    I feel Im sure we've all been there, I have had many expected new #1s or top 10s fail to live up.
    I'd not be worried :) And true, as said somewhere above its a nice park. The free sodas are nice, pretty solid water park (and I dont usually do that) typical small park "nice" feel, what it lacks in ride quantity makes up for with atmosphere and feel of going to family park and not some corporate "heres your service for all your cash". Very nice place, with all good coasters. Not one, for me, was even "OK" all enjoyable

    I don't rank SV as a top 10 coaster, it's a weird one for me because I do think its a very good coaster, its relentless, its airtime filled and a very good coaster but the restraints absolutely battered my thighs and that ruined the experience for me to the point of not riding it again during my CP visit.

    TTD, Magnum and Maverick were my favourite three coasters at Cedar Point.

    I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but in light of what @Error said about him being bigger and therefore not being able to enjoy it properly made me wonder if you're also bigger. Trying to see if maybe being pleasantly plump and ranking RMCs lower have any correlation. :p

    Just to add my 2c on Voyage, rode it yesterday and back row was crazy bonkers, but it's a bit too rough and I :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing hate the trains, those restraints are so restrictive and with the roughness it can be unbearable at times.
    Funnily enough the back row was less rough than other rows and I loved it but won't be ranking it in my top 10.

    6ft2 tall, by no means skinny but not that overweight, I spent my teenage years playing football, swimming and running so my thighs are quite 'toned up', so they do tend to get crushed under restraints every now and then. Shambhala's restraints are tight on my thighs but the airtime doesn't hurt, the restraints on Steel Vengeance were not friendly on my thighs and that's why it wasn't my favourite coaster there. I do want to point out here that I think SV is amazing, but I just don't like the restraints.

    There isn't a question any more of how good Steel Vengeance is. Rode it front, back, middle, morning, evening, night.. the ride is the best ride in the world for me. It didn't take convincing for me either. I didn't have to unpack anything any longer. What a fantastic experience and anyone who likes intensity and airtime will adore it. I'm pretty sure most of the US-Live attendees put it at the front of their lists as well. I will note that it's not for everyone, as it is intense and some folks don't like intense, but if you do.. prepare yourself.

    1. Steel Vengeance - Cedar Point
    2. Lightning Rod - Dollywood
    3. Outlaw Run - Silver Dollar City
    4. Goliath - Six Flags Great America
    5. The Voyage - Holiday World

    10. Storm Chaser - Kentucky Kingdom

    It took a few rides, but once I got to the point where we cruised through the mid course brakes and I thought to myself "Lightning Rod would be stopped in the final brakes by now," I knew. I struggle to find a flaw with it, and that's absolutely mind boggling. I actually cannot believe it.

    P.S. plzdon'tcallmeaCPfanboyPLS

    Based on my opinions on Dragon Khan, it would probably make sense to ditch Kumba from the top 10 but I don't like to do that without a reride.

    Gonna update my rankings now since I haven't done it in quite a while, and I've got some big plans this summer.

    1. Voyage - Holiday World
    2. Steel Vengeance - Cedar Point
    3. Lightning Rod - Dollywood
    4. Storm Chaser - Kentucky Kingdom
    5. Maverick - Cedar Point
    6. Twisted Colossus - Six Flags Magic Mountain
    7. Millennium Force - Cedar Point
    8. X2 - Six Flags Magic Mountain
    9. Goliath - Six Flags Great America
    10. Magnum XL-200 - Cedar Point

    11. Cornball Express - Indiana Beach
    12. Thunderhead - Dollywood
    13. Screamin' Eagle - Six Flags St. Louis
    14. Raptor - Cedar Point
    15. Mr. Freeze Reverse Blast - Six Flags St. Louis
    16. Mystery Mine - Dollywood
    17. Tatsu - Six Flags Magic Mountain
    18. Tennessee Tornado - Dollywood
    19. Incredible Hulk (1999-2015) - Islands of Adventure
    20. Mind Bender - Six Flags Over Georgia

    21. Banshee - Kings Island

    I know it seems a bit peculiar to end my rankings at 21, but the way I have it in my rankings is six categories. The first category is my all-time favorite coasters (rankings #1-9), the second being excellent coasters but not all-time favorite material (rankings #10-21), and then the third being good coasters but not excellent, fourth being mediocre coasters but not totally horrible, the fifth being kiddie coasters (they need to be placed somewhere), and the sixth for the total :emoji_poop: and from categories 3-5, I really don't feel like ranking because ehh, and the sixth category is ranked just because they're all bad and I actually have motive to decide which coaster is worse in that category (only 8 coasters are crap enough to make it). So yeah. I'll have a full Top 30 later this season updated with new coasters I rode this year.

    A post US Live update has arrived

    1: Steel Vengeance - Cedar Point
    2: Lightning Rod - Dollywood
    3: Outlaw Run - Silver Dollar City
    4: Voyage - Holiday World
    5: Storm Chaser - Kentucky Kingdom
    6: Goliath - Six Flags Great America
    7: Shambhala - Port Aventura
    8: Phoenix - Knoebels
    9: Maverick - Cedar Point
    10: Twisted Timbers - King's Dominion

    The major differences here are after a lot of internal debate Steel Vengeance has knocked Lightning Rod out of my #1 spot The Night ride really put it over the top for me, It definitely doens't have an element as great as Lightning Rods Quad Down but the ride is aggressive with a great mix of forces and doesn't let up. The other big changes for me are Maverick sliding back in to my top 10 and RFII (rode it today after my post live extra activities on my trip home) for the first time since I rode it for the first time in 2013 has been knocked out of my top 10. The ride is by no means bad, but it definitely could use some TLC and retracking in sections and for whatever reason the lift hill is slowing down at the top causing a pretty significant loss of speed towards the end of the ride to where there weren't really any forces where they used to be. I also took the time to think about and add an 11-20 to my list.

    11: Leap the Dips - Lakemont Park
    12: El Toro - Six Flags Great Adventure
    13: Superman, The Ride - Six Flags New England
    14: Boulder Dash - Lake Compounce
    15: Space Mountain - Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom
    16: Thunderbird - Holiday World
    17: Ravine Flyer II - Waldameer
    18: Lightning Run - Kentucky Kingdom
    19: Matterhorn Bobsleds - Disney Land
    20: Leviathan - Canada's Wonderland

    (once again New rides in Bold, Rides ridden in the last 2 years in italics. Rides that have moved since the last update will be underlined)

    You feel like a basic bitch? My friend, you ARE a basic bitch ;) SUCH a CP fanboy!

    Kidding. Steel Vengeance is undoubtedly the best coaster I have been on by miles. It was only the crazy wtf experience of Eejanaika that keeps it ahead and I reckon if I rerode it, it would not have the same impact. Us all having SV as number one is equivalent to all the Taron lovers on Europe having that as number one! Cringeeee. But, I guess it's just a testament to how great they are.

    I mean, it does kind of happen in waves sometimes right? New coasters can and usually are typically better then their older counterparts as they normally improve on designs of past. I will say that those who have ridden Taron on this side did love it. Same goes for Wildfire as well.

    The good news is that we aren't the only folks (as in those who went to the Live) who felt that way. Most who've been on SV have adored it in some capacity, with very few having it outside of their top 5... just as I thought tbh.
