Hey, I’m Katy and welcome to my new coaster/theme park blog. I’m intending this to be a much less formal blog which focusses on my coaster crazy hobby, with trip reports, photos and anything else I can think of.
I’m planning to visit a lot of new parks this year, so I’m going to put my current top 10 steel and top 10 wood coasters here, so I can see how much things have changed this time next year. I’ve not been on any coasters outside of the UK recently – except a few when I had a trip to Paris when I was a kid – so can’t remember any of those rides.
Current top 10 steel:
|1||Big One||Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK|
|2||Icon||Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK|
|3||Nemesis||Alton Towers, UK|
|4||Saw – The Ride||Thorpe Park, UK|
|5||Nemesis Inferno||Thorpe Park, UK|
|6||Munich/Olympia Looping||Winter Wonderland, UK|
|7||Stealth||Thorpe Park, UK|
|8||Revolution||Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK|
|9||Swarm||Thorpe Park, UK|
|10||Th13teen||Alton Towers, UK|
Now for the top 10 wood – okay it’s a top 8 as, although I’ve been on more wooden coasters than this (e.g. Southport and Frontierland) they were as a kid and I don’t remember them).
|1||Wild Mouse||Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK|
|2||Grand National (lifthill right track)||Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK|
|4||Wicker Man||Alton Towers, UK|
|5||Big Dipper||Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK|
|6||Nickelodeon Streak||Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK|
|7||Grand National (lifthill left track)||Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK|
|8||Blue Flyer||Blackpool Pleasure Beach, UK|
Yes I have split Grand National into two – in its current state end of season 2022, one side is brilliant, the other side painfully rough.
