    Do you like roller coaster rides? If you do, what is the best one you have been on/where was it?

    Even if you don't like them you can still vote in the poll.

    I love rolla coasters! The bigger the better.

    Millennium force was smooth, I feel like I'm flying, and fun.

    Top thrill dragster was a "wow, I just did that" rolla coaster.

    I love roller coasters. I especially love fast, wooden roller coasters.

    I'd love to go to Cedar Point one day.

    It's a lot of fun. The boardwalk/pier feel is cool. And the rides a exceptionally good.

    I was a lone rider though. it was only the parents, grandma, and I.

    Oh god I love em The Beast and Son of the Beast are great Magnum was intense Millennium Force was outstanding Corkscrew and Gemini are still fun to go on. Oh yes almost forgot Mean Streak got to love Cedar Point and Kings Island. Can't wait to do them again. Hershey Park had a decent one just can't remember what it was.

    I love roller coasters, they just can't go on long enough for my liking :wink:
    My favourite was Air but would love to get to Thorpe Park as there are a few there that I really want to get onto!

    I considered having a day there with friends for my birthday but turns out all bar one of my friends dislike roller coasters :frowning2:

    Oh my god, I live for them. I once went to Six Flags and we spent 10 hours there because I absolutely refused to leave until I had tried every single roller coaster they had twice, and some weren't open to the public until after 4 PM or something.

    Anyway, my favorite? It's a tie between Nitro and El Toro, because my memory is kinda hazy but I remember those leaving the biggest impression on me. Shout-out to Medusa (discontinued) and BATMAN: The Ride tho for being really fun too.

    THAT SAID my favorites aren't exactly the scariest ones. Only two of the rides in all of Six Flags Great Adventure (Jackson, New Jersey) managed to spook the living shit out of me, and those were Slingshot—which isn't a roller coaster but bears mentioning for being, by far, the scariest experience I've ever had in an amusement park—and Kingda Ka, which to this day is still the World's Tallest Roller Coaster with also the World's Tallest Drop (at the time I tried it, it was still the fastest in the world too). Maaaaaaan, I'm confident that drop could make a baby out of anyone. So great. Can't wait to try it again one day.

    I love them! I remember my first loop-the-loop coaster; was when I was around 10? I can't remember where I was, but that was amaaazing. Fell in love with roller coasters since then. Always wanted to go to Six Flags and the like- the themepark here is sad, with the only proper coaster being the Battlestar Galatica.

    When I go overseas it's usually in Winter, so everything's closed = = Life goal to try a super fast coaster one day though!

    I love roller coaster rides.
    Sure I'm scared :***:less but the feeling of conquering[/] a ride by going at it 5 times in a row, getting really dizzy is fun :grin:

    Six Flags in Cali, Colossus, a long time ago, that was unforgettable. I have no idea how good it would be today though, since they rebuilt it.
    Last summer I had some rides in Düsseldorf, nothing remarkable, just fun.

    Sure I like them, the meaner the better, good adrenalin rush

    Nitro and El Toro were by far the best at Six Flags is New Jersey. Kingda Ka was good but over way too quickly.
    Went a few years back with my daughters and to Six Flags in Largo, Md. My two oldest girls and I hit every roller coaster at each park multiple times.

    Love them. I'm a massive adrenaline junkie but the UK is awful for rollercoasters and theme parks altogether. I've been on all the big rides at Chessington, Alton Towers and Thorpe Park. Out of everything I've been on though colossus at Thorpe Park is decent, Nemesis Inferno (Thorpe Park) and Nemesis (Alton Towers) are also good. I'd love to go to the massive theme parks in the US.

    My mum owes me a sky dive for my birthday so I'll have to see how that compares to rollercoasters I've been on.

    I do not like roller coaster rides at all, especially given the sensitive stomach I have. Amusement parks don't really do it for me.
