The Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain, Indiana Beach, Monticello, IN


it's a fun little ride at a small park in Indiana, but i adore it above all the rest simply because it is unlike any other roller coaster out there.

ever.

and it's the roughest son of a bitch, too. lots of fun. you sit there and cuss and rattle the whole time.

I just got back from Florida where I went to Islands of Adventure. The best ride there was probably The Incredible Hulk which would also be the best one that I've ever been on.

A small park, but it's reckoned to have one of the best wooden roller coasters in the world.

I haven't been on a roller coaster for years  Sad , but Space Mountain at Disney World is a classic!

The Wild, Wild West rollercoaster at Warner Bros. Movie World in Bottrop, Germany is a pretty decent wooden coaster.

Best Ride in the World (X at Six Flags Magic Mountain)

The ride is as sensitive as a woman but it's worth the long wait.

Riddler's Revenge

I haven't been to Magic Mountain in over 5 years, but that was by far my favorite coaster there. And still is.

After that it would probably be Viper at Magic Mountain. Despite being over 15 years old it is still pretty big, still pretty fast, and still pretty fun.


I was at Islands of Adventure a few months back and rode the 3 coasters there. I thought the Hulk was ok, but I was caught off guard by the launch. It didn't seem as fast as the specs say it is. I preferred Dueling Dragons Fire the most. Though from where I was sitting on Fire and Ice I never really saw the 3 times the two coasters met.
