That is pretty **** awful Ciall, not going to lie. I'd forgive you. But it had Stealth on.

1. Katun (Mirabilandia)
2. Dragon Khan (Port Aventura)
3. Nemesis (Alton Towers)
4. Black Mamba (Phantasialand)
5. Colossos (Heide Park)
6. Expedition Ge Force (Holiday Park)
7. The Swarm (Thorpe Park)
8. Silver Star (Europa Park)
9. Blue Fire (Europa Park)
10. Lynet (Farup Sommerland) / Troy (Toverland)

Bit of a two way tie at the bottom, had an indecisive moment. So, it seems I need to - ride Colossos more than once, that one ride was VERY good, but was it an accurate representation? See how well Swarm stands the test of time, and also: see if the France trip changes the list, as there's at least 2 potential new additions coming next weekend :D


I haven't added any major coasters to my count since last years list, apart from Swarm which still hasn't made the shortlist. This is my current top 20, i'm sure this will look very different by the end of June.

1. The Voyage - Holiday World
2. Millennium Force - Cedar Point
3. Top Thrill Dragster - Cedar Point
4. Expedition Geforce - Holiday Park
5. Colossos - Heide Park
6. Diamondback - Kings Island
7. Troy - Toverland
8. Goliath - Walabi World
9. The Beast - Kings Island
10. Maverick - Cedar Point
11. Silver Star - Europa Park
12. Nemesis - Alton Towers
13. The Racer - Kings Island
14. Black Mamba - Phantasialand
15. Stealth - Thorpe Park
16. Wild Mouse - Blackpool Pleasure Beach
17. Raptor - Cedar Point
18. Batman The Ride - Six Flags Great America
19. Blue Fire - Europa Park
20. Oblivion - Alton Towers

Okay, so this is the pre-live and pre-season!

El Toro
Ravine Flyer II
Top Thrill Dragster
Kingda Ka

Storm Runner
Evel Knievel
Mr. Freeze
Cornball Express
Batman: the Ride- St. Louis

I know some things on there are a little bit iffy, like Mr. Freeze, but some of them were just genuinely fun. Just for the record, Vampire is not the one at Chessington, but at La Ronde. It varies by park trip as well, like with Diamondback, which can sometimes be amazing, but then completely **** on other visits.

Either some people are taking the piss, or we're seeing proof of the irreparable brain damage caused by excessive riding of Colossus...
And each time I see a British (or Spanish) accelerator on one of these lists, a part of me dies...

EDIT: (Or Swedish)


After doing my Carowinds/Dollywood trip this weekend I have a little bit more insight into my list.

1. The Beast, Kings Island
2. Superman, SFNE (Now Bizzaro of course)
3. Millenium Force, Cedar Point
4. Apollos Chariot, BGW
5. Intimidator, Carowinds
6. Diamondback, Kings Island
7. Thunderhead, Dollywood
8. Alpengiest, BGW
9. Cheetah Hunt, BGT
10. Kumba, BGT

11. Manta, Seaworld Orlando
12. Montu, BGT
13. Magnum XL2000, Cedar Point
14. Top Thrill Dragster, Cedar Point
15. Shiekra, BGT
16. Wild Eagle, Dollywood
17. Hulk, IoA
18. Great Bear, Hershey
19. Lightning Racer, Hershey (either side)
20. Dueling Dragons, IoA (Fire/Whatever the new red one is called...)

Intamin + B&M + a little wood. And this is just a basic order. It could change around slightly depending on my mood of course.

It's a bit ****. Let's be honest here...
Or to use my usual fallback response 'It's a European intamin accelerator that's not iSpeed. Why does it exist?'
