Also, I realize if people travel a lot its basically just going to be their top 10, give or take a few (like Bill lol)
I'm in that category. This year was my first time riding coasters outside of my home park, so just take my current sig and swap Renegade and Flying Turns with Afterburn and Apollo's Chariot.
Re: DoinItForTheFame, curious that Verbolten made your top list. It takes a close second to Green Lantern (SFMM) on my worst list. Cheesy and terrible show building, and made me vomit once. Not even the good kind of cheesy (Skull Mountain).

Not in precise order: Skyrush (new) I305 Storm Runner El Toro Superman the Ride (new) Wicked Cyclone (new) Dominator (still great after ~1200 rides) Rebel Yell (racing more this year, a good race is still rare but so much fun) Volcano (esp. solo rides) Nitro (night and sunset rides)
Special mentions: BGW, good to go there again, although no specific ride quite makes this list many are just below it. Roar at SFA, best I rode in January.

Not a single coaster we rode in Florida rattled.

This is why I thought it would be an interesting thread, I knew some of the responses would be random. Also with people that traveled extensively (like Canobie) narrowing it down to the stand-out 10.
