Boulder Dash at Lake Compounce in Bristol, CT, is another underrated gem, and one of the best wooden rollercoasters in the U.S. in my opinion.

Out of all of the theme parks in Northern California I've been to, Medusa at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is the best. I've only been to the Disney parks in the Southern California area.

Nitro and El Toro are tops for me-but I have several parks I still need to visit. Kinda Ka is awesome but the line is always crazy and the ride extremely quick.

Steel Force at Dorney Park is not as impressive as when it first opened but is still one of my favorites. Hercules also used to be a great wooden coaster there that has since been shut down.

Also-more of a novelty but The Great White in Wildwood is very cool-it may be the only coaster on the beach that goes underneath a boardwalk.

I have been on something in the 260-270 neighborhood as of last season. I find that the more roller coasters I ride, the harder it is to compare in a meaningful way, but my top 21 is roughly:

1. Leviathan, Canada's Wonderland -- Toronto
2. Millennium Force, Cedar Point -- Sandusky
3. Outlaw Run, Silver Dollar City -- Branson
4. Griffon, Busch Gardens Williamsburg -- Hampton Roads area
5. Beast, Kings Island -- Cincinnati
6. Nemesis, Alton Towers -- Staffordshire (England)
7. Prowler, Worlds of Fun -- Kansas City
8. Behemoth, Canada's Wonderland -- Toronto
9. Voyage, Holiday World -- southern Indiana
10. Maverick, Cedar Point -- Sandusky
11. Raven, Holiday World -- southern Indiana
12. Top Thrill Dragster, Cedar Point -- Sandusky
13. Oblivion, Alton Towers -- Staffordshire (England)
14. Intimidator, Carowinds -- Charlotte
15. Diamondback, Kings Island -- Cincinnati
16. X2, Six Flags Magic Mountain -- LA area
17. Renegade, Valleyfair -- Minneapolis
18. Patriot, Worlds of Fun -- Kansas City
19. Raging Bull, Six Flags Great America -- Chicago
20. Intimidator 305, Kings Dominion -- Richmond
21. Big Bad Wolf (RIP), Busch Gardens Williamsburg -- Hampton Roads area

Any list of the best roller coasters that doesn't have at least one from Kennywood Park on it is null and void.

It's been torn down now though to make room for that lame Tony Hawke rollercoaster.
Even though it was very simple I thought Mr. Freeze was the best one there. Titan was cool as well, going underground was quite the thrill.

It has been a long time but I think my favorite is still Serial Thriller (now Thunderhawk) at Geauga Lake in Ohio. Apparently this roller coaster now resides at Michigan's Adventure, per wikipedia. Oh how the times have changed.

Haven't been to the parks for a while, but the Raptor is the last one I can remember really liking.
