Quality not Quantity

What parks do you think display this?

For me, definetely BGW. Loch Ness is a great and smooth arrow with a great setting, Alpengiest, a great intense B&M, Apollos Chariot is a great hyper. Wild Mouse is fun too IMO.

Another park is Holiday World, although I've never been there it seems to have 2 GREAT woodies along with other great rides.

What do you think?

But CP has quantity PlayerPunk. I think hes looking for some parks that don't have many coasters, but the coasters they have are good.

Indiana Beach, they have 2 great wooden coasters and 1 good one IMO. Cornball and Lost Coaster are awesome and Hoosier Hurricane is a pretty good coaster.

You are right. The only ones I don't like are corkscrew, mine ride, and mean streak. That is pretty good considering they have 15 coasters.

Some people like it, some don't its not an "ALL HATE" thing like mean streak (although some like it). Its ok, but the stand up cars are painful due to the g's that are pulled on my legs. Other than that its fun.

I would have to say SFDL because they have an almost smooth as glass Boomerang and SLC a pretty good wood and one of the most amazing rides I've ever riden in SROS. The only hyper that beats it is Magnum.

Also Hershey park has a very intense inverted coaster and some of the best wood in PA. Ihave ridden most of the wood in PA by the way exept Knoebels which I'll be visiting Sept 14.

I would say Kennywood would fit in this category. They have what, 5 coasters, but they are ALL top notch.

This is an easy question..... IOA. If you count dueling coasters as two different rides then the park only has 5 coasters-two of which are meant for the younger ones. Yet, I could keep riding the Hulk and DD for the rest of my life.

The only other park that I've been to that has a small coaster collection of high quality is SFMW. Medusa is now one of my favorite coasters ever.

I like every ride at Holiday World. Except the bumper boats...I suppose you can say I'm anti-bumper-boat.

Yomiuri Land and Fujikyu Highland are my two best examples for this one. These two park have been able to bring in the best in each category that they build in an are able to maintain and care for all their attraction while bring the best show as well.

In terms of coasters:

Yomiuri Land

Bandit-this coaster just screams out prepare to be amazed. The Bandit was the first thrilling coaster ever built that was made out of steel that did not have any inversions. From day nothing was expected when riding this. But that all changes once you take the dive taht leads into the world's first overbanked turn and into a 256 foot drop. The huge drops an laterals of this ride started a whole new legacy of coasters. After riding the Bandit, you'll know why the hyper coaster became so popular an you'll experience the father of the mega coaster, Bandit.

White Canyon-it's more than one of the most beautiful coasters out there. It's the Coney Island Cyclone on steroids and quite possibly the best of the cyclones. This coaster is known for having great laterals, tight, twisted transitions and a double dip that will throw you over.

Looping Stand Up Coaster-when they wanted to build something extreme they built it, and when they wanted some thing fun that people could sitdown and enjoy, they built. Witness, the world's only sitdown/stand up coaster. This ride, though short, brought a new meaning to capacity while giving three seperate ride experiences(forward sitdown, backwards sitdown, and stand up) This ride 3 and 1 punch show what a classic looper should be in today's world, and with a little technique from SoperDooperLooper Man, himself, they created a ride that thrills everyone.

SL Coaster-this is the msot creative family coaster I've seen. A mite mouse style coaster with pick up trucks as cars of which the children can pretend to stear the car and honk the horn. It also features some pretty clever theming. Like a stoplight at the brake run and the station.

Islands of Adventure is my favorite theme park. And it only has three "real" coasters. But the themeing, and the food, and the atmosphere make it a very high quality park, along with excellent water rides and shows. Much better than say ... SFWOA or um, some other SF park where all they do is pack in coasters, yet have a dirty and overall poor park atmoshpere.

I'd say Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. The two coasters that I rode, I could do all day long. Also, the Busch Parks (BGW, BGT, SWO), and IOA.

I still question the authenticness of the 256 foot drop. Why would it's top speed be only 68.3 mph?

Thank you, I'm glad someone with at least half a brain chimed in to say this because cedar point is the absolute last answer anyone should have to this question. Boasting the most coasters of any amusement park in the U.S., Cedar Point hardly satisfies the "quality over quantity" slogan.

Yep. I like CP as much as the other guy but it has no place in this thread. Why do we always have to talk about CP? WAIT-You just tricked me into putting it into my response. Thanks a lot:)

IOA would get my vote. It's a small park with only a handfull of rides, but the details are incredible. I'm not talking only coasters here, but the entire park is perfect for the quality. not quantity slogan.

Ok then. So what if there are 15 coasters? Most of them are of all good quality. And if you take out the bad ones, then your left with the good ones, which is still over ten, but less thans some other parks. I seriously doubt that anybody here likes every single roller coaster at CP. Maybe, but not likely.

DorneyDante - Ever been to CP? I would bet you lots of money that you would like over half of the coaster there. And no offense, but if you don't, the your pretty wacked up.

Then I must be pretty wacked up! ;)

Mantis is still the only ride I REALLY like at CP. But then again, only in the front seat.

Raptor used to be fun, but then I rode Montu!:) MF does nothing for me, as it's all speed and no air. Magnum, once a great coaster, is just painfull now.

Although I can see why so many people like the park. :)
