    Re: What's the most RIDICULOUS/SCARY/AWESOME rollercoaster you have ever been on???

    I've done a lot of coasters, but some of the coolest ones I've thought were ridiculous/scary/awesome...

    1. Xcelerator (Knott's Berry Farm) Category: Scary/Awesome
    2. Silver Bullet (Knott's Berry Farm) Category: Awesome
    3. Batman the Ride (Six Flags Magic Mountain) Category: Awesome
    4. Riddler's Revenge (Six Flags Magic Mountain) Category: Scary/Awesome
    5. Revolution (Six Flags Magic Mountain) Category: Ridiculous
    6. Gold Rusher (Six Flags Magic Mountain) Category: Ridiculous
    I am a rabid Disney fan. Possible future Imagineer (already designing rides for it)... I've only been to Disneyland. I'm hoping to go to Disney World this summer for the first time, and TDR might be possible in 3 years.

    First DL trip - 1997

    First WDW trip - N/A

    lol California screamin!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I don't get to many parks with the big coasters but I do love Kraken at Sea World Orlando and Dueling Dragons at USFL. That part where your feet come so close to the feet of the riders on the other coaster going into a loop is amazing to me!

    I've done most rides in SoCal and Magic Mountains X2 is hands down the REDICULOUS/SCARY/AWESOME for me. Sit in the last row so the flames dry out your mouth WOOT!
    Everybody's got a laughin' place-
    trouble is most folks won't take the time to go look for it.

    Re: What's the most RIDICULOUS/SCARY/AWESOME rollercoaster you have ever been on???

    Gotta agree with X2... but I'm also surprised no one has mentioned Tatsu, which I think is equally disoritenting.

    Just returned from Holiday World, and I gotta say that The Voyage is insane. Although you must ride it in the front car to avoid pain.

    El Toro at Great Adventure is probably my favorite crazy ride ever. And very re-ridable.

    Most crazy in terms of pain and agony? Son of Beast, aka Spinal Manipulator. It takes a lot for a coaster to physically hurt me, but that one manages to! I was sore for 30 minutes after, and that never happens to me--not even after the Coney Island Cyclone!
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    Around here, we call Son Of Beast "The Bone Rattler" - and still for good reason even after the work they did on it last year. Haven't been on it since the year it opened - and don't plan on going back on it.

    Awesome: The Beast (King's Island) - I love not being able to see the whole ride laid out in front of you and how you are surrounded by the forest.

    Scary: Superman: The Escape - I was tricked into going on it. I wanted my pic taken in the seat next to my friend then was going to get out, but once I sat down, they locked the bar down and shot off. Freaked the living daylights out of me.

    Ridiculous - Top Gun - oh, excuse me, Flight Deck (as it's now called). Lamest ride at the park. Even Adventure Express is better than that, and that ride stinks.
    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

    Re: What's the most RIDICULOUS/SCARY/AWESOME rollercoaster you have ever been on???

    I remember shaking so much at our Magic Mountain trip about 3 years ago(the 1st time i decided to get on all the coaters). Goliaths drop is high and intense, so is xcelerator at Knotts. Tatsu i think is the funnest coaster. Medusa at SFDK got a really cool drop and intense ride. But im finally going to ride X2 in about 2 weeks so that could be da best!

    Re: What's the most RIDICULOUS/SCARY/AWESOME rollercoaster you have ever been on???

    The only extreme coaster park I've been to is Magic Mountain. I've been on all of those rides with the exception X2 (and even when it was X) and Tatsu. Those rides are all crazy. I can no longer ride coasters due to excessive migraines (except for Disneys CA Screamin which is perfect for me), but when I used to, I'd go on anything. And the worst for me had to be Deja Vu and Scream. Also the most painful was during Halloween when they ran Colossus backwards....ugh worst feeling ever. I was so disoriented after that and couldn't ride anything else the rest of the night.

    Re: What's the most RIDICULOUS/SCARY/AWESOME rollercoaster you have ever been on???

    If you go to coastercounter.com you can put in all of the coasters you have ridden, and get some fun stats.

    I've ridden 146 different coasters, and here are some of my stats:

    Total Inversions (or times you've been upside down): 182(182 Steel and 0 Wood)
    Average Speed: 49.61 mph / 79.84 kph (39.55 mph / 63.65 kph Steel and 53.71 mph / 86.44 kph Wood)
    Distance Climbed: 2.45 miles / 3.95 km (2.09 miles / 3.36 km Steel and 1908.4 feet / 581.68 meters Wood)
    Distance Traveled: 58.71 miles / 94.49 km (46.56 miles / 74.93 km Steel and 12.16 miles / 19.57 km Wood)

    Of course, that's only counting 1 ride, so I'm sure the total distance on coasters is well over 100 miles, just on CA Screamin'.

    Re: What's the most RIDICULOUS/SCARY/AWESOME rollercoaster you have ever been on???

    It's funny to hear everybody's scariest ride is Superman at SFMM. I remember the first time I rode it, it was so scary looking.

    Our daughter rode it when she was like 6 or 7, was freaking out (actually, the only ride she's ever ridden that's freaked her out that much). After the ride was over, she looks over at me and says "That's it?"

    It was classic.

    Meh. My coastercount is 249, I've got you beat by 100+. Although I had to admit, I didn't know you get all those other stats on the coastercount site. I'll have to try that!

    You haven't lived until you have been on The Voyage and El Toro (or Maverick, for that matter).
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    Yeah, hopefully next year we'll get out to Ohio/Indiana for Cedar Point and Holiday World.

    I actually haven't been on a "New" (to me) coaster since October '06. Haven't even made the tirp to Knott's to ride their 2 new ones.

    Ridiculous: Ghostrider (this one outdoes Cyclone, btw...)
    Scary: X2
    Awesome: Mindbender (in Edmonton, Alberta)

    Space Mountain in Disneyland is my favorite rollercoaster but here I am only judging thrill and stuff.
