I know, Cedar Point has been kicking butt and leaving footprints, I really want to go up there and check out the rides!!! I haven't been to King's Island ever since they were bought by Paramount and the park has just gone into the toilet since then. Too many movie-themed multi-media rides. I want big rollercoasters!

(it helps to go with a fat guy so you get pinned in the seat).

another fave was space mountain in disneyworld. i haven't been there for years. i wonder if it still exists?
They have a wooden roller coaster at six flags magic mountain in CA. Reminded me of the simpsons episode where they rode the "tooth chipper" I swear that thing was going to knock my front teeth out.

I would have to say my favorite is Moctezumas Revenge - I belive that is at Knott's Berry Farm.

Magic Mountain actually has two: The Colossus, which is the white one that you saw in National Lampoon's Vacation, and the Cyclone which is the brown one. The Cyclone is the better of the two because it's newer so it goes much faster. The Colossus is pretty impressive though because it's the first roller coaster that you can see from the parking lot as you're walking towards the main gate.

Had I been asked this question about 30 years ago I would have said the roller coaster but now that the years have passed and I like the slower pace of life I'd have to say my favorite ride is the merry-go-round.

I am 47, and the faster the ride the better! I love just about every ride at Disneyland, but my favorite rides will always be (well, always until my body falls apart even more than it has!) roller coasters.

I get so sick on merry-go-rounds! All that going around and around and around. I just can't handle it!
