Thunder Dolphin | Most Wanted Roller Coasters

Thunder Dolphin Looks Like Urban Coaster Goodness! I’ve always been a fan of terrain coasters as they utilize the unique layout of the land that they sit on. A roller coaster like Thunder Dolphin uses the man-made terrain of Tokyo as riding along the top of buildings and diving down through a cut-out in one, and then flying through the hub of a Ferris wheel. As I’ve argued in the past,...[Read More]

Most Wanted | Formula Rossa – World’s Fastest Roller Coaster

While I wouldn’t call Kingda Ka the best roller coaster it is an experience that I recommend every coaster fan or thrill seeker should try at least once. The feeling of that 128 mph launch is incredible. I’m sure Cedar Point’s Top Thrill Dragster gives a similarly exhilarating ride. I wouldn’t know as it broke down while I was in the queue. Having said that, I’m not t...[Read More]

Tremors at Silverwood | Most Wanted Roller Coasters

Is Tremors at Silverwood An Underrated Coaster? Silverwood (Athol, Idaho) is the largest theme park in the Northwest. It doesn’t have a very large coaster lineup, but the 1999 CCI woodie, Tremors, seems to be pretty highly regarded. It’s ranked an impressive 9th in the U.S. and 17th in the World in Mitch Hawker’s 2010 Internet Wooden Coaster Poll. With a unique layout that includ...[Read More]

Colossus | Most Wanted Roller Coasters

Thorpe Park’s Colossus opened in 2002 as the the first roller coaster to have ten loops. Today, it still holds the record as no roller coaster has went for eleven inversions yet. While I’m sure it’d be a dizzying ride I love looping roller coasters so I’d be fun to take the challenge someday. The Intamin-designed coaster has a vertical loop, cobra roll (2), double corkscrew...[Read More]

Black Mamba | Most Wanted Roller Coasters

This Bolliger & Mabillard low flying inverted coaster looks like a fun ride. Located at Phantasialand in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, the African-themed coaster dives below the ground a number of times. It’s subterranean sections are reminiscent of Montu’s Egyptian-themed trenches and Nemesis’s low flight path. It appears to spend even more time underground than those two...[Read More]
