I'd have to say Kumba is the best looking coaster with it's lack of theming. The colors on that coaster are really cool.

X, that coaster looks amazing when you drive into SFMM. And when I went it was running too, so it looked even better :).

Millie = pretty (especially at night)

I've definitely got a joint thing going on between Shivering Timbers and Boulder Dash (but don't tell either one I'm thinking about the other ;))

I'm with Den on this one.
Mean Streak is one of the most visually impressive coasters around.
Still never fails to get the dropped jaw reaction when you take a first timer to the point and head around back to the resorts. :)

Any good terrain woodie. Boulder Dash, Boss, etc. At night, Millennium Force is a nice sight.

I would have said Mean Streak, but this one really blew me away

Mean Streak is nice, but not awsome. I think that the main Millennium Force hill and it's overbanked turn is the prettiest. It's literall art.

yeah that white cyclone is a sight to behold... too bad i'll never probably see it in person.
just to make an interesting side note... ugliest coaster.... any wooden coaster in need of new coat of paint... nothing like chipped paint on wood to make a coaster look bad.

Rattler, Beast, Mean Streak, Sonny, Tx Giant....
What can I say, HUGE woodies are at least nice to LOOK at...shame they *normally* don't ride that well...with the exception of Giant, that thing is a BEAST...(pun abslutely intended).
Among steelies, I love the looks of the spaghetti bowls, but Kumba and S:KC certainly have *steel appeal*...

Since no one else is bound to say it, I really like how Pepsi Max towers over the whole of BPB. A little more airtime wouldn't have hurt either...

American Eagle had a similar beauty to White Cyclone when it first opened, age has not been kind to the Gurnee resident. When the trees part and you first see the half-mile long wooden mountain range that is Shivering Timbers how can you not be impressed. TG and MS are great to look at, MS is better to look at and TG is better to ride.

I've seen some beautiful pics of it (Pepsi Max) lit up at night..pretty ride. I'd also say the same for MF all lit up. *** Edited 10/1/2004 7:29:11 PM UTC by Peabody***

I like the way Nitro looks with the sweeping curves and the sparse supports. Same effect as Kumba, just without the loops.
As far as ugly wooden coasters go, again doubt anyone will say it, but Roller Coaster at Lagoon looks like a piece of ***t. Now it gives a surprisingly awesome ride, but it looks like it hasn't been maintained in ages.

I think Colossus @ MM in its prime was without a doubt one of the best looking coasters out there. Check out some of the pics on rcdb.com, and you'll understand. Don't hate me cause I'm going with 2 MM coasters, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and pick Viper @ MM. Night pics of that ride are unbelievable.

I'll second Lightning Racer.

Let the hi-jackings begin. ;)
The best looking coaster was Apollo's Chariot with Fabio and the other toga-clad models riding it. Too bad about the poor goose Fabio killed with his nose. :)

How about the rides at Busch Gardens Williamsburgh you know the most beautiful park in the country. They all look niece.
