I'm not sure if I have a list posted, but here is my current list.

Steel:

1.Maverick- I thought the mix of airtime and inversions was great. Although a bit rough, it was not unbearable. Great ride.

2.Nitro-What can I say, I love Nitro.

3.Storm Runner-Short and to the point. Storm Runner is awesome, though the more I ride, the more my shoulders take a beating.

4.Alpengheist-I love Alpengheist. I am contemplating on moving it up on my list. The g's are great.

5.Millenium Force-I feel this has to be on here just for the pure speed and height. This is almost a default choice. Airtime was serioulsy lacking, but I still had a great time on it.

Wood:

1.El Toro- Although my last few rides haven't been that great, it is still my top wood.

2.Comet(Hersheypark)-The airtime on this is really good. I love the feel of the wood as the train goes through the course

3.Cyclone(Coney Island)-Even though it continues to get rough, and I can't ride it more than a few times in a row, the airtime and nastalgic feeling I get riding it is awesome.

4.Phoneix-I liked Phoenix, and really liked the airtime, but I have to say I enjoyed Comet better. Maybe I should have sat in the famous third row.

5.Lightning Racer(Lighthing or Thunder)- I like Lighting better, but they are pretty much the same.

I left Apollo's Chariot off the list because while a really good ride, I felt it lacking something. Maybe I didn't like the layout too much, but it left me wanting more.

Apollo's Chariot wasn't nearly as good as the last time I rode it... so much so that it fell out of my top 5... had a couple great rides on Nitro so it popped in instead. And I've decided after riding El Toro 9 times in 2 days that I definitely like Voyage better.

1. El Toro- This coaster has the most forceful airtime of any coaster I have ridden. Every hill has ejector airtime and it's one of the smoothest coasters I have ever been on. Not to mention it has the best first drop I have ever experienced.

2. Storm Runner- This rocket coaster has my favorite launch of any coaster. It starts off with the famous "Now get ready, here we GO!" That just gets my adrenaline pumping. The top hat has very strong ejector airtime and it has 3 amazing inversions. It always offers a smooth ride and guarantees airtime.

3. Griffon- It has to be one of the most intimidating coasters you can look at. Griffon has amazing floater airtime on both of the big drops and some like airtime on the two bunny hills. The holding brake in the front row is truly an amazing experience. Also, this is the smoothest coaster I have ridden.

4. Nitro- The best hyper coaster I have been on. This ride has an abundance of floater airtime from the first drop all the way to the final brake run. The first drop is one of the best I have experienced and I can always count on this ride to provide.

5. Apollo's Chariot- One of the best coasters around for airtime. The airtime is a little more forceful than Nitro's but there just isn't as much. If Apollo was as long as Nitro it would take the cake but it just isn't quite long enough.

6. Kingda Ka- Might be the most intense 30 seconds of my life. The launch is so forceful and long, airtime 456 feet in the air, and then looking straight down the spiral! But that isn't all. Then you go over a bunny hill with ridiculous speed and nice floater airtime. This coaster is just awesome.

7. Volcano: The Blast Coaster- This coaster has a very fun launch. It really isn't that strong compared to Kingda Ka or Storm Runner, but it still is fun. What puts this coaster in my top ten is coming out of the volcano 155 feet in the air upside down. It's truly a unique experience that everyone should try.

8. Medusa- My favorite original floorless coaster. It has a great first drop and some intense inversions. Not to mention it has the best zero-g roll I have been on. The coaster has some great length and its just pure fun.

9. Talon: The Grip of Fear- This is my favorite B&M invert. It has a very intense compact layout. All the inversions have strong positive g's and it even has an airtime drop near the end of the ride. My favorite part it the low to the ground turn before the corkscrew.

10. Phoenix- The coaster didn't quite meet my expectations but it's super fun. It has airtime EVERYWHERE you go. The airtime ranges from floater to ejector and just having a lap bar helps the airtime.

Well, after a recent trip, Superman: Ride of Steel (SFNE of course) is now my #1 steel and Boulder Dash is now my #2 woodie, barely beating out Phoenix and nearly beating out El Toro.
