@Snoo Hyperion gets a weird amount of disrespect, it is insane. That first airtime hill is possibly the best in the world. Agree on Zadra, very good but not quite enough airtime.

1. Steel Vengeance
2. Skyrush
3. Untamed
4. Taron
5. Time Traveller
6. Phoenix
7. Twisted Colossus
8. Magnum XL200
9. Karnan

Revolution and Wicker Man out of the top ten.
I uncovered my first ever coaster ranking which was made back in October 2019, I'm not sure what I was thinking here.

Colossus and Swarm are the most significant differences, with both having dropped twenty spots over two and a half years.

In other news I did another reshuffle, and moved OzIris up to #6 above Saw. Nemesis Inferno is out of the top ten.

Not quite sure what you're thinking currently. You've still got some... choices in your present Top 10.
I'll attempt to tackle the points that are questioned the most when I reveal my rankings:

-I understand that Olympia's prime was four years ago in 2017 now but I still found it to be an excellent ride in 2021
-OzIris would be higher (or lower...?) if I had better memory of its experience. It often jumps around my list
-While I won't deny Saw's occasional rattle, the last time I experienced it on a bad day was in 2020 so I've been pretty lucky with it recently
-Cannonball Express is the raw definition of pure FUN
-Whilst Oblivion only has one element, that element is pulled off absolutely perfectly
-Nemesis isn't there because I didn't ride it in the right mindset

I'm thinking some overshadow by an RMC as well as rattle on the latter half of the train (didn't bother me but did others) can certainly hurt it. That said, you do have Magnum AND Karnan in your Top 10. We can't be friends.. :p

Hyperion was P-H-E-N-O-M-E-N-A-L. I don't know what they did or changed but this ride is THE sleeper of Europe. This is what airtime should be in it's purest form.. probably the best continually on any coaster I've been on. The rides above it just over a bit more as it's not long. Still.. LOVED It.

Zadra is amazing as well, with a layout full of everything you could want short of my favorite thing.. airtime. It lacked it which hurt it when comparing it to the monster that is Hyperion. That said.. night rides are insanity and it hits ALL over.. all day.

Fønix happened to be 500 but was an ENORMOUS surprise to me. I had to ride it last at Farup to make it 500 which made the anticipation grow. That ride does not spare an element and hits you over and over and over. Nothing disappoints or is wasted in it's layout. Fell in complete love after ride one and ride 10.

Piraten also a fantastic airtime machine, one of those bucket list rides I wanted to get on forever. What a fantastic ride, just a bit short and missing in some spots.

Other then that, two enormous disappoints were Untamed, Colossos, and Helix. All underdelivered by miles.

Well, I ALSO went to Florida.. and rode the Gwussy.. and it blew me away. Absolutely loved it. Rode front and back and it hit like no ones business.

1 Steel Vengeance - Cedar Point
2 Jurassic World Velocicoaster - Islands of Adventure
3 Voyage - Holiday World
4 Hyperion - Energylandia
5 Iron Gwazi - Busch Gardens Tampa

While it's fresh in my mind, here's how I think stuff shapes up at the moment. New additions in bold.

1. Steel Vengeance, Cedar Point
2. Taron, Phantasialand
3. Zadra, Energylandia
4 . Fury 325, Carowinds
5. Dinoconda, China Dinosaurs Park
6. Lightning Rod, Dollywood
7. Boulder Dash, Lake Compounce
8. Skyrush, Hersheypark
9. Voyage, Holiday World
10. Top Thrill Dragster, Cedar Point

11. Helix, Liseberg
12. X2, Six Flags Magic Mountain
13. Wildfire, Kolmarden

Knocked out are Hyperion and Nemesis, although I think the 11-20 slots will get a little rejig in the coming days. Ride to Happiness may not keep that slot after all.

Nothing too unique, all big hitters

1. OzIris
2. Ride to Happiness
3. Zadra
4. Behemoth
5. Nemesis
6. Twisted Colossus
7. Shambala
8. Millennium Force
9. Montu
10. Kondaa

Not having a dig - that's a very respectable top 10 that is, kudos to you, Sir... except... uhm... Oziris at number 1? What's that about? Literally every other coaster in that list stomps all over Oziris. Care to explain your reasoning? I can only assume you got married on it or something, cos that's just like bizarre. Like I said, not having a dig, just genuinely curious as to what makes Oziris so special for you? 🤔
