Welcome and Top 10s

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:

Top 10 Steel Coasters – January 2023

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).

Top 8 Wood Coasters – January 2023

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.
