Best coaster lineup in terms of quality?

Hi guys. I was just scrolling through my spreadsheet of all my roller coasters ranked, and I have them all rated out of 10 on an overall spectrum, so I just discovered that Google Sheets did some very clever maths and gave me my average rating out of 10 per park amongst other things. For that reason, I thought it might be interesting to discuss; which parks do we feel have the best coaster lineup in terms of quality? Not necessarily quantity, but just the raw quality. In terms of what I've visited, have my average rating out of 10 for each park I've visited, which should dictate my personal views on which parks have the highest quality coaster lineups, along with how many credits I've ridden at each park for some context:
  • Alton Towers: 6.3/10 (10 ridden)
  • Blackpool Pleasure Beach: 4.9/10 (10 ridden)
  • Busch Gardens Tampa: 8.4/10 (5 ridden)
  • Chessington World of Adventures: 3/10 (4 ridden)
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom: 3.333333333/10 (4 ridden)
  • Disney's Hollywood Studios: 7.5/10 (2 ridden)
  • Disney's Magic Kingdom: 5.5/10 (4 ridden)
  • Drayton Manor: 5/10 (4 ridden)
  • Fun Spot Kissimmee: 9/10 (1 ridden)
  • Legoland Windsor: 5/10 (1 ridden)
  • Oakwood Theme Park: 4.75/10 (4 ridden)
  • SeaWorld Orlando: 7.25/10 (4 ridden)
  • Thorpe Park: 5.714285714/10 (7 ridden)
  • Universal's Islands of Adventure: 4.75/10 (4 ridden incl. 2 defunct)
  • Universal Studios Florida: 7/10 (3 ridden)
So, my top 3 in terms of what I've ridden are:
  1. Fun Spot Kissimmee (though this one is debatable as I only rode 1 coaster there)
  2. Busch Gardens Tampa
  3. Disney's Hollywood Studios
In terms of worldwide, I'm not too sure.

But which parks do you guys feel have the best quality coaster lineups?

To be fair, I could definitely see SeaWorld Orlando out of what I've visited. Mako and Kraken are both brilliant B&Ms, in my opinion, and even though I wasn't quite as keen on Manta, it was still a good coaster, and I think that's more down to my personal intensity tolerance and not being a huge fan of pure, sustained positive G's, so someone with a higher tolerance would probably like it more.
