The USA Today Reader's Choice Top 10 Rollercoasters in America!

Do you love roller coasters? Apparently a lot of people do! According to a new poll from CBS News roller coasters are America’s favorite amusement park rides favored by 35% of people! Next up are bumper cars.13% of people chose those as their favorite followed by the Ferris Wheel at 10% and the classic log ride at 10%. I used to love the log flume at Rocky Point!

I also love a good roller coaster. My favorites are the newer, faster ones as opposed to the old wooden ones. I know many of you prefer those classics, but those rides beat you up a little too much for my taste. In January I'm going back to Universal Studios in Orlando and I'm dying to ride the new Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. That opened last Summer during the pandemic, and it's made USA Today's 2021 Reader's Choice's list of the Top 10 Roller Coasters in the U.S.! I've never ridden any of these, how about you? In fact, most of these coasters I've never even heard of! I guess I've got some traveling to do! Check out the Top 10!
