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.

Megafobia at Oakwood in the UK.

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.

Hell, most rides at Magic Mountain:

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.

The best one in my life time so far:

Black Mamba in the Phantasialand theme park (Brühl, Germany)

http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/3592/blackmamba23xw0.jpg

Image source: http://www.coastersandmore.de/rides/blackmamba/blackmamba.php

Facts and figures:

  • Inverted coaster
  • First rollercoaster to feature an "Inclined Immelmann"
  • Maximum g-forces of 4,5
  • Closest near-miss of only 50cm (1.64 feet)
  • Costs of the rollercoaster at about 11 million € (14.8 million $) and another 11 million € for theming around the coaster
  • Maximum velocity of 80 kph (50 mph)

Just a few-

Some of the bigger ones-
Montu- Busch Gardens Africa
Kumba- Busch gardens Africa
Rampage- Alabama Adventure
Georgia Cyclone- Six Flags over Georgia
The Loch Ness Monster- Busch Gardens Europe

Some of the smaler ones I really enjoy
Cannon Ball- Lake Winnepesauka (the smoothest woodie I've ever been on.)
Big Bad Wolf- Bisch Gardens Europe
Rock and Roller Coaster- Opryland
Mind Bender- Six Flags over Georgia
Scorpion- Busch Gardens Africa

My favorite overall would have to be Montu, however.

This summer, I'll really be adding to my resume as we are planning trips to Holiday World, Dollywood, Beech Bend and Busch Gardens Europe (I haven't been since 1988), SFOG and SF Kentucky Kingdom. On a trip next week to Florida, I might try to hit Islands of Adventure, BGA or Cypress Gardens.

**** me. I must have a go on that.

My top 3

1. Nemesis (alton Towers, UK) Rough & Fast
2. Oblivion (Alton Towers, UK) It pushes you forward as it releases you at the top of the drop, which makes you open your mouth and then you can't breath as the air rushes in from the drop.
3. Rock n rollercoaster (MGM,Disney) Fast and dark and you don't have a clue what is coming next
