As I did last year, around this time I think, post up your Top 10 (or more) coasters and compare them later in the year to see how it has changed! A few of us will be riding quite a few sexy coasters this season so I figured another sexy version of our Top 10 is in order!

1. Boulder Dash
2. El Toro
3. Maverick
4. Superman: Ride of Steel (SFNE)
5. Voyage
6. Ravine Flyer II
7. X2
8. Alpengeist
9. Montu
10. Top Thrill Dragster


11: Phantom's Revenge
12: Griffon/Sheikra
13: Tatsu
14: Talon
15: Phoenix (Knoebels)

3. Phoenix, Knoebel’s
4. Goliath, Walibi World
5. Behemoth, Canada’s Wonderland
6. The Ultimate, Lightwater Valley
7. Dragon Khan, Port Aventura
8. Apollo’s Chariot, Busch Gardens Europe
9. Furius Baco, Port Aventura
10. Storm Runner, Hershey Park
11. Nitro, Six Flags Great Adventure
12. Sheikra, Busch Gardens Africa
13. El Toro, Six Flags Great Adventure
14. Talon, Dorney Park

Coasters I think have a chance to get on there this year are Troy, Expedition GeForce and Colossos... I honestly can't see much in California getting on there, but, we'll see! Terminator might be awesome. Or I might really like something like X2.

20. Kingda Ka, Six Flags Great Adventure
For liking it so much why is it so far down?!

And also, you liked Darien's Superman better than New England's!?

Damn, I'm not questioning your top twenty, but it's weird.

There's only 5 coasters between them (one of which is also a B&M Hyper!), out of like, 344 coasters, a gap of 5 isn't that huge...

20. Kingda Ka, Six Flags Great Adventure

Again, 20 isn't that far down out of more than 300... There's a lot of coasters below that I think are AWESOME and will also rave about if they come up.

And also, you liked Darien's Superman better than New England's!?

Yeah. SFNE's was just a disappointment for not being as OMFG awesome as it was supposed to be, so left me a little anti-climatic and a bit, deflated? While Darien Lake's blew me away and was a LOT better than I thought it would be. The Darien one was a TONNE of fun with some great moments of airtime. The whole of SFNE's I just kept thinking "I don't... get... what's so awesome...?"

^Never go into a coaster thinking it will be 'OMFG AWESOME!'.. or you will ALWAYS be disappointed, no matter what the coaster is. ;)

Did that with X2.. in fact, I heard nothing but bad, and it is in my Top 10.

My top 10:
1. Boulder Dash, Lake Compounce
2. Phoenix, Knoebel's
3. Lightning Racer, Hersheypark
4. Talon, Dorney Park
5. Apollo's Chariot, Busch Gardens Europe
6. Kingda Ka, SF Great Adventure
7. Steel Force, Dorney Park
8. Nemesis, Alton Towers
9. El Toro, SF Great Adventure
10. Alpengeist, Busch Gardens Europe.

However, I'm not liking this list at all, as Kingda Ka is only based on a single front-seat ride, and Steel Force was also a front-seat nght ride which was awesome. I've also not been on Nemesis for a couple of years now, and everybody seems to say that it's getting rougher. :?
