My Top 10 Roller Coasters
Thrill Dragster, Cedar Point (Intamin AG)
This ride is a one-of-a-kind Intamin stratacoaster that is unlike anything you have ever ridden in the world!! The
blast of 120 mph is so exciting, you may run out of breath just thinking about it before you get on. The 420 foot monster
tower you go up is climatic and beautiful, as you glide on top of all the other mega rides at Cedar Point. It’s only
downfall is it’s length: 17 seconds. Still this ride is one for the ages, and is no doubt my favorite ride ever.
Force, Cedar Point (Intamin AG)
The first gigacoaster in the world is truly a wonder, and there is no doubt whatsoever why this is rated the best coaster
in the world. It doesn’t top my list, but I can see how it tops most everyone else’s. This ride, a true roller
coaster, is blazing and there was never a time I didn’t have a smile during the ride. You climb over 300 feet in the
air to be dropped on what I think is the most exciting and nerve-racking drop on any roller coaster. You speed through hills,
tunnels, curves, and helixes at 93 mph and at that speed…I never wanted the ride to end!
Incredible Hulk Coaster, Islands of Adventure (B&M)
Up until my Cedar Point trip, this ride was my favorite. Although my trip up to CP dethroned, this ride is still one
of the tops and its uniqueness is what brings it its awesomeness. The shooting out like a canon out of the lift tunnel straight
into a barrel roll is one of the best moments I have ever had on a coaster, and the immediate inversions that follow over
water and paths full of watching people is awesome. B&M truly made a masterpiece with this ride.
Ultimate Flight, Six Flags over Georgia (B&M)
The first “flying” coaster in the States resides right here at the home park. Superman is truly a work
of genius and the ride put SFoG at and upper echelon of Six Flags parks. The pretzel loop, the newest inversion, is no doubt
my most favorite inversion ever and what brings Superman its money. The pretzel loop simply rocks!! The ride is pretty ho-hum
from there, but as long as that pretzel loop is on the ride, Superman will be one of my favorites for a long time.
Vu, Six Flags over Georgia (Vekoma)
Ahh, yes. The infamous Déjà Vu. Better known as Delayja Vu. Still, when this ride is operating,
it is one of the most intense rides out there, and no doubt the most intense ride for me at SFoG.
Dragon, Islands of Adventure (B&M)
A lot of people say the best coaster of Dueling Dragons is the Fire Dragon. I disagree. The Ice Dragon, though slower,
is one of my favorite inverted coasters and I thought packed a smoother punch than its rival, the Fire Dragon. Dueling Dragons
has two intangibles that no other two coasters have: a state-of-the art queue line that is a ride in itself, and the inverted
tangles of the coasters. They look like red and blue spaghetti!
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (B&M)
It’s been awhile since I rode this one, so my memories are a bit faint, but I can still tell you this is one
of the best sit-down coasters in the world! One of B&M’s first sit-down coasters, this ride packs a huge lift hill,
rapid speed, and 7 intense inversions that make this ride awesome!
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (B&M)
Like Kumba, my memory of this ride is faint, but still good enough to remember it is one of my top rides. This ride
is very exciting, and it is one of the tallest and fastest of its kind. This ride impresses me much more than it’s comparision,
Raptor at CP.
Twister, Cedar Point (Intamin AG)
This was the first Intamin coaster I had ever ridden, and I was pleasantly surprised. This isn’t your typical
coaster as your blasted out of the station at 70 mph up a twisting tower, just to do it again backwards on another twisting
hill behind the station. What makes this ride awesome I that is rarely as a line, is right next to the massive Lake Erie, and it shoots you out multiple times!!! No doubt one of
Georgia Cyclone, Six Flags over Georgia (Curtis D. Summers)
Number 10 was a hard choice, but in the end, I couldn’t leave off my favorite woodie, The hometown Georgia Cyclone.
This ride is truly a classic and though its rough, it packs a punch that is very entertaining.
Mindbender and The Great American Scream Machine, Six Flags over Georgia; Blazing Fury, Dollywood;
