I don't get why everyone says that El Toro is the greatest wooden coaster on earth. When it's really not. There are several wooden coasters out there that are far superior than El Toro. . . I mean, El Toro isn't "bad" but it really isn't the "greatest woodie on earth."


That's why it's called an opinion, if you're riding El Toro and you get off and go ah geez *this coaster* and *this coaster* is so much better than El Toro then you're doing it wrong.

Well, the first two that come to mind are Outlaw Run and Lightning Rod.


I thought that those two were considered steel coasters?

Those two are wooden because they use Topper Track, not I-box Track.

Having been on many of the wooden coasters that normally can be considered the "best" (El Toro, Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Voyage, Lightning Rod, just to name a few), I can safely say three things:

1. All are worthy to be considered one of the best coasters around.
2. Any preferential differences are based on the subjective likes/dislikes of that particular rider.
3. What is considered the "best" really could not possibly matter any goddamn less than it already does.

Yup. Not to get all up in arms about this, but I think "far superior" is a stretch when it comes to other woodies surpassing El Toro. Granted, I can see it if someone has preferences that El Toro just doesn't fit (classic coasters/trains, different pacing or airtime, etc.); I myself have preferences that put several other woodies above it. At the same time, El Toro is world-class and easily one of my favorites!

The opinion of many (everyone) is more telling than the opinion of one (you).
