The top 25 rollercoasters in the world (according to Theme Park Review)

Or rather the 366 people who took part in the poll, it wasn't TPR exclusive...

 

Lack of ridership stopped T Express being top 10 which is incredibly disappointing, but at least Helix beat Taron and Shambhala. #TeamHelix

I’m surprised Nemesis doesn’t feature on that poll.

 

Then again, I rarely follow a theme park community that insists on banning people if they prefer Pepsi to Coke (amongst other silly reasons).

 

Glad Helix & Taron made the cut though.

Intamin could make a ride that literally melts off your genitals and it would be a top 10 coaster on TPR...

Then take part in the next one? You're well travelled, you've got a good chance of making a difference.

I wouldn't want to have any part of that site, I'd probably get banned for suggesting that Oz'Iris is well themed (because they don't think the queue is as they only used Fastrack)...

Dammit @Mark9 I’m envious of the amount of B&Ms you’ve ridden - how many in total have you done?  I’ve done a whopping 7 🤣

 

I’ve done 35 in total. I am a little B&M biased though. They’ve been my favourite manufacturer for years. Which 7 have you done?

35?!! If I had the money and wasn’t petrified of planes I’d love to ride every single B&M.  Never gonna happen so I just gawk at POVs 

 

The ones I’ve done (in order of preference) are -

 

1) Nemesis 

2) Black Mamba

3) Oblivion

4) Baron

5) The Swarm

6) Gactica

7) Nemmy Inferno

 

So 3 inverts, one flyer, 2 dives and a wing.

 

The one I’ve been wanting to ride the most (since it pretty much first opened) is Incredible Hulk but I’d love to do a hyper aswell.  6 years ago I’d ridden none so I’m not doing too bad I guess

4/ Baron 1898

5/ Nemesis Inferno 

6/ Silver Star 

7/ Swarm

8/ Oblivion 

9/ Galactica/Air 

10/ Dragon Khan, 

 

Only 10, I guess. Should probably try and visit more parks.  Parc Asterix, Garda and Tivoli Gardens next I suppose.

  8. Kraken

I had made a B&M list a while back, but after a few rides on Nemesis not too long ago and many rides on Swarm I do prefer Swarm to Nemesis (hence why I bumped up Swarm a few spots). Unpopular I know but I do think Nemesis is far too overhyped.

I'm uneasy about the word over-hyped (or over-rated) in any context these days. It seems to imply a 'only I can see Nemesis for what it is' vibe whereas maybe its just a case that Nemesis just isn't for you.

Think it might also be an issue of when someone rode Nemesis. I was quite fortunate that Nemesis was more of the kick-starter into coaster enthusiasm (17 years ago! I rode it before some people on this forum even existed!) so I had no real knowledge of it, whereas a lot of enthusiasts who have been in the game a bit before going up there will end up being no doubt disappointed because of the aura many of us give it because it is something of the highest quality.

 

Also some like to hate on it because it's going against the grain.

 

It can also have off days no doubt, so those moments of Scarefest rainy night rides can be completely opposite to cold March mornings.
