This is my favorite coaster out of both steel AND wood coasters.

6 Flags Great Adventure

The best Wooden Coaster ever hands down!

2 The Voyage

The most intense wooden coaster out there, it's an airtime machine! Better than the beast - u_maddox_bro

No better airtime. Representin the best state in America

3 Outlaw Run

I think El Toro is better, but this needs to be higher! I want to ride it so bad!

Son of Beast more xtreme than it, but Son of Beast is closed.

The best next to el toro

4 Lightning Rod

Lightning rod for the win. the quad down is my favorite element on any coaster - theinsanelycooljaredkleinman

The worlds first and fastest wood launch coaster

5 The Beast

I put this at number 1

This is better than el toro

Better than mystic timbers!

The Beast beats you up a little, sure, but only if you're new: it's preparing you. With some practice, you learn to avoid any and all headaches from the ride... It is thrilling, but not too intense. You think the theme, when you're new, is that you are trying to escape the "Beast." Soon though, you become aware that you aren't running from the Beast: you are the Beast, running through the forest. It's a classic.

6 Phoenix

Airtime is surprisingly insane.

Lots of air time

7 Goliath (Six Flags Great America)

This is a RMC Hybrid...but I don't know - Poseidon

8 Boulder Dash

Just a great ride down a mountainside

OKAY, THIS HAS CONTINUOUSLY BEEN RANKED THE BEST ROLLER COASTER IN THE WORLD. It's at Lake Compounce in Bristol, Connecticut, USA. It's so, so, so fast, with great views of the forest and lake. It's built on the hillside, and uses the environment to its advantage. It curves around the mountain, races through the trees, and passes by the lake. Amazing.

9 T Express
10 Lightning Racer

Fun and intense!

The Newcomers

? Wildfire

The Contenders

11 American Eagle

6 Flags Great America

12 Troy
13 Texas Giant

6 Flags Gret Adventure

14 The Cyclone

My first wooden roller coaster

15 GhostRider

MY GOD! So LONG! Only pause is when you've went through so much you feel like you need to barf, then you see that you aren't even half way! Totally worth it to ride.

16 The Thunderhead

17 Megafobia

Love the massive 55 degrees first drop. Just remember to brace at the end as the brakes are quite sharp... Camera is on the left of the second drop.

My 2nd favorite coaster!

18 Rolling Thunder

This ride is gone

19 American Thunder

I have ridden this coaster more than any other coaster so I can tell you that it is spectacular. It is pretty intense and has a super insane drop. It has some airtime. The best thing is that the lines are so short that you can just marathon this roller coaster. I believe I once rode this 14 times in a row. Other times I rode it 13 times in a row 12 times in a row 10 times in a row and 8 times in a row. Ninja also has super short lines but you cannot marathon it like you can with American Thunder because it is a super headbanger that would give me a migrane if I rode it like American Thunder.

20 Shivering Timbers

Good ride!

21 The Comet

A classic! - coasterjunkie196

22 The Viper

23 Wicker Man (Alton Towers)

It just opened and it is absolutely amazing! No other wooden coaster can provide such an experience! Best wooden coaster in the UK and further proves that Alton Towers is the best park in the UK, and is definitely in the top 3 in Europe!

24 Cu Chulainn (Tayto Park)

It's the highest wooden roller coaster in Europe and it's quite scary but super fun

25 Son of Beast

Why is this on the list? its closed.

26 Mean Streak

SMOOTH?! Yeah, sorta like making love to Joan Jett in the back of a rusty van going down a dirt road.

This on is probably the smoothest wooden coaster I've been on.

This is the smoothest wooden roller coaster in roller coaster history.

27 Blue Streak
28 Gemini
