I don't know if I could get on those or not.


I haven't been out to Six Flags {That's what we have here} here in about 7 years. I know there are some new coasters, but, I don't know if I would be brave enough to try them.

I'll ride with you Kadesma! Yesterday we were at D-land and Disney's C.A. and my evil sister (I love her dearly, but it was an evil thing to do) got me on the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. It's named that for a reason. I hated it! I'm not a coaster lover, and would much rather feel a bit safe.

My favorite is at Disney's C. A. - "Soarin' over California". You're in a ski lift type chair (many hooked together) and, as it is a simulator ride with a GIANT screen like an imax, you have the feeling as though you are hangliding over the most beautiful parts of California. You see the Sierra mountains (smelling pine and feeling the cold wind), you go over the orange groves of Camarillo (and smell the oranges), you see the PGA west in Palm Springs, the Navy harbor in San Diego, you fly over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, over some waves in Malibu, etc...it ends at night over Disneyland's Christmas parade, with the fireworks going off over Sleeping Beauty's castle.
It is the most sensory ride ever and you feel as though you've just experienced everything first hand.

Lordy. That's be the SUPERMAN coaster at Six Flags New England!



"Soar on one of the tallest and fastest roller coasters in the world! You'll climb 20 stories high, experience 10 seconds of weightlessness while reach speeds of up to 77 mph on this mile-long ride. "

middie, don't tell me that you have to stand by the "you must be this tall to get on this ride" sign...

I always liked the little boats better, myself - - except those steering wheels always seemed pretty useless.

Actually, I'm a big 'coaster' fan. I don't like the spinning rides (except the scrambler) as I get a little - - I also don't like the 'virtual' rides where you're in a room with a screen (although the one jkath described sounds nice). I think the GOAL of most of those is to make you sick as opposed to giving you an actual thrill... I guess that's it! I like THRILL rides not ones that are designed to make you .
