All Disney Parks in the World – Ranked

Sean: We’ve had the amazing opportunity to visit each Disney park in the world in the past year (in 9 months, actually). We’re critics – and couldn’t help but compare every experience at each Disney park. We’ve reasoned back and forth, and have ultimately decided to compile a comprehensive ranking to share with the world. Below is a list of all Disney parks, ranked from worst to best!

Fuji-Q Highland: The Six Flags Magic Mountain of Japan

Alexander: Ok, the title of this article is kind of a loaded statement. How is Fuji-Q like Magic Mountain? Like, besides the obvious reasons?

To be honest, they’re not as similar as we’d originally pictured; Fuji-Q Highland is shockingly small, and, despite their 4 major coasters drawing some obvious parallels, their collection of coasters overall is just a fraction fo the size of Magic Mountain’s. Still, we know a lot of Six Flags Magic Mountain fans who will take personal interest in the similarities between the parks, and, as long as we have a “Cedar Point of Japan” (Nagashima Spa Land), we might as well have a Japanese Magic Mountain.

10 Underrated Disney Attractions

Alexander: When you run the biggest theme park chain in the world, your biggest successes become household names. I would bet money that the number of households in the U.S. that have heard of Space Mountain outweigh the number that haven’t, and Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most globally-recognized intellectual properties  (thank you, Johnny Depp).

10 Coasters That Should Be RMC’d (And 10 That Shouldn’t)

Alexander: Here at Coaster Kings, we like to fantasize about how things could be. We like imagining how things could be better (or at least different), especially when it comes to coaster performance.

By now, pretty much every enthusiast has had a “this needs to be RMC’d” moment when riding a wooden coaster that isn’t what it could be, but in the wake of a baker’s dozen Rocky Mountain Coasters Iron Horse projects since 2011’s game-changing New Texas Giant, the conversation has changed.

Top 50 Coaster States

Alexander: Since we love lists, we thought it was time for something a little different: a ranking of all 50 States, in order of coaster quality.

Quality is key, here; it would be very easy to just list states based on # of coasters, but that wouldn’t be very interesting. We’ve compiled our countdown based on a comprehensive look at each state and its coasters, carefully scrutinizing each one down to every possible comparison.

We know which states have more or less; today we consider which are best. Continue reading “Top 50 Coaster States”
