it close

    1. White Lightning - Just missed my expectations (based on what I had previously heard), but it's still pretty good and has a good layout. It could be great if it was a little faster.

    2. Lightning Racer - Interaction is nice but I was expecting a little more airtime. Only had one ride on each side. Maybe if I tried again and focused on the dueling aspect I might appreciated it more.

    3. Wildcat - Terrible. Honestly one of the roughest rides I've done. Doesn't help that it doesn't really do much else. Please RMC it.

    My top three all have great speed and intensity.
    Then come the joyful fun-filled GCI racers.
    Then the rest.

    Troy (Troy!) (That pace that keeps picking up as you go <3)
    Thunderhead (so much unexpected joy)
    Thunderbird (very good but not quite as good as the first two)
    Lightning Racer (lit up at night it's one of my most beautiful coaster memories, can't remember which side I preferred)
    Joris water (just so much fun)
    Joris fire
    Wood Coaster (overrated because of location. It's good but can't be appreciated because of restraint stapling)
    Mystic Timbers (very good but not outstanding, minus points for the shed of underwhelming)
    Wodan (so much lost airtime potential)
    Heidi (cute but short)
    American Thunder (a bit of airtime but a little boring)
    Gwazi Tiger (I don't honestly remember it being that rough)
    Gwazi Lion
    Roar, SF America (meh)
    Widcat (to be honest, I don't really remember it but I don't remember hating it)
    Apocalypse (really rough)

    @Mysterious Sue, I'm interested to see that you rank Apocalypse so lowly due to roughness. I knew that it had gotten rougher over the years (likely due to the same reason why it has turned a strange shade of white in recent years), but I didn't know it was quite that bad!

    Never ridden it, though. Only GCI I've ridden is Wicker Man, which was nice and smooth as far as woodies go. I did see Gwazi SBNO in the middle of Busch Gardens Tampa in 2016, however.

    It's not even that bad to be honest. I've never been on a GCI that I thought was really, really rough.

    ^Yeah I was gonna pull Sue up about Apocalypse too. I thought it was great, mind you it was almost new at the time - it was still Terminator Salvation when I rode it, complete with on board audio and everything.
    Hadn't really seen or heard much of it since, other than the name change. Sad to hear it's gotten rough and... erm, white?

    If you need evidence of it being white, then watch this POV:

    There are probably pictures somewhere, but I can't find any.

    Blimey, it really has gone white. Sun bleached I guess?
    Looks like the ride is a shadow of its former self. Compare that POV to this one, with the theming, the on board sound and all the shiny new-ness still intact. No wonder it's not very highly rated anymore. Sad times, man.
