Thank you :)

I have a list of "favorites," with a few that are definitely at the very top... but it's hard to rank them among each other.

^ This is exactly what I do. When someone asks me "What is your favorite coaster?" I am actually unable to answer them. Instead I find myself rattling off a list of like 10 really good coasters that I'd be perfectly happy riding at that moment if I could.

I don't see the point in having to decide which one is better than the other.

Definitely in the minority here with my opinion, ridden two RMCs and here's how I would rank them:

1. Goliath - Loved the height, drop, and speed. The zero g-stall is one of my favorite elements on any rollercoaster. The only negative thing about this ride was that it felt short.

2. Twisted Colossus - I was really hyped for this after hearing so many good things about this ride but unfortunately it did not live up to the expectations. It was a fun ride and had some nice pops of airtime but there was nothing too special about it. I also never got to experience the dueling part since the dispatches weren't timed well.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Going to be really tough to ride "all the RMCs" if these raptors start popping up all over the place.

After finally riding my first RMC a few weeks ago (Joker), I'm definitely addicted. This company has been hitting homerun after homerun.

Finally rode my first two rmc's , next week I will ride my third: Wildfire.
I don't understand all the hype about Medusa, it's a very good coaster but it's not that intense. Don't get me wrong it's a fun ride but it's very far from the intensity and strong ejector airtime of Twisted Colossus. Twisted Colossus literally left me speechless

1- Twisted Colossus
2- Medusa

Will update in ten days
1- X2 2- Der Schwur des Kärnan 3 - Twisted Colossus 4- Taron 6- Expedition GeForce 6- Shambhala 7- Medusa Steel Coaster 8-Katun

Coaster Counter: 134

1. Twisted Colossus and Storm Chaser. There. Predicament solved. Crisis averted. :cool:
3. Outlaw Run
4. Iron Rattler
5. New Texas Giant
6. Joker
7. Goliath

Joker is my latest one. Pros: it has a fantastic layout. Disorienting every time, not just the first time or two. Typically-great RMC inversions, hangtime and airtime. It reminds me of iRat and NTAG the most, with hints of Goliath. Why it's so low for me: despite its copious pluses, it distinctly felt "weaker" for an RMC. Not extreme; not relentless. High fun factor and rerideability, though! I don't think it's worlds better than Medusa (SFDK), but I only marathoned one of those two, and it wasn't the one with walk-on waits. ;)

I'll eagerly repeat what others say about the RMC's they feel are weakest: Joker is still a much better, more enjoyable and higher-quality ride than most other coasters! Side note: on the contrary, I do not feel that way about Goliath--plenty of classic and traditional woodies I'd prefer to ride.

I'll provide a quick update:

I could easily flip 1 and 2. Their amazing settings combined with the intense ride from start to finish makes them 2 of my favorite coasters. Then while it is weird having a second lift hill, I won't complain about essentially getting another lap.

1) Wildfire
2) Iron Rattler
3) Twisted Colossus

4) New Texas Giant
5) Wicked Cyclone

6) Storm Chaser

7) Goliath
Top 5 Wood- Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Balder, Voyage
Top 5 Steel- Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Shambhala
Top 5 Parks- Europa Park, Cedar Point, Disneyland, Phantasialand, Knoebels
