2017! The parks I visited: Carowinds, Valleyfair, Mall of America, Kings Island (Winterfest)

A pretty weak 2017 so this will be an interesting top 10.
1. Afterburn
2. Fury 325
3. Renegade
4. Intimidator (Carowinds)
5. Steel Venom
6. Mystic Timbers
7. Wild Thing
8. Rock Bottom Plunge
9. Avatar Airbender
10. Excalibur (yes really haha)

That feels...weird. Thanks 2017. I guess I only have myself to blame.

Afterburn - Carowinds
Alpengeist - BGW (NEW)
Apollo's Chariot - BGW (NEW)
Comet - Great Escape (NEW)
El Toro - SFGAdv
Fury 325 - Carowinds (NEW)

Hydrus - Casino Pier (NEW)
Nitro - SFGAdv
Talon - Dorney Dark

EDIT: OThers are doing it, so I marked which coasters were new to me this year as well.

Ordering is hard when you're comparing old favorites to new rides, but we'll say it's something like this...

Donkeys are my way of life!
