Ah, I just went to a theme park last week. I would have to say that my favorite is a toss-up between Kraken (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0WoISTrfrg) at Seaworld and Alpengeist (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpPepHYDnwI) at Busch Gardens.

Two of the baddest-assed coasters I've ever been on were Apollo's Chariot (Offspring music completely coincidental) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsXGTDer_U0) at Busch Gardens, and The Volcano (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ae4dgCx6nQg) at King's Dominion, which I'll never ride again.

All at Alton Towers, UK.

I can't really choose a fave, though I remember SheiKra from Busch Gardens Tampa and the Vampire and Goliath from La Ronde (Montreal) are all awesome.

Also: I want to ride Nemesis @ Alton Towers someday. Seen it in RCT and it looks like a killer ride.

The greatest rollercoaster I've been on was the Superman one at Six Flags in Buffalo with my concert buddy from back in the day, Mike (z_911).

The Volcano at King's dominion is fucking awesome. I was so lucky that the day I was there it was empty. I could go like 10 times in a roll withou waiting in line. I'm dying to go to Six Flags though. My favorite till now is Hypersonic at KD.

Only amusement park I've been to is Canada's Wonderland in Toronto. Been there several times. LOVE this place. My favourite coaster there is The Skyrider... aka the standup coaster. The second pic., I absoutely HATE this fucking ride. I went on it once and never again. I swear to God, I thought I was going to fall out when we were upside down midair for about 10 sec. Never again. And it takes A LOT to scare me cause I could literally live at amusement parks.

I've really only been on the rollercoasters at Valleyfair in Minnesota, but my favorite is the Wild Thing. It boasts the longest zero-G zone in the world:

I generally dislike rollercoasters but usually have fun on them.

The Cyclone at Coney Island is a New York institution. I think it's even a national landmark. I had the extreme misfortune of thinking it would be a good idea to ride it this weekend. I spent all Sunday thinking I had whiplash, and my neck is still kind of fucked up by it. I don't know what I'd do without Tiger Balm.

Man, I LOVE rollercoasters. Unfortunately, I've just been in one park with real rollercoasters - Tusenfryd outside Oslo, Norway. But it's really fun to be there. =D

This is the rollerscoaster "Thundercoaster", and it's concidered to be the most amazing WOODEN rollercoaster.

This is maybe not the most impressive rollercoaster, but what's REALLY impressive, is that the coaster accelerate from 0-almost 60 mph (0-90 kmh) on just 2.2 sec!! That's even faster then todays Formula 1 cars!

Not to be elitist or anything, but ValleyFair is cute, but pretty lame for coasters. Wild Thing is the closest thing to a decent coaster that they have, and it's still pretty lame. The only cool part is, in fact, the zero-G section.

Superman Ultimate Flight (not sure if it's the same coaster that Betty talked about) has the track above you, and before it takes off, your seats tip forward, so that you have nothing below you, and you are looking down at the ground. The loops are inverted, so when you're in the bottom of the loop, you're staring straight up at the sky. It's insane.

I was never at a rollercoaster in my entire life, but I heard the Beast and Son of the Beast in the US are pretty nasty. In Austria we've just got the lame ones. Even those I've never tried.
