Superman: Ride of Steel Retains Title as Top Steel Coaster
This year’s steel coaster Amusement Today Golden Ticket Awards weren’t half as interesting as the Top Wooden Coasters. There were no new entries from the Class of 2007 just a re-shifting of last year’s list. With Cedar Point coasters always ranking so high, I was surprised that Maverick didn’t make the list. I’m not as surprised about Griffon or Mystery Mine. They’re both great coasters, but not quite top ten material.
Superman: Ride of Steel at Six Flags New England is definitely deserving of the top spot. Check out my full ride review including an onride video.
Below is the complete Top 10 Steel Coasters:
