One of the best near me is Cedar Point (in Sandusky, Ohio) - I try to go at least once every summer. Anyway, Millenium Force is the best coaster in the park, imho (and that's saying something, there's like 15 coasters in the park and they all kick ass). This thing is f'in crazy. 310 feet high, 90 mph, and the first drop is at 80 degrees - down the entire height of the coaster, all 310 feet. mforce4ox.jpgCorkscrew is another good one, not as good as millenium force, but still pdg. I knew it was old, but It says on the website it was built in 1976 - older than I thought it was, but it still kicks ass. corkscrew.jpgParamount Kings Island is also in Ohio, I've been there a couple times. Son of Beast is the most well known coaster there - apparently it's the only wooden coaster in the world with a loop, last I heard anyway. A view of the Son of Beast son_of_beast_lg.jpg The Vortex is also a good one, one of the best I've ever been on. I remember my head felt like it was about to explode afterwards, but that's all just part of the fun, heh. Vortex_lg1.jpg Any other coaster fanatics on GF? Post some pics and some info of the park it's in. Let's get a collection going.

I went to ceder ppint this summer. Got on all of them except melium force and the dragseter(lines were too long) I liked the raptor the best, all the loops and twists make it great I went to kennywood this year too. Rode the phantom's revenge, they site says the 2nd drop is 230 feet but it does not seem like it. phantom_1lg.jpg Now if you like spinning around and getting sick this is for you maXair.jpg

My work holds Employee Days at Minnesota's theme park. Valleyfair.

Valleyfair's hyper-coaster, Wild Thing, features one of the world's largest weightless zones and a 200-foot, 60-degree drop!

The wait is finally over! Valleyfair Family Amusement Park is proud to announce the latest addition to its already impressive roster of coasters - Steel Venom, a 185-foot impulse coaster!

misc_SteelVenom_1.jpg

Valleyfair's classic wooden coaster - they just don't get better than this! Highest point is 70 feet, and speed is 50 mph.

Part classic wood, part modern steel combine to make Excalibur, a ride you won't soon forget! Highest point is 100 feet, speed is 54.5 mph.

Twist and turn your way through the center of Valleyfair on the aptly-named Corkscrew! Highest point is 85 feet, and speed is approximately 50 mph.

US Themeparks own Canadian themeparks. Ours are lame and boring, the most fun ride I'd say would have to be the Revelation a>http://www.pne.ca/playland/rides_games_food/rides/revelation.htm This ride is the best in Playland, (Nearest Themepark where I live) it actually does feel like you're in a jet, and it's pretty high up. But even that gets boring after a while, I can't wait to go to Disneyland, I really wanna go onto some more thrilling rides.

I'm very close to Magic Mountain.

If anyone visits magic mountain make sure to ride X. It is a very unique "X-perience".

The seats rotate freely from the train. It is very crazy, like you are moving an "X-tra" dimension (excuse all the X's, I can't resist).
