    2) Oblivion, Alton Towers
    3) Nemesis, Alton Towers
    4) Hulk, IoA
    5) The Mummy, USF

    • CommentTimeApr 22nd 2015
    63. 65 if you count the separate sides of racing coasters as separate rides.

    As for top 10:
    1. Furius Baco - PortAventura
    2. Shambhala - PortAventura
    3. Dragon Khan - PortAventura
    4. Nemesis - Alton towers
    5. Batman la Fuga - Parque Warner Madrid
    6. Stealth - Thorpe Park
    7. Oblivion - Alton Towers
    8. Swarm - Thorpe Park
    9. Superman Atraccion De Acero - Parque Warner Madrid
    10. Nemesis Inferno - Thorpe Park

    I don't really have a home park unless you count water parks, in which case, it's the Western Water Park in Magaluf. PortAventura is the closest theme park, but even then it's a 30 minute flight away.
    My coaster count is around 250 I believe.

    Top 10

    1) Outlaw Run
    2) Intimidator305
    3) New Texas Giant
    4) Maverick
    5) El Toro
    6) Fury325
    7) Iron Rattler
    8) Boulder Dash
    9) Millennium Force
    10) Storm Runner

    Oh, my coaster count is somewhere around 85 (66 Steel, 19 Wood), probably somewhere around 250-300 circuits.
    I got 65 right now, I'm missing ton's of credits from parks still, but I really don't care enough to ride a standup so there's that. Anyway I should get a bunch more, and possibly break 100 this year with chances of Waldemeer, KI, Carowinds and SFNE. King's Island is looking less likely at this point unfortunately :'(

    4) Phantom
    6)Goliath (SFOG)

    10. Desert Race (Heide Park, 2014)

    Do I have to explain my number 1? :D
    • CommentTimeApr 23rd 2015

    • CommentAuthorTheBeatles
    • CommentTimeApr 23rd 2015
    I don't count, but I'll give a top 10.

    1) X2 (Six Flags Magic Mountain)
    2) Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit (Universal Studios Orlando)
    3) Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (Disneyland)
    4) Expedition Everest (Disney's Animal Kingdom)
    5) Fahrenheit (Hersheypark)
    6) Scream (Six Flags Magic Mountain)
    7) Manta (Sea World Orlando)
    8) Revenge of the Mummy (Universal Studios Orlando)
    9) Stormrunner (Hersheypark)
    10) Giant Dipper (Belmont Park)
    My coaster count? I've traveled all over the world to ride all the roller coasters in every nation. Not a single person has ever beaten my absolutely legendary coaster count of 14 roller coasters, and no one ever will.

    As for my Top 10, I'll try my best to rank them "objectively" (as my "Favorite" coaster list is a bit different. Of course, no opinion is actually "objective" but you know. I mean minus sentimental value, etc. hahaha):

    1.) T Express (Everland) - The insanely steep drops, the sustained speed (especially at the beginning), and of course the legendary airtime were beyond incredible. But those are not the only things that make this thing Number 1. It's also a REALLY long roller coaster, and by the end of the ride you feel like you've just been on an epic journey. Not to mention it's also the most beautiful-looking roller coaster I've ever seen.

    2.) Atlantis Adventure (Lotte World) - It's fast, smooth, it's got some intense airtime, as well as some interesting forces and maneuvers you wouldn't guess were there just by watching an onride POV video. It's the epitome of a pure FUN roller coaster!

    3.) Revenge of the Mummy (Universal Studios Singapore) - I didn't spoil myself before riding this 5 years ago; this ride is so full of surprises! I didn't even think it was actually a roller coaster before I first rode it, so that added to the surprise.

    4.) Battlestar Galactica - Cylon (Universal Studios Singapore) - Well it is a bit slow at some points, but that launch-drop sequence was GREAT! The barrel roll at the end was awesome too.

    5.) Space Shuttle (Enchanted Kingdom) - Actually my favorite roller coaster (it was after all the coaster that made me an enthusiast). No matter how many times I ride it, the first drop is still real fun and the inversions are still great (especially backwards). It's super smooth too!

    6.) French Revolution (Lotte World) - I was expecting a pretty bad beating from this ride, but boy was I surprised. It was actually really fun! The vertical loop was pretty forceful, the helix was a great way to end the ride, and there was actually some very noticeable airtime.

    7.) Space Fantasy (Universal Studios Japan) - My first (and so far only) spinning coaster. It's a really fun ride! The theming while on the ride was really cool, and the finale was intense. (And I'm not just talking about forces!)

    8.) Battlestar Galactica - Human (Universal Studios Singapore) - Kind of like Cylon but without the inversions. It's very fun (and honestly faster than it looks like on TPR's video!) although at some points, yes, it is quite lacking in the speed department (given the fact that it's 140+ feet tall). Although it's supposed to be a family coaster, I believe you can make a great family roller coaster without sacrificing too much speed.

    9.) Enchanted Airways (Universal Studios Singapore) - Fun family coaster! I honestly didn't expect it to be as fast as it is, given that it's a Roller Skater model.

    10.) Raging Spirits (Tokyo DisneySea) - The initial drops were good, the curving drop before the loop was okay, and the vertical loop and succeeding helix were fun. After that though, it felt a bit drawn out. It's still a fun ride though!

    I love the rock music theme, the art associated with the ride, the lighting and audio on the trains, the landscaping, support structures, track shaping, and just about everything except for the mediocre on-ride experience.

    Although the ride is lame in 4/6 rows, if you ride in the front of either car it isn't bad at all.

    • CommentAuthorElvenage
    • CommentTimeApr 24th 2015
    I guess I dislike the music selection. The hidden list makes it bearable, and there have been numerous issues with wheels flattening out, causing extremely rough experiences on the ride. New chassis had to be delivered to resolve this, and after riding is dozens of times, I end up with majority of painful and uncomfortable rides. Could just be me, but it seems like the general consensus from park-goers when I visit dislike it very much. Or maybe I'm spoiled with rides.
    • CommentAuthorJAKool
    • CommentTimeApr 24th 2015
    After you've ridden X2 10 times in a row, back seat on RRR is like riding a B&M. It could be way rougher, and still provides some incredible airtime. It's just a good experience overall. Even though I don't like the theme as much as Joseph does and the awful ride attendants kinda sour the atmosphere, when you choose the right song, hot damn is it a great experience. The vertical lift is great, the non-inverting loop is superb, and there's airtime off of every brake run. Aside from a few bumps here and there, mainly after the non-inverting loop and the final ampersand, the ride is at least a tolerable smoothness. I've never really had a problem with it. It just has a really great presence in the park as well, the way it towers over the buildings is awesome.

    I guess we'll have to agree to disagree in the long run, while I see your valid points, I still don't like the ride. But that's what opinions are for :-)
    • CommentTimeApr 24th 2015
    HRRR is actually really good. I can't remember how rough it is but the height, speed and relative freedom of the cars combine with some of those worlds-first elements make it a really good ride.

    Ok so here's My List. I've been on over 50 Coasters so far. I'm planning on visiting some good parks this year when I get a chance too

    Top 10 for Steel

    1. Millennium Force, 2. Top Thrill Dragster, 3. Maverick, 4. Magnum XL-200, 5. Raging bull, 6. Deja-Vu (Sfgam), 7. Mr. Freeze Reverse Blast (Sfstl), 8. Wicked Twister, 9. X-Flight (Sfgam), and 10. Batman the ride (Sfgam)

    Top 10 for Wood

    1. Voyage, 2. Goliath (Sfgam), 3. American Thunder, 4. Viper (Sfgam), 5. Legend (HW), 6./7. American Eagle (Red than Blue) 8. The Boss, 9. Tornado (Adventureland, Iowa),
    10. Blue Streak (CP), 11. Screamin' Eagle (Sfstl)
    I consider American Eagle 2 coasters often as they 2 seperate coasters. So I've included my pick number 10/11 as people often only see it as 1 coaster.

    My top 10 Overall

    1. MF, 2. TTD, 3. Voyage, 4. Maverick, 5. Goliath (Sfgam), 6. American Thunder, 7. Magnum, 8. Raging Bull, 9. Deja-Vu (Sfgam), 10. Viper Sfgam)

    • CommentTimeApr 27th 2015
    respectable list nonetheless^
    • CommentTimeApr 27th 2015
    This is off the top of my head, so the list can change.

    10. Incredible Hulk - Islands Of Adventure
    I find this ride incredibly fun, the launch into the zero G roll sets the whole experience for me, and even after that the ride is full of twists and turns with an averagely long experience. I look forward to it every year.

    9. Dueling Dragons - Islands of Adventure (WHEN IT RACED)
    Lets all face it, when this ride raced it was outstanding, going head to head with another coaster set the whole experience for this ride. The forces were insane, there were many 'fly by' moments and that meetup at the loop was beyond insane. I really enjoy it - and even now I still do.

    8. Bizarro - Six Flags New England.
    I've ridden this well over 100+ times and it still hasn't lost its hype. The first drop feels like it drags on forever, and the airtime hills provide some amazing ejector airtime. Hell, the first airtime hill maintains Floater G's for around 2-3 seconds... Awesome experience.

    7. Boulder Dash - Lake Compounce.
    I haven't ridden this one in quite a while, but its really fun. The laterals are crazy, and the ride has you feeling as if your out of control. It's the perfect representation of a classic wooden coaster that can hold its initial value. Great ride that packs a punch.

    6. El Toro - Six Flags Great Adventure.
    Like someone has mentioned about T Express, it maintains an intense speed the whole ride and packs a ton of airtime into all it's hills. The forces also make this ride very enjoyable.

    5. Tower of Terror - Disney World.
    I have a Soft Spot for Dark rides and suprises. That's exactly what this ride is, the suspense the ride gives you as it escalates is amazing, and the climax drop takes your breath away, Forces are great and it leaves for a great ride. The scenery is unreal as well.

    4. Revenge of the Mummy - Universal Orlando.
    As someone else has mentioned, this ride leaves you guessing what to expect, absolutely unpredictable the first time around and makes up for a great ride. Really smooth and the scenery is enjoyable at any level.

    3. Harry Potter's Forbidden Journey - Universal Orlando.
    Oh my god where do you go wrong on this? The experience is very unexpecting and intense, actually SCARING you in places you wouldn't expect. The motion and transitions between sections were smooth and it left you guessing what to expect next.

    2. Escape from Gringotts - Universal Orlando.
    Again, where do you go wrong. I rode this without spoilers and it left me with an open mouth at such a technological ride. The tilt drops, the scenes and the suspense were great and made me really enjoy the experience.

    1. Wicked Cyclone - Six Flags New England.
    I've only saw this ride in person without riding (Its not open yet) but I cannot wait. Will definitely be my favourite I hope.

    I have a pretty well established list, but I'm planning on expanding it this summer with ZDT's Switchback, new Batman, and other smaller Texas parks. A lot of the rides I don't remember very well because they were a long time ago.
    Anyway, I've got 133 total (110 steel, 23 wood), and I'm proud of my top 10.

    1. Outlaw Run
    2. Maverick
    3. Top Thrill Dragster
    4. New Texas Giant
    5. Iron Rattler
    6. Powder Keg
    7. Millennium Force
    8. Superman Krypton Coaster
    9. Superman Ultimate Flight (SFDK)
    10. Steel Eel

    1. Maverick
    2. Top Thrill Dragster
    3. New Texas Giant
    4. Iron Rattler
    5. Powder Keg
    6. Millennium Force
    7. Superman Krypton Coaster
    8. Superman Ultimate Flight (SFDK)
    9. Steel Eel
    10. Wild Thing

    1. Outlaw Run
    2. Wild Mouse (Blackpool)
    3. Grand National (Blackpool)
    4. Big Dipper (Blackpool)
    5. Giant Dipper (Santa Cruz)
    6. American Eagle Red
    7. Screamin' Eagle
    8. Renegade
    9. American Eagle Blue
    10. American Thunder

    Don't judge me for having a Morgan (or two) in my top ten. :P I would disgrace my own name if they weren't in there somewhere. Also they're my favorites (duh) and I would give anything to get a ride on the new Lightning Run.

    Furthermore, I will be returning this summer to ride Outlaw Run and Keggy. I can't recommend SDC enough. Go. Now.

    edit: I went ahead and made separate lists for wood and steel because my overall list only has one woodie in it.
    I believe my count is in the high 50s low 60s. My top 10 are (and there's no doubts on any of these for me):

    1: Stealth
    2: Nemesis
    3: The Smiler
    4: The Swarm
