I've been a rollercoaster nut since my dad took me on a rickety old wooden coaster at Pacific Ocean Park in Santa Monica (gone now )when I was pretty young. The new ones destroy all the old wooden ones. X at Magic Mtn in LA was unreal. You don't know which way your going, up or down, backwards or forward. Amazing. Goliath is a huge tubed coaster with a mega first drop, probably my favorite. So many coasters there now. Don't get on them much anymore, but I still like them. Even the spinning type stuff, like the thing where the floor drops out from under you and your pinned against the wall

But I'll take Disneyland anyday if I have the choice Space Mountain is right up there with the best And it's just a lot more enjoyable place to be

I used to go on them.......not lately tho. I loved the Matterhorn at Disneyland the most! It's very tame compared to some of the newer ones now!!

Disneyland is my personal Happy Place.

I have to go at least every three months or so.

Whenever I'm stressed out at work, I mentally walk myself around the park and I instantly feel better.

I agree. Expedition Everest at the Animal Kingdom is pretty cool at night, too--as you go up the first lift hill, you can see everywhere! I like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at night, too.

I love them, but I've only ever been on about five or so, because basically all the theme parks in this country are restricted to a single place.

Being from Cleveland and Detroit, I've been to Cedar Point about 20-30 times and have been going for over 30 years (even since moving to Tennessee).

I love the older coasters at CP: the mine ride, Gemini, Blue Streak. Magnum is my favorite of the newer coasters there.

Last week, I discovered the Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach, SC and rode on the Led Zeppelin coaster there.
Stand up to rock stars!

Love them! Fortunately I'm only 4 hours from one of the best amusement parks for roller coasters on the planet, Cedar Point, mentioned above. I will ride just about anything. Not a fan of a ton of loops though as it will give me a headache. Millenium Force at CP is my favorite.

Im a wimp!

If there was ever a rollercoaster that had a track along it say head height, and a dip in the middle that went down to ground level, I would be bent over holding onto my ankles and going

I love the Griffon at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. It has a 90 degree drop, 205 feet up! And it's the world's tallest floorless dive coaster. It literally puts you in that place where you feel like you're in another world.

me too! I love the zippy dippy leave your stomach in the sky rides but there's something about that ferris wheel cabin swinging ever so slightly in the breeze that makes me :shudder:
