The list was a fun read and more pollically correct than a true representation of "Extreme coasters." The logic was probably to include all three coasters on RCDB over 400 feet tall, with 2 coasters from each of the countries 3 biggest parks (SFMM, CP, and SFGA). My $.02.

When I think of extreme coasters, I think of coasters that break the mold, push the envelope like: Volcano, Sheikra, Expedition Everest, Millennium Force, Kingda Ka, The X, Storm Runner, Rock'n Roller Coaster, the Voyage, Montu, and SOB before the loop was taken out.
If you google "thrill-rides" you can get a better list then what they came up with. It advertises the fact that the "reporter" didn't research anything. What ticks me off is that general public reads this stuff assuming the person is some sort authority, when obviously they couldn't care less about the subject. Picked something to write in 2 minutes and walked with a pay check in their back pocket. What a great job! MSN deserves some flack for lazy reporting. *** Edited 6/26/2007 5:20:00 PM UTC by rc-madness***
