Coaster Kingdom

About our ratings
Sunday, February 11, 2007

Our ratings summarise a ride review with a star rating of one to five - one being bad, five being good. Although every ride has a rating, it rates it on individual criteria unique to that ride. This is why you should not use the ratings to compare rides head-to-head. Because of this, it is entirely possible that a family ride can get the same rating as the most intense coaster in the world by virtue of the fact that they are rated against their own criteria.


Our highest recommendation, any complaints about five star rides are trivial and you should make every reasonable effort to ride this coaster or attraction. Reviews marked as 'Coaster Kingdom recommends' are of outstanding merit.


A great ride let down by just a few faults, but a ride that you should still make time to enjoy.


A ride worth doing if you have the time, but isn't a stand out attraction and not something that is a particular draw.


While not a dreadful ride, this ride isn't worth making the effort to ride, and if you do, don't expect it to be a particularly memorable experience. It is likely this ride doesn't meet its own criteria.


Avoid. This ride has little or few discernible good points, is unenjoyable or misses the mark quite spectacularly. It is of little or no value to the park or fair that it's in.
