I think the track length figures for Boulder Dash and El Toro should be in feet, not square feet.

Hey other commenters, this top 6 list isn't the author's personal rankings, it's from the 2014 Golden Ticket Awards, which is based on Amusement Today's annual survey of well-traveled amusement park enthusiasts from around the world.

The Beast by far exceeds any of these rides. It has been open since April 1979 and is still tearing though the woods at 60mph. #andstill the worlds longest wooden rollercoaster since April 1979 when the ride was first opened.

What happened to The Beast at King's Island??

Boulder Dash at #1 is the best roller coaster I've ever been on. Well deserving of the top spot. It's just incredible, hugging the side of a mountain, and going through trees with lots and lots of airtime.

We're supposed to believe ALL the world's most spectacular wooden coasters are in the USA? Seriously, nothing in Europe or Asia?

"Customer Coaster International" HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Too funny. Did you run out of room to post a YouTube link to Ravine Flyer II ? I kept looking for the third page of the article since the entire thing seems to have stopped dead in the middle of a paragraph.
