Just Published: Theme Park Insider: 2016 Year in Review
Superman: Ultimate Flight
Big Thunder Mountain
Toy Story Mania
Magnum XL 200
I would also add Twister...or as I like to call it, Cow On A Cable...
What coasters are overrated, IMO Phoenix at Knoebels, Shivering Timbers at MiA and Bolderdash at Lake Compounce.
Underrated would be Cyclone at Six Flags New England in the back row only though.
Underrated? Jaws. So what if the shark is fake? It's still a great ride!
Anyways, the most overrated ride is definitely TSM. It's just a glorified wii game on wheels and just so happens to be in 3D, like everything else.
The most underrated ride? The tram ride that saves you from extra walking to your car. Bonus points if you get a tram guy that loves to sing along the way.
Overrated: The Mummy
Underrated: Raging Bull
Intimidator 305 (KD)
Space Mountain (Disneyland)
Blue Streak (CP)
Mystery Mine (Dollywood)
California Screamin' (DCA)
Riddler's Revenge (SFMM)
Toy Story Midway Mania (DCA)
Alice in Wonderland (Disneyland)
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters (Disneyland)
Lost Kingdom Adventure (LC)
Disneyland Railroad (Disneyland)
La Revolucion (KBF)
Disneyland Monorail (Disneyland)
As for Raging Bull it could be both. Its definely underrated in the caster industry but overrated for SFGAm collection. V2 Batman and American Eagle are much betteer rides. Raging Bull in the back espically on the first drop is a wonderful ride though
The Hulk is fairly overpraised as well. A great launch with very little follow-through.
Underrated? I'll go with some of the wild mouse coasters such as Goofy's Sky School at CA. I usually get a kick out of them.
Oh, and Soarin' is easily the most overrated ride period. What was supposed to be Disney's answer to Spider-man, turned out to be their answer to Back to the Future... and a poor response at that. If Disney was still firing on all cylinders, Soarin' could of been what Harry Potter ended up being. Don't even get me started on the nonsense of the carbon copy in Epcot. A cheap cash grab if I ever saw one.
Mean Streak's roughness the ride was not THAT bad
- Space Mountain WDW
- Incredible Hulk Coaster
Magnum XL 200
Top Thrill Dragster/Kingda Ka

One that I feel doesn't get the credit it deserves is the Country Bears Jamboree.
Over rated: rip ride and rocket ( universal orlando)
under rated: montu (busch gardens tampa)
Underrated. . . American Eagle (SFGA) and I really like Shivering Timbers at Michigan's Adventure.
Under ratted rides our
Pirates of the Carribean
buzz light year space ranger spin
The Amazing Adventures Of Spider-Man
Living With The Land
underated-EL TORO! TTA, One mans dream
Space Mountain at Disneyland (Don't get me started...I have no clue what the big freaggin' deal about this ride is...Its not that great people...GET. OVER. IT.)
Scream at SFMM (Its smooth with awesome airtime and relatively short lines...if everyone can just get over the fact that its built over part of the original parking lot and concentrate on the ride itself, then it would be getting the love it deserves....)
I really like to poke fun at The Mummy.
"hey, way to scare me with those... ummm, neon signs?"
I can't believe people wait over 10 minutes for that 'ride'.
Soarin. Que was over an hour and it was the last time I ever ride somthing just becuase everyone else wants to.
Rip, Ride, Rockit. Yea, Great drop but it really wasnt as good as I thought it would be.
Hulk. I spent ages back in 2001 getting the balls to go on it. I wish I had gone on Doctor Doom twice instead.
Jaws. Its old. It sometimes breaks down. BUT when its working, and working with ALL the features, espicially at dusk. Its awesome.
X-Men Storm Force Acceleration. OKay, its the teacup ride but you can really get some G's on that ride!
Carousel of Progress. I must have been on this 20 times. Every time we go I say the same. "We will do it if we get time, but its not on my priority list" and yet, I have yet to visit WDW and NOT go on this. Missed out on Space and Splash mountains occasionally, Walked away from Jurassic Park becuase I wanted to beat the traffic. That song I think is to blame. "Theres a great big beautiful tomorrow...." you get the idea :)
