I admit - I’m a coaster junkie. The title of this post may have confused you, so let me explain. I’ve scoured many of the roller coaster sites across the web, and this is a list of the Top 10 coasters of 2008.

I’ve added a point of view video for each of them, allowing you to ride them….in your underwear. These roller coasters are what I consider the absolute best coasters for 2008 - some of them new, and some of them so good, they still belong in the top 10.

You’ll notice that I have the coaster details for the first six, but I couldn’t find the info for the last four, so I just added my own comments about them.

I started this post months ago, and just got back to finishing it. Luckily, I know you don’t care what I have to say - you just want to see the coasters. Enjoy!

Nice lineup! The behemoth looks awesome, but I'm still standing by my personal favorite - the Drachenfire in Williamsburg, VA.
